The Most Beautiful Moment of Ex MU and 4 Other Stars at the 2010 World Cup

Diego Forlan

The Spanish national team was the best in the 2010 World Cup . However, personally, Diego Forlan was the best. The former MU bomber established himself as the Best Player and was entitled to bring home the Golden Ball.

Indeed, the Uruguay national team was not seeded at that time. La Celeste has indeed emerged as champion twice, 1930 and 1950, but it is only a story of the past.

Past

You see, since 1950, Uruguay is like other teams that do not have a great history at the biggest football party. At the 2010 World Cup South Africa, Uruguay was able to rise from the rubble of collapse.

Under the care of a cold-handed coach, Oscar Tabarez, Uruguay transformed into a terrible monster. Captain Forlan brought Uruguay to the semifinals before finally being stopped by Germany.

Uruguay national team finished in fourth position. This achievement repeats their success in the 1970 World Cup. Forlan is charming. He scored five goals which made him the top scorer with Thomas Muller (Germany), David Villa (Spain) and Wesley Sneijder (Netherlands).

Like the people of Uruguay, Forlan will also not forget the historic moment 12 years ago on the black continent of South Africa. “The 2010 World Cup was the most incredible experience. Our small country reached the semifinals. I was the top scorer, and the goal against Germany was voted the best,” said Forlan.

Not only Forlan, of course. The other four pillars from different countries also become an inseparable history of the 2010 World Cup. Who are they?

Thomas Muller
Last year, the most feeders in a year went to Thomas Muller. As is known, the old Bavarian midfielder spent almost his entire professional career as a footballer with Bayern Munich

Dangerous youth, that’s Thomas Muller. Being among the senior players did not make the quiet one clumsy.

Instead, he appeared crazy. As a result, he managed to score five goals, which made the 1989-born one of the top scorers with five goals.

For this great action, Muller was rewarded as the Best Young Player. At that time the star was only 20 years old.

 The 2018 World Cup in Russia presents many stories. One of them was when Cristiano Ronaldo carved a hat-trick record with the Portugal National Team .

The record was carved by the Portugal captain in the preliminary round of Group B, precisely against Spain in their first match. The match was fierce and ended in a 3-3 draw.

Ronaldo bought all three of Portugal’s goals against Spain which was guarded by David De Gea. Those goals made him the oldest hat-trick scorer in World Cup history.

Portugal faced Spain in their first match in Group B. The match was held at Fisht Olympic Stadium, Sochi, 15 June 2018.

The match that produced six goals was so tense. Because, the two teams take turns breaking into the opponent’s goal.

Portugal took the lead through Ronaldo’s 4th minute penalty, then Spain replied through Diego Costa’s 24th minute.

Ronaldo gave Portugal the lead again in the 44th minute after his shot from the end of the box escaped De Gea’s catch. However, Spain could take the lead through Diego Costa’s second goal in the 55th minute and Nacho’s spectacular shot in the 58th minute.

Portugal finally managed to secure a point thanks to Ronaldo’s third goal which he scored via a free kick.

Check out Ronaldo’s Goals Highlights

51st hat-trick

The hat-trick against Spain was the 51st hat-trick in Ronaldo’s career at club and national team level. It also made him the oldest hat-trick scorer in World Cup history.

33 Years 130 Days

Ronaldo scored that hat-trick at the age of 33 years and 130 days. He is listed as the oldest player ever to score a hat-trick in a World Cup match.

What happened after that?

In the second match, Ronaldo scored the only goal in Portugal’s 1-0 win over Morocco. Meanwhile, Spain won 1-0 over Iran thanks to a single goal from Diego Costa.

In the third match, Portugal drew 1-1 with Iran, while Spain drew 2-2 with Morocco.

Spain and Portugal qualified for the knockout phase as winners and runners-up in Group B with 5 points each.

These two teams then both stopped in the round of 16. Portugal was beaten by Uruguay 1-2, while Spain were eliminated by host Russia on penalties.

At that time, Ronaldo was still listed as a Real Madrid player. However, it was his last season with the Spanish club. On 10 July 2018, while the World Cup in Russia was still going on, Ronaldo joined Juventus.

Moving to Barcelona is a setback News

Bayern Munich legend: Moving to Barcelona is a setback,…

Bayern Munich legend: Moving to Barcelona is a setback, Lewandowski!

Moving to Barcelona is a setback

Bayern Munich legend Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has asked Robert Lewandowski to cancel his move to Barcelona. He considered the striker wasting his career if he moved to Barcelona.

Almost a decade, Lewandowski is an icon for Bayern Munich. He led Die Roten’s attack line well and successfully led FC Hollywood to win various trophies.

But the togetherness of the two parties threatened to end this summer. Lewandowski has confirmed that he will not renew his contract so he has the potential to leave this summer.

Rummenigge thinks Lewandowski will only destroy his career if he moves to Barcelona. “I can’t understand why he [Lewandowski] would want to move to Barcelona,” Rummenigge told Bild.

Read the legend’s full commentary below.

Worse

According to Rummenigge, moving to Barcelona is a big loss for Lewandowski. Because Barcelona is considered worse than Bayern.

So he considered the striker better to cancel his intention to defend Barcelona next season.

