England dreaming of since the final victory of 1966 of new success on a large final tournament. Now is there especially to captain Harry Kane (24) looked to the disgrace of the world cup 2014 (group stage), and the european CHAMPIONSHIPS in 2016 (2-1 loss against Iceland in the eighth-finals) right to convert. The Tottenhamaanvaller is not only the star in the left of head coach Gareth Southgate, especially, is counting on his impact and doelpuntenproductie to far and for rehabilitation to ensure.

‘Harry is a role model with leadership qualities”, said Southgate in may with the appointment of Kane as captain. “We will especially that last need, because who to the number of international matches closely, you will notice that we are the least experienced.” Kane, with the Spurs last season, good for 41 goals in 48 official matches, knows his imperative command. “The hold up of the world cup transcends everything. Here we go.”


Big, bigger, Ibrahimovic: so own and Zlatan (36) fifteen years is the superstar of the Swedish national team. Two years ago, in the disappointing last place in the group stage of the european CHAMPIONSHIPS in France and without a goal was the currently for LA Galaxy general attacker enough to after 116 caps and 62 goals to stop as international. But the extravagant voetbalprof could the last couple of years and decides to regularly have sex to steer it in the direction of national coach Janne Andersson.

In the meantime, they both settled down in Russia. Andersson with the intention to profit against South Korea in the next round quickly to catch up with a team on the basis of discipline and efficiency through mainly countervoetbal, showman Zlatan as a showcase for a kredietkaartenfirma and first criticaster. We are curious who will be the highest word will perform.


At this world CHAMPIONSHIPS in Russia is the expectation that the final round will be closed with a profit of 2.8 billion dollars for the wereldvoetbalbond FIFA. In the German weekly Der Spiegel, they made an overview of the editions since 2002 and they found that the cow of increasingly better run for president Gianni Infantino and co.

Sixteen years ago, it generated the combination of Japan & South Korea are still $ 2.3 billion, followed by 2,5 (Germany 2006), 2,4 (South Africa 2010) and 2.6 (Brazil 2014). But especially financially attractive to be the next world cup. At Qatar 2022 reads the forecast $ 3.9 billion, for the trio Canada-USA-Mexico in 2026, even 11 billion dollars.

That the losing candidate-organizer Morocco, but a 5 billion euro profit could guarantee, is likely to be in the mood not to have played a role. That is our suspicion.
