Impressive statistics on Giroud’s header ability

Not a single Premier League striker has scored like Olivier Giroud from the day the Frenchman made his first official match in England’s No. 1 league.

Earlier this morning, Chelsea had a match with Aston Villa at home in round 16 of the Premier League. Unlike football prediction experts, the Blues have the advantage of playing at home, but still have to accept sharing points with visitors from Birmingham.

In this match, Olivier Giroud was the one who brought the opening goal for the Stamford Bridge team. In the 34th minute, starting from a cross from Ben Chiwell, the French striker had a very classy header into the near corner, making goalkeeper Martinez unstoppable. Unfortunately, the former Arsenal star’s efforts could not help Chelsea win 3 full points when El Ghazi scored to bring home a 1-1 draw for Aston Villa in the 50th minute.

With only 1 point in front of Aston Villa, Chelsea continued to sink into crisis when it was the fourth game that coach and coach Frank Lampard could not sing the triumphal song in the last 5 rounds. Before that, Chelsea disappointed live football viewers when they had a weak performance against Arsenal on Boxing Day (losing 1-3).

However, personally, this is still an excellent game for striker Olivier Giroud. With his strike last night, the 34-year-old general raised the total number of head-to-head goals he scored in the Premier League to 32 since he played his first match in the misty country in January 8, 2012.

From the milestone since the day Giroud moved to the Premier League, he is the King to score with the head of the tournament when there is no name that can match the 1m93 striker in this respect.

The fact that Giroud continued to open fire caused coach Frank Lampard to carefully consider whether he or Tammy Abraham will play at the spearhead of the team.

What caused coach Tuchel to be sacked by PSG?

According to many reputable sources, the reason PSG decided to fire coach Thomas Tuchel was not because of the team’s achievements but because of his controversial statements on Sport1 television.

That is not to mention that he is the one who made history for the Parc des Princes team when he led the home team to reach the Champions League final for the first time in history last season (losing 0-1 to Bayern Munich).

Immediately after that, there were many comments and different views on the true cause of this unbelievable ending for the former Dortmund captain. According to French media, the biggest reason why PSG PSG decided to “slash” Thomas Tuchel came from his controversial statements in an interview with German television channel Sport1 not long ago.

Specifically, Coach Tuchel has expressed the view of disregard for PSG and the Board of Directors of the Paris capital team, which is said to be indispensable for him. Any trust and respect for Tuchel is great.

In the interview on Sport1, Coach Tuchel once shared the following:

“We are only 90 minutes away from winning the Champions League for the first time in history. However, I never thought we deserved it. You can see that a Ligue 1 championship by comparison has never been as appreciated as a Bundesliga championship. I understand that the expectations on us are set too high”.

In addition, Mr. Tuchel also revealed a lot of information about PSG’s dressing room. He said that PSG is lucky to have big stars like Neymar or Mbappe, but these players do not appreciate the team’s discipline.

The opposite career of Ronaldo and Rooney after 10 years

After 10 years, Cristiano Ronaldo maintains the level of top player, while Wayne Rooney plays the role of manager of Derby County.

More than 10 years ago, Wayne Rooney had a turning point for his career when he replaced Cristiano Ronaldo as the MU leader. Currently, Rooney moves to the position of head coach of Derby County. At the age of 35, Rooney considered retiring to focus everything on the position of captain. Rooney asserted that this was a dream he cherished for a long time.

2010 was the year of failure for Cristiano Ronaldo, when Real Madrid went empty and Portugal soon stopped at the World Cup. Since then, CR7 has conquered a series of successes at the individual, club and team level. Ronaldo has 4 more Golden Ball titles, won 4 Champions League trophies and together with Portugal won the Euro 2016. At this time, Ronaldo is 35 years old, but maintains his top form in the Juventus shirt. CR7 has scored 16 goals in 13 appearances for Juventus this season.

10 years ago, Diego Forlan emerged after the 2010 World Cup. The Uruguayan striker scored 5 goals, led the home team to the semi-finals and received the title of 2010 World Cup Golden Ball. Currently, Forlan started his coaching career. He has led the Penarol club since December 2019, but was fired after a year.

Wesley Sneijder and Inter Milan won the treble in the 2009/10 season. Then, Sneijder with the Netherlands to the World Cup final in 2010, but fell before Spain. After 10 years, Sneijder retired from the field and did not follow a coaching career. Sneijder only occasionally appeared in television sports commentary programs.

Kaka has retired from the field since 2017. For the past three years, Kaka has spent time with his family and has no intention of returning football as a coach.

Lionel Messi is the owner of the 2010 Golden Ball title. This is a controversial achievement, because many fans think Andreas Iniesta or Sneijder deserves more. Over the past 10 years, Messi has maintained its form to create a two-way race with Ronaldo. So far, Messi has won 6 Golden Balls, reaping a series of titles at Barca.

