prepares to take England to next level

Gareth Southgate has paid tribute to the Football Association for adopting his long-term vision for England’s future, as the national manager, fresh from steering his young side to fourth place at the World Cup, targets the next stage of his team’s development. England returned to Birmingham on Sunday having emulated best finish at a tournament on foreign soil. http://www.officialbengalsfootballprosho…ARD_JERSEY.htmlSouthgate intends ...

Croatia’s sliding-door moment

Pyry Soiri is a name that will sound vaguely familiar to regular followers of the Croatia team but most others in the country – in particular those who have jumped on the bandwagon as they have made their way to a World Cup final – are unlikely to have heard of him. But the 23-year-old Finnish player with a Namibian father, who plays for Shakhtyor Soligorsk in the Belarussian Premier League, had a key role in Croatia’s ascent to the top. It is probably safe to say that none of this – hordes of f...

claim third place against

Three days…_Carrick_Jerseyon the sense of regret is just as raw. Gareth Southgate has done all he can to re-energise his England squad for the third-place play-off, such a cruel commitment in the context of what might Roman Josi Youth jersey have been, but he still found himself squinting at his laptop in the small hours of Friday morning, poring over yet another re‑run of the defeat by Croatia, wincing through that period in the second half when, for the...

Antonio Conte’s exit suited him

Given all the squabbling behind the scenes, and the discontent Authentic Malcom Brown Jersey which has festered on both sides, it was appropriate the divorce should end up seeming rather undignified. Antonio Conte finally took his leave of http://www.detroitredwingsofficialonline…Dekeyser-Jersey Chelsea on Thursday, with news of his departure inevitably leaked from his native Italy. The official club statement will follow at some stage, possibly burying the bad news beneath confirmation of the a...

breaking barriers for fans

Two couples are placed opposite each other at the one remaining table in a bar by the Volga. One is Russian and the other Brazilian; it quickly turns out there is no common language but the semaphore for “anyone fancy a beer?” is universal enough and, besides, the football is on. They could probably get by for the evening on visual cues and repeat mentions of Harry Kane, but England v Colombia works better as background entertainment and the local man has an idea. Out comes a smartphone; a few t...

Didier Deschamps jerseys

Almost 20 years to the day since France beat Brazil 3-0 in Paris to win their first and only World Cup, the man who captained a team that united a nation moved to within 90 minutes of getting his hands on the trophy again. Triumphant as a player back in 1998, Didier Deschamps now has the opportunity to become only the third man to repeat that feat as a manager, following in the footsteps of Brazil’s Mário Zagallo and Franz Beckenbauer, the German. Players, not just managers, win World Cup matche...

ready to go World Cup crazy again

Put out more flags. Remove the creases from your St George’s Cross jester’s hat. Prepare to launch a pint of lukewarm lager towards the ceiling. England are ready to go again. On Wednesday night Gareth Southgate’s team will walk out at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow to play England’s first World Cup semi-final in 28 years. Their opponents Croatia are ranked six places lower by Fifa. For Southgate and his players a moment of rare sporting crisis awaits. If the last few days have been marked by a ...

the spot for Croatia against

Ivan Rakitic has not always been the coolest man in world football. Maybe it was the dog that did it, maybe it was his wife or maybe it was his mother-in-law. He delivered the perfect riposte, that is for sure. Not long after the midfielder missed a vital penalty for Sevilla against Rayo Vallecano, in 2012, sending the ball well wide of the right post, victory denied, his phone beeped. A message landed from Puri, literally a mother-in-law joke. He opened it to see a photo of his golden retriever...

spirit of England’s winged wonders

We’re on our way, we’re on our way. We’re going to Moscow. Or at least, that’s what they say – over and over in the England end through five games, to date, of 2018. It turns out the fans were right all along, too. England will now head to the capital on Wednesday to play at least once at the agreeably huge Luzhniki Stadium, the ohmic heart New York Islanders Womens Jersey of this continental‑scale tournament. Whatever happens from ...

Willian steps into the limelight

From the Seleção, a selection box of treats. While their rivals falter, beset by rusting parts and in some cases complete mechanical failure, Brazil roll on and their claim to a sixth World Cup now looks more persuasive than at any point in the past four years. The strut of champions-elect is returning and, as players and staff piled on after Roberto Firmino’s far-post tap-in, it did not take an outrageous leap to envisage similar scenes unfolding 13 days down the line when this often bewilderin...

