Tom Latham was the first batter who got out scoring just 6 runs. Next on the list was Will Young who made 20 runs. R Ashwin is to be credited for all three wickets. It was the perfect partnership between Henry Nicholls and Daryl Mitchell that gave the New Zealand team a ray of hope. Mitchell also made his 2nd Test century but got dismissed soon.

Top 10 most watched football leagues in the world

10. Chinese Super League 

Our list kicks off with the Chinese Super League, with 24,107 people attending games on average. More than a million viewers watch the league from across the world, and it is the largest league in all of Asia. 

9. Eredivisie 

The Dutch Eredivisie averages attendances worth 18,010 people in stadiums. It is known for its total football philosophy and produces outstanding young players. Many of them have gone on to make a big impact in the top clubs. But, due to the lower popularity of the other teams in comparison to the likes of Ajax, PSV and Feyenoord, the viewership is relatively low. 

8. Brasileiro Serie A 

The Brazilian Serie A is the top flight of football in the country. Players like Neymar and Vinicius Jr have come through the league. Due to the passionate football fans in the country, the average attendance is around 43,458. 

7. Bundesliga 

The German Bundesliga boasts of having one of the fastest match paces and the most goals, despite having 18 teams. Football in Germany has a very unique framework, and the league is watched by 361,000 people on average. This number goes up for the big games of the season, of course. 

6. Major League Soccer 

Interestingly, the American league ranks higher than Bundesliga and Eredivisie in terms of viewership. There are 27 total teams in the league, divided into the Eastern and Western conferences due to the size of the country. The league is watched by around 2 million people on average. 

5. Serie A 

The Italian Serie A was once the undisputed best league in the world. But now, it’s status has diminished a little. Regardless, it boasts of having European giants like AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus and Napoli. A number of icons have played in the league, and it draws a viewership of around 2 million. 

4. Liga Apertura 

The most surprising inclusion in the list is the Mexican top flight, the Liga Apertura. On an average, 3.7 million people watch the league. The attendance in stadiums is around 25,000 on average. The Liga Apertura bears a semblance to the style of football played in Spain and Brazil, and is slowly starting to grow in size. 

3. Ligue 1 

The French Ligue 1 boasts of the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Sergio Ramos. After the arrival of Messi, the viewership has spiked up a lot, with 10.5m viewers watching the league on average. Before the takeover of PSG, the league was a very unpredictable competition. 

2. La Liga 

el clasico

Boasting of two of the biggest clubs in the world, Barcelona and Real Madrid, the Spanish La Liga takes second place. Around 76 million viewers from across the world watch the league on average. And with the likes of Atletico Madrid, Sevilla, Villarreal and Real Sociedad also competing for the top spots, the league has become much more competitive now. 

1. Premier League 

The Premier League is the clear winner in terms of viewership when it comes to the top football leagues. It is also the most difficult league in the world due to the quality of the games and teams competing.

Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo: The debate in terms of their best seasons

0

Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo is a debate that will never end. The pair have received 12 of the last 13 Ballon d’Or awards, with Luka Modric inserting himself in between in 2018. In 2021, it is safe to say that they are past their prime years, with Ronaldo at 36 and Messi, 34. 

A number of attempts have been made to address the debate from a unique perspective. And in this article, we try to compare the two icons in their best ever seasons across all competitions. 

Lionel Messi peaked in 2011/12, scored 73 goals across all competitions. Cristiano Ronaldo, on the other hand, scored 61 goals in all competitions. The two players had the same number of assists in La Liga, with 16 each. The Real Madrid forward has more shots per game than his Argentinian rival. 

When you assess their metrics further, it seems clear that Messi seems to win across all of them, emerging as the more complete player over the season. 

The Champions League is often the deciding factor in terms of sheer goalscoring metrics, and Messi outweighs his rival there as well, with 14 goals in the Champions League in one less game. Surprisingly, neither player won the European Cup despite their players having the best seasons of their careers. 

Had we compared it to Ronaldo’s 13/14 season, he would have been much better off in terms of the metrics in the Champions League. But to pin down the prime of two unbelievably consistent players is so difficult that it can barely silence the debate for the future.

Barcelona’s best ever XI in history

0

Although they are currently in a difficult place, Barcelona are one of the biggest clubs in the world. And over the years, they have had several iconic players don the Blaugrana colours. According to Onefootball, here is the lineup of the best Barcelona players in the history of the club. 

GK: Andoni Zubizarreta 

In 8 seasons with Barcelona, Zubizarreta played 410 games and kept the most clean sheets in the history of the league with 235. During his time, he won four league titles with the club. 

RB: Dani Alves 

Dani Alves’ first spell at Barcelona saw him earn a place amongst the greatest right-backs of all time. And now, he has returned to the club to help them with their new chapter. 

CB: Carles Puyol 

Carles Puyol might not have had the best physical stature of all the central defenders in the world, but he gave it his all whenever he was on the pitch. Puyol made 682 appearances for the club and won 18 titles, finishing as the captain. 

CB: Ronald Koeman 

FC Barcelona legend, Ronald Koeman officially announced as next Barça coach

As a player, Ronald Koeman was one of the best central defenders of his time. He scored an outstanding 88 goals in 264 games for them, which is a record that most forwards are not able to deliver. 

LB: Sigfrid Gràcia 

Gracia played for the club between 1949 and 1966. He made 536 appearances and scored 23 goals from the left-back position, and helped the team win three league titles. 

DM: Sergio Busquets 

Sergio Busquets now dons the armband for the club, and is still featuring for his boyhood club regularly. At 33, Busquets remains one of the most composed defensive midfielders on the ball and provides a layer of security to the defense. 

CM: Xavi 

xavi

The current manager of the club is etched in Barcelona history as one of its greatest ever midfielders. The player used to dictate the tempo whenever he stepped onto the field, and played 767 times for Barcelona. 

AM: Johan Cruyff 

Johan Cruyff is THE man that completely changed football. The Dutchman is respected as one of the best footballing minds to have ever played the sport, and he featured for Barcelona 180 times during his career, netting 60 goals. 

LW: Ronaldinho 

During his playing days, watching Ronaldinho with the ball at his feet was quite simply, magic. The Brazilian didn’t have the longest spell at Barcelona, but was unplayable when he was one-on-one with a defender. 

RW: Lionel Messi 

Messi recently won his seventh Ballon d’Or, as predicted by the legendary Johan Cruyff. The Argentinian is, in the books of many, the greatest to ever lace up a pair of boots, and was the easiest pick in the list. 

ST: László Kubala 

Kubala completes the lineup by leading the front three, scoring 194 times between 1650 and 1961. He holds the record for the most goals scored by a Barcelona player in a single league game, with 7 against Sporting de Gijón in 1952. 

Top 5 players that retired from football too early

0

The average age of retirement in football is 35. A number of players have the longevity to play above that mark, such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. But, there are a number of players that hang up their boots way too early. Here are the top five players that retired from football too early. 

Eric Cantona 

The Manchester United legend is among the greatest to ever play for the club, and was the leader of Alex Ferguson’s revolution. The player hung up his boots at 30, after a rather turbulent club and international career. 

Marco van Basten 

The three-time Ballon d’Or winner scored 282 goals in just 379 club games for Ajax and AC Milan. He was one of the best strikers in the world during the 1980s and 90s. After struggling with an ankle injury, he retired from football at the age of 31. 

Michel Platini 

While Platini after football is known for being a corrupt UEFA President, he was one of the best on the planet. He featured for Juventus and St Etienne, and won three Ballon d’Or awards. But, he had to retire at the age of 32. 

Patrick Kluivert 

Kluivert made a name for himself as an 18-year-old, scoring in the 1995 Champions League against Juventus to win the trophy. He featured for AC Milan and Barcelona most prominently, and retired from football aged 32 in 2008. 

George Best 

George Best is one of the most infamous names in football. On the pitch, he resembled sheer brilliance with the ball at his feet. But off of it, he struggled to cope with an alcohol addiction that proved to be his downfall at the ripe age of 28. 

INDIA vs NEW ZEALAND, 1st Test: Match drawn

0

The first test between India and new Zealand finally ended in a draw at Green park, Kanpur. The next test series will be held in Wankhede stadium, Mumbai.

Shreyas Iyer gets awarded as the Man of the Match. He stated that ”  It’s a great feeling, but if we won the game it could have been the icing on the cake. The wicket was still intact. My mindset was just to play the sessions. People say I’m very flamboyant and don’t control my instincts, but this time I decided to play for the team. It really helped the way Ashwin, Jadeja and Saha contributed. I am really proud of the way we turned things around. I’m really happy with the overall performance of the team. Pressure is always there. They got off to a great start, played two sessions very positively. Once we got a sniff, we saw that as a moment to attack, and we made the best use of the situation.”

It has been a fantastic finish to India vs New Zealand first test in Kanpur. David Warner has been bewildered by the result. Warner even highlighted the charm of Test cricket.

He tweeted “How good is Test cricket!! 5 days, tough cricket played by both teams and it ends in a draw. That’s why we love it. Can’t wait for the 2nd test in Mumbai. #india #newzealand I can’t wait for the Ashes!!

Debutant Shreyas Iyer had an amazing start to his test career. He scored a century in first innings and scored 50 in the second. Ravindra Jadeja hit a half century as well. Tim Southee from New Zealand picked up five wickets . Tom Latham registered two fifties in the match.

India set a target of 284 runs to win. On the final day, New Zealand played amazing session without losing a single wicket, before India had a comeback and got eight wickets. Rachin Ravindra and Ajaz Patel made it a draw by playing the last 52 balls smartly.

Ramos and Messi finally play in the same team as PSG win vs St Etienne

0

Sergio Ramos was handed his debut for PSG in the game against St Etienne, which ended in a 3-1 victory for the visitors. The goals started coming in after Timothee Kolodziejczack was sent off for a lunging challenge on Kylian Mbappe, who had broken free. After dragging his studs past Mbappe’s knee, there was no disputing the call. 

Lionel Messi did not get on the scoresheet, but provided a hat-trick of assists in the game. He set up two goals for Marquinhos, and one for Argentina national teammate Angel Di Maria. 

The Ballon d’Or is being awarded tomorrow, and Messi has clearly shown that he is the most complete forward out there, and can do much more than score goals. But, one picture that football fans would’ve never imagined is Sergio Ramos and Lionel Messi playing in the same team. 

Messi was the captain of Barcelona, while Ramos wore the armband for their arch rivals Real Madrid. The Spaniard has bullied Messi on the pitch time and time again, when the two teams have met. But they are both professionals of the highest level. 

And that is exactly what we saw today, as the two rivals set aside their past differences to achieve a victory. 

The concern for Mauricio Pochettino towards the end of the game, though, will be the situation of Neymar. The Brazilian had to be stretched off after a rather nasty looking injury, and will probably be out for a considerable amount of time. 

Bob Biswas is better than Vidya Balan’s Kahaani: Abhishek Bachchan said this with all due respect to Sujoy Ghosh

0

Bob Biswas, the character of the 2012’s film named Kahaani by Sujoy Ghosh has left an indelible impression on the audience. Although Kahaani has picked up our jaws off the floor with its amazing sinister plot twists. Bob Biswas was a contract killer, who was just a face in the crowd and killed with clinical perfection. Almost after 11 years, Bob Biswas is getting its much-awaited spin-off and this time, the character of Bob Biswas was played by Abhishek Bachchan.

Bachchan while having a chat with indianexpress.com has described Bob Biswas as a “crime thriller” which has turned out to be quite a “cool” film. The film Bob Biswas is an upcoming film written by Sujoy Ghosh and directed by his daughter Diya Annapurna Ghosh. Bob Biswas in this film follows the same titular character, who was used to be hired to kill people but it seems he had lost all his memories of the past.

Abhishek Bachchan has said that Sujoy has shared the concept of the film while writing the script and as soon as he heard the script, he said yes. Abhishek has shared, “I asked him who was going to make it and he said Diya, and I said yes. I hadn’t heard the script by then. I said yes more on emotional grounds because it is Diya and Sujoy is a dear friend.” Later, when he read the script, he found it to be “fantastic.”

Bob Biswas is better than Kahanni

The character Bob Biswas’s fandom has been spread since it has first appeared on the silver screen. The spin-off of the character has been requested by many fans for a very long time, finally, it is now going to release, unlike many fans, Abhishek also did not know about the character. He said, “I didn’t know about this character Bob Biswas. And I said yes not knowing about the character that Sujoy had put in his film. In fact, he had not even seen Kahaani until he had shot for almost 80 per cent of the film.”

He further shared, “I saw Kahaani last year during the lockdown for the first time. I finished almost 80 per cent of the shoot, then we had to break because of the lockdown, and halfway through, one day I finally said that ‘okay, let me see this film,'” he shared. But after watching Kahaani and Bob Biswas both, he is certain that their film is going to be a better one. He has also said, “I think our film is better. With all due respect to Sujoy, his daughter (Diya) is better than him.”

Abhishek has described while talking about Sujoy’s writing in the film that it is “edgy and cool”. He further shared, “You see Bob Biswas and he could be a simple guy next door, he could be travelling next to you on the train and you won’t really know who he is or what he is doing. Sujoy has made that entire world so edgy and cool. My personal opinion after having seen the film is that it is a very cool film. I think the youth of the country is really going to enjoy this film”.

Here we present the trailer:-

Abhishek has also shared that Bob Biswas was initially intended for a theatrical release but the makers “had to adapt and evolve” as per the changing times. He has shared that “I really feel Bob Biswas is one of those very few and unique films that kind of appeals to both kinds of audience. It’s perfectly suited for a ZEE5 kind of a platform, perfectly suited for the kind of audience that consumes content on digital streaming services. It was originally intended for a theatrical release so it perfectly fits there as well. So it’s one of those very few films that can fit in any which way”.