Ronaldo faces the number 1 goal scorer in the planet (Part 2)

Ronaldo can completely score 900 goals, although it depends on the circumstances, not just his level.

Ronaldo has taken care of his body perfectly and it is wise to choose to play in Serie A, this is a tournament where the elderly strikers can still dominate, as it was not long ago Fabio Quagliarella. The striker who kicked for Sampdoria a year ago also won the Serie A top scorer at the age of 36, so Italy is the ideal environment for Ronaldo.

But injury is inevitable and Ronaldo at this age will be more likely to deal with a degenerative knee, although he has been more successful than many other players in avoiding serious injuries through smart play. good nutrition. Zlatan Ibrahimovic suffered severe pain when he wore the MU shirt in the Premier League and took a long time to recover at the age of 36-37.

Nhan talked about Ibra, after leaving MU, he thought his career was over, but the Swedish striker went to the US to play football and revive his form here. Ibra is now back in Serie A and has a peak performance in 2020 at AC Milan that revives the club’s dream of winning the Scudetto. If CR7 does not have enough power to play in Italy, he can still go to the MLS, not to mention that he also has commercial and investment activities there.

It wouldn’t be a problem for Ronaldo if he moves to lesser-known leagues, although the quality of football is lower, Ronaldo will not be difficult to be the superstar of the tournament, like Thierry Henry or Wayne Rooney. In fact, a large number of Josef Bican’s goals were scored in the Hungarian second division at that time and were still counted as official goals.

Bican does not play much for the national teams he is wearing but still hits 800 goals, while Ronaldo may still raise his number in Portugal by about two years with Euro, World Cup 2022 in Qatar (expected to be the last tournament for his national team).

Combined with stable performance at the club, avoiding injury and Covid-19, and a reasonable choice of league when needed, and Ronaldo will be able to reach the 900 goal mark.

Ronaldo received a great honor at Juventus against Cagliari

Cristiano Ronaldo can receive a great honor in Juventus shirt colors against Cagliari in Serie A.

Cristiano Ronaldo is ready to wear the Juventus captaincy for the first time tomorrow night. Opportunities opened up for Ronaldo when coach Andrea Pirlo confirmed both captain Giorgio Chiellini and vice captain Leonardo Bonucci were absent from the match against Cagliari.

In this case, the captain’s armband is usually given to the player who has been with the club for the longest time. Currently, goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has more time for Juventus than any of his teammates, but it is difficult to compete with Wojciech Szczesny who is in good shape.

Paulo Dybala and Juan Cuadrado also had the honor last season after a long stay with Juventus. But the two have not been in good form recently, so their ability to sit on the bench is great.

Therefore, Ronaldo became the best candidate to wear the Juventus captain’s armband against Cagliari. The Tuttosport newspaper revealed that coach Pirlo informed Ronaldo about this.

Notably, Ronaldo was given the opportunity to wear the Juventus captain’s armband in the final minutes of winning Udinese in December last year but refused to give honor to teammate Blaise Matuidi who had a longer time at Juventus.

Up to now, Ronaldo has had more than 2 years playing for Juventus. He contributed 71 goals and 17 assists in 96 appearances in all competitions.

From 2010 to 2016, the Portuguese striker achieved superb scoring speed. In each of those seasons, he scored at least 50 goals, 53, 60, 55, 51, 61 and 51 respectively.

For his part, Messi reached 73 goals in the 2011/12 campaign but never maintained a steady performance like CR7.

In six consecutive seasons from 2012/13 to 2017/18, Ronaldo was the player with the most goals in the Champions League. Messi has only won this award 3 times.

With his age and the presence of top strikers such as Lewandoski and Haaland, it is unlikely to win 3 more scorers.

Messi still receives a great bonus for loyalty despite leaving Barca

ESPN revealed Messi will still receive a big loyalty bonus whether or not he decides to leave Barca at the end of this season.

Messi has not yet agreed to extend his contract with Barca, which will end at the end of this season. Conflict with the Barca leadership could cause the Argentine striker to leave after 20 years of sticking.

But despite the decision to break up with Barca, Messi still receives a great bonus for loyalty over the years. The source of ESPN revealed that Messi’s contract with Barca in 2017 had a provision for the club to pay bonuses for player loyalty.

The gods of Barca in the past such as Xavi or Iniesta also received the same bonus when parting with the team. This is a gift that Barca gives to the players who have dedicated their career to the club.

But Messi’s case is more special because the prize money is unprecedented. The source of ESPN said that Barca will reward Messi about 66 million euros. Messi received half of the prize money in February this year and the other half will be paid out at the end of the contract.

Before that, Xavi was only awarded 21 million euros for loyalty to Barca, Iniesta 18 million, while Carles Puyol even refused Barca’s gifts. The former Spanish player thinks that Barca helped him become a good player, so it is obvious that he is loyal to the club.

In the current situation, having to pay a big bonus to Messi makes Barca face a lot of financial difficulties. They already owe about 480 million euros and are expected to lose about 300 million euros this season due to the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic.