The hosts, who are the lowest-ranked team in the tournament, produced the biggest upset so far by beating Spain, a giant of the game and world champions eight years ago.

Gareth Southgate looks to lay ghost

It was inevitable that, at some point, the conversation with Gareth Southgate would turn to the most harrowing ordeal of his professional life and the reasons why the England manager, after two decades of living with the consequences, is so determined to make sure his team will not fall into the same trap. Southgate was thinking back to that night against Germany in the semi-final of Euro 96, http://www.authenticpittsburghpiratessho…ng-Marte-Jersey with the game drawn 1-1, and the traumatic even...

Defeating England is not a priority

Roberto Martínez struck a different tone to Gareth Southgate by claiming winning their final group game against England is not a priority and insisting protecting his players from injury and suspension was of greater importance. With passage to the knockout stage assured for both teams, the Belgium manager could make as many as 10 changes to the side who comfortably defeated Tunisia. Martínez confirmed Romelu Lukaku, who has scored four goals in the tournament, will miss the match with an ankle ...

Germany’s structural flaw

This has been a difficult start to the World Cup for Germany but there are two positives. First, they have their own destiny in their hands and would go through to the knockout phase with a two-goal win against South Korea. And second, their problems are readily identifiable: a midfield that does not protect the defence in transition and a forward line that, so far, has lacked an edge. Jogi Löw, the Germany manager, has been concerned enough to have “a lengthy chat” with Thomas Müller. “After th...

Marcos Rojo’s late goal seals Argentina

And so, when it came to it, when it seemed all was lost, Argentina’s hero appeared. His name, this time, was Marcos Rojo. With the Albiceleste on the verge of elimination, the scene before them horribly familiar, songs dying in thousands of throats and the final three minutes beginning, the Manchester Womens Chase Utley Jersey United defender arrived to guide a wonderful volley into the corner and send them through to the last 16. Their progress comes at the cost of a Nigeria side who had come f...

Socceroos' time of transition sees

Bert draws a blank,” the Courier-Mail’s back page screamed after Australia’s 1-1 draw with Denmark. “Golden opportunity goes begging as Socceroos coach leaves our greatest goal-scorer sitting on the bench,” went the standfirst. But the Queensland tabloid wasn’t the only one unhappy as Tim Cahill received zero minutes in Australia’s two World Cup matches to date. The Daily Telegraph’s sports editor-at-large accused head coach Bert van Marwijk of disrespecting Cahill by leaving him out. Former Soc...

Argentina on brink

Jorge Sampaoli held his head in his hands. Lionel Messi stared at the floor. The rest of the Argentina players were speechless, standing with hands on hips and gazing aimlessly into space as wild Croatia celebrations broke out all around. Luka Modric had just filed a contender for the goal of the tournament showreel and twisted the knife in the process, leaving Argentina, twice world champions, on the brink of elimination. By the time Ivan Rakitic added a third, in the 91st minute, Argentina wer...

Ten things we have learned from

The political tensions and all the other issues with the Russian government will still be there when the World Cup leaves town, but it’s likely that a lot of people will depart Russia with great memories and a changed view of the country. Russia is putting on its best, most smiling face for the month: people are excited to welcome the tournament and the fans, and so far at least that is leading to overwhelmingly positive vibes. The cheap beer and warm sunshine in most host cities is not hinderin...

Forgotten man Falcao determined

Images from the 2014 World Cup are seared into the mind and from Colombia’s point of view they invariably revolve around James Rodríguez , the poster boy who won the Golden Boot, scored the goal of the tournament with that sumptuous volley against Uruguay and broke down in tears on the pitch after his dream came to an end against Brazil in the quarter-finals. Four years on and Rodríguez and Colombia are strutting back on to the global stage with those garish yellow shirts, only now there is anot...

Lack of expectation leaves

Ahead of Australia’s fifth World Cup participation, starting with a tough opener against France on Saturday, it’s hard to articulate the precise mood or narrative surrounding Bert van Marwijk’s Socceroos. The remarkable story of the trailblazers of 1974 has been well documented: Australia’s first and only successful involvement over the first 17 iterations of this unique global sporting spectacular. Pioneers that escaped the mire of Australian football, with its peripheral place in our collectiv...