He further added, “I can understand certain filmmakers and actors, who might not be entirely content about their film coming on an OTT platform because their film wasn’t designed in that way. I think Bob Biswas is one of those films that, as long as it comes out and gets to the audience, I am happy because it will cater to all kinds of audiences.”

Bob Biswas is going to be streamed on ZEE5.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has stated strictly that there will be  ‘no sponsorship deals with Crypto Currency & betting companies via surrogate measure will be allowed in IPL 2022’. As per reports, an official BCCI said that the Indian Government will move a bill to properly frame rules from cryptocurrencies that stops private digital coin exchanges.

A BCCI official stated: “Yes, we have told the teams & IPL stakeholders that no deals should be weaved in with Cryptocurrency companies. We are also concerned about some of the betting companies advertising via surrogate methods as news platforms or other measures. We will not allow the same in future”

The IPL franchises have received huge interest from crypto exchanges. they planned to be a title or associate sponsors of the teams in the next season of IPL 2022. The Indian cricket board said that till there’s a regulation in the crypto sector, there will be no commercial deal in IPL.

BCCI has sent a notice to the team owners and media rights holders like Star Sports and Disney to prohibit every sponsorship deals with cryptocurrency exchanges.

There’s no doubt it will be a major business loss for the team owners. They were being offered 1.5 times the main sponsorship. The brand wanted to make their public image with IPL and they were ready to pay that amount for it.

Popular brands like Coin DCX, Coin Switch Kuber, WazirX and others have become active in advertising during cricket matches like the T20 World Cup and the concluded tour of India and Sri Lanka. Now, as per the new directive, all these advertisements will not be shown further.

BCCI has strictly asked Star Sports group and Disney Star network not to show advertisements of cryptocurrencies and Betting companies.

SC East Bengal vs ATK Mohun Bagan: 380th Kolkata derby preview

ATK Mohun Bagan take on SC East Bengal in the first Kolkata derby of the new ISL season. The Mariners are lining up their second win to go atop the table, while their rivals are looking for their first win in the season. 

The derby is the most famous fixture in Indian football, with the two clubs having a rich history on their own, and between themselves as well. 

East Bengal only joined the ISL last season, and we have seen two derbies in the Indian top flight so far. ATK Mohun Bagan won both those encounters by a two goal margin. 

SC East Bengal vs ATK Mohun Bagan: 380th Kolkata derby preview

But, out of the 379 Kolkata derbies that have been played so far, SC East Bengal have the better record. They have won 132 derbies while ATK Mohun Bagan have won 122 times. The remaining 125 meetings have ended in a draw. 

The key players to watch on the two teams are Roy Krishna and Antonio Perosevic. Both these attackers are capable enough to turn around games on their own, and they will be needee by their teams in the derby. 

But beyond the pitch, the Kolkata derby has a rich cultural heritage as well. ATK Mohun Bagan represents the ‘Ghotis’, the people who originally resided in Bengal before the partition. Similarly, the Red and Gold club represents the ‘Bangals’ or the people that were driven out by the partition into West Bengal. 

The fans are a huge part of the derby, with violent encounters between the two sets of supporters being very common. As a result, the eerie silence of the stadium in Goa will not do justice to the true atmosphere of a Kolkata derby. However, the fans will be passionately cheering on from in front of their TV screens without a doubt.

Is the 88-rated David Neres Squad Foundations SBC worth doing?

The David Neres Squad Foundations SBC requires two squads of 85 and 86 rated which is a bit expensive considering the recent market trend. It will cost you upward of 200k FIFA coins but the card is great in game. Let’s take a look at its stats in detail.

One of the things that stand apart for this David Neres Squad Foundations SBC card is its 5* skill move. The weak foot is a bit on the lower side 3* but the 5* skill move makes up for it. It also has a medium attacking and defensive work rate.

The pace and dribbling of the David Neres Squad Foundations SBC card are excellent. The 97 agility, 93 balance, 92 ball control and dribbling along with 5* skill move is one of the best combinations you’ll get in game. He just feels awesome on the ball.

The vision is also great along with passing and when paired with its 92 pace, it becomes an excellent card in game.

Although the card is not from the top 5 leagues, its Brazilian nationality will be enough to link it up with some of the best cards in FUT 22. As of now, I have linked with my icon Shevchenko and on 7 chem he is still great in game.

If you have enough fodder or FIFA coins, then the David Neres Squad Foundations SBC is a must do.

ISL: Top 5 football players to watch out for in the Kolkata Derby

For the second season in the Indian Super League, SC East Bengal will face ATK Mohun Bagan in the Kolkata Derby in search of their first win of the season. With a 1-1 draw against Jamshedpur FC, the Red and Golds have enjoyed a good start to the new season.

Manuel Diaz’s men, on the other hand, will be keen to win their first match against their arch-rivals because it would be a statement for their fans, and they will also acquire bragging rights in addition to three points.

However, the Red and Gold Army will face a difficult task in getting past last season’s finalists, ATK Mohun Bagan. The Mariners won 4-2 against Kerala Blasters to kick off their new season. As a result, it would be fascinating to see how both Kolkata-based teams do in the intense Kolkata Derby.

Both clubs will rely on a certain group of players to assist them to win this thrilling match. So, let’s have a look at the players that have the potential to make a big difference in the Kolkata Derby.

Franjo Prce: SC East Bengal

Since joining SC East Bengal, the Croatian defender has made an immediate impression. In the Red and Gold Army’s season opener against Jamshedpur FC, he scored the game’s only goal. SC East Bengal took a well-deserved lead thanks to a fantastic acrobatic kick from the former Lazio junior team star.

However, they were unable to maintain their lead for long, as Jamshedpur equalized before the halftime break. However, Prce and the other defenders were up to the task, as they prevented the Men of Steel from scoring again. They were able to salvage a point from the match, and Prce’s effort was much praised. In the huge Derby, the Croatian defender will face Roy Krishna, and it will be intriguing to see if he can hold his own against the prolific Fijian striker.

Manvir Singh: ATK Mohun Bagan

Since last season, the Indian forward has been a constant for the Mariners. Manvir has been a revelation under Antonio Lopez Habas, and he’ll be looking to build on that success this season. Last season’s opening derby saw the Punjabi striker scored in his club’s 2-0 triumph over SC East Bengal.

Last season, he scored six goals and added three assists for the Mariners, and he formed a strong bond with Roy Krishna and David Williams. This season, he’ll try to attack the Red and Golds from the right side once more.

Antonio Perosevic: SC East Bengal

In SC East Bengal’s 1-1 draw with Jamshedpur FC, this was probably the finest start. Perosevic’s ball development and take-on were outstanding. The seasoned forward, who has played for Croatia, brushed off opponents and slipped past them with ease. The only thing he was missing was his shooting boots. This is what the fans will expect him to accomplish in the forthcoming derby.

Perosevic is noted for his dribbling and ability to play in a variety of offensive positions. In addition, the 29-year-old can bring in other forwards in the game, something he will try to develop against the Mariners. Perosevic has played in top-tier leagues in Croatia, Hungary, and the United Arab Emirates, and he is capable of holding his own in a high-octane derby.

Roy Krishna: ATK Mohun Bagan

Roy Krishna, one of the most prolific strikers in Indian football history, continues to improve with each passing day. The Fijian captain is quick on his feet, strong, and has a wide range of abilities. Last season, he scored 14 goals and had 10 assists for the ATKMB, and he worked well with Manvir Singh and David Williams in the attack.

The 34-year-old was instrumental in both of ATK Mohun Bagan’s derby victories. In their 3-1 win over the Red and Golds, he scored twice and added two assists in the second match. Krishna will attempt to take center stage for the Mariners in yet another derby.

Hugo Boumous: ATK Mohun Bagan

Hugo Boumous, the Mariners’ newest star this season, will undoubtedly play a key part in the Kolkata Derby. He has everything planned to wreak havoc on the SC East Bengal defense. In the Indian Super League, he made an immediate impression by scoring a brace in their 4-2 victory.

In attack, the French offensive midfielder worked effectively with Krishna and can glide past defenders with ease. Under Sergio Lobera, Boumous led FC Goa to the League Winners’ Shield before leading Mumbai City FC to the ISL double last season. Boumous will attempt to do the same for the Mariners this season, as he looks to make an impression in the big game.

IPL 2022: DC to retain Axar Patel, Prithvi Shaw but releases Shikhar Dhawan

IPL 2022’s last date to finalize the retained players is knocking the door. As per reports, Delhi Capitals (DC) has made their retained players list. Shikhar Dhawan who scored the highest for the team won’t be retained. Players like Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw, Axar Patel and Anrich Nortje are going to be kept by the team.

The Source informed “Rishabh Pant will lead Delhi Capitals in the coming season. Team has decided to let go Shreyas Iyer, Ashwin, Shikhar Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada & have decided to retain Prithvi Shaw & Axar Patel”

Shikhar Dhawan has been one of the highest run scorers in the history of IPL. For Delhi Capitals (DC), he has played extremely well both in IPL 2020 and IPL 2022.

What made the management not retain Shikhar Dhawan in IPL 2022?

In IPL 2020, he made 618 runs at an average of 44.14 and strike rate of 144.73

In IPL 2021, he made 587 runs at an average of 39.13 and strike rate of 124.62

What made the team management not retain him?

well it’s his increasing age and falling strike rate that made him lose the position.

A team management official in his statement told “Shikhar is now almost 36. Players are getting retained for the next 3 seasons & the franchise wanted to retain those players who can serve the team for the next 3 years. Moreover Dhawan’s strike-rate also has been area of concern. Last year he scored, but he wasn’t that fluent. This is the reason DC decided to invest on the younger players”

The franchise believes that the four retained players are young and will be a good investment for the team. Four of them can continue playing for a tenure of 3 years.

The Delhi management has also not kept their most successful spinners like R.Ashwin and Amit Mishra. Shreyas Iyer who captained the team, won’t remain the skipper for the next season.

Top 5 unknown candidates for the Golden Boy Award 2022

0

Pedri was given the Golden Boy Award this week, taking over from Erling Haaland. The Barcelona midfielder has been the standout young player this year. Now, let’s take a look at the dark horse candidates for next year. 

Levi Colwill 

The 18-year-old is on loan at Huddersfield Town, and is from the Chelsea academy. He is in his first loan spell away from the London club, and is showing signs of greatness already. The centre-back could be a good prospect for the first team in the years to come. 

Gianluca Busio 

The all-round midfielder was signed this summer from Sporting Kansas City. He was born in America, but has now come to Italy, whom he is also eligible to represent. The 19-year-old features for Venezia and could be a standout talent in the upcoming year. 

Cole Palmer 

Cole Palmer has made his way into the first team after being a part of the Manchester City academy. The 19-year-old winger has an eye for goal, and can back it up with great technique on the ball. Alongside Phil Foden, he is set to be the future of Manchester City’s attack. Moreover, a Golden Boy Award could also be in the near future.

Mohamed Ali Cho 

The 17-year-old is making a name for himself in Ligue 1. He has two goals to his name in 14 appearances, but has explosive speed and dazzling technique in his repertoire, which has made him one of the key attacking players already. 

Julian Alvarez 

With Real Madrid, Juventus, AC Milan and Bayer Leverkusen trying to sign the player, Alvarez has already made a name for himself. The Argentinian forward has all the credentials to be a star and could very well be on the way to do so in the year ahead. His chances of being named the Golden Boy are the highest amongst all the other candidates.

It is the title of the first episode of Money Heist Part 5 Volume 2 i.e. episode number 6. It has been seen that Rio was holding a bazooka and has anger in his eyes and is probably armed up in order to invade the army who has killed his lady-love Tokyo.

2. Wishful Thinking- 7th Episode

3. The Theory Of Elegance- 8th Episode

It is the 8th episode, it also seems to show us some happy moments in between the gang members in their time of distress. They all are seen singing and dancing but we can obviously guess that it is going to have a bloody finale.

It is the 9th episode and it shows us The Professor in his signature night suit. The still along with the title that has been attached was again looks like it is from the flashback. Although, what the title going to show us is still not clear.

5. Family Tradition- 10th Episode

It is episode number 10. The picture that is attached with the title shows us that Colonel Tamayo is interrogating Denver and the background seems to be inside the Bank of Spain. It seems to be very confusing but excited. Till now, we have not seen the two coming face-to-face. But it is quite obvious that the ending will turn the tables and will give us some major twists.

After watching the still, a question has arisen that will Denver become a pawn in the hands of the police or will Tamayo give in to the robbers? The answer to this question will be given on 3rd December 2021 as soon as the Money Heist Part 5 Volume 2 releases on Netflix.

Money Heist 1

It has also been seen in the trailer that The Professor himself is also set to enter the bank to take things under control again. whether there is Plan B or there is something more to meet the eyes.

So, in order to get all the answers to the question, we have to wait for the Money Heist Part 5 Volume 2 to get its release.

Top 4 shirts that have made the most profits for their football clubs

0

The top football clubs sign some of the best football players for a huge sum. It may be surprising to see them spend so much money on a player. But apart from the signing fee and the wages, the clubs almost make more profits from that player’s shirt sales and endorsements. Clubs get commissions from their brand partner depending on the number of shirt sales.

This also comes with the huge advantage the player brings on the football pitch. If he helps the club to win trophies, the club’s image grows and more money is made. So signing a player for a huge transfer fee is part of a bigger plan.

