Goalkeepers who have made grave mistakes at major tournament finals

5)Oliver Kahn: Germany 0-2 Brazil – 2002 World Cup Final The German shotstopper was one of its kind back in his playing days. Having virtually carried the Germans to the final on his own, Kahn had been a rock at the back. Deservedly, Kahn was going to receive the Lev Yashvin award for the best goalkeeper of the tournament having conceded a solitary goal until the 66th minute of the final, when a rampant shot from Rivaldo was only pushed right into the path of Ronaldo by the legendary Bayern…

Portugal’s top 5 players at the world cup 2018

5) Pepe The defender put an end to what had been a remarkable career with Real Madrid last summer, joining Besiktas. While his departure did not necessarily end on good terms, Pepe will always be remembered for his aggression and the heart he put in the games for Real Madrid. Now 35, the World Cup is likely to be Pepe’s last participation in a major tournament. He will be keen to leave a mark on it. 4) William Carvalho Sitting in front of the defenders, Carvalho is an old school…

Belgium’s top 5 players at the fifa world cup 2018

5) Thibaut Courtois The shotstopper has already seen a lot in his young career having featured for Atletico, where he unexpectedly won the La Liga title, lost the Champions league final and came back to Chelsea, where he has since won 2 league titles under 2 different managers. The past season for Courtois was Chelsea’s season in a nutshell, marred by inconsistency. For Courtois, talks of a transfer have been ongoing for a while and might just turn out to be true. The World Cup, in such a case, will…

England’s top 5 players at the world cup 2018

  Harry Kane: Harry Kane is one of the best strikers in football right now, and the English forward is also going to lead his nation at the World Cup. He has had another excellent campaign and has scored 30+ league goals. A tall, powerful, and pacey striker, Kane is a match winner and is not only lethal inside the box, he can pull off few stunners from outside the box. Kane represents England’s direct football approach and has the hunger to be the best. This may not be England’s…

Argentina’s top 5 players at the FIFA World Cup 2018

5) Nicolas Otamendi After a more than disappointing start to his Manchester City career, Otamendi looked set to be shipped out of the Etihad this summer. However, Guardiola has revolutionised the defender, who was easily one of the best players in the Premier league last season. The defender was ever-present in the starting XI as City raced to a record 100 point season. Barring a few off games, Otamendi was mostly proactive for City. The Argentinian fans will be hoping that Otamendi carries his fine form into the World Cup…

Footballers who are paid more than they deserve

  OusmanneDembele (£220,000/week) The French sensation is a prodigy, and Barcelona has acquired his services, but he didn’t come cheap. With a deal worth over 100 million euros Dembele’s career was blighted by injuries, but he came around and finished the season on a high, but he is being paid £220,000/week, which is a bit too much if you consider Iniesta who is being paid 60,000 pounds less than him. Dembele will surely be the man to look out for in the future, but paying such an exorbitant price for…

Football clubs who could sign Arsene Wenger

France (National Team): The French squad was unlucky to not win the Euros a couple of years back and with the squad they have they would be inching to achieve success in the World Cup. Didier Deschamps has to do well in Russia this year if he is to keep his place. With a lot of brilliant young talents at France’s disposal, an experienced character is needed to manage them if Deschamps fails and who better than Arsene Wenger when it comes to handle French players. Chinese Super League: The…

The least used forwards by top teams this 2018 football season

Fernando Llorente (Tottenham Hotspur): Llorente was a highly valued forward in the La Liga when he played with Athletic Bilbao. He joined Spurs this season from Swansea after being impressive with the Swans. Unfortunately for him, Harry Kane has been once again unstoppable and even when Kane has been injured, Son is normally preferred to take his place. He surely deserves to get more game time but it is difficult to achieve that at Spurs right now. Sandro Wagner (Bayern Munich): Wagner joined Bayern Munich in January this season from…

Footballers with most assists in European football this season

Footballers with most assists in European football this season 5) Leroy Sane (Manchester City) 11 assists in 25 games The German has stood up this season for the Citizens after taking his time last season to settle in the English league. This season has been another story. Sane has become City’s first choice left winger and has formed a fantastic trio with Sterling and Aguero. Given his tender age, Sane’s figures have been appalling. With 11 assists and 12 goals, Sane is one of the first on Pep Guardiola’s starting…

Footballers who are always the victim of social media trolls

Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid): The great Portuguese attacker is one of the best players currently in the world. Given the responsibilities he carries, it is very likely that critics and banter come his way too. Ronaldo struggled in the first half of the season especially in front of the goal when he went through a dry spell. But that was a phase which he has put behind and since then has been involved in goals more than often. In the Champions League, he has scored 12 goals in 8 games…
