Switzerland 1:0 Cameroon Breel Embolo, who was born in Cameroon, scored the only goal in the match between Switzerland and Cameroon qualifiers. After a good first half, Cameroon died down and failed to score again. The match could have ended 2:0 if not for a miraculous save by Jean-Charles Castelletto.
Uruguay 0:0 South Korea. The first games are not over yet, as the group stage has already seen four scoreless games. The latest between Uruguay and South Korea on Thursday afternoon. Often Celeste were rough and tight in defence, but soulless in front of goal. It’s not much better for the Koreans, despite having long-time obscure Tottenham star Son Heung-Min in charge. Due to the multiple fractures on his face, the protective mask he wore did not make him the superhero he was expected to be.
Portugal 3-2 Ghana. We were a little bored by game time. Then things got crazy between Portugal and Ghana. The two countries ended the match with 3 goals to 2. The Black Stars will be able to hold some regrets as the draw looked within reach. But in football, one goal is enough to make a difference. For example, he became the only player to score in five different World Cups (2006-2022) by scoring a penalty shot by Cristiano Ronaldo, who was the first in the game. Baleza.
Brazil 2:0 Serbia. Arriving in Qatar as favourites, the Seleção confirmed the expectations: he attacked Serbia with his talent, although he resisted for an hour until he saved Richarlison’s strike. The Brazilian centre-forward first scored a volley, then a memorable acrobatic control-scissors sequence was the best goal of the first week of the competition. A shadow on the yellow and green board, however: Neymar was out injured and suffered a sprain.
Qatar was eliminated from “their” World Cup
Qatar 1, Senegal 3, and in the case of the host nation, it was a qualifier. In the last match of the second day of Group A, Netherlands and Ecuador ended with a draw and definitely pushed the Qataris out of their world. Former African champions Senegal were not in the least bit scared against the Qataris, who showed more game than soup in the opening match. With this fresh first-round loss to Boulaye Dia before Famara Diedhiou and Marseille’s Bamba Dieng nailed the scoreboard, Qatar can beat the Netherlands in their final group match. , it won’t change anything.
Neymar injured, ankle reactivated
The evening could have been perfect for Brazil, who were coming off a successful game against Serbia, but Neymar left the field injured with a swollen right ankle. The first verdict is definitive: the star of Paris Saint-Germain is the victim of a sprain. “We need to wait 24 to 48 hours for a new assessment” The seriousness of this injury, Brazilian doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, announced after the meeting. After a short time, the football player entered the mixed zone without answering the journalists’ questions, and it is likely that his daily development will dominate the selection news. “We are sure Neymar will play again in this World Cup”, however, the coach started Tite in a firm tone. Not sure: Ney already suffered the same ankle sprain in 2019 that forced him to sit out the Copa America.
“One Love” bandage is sold
Gag imitated by German players, ministers wearing One Love bandages in the stands…: In the middle of the World Cup, FIFA faces a scattered revolt from several European federations over the famous fabric and what it stands for. As an unexpected result of the controversy, the maker of the wristbands in question, based in Utrecht, Netherlands, said it was out of stock after 10,000 were shipped, mostly over the past two weeks. “The big boom actually came with the World Cup and I’m sure of the FIFA statement.” Badge Direct BV CEO Roland Heerkens was quoted as saying by Reuters not to allow them to be captains on the field. These wristbands were launched in 2020 during an inclusive campaign launched by the Dutch football federation (Royal Dutch Football Association, KNVB) without meeting today’s repercussions. Demand comes from all over the world, “To the European Parliament, which ordered 500 units”Roland Heerkens said.
English supporters were invited not to appear as Crusaders
Crusaders, you know… After the armbands, it was the turn of some English fans to dress up in front of the authorities. In videos circulating online, several British fans are seen being turned away by security officials at the entrance to the England-Iran match. The fans in question wore chain mail, along with the St. George’s Cross, England’s emblem… also referring to the Crusaders who participated in Christian expeditions from the West that came to the region under Muslim influence. Conquering Jerusalem. Not the best taste in Qatar. A spokesman for inclusive body Kick It Out has warned England fans not to wear inappropriate clothing. “It may not be welcome in Qatar and other Islamic countries”. The association also urges people to follow “The Foreign Office issued travel advice ahead of the tournament. Fans should be familiar with local customs and we invite fans to take this approach.”. We’ll see what happens when the Three Lions take on the USA on Thursday.