So here we will be taking a look at the top 10 shirts which have made the most profits for their clubs.

Top 4 shirts that have made the most profits for their football clubs

4. Neymar | PSG

When Neymar moved to Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 for $264m, it sent shock waves through the football community. This was the biggest transfer in football history by quite some time.

Neymar’s No 10 shirt at PSG was sold within minutes. They sold around 10,000 shirts in the first 24 hours and 1,20,000 shirts in the first month.

3. Lionel Messi | PSG

Imaging Lionel Messi in a shirt other than Barcelona was almost unimaginable but the impossible thing happened as Messi joined PSG in 2021 when Barcelona couldn’t renew his contract due to financial problems.

When one of the world’s best footballers signs for a club, it is destined to create massive hype. Messi’s No 10 shirt was sold at a 50% higher rate than Neymar, but despite the fact it sold 1,50,000 in just 7 minutes from their website. PSG later claimed that this was their best shirt selling start in history.

2. Cristiano Ronaldo | Juventus

After 9 successful years at Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo left the Spanish club and joined Juventus in 2018. He was signed to win the Champions League for the Italian club, however, that story remains incomplete.

Juventus sold 5,20,00 Cristiano Ronaldo’s No 7 shirt within the first 24 hours which amounts to around $60m.

1. Cristiano Ronaldo | Manchester United

Cristiano Ronaldo made a fairytale return to his boyhood club Manchester United, where he truly turned into one of the world’s best. Ronaldo returned to Manchester in 2021 and the comeback story has been a massive hit.

It is reported that around $44.5m amount was made in the first 24 hours only from Cristiano Ronaldo’s No 7 shirt at Manchester United. It is the best selling shirt in Premier League history.

Here’s the list of the most in demand technology products of 2021 ahead of Black Friday and Cyber Monday

0

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday approaching, many are keen to get their hands on the best bargains especially when it comes to technology. However, due to manufacturing issues caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, crucial elements such as silicon chips which every major tech product has, are in shortage. Therefore, Black Friday this year could potentially not live up to expectations, disappointing tech consumers.

The experts at Upliftlegalfunding.com were keen to investigate the most in demand technology products of 2021. This consisted of scraping Google Trends and Stock Informer to find the gadgets with the most notable shortages.  Along with the results, Upliftlegalfunding.com have provided a series of expert tips on how to purchase the real deal and avoid scammers this Black Friday.

PlayStation 5:

The PS5 is one of the most in demand tech products, hitting peak popularity when it was released in November 2020, and once again peaking this month. Selling for an average of $1,099, your best bet at purchasing the PS5 is on QVC, Stock X or eBay. With Sony cutting their productions until March 2022, it’s unlikely that the PS5 will be fully available for another 4 months. 

However, Walmart is yet to disclose information regarding recent viral news associated with  ‘PS5 hoarding’, which has in turn caused a +2,200% increase in searches over the last 30 days for “PS5 Black Friday”, which could potentially mean Walmart are waiting until Black Friday to release their PS5 stock.

Nvidia GeForce RTX:

The Nvidia GeForce RTX’s high end visual computing platform has unlocked the ability to game and stream at the same time, which is currently in demand. The RTX 3080 currently retails for an average of $699, whereas the RTX 3090 retails for $1,499. Its demand peaked in December 2020, then peaking again in October with a +96% increase for the GeForce RTX 3080, and currently, the only stock available is on Stock X or eBay. 

Nintendo Switch OLED:

The Nintendo Switch OLED has been a mission for gamers to secure. Ranging in price from $349.99 in Walmart to $479.99 on eBay, at present,  the only retails with stock are Stock X and eBay. Its demand peaked in July 2021, with a notable +550% increase in searches in October 2021.  There could potentially be a restock of Nintendo Switch OLED in time for Black Friday, so make sure you keep a close eye on retailers such as Walmart and Target.

Nintendo Switch Lite:

This games console is currently selling for $249.95 on Amazon and is also available to purchase on eBay. An alternative would be to purchase a Nintendo Switch Lite bundle, which would include games. This would not only save you money but would also increase your chances of getting your hands on the console. As we near Black Friday, Google Trends has highlighted a  breakout of over +5000% search increase over the last 7 days for phrases consisting of “Nintendo Switch Lite Black Friday 2021”.

Xbox Series X:

The Xbox Series X is another highly in demand console, selling for between $600- $900 online. There is however limited stock on Stock X and eBay, potentially lasting for a couple of months.  Nevertheless, gamers have their hopes high for the release of more stock for Black Friday, as the Xbox Series X has had a +5000% breakout for black Friday deals.

AMD Ryzen 5000:

The AMD Ryzen 5000 is the highest-rated current generation gaming processor averaged across major e-tailer sites worldwide. Currently selling for $799, the only stock available is on B&H Photo, Stock X and eBay. With a +100% increase in September for AMD Ryzen 5000 searches, it may be in gamers’ interest to purchase this processor during the Black Friday sales.

AMD Radeon RX 6800:

The AMD Radeon RX 6800 is another popular gaming processor retailing for an average of $579, however with limited stock available on Stock X and eBay. Due to Black Friday, this gaming processor has seen a search increase of +56% in Google in November 2021. 

5 crucial tips to avoid scammers this Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

  1. Make sure the site is secure- If you’re desperate to buy a console such as the PS5, it can be tempting to head over to a reseller site. However, we recommend staying clear of these sites and instead sticking with trusted retailers. This means that if there is something wrong with your product, you are more likely to get your money back, as you’ll be protected by the brand and insurance where applicable. 
  2. Use reliable websites to point you in the right direction such as Stock Informer and Stock-checker. Use these sites to also check and compare sites offering the best deal. 
  3. Ensure you are aware of the original price– if prices are considerably lower than expected, ensure you double think the purchase as it could potentially be a scam.
  4. When purchasing online, if the site only accepts PayPay then this could potentially be a scam. You should be able to pay with any payment method including debit, credit and payment methods such as PayPal. 
  5. Avoid shopping using public WiFi, as fraudsters can download hacking software to watch how you are using the WiFi network and manipulate your data.

Mumbai City FC 3-0 FC Goa: Angulo scored double as champions start season with win

0

The defending champions of the ISL, Mumbai City FC, began their 21/22 campaign with a 3-0 win over rivals FC Goa. Igor Angulo scored twice against his former team in the game alongside Ygor Catatau. 

Vignesh Dakshinamurthy had to be taken off 17 minutes into the game due to an injury. Leander D’Cunha was let off for the foul that caused the wing-back to be taken off. 

Ivan Gonzalez’s mistimed tackle caused the Islanders to be awarded a penalty shortly after the cooling break. Angulo made no mistake from the spot as he opened his scoring account for the ongoing season. Shortly after, the Spaniard doubled up with a shot from the outside of his left foot ending up in the back of the net, beating former teammate Dheeraj Singh. 

Raynier Fernandes, the provider of the second goal, could have had a third for the team before half time but his shot ricocheted off the bar. 

After poor marking by Goa, Ygor Catatau scored his first goal for Mumbai City FC on his debut. The player headed in a free-kick after being unmarked for his run near the end of the box. 

Mumbai City FC have begun their campaign with a three-goal margin and are now at the top of the table. They take on Hyderabad FC in their next match in the ISL. FC Goa, on the other hand, take on Jamshedpur FC with both teams looking for their first win in the league. 

Most expensive signings of the Premier League big six clubs

0

The big six of the Premier League are the most financially strong in England (bar Newcastle United). And over the years, they have spent a lot of money on players. In this article, we will talk about the most expensive signings made by the Premier League big six. 

Tottenham Hotspur – Tanguy Ndombele – €60m

Despite being one of the big six in the Premier League, Tottenham are not known for spending a lot of money on transfers. Their most expensive signing is Tanguy Ndombele, who was recruited in 2019. So far, he has failed to live up to the hype and still needs to win over the fans. 

Arsenal – Nicolas Pepe – €80m

Nicolas Pepe was signed from Lille two years ago, and he has failed to make a strong impact so far. The winger has only scored 25 times in 98 appearances for the Gunners and being young, still has time to step up and improve his game. 

Liverpool – Virgil van Dijk – €84.65m

Liverpool are known for having one of the best recruitment policies in the league. And the €84 million spent on Virgil Van Dijk might just be their best investment ever. The Dutch centre-back is among the best in the world and has helped the team win the Champions League, and Premier League. 

Manchester United – Paul Pogba – €105m

Pogba joined Manchester United from Juventus and has been one of the most inconsistent players in the league. At times, the Frenchman is among the best in the world, and other times, that very thought seems highly questionable. He has six months on his contract left and could walk out for free in the summer. 

Chelsea – Romelu Lukaku – €115m 

Romelu Lukaku returned to Chelsea from Inter this summer, and the Blues broke their transfer record for Kai Havertz after only a year. The Belgian is currently out injured and will add a new dimension to the attack when he returns. 

Manchester City – Jack Grealish – €117.5m

Manchester City paid Grealish’s £100 million release clause to sign him from Aston Villa this summer. He is the most expensive English player in football, and it will be very interesting to see how his time under Pep Guardiola pans out. 

Here’s the list of the captain of all the ISL teams in the 2021-22 season

The Indian Super League 2021-22 season has already started. ATK Mohun Bagan, Bengaluru FC and Mumbai City FC won their respective matches against Kerala Blasters FC, North East United and FC Goa, whereas SC East Bengal drew with Jamshedpur FC.

Barcelona’s Pedri wins 2021 Golden Boy Award

0

Barcelona youngster Pedri has been given the 2021 Golden Boy award for his outstanding performance this past season. The midfielder made 53 appearances for Barcelona across all competitions, which is the most of any player in the squad. 

He was chosen in Luis Enrique’s Spain squad for Euro 2020, and played all but one minute of their campaign. He finished without a goal or assist in all appearances, but was very influential throughout. As a result, he was named the ‘Young Player of the Tournament’. 

With Barcelona, he managed to help them win the Copa del Rey and qualify for the Champions League this season. After the Euros, he was chosen in the Spanish Olympics team for Tokyo 2020 and helped them win the silver medal. 

“I thank Tuttosport for this trophy which makes me proud. Thanks also to all the members of the jury and the fans who have always supported me in this simply incredible 2021 for me,” Pedri said after being named the Golden Boy. 

“And of course, many thanks to Barça, the national team, my family, my friends and obviously to all those who have been close to me day after day without whom I would not have been able to win the Golden Boy.”

He becomes only the second Barcelona player to win the award after Lionel Messi. The youngster won with 318 votes, and the only other player close to him was Jude Bellingham with 119 votes. Never before has such a big gap been observed in the Golden Boy awards. 

The transfer arrangement between Miralem Pjanic and Arthur Melo was supposedly “illegal,” according to investigative journalist Romain Molina

0

The exaggerated transfer prices are being invested, according to Molina, with “capital gains” cited as the basis for the higher charges. On the surface, the €12 million difference between the two deals was the only money exchanged between the two parties for the transfer.

This isn’t the first time the exchange agreement has been scrutinized, with the Italian Football Federation’s Prosecutor’s Office looking into it previously.

About the Deal

In June 2020, Arthur transferred to Juventus for €72 million-plus a further €10 million in variables, while Pjanic moved to Barcelona for €60 million-plus a maximum of €5 million in additional expenditures.

The transaction was one of several that an Italian government authority in charge of stock exchange regulation looked at as part of an inquiry into capital gains on the transfer market.

Meanwhile, the latter was on its way to Barcelona for €60 million plus up to €5 million in extra charges. These exaggerated transfer values are being looked into, with “capital gains” being cited as one of the causes for the higher expenses.

The profit earned on the sale of an asset is referred to as “capital gains,” and it relates to the difference between the asset’s higher selling price and lower cost price. On the surface, the only money that changed hands was the difference of €12 million between the two deals.

On the Other Hand

However, this is not the case because a player’s transfer fee is spread out throughout their new contract for accounting considerations. Meanwhile, immediate income refers to the fee received when a player is sold.

According to Forbes, if a team spends $80 million on a player and then signs him to a four-year contract, the outgoing money becomes an $80 million asset on the books. That worth then drops by $20 million per season, resulting in a $30 million profit if they sell that player for $50 million after three years.

Sensational claims made by Molina on Twitter Space include:

  • In Asia, certain international games are rigged. As a result, several players have abandoned their national teams.
  • Burn-out after burn-out has been a problem for Paris Saint-Germain. In the last year alone, almost 100 personnel have left the club. Leonardo is despised for his actions and demeanor.
  • All of Arsenal’s players breathe nitrous oxide. A player returned to Paris to celebrate his birthday with the theme “nitrous oxide balloons.”
  • The tremendous media outcry over the World Cup in Qatar is political, and it is being funded by people and organizations who want to destroy the country.
  • PSG despises Leonardo. At the time, Icardi’s signing was not favorably accepted by the coach.

Even though the worth of Pjanic and Arthur differed by only €12 million ($13.54 million), the agreement with Barcelona netted Juventus €41.8 million ($47.26 million) in capital gains. At this time, no punishments have been issued, but it will be interesting to see how this inquiry progresses in the following weeks.

0

The Emirates Cricket Board is all set to reveal the “MINI_IPL” of UAE. Most of the teams ready to unveil ‘MINI-IPL’ of sort in UAE. The teams of Emirates T20 League are bought by promoters who have direct connection with the IPL franchises. The Times Of India (TOI) reported that Mumbai Indians (MI), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Delhi Capital (DC) have bought teams in 6 team franchise league. They will be ready to launch in January 2022.

Mini IPL in UAE?

