Osasuna backed his defensive line several meters and the white team began to handle the leather and considerably lower the number of cons of the opponent. Luckily it did not take long to tie, in the 33rd minute, through Isco, that a rejection was found within the area to fly to the long stick of Herrera. Five minutes later it was Sergio Ramos who led his team head-on after a great assist from Casemiro. Madrid liked and exhibited its punch in the air game.

Extra life for the generation of Gabriel Jesús, Lautaro, Dembélé …

first_imgRicharlisonWith only three seasons in England, the Everton striker has become one of the Premier’s best attackers and one of the most sought-after youth. In 111 matches between league and cup competitions, has scored 31 goals and distributed 11 assists. These numbers are very meritorious, since his career in England is divided between Watford and Everton, clubs that are not part of the so-called ‘big-six’.Since his arrival at the “toffees”, he has not stopped growing. In his first season, under Marco Silva’s orders, he scored 13 goals, and this season he has already 10. But it is not only his scoring records that make him special, he is a born worker. Proof of this is that He recovers an average of 2.63 balls per game, one of the best forwards in this aspect of the five major leagues.. Bruno GuimarãesDuring the last two years it has been one of the great promises of the Brasileirão, the Brazilian first division. His performance with Atlético Paranaense, where he won a South American Cup, made Atlético de Madrid about to get their services. However, the athletic board did not consider his signing to be a priority and ended up landing the past winter market at Rudi García’s Olympique de Lyon.Guimarães is a very physical defensive midfielder, with good ball treatment and a great ability to steal balls. Since his arrival in France he has not stopped surprising. The fact of having to compete in the South American Pre-Olympic, where it was a key piece to achieve the classification of Brazil for Tokyo, made his debut in France delayed. FranceOusmane DembéléAt 20, the Frenchman became the second most expensive signing in the history of FC Barcelona. The culé club was made in the summer of 2017 with one of the most promising players on the world scene at that time for an amount of 125 million euros. His 10 goals and 22 assists between all competitions in his first and only season at Borussia Dortmund They hinted that we were witnessing the birth of one of football’s dominators for years to come.But, since his signing for the azulgrana, the injuries have been fattened with him. The young French striker has been injured 504 days during his entire period in Barcelona or, what is the same, almost a year and a half of competition has been lost. 80 games that he has not been able to play in the last three seasons that mean that, for the moment, he has not been able to make the qualitative leap that was expected of him. Issa DiopFrance has recently become a gold mine in terms of large power plants. Issa Diop is on her way to join that group. The defender arrived at West Ham in the summer of 2018, after showing a high level throughout his three seasons at Toulouse.He is a central defender with an imposing physique, forceful to the cut and outstanding in the aerial game, both defensive and offensive (He has scored 13 goals in his professional career), which has made great teams look at him for the next season. Deschamps has it on his agenda for the absolute team, after going through all the inferiors of France and win an under-19 European by the way, in a team that also included Mbappé. With the ‘Rojita’ he has played two Euro Cups. Although in the first, in 2017, he had no role, he was a starter in all matches last summer, in a championship that would be awarded to Spain. Oyarzabal scored two goals, one of them in the semifinals, and gave the assistance with which Fabián would open the can in the final against Germany. Since June, he has gone to all the calls of the absolute team, where he has added two goals and an attendance in six games. A very promising career at the moment that lacks a participation in the Olympic Games.Carlos SolerHe debuted with Valencia in the First Division at the age of 19, led by Prandelli, in a match where he would face precisely Real de Mikel Oyarzabal. They did not coincide on the field, since his partner in the U21 team would be replaced minutes before his entry into the Valencian field. His next game with the first team would be a month later, with Voro already on the bench, with which he would settle as a starter.. Thereafter, he would only miss one league game that season.Today, He has accumulated 141 games, in which he has scored 11 goals and distributed 17 assists, reaching 11 Champions League matches in the last two seasons, marking teams such as Manchester United or Chelsea. In his record he has a Copa del Rey, the one won against FC Barcelona