‘I don’t mind players having sex the night before matches but I draw the line at orgies,’ said Spain coach Luis Enrique in his latest streaming to fans from Qatar.
The Spain manager also admitted he would love to have moved to England in his playing days refueling rumours that he’ll end up coaching in the Premier League one day.
The unconventional coach was speaking on Twitch, fulfilling his promise to fans to keep streaming for as long as Spain are in the World Cup.
Britons will enjoy a festival of World Cup football today as Wales and England both play crunch matches that coincide with payday for millions with bosses set to let staff watch the matches or face a slew of sickies.
The Welsh could make history this morning if they beat Iran with England set to qualify for the knock out stages if they defeat the USA in the big match at 7pm tonight.
Millions of Britons will watch the two matches today with many schoolchildren in Wales given a break from lessons to watch Gareth Bale and his teammates play at 10am.
It isn’t a World Cup without a Neymar injury to crack up anxiety levels in Brazil.
He damaged his back in 2014 and broke a foot ahead of 2018 and on Thursday night he limped out of Doha’s Lusail Stadium with a strapping applied to his right ankle following a collision in the second half of a 2-0 win against Serbia.
He tried to continue before he was replaced by Antony in the 80th minute, and was in tears as he received medical treatment on the bench, pulling his shirt over his head.
Cristiano Ronaldo made history again on Thursday night then declared he has closed the book forever on his relationship with Manchester United.
The 37-year-old started the week by mutually agreeing to terminate his contract at Old Trafford but he ended it by becoming the first man to score at five World Cups, his 65th minute penalty helping Portugal beat Ghana 3-2 at Stadium 974.
Ronaldo, who already has an offer to move to Saudi Arabia side Al Hilal, was named FIFA’s Player of the Match, which meant he had to attend the ensuing press conference. He stayed in the room for 132 seconds and answered one question but, for the first time, publicly addressed his situation.
The Football Association – along with a number of other European federations – did not attend a crunch pre-World Cup summit with FIFA at which the wearing of the now-banned One Love armband was discussed.
No representatives from the FA and three other nations were present when a UEFA Working Group on Human and Labour Rights delegation met with FIFA officials at their headquarters in Zurich on October 12, in a move that has raised eyebrows in Qatar.
Meanwhile, it has emerged England feared their opening match with Iran may have been stopped should Harry Kane have worn the anti-discrimination armband.
FIFA have not used one referee from a ‘OneLove nation’ at this World Cup, sparking accusations that officials including Michael Oliver and Anthony Taylor are being snubbed.
The highly-rated Premier League pair are among those still awaiting their first assignments, with Germany’s Daniel Siebert and Danny Makkelie of Hollaned also yet to officiate a game.
Seven nations put their names to last week’s statement about the banned OneLove armband. The associations of England, Wales, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands jointly criticised FIFA for threatening their captains with sporting sanctions on the eve of the tournament.
Good morning. Well, we have seen all the teams and a few notable sides – England, Spain and Brazil – have impressed while Germany and Argentina already find themselves teetering on the edge.