Multiple time IPL winner Mumbai Insians, Sharukh Khan’s Kolkata Knight Riders franchise, Kiran Kumar Gandi’s Delhi Capitals have bought teams in this league.

The organisers desired Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to to buy a team but CSK decided to stay out of the league.

Some other owners even have direct connection with IPL.

  • Kiran Kumar Gandhi – 50% ownership of Delhi Capitals
  • Capri Global – Recently they placed an unsuccesful bid for IPL TEAM

Till date BCCI hasn’t allowed any of the Indian players to play T20 leagues internationally. With Emirates League it can change as well.

BCCI has a rapport with ECB. In fact ECB has hosted two seasons of IPL in UAE. (2021 and 2022).

Top 5 takeaways from the new Spider-Man No Way Home trailer

0

Spider-Man No Way Home has released the second trailer and it has disappointed the fans those who are expecting the confirmation of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s presence (or Kirsten Dunst and Emma Stone’s, for that matter). But it seems that Sony wants to hold on to the surprise, but at least this is what the fans are hoping for. Despite the fact that what the trailer did not have, it seems the film is going to be a thrilling, action-packed adventure through the multiverse.

Without any surprise, the trailer which is of only 3-minutes has given us a lot to think and theorize about it. So, from there here we present the five gist which we have concluded after seeing the trailer and that one should need to get discussed:-

Here we present the new trailer:-

1. Two of the supervillains in No Way Home did not die ‘fighting Spider-Man’

In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Peter Parker wants Doctor Strange to perform a ritual due to which everyone in the world forgets that he is Spider-Man as his secret identity was revealed by Mysterio from beyond the grave in the previous film named Spider-Man: Far From Home. Although when he remembered that everyone in the world also includes Aunty May and MJ so, he tried to stop Doctor Strange. The ritual has gone wrong and the multiverse rips open. In the MCU, this is how the bad guy from earlier live-action film series–’visitors’, in Strange’s words–arrive. After that Peter Parker and Doctor Stranger have teamed up in order to send them back to their own universe and obviously the villain will not allow them to do that, as in their own home universe they have died while fighting with Spider-Man. Otto Octavius has said, “You’re flying out into the darkness to fight ghosts.”

But is it true? Sandman and Lizard did not die, at least until we last saw them. But they have died in their respective film after the events that have been shown. Or maybe both of them can be introduced in this film after Doctor Strange has made the statement about fate.

2. Doctor Octopus will team up with Spidey

Doctor Octopus is one of the most reasonable supervillains in the movie. He has regret for his actions after being defeated by Tobey Maguire’s wall-crawler and has sacrificed himself in Spider-Man 2. He was a decent person before the incident about his wife’s death. The Doctor Octopus and Spidey seems to be teamed up after being defeated and captured In No Way Home, after taking on Tom Holland’s version of Spidey.

In the new trailer, in one shot we have seen him to fall down from a building after being hit by a lightning bolt from Electro it seems that it might be just a clever editing in order to make the audience think in between the lines. In one of the final shots, Electro, Sandman and Lizard are seen fighting the superhero, but Doc Ock is missing.

Doctor octopus

3. Harry Osborn? Hobgoblin? Or simply Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin?

In the trailer, from one of the interesting scenes, it has been seen that somebody was on a goblin glider. Earlier some rumours have been heard, so is it, Ned Leeds, as Hobgoblin? Or is that Harry Osborn (with James Franco returning), or simply Willem Dafoe in a new costume? If anyone watches closely then the face seems like Dafoe’s face and it also seems that he might get a suit upgrade through the course of the movie. But where did he get the new technology? Stark Industries?

Hobgoblin 2

4. Are Tobey and Andrew’s Spider-Men in the trailer, and were they just edited out?

As we have mentioned above that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield does not appear in the trailer, due to which the fans have felt very disappointed. But it seems that Sony wanted to keep it as a surprise for the movie itself. It is being believed by many others that they are actually in some shots shown in the trailer, but it was edited out to keep their presence a secret. In a shot, it has been seen that Lizard seems to be punched by an invisible foe-his head is violently yanked to one side, as if reeling from the impact. But one thing is confirmed that if the two Spider-Man has not been ended up in the movie, Sony has to definitely face the wrath of fans.

Tomey and Andrew

5. The magical box that Peter steals from Doctor Strange

In the first trailer, we have seen a magical box in No Way Home. It is very much important for Doctor Stranger to evict astral from Peter Parker’s body when the latter tries to steal it. But we do not know what does the box do? It definitely must have something to do with the multiverse and maybe it allows the wielder to travel between worlds and manipulate time. Peter steals it when he learns that the supervillains are dead men walking and Strange still wants them to go back to their respective universes.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is going to release in theatres on 17th December 2021.

Top 10 highest goalscorers in a calendar year for European countries

0

Playing for the national team is one of the greatest honours that a footballer can have. The international breaks of 2021 are now over, and Memphis Depay signs off as the highest goalscorer of the year with 17 goals from 16 games. Here is where he ranks amongst the highest goal tallies in a single year for European countries. 

10. Michel Platini (France, 1984) – 13 goals in 10 games 

The attacking midfielder was one of the best to play for France and went on to score 41 goals in 72 appearances for the national team. A remarkable return for a midfielder playing for country. 

9. Romelu Lukaku (Belgium, 2018) – 14 goals in 14 games

Lukaku is Belgium’s all-time highest goalscorer, and was unstoppable in 2018, finishing with a goal per game on average. He is no doubt the best striker produced by the country. 

8. Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal, 2019) – 14 goals in 10 games

Ronaldo is international football’s highest goalscorer, recently surpassing Ali Daei’s record. Two years ago the striker managed to net 14 times for the country in only ten appearances. 

7. Ole Madsen (Denmark, 1962) – 14 goals in 9 games

Madsen is still remembered for scoring a heel kick goal against Sweden in 1965. The striker scored 40 goals in 52 appearances for the Danish national team. 

6. Harry Kane (England, 2021) – 16 goals in 16 games

Kane is only one goal behind Sir Bobby Charlton and five behind Wayne Rooney in England’s all-time highest scorers. While he has no more games left for the country in 2021, we will see him surpass Rooney as England’s highest ever goalscorer in 2022. 

5. Sandor Kocsis (Hungary, 1952) – 16 goals in 12 games

Kocsis’ first appearance on the list comes after his tally in 1952. The striker also finished as the top scorer in the Hungarian league playing for Honved. In the same year, he won the Olympics with Hungary. 

4. Imre Schlosser (Hungary, 1912) – 16 goals in 10 games

Imre Schlosser is still the highest ever goalscorer for Hungary. His tally of scoring sixteen goals in one year for the national team still stands after over 100 years. Schlosser played as a striker and was equally successful in his club career. 

3. Memphis Depay (Holland, 2021) – 17 goals in 16 games

Depay recently helped the Netherlands automatically qualify for the 2022 World Cup, and finished the year with an outstanding goalscoring return. However, he has been topped by two other players, close to 50 years ago. 

2. Just Fontaine (France, 1958) – 18 goals in 12 games

13 of Fontaine’s 18 goals were scored in six games in the World Cup. He remains the competition’s highest goalscorer in one edition. He has also been named as one of the greatest living footballers by the iconic Pele. 

1. Sandor Kocsis (Hungary, 1954) – 23 goals in 14 games 

Kocsis’ second appearance in the list is a tally that might never be matched. The striker scored 23 goals in 14 games in 1954. 11 of those came in the World Cup, much like Just Fontaine four years later. 

Here is the list of football players who will benefit the most and least from Xavi’s arrival as Barcelona coach

0

Demir’s best chance of earning a second wind is with the arrival of Xavi. Much Puig’s fresh start works in his favor, allowing him to catch up to the competition. His versatility and ingenuity are sure to appeal to the boss, ensuring a slew of cameos and even starts for the teenager to establish his value.

Yusuf Demir will undoubtedly be grabbing at straws to earn a multi-year contract due to his lack of long-term commitment to the club. Xavi’s mid-season appointment is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. There is, after all, a ray of hope at the end of the tunnel.

Barcelona’s Rehabilitation

The restructuring in question is far more than tactical. Barcelona is currently undergoing a comprehensive, methodical refurbishment to aid its recovery. The arrival of the 41-year-old is sure to have a tactical and mental influence on the garnet and blue.

Ten winners and losers from Xavis appointment as Barcelona manager
credits – fcbarcelonats.com

The key priorities are unquestionably improving group performance and optimizing the team’s approach. Xavi will undoubtedly be up to the task, with new ideas and a more well-defined worldview than his predecessors. The Catalan’s competence is undeniable on all fronts, and he is firm in his opinions and captivating in his presentation.

A collective-oriented strategy, on the other hand, usually entails a boost in individual efficiency. As a result of the introduction of a new concept and system, some players are expected to come out of their shells.

Players who will be benefited the most

Ousmane Dembele

Ousmane Dembele’s contentious name has surely come to mind up to this point. Xavi has demonstrated a liking for players of his stature and has regularly expressed his respect for the 24-year-old. The arrival of Dembele, a former midfield leader, might be his saving grace.

For players with his price tag, the ability to accomplish complex tasks on the field is a must. Dembele, on the other hand, has shown that he is incapable of performing even the most basic of tasks. Is Xavi capable of nurturing his tactical, physical, and mental growth? The only way to find out is to wait and watch, but he has a good chance. It’s either do or die for the 24-year-old.

Frenkie de Jong

Finally, the chances of the flying Dutchman having a breakout season are favorable. Frenkie de Jong has had a rough time in Catalunya so far, with none of his coaching tutors able to tap into his almost boundless potential.

The capacity of the former Ajax man to live up to expectations has always been a point of dispute. However, Xavi’s arrival may be the spark for him to mature. Because of De Jong’s importance and high talent, bringing out the best in him is equivalent to improving team performance. The 24-year-old is a master of all trades, excelling in all aspects of the sport. Xavi should not construct a team around De Jong and hopefully will not do so. The team will develop around him if the ideal conditions are met.

Xavi is the only one who is capable of solving the problem. As a natural pacesetter, he understands how much weight Frenkie de Jong’s meticulous accommodation would carry. Everything suggests that now is the time for the number 21 to shine. A player of his ability is capable of quantum jumps, and Frenkie de Jong appears to be on the verge of fully extending his wings.

Riqui Puig

Riqui Puig’s peculiar condition has caused much consternation among the club’s supporters. Riqui Puig’s strange case has often created controversy among the club’s supporters. Formerly a castaway, now with a genuine opportunity at contending for a starting XI berth, Riqui Puig’s bizarre case has caused an uproar among the club’s followers.

The 22-year-old has been on the bench for the past two years, with Ronald Koeman giving no support. Everyone, on the other hand, will have to gain the manager’s faith from the start, putting him on par with his midfield opponents.

To be honest, Puig did not make life easy for himself this season. In comparison to de Jong and Pedri, he never provided enough balance, as though he was always in a rush to complete each motion.

That’s logical, considering the restricted amount of options: it’s only natural for the 22-year-old to attempt to squeeze every last second out of each minute. These strenuous attempts to persuade Ronald Koeman, on the other hand, only hurt his chances.

Here’s where Xavi’s appointment could come in handy. Previous performances will be immaterial, according to the 41-year-old. This implies that everyone will have the opportunity to begin at the same moment.

Memphis Depay

Memphis Depay is commonly considered to have been signed solely at Ronald Koeman’s insistence. While his recruitment was aided by the now-former Blaugrana coach, the 27-year-old also made a lot of strategic sense.

Depay possesses a one-of-a-kind skill set. He has flamboyant flare, but he balances it up with experience, great vision, and a devastating finish. In all offensive areas, he can play in the half-space, between the lines, or as a focal point. This means that the Dutchman should be the driving force behind his team’s decisions.

Memphis Depay was largely expected to excel at Barça; it is just the circumstances that have prevented him from doing so. If the correct management is in place, he will unavoidably progress in lockstep with the rest of the team. It’ll only be a matter of time before the lion roars.

Yusuf Demir

The young Austrian’s Barcelona career has gotten off to an unforgivably terrible start. As he sits at the bottom of the bench, Demir’s future is already in jeopardy. Lady Luck may have finally sided with the kid with the arrival of Xavi. At initially, Ronald Koeman exhibited genuine trust in the 18-year-old newcomer, and he deserved it. Yusuf Demir is a talented footballer who excels at his position.

The arrival of Xavi represents Demir’s best chance of gaining a second wind. Much to Puig’s advantage, his new start allows him to catch up to the competition. His adaptability and creativity are certain to impress the boss, resulting in a series of appearances and even starts for the adolescent to prove his worth.

Due to his lack of long-term commitment to the club, Yusuf Demir will be grasping at straws to secure a multi-year deal. The mid-season appointment of Xavi is a once-in-a-lifetime chance. After all, there is a glimmer of hope at the end of the tunnel.

Players who will be benefited the least

Philippe Coutinho

Coutinho’s Barcelona career has been awful, to put it mildly. The €135 million that went down the drain with his signing has wreaked havoc on the club, while the Brazilian has done little to justify even a quarter of that sum.

The widespread consensus is that the 29-year-old is living on borrowed time, regardless of who is in control. The signing of Coutinho was undeniably a strategic blunder. That does not, however, absolve the gamer of all responsibility. If his salary and price tag were the only factors preventing him from leaving, it’s hard to see Coutinho staying at the Camp Nou for much longer under Xavi.

The new manager appears to be planning to bring in even more players to the first squad. Many rookies will inevitably obstruct Coutinho’s position on the team. If his current form is to be believed, knocking him off his perch will not be difficult.