last season, and with an U21 Euro Cup, which he got that same summer. He has not yet made his debut with the national team, but he is expected to do so soon, since he has a great future ahead of him. Christopher NkunkuThe young French attacker arrived at RB Leipzig last summer, after four seasons at Paris Saint Germain, in which he played 78 matches. In the last two seasons he showed great qualities and great versatility, scoring nine goals and giving two assists, but internal competition at the most powerful club in his native country made him decide to pack. And the choice could not be more successful.With the German club he has played 33 matches, 22 of them as a starter, between all competitions, including a Champions League where they are already in the quarterfinals after eliminating the runner-up, José Mourinho’s Tottenham. With four goals and fourteen assists in the Bundesliga, is postulated as one of the French players whose evolution will have to be followed closely. BrazilGabriel JesusOne of the big stars on this list. Since coming to Manchester City in the 2017 winter market from Palmeiras, where he scored 17 goals in two seasons, has been uncovered as one of the best strikers in the world under the command of Pep Guardiola. In his three years as a citizen, he has managed to score 63 goals and 25 assists in 139 games, despite sharing a position with one of the Sky Blues legends, Sergio Agüero.Since debuting in 2016 with the Brazilian national team, Tite has used him in almost all calls. With the ‘canarinha’ he has already played 39 games, scoring 18 goals and giving 9 assists. His performance in the semifinals and final of the last Copa América, where he scored two goals and two assists, was key for Brazil to win the title.. Florian NeuhausHis key role in the promotion to Bundesliga of Fortuna Düsseldorf in the 2017/18 season, a team in which he was on loan from Borussia Mönchengladbach and where he scored 6 goals and gave 3 assists, made him worthy to debut in the German first division the following season with Dieter Hecking.His evolution throughout his two seasons with the ‘foals’, nickname with which Mönchengladbach is known, and already accumulate 8 goals and 13 assists. His great touch of the ball and his intelligence when it comes to finding the free spaces in Germany they have compared him to Thomas Müller. Although Löw has not yet called him up, he is expected to do so soon, as his future is hopeful. Despite having been able to play only 5 games, he has already given a good example of how far his level can go. His displays against Juventus in the Champions League or against Saint-Etienne in Ligue 1 have raised expectations for this midfielder., and they made Tite summon him for the qualifying matches for the World Cup in Qatar that Brazil had to play these weeks.ArgentinaLautaro MartinezAnother of the big names that the Tokyo Olympics would have missed if the rule hadn’t changed. The Inter Milan player is one of the most projected forwards in world football. He arrived at the Italian club in the summer of 2018, coming from the Argentine Racing Club, and In his first two seasons in Europe he has given an excellent performance, forming a lethal pair with Romelu Lukaku.With 66 games played in two years, Lautaro has scored 26 goals and distributed 5 assists, which means that he participates in a goal practically every two games with his club. This year he was one of the biggest names in the Champions League group stage, where he scored five goals in a group that faced Inter against Barcelona and Dortmund. This season he already has 17 goals between the League and the Champions, and is called to be one of the best strikers in the world for years to come. With Argentina, he has played 17 matches and has scored 9 goals. With only 74 games played at the Catalan club, his performance when he has been available has had hopeful moments. With 41 goals and 44 assists throughout his career, Dembélé is yet to explode. With the French national team, he already has 21 games and, if injuries allow it, it could be important in the 2021 Euro Cup.Theo HernándezAfter establishing himself as one of the revelations of the 2016/17 season, where he left with Deportivo Alavés, Real Madrid was done with their services. However, his time at the white club has not been what was expected. In his first season as a white player, he only played 23 games, which led him to leave on loan to Real Sociedad, where he also did not finish. In fact, finished the league without even calling the last four games.However, his arrival in Milan has changed everything. The winger has returned to find himself and is already one of the best players of the season in Serie A. In 25 games between the League and the Cup, he has been able to score 6 goals and give 2 assists, again showing the punch that characterizes him. In December he stated that, If the French National Team calls him, with whom he refused to play the U-20 World