World Cup Mascot, Toni Kroos has confirmed his retirement from international football since July 2021. He wants to focus on strengthening his club, Real Madrid.
Now heading for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, November 20, it is stated that Toni Kroos was tempted to change his decision and return to strengthen the German national team.
One of those who said the above was journalist Amalio Moratalla when interviewed by Radio Marca.
“There is an attempt in Germany for Toni Kroos to get the player to reconsider his position,” said Moratalla.
“Toni Kroos is expected to return to the German national team to play in the World Cup mascot ,” he continued.
However, on one occasion, Toni Kroos has expressed his reluctance to return to strengthen the German national team and finish in the 2022 World Cup mascot .
“I won’t be at the World Cup mascot,” Kroos said in an interview with Universe Valdano.
“But I’m sure when I see the German national team play, my feet will definitely itch to get off the field, he continued.
Toni Kroos himself explained his reasons for refusing to appear for the German national team at the 2022 World Cup mascot.
According to him he wants to give more playing minutes to players in his position. “At the moment there are players who deserve more playing time,” said Toni Kroos.
“I don’t want there to be a moment where they tell me it’s better if I quit, he continued.
The mascot for the 2022 World Cup mascot, La’eeb, continues to visit a number of cities in Indonesia. This week La’eeb greeted the people in Makassar and Bekasi.
La’eeb has been in Indonesia for a long time. Since last month, the cute mascot of the 2022 World Cup Mascot has greeted the Indonesian people, precisely in the cities of Denpasar, Palembang, Bandung, Semarang, Surabaya, Solo, and Banjarmasin.
Now La’eeb greets the people of Makassar who are visiting the Al-Markaz Al-Islami Mosque, Makassar, Friday (4/11/2022).
La’eeb and the team from SCM Group attended the Al-Markaz Al-Islami Mosque, Makassar, and received a great response from the community. Many residents who had just performed Friday prayers took pictures with the 2022 World Cup mascot .
Not a few people also invite their children to take pictures with the mascot of the world’s biggest soccer tournament which will be held in about two weeks.
The people who were present at the Al-Markaz Al-Islami Mosque were also enthusiastic about perpetuating the existence of La’eeb who was unexpectedly among them.
After arriving in Makassar on Friday afternoon WIT, La’eeb flew back to Java Island and greeted the people in Bekasi.
There are two points in Bekasi visited by the 2022 World Cup mascot , namely the Al Barkah Grand Mosque and Patriot City Forest Park, Bekasi.
La’eeb’s presence was immediately welcomed by many people, starting from the workers who were taking their time and the people who were enjoying the atmosphere in the city park.
How did La’eeb have fun in Makassar and Bekasi? Here are the photos:
The British people continue to monitor the preparation of their favorite team ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. They hope Gareth Southgate’s side can surpass what they did four years ago in Russia.
At the 2018 World Cup mascot, the England national team advanced to the semifinals. Not only pundits, the media in King Charles III’s country also helped design the England national team’s starting XI at the biggest football party of the four years.
The journalists did not want to be left behind. They imagine how England’s starting XI should be at the 2022 World Cup mascot. Let’s see what their choices are.
Options: Pickford, Alexander-Arnold, Stones, Tomori, Chilwell, Bellingham, Rice, Mount, Foden, Kane, Sterling.
Southgate will not change his favorite 3-4-3 system. But England have the ideal material for a strong 4-3-3 formation. This is the formation that has led England to success in recent years.
Options: Pickford, Walker, Dier, Stones, Alexander-Arnold, Rice, Bellingham, Shaw, Foden, Kane, Sterling.
I’m surprised Trent Alexander-Arnold didn’t feature for England, especially during this international break. Prior to the draw against Germany, the Three Lions had not scored from open play in 450 minutes.
I think Alexander-Arnold is the most creative English player. The inclusion of Luke Shaw may be a bit controversial, especially given his current form, but I’m sure he’s doing well for England.
I like the balance in midfield because there’s Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham. Rice can protect the defence, while Bellingham has the quality of a box-to-box role.
Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling are England’s best players. Both are a threat to the opponent.
Options: Pickford, Stones, Dier, Tomori, James, Rice, Bellingham, Chilwell, Foden, Kane, Sterling.
In terms of the line-up, I don’t think Southgate was wrong. If you use 3-4-3, the midfield combination should be Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham.
Both are better than Jordan Henderson and Calvin Phillips. Three defenders Stones, Eric Dier, and Fikayo Tomori seem worthy of being a starter. Likewise on the front line, I think there is no problem.
Options: Pickford, James, Stones, Tomori, Shaw, Rice, Bellingham, Mountain, Saka, Kane, Sterling.
I think England look effective attacking with five players at the heart of defence. I chose James and Shaw as full-backs because of their physicality and speed in the overlap.
Maguire couldn’t possibly do that. Saka and Sterling supported Kane up front. Kane becomes more free to control the ball in a wider opponent area.
Opsi : Pickford, Walker, Stones, Dier, Trippier, Bellingham, Rice, Alexander-Arnold, Foden, Saka, Kane.
Jordan Pickford started because of his experience, while no England goalkeeper has been able to beat him.
On the intimacy and chemistry side, I would have Kyle Walker, John Stones, Eric Dier and Kieran Trippier as a back four. Two of them are teammates at the club. .
Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice are ideal defensive midfielders as they can move up and down effectively.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is more useful for offense than defense. That ability, I put him as a wing midfielder who played with Phil Foden and Bukayo Saka.
As a lone striker, there is no doubt the winner of the 2018 World Cup Golden Boot, Harry Kane.
Options: Pickford, Alexander-Arnold, Stones, Tomori, Chilwell, Rice, Bellingham, Foden, Saka, Kane, Sterling
Alexander-Arnold needs to be a starter for England. He is the most technically gifted footballer.
All the names in the starting XI are players who are qualified in their respective lines.
Options: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Tomori; Alexander-Arnold, Rice, Bellingham, Chilwell, Saka, Kane, Foden.
Nick Pope and Aaron Ramsdale haven’t done enough to replace Jordan Pickford. England’s weakness at the moment is defence.
This is a tough homework for the coaching team.
England will play a 3-4-3 formation. Harry Maguire will most likely not get enough playing time. There are still better defenders than the Manchester United defender.
Options: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Tomori, Shaw, Rice, Bellingham, Sterling, Foden, Grealish, Kane.
Bellingham is in fine form for Borussia Dortmund and this could be his breakthrough tournament for England. I also prefer Tomori over Maguire.
That’s considering how impressive he was for AC Milan. Meanwhile, Maguire, is still fighting for more playing time at United.