Luuk de Jong

Luuk de Jong and FC Barcelona aren’t exactly a match made in heaven. Signing a player with such a narrow profile, even on loan, was unimaginable in any case.

Ronald Koeman, on the other hand, found something interesting in his game, which is why he signed in the first place. Regrettably, the Dutch manager may be the only one who values his contribution to the team.

When the side was on the back foot, the Dutchman was usually employed as a last resort to avoid relying on his non-existent contribution on the ball. Even when it came to scoring goals, the Luuk loanee struggled under duress.

Everything, predictably, points to the 31-year-departure. old’s His time in Blaugrana colors was only supposed to be temporary in any case, but the potential of an immediate exit cannot be ruled out. The clock is ticking; Luuk de Jong’s days are running out.

Gerard Pique

Every year, the same debate takes place: when will Gerard Pique be replaced, and by whom? And every time, the 34-year-stay old’s at the club is extended. To his credit, the vice-captain has maintained a remarkable quality to keep his starting position. However, it appears that the time has come to turn the page.

Pique’s spot has already been pushed on a hair-trigger this season by the younger and more proactive Eric Garcia, and he isn’t the only one banging on his door. Barcelona has a plethora of young, talented center-backs who could be ready to step up when the time comes. Given the vice-injury captain’s problems, it appears only a matter of time until he is replaced.

In terms of Xavi, there is no doubt that he will be ready to replace Pique in the starting lineup if necessary. He understands the necessity of setting the groundwork for a brighter future. Whether the person affected likes it or not, making room for the next generation is a necessary part of the process.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen

It may seem far-fetched, but there is every reason to believe that the German’s worth to the squad will continue to dwindle. Meritocracy has long been a forgotten value at Barça since several players have had their roles established. This has impeded the team’s success by putting unneeded self-restrictions in place.

He’s no longer a consistent presence between the sticks, and the quantity of his gravity-defying displays has plummeted. Inaki Pena and Arnau Tenas, two of La Masia’s most talented goalkeepers in recent decades, have yet to make their senior debuts, and this is unlikely to happen anytime soon unless ter Stegen’s role is reconsidered.

Xavi’s evaluation will be based only on merit, which means there will be plenty of competition. For the Germans, it’s now or never.

Ronald Araujo

Xavi’s appointment, controversial as it may be, could be Ronald Araujo’s undoing — at least temporarily. That, however, is due to managerial preference rather than quality. Even if the fans dislike it, profile and suitability take precedence over quality.

Xavi has displayed a proclivity for proactivity, which is shared by all practitioners of positional play. This quality is only found in the repertory of a few players, but it is extremely valuable.

It’s what allows teams to avoid danger and predict strikes from their opponents. Because pressing limits build up alternatives and close down space, it is also fuelled by proactive thinking.

Surprisingly, the main strength of Ronald Araujo’s opponents appears to be proactivity. La Masia has historically bred aggressive defensive players, whereas the 22-year-old grew up in the polar opposite footballing environment. While he could yet grow in that area, the Uruguayan is also expected to spend some time in and out of the team.

Without a doubt, this is merely a theoretical appraisal. The coach has the authority to assess his players’ improvement and deservingness of a chance.

One thing is certain: upon his arrival, Xavi is going to mess up the pecking order for several reasons. Those on the verge of leaving may be able to come back, while others will surely lose value. An amazing internal role change is going underway.

Guanyu Zhou will become the FIRST Chinese driver in Formula One history when he replaces Antonio Giovinazzi in 2022

0

Guanyu Zhou, 22, will be China’s first Formula One driver after Alfa Romeo confirmed on Tuesday that he will join the team. This season, Zhou has made waves in Formula Two, and he will be paired with Valtteri Bottas, who will be going from Mercedes.

Zhou’s Promotion

Along with current Mercedes star Valtteri Bottas, who was confirmed earlier this year, the current Formula Two title challenger will replace Antonio Giovinazzi as part of an all-new driver line-up. For a long time, Zhou has been the favourite to land the post, aided by the commercial support he carries with him.

The 22-year-old said: ‘I dreamt from a young age of climbing as high as I can in a sport that I am passionate about and now the dream has come true.

‘To be the first-ever Chinese driver in Formula One is a breakthrough for Chinese motorsport history.’

Zhou will leave Alpine after being a part of their youth program since 2019 when the team was still known as Renault. He’s in his third season in Formula Two and is now second in the standings behind Oscar Piastri, who was named Alpine’s backup driver for next season on Tuesday.

His Debut with Alfa

After the season’s final race, the Chinese driver will make his on-track debut with Alfa at the Abu Dhabi young driver test in December.

Alfa Romeo team principal Fred Vasseur told Autosport: “We have a big change in terms of regulations for 2022. We evaluated all the options that we had on the table. Valtteri was quite obvious to me. And alongside Valtteri, we had different options, and for tons of different reasons, Zhou is the first choice.”

“It’s never one thing. Performance is not based on one single pillar, it’s always a combination of speed, collaboration with the team, collaboration with the teammate, the financial side. And for the development of the company, I think it’s a good step forward.”

The seasoned Bottas, who has won ten races during his five-year spell at Mercedes, will put Zhou to the test next season. After five years of working alongside Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes has decided to separate ways with Bottas for the upcoming season. George Russell, a Williams driver who came via the Mercedes young driver program, will take his place.

Antonio Giovinazzi will retire from Formula One at the end of the season, however, he may still have a reserve position due to his ties to Ferrari. Kimi Raikkonen, Giovinazzi’s teammate, and 2007 champion will likewise retire at the end of the season, 20 years after making his debut.

Top 5 things Rahul Dravid wants from the Indian cricket team

The Indian T20 team is all set to be in a new zone as Rahul Dravid became the new head coach and Rohit Sharma the new skipper. The new coach will be guiding the players and bringing about huge transformations. Hopefully, the Indian cricket team will have a good comeback from their 2021 T20 World Cup debacle. Dravid’s new tenure will begin from Wednesday as India is ready to face New Zealand In the 1st T20I in Jaipur. Rahul Dravid has included 5 points in a template to create a stronger team for the 2022 T20 World Cup.

Having fearless attitude

Indian cricket players have often played the T20 format like ODI cricket. Rahul Dravid wants to break that and assert confidence and belief in players. he wants them to take risks and play dynamic cricket.

“It’s important, especially in this format, that sometimes you just need to go out there and play fearlessly and while doing that, there are chances that you might not always be successful because it’s a short format and you’re always challenged. The pressure is always there. We certainly will keep an eye on that aspect, ” said Rohit Sharma.

Bio-bubble fatigue

Dravid has addressed bio-bubble fatigue as well. Players like Mohammad Shami, Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah have been given rest. On the other hand, a lot of Space has been given to Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli so that there remains no place for physical and mental fatigue.

Having specialists for key roles

Rahul Dravid is keen to tap all the potential of different players, giving opportunities to every player.

Rohit Sharma said  “Template is a very important one and we need to set it right. There are holes in every team but you try and maximise what you have. I’m not going to say that we’re going to follow a certain team’s template. We have to create our own template, see what’s best and right for the team. We strictly want to assign roles that we want them to do because at the end of the day what they do here matters.”

Playing a team game

Rahul Dravid has always been a team player during his cricket playing days, he expects the same from the current cricket team as well. He has imbibed such values in U-19 and A teams. There’s such expectation from the senior team as well.

Long term planning for the team and individual careers

Rahul Dravid believes that it is important to find the perfect balance between the age group outfits and senior group outfits. The players need to be given a longer run of games. he will correct the plan for the long term for the team and players careers.

The Indian coach said, “Thinking long term and thinking about what’s in the future certainly is my job as a coach, and that won’t change irrespective of whichever team you’re coaching. You know we will think about the players’ long term careers and futures as well and keep that in mind and not prioritise their well being at any stage over, for sort of short term results.”

0

Great footballing minds often transition from being players to managers. There are a number of cases where iconic players on the pitch have managed to become good managers in the dugout as well. Here are the top five instances of great footballers becoming managers as well: 

5. Andriy Shevchenko 

Shevchenko is remembered for his playing days as a legend at AC Milan. He won the 2003 Ballon d’Or, and managed the Ukrainian national team up until recently. He helped them progress into the quarter finals of the Euros for the first time in their history and now manages Serie A club Genoa

4. Carlo Ancelotti 

The Italian manager is a serial winner, having led AC Milan and Real Madrid to European success during his time at these clubs. What people don’t remember is that Ancelotti was also a renowned player. He is one of the seven managers to have won the European Cup or Champions League as a player and manager. 

3. Steven Gerrard 

Gerrard is one of Liverpool’s most beloved legends, and was a one club man throughout his career. He led Rangers to an invincible season as they won the title, and is now the manager of Aston Villa in the Premier League. 

2. Zinedine Zidane 

The Frenchman is still among the most skillful players to ever grace the game. He cemented his status as an elite manager by winning the Champions League with Real Madrid three times in a row, and also winning two La Liga titles with Los Blancos.

Guardiola might go down as the greatest manager of all time. The former Barcelona midfielder became a revolutionary figure in charge of his former club. He also achieved success at Bayern Munich, and has managed to transform Manchester City into a title winning machine as well. 

India will travel to Pakistan for the first time in 17 years after ICC declared that Pakistan will host the Champions Trophy in 2025

0

Pakistan will host the Champions Trophy 2025, the International Cricket Council’s showpiece tournament, for the first time in more than two decades.

The ICC board of directors gave Pakistan the Champions Trophy 2025 hosting rights on Tuesday, while the United States and the West Indies were named co-hosts of the 2024 T20 World Cup. This will be the first time North America has hosted a worldwide event.

The last time India visited Pakistan to compete in a competition was in 2008 for the Asia Cup. Many teams have also refused to play in Pakistan due to security concerns. Matches in Pakistan were transferred to Sri Lanka during the 2011 ICC World Cup, and the Pakistan Cricket Board was powerless to stop it.

It will, however, be an excellent opportunity for Babar Azam’s side to defend their ICC Champions Trophy title. They won the title at the Oval in London in 2017 after defeating India in the final. Pakistan will compete in the 2023 50-over World Cup, 2026 T20 World Cup, 2029 Champions Trophy, and 2031 50-over World Cup, all of which will be held in India.

India will also be the sole host of the 2029 Champions Trophy. Pakistan has not been able to stage many international games since the 2009 terrorist assault on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore when it co-hosted the 1996 World Cup with India and Sri Lanka.

The Champions Trophy was last hosted in the United Kingdom in 2017, and it will return to the ICC calendar after an eight-year absence. Following the cancellation of a visit of the country by New Zealand and England, it would be intriguing to observe if teams finally prepare to come to Pakistan.

For the first time, the United States and Namibia will host an ICC World Cup event when they host the ICC T20 World Cup in 2024.

The following is a schedule of ICC events from 2024 through 2031:

  • 2024 T20 World Cup- USA and West Indies.
  • 2025 Champions Trophy – Pakistan.
  • 2026 T20 World Cup – India and SL.
  • 2027 World Cup – South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Namibia.
  • 2028 T20 World Cup- Australia and NZ.
  • 2029 Champions Trophy – India
  • 2030 T20 World Cup- England, Ireland & Scotland.
  • 2031 World Cup – India and Bangladesh.

A Board sub-committee chaired by Martin Snedden, comprising Sourav Ganguly and Ricky Skerritt, picked the hosts through a competitive bidding process.

The ICC Board of Directors adopted the recommendations of the committee, which worked with ICC management to perform a thorough examination of each offer. Early next year, a similar method will be used to pick the hosts for the ICC Women’s and U19s competitions for the next cycle.

Ricky Skerritt, Cricket West Indies President, and ICC Board member said: “The success of this joint bid by CWI and USA Cricket will be a huge boost for our cricket. It offers a vital strategic opportunity to promote and develop cricket, and related commercial activity, in North America and the Caribbean.”

The ICC will now work closely with Members to finalize plans before awarding the tournaments to chosen hosts.

BREAKING: Derby County punished with 21 points deduction; now sits at the bottom of the Championship table with -3 points

0

The EFL Club entered into Administration in September 2021. As a result of that, Derby County was handed a 12-points deduction. However, they appealed against the decision but withdrew their appeal last week.

And now a new nine-point penalty has been applied immediately. That means a total of 21 points has been deducted from Derby County in this season’s 2021/22 Championship table.

Derby County now sit at the bottom of the Championship table with -3 points, 18 points from safety. A further three-point deduction will take effect if the club does not comply with the terms of the budget as set out in the ‘Agreed Decision’ for the remainder of season 2021/22.

Trevor Birch, EFL Chief Executive said: “The EFL’s objective throughout this ongoing process has been to ensure that the principles of the Regulations were upheld on behalf of all Clubs. In order to assess the sporting sanction that was applicable to apply to these breaches, previous P&S cases have been carefully reviewed and guidance taken from them. The EFL has also considered the P&S sanction guidelines as well as mitigation put forward by the Club.”

“Given the complex circumstances of the case and the various outstanding regulatory issues between the EFL and Derby County, the League is satisfied at the agreed outcome and the sensible approach taken by both parties in negotiating this outcome and in respect of the appeal withdrawal. Our focus is to continue to work with the Joint Administrators to assist them in securing a long-term future for the Club.”

Carl Jackson, Quantuma Joint Administrator, said: “This has been a difficult matter to navigate bearing in mind the various issues concerned. Whilst point deductions are never ideal for any Club, it was critical to the Club’s future that all matters were concluded between the EFL and the Club in relation to historical issues. This conclusion allows us to proceed with our restructuring strategy for the Club with prospective interested parties.”

