Marcelo’s new role

first_imgThe Brazilian side, at 31, lived one of his worst moments last year as a Real Madrid player, when Solari condemned him to the bench to give Reguilón ownership. His future at the club was in the air, but Zidane’s return to the bench changed everything. With the French he has recovered the smile and, although he is not an undisputed holder, he is once again an important piece in the squad.BraziliansMarcelo has become accustomed to raising white titles (go 21), although the celebration was special for the two who premiered his record as Real Madrid (Militao and Rodrygo), while Casemiro raised his thirteenth cup with Madrid. Vinicius, meanwhile, won his second trophy after the Club World Cup won last season. Marcelo is no longer indisputable to Zidane. With half of the season contested, Mendy has played more minutes than him: 1,222 ’of the French versus 825’ of the Brazilian. A new role that the coach made evident in the Spanish Super Cup, a competition in which Mendy started in both games. Marcelo barely played 19 ’and it was when the match against Valencia was fully sentenced (3-0).Despite this, the left-handed side celebrated his 21st white title with joy and without bad faces. He did it especially with the other four Brazilians of the team (Casemiro, Vinicius, Militao and Rodrygo). The tune between them is total and the most veteran (Marcelo and Casemiro) have been key in adapting the three young people who have incorporated Madrid between the current and previous years.last_img read more

Valencia – Athletic | A great draw

first_imgGoals0-1, 14 ‘: Marcos Llorente, 1-1, 39 ‘: Gabriel Paulista, 1-2, 42 ‘: Thomas, 2-2, 58 ‘: Kondogbia But Llorente has raised his forehead and Atleti then too. Valencia watched him shrunk. No pass, no connections, heartless, as if still in Getafe. It didn’t matter that Parejo delayed his position, to help, try to steal, distribute, for nothing, all in vain. The Atleti filled every corner, with ball and without ball, coral. Valencia only found mines on the roads to Oblak, which has velcro on the gloves, capable of keeping every ball that flies over its area like lost bullets. As with football he could not, he tried the Valencia corner kick, which Celades has in his team a soccer player with the peephole, Parejo. In the nth he shot the second stick that nobody expected. He received Maxi, who focused on the heart of the area, where Paulista was waiting to put his head in. 1-1. Blow by blow. Impossible to stop FerranFerran sneaked into Lodi in the area as soon as the second part began and caused an immediate movement in the Cholo. Vrsaljko inside, Arias on the left. Atletico was bleeding again from the wound lately, the ball stopped. He forced the foul Soler and, as soon as Parejo threw it, the danger swirled over Oblak. No rojiblanco knew how to get that bomb out of his air, Kondogbia finished it, from the ground, as if crying. It was worth the same. Electricity was cut in the air. I was in the frantic exchange of disputes and careers. Valencia getting faster, getting better. “Pressure makes diamonds,” said General Patton. And Ferran kept shining. A dagger on the right.Simeone was now taking Arias away, to see if with Saul he was able to stop him, but neither, even if he had put all his men in front of him. There were minutes for Morata and that order between the roar: balls by looking for him. But the whole ball of Valencia, was played at the feet of Oblak, what Ferran wanted. Your football is well worth the cost of an entry. Your dribbles, a torture, your goal gifts passes… But first Gameiro sent him to the clouds and then Maxi too. And Simeone responded with more gunpowder, Carrasco, but Thomas could no longer find a goal with a cannon shot. And Vrsaljko found Morata but his header cleared Jaume.The game was coming. Without truce, there is no war. Valencia was running in stampede, throwing Gayà in front of Oblak. But he always stamped with the goalkeeper, the best Cholo armor. THe ended the game with Celades losing another man, Paulista, ankle. Bruised were the rest, all others, bruised but firm, with a point that nobody serves at all, in a draw that was great, in this battle on the banks of the Turia. Atlético did not accuse him. He got up, cleaned his clothes and turned his eyes back to Jaume. Two minutes later Simeone was back in front. He had beaten his particular ‘thomashawk’. Most effective impossible: two shots, two goals. ChangesVrsaljko (52 ‘, Renan Augusto), Gameiro (59 ‘, Gonçalo Guedes), Morata (65 ‘, Santiago Arias), Carrasco (76 ‘, Koke), Cheryshev (79 ‘, Carlos Soler), Mouctar Diakhaby (93 ‘, Gabriel Paulista) The battle for the Champions on the banks of the Turia began at nine o’clock at night. The brush of the ball with the grass sounded like bugles. Nerves filled the field, the two similar teams. Rushed, but brave, looking at each play the rival. He played many games that Atletico did not come out with such high pressure. Valencia was trembling at the start of the ball. A Valencia with Guedes disguised as Rodrigo and Mangala occupying the gap left by Garay’s lack. Del Cholo was the beginning. His weapon was called rhombus.Thus he ordered his midfielders. Koke hitch, Thomas anchor, Saul on his left and Llorente on his right. An omnipresent Llorente. That stole, folded and hovered. Around his name Mestalla chewed danger. It was after a robbery, a pass back from Vitolo and a center of Correa. It was that the ball touched in Paulista, that he did not succeed to clear, and Llorente was at the penalty spot, camouflaged with the suit of ‘9’. He knew how to tame the bounced ball. His goal helps to leave behind several ghosts. The red against Chivas, the lack of minutes, all his races with his head bowed and his mind braced.