“With Barcelona’s current squad, can he [Lewandowski] win more trophies than Barcelona? Can Barcelona offer him something better? I don’t think so,”

Better Survive

Rummenigge hopes Lewandowski will change his mind. He wants the striker to stay at Bayern and if possible extend the contract there.

“Robert is irreplaceable at FC Bayern, and he is still needed by this team even though he is 34 years old. No striker can guarantee goals as much as him, and Robert is a top class player,”

“We all have to pray that Robert stays, because he is what makes the Bundesliga interesting. You have to do whatever it takes to keep him,” he said.

Tough Negotiations

According to information currently circulating, the process of Lewandowski’s move to Barcelona is still quite tough.

Barcelona are reportedly still struggling to meet the demands of the price set by Bayern Munich for the striker.

5 Strongest Candidate Countries to Win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar Argentina

Prediction of the 5 Strongest Candidate Countries to Win…

Prediction of the 5 Strongest Candidate Countries to Win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Are There Spain and England?

5 Strongest Candidate Countries to Win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar

About seven months from now the Qatar 2022 World Cup will begin. In welcoming the 2022 World Cup next November, FIFA has carried out group drawings for the finals of the prestigious four-year event.

The draw for the 2022 World Cup group phase will take place today, Friday (1/4/2022) at 23.00 WIB. Looking at the list of teams that have qualified for the 2022 World Cup, which team has the most chance of winning?

Here are 5 strong candidates for the 2022 World Cup:

1.Argentina

Argentina

Finally, there is the Argentine national team. This may be the last World Cup for Lionel Messi. He has had a difficult season with PSG, but has big ambitions to lead Argentina to glory in the 2022 World Cup.

Messi hopes to gain sweet results in the 2022 World Cup, as he just did with La Albiceleste -the nickname of the Argentine national team- in the 2022 Copa America. Messi’s ambitions will be supported by his teammates who are also quality players.

Yes, Lionel Scaloni has a very good squad. Evidently, Argentina are unbeaten in the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers. However, they have not been completely dominant. Even so, there was still time to improve his team.

In the group phase, Argentina itself is in Group C. There, they are in a group with Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland.

2. Spain

In second place, there is the Spanish national team. Spain has dimmed in the last decade. However, La Furia Roja-the nickname of the Spanish national team-looks tough under the tutelage of Luis Enrique. They made it to the semifinals of Euro 2020 before being eliminated on penalties against Italy.

Spain then advanced to the final of the UEFA Nations League in October 2021. La Furia Roja ended Italy’s 37-match unbeaten run in the semifinals. However, they failed to win the title because they lost to France in the final.

Now, at the 2022 World Cup, Spain is ready to compete again. Their squad is sure to be star-studded with a great mix of experienced and young players. They have plenty of options in midfield from Sergio Busquets, Thiago Alcantara, Fabian Ruiz and Rodri to Pedri and Gavi.

Spain also has a formidable defense and a promising front line. Suffice to say, it will be very interesting to see how Luis Enrique’s men perform at the 2022 World Cup. But in the group stage, they are in a hellish group because they are in the same group as Germany and Japan. One more against the winner of IC playoff 2 (Costa Rica vs New Zealand).

Then there is the England national team. They are seen as one of the forces in the world of football. Unfortunately, England’s trophy count does not reflect the potential they have always had in the squad.

However, England performed well in the last World Cup. They were also outstanding at Euro 2020. England reached the final, despite losing to France.

Gareth Southgate has many world class players in his squad. With the quality and depth of their squad, they could become one of the favorites to win. England itself is in Group B in the 2022 World Cup Group stage. They are in a group with Iran, the United States, and the winners of the Euro playoffs.

3. Brazil

Brazil

Then there is the Brazilian national team. They are arguably the most dominant team in the CONMEBOL 2022 World Cup Qualifiers. They won 14 of the total 17 matches and remained unbeaten in the qualifiers.

This could be Neymar’s last World Cup. Brazil can also compete for the title because it has a squad studded with stars. They have some outstanding forwards like Vinicius Jr and Antony is widely expected to form a deadly attacking trio alongside Neymar.

Brazil have a solid midfield featuring the likes of Casemiro, Fabinho, Fred, Arthur and Lucas Paqueta. Now it is interesting to wait for Brazil’s journey in the 2022 World Cup. They will face Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon in the group G stage.

4. France

France

In fourth place, there is France. They looked staggered at the 2020 European Cup. However, Les Bleus rose in the UEFA Nations League to win the title.

Now, they have ambitions to defend their title at the World Cup. With a squad that is almost the same as the 2018 World Cup, France is the favorite to win. Didier Deschamps still has many world-class players to rely on.

France itself is in Group D at the 2022 World Cup. They are in a group with Denmark, Tunisia, and also IC Playoff 1.

5. Portugal

portugal

The next team that is the favorite to win the 2022 World Cup is Portugal. The Selecao das quinas have to go through a dramatic road to get a position on the pitch of this prestigious event.

Become a favorite team because it has a squad filled with the best world-class players.

Like the tough veteran defender Pepe. Meanwhile, in the middle of Fernando Santos’ team, there are agile and agile players Bruno Fernandes and Bernardo Silva.
