This year, the army under Juergen Klopp is expected to win the world championship. By the German captain force brought to Qatar almost full of powerful heroes like Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Van Dijk or goalkeeper Alisson.
In the list of 23 players for Liverpool’s FIFA Club World Cup 2019, only two unfortunate absences are the case of central midfielder Fabinho and midfielder Joel Matip. Neither of these two players recovered from the injury before the day of closing forces.
On social networks, many fans celebrated the battle against Liverpool’s history, but still sympathized with the star Lionel Messi when receiving a humiliating defeat. Going up and down spectacularly at Anfield after losing 0-3 to Barcelona in the first leg, Liverpool deserved a ticket to the 2018/19 Champions League final with a score of 4-3 after the semi-final.
Many readers did not hide their admiration for Juergen Klopp’s victory. A fan commented: “Great Liverpool! People who work hard and have faith can make such a great thing! Not many teams score 4 goals against Barca but don’t lose any goals. . Happy The Kop! The European giant is back to great!”.
In addition to the joys for football fans who support the UK representative, many also expressed sympathy for the defeat that Messi must receive. On social networks, accounts send messages to comfort La Liga champions.
A fan wrote: “No one can rely on a player in a team game! Football is a game of 11 people, not just anyone. Despite losing, Messi is still the best player in the world that we being watched and Ronaldo too.
“Liverpool have played an incredible game, and Messi is still a human being, he is not a machine. Barca cannot win when relying on one person,” he said. In the first leg at the Camp Nou, Messi shined with a double to help Barca dominate with a 3-goal margin against Liverpool.
However, when marching to Anfield, the Argentine superstar alone was not enough to shoulder Barca’s collective performance. He again received bitter defeat in the knockout round of the European Cup and missed an appointment with the championship trophy for the past 4 years.
“You can celebrate the return to Liverpool, but don’t turn into a fool by trying to mock Messi. Congratulations to Klopp’s teachers in peace, such fun is enough. No need to say harsh words to More fun, “said by another.
If he continues to flourish to help Tottenham rise to the Champions League, Son Heung Min can absolutely challenge Messi and a host of other superstars in the Golden Ball race. Son Heung Min is the most mentioned name in the victory against Man City to Tottenham’s Champions League semi-final with 3 goals after two quarter-finals. Remarkably, he made a miracle without the top scorer Harry Kane due to injury and the burdensome burden on the Korean star.
The 26-year-old is on his way to becoming the star of big matches. This statement not only came from the Champions League quarter-finals but also Son Heung Min’s performances during the 2018/19 season.
After 42 matches in all arenas, the 26-year-old striker scored 20 goals – only one goal in the 2017/18 season. Remarkably, eight goals were made by the 26-year-old star in six Harry Kane games. Before Man City, Son Heung Min also shone when Tottenham clashed with Dortmund, Arsenal and Chelsea.
Even more opinions suggest that he overcame Park Ji Sung sunbae to become the greatest Asian player in history. This view is not without reason. With 12 goals, Son has become the Asian player to score the most goals in Europe’s No. 1 club arena. Previously, he also defeated the legendary juniors to become the most prolific Asian player in Premier League history (42 goals).
Although he has yet to win a noble collective title, Son Heung Min is completely superior to Park Ji Sung in terms of his personal role with the management club. In the press, Mauricio Pochettino confirmed that Son Heung Min deserves to stand alongside the rivals Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool) or Raheem Sterling (Man City) in the race to win the title “Premier League Player of the Year”. But the ambition of the Korean star is probably even further: the Golden Ball.
The opener in the match against Ajax helped Real striker Karim Benzema draw a memorable milestone in the Champions League. Accordingly, Benzema became the fourth player in history to score 60 goals in the Champions League. This goal was also scored by the French striker in the 60th minute of the match after an extremely clever and constructive ball of Vinicius.
Three players on Benzema in this record are Raul Gonzalez (71 goals), Lionel Messi (106 goals) and Cristiano Ronaldo (121 goals). In order to achieve this milestone, Benzema needed 110 matches in the Champions League.
After the previous season struggling, Benzema is returning to himself this season and becoming extremely sharp in 2019 with 8 goals, equal to Messi’s performance. In the past, Benzema was very charming when facing Ajax. The French striker took part in 8 goals (scoring 4 goals, assisting 4 goals) in 6 confrontations with Ajax, the most of his opponents in the Champions League.
Meanwhile, with an assist for Benzema to score, Vinicius Jr. has become Real’s leading creation on all fronts this season with 8 times. Elsewhere, despite having a 600th anniversary match against Real but with a yellow card to receive in the 89th minute, midfielder Sergio Ramos became the player to receive the most yellow cards in Champions League history with 38 times.
In 2004, Benzema and France U-17 team won the European U-17 championship trophy. In 2006, Benzema was summoned for the first time by head coach Raymond Domenech to the French national football team, when he was only 18 years old. In the first match for the team in March 2007, Benzema scored the only goal of the match against Austria after just 8 minutes into the field. His second goal came in the French match 6-0 Faroe Islands.
Euro 2008 is an opportunity for this striker to shine when he is brought into the official squad by coach Raymond Domenech. In the first match against Romania, Benzema partnered with Nicolas Anelka but they both played very personal but did not cooperate with each other so they were replaced in the second half. but still failed to find a goal and Benzema left Euro 2008 without scoring. On May 13, 2010, Benzema was not included in the preliminary list of 30 French players to attend the 2010 World Cup due to the loss of form and disagreement with Domenech.