UEFA talks about finishing leagues and Champions beyond the summer

first_imgUEFA is confident of being able to finish off what remains of the big leagues (Spain, England, Germany, France and Italy) and what is missing from Champions starting in June. In a telematic meeting with the 55 European federations (the RFEF was represented by its Secretary General, Andreu Camps), It was agreed to suspend the team friendlies scheduled for the first week of June in order to win dates on the calendar. They are considered lost due to the pandemic in April and May, in which depending on the progress of the Covid-19 and the decision of the respective governments in this regard, it is expected that the teams can resume training and start a ‘preseason’ that will put them in a position to compete in June.LaLiga and the Premier stated in the telematic conclave organized by UEFA that their priority is to finish the national competition and the current Champions, even beyond the summer occupying part of the calendar of the season 20-21. But both they refused to make it in exchange for sacrificing the Cup competition, as was raised at one point in the meeting by one of the working groups created by UEFA. However, no one refused to allow part of the FIFA team dates to be occupied, and as a first step the friendlies in June have been suspended, the month in which Spain had a match against Portugal scheduled (day 5, in the Wanda Metropolitano ) and another against Lithuania (9, in Santander). One of the problems posed by ending this season in August or even at the dates of the next, that is, in September, is that the duration of the contracts of the players and coaches should be extended beyond June 30, which it is even more conflictive in the case of the transfers. While FIFA is willing to adapt the rules to take account of this circumstance, the World Players Union (FIFPro) warns that if so, the measure must be universal and reach all footballers, not just those that clubs want to retain.In addition, FIFPro also intervened in the discussions on the calendar, as the clubs raise the need to recover dates next Christmas, and play, as England does with Boxing Day). But the players union does not see it clearly. It poses serious difficulties, especially in the case of players from other continents (particularly South America and Africa) who are active in teams from Europe and who return home on those dates. There was no agreement on this matter, but negotiations will continue.Finally, and also without reaching a definitive agreement, it was agreed to continue working on the calendar as the pandemic progresses and a clearer scenario is seen. In any case, UEFA does not rule out, if the current season invades the dates of the next, ask the Club Association (ECA), the European Leagues and the players to accept cuts in the format of the National Championships, which would reduce the number of teams. A cut in selection dates would also be negotiated with FIFA. Because, ultimately, although it has become clear that this season the priority is to finish the leagues and the Champions, the priority in the next one it will be to celebrate the UEFA European Championship and fit the Club World Cup into the calendar from FIFA.last_img read more

‘France Football’: “For Mané it’s Real Madrid or nothing”

first_imgBut with a contract with the Reds until 2023, his departure from Anfield is more than complicated. Signed in 2016 from Southampton in exchange for 34 million euros after a stupendous season (15 goals and nine assists), Mané has become a basic piece in the scheme of Jürgen Klopp and one of the great dangers of Liverpool champion of Europe ( this season he has 18 goals and 12 assists). A hypothetical transfer would be around amounts that Madrid is not willing to pay now, especially after the economic blow that this coronavirus crisis is assuming. “Liverpool is not a selling club, but in case of negotiation, the player’s current valuation is estimated at around 150 million euros,” he writes. France Football … “For Sadio Mané, Real Madrid or nothing.” With this striking headline, France Football analyzes the situation in the market of the Senegalese striker for Liverpool. The 28-year-old player has been installed in rumors for two years about the possible Madrid signings. It was precisely the French magazine that lit the wick in 2018. “Mané was going to be the first signing of Zidane for 2019-20”, was the news of France Football. The media reported at the time that the resignation of the coach stopped the operation. Two years later, he says that Mané’s dream is to wear the Madrid shirt one day …To the African star, always according France Football, he would have had a bitter taste this season after failing to win the Ballon d’Or after an extraordinary campaign. He hoped to succeed George Weah, the only African so far to win this award (1995), but he was fourth behind Cristiano, his teammate Van Dijk and Messi, winner. That disappointment, together with statements by Klopp in which he said that Van Dijk deserved the Ballon d’Or, could affect when making a decision for the future. His teammate Keita Baldé, asked by AS if Madrid is a team that could tempt Mané, said: “It depends on many things. I don’t know what his decision is. In a year or two, maybe he will want to change and I don’t think he wants to be there all his life. He is a smart boy and he knows what is best for him and what he has to do … ”. A month ago, Momo Sissoko, a former Valencia player, surprised when he stated in an interview in Italy: “I think Mané will go to Madrid …”.last_img read more

