He once took the wrong bus to his opponent’s team at the 2002 World Cup . The 2002 World Cup was first held in Asia.
Precisely in East Asian countries, Japan and South Korea are the hosts. At the 2002 World Cup, England joined in Group F.
The Three Lions fought Sweden, Nigeria and their rivals at the time, Argentina.
Argentina was the team that brought England home at the 1998 World Cup. Moreover, at that time, the drama from Diego Simeone made David Beckham receive a red card.
So what happened to Trevor Sinclair when he got into the wrong Argentine bus? Let’s see the story further.
After only winning a draw against Sweden, England must win when they meet Argentina in the second match. Meanwhile, if Argentina win, they will qualify because in the previous match they beat Nigeria.
England finally appear all-out contra Argentina by lowering the best squad. Especially if you remember their defeat in the previous World Cup.
The all-out appearance turned out to be making England lose its best player, Owen Hargreaves. He suffered an injury in the 19th minute and finally Trevor Sinclair came on to replace him.
Sinclair’s game was no less great than the players he replaced. Sinclair helps England’s midfield to win the ball.
England finally paid for the defeat in the previous World Cup. They managed to end the match at Sapporo Dome, Japan with a win.
David Beckham also paid off his debt for scoring the only goal in this match through the penalty spot. He got a penalty kick after Michael Owen was brought down.
After the match and celebration of the England national team, Sinclair was randomly selected for a doping test. After the test, the official asked him to quickly get on the bus.
Trevor Sinclair Wrong Bus
However, something turned out to be a nightmare for him. “I had an absolute nightmare,” said Sinclair.
“I saw a number of men wearing suits at the front of the bus but they weren’t from the FA (English Football Federation) and I didn’t know. I ended up walking a third of the bus and then got off again,” said Sinclair.
Luckily at that time, Argentina’s chance to qualify was still open despite losing. Argentina ultimately did not qualify because of a draw with Sweden, and England finished runners-up in the group after drawing with Nigeria and collecting 5.
With the status of a big name team, the German national team should not lose again in the 2022 World Cup . There is no reason, Hansi Flick’s fleet must bring home the title of champion from Qatar.
In the title race at the four-yearly biggest stage, Panzer Europe started an uphill battle from the Group E phase. Later, three teams are ready to wait with grim faces, namely Japan, Costa Rica, and Spain.
The fans of the German national team must be aware of what they will face in the 2022 World Cup. Understandably,
it is not impossible for a tragic fate to happen again. Although on paper Germany’s strength is better, there is no guarantee that they can
easily walk into the next round. Japan, Costa Rica and Spain have their own capacities, and it won’t be easy.
Four years ago in Russia, Germany was battered. Coming to Russia as defending champions, onde mandeee…
Germany was unable to move from the group stage. Buried at the bottom of Group C standings, Germany only scooped up one win from Sweden (2-1).
Two more matches ended bitterly. Mexico beat Germany with a score of 1-0 and humiliated South Korea two goals without reply.
At that time, South Korea was led by Shin Tae-yong, who is now entrusted with managing the Indonesian national team.
The bad harvest in Russia is Die Mannschact’s darkest history in FIFA’s most prestigious balbalan event. As the holder of four World Cup champion titles, the result in the Red Bear Country is a disgrace.
Evidently, not long after Joachim Löw’s fleet collapsed, Manuel Neuer et al immediately received a torrent of criticism and ridicule. From ordinary fans to legends, everyone pours out their feelings via social media.
“When you don’t win this game, you have nothing to do in the next stage! (Germany) don’t deserve to be there! Period!,” said Mario Basler, a former Bayern Munich player.
Not wanting to be left behind, Michael Ballack was no less furious. The former Bayern Munich player, who had experienced the harshness of the Premier League in his Chelsea jersey, questioned several things. It is related to leadership, personality, to the mentality of coaches and players.
“You can always go out early with a bad team, but not with a team like this. Honest judgment has to start. Leadership?, Personality?, Mentality?” Ballack tweeted.
The former F1 champion, Nico Rosberg, was so sick that he didn’t write anything on his Twitter account. It signifies the heart of a miserable misery to see the destruction of the favorite team.
Würzburg-born NBA star, Dirk Nowitzki, admitted that he needed time to cool off his disappointment. “Can’t talk. I need time…” he wrote.
Fans also questioned Löw’s decision to bring in Manchester City winger Leroy Sane. In fact, Sane sculpted a terrible season with The Citizens .
In addition to helping City win the Premier League and Premier League Cup, Sane was also selected as the 2017-18 Premier League Best Young Player. Wise people say, learn from history.
Well, Germany has to be extra careful. Even though they are on the leading list, Hansi Flick’s troops must remain extra vigilant.
Don’t be fooled by big names. Remember, football is not math. Anything can happen on the gridiron. Beware…beware..