It is the new addition in MCU, assuming it will be one of the most awesome on-screen crocodilians. It is expected that the crocodile may appear in this movie. As the Spider-Man: Into The Spideverse has introduced with Spider-Ham, who hails from a universe that has been comprised of the entire animal versions of Marvel Heroes and villains, if this creature comes from that universe like the pig wall-crawler, then the crocodilian definitely provide an easy way for introducing the live-action Spider-ham.

After that, the changing behaviour of Strange has been explained that is showing such possibilities of him to be Agatha Harkness.

In an interview, Holland said,” Everyone puts their trousers on in the same way in the morning”, He also said that “It was interesting having those guys come in because they have a certain ownership over Spider-Man in their own way, and…”. At this point, our Spidey-sense starts to tingle. He also said. “ I’m talking about Alfred and Jamie and those guys. To see Alfred come in and have to adapt and change the way the films are made, but also change the director, and I’m now Spider-Man. It was exciting to see those actors adapt and change what they were doing to fit the modern era”.

Ted Lasso: How Americans are finally falling in love with Soccer after watching this series?

Ted Lasso is a TV show that is singlehandedly making the Americans finally fall in love with Soccer after the 1994 FIFA World Cup and MLS failed miserably.

After hearing the series named Ted Lasso for the very first time, everyone thought that the actor and comedian named Jason Sudeikis is making a show about football. It has been seen in a video that he was jumping around with a team, and after seeing that everyone seemed to be very much excited to know about this alleged show.

When we realized that Ted Lasso was truly about soccer, we were literally knocked down after hearing that. It was a very courageous move for an American comedian who is an SNL alumnus, who is making a comedy about the English Premier League, especially if the main target is the American audience.

Ted Lasso 2

In the past or in the previous records we have seen that many people have made the attempt in order to make the USA fall in love with soccer but has not got any success.

In the year 1994, FIFA has decided to give a chance to organize the World Cup but this soccer fever did not even last for a decade. But the other sports such as American football, basketball, and baseball have already been embedded in the culture for many decades.

Actually, American has never cared about soccer like the way they do for other sports, but this time somehow “Ted Lasso” has raised their interest.

How did Ted Lasso and the actor Jason Sudeikis make this happen?

It is quite obvious and the answer is also known that it has become possible only because of its great storytelling. If we take it from the core, Ted Lasso is not really about soccer. This series is basically a story of a human about relationships that have crossed paths with each other in the most profound manner. This series presents both comedy and tragedy at the same time, with many other contrasts that keep viewers on the edge of their seats.

If anyone has thought that Ted Lasso was initially a premier League skit from a major American network then it is simply mindboggling. The show has recently swept the floor at the 2021 Grammy Awards and Season 2 has also arrived and is just as riveting as the first, if not more.

Everyone can watch both the seasons of Ted Lasso on Apple TV now and see why Americans have suddenly fallen in love with soccer so much.

Here we present the trailer:-

Dani Alves completes Barcelona medical; becomes the lowest-paid player in the squad

0

Dani Alves has completed his Barcelona medical and has officially returned to the club five years after leaving. He will join training with the team today itself. The contract agreement was reached on Friday, and the veteran has arrived at the club once again. 

He will be presented to the fans on Wednesday, and has become the lowest-paid player in the squad. His base salary is the lowest as part of the first team, and he will have the chance to increase it through bonuses. 

The 38-year-old has understood Barcelona’s financial difficulty and is doing everything in his power to help the club operate under these difficult circumstances. 

“I’ve worked so hard all my life and now I’m here to help Barcelona grow,” Dani Alves told Barca’s television channel.

“I tried so hard to come back for a long time and to be here again with the people that know how I am is a privilege,” Alves added. “I’ll try to rescue the Barca that we all love so much. There’s no margin for error. This is a great opportunity.

“More than 50% of my winning mentality was generated in my time here. I still have a house here and part of my family lives here. It was inevitable that I came back.”

The right-back enjoyed a very illustrious first spell at Camp Nou, and has been recruited to become a mentor to the younger players at the club. His presence in the locker room will surely help restore Barcelona to their former glory in some capacity.

Top 5 underrated free agents in football to look out for in June 2022

0

The winter transfer window is just over a month away. Players having six months or under in their contract will be able to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs to join as free agents. There are a number of top players that could depart as free agents. But, here are six underrated players that could also make the switch for nothing at the end of the season. 

5. Corentin Tolisso – Bayern Munich 

The French midfielder has not been fantastic for Bayern Munich for the last few years. He has not been able to break into the first team ahead of Kimmich and Goretzka either. So, he could move on for more regular first team opportunities soon. 

4. Noussair Mazraoui – Ajax 

The Ajax right-back has been making a name for himself recently, with great performances in the Eredivisie. He has four goals and two assists from 11 games in the Dutch league. And he will be available for free next summer if clubs want to recruit the player. 

3. Boubacar Kamara – Marseille 

Kamara is a defensive midfielder that has attracted the interested of several top clubs across Europe. The Marseille academy graduate can play as a centre-back as well, and could be a great recruit. 

2. Ivan Perisic – Inter Milan 

Although Inter are discussing a new deal with Perisic, the Croatia international will be available as a free agent next summer. He has been remarkable for the past few seasons and is very versatile, being able to play as a wing-back or winger. So, he could certainly add a lot to any teams. But, it remains a doubt whether Inter will let him go for free. 

1. Denis Zakaria – Borussia Monchengladbach 

The Swiss midfielder has attracted attention from a number of top clubs such as Roma, Juventus and Premier League clubs. He is a defensive minded player and seems cut out for the Premier League. So, he could be a massive free agent signing next summer.

After Mbappe’s 10/10 rating from L’Equipe, here are the other 12 instances when L’Equipe gave a player a 10/10 rating

0

Kylian Mbappe recently earned a 10/10 rating from L’Equipe for his performance against Kazakhstan in the World Cup qualifiers. The journalists at the French publication are reputed for their stringent evaluation. So, here are the other 12 times players have been given a 10/10 rating. 

1. Franck Sauzee – France U21s vs Greece U21s, 1988

France scored three goals against Greece in the finals of the U21 final. Franck Suazee scored two of the three goals, and would be the first of two players to receive a 10/10 rating in that game. 

2. Bruno Martini – France U21s vs Greece U21s, 1988

The other player to receive the 10/10 rating from L’Equipe in the game against Greece U21 was Bruno Martini, the goalkeeper for France. He also kept a clean sheet in the game to earn the rating. 

3. Oleg Salenko – Russia vs Cameroon, 1994

Salenko scored four goals against Cameroon in the World Cup to help his country win 6-1. The Russian went on to share the Golden Boot at the competition as well. 

4. Lars Windfeld – Aarhus vs Nantes, 1997

Windfield was a Danish goalkeeper that couldn’t make it into the national team ahead of Peter Schmeichel. But, he kept a clean sheet against French club Nantes in the UEFA Cup in 1997, and was given a 10/10 rating by L’Equipe as a result. 

5. Lionel Messi – Barcelona vs Arsenal, 2010

Not one player would receive a 10/10 rating between 1997 and 2010 before Lionel Messi. The Argentinian scored four goals against Arsenal in the Champions League for his first 10/10 rating from L’Equipe. 

6. Lionel Messi – Barcelona vs Bayer Leverkusen, 2012 

Two years after his display against Arsenal, Messi would score five goals against Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen and was awarded with top marks once again. 

7. Robert Lewandowski – Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid, 2013 

The Polish striker was bagging in the goals with Dortmund as well, and he scored four in the first leg of the semifinal against Real Madrid. As a result, he earned the first and only 10/10 rating. 

8. Carlos Eduardo – Nice vs Guingamp, 2014 

Eduardo scored five goals in the game to earn the 10/10 rating. He scored a first half hat-trick and later added two more to his tally. 

9. Neymar – Paris Saint-Germain vs Dijon, 2018 

Neymar had six contributions in the 8-0 win against Dijon. The winger scored four times and assisted two goals. 

10. Dusan Tadic – Real Madrid vs Ajax, 2019 

As part of Ajax’s remarkable 2018/19 run, they overcame the biggest club in the world, Real Madrid. He had a superb performance on the pitch and also delivered a key assist to knock out the Spanish giants. 

11. Lucas Moura – Ajax vs Tottenham, 2019 

Tottenham needed three goals to make it to the finals of the Champions League, and Lucas Moura’s second half hat-trick single-handedly 

12. Serge Gnabry – Tottenham vs Bayern Munich, 2019

Gnabry scored four goals against Tottenham in the Champions League, and was the last player to receive a 10/10 rating from L’Equipe before Kylian Mbappe in 2021.

Australian skipper Aaron Finch said “This is huge. To be the first Australian team to be able to do it. So proud. We knew our backs were against the wall. We had some great individual performances, some great team performances. Can’t believe people wrote him off saying he was done (Warner). That’s when he plays his best cricket. Was almost like poking the bear. The player of the tournament for me (Zampa). Mitch Marsh – what a way to start his innings today. Wade came into this game with an injury cloud but got a job done. Stoinis did the business.”

Warner was humiliated at this venue by IPL (Indian Premier League). It was the tournament where Warner made a comeback, after not being in a good form but today he proved his worth to the entire world.

New Zealand struggled in first 10 overs with Martin Guptill’s 28 runs ‘out off 35 balls.

FIFA 22: How to do the 85-rated Marco Asensio Adidas Numbers Up SBC and is it worth doing?

0

FIFA 22 has officially released on 1st October. EA Sports has brought Hypermotion technology to FIFA 22 to give it a fluid feel. There have been mixed reviews about the new game so far. The gameplay has been good till now as it has become more difficult to score goals and the defensive part of the game has also improved quite a lot.

EA Sports are currently running the Adidas Numbers Up promo on FIFA 22. The players featuring in the promo will get one of their stats, pace, dribbling or pacing increased to 99 eventually through 3 upgrades.

Is the 85-rated Marco Asensio Adidas Numbers Up SBC worth doing?

The 85-rated Marco Asensio Adidas Numbers Up card comes at a very low cost considering the relatively low price of 83 and 84 rated cards in the transfer market. In most cases, there will be enough fodders in your club for the 82-rated squad. You may just need to buy a few players to complete the 84-rated squad. In my case, it just cost me around 20,000 FIFA coins for the card. So getting an upgradable card for 20k FIFA coins is a bargain for me.

Most probably his 91 dribbling would be increased to 99 dribbling in the future. It could be a great card then.

Let’s take a look at his stats in detail:

Screenshot 642
Screenshot 643

The 85-rated Marco Asensio Adidas Numbers Up card has a high attacking work rate and medium defensive work rate. It also has a decent 4* skill move and 3* weak foot. I have applied Hawk style chemistry to increase its pace, shooting and physical.

Screenshot 644
Screenshot 645

The dribbling stat of this card is exceptional. Its pace is also decent but the shooting and passing could have been better. The physical is also on the downside. So if you put a hawk chemistry style. it will improve the shooting and physical and also give you some extra pace to go past defenders.

Screenshot 646

I have linked the 85-rated Marco Asensio Adidas Numbers Up card with Fekir/Parejo and Shevchenko. It is on 10 chem which will give it the highest boost. The card is also quite good in game. You can dribble inside from the left flank and shoot from outside the box as it has a decent long shot, shot power and curve.

The 85-rated Marco Asensio Adidas Numbers Up SBC has a very low cost, so it would be a no brainer to do this card and save it for 99 stats later on, even if you don’t intend to play it right now.

Is the Base Icon Upgrade SBC worth doing?

The main dilemma regarding this pack is whether you will get a good icon as this is not a player pick that you can choose from. The chances of getting an Icon worth more than the SBC is not that great. But if you manage to pack the base version of Pele, Maradona, Ronaldo, Zidane, Cantona, Ronaldinho, etc it can be great for your FUT team.

I have packed 86 rated ST Shevchenko. Although his rating isn’t that great, he is valued at around 500,000 in the transfer market. So my pack luck hasn’t been that bad.

Let’s take a look at the stats in more detail:

Screenshot 632
Screenshot 633

The base version of Shevchenko has a high attacking and defending work rate which is great considering he is an ST. However, his skill move is only 3* but he has got a 4* weak foot.

Screenshot 634
Screenshot 635

The pace and shooting of this card are incredible. It has 88 pace and 90 shooting attributes. The only downside is passing, which is very low, although the dribbling and physical stats are decent.

Screenshot 631

The 86 rated Shevchenko gives all my players decent connection and is also quite good upfront. Considering the price of this card, the Base Icon Upgrade pack hasn’t gone too bad for me.

Let us know in the comments down below what you have packed from the Base Icon Upgrade SBC.

Here’s the Best XI of the last decade (2011-2021)

0

The last ten years have captured an entire era of elite footballers playing out their prime years. And in this article, we will outline the lineup of the best footballers of the decade gone by. 

GK: Manuel Neuer 

Supercup

The German goalkeeper has revolutionised his position like no one else, enabling Bayern Munich to almost play with 11 outfield players. The sweeper keeper has easily been the best over the last ten years and takes the spot between the sticks. 

RB: Dani Alves 

Alves started the decade with Barcelona and went on to feature for Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain, winning trophies with all clubs. He was most recently featured on the pitch for Sao Paulo and has now returned to Barcelona at 38. 

CB: Sergio Ramos 

ramos

Sergio Ramos might not have the best defensive pedigree of all centre-backs in contention, but has unrivalled determination and leadership qualities. Guiding the world’s biggest club to a hat-trick of Champions League trophies and their 34th La Liga title, Ramos makes it into the lineup with ease. 