The riddle of Zarra’s goal: pure interior, shin or ankle?

first_imgThe third party of the group was disputed. Spain came from beating the United States (3-1) and Chile (2-0). England had lost against all odds against the Americans and defeated the ‘Red’ in South America. Guillermo Eizaguirre and his men in red were satisfied with the draw to be first in the group and go to the second phase and fight for the title.The English’s obligation to win was reflected from the beginning with a brilliant and aggressive start, also promoted by a wet and very fast grass. It was evident that they had a great team with established players such as Stanley Matthews, who was then 35 years old and who would win the first Ballon d’Or in 1956, along with Ramsey, Bentley, Finney … Piru GainzaGainza disputed 33 parties with the Selection in which it marked 10 goals. It was a very fast left winger and he always looked at the opposite goal. He formed alongside Iriondo (far right), Venancio (right inside), Zarra (center forward) and Panizo (left inside) a mythical Athletic forward. Among the five they scored 848 goals in the League and Cup. Only Venancio was out of the call for the 1950 World Cup in Brazil. Spain was returning to a World Cup 16 years after Italy 34. It had not been present in France 38 due to the Civil War and then came the hiatus of the Second World War. For the English it was their debut. Antoni Ramallets, in goal, without gloves and with knee pads, confirming with his stops and, above all, with his starts, the confidence that the coach had given him. The Barca goalkeeper had not been a starter in the first game of the World Cup, Ignacio Eizaguirre played, but the other Eizaguirre, Guillermo, the coach, gave him his favor in the second match against Chile and repeated against the English. The reaction of the English who were out of the World Cup is described as furious and the last quarter of an hour of the National Team with total control of the match is defined as spectacular. Panizo is charged with a shot to the crossbar and Zarra another to the post, but the game ends with that solitary goal by the Basque striker, on whom so many liters of ink have been dedicated.Since 1929, Spain had not been able to win back to England. By It is impossible to have a minimal notion of football and not to have heard, heard, read or dreamed about Telmo Zarraonaindia’s goal for England in the 1950 World Cup. It was at the legendary and legendary Maracanã stadium in Rio de Janeiro. Both assured the Spanish team to be among the first four, as it was finally, after tying with Uruguay and losing the last two games against Brazil and Sweden.That fourth place turned out to be the best achieved by Spain in a World Championship until 60 years later he achieved the star in the World Cup in South Africa with another goal for history, that of Iniesta in Johannesburg.The 1950 World Cup in Brazil will be remembered especially for two goals. The most important was the Uruguayan Gigghia in the final against Brazil that made the unforgettable Maracanazo possible, but el ours ’, that of Zarra to England, meant beating the team that was one of the best teams of the moment. Or at least that’s how they considered themselves. Three p.m. Maracana was not full, Brazil was not playing, but it was packed. Spain, red shirt and blue pants. England, in black and white. Piru Gainza, who was in doubt, was the Spanish captain. Choose the opponent field, put the ball into play Zarra. The two teams under the same tactical pattern, the 1-3-2-5 of the time, which in terms of occupying the spaces had a better staggering of men between the lines.Gonzalvo III, a flying theorist, was embedded in the defense to avoid inferiority. Alonso and Gonzalvo II were in charge of the English extreme theorists, Finney and Mathews. Puchades linked with Panizo and Igoa. Zarra was the offensive reference with Basora and Gainza working the entire band. Zarra’s goal seen from another angle. What is not so clear is with what part of his limb the striker hit the ball. In interviews given after the event, he himself leaves different versions. The blurred and black-and-white images, as they correspond to the time, hint that he touched the ball with the inside of his foot, but it could have been with the upper part of the ankle or the pimple itself, which Zarra called cane.Always witty in one of the thousand opportunities in which he was asked about the goal for the rest of his life, he joked about whether the goal had been half scored between Matías Prats, official narrator, and him. “It seems to me that we marked it between the two. With the verbiage he has, he must have misled Williams, who jumped to his left so that I could shoot the other way. ” The second head of Europe after ChurchillTelmo Zarra, who would be 100 years old on January 20, 2021, must be treated as a lord, used and voiced as soon as the conversation is about scorers. The highest historical scorer in the League with 251 goals in 277 games, 0.91 on average, only Leo Messi, in November 2014, was able to break the record reaching 253 in 289 games, 0.87 on average.In the National Team, he played 20 matches between March 11, 1945 (Portugal-Spain, 2-2 at the Jamor National Stadium) and June 17, 1951 (Sweden-Spain, 0-0, Rasunda Stadium in Stockholm ) and garnered 20 goals, with a tally of four goals (6-3 against Switzerland) and five doublets. He