Biggest Piss In World Cup History

Uruguay against South Korea in Group H of the World Cup in Qatar.

Two-time tournament winners La Celeste are seen as the dark horse this year, with Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez in fine form, while veteran forwards Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani will be looking for the last hurray.

Federico Valverde is perhaps more important than anyone else, and the Real Madrid midfielder will be key to dictate the tempo against South Korea. Son Heung-min is hoping to play despite suffering a facial fracture in preparation for the tournament while playing for Tottenham in the Champions League, meaning he will be wearing a mask – at least during the group stage.

Both sides will be confident that they can not only qualify but also finish top of a wide-open group that also includes Ghana and Portugal.

Hope it’s crackers. Son met Diego Godin for a handshake. The veteran defender is returning for his fourth World Cup, at the age of 36.

Luis Suarez could also make history with a goal today, and equal Uruguay’s record if he scores his eighth World Cup goal.

Son Heung-min: South Korea’s biggest football export still leads despite injury fears

Son Heung-min’s early season goal drought has raised questions about the pre-World Cup performance of the South Korean Tottenham Hotspur forward, who is fit and shooting after a facial fracture.

Son, the South Korean talisman striker, has undergone surgery to stabilize a fracture around his left eye he suffered playing for Tottenham against Olympique de Marseille, which has cast his World Cup participation in doubt.

But for months it was its completion that had fans worried.

After finishing as joint top scorer in the Premier League last term, the 30-year-old went eight games in all competitions without scoring to raise fears that his golden touch had left him with time running out for kick-off in Qatar.

Uruguay perfect World Cup underdogs with Federico Valverde at the heart of their regeneration

“The original World Cup winner, and indeed the host, Uruguay has been part of international folklore for as long as that version of the game has existed.

“Unlike some other people from that part of the world, La Celeste’s story is not always about romance and achievement, being giants and being admired, their names are woven into the fabric of World Cups as often as they want them to be.

“South America’s tenth largest country by population went from myth to disappearance on the global stage in less than three decades.

“Between 1978 and 1998 they qualified only twice and tasted victory only once. It has been a long journey for the Sky Blue team, but a golden generation of players was overseen and developed by the legendary Oscar Tabarez and now, under the guidance of Diego Alonso, they are showing that generational teams don’t have to. limited to one generation only.

“Uruguay are a force to be reckoned with in Qatar at the World Cup, a team with players who know their part, proven goalscorers and a commitment to face the odds and, most importantly, a handful of elite talent playing near the top of their game.”

Breel Embolo got Switzerland off to a perfect World Cup start to punish profligate Cameroon

Muted goal celebrations are not a common sight in international football, but with an increasingly globalized world came an increasingly globalized World Cup, and so too the conflicting emotions of Swiss match winner Breel Embolo.

Born in Yaoundé before emigrating to France when he was five years old, Embolo did not celebrate the sharp, purposeful finish that helped overcome Cameroon in this tight Group G opener, instead raising his hand in apology. Several of his team-mates ran to celebrate assists with Xherdan Shaqiri instead.

They understand, after all. Much of Murat Yakin’s squad is dual nationality, with the Balkan contingent enjoying a rematch of their fiery 2018 meeting with Serbia in the final group game. That could be crucial to their hopes of reaching the last 16, with Brazil now next, but to pick up all three points here is a promising start.

Switzerland will have to emulate Arsenal to unlock Granit Xhaka after Cameroon win

“In some ways, the Swiss World Cup got off to the perfect start with a 1-0 win over Cameroon. Going into their second game against Brazil, Switzerland have three points on the table and do not need a shock victory over the pre-tournament favorites to maintain their hopes of qualifying.

“It was a tough victory though, with Cameroon being the better team in the first half and having the misfortune not to go ahead at half-time, before their European opponents scored through Cameroon-born Breel Embolo early in the second half and then killed off the game. game.

“Nobody can legitimately argue that the Swiss attack is on all cylinders but the answer to unlocking their potential is already in their ranks and using the name Granit Xhaka. The captain won his 107th appearance, and has been a driving force since making his debut in 2011, as evidenced by playing every minute of his recent Nations League campaign, but it is time to revamp his role in the team to turn them into legitimate contenders. . ”