The European Parliament called on FIFA to compensate the families of the dead workers
This is stated in the resolution adopted by the European Parliament on Thursday regarding the situation of human rights in Qatar “To compensate FIFA for all victims of preparation for the World Cup”. Members of the European Parliament in the published press release “I regret the death and many injuries of thousands of migrant workers, mainly in the construction sector, who helped the country prepare for the tournament.”. They believe, for example, that there will be corruption “endemic, systemic and deep-rooted”, “He seriously hit the image and integrity of world football” awarding the competition to Qatar.
picture of the day
Minimal celebration for Switzerland striker Breel Embolo on Thursday, the only scorer for Nati against Cameroon. Could it be otherwise for the native of Cameroon’s capital, Yaounde, who maintains strong ties to his native land? Embolo, who came to Basel at the age of 6, opted for the Swiss selection in 2015. We can imagine the conflicting feelings he must have felt while rooting for his team. Hence this sober reaction.
Switzerland-Cameroon, hell for the color blind
For a number of viewers, Thursday’s game between Switzerland and Cameroon was painful to watch. It is not about the level of the game, but about the color of the jerseys. The two teams played in their basic uniforms, i.e. red shirts and shorts for Switzerland and green for Cameroon. A contrast that does not allow people with color blindness to follow the meeting properly. “We would like to know how the red/green color combination was allowed for the Switzerland-Cameroon game and why one team did not change their uniforms at half-time according to the regulations?” Kathryn Albany-Ward, founder of Color Blind Awareness, objects. Even if Fifa doesn’t enforce their rules, you’d think so to ensure that national teams don’t harm their players and teams. because Color blindness affects one in 12 men and one in 200 women worldwide. According to research by Color Blind Awareness, 6% of elite male players are color blind, meaning on average there is at least one player on the Swiss side and one on the Cameroonian side. This is what the FIFA uniform rules say “The colors of the uniforms worn by the two teams participating in a particular match should provide sufficient contrast to allow the referees, the players, […] and to clearly distinguish viewers (including, where possible, those with color vision impairments). […]both teams”.
sentence of the day
“Take the phone, you can take a picture with it – hein – if you want!”
It was eagerly awaited as Saudi Arabia managed to turn the tide against Argentina on Tuesday. The video of Faucons Verts coach Hervé Renard’s non-stop chat has finally been released. We can look at the coach Engage in a giant harangue in English with a French accent. Speaking to one of his players, whom he considered too passive when marking Messi, Renard told him, for example, “Take a phone and take a picture with it”. The rest are saved.
A long way around the huge building in the shape of a cruise ship with workers busy around it. In the distance, giant slides under construction surrounded by cranes. Then the entrance to the hastily repaired car park, still smelling of fresh tar, is guarded by four security guards under the blazing sun. It is in these strange circumstances, north of Doha and about ten kilometers from the nearest metro station, that Qatar has chosen to set up 1,800 tents as the World Cup approaches to host fans from around the world. Marketed as luxury accommodation for €200 a night, the “fan village” is far from satisfying fans who prefer to shorten their stay. Report of our special correspondent.
The World Cup was seen from Senegal
Senegal star Sadio Mane’s injury row will vampirize the debate as the World Cup kicks off, taking over a number of European countries. As the country plays its second game against Qatar this Friday, our correspondent in Dakar talks about this atmosphere, which contrasts with the debate in Europe. Officially, no Senegalese national would die on Qatari construction sites. Working conditions for workers in the country are also questionable, especially at the construction sites of the new city of Diamniadio, President Macky Sall’s flagship project to decongest Dakar. “We are far from French issues”, summarizes Oumar Diallo, passed in the Sicap-Baobab area, streamed a shirt with the name of captain Kalidou Koulibaly on the back. Discussions in large parts of the Dakar are mostly about how to reorganize the team in Sadio Mane’s absence.