scored four goals in the six games of the World Cup in Brazil, three in the two matches of the qualifying phase and 13 in the 12 friendlies he played. The starting eleven who beat England poses before the start of the match: standing, Ramallets, Gonzalvo III, Alonso, Gonzalvo II and Puchades. Crouched, Basra, Igoa, Zarra, Panizo, Gaínza and Parra. Precisely in his last international match, posters announcing the match with the photo of Zarra and a legend: “Admire the best head in Europe after Churchill” could be found on the streets of Stockholm. To the amusement of the interested party, his reputation as a header had crossed borders and reached the Nordic countries where, as good lovers of British football, they especially valued the aerial game. Over time, Telmo confessed that when he began to play he was afraid to finish with that part of the body and that he did not learn to pitch until he arrived at Athletic and Iriondo and Gainza bombarded centers in training sessions.In fact, he was so afraid of the collisions with the rival defenders that he based his entire game on the anticipation and the unmarking and thus arrive with an advantage to the auction area and with the defenses as far as possible from contact. Also on the elaboration of both there are several versions. The longest narrates that after the service with the hand of Ramallets on Gonzalvo III, the ball passed through Gainza, Panizo, Puchades, again Gainza, a cut by the English Wright happens and the ball ends at the feet of Gabriel Alonso. From here there are images and the short version.The lateral runs his band and when he reaches the vertex of the large area, he centers past the furthest post, where Gainza appears, following the play that leaves the ball dead, Igoa does not reach the auction in the first instance, but Zarra does. The world turned upside down, Gainza turning Zarra upside down, when it would have been normal for the winger to center with his left foot and the battering ram finished off with a head. Matías Prats CañeteThe legendary journalist was one of the best-known voices on Spanish radio between the 40s and 70s. He was a narrator of the NO-DO and his particular way of broadcasting soccer games and bullfights created school in Spanish journalism. He not only relayed Zarra’s goal, but also Marcelino’s to the USSR that gave Spain its first Eurocup. RamalletsHe was baptized ‘El Gato de Maracaná’ after his magnificent performance against the English team. Throughout his career, he was the least goal-scoring goalkeeper in the League five times wearing the Barcelona shirt. He played 35 games with Spain in which he conceded 51 goals. ‘Uncle’ BenitoGuillermo Eizaguirre was officially the national coach, but the figure of Benito Díaz as a field coach was always highly valued by the internationals who played in that World Cup, to the point that they considered him the true ‘brain’ of the technical team.The tactics section was on his side and he was always considered a scholar of the matter and especially of the WM being one of his great defenders in Spanish football. He trained Real Sociedad at the same time as he was in charge of the National Team and at the end of his career he could not shake off the reputation of a defensive coach. The obituary of Daily HeraldThe defeat of the ‘pross’ was so traumatic that the following day the Labor newspaper “Daily Herald” published the following note: “Our affectionate memory of English football, who died in Rio de Janeiro on July 2, 1950. A large circle friends regrets his painful loss. R.I.P. Note: The body will be cremated and its ashes transferred to Spain ». Ramallets stops a shot by the English during the first part of the match. The party went to rest with a goalless draw. Spain was worth it. Not the English. As soon as the second part began, the thousand versions arrived. Even, it was gotten to comment, due to the fame of headboard that Zarra had, that the goal had been with the head. No, it was with his right leg, to boat soon, that is indisputable.last_img read more

Materazzi confesses: everything that unleashed Zidane’s header

first_imgThis summer will be the 14th anniversary of Germany World Cup 2006 that Italy conquered in the penalty shootout against France and that has gone down in history for Zidane’s header to Materazzi which cost him the direct red card in the extra time of the match.An action that will always haunt both and that the Italian defender has remembered again during an interview in which He has revealed how everything was triggered and the words that originated the headbutt: “Zidane’s header? I wasn’t expecting it at the time. I was lucky not to wait for that episode, because if we had been prepared, we would both have ended up in the locker room,” said the then-Inter defender. “We had a contact in the area. He scored the goal for France in the first half and the coach (Marcello Lippi) asked me to score. After the first shock I apologized and he reacted badly”, Materazzi recalls. The clashes between the two continued and then, in the 110th minute of the final, everything was unleashed. “In the third shock I frowned at him and he said, ‘I’ll give you my shirt later.’ I replied that I preferred his sister over his shirt.”.Nothing else to hear, Zidane retraced his steps towards Materrazi. It happened then it is one of the most famous incidents in football history.last_img read more