Cup in 2017 for waiting for the call from Spain, he will attend, reason why it could have attended the Olympic Games if it had been disputed this year and it will be able to go next season. With Brazil, he has already played 19 matches, since he debuted in September 2018. In total, he registers six goals and four assists. Her goal against Peru in the final of the 2019 Copa América served to sentence the match and help the ‘canarinha’ lift the trophy.David neresThe young winger was one of the great surprises of the revelation team from last season in Europe, Ajax. In the 50 games he played, he scored 12 goals and gave 15 assists. Total, There are 35 goals and 34 assists which he accumulates in the more than 100 games he has played with the Dutch team. throughout the past four seasons.That great performance last season earned him a place in the Brazilian National Team for the Copa América, after having debuted only a few months earlier. Its lower performance this season has made it disappear from the last calls of Tite, but he is still a player to be reckoned with. GermanySuat SerdarAt 22 years old, Schalke midfielder has played 89 Bundesliga matches, and he has contested with the German team both the Champions League, where he played 7 of the 8 games his team played last season, as well as the Europa League, in his time at Mainz 05.Creative midfielder, stands out for his role as a great passer. This season he has been uncovered as a scorer, when taking 7 goals in the 18 games he has played in the Bundesliga, in a Schalke that is being the surprise of the season, after his poor campaign last year. He was one of the great names of the German U21 runner-up of the last U21 Euro Cup, where only Spain could separate them from the title. He has already played three games under Löw, although none as a starter. The postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, that will finally take place in 2021 by COVID-19It will not prevent a whole generation of footballers, among which there are great figures in world football, from representing their country. A priori, the postponement meant that next year only players born as of January 1, 1998 could go to the Olympics, and that all those born in 1997, and that in many cases have been key to achieving the classification of their respective countries, had to be left out. However, FIFA has broken the rule in view of exceptional circumstances and allows the tournament to no longer be Under-23, but Under-24.SpainMikel OyarzabalAt 23 years old, the young striker from Eibartarra has 184 matches with Real Sociedad, since he debuted at Ciutat de Valencia on October 25, 2015. In that match, Oyarzabal entered with five minutes to go, replacing Carlos Vela, the Txuri-Urdin star at the time. Four and a half years later it has become a banner for the Basque club, coming to wear the captain’s armband in recent months due to Illarramendi’s injury. 48 goals and 30 assists with the realistic club guarantee the Spanish player with the most projection of those born in 1997.Just a few months after his debut in the First Division, Vicente del Bosque gave him the opportunity to debut with the Spanish National Team jersey in a friendly match against Bosnia-Herzegovina. From 2017 until last summer, Oyarzabal did not miss a single call with the sub-21, from the hand of Albert Celades, first, and Luis De la Fuente, later.last_img read more

I was surprised that we could get over the situation with Burundi in the semis and hopefully we can do that again,” the coach said.Midfielder Whyvonne Isuza, scorer of the lone goal against Burundi has called on his teammates to ensure they get the job done by bringing the title home.Harambee Stars midfielder Whyvonne Isuza during the 2017 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup.

We are at home and that should be an advantage to us. We have to give the fans something to smile about,” the AFC Leopards midfielder noted.Ahead of the tie, Put will be without striker Massoud Juma who has failed to recover from an ankle injury while Musa Mohammed and Vincent Oburu, both who limped off the semi-final against Burundi have to wait for late fitness tests.But Put sees this as an advantage to see other players especially with Duncan Otieno having impressed when he came on for Mohammed, despite being a midfielder.“This tournament gives me a chance to look at all the players and I see this as an opportunity for me and other players to show what they can do. I hope they take the chance,” the coach said.Kenya will be playing its 13th CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup final. Of the 13 they have played, they have won six, the last being in 2013 when the tournament was hosted in Nairobi. Prior to that, the last time they won was in 2002.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Harambee Stars head coach Paul Put ponders on the touchline during the 2017 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup.