CB: Thiago Silva 

The Brazilian centre-back started out the decade with a Scudetto playing for AC Milan, and subsequently the Italian Super Cup. He then earned a €42 million move to PSG. He has since established himself as a club legend, and after moving to Chelsea in 2020, won the Champions League. Despite a number of competitors for the spot, Silva takes his place in the line-up. 

LB: Marcelo

Although he is mainly on the bench now, Marcelo is without a doubt the best left-back of the last ten years. The Brazilian won four Champions Leagues with Real Madrid and lifted every available trophy there is to win playing for Los Blancos. 

CM: Andres Iniesta

Iniesta is an undisputed Barcelona legend and is still playing at the age of 37, with J1 League club Vissel Kobe. The midfielder won every available trophy with club and country and is one of the best of the decade gone by. He capped it off by winning the Japanese Cup with Kobe in 2019. 

CM: Toni Kroos 

modric casemiro kroos

Kroos was named the German footballer of the year in 2018 and was a vital part of the midfield in Real Madrid’s hat-trick of Champions League victories. He won the 2014 World Cup with Germany and subsequently made the switch from Bayern Munich to Real Madrid. 

CM: Luka Modric 

Modric Is the only midfielder to be awarded the Ballon d’Or in the 2010s. Prior to his award in 2018, the last time the award wasn’t given to Messi or Ronaldo was in 2007. At the time Kaka won the award playing for AC Milan. In nine years at Real Madrid, he has won every available trophy and also captained Croatia to the 2018 World Cup final. 

RW: Lionel Messi

Messi is one of the greatest players to ever kick a ball, as is evident from his six Ballon d’Or awards. The Argentinian is also a strong contender for this year’s award, which would extend his record tally to seven. He also earned his first international trophy with Argentina recently, lifting the Copa America 2021 with the Albiceleste this semester.  

ST: Robert Lewandowski 

E2ALewandowskilsbXMAIX ak

Luis Suarez and Karim Benzema were strong contenders for the striker spot. But, having broken Gerd Muller’s 40 goals in one Bundesliga season record last year, the Pole is deservedly the best number 9 in the world right now. His positioning and goalscoring prowess for both club and country is unrivalled. 

LW: Cristiano Ronaldo 

Alongside Messi, the lineup would not be complete without Ronaldo. The five-time Ballon d’Or award winner is still bagging in the goals at Manchester United and is Real Madrid’s highest ever goalscorer. He ended the last decade with Juventus, winning the Scudetto with them twice.

Most disappointing 2021 summer signings XI so far

0

A number of signings were made this summer to revamp squads and add depth and quality to teams. While all signings are made with positive intent, not all of them work out. 

Although we are only a third of the way into the new season, there are a number of players that have been disappointing at their new club. Of course, there is plenty of time to improve since they have more than 20 games left this season. 

And in this article, we will look at the lineup of the most disappointing summer signings of 2021 so far. 

GK: Paulo Gazzaniga (Fulham) 

Previously of Tottenham, Gazzaniga has found it difficult to adjust to the Championship with Fulham. He has been benched for six straight games and has been replaced by Marek Rodak. 

RB: Denzel Dumfries (Inter Milan) 

The Dutch defender was very impressive for the national team at the 2020 Euros. But, he has failed to replicate the same form at Inter and effectively replace Achraf Hakimi. Inter Milan are already considering the competition for the player to help him improve. 

CB: Eric Garcia (Barcelona)

Garcia returned to Barcelona this summer as a free agent, ending his contract with Manchester City. However, his second spell at Camp Nou has not turned out quite according to plan. 

CB: Sergio Ramos (Paris Saint-Germain) 

The former Real Madrid captain made the move to Paris Saint-Germain after he failed to renew his contract with Los Blancos. The Spaniard has been injured since arriving at his new club and is yet to make his debut. However, he is now in training and is expected to play his first game soon. 

LB: Danny Rose (Watford) 

The former England international has not kept a single clean sheet this season. He has been very poor on the pitch, conceded a penalty and has been dribbled past twice. Despite being signed on a free transfer, Rose has become a concern for the team. 

CM: Marcel Sabitzer (Bayern Munich) 

The former Leipzig captain followed Julian Nagelsmann and Dayot Upamecano to Bayern Munich. However, he has not managed to break into the lineup ahead of Thomas Muller, Joshua Kimmich or Leon Goretzka. He also hasn’t had a single goal contribution to his name yet. 

CM: Saul Niguez (Chelsea) 

Saul’s Chelsea debut was short-lived, with the Spaniard struggling to adapt to the pace of the Premier League. He has since been given chances in other competitions and is slowly improving, but has not managed to live up to the expectations that the club had for the former Atletico Madrid man. 

RM: Francisco Trincao (Wolves)  

The Portuguese winger has not managed to contribute to a single goal in eight league games yet. He played 40 times for Barcelona last year and has not been able to replicate the same form in England. 

LM: Jadon Sancho (Manchester United) 

The former Borussia Dortmund man made his long-awaited return to Manchester this summer. But, he has only started three league games and is yet to provide a goal contribution for the team. Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford are seemingly in front of the player in the pecking order. 

ST: Luuk De Jong (Barcelona) 

Luuk De Jong was seemingly an impulse signing by Barcelona after the late departure of Antoine Griezmann. The Dutchman has been poor in all his outings, and Barcelona is looking to move him on immediately. 

ST: Andre Silva (RB Leipzig) 

Silva joined Leipzig after scoring 28 goals in 32 league games for Frankfurt last season. But, after netting only three times so far this season, the fans have been left disappointed with his initial impact on the team.

Thiago Almada to join Atlanta United in January; will be the most expensive MLS player ever

0

Thiago Almada of Argentinian club Vélez Sarsfield is all set to join MLS club Atlanta United. The 20-year-old also attracted interest from several top clubs in Europe, but has decided to join the American franchise instead. 

Both Manchester clubs from the Premier League, Marseille and Lyon were hoping to attract the youngster to Europe, but the situation has turned out otherwise. 

Atlanta United will pay a fee worth $15 million, plus add-ons for the attacking midfielder. This would make Thiago Almada the most expensive player ever in the MLS, as well as for Atlanta United. 

 “I’ll join Atlanta United in the January transfer window, it’s true,” Almada said on Monday to the TyC Sports show Paso a Paso. “The deal is done but no official yet”. He will sign a contract until 2026 with the American club, and will sign in the midseason transfer window. 

The two clubs reached an agreement in August, but the structure of the deal meant that it was not possible for the transfer to be completed in the summer. Currently valued at $22 million on Transfermarkt, Almada will become the most valuable player in MLS when he completes his transfer. 

Thiago Almada has provided nine goals and six assists in 33 games across all competitions for Vélez Sarsfield. He has also been handed his first Argentina international call-up for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers. The player is expected to make his debut for the Albiceleste in the upcoming week.

UEFA Champions League 21/22: The top 5 underdogs this year

0

The Champions League is no stranger to teams punching above their weight. There are underdogs every year that make it to the knockout rounds despite the odds stacked against them. And here are the teams that are creating such status for themselves this year. 

5. Benfica 

Benfica are currently in third place in their group, behind Barcelona. The Portuguese team needs to win both their remaining games against Barcelona and Dynamo Kyiv to qualify for the Round of 16 and dump Barcelona out. They have already defeated the Blaugrana 3-0 in the group stage and will have to repeat the result to make it through. 

4. Villarreal 

The Europa League winners are second in their group behind Manchester United, although level on points. They face the daunting task of hosting Manchester United and travelling to Atalanta to earn their spot in the knockout stages of the Champions League. 

3. Ajax 

Ajax’s 2018/19 performance in the Champions League is still fresh in the minds of football fans. And this year, it seems like they are set to mount a similar challenge. They have already qualified for the knockout stages by winning their first four games in the competition. 

2. FC Porto 

The Portuguese club were slotted in the group of death including Atletico Madrid, Liverpool and AC Milan. They are second behind Liverpool and ahead of Atletico Madrid in third. They will face both these teams in their remaining games if they are to earn a qualifying spot. 

1. Sheriff Tiraspol

Sir Alex Ferguson picks his all-time Manchester United XI

0

Sir Alex Ferguson was asked to pick his all-time Manchester United XI and did not hesitate to reveal who the first name on his team sheet would be.

The legendary Scotsman spent 23 years at Old Trafford, winning an incredible 39 trophies, including 13 Premier League titles and two Champions Leagues.

Ferguson’s time at United saw him oversee a slew of exceptional players, from Eric Cantona and Roy Keane through Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney, and Cristiano Ronaldo. When asked to name his finest United team, the Red Devils’ manager confessed that it was an “impossible” task due to the abundance of skill in both attack and midfield.

“People ask you: ‘Who is your best Man United team?’ and it’s impossible,” he told the Sunday World. “It is impossible. You look at the strikers I had, going back to [Brian] McClair, [Mark] Hughes, [Andy] Cole, Cantona, [Ruud] van Nistelrooy, [Louis] Saha, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, [Dwight] Yorke, Teddy Sheringham.”

“Then to the present players — Wayne Rooney, [Robin] van Persie, Chicharito [Javier Hernandez]. How do you pick out of that? Cantona and somebody else maybe? The midfield was probably a bit easier because you have [Roy] Keane, [Bryan] Robson and Scholes — they were fantastic players — and [David] Beckham, Ronaldo and [Ryan] Giggs.”

Ferguson did not make any changes to his defense, although, in his autobiography, he stated that former United left-back Denis Irwin would be the most likely to earn a spot in his squad.

“Honestly, I would say Denis Irwin would be the one certainty to get in the team. I called him an eight out of 10,” Ferguson wrote. “At Highbury in one game, he had a bad pass back in the last minute and [Dennis] Bergkamp came in and scored. After the game, the press said: ‘You must be disappointed in that pass back.’ I said: ‘Well, one mistake in 10 years isn’t bad.’ He was an unbelievable player.”

Xavi’s presentation in full as the new Barcelona coach

0

Xavi Hernandez was presented as the new permanent head coach of Barcelona today. The former midfielder has finally returned to Camp Nou after years of speculation about a possible return to his boyhood club. 

The 41-year-old was presented at the stadium and had a press conference that lasted over an hour. Here are the things that were discussed, in quotes carried by Marca

He was first asked about the youngsters and his role in developing them further into talented prospects for the future.

“I come here to help the [youngsters] to perform, to be happy,” said Xavi at his press conference.

“We count on everyone. We want to see them all and [help them] perform in training.

“They are very young. Nico, Gavi … it is difficult to understand how they put in this [level of] performance at this age. You have to help them perform in each game. Each match is a final exam.”

Xavi’s former teammates are still playing at Barcelona such as Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba, Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Gerard Pique. He was asked about his relationship with the veterans in the team as well, to which he said: 

“I have a very good relationship with [the veterans],” added Xavi.

“I have a direct relationship with them and I have already spoken with some. They have to lead the way in important moments. They have to lead the team. We have very young players. We will give them power in the dressing room.

“The plan is the same as for all the players. They all start from scratch. The ones I know, are precisely the ones whom I will push the most.

“I want them to lead the dressing room and they are very important because they have experienced many situations. I know their strengths and weaknesses. I have no problem. I consider it an advantage.”

Xavi was asked the highly anticipated question of his footballing philosophy and the style of play that Barcelona could expect to play. 

“More than the system, it is the model, the idea,” noted Xavi.

“At Al Sadd we played 3-4-3 because we were very dominant. It will be different here.

“In the end, it’s Cruyff’s idea. My first defender is the striker and the first attacker is the goalkeeper. You have to work tactically, know what to do on the field in different situations.

“We will tell those who are there what the idea is, what the rules are. We have a plan so that the footballer can perform. I have everything planned until the Espanyol game. The method, the idea and the game model are explained.

“If you can compete in our own way, we will be very close to achieving the results. If we convey to them that this way you can play well and win, I think we will succeed.

“We believe that the best way to win is by playing well.

“[All ways] are respectable, but we want to play happy, attacking [football], without speculating, with high pressure, with possession. Knowing why things are done. We will try to help them.”

Considering his detailed answer, we can expect the classical 4-3-3 at Barcelona once again, with high possession and pressure being priorities. 

The new coach was also asked about his inspirations and the people he models his coaching style after, and how he will be compared to others as well: 

“I have learned from everyone. There are times when I am on the bench and I remember comments from coaches that I have had [in the past],” he stated.

“I have been very lucky because they have given me a lot of experience. I have been nurtured by many people. I have an idea and I want to convey it.

“Being compared to [Guardiola] is a success for everything he has done. He is a reference to me, the best in the world.

“Any comparison with him is bad for me. I know where I am, we have great demands for ourselves and the results will tell.”

The Spaniard will take charge of his boyhood club for the first time after the international break in the local derby against Espanyol. 

ICC T20 World cup 2021: India vs Pakistan match break records in terms of viewership

0

India vs Pakistan has always been a speculated match. There’s always a different kind of excitement and thrill during the match. Though win and loss are two elements of every sport but losing on either side in this game can provide extreme reactions. This time the match between them has provided with the highest viewership that is 167 million and broke the record of all time.

India’s clash against Bangladesh in the same tournament but in a different season had a reach of 113 million and AMA of 45,000.

The audience was grown using different techniques like high decibel campaigns, good storytelling, dedicated regional programming and customer innovations. India’s loss definitely made the fans sad but the power of cricket to engross the whole nation got known.

A major sports channel confirmed the ICC men’s T20 World Cup 2021, delivered exceptional viewership on the network, that registered a cumulative reach of 238 million till last week (qualifiers + first 12 games of Super 12 stage).

The opening stage was dominated by the most anticipated match of the season, India vs Pakistan. Though it became quite predictable in the end the viewers were more involved with how their respective team is performing.