To deal with this situation, Barca is asking the players to reduce their salaries by 30% (about 190 million euros) and sell 50% of the shares of the Barca Corporate project (about 200 million euros).

Bruno Fernandes and his teammates have just lost to Basaksehir in shock

MU just had to receive a very bitter defeat at Istanbul Basaksehir. And it can cause “Red Devils” to embrace hatred, in the context of Group H is really death, where all 4 teams have intact the door to the next round.

Group H Champions League 2020/21 becomes more complicated than ever. After the third match, this group became a “hot spot” because all 4 teams had an intact chance to continue. Only Group B, where the big Real Madrid suddenly declined, has a complicated situation similar to Group H.

Despite losing 1-2 at Istanbul Basaksehir, MU is still the top team in Group H with 6 points after 3 matches. However, the gap between them and the second ranked team RB Leipzig is no longer available. Because the German team has just shocked with a 2-1 victory over PSG to have the same 6 points as MU. PSG and Basaksehir are behind with 3 points.

Thus, the score gap between the first and bottom teams is only 3 points, while there are still 3 innings. Everything is subject to change in rematches between the teams in Group H.

MU also has to be a guest at Leipzig field in the last match, confronting PSG in the fifth game. Coach Solskjaer’s team lost to PSG 0-2 at Old Trafford in 2018, so there is no guarantee that “Red Devils “there will be 3 points, even 1 point against PSG.

It can be said that the defeat in Turkey heavily affected the progress of the “Red Devils” in the Champions League this year. Obviously, fans of this team have a reason to get angry with coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. They have made themselves unacceptable.

In the fourth match, the score gap between the teams in Group H can be completely leveled if MU continues to lose to Basaksehir, and PSG returns the debt to Leipzig. Then, Group H will happen in the case of up to 4 teams with the same 6 points.

This means that the tickets to continue in Group H Champions League 2020/21 will only be determined in the final round. But in that match, MU will have to march to Leipzig’s yard, the match will take place at 3 o’clock on December 9 (Hanoi time). This will be an uncertain trip with “Red Devils”.

The current situation is reminiscent of the 2015/16 Champions League, the season where MU was also eliminated from the group stage. In the final match, the team then led by coach Louis van Gaal had to face the home team Wolfsburg, even winning the German representative on away field. However, in the end, “Red Devils” lost 2-3 on Wolfsburg’s field and was bitterly eliminated.

Looking at the current situation, it can be seen that the advantage that MU currently has is not as great as what they think. Before the match, many people judged that Solskjaer teachers and students must have at least 1 point to leave Turkey. But no, they lost in a match where the defense played as apprentices.

If you want to avoid the disaster from group H of death, MU needs to avoid pushing himself into a dilemma. If you win against Basaksehir and PSG at Old Trafford, Solskjaer’s teachers and students will have 12 points and a great chance to continue before entering the final series. But all calculations with the “Red Devils” now become far away, when they keep playing in the style of a game or a bad match, lacking the necessary consistency and consistency.

4 Pele records that Ronaldo, Messi and Neymar still have to pursue

Soccer King Pele still owns 4 football records that Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi or Neymar are also difficult to break in the near future.

Pele has retired for more than 40 years but still holds 4 hard-to-break records in world football. Whether Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Neymar or Kylian Mbappe are very talented, the chances of breaking these records are very low.

1. The only player who won the world championship 3 times

Pele has three times to lift the World Cup championship in 1958, 1962 and 1970. That record has stood staggering in the past 50 years that no one can level. Two other players also participated in 3 World Cup finals but only won 2 times: Cafu and Ronaldo Nazario de Lima (1994, 2002).

Meanwhile, both Messi, Ronaldo and Neymar have never won the world championship, let alone leveling Pele’s record. Mbappe alone won the World Cup at the age of 19, but whether it is possible to maintain this record in the following years is still unknown.

2. World’s top scorer

Pele still claims to have scored 1,283 career goals, including both official and unofficial matches. This achievement is always controversial because many goals are not confirmed. Someone said Pele only scored 1,281 or 1,282 goals.

Even FIFA only recognized Pele to score 757 goals in official matches. This milestone is entirely within the reach of Ronado (737) and Messi (704) as both have maintained good scoring records in the past two seasons with more than 30 goals per season.

3. Player scoring the most with a team

Messi has a great chance to break the record for most goals scored with a team held by Pele. The King of Football scored 643 goals in 18 years playing for Santos.

Currently, Messi has 637 goals in Barca shirt and can completely break that record before the end of the season. Pele’s record would have been held if Messi left Barca last summer.

4. Brazil’s top scorer

Pele holds the record for most goals scored for the Brazilian team with 77 goals. But this milestone will soon be broken in the near future when the second runner, Neymar, has 64 goals.

The PSG striker is only 28 years old so there are still many opportunities to play for the Selecao and set a new scoring record.
