A toppartij in the own Brazilian league between Fluminense and Santos who barely 5887 paying spectators results in place of 60,000. Or the museum of the football association in Barra da Tijuca (Rio de Janeiro) that a new new record left to record with 507 persons, a first since the opening of the imposing building in march 2014. It is clear that after the tough 1-1 opener of the Divine Canaries against Switzerland the attention for a while not too much to the troops of coach Tite and star player Neymar Jr. will be spend in the South American voetbalgekke country.

Fortunately, there is still Marcelo for the good humour and cheerfulness. The thirty years ‘ linkerverdediger of Real Madrid, present in the hierarchy, all rose to captain, was in the meantime a small media star. But Tite has also jealousy within the theatre group of the five-time world cup final winner, he wants to be in Russia rotatieprincipe hold and, therefore, with Thiago Silva as a captain to start against Costa Rica. That hurt Marcelo.

The use, however, remains an outsider. A macho, always changing hairstyle, that two haarstilisten took to Russia and a larger entourage in his wake than Neymar Jr. Also his immediate family is not far away. The trainingsbeelden with his son via the social media already widely spread.

“Our coach changed the atmosphere within the national team,” says offensive targeted full-which since 2007 is released for the Royal and his trophy case is already well-complemented. ‘Nowadays everything is easier. We understand his method very well, only the harmony must still return. That the results will soon show.’

Dual band

Serbia versus Switzerland will be an interesting confrontation to follow, due to the fact that multiple players have a connection with both countries. So were the Serbs, Milos Veljkovic (Basel) and Aleksander Prijovic (Sankt Gallen) born in Switzerland, and they came in their adolescence out for the national jongerenelftallen.

Also at the Schweizer Nati, there are many pros with a link in the former Yugoslavia. When Xherdan Shaqiri about a month ago on his Instagramaccount a photo set with two shoes, one with the Swiss flag and the other with the Kosovar flag, was that action in Serbia are perceived as pure provocation. So, it is clear that, especially in Albania and Kosovo this duel for swell. The former population considers Granit Xhaka, Xherdan Shaqiri, Valon Behrami and Blerim Dzemaili as defectors, by their Albanian roots.

The war in Kosovo in 1998/99 beat clearly deep wounds in the region, for many Kosovar Albanians fled then to Switzerland. “I am from Bosnia. My father is Montenegrijn, my mom Serbian’, responds the Serbian coach Mladen Krstajic. ‘That nationality for me is not relevant. I know only that Switzerland is a very good team, and extremely multicultural. Nothing more or nothing less.’

In the ban

England and Germany are in the spell of the women who are on tv report of the world cup. Especially by the many negative reactions on Twitter. After Japan-Colombia received ZDF-commentator, Claudia Neumann , the full load, due to an error: they had said that YuyaOsako at FSV Mainz 05 to play, while the striker is under contract is at degradant 1. FC Köln. Of me she the corridor, mop in broadcasting’, as echoed in a negative response.

‘What has Claudia done, goes beyond all boundaries’, claimed her boss, Thomas Fuhrmann opposite Mirror Online. “Some men run all the way through as a woman comment at a mannenduel.’

Controversy also came at the BBC, when Vicki Sparks with direct report debuted in Portugal-Morocco. Ex-international John Terry (Aston Villa) made via Instagram, announced that he was forced to duel without sound. The first criticism is removed the defender quickly the movie. Terry claimed that his tv suddenly ‘broken’. Unfortunately, that attitude and that insipid defence.