On the digital platform, Disney+Hotstar which is the official streaming partner of the T20 Men’s World Cup garnered 12 million views on the India-Pakistan faceoff in the cricket tournament in Abu Dhabi. The India-Pakistan match did not set any new records on the OTT platforms in terms of viewership but did come very close to the highest viewership that Disney+Hotstar have had so far.

According to BARC, the overall consumption reached 47 billion minutes.

However, the exit of the Indian team may have a negative effect on the viewership of television and the OTT platform.

The match between the Men in Blue and Men in Green is always an eminent one, thanks to the streak that the Indian team carried into the tournament, that is never losing to the Green Army in World Cup history in ODIs and T20Is.

Is the 88-rated Daniel Parejo card worth doing?

The 88-rated Daniel Parejo Rulebreakers SBC is one of the best priced SBCs to date in FIFA 22. It comes at a very low price of 100k FIFA coins, if you build the team from scratch, though in most cases you’ll have enough fodders for the 83-rated squad. The card has got some good stats. Let’s take a look at them.

The 88-rated Daniel Parejo Rulebreakers SBC card has a medium work rate for both attacking and defending. It has a 3* skill move which can be a let-off for some, however, the 4* weak foot can make up for it.

Screenshot 619

The Rulebreakers card has good attacking stats with 87 pace, 85 shooting, 85 pass and 85 dribbling. The only downside is the defending and physical stats, though both of them are 70+. You can easily play the 88-rated Daniel Parejo Rulebreakers SBC card in CAM instead of its base position of CM.

Screenshot 615

I have a La Liga and Bundesliga mixed team, so the Daniel Parejo card fits perfectly into my team. Parejo along with Fekir manages the attacking side of the play whereas Goretzka oversees the defensive part.

If you have enough fodder or have 100k FIFA coins, then this SBC is a must do. The player is good in game and he can give great long pass as well as shoot from long distances.

ICC T20 World Cup semifinals: New Zealand vs England in 1st semifinal, Pakistan vs Australia in the 2nd one

0

T20 World Cup 2021 has finally got its semifinalists, which is held in UAE. Sadly, India couldn’t register its name in the semifinals for this season but surely there are more opportunities to come. Afghanistan also got dismissed from the tournament as the team got defeated by New Zealand on Sunday. The kiwis are all set to play against England in the 1st Semifinal and Pakistan will be playing against Australia in the 2nd semifinal.

India got dropped from the tournament as Afghanistan lost against New Zealand

Kohli and his team lost the first two very important matches against Pakistan and New Zealand. India will be playing against Namibia on Monday but unfortunately, that could not pave India’s way to the semifinals. The last time India got knocked off before the semifinals were in WT20, Sri Lanka.

This is the 3rd time New Zealand is qualified as a semifinalist in T20 World Cup following 2007 and 2016.

Teams that have made it to the semifinals most of the times

Australia- 16 times

India, Pakistan- 15 times

New Zealand- 14 times

England- 13 times

Pakistan is the only team of this season that has won all 5 matches in group stage levels which helped it top the points table in Group 2. Pakistan on Sunday beat Scotland and finalized the knockouts list.

England lost one game against South Africa but still, it ranked number 1 in group 2. Despite defeating England, South Africa still couldn’t make it to the semifinals, the reason is they have a lower run rate (NRR) than England. Though England, Australia and South Africa have reached 8 points but they two could only make it to the semifinals. Australia with an NRR of +1.216 had a victory against West Indies and finished at second place.

T20 Semifinals schedule

England vs Australia will be held at Abu Dhabi on 10 November. (7:30 pm IST)

Pakistan vs New Zealand will be held at Dubai on 11 November( 7:30 pm IST)

Brendan Rodgers verbally agrees to join Manchester United

0

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers is reportedly in talks with Manchester United to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjær at the club. The Norwegian has come under extreme pressure in recent weeks, losing both derbies against Liverpool and Manchester City in embarrassing fashion at Old Trafford. 

According to Caught Offside, Brendan Rodgers has verbally agreed to take the job at Old Trafford. However, there are still some obstacles to the deal being completed. Solskjær does not believe that he is on borrowed time, despite the recent losses to both of their biggest rivals. 

The Manchester United board held a meeting about Solskjær’s future after the 5-0 thrashing at home. They decided then to give him another chance to redeem himself, and he earned a 3-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur. However, a draw against Atalanta in the Champions League and another Old Trafford defeat to Manchester City have put the pressure back on his shoulders. 

Brendan Rodgers has done a remarkable job at Leicester City, turning them into regular competitors for a Champions League place. Under the guidance of Rodgers, Leicester lifted the Community Shield and FA Cup last year, capping off an impressive season despite missing out on the Champions League on the final day. 

Rodgers is surely set up for a bigger job in the future, but his history with Liverpool might prove to be a stumbling block in the move to Old Trafford. He has also been very successful with Celtic in Scotland, before moving to Merseyside, and now to Leicester.

0

India smashed Scotland with their massive effort in today’s match held at Dubai International stadium. India had to chase 86 runs which they accomplished in 6.3 overs. Scotland batted first and all their wickets were gone in 17.4 overs. Team India took its run rate (NRR) to +1.619 which is best among all the teams, even better than Pakistan(+1.065) which ranks the highest. India moved to the third spot in Group 2. The fastest 50 of T20 World Cup 2021 came in this match within four overs. The team’s victory by a huge margin has to be Virat Kohli’s best present on his 33rd birth anniversary.

India vs Scotland : Match Highlights

Indian captain Virat Kohli won the toss and decided to bowl first. Indian bowlers Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammad Shami had their career-best T20 performances as they took 3 wickets giving only 15 runs.

He added ” I was enjoying the game today although everyone knew that we had to win by a huge margin to uplift our run rate but we gave our 100%. If we play like this, then certainly no team can beat us.”

Skipper Virat Kohli stated that it was a dominating performance on their side. The bowlers did their job very well. He appreciated the batting of KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma. He added that the bowlers of Scotland performed well too that created pressure on them but the batting in those two overs changes the entire game for them.

This was the comeback everyone wished Team India to have. Everyone is eager to see India’s next performance against Namibia which will decide India’s final destiny in the ICC T20 World Cup for this edition.

Vinicius Jr or Kylian Mbappe: Who is the better performer right now?

0

Vinicius Jr is having the best season of his career so far under Carlo Ancelotti. The Brazilian winger has scored nine goals this season (7 in La Liga and 2 in the UCL). This is his best ever tally, and we are only done with a third of the season. 

The player has become a major attacking threat for Los Blancos, and is undroppable given his current form. His confidence and finishing have both improved under Ancelotti, and the 21-year-old is undoubtedly among the best in the league right now. 

With Vinicius Jr entering the conversation for the best talents in the upcoming decade, a comparison with Kylian Mbappe is on the horizon. The French forward is 18 months older than Vinicius, and lifted the FIFA World Cup with France as a teenager. 

Mbappe has scored six goals (5 in Ligue 1 and the other in UCL) this season. His passing accuracy is also marginally less than that of Vinicius.

Based on the numbers alone, Vinicius is having a marginally better season than Mbappe. However, the numbers do not tell the full story. The Brazilian is the focus of Real Madrid’s attack right now, and is charged with leading counter attacks due to his brilliant pace and dribbling. 

While Mbappe enjoys a similar role, he is a much more well-rounded footballer due to his experience. But, if Vinicius continues to keep up his form in the months and years to come, he could easily be one of the best players in the world. 

Xavi leaves Al Sadd and will return to Barcelona

0

Xavi has agreed to his departure with Al Sadd and is all set to join Barcelona as their new head coach. The former midfielder was the favourite to permanently replace Ronald Koeman, and he is now on his way. The managerial transfer has been given the here we go signal by Fabrizio Romano, which means that the deal is as good as done. 

Koeman was sacked after a 1-0 loss to Rayo Vallecano, following Barcelona’s worst start to the league in over 30 years. Sergi Barjuan is temporarily in charge of the first team, and has drawn and won a game each. 

On Wednesday, Xavi said: ‘I’ve been talking to Barca for days, it’s done,’ Xavi said.

‘But now it depends on the conversations between clubs, they need to reach an agreement. Barca is coming to talk, we are all eager and excited. We’ll see if it ends up being done.

‘I really want to go home. I hope it happens. I have a contract and now the clubs have to negotiate. They already know my position.’

Al Sadd has also confirmed that Xavi has left the club and will be returning to Barcelona. The release clause in his contract was around €5 million, and the Catalonians have completed all the negotiations to seal his return to Camp Nou. 

Barcelona will have Barjuan in charge of their La Liga game this weekend and will announce the return of Xavi soon. They are expected to present him to the fans next week as their new first-team manager.

Real Madrid 2-1 Shakhtar Donetsk: Benzema nets double; 1000 European goals for Real

0

Real Madrid defeated Shakhtar Donetsk 2-1 in the Champions League, with Karim Benzema netting a double. The home team were unfortunate to have not scored more, with a number of great chances coming their way. 

Luka Modric had a brilliant opportunity in the early stages of the game. While the Ballon d’Or winner was fully expected to bury it from close range, he was denied by a great save from the goalkeeper. However, Anatolii Trubin would end up gifting a golden chance to the opposition. 

The Ukraine U21 played out the ball, but Marlon Santos was pounced on by Vinicius Jr. The Brazilian successfully recovered the ball, and passed it to Karim Benzema, who tapped the ball into the net. The first goal was the 13-time Champions’ 1000th goal in European competition. 

Shortly before half time, Fernando equalised for the visitors. Alan Patrick received a pass with his chest and set it up for his teammate, who got past his marker and launched an unstoppable effort past Thibaut Courtois. On the other side of the break, Karim Benzema would score to give Madrid the lead again. 

Vinicius Jr found his striking partner yet again, and after some sublime play around the edge of the box, Benzema slotted the ball into the back of the net. 

Real Madrid are now at the top of their table, with 9 points from 4 games. Their opponents, Shakhtar, are last in the table with 1 point from a possible 12.

Sunil Chhetri to be awarded the Dhyan Chand Khel Ratna award

0

Indian football team captain Sunil Chhetri is set to receive the Dhyan Chand Khel Ratna. The forward is going to become the first footballer to be given the award. Chhetri is well among the list of the greatest footballers the country has ever produced. 

The Khel Ratna is given to athletes who have achieved sporting excellence in their fields. It is the highest sporting honour that can be given to a sportsperson in India. The prize money given out is worth 25 lakh rupees. 

It was first awarded in 1991/92, and was given out to chess legend Vishwanathan Anand. Sunil Chhetri is among a slew of other talented and accomplished sportspersons to be nominated for the award. It will be presented on November 13 by the current President of India, Ram Nath Kovind. 

Neeraj Chopra, Lovlina Borgohain, Sreejesh PR and Ravi Kumar are amongst the other athletes who have been shortlisted to receive the honour. Paralympians Avani Lekhara, Sumit Antil, Pramod Bhagat, Krishna Nagar, Manish Narwal, cricketer Mithali Raj and hockey player Manpreet Singh complete the list of nominees for the Khel Ratna award. 

Chhetri has made 125 appearances for the Indian national team, and has scored 80 goals for them. He has been named the Indian footballer of the year seven times throughout his career. The talismanic forward made his debut for India in 2005, and has led them to several accolades over the years, such as the South Asian Championship, the AFC Challenge Cup and the Intercontinental Cup. 

Top 5 reasons for India’s poor performance in ICC T20 World Cup

Team India has failed to perform well in the previous matches against Pakistan and New Zealand. Starting from the Indian Cricketing Fraternity to the commoners who love cricket, all of them have disappointment in their eyes. There’s win and loss in every game and it should be taken sportingly. Still, we have listed some factors which may be responsible for the team’s substandard performance.

The schedule of different tournaments in a row gave zero refreshment to the players

The Indian cricket team resumed playing last year against Australia. Since then, there has been no stopping. The team continued to play home series against England, where India played 3 ODI’s, 5 T20I’s and 4 tests.  India played WTC Final and four Test matches against England prior to IPL. The players got a gap for just 10 days before the T20 World Cup commenced. The lack of rest and refreshment took a toll on players, both physically and mentally.

The “Not so wise decisions” made by team management and selectors

The selection of the players for the T20 World Cup has been a hot topic, prior to and post the tournament. Players like Deepak Chahar and Yuzvendra Chahar were left out by the team even when they had top-notch performances in recent months.

The inclusion of Hardik Pandya is questionable since he lacked proper fitness and form. Some sources suggest that it was MS Dhoni who brought him to the team for this tournament. The shuffled batting order has brought in horrific results.

Top-order failure

The failure of top-order was visible when India played against Pakistan. Rohit Sharma made no runs, KL Rahul got out scoring 3. Virat accomplished his half-century but his strike rate (116) wasn’t very appealing. In the next match against New Zealand, the order changed but the performance degraded. The trio rolled for only 14, 18 and 9 runs leaving up to much for the middle order batters.

IPL being their favourite

The members of the Indian team speak highly about the Indian Premier League and its paycheck. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have the highest packages in the league. The BCCI and the players knew about the intensity of IPL before the T20 tournament but still took no action towards it. Former cricketer Wasim Akram stated, “They think IPL is enough, not taking international cricket seriously.”

The failure of Indian bowling attack

The bowlers strived to make an impact in both matches. Pakistan had 152 to chase and they succeeded without losing a single wicket. Jaspreet Bumrah had a good performance against New Zealand as he struck twice. The other bowlers could not make an impression and the kiwis finished the game in 15 overs.
