"I take suitcases for a month ... and tobacco too" :: zerozero.pt

Portugal continues preparations for the start of the European Championship on June 15 against Hungary. Fernando Santos, national selector, raised several topics in an interview RTP 3, including the possibility of “failure”.

“Failure … I don’t like this word, but I understand the question. Obviously, being a candidate for the group stage will be a failure. But I think that this will not happen with Portugal. And there are other great teams that didn’t even go to Europe. This is a very difficult group and I do not know how these 3 teams are in the same group, it is difficult to understand. I don’t remember seeing this, ”the 66-year-old coach admitted.

After the promise made in 2016 when Portugal won the tournament, Fernando Santos set himself a goal again: “As a goal, yes, this is a goal, I am sure, and I did not change my mind, we always go. win. I take suitcases for a month … and tobacco too! “

“If I see that Cristiano is not doing well and does not give the team what we want, obviously, he must be replaced. But when you have one of the best in the world (…), if they ask Deschamps or Lowe, they will say that they will build a team of players who can be the most influential. Cristiano is not one of those players who, in defense, bring a lot of benefit to the team, and we do not want that. The team must adapt, ”he began by telling the national team coach about the possible change of the CR7 title holder.

“In the clubs, some of the players who are here are also a little Cristiano Ronaldo. Everyone understands this very well, ”he concluded.

Returning to club football does not come out of plans of Fernando Santos: “I liked it because I like teaching. The team always has something to fix, but here it is difficult. I have three or four workouts. The coach of the club trains every day, he orders to stop, redo … Here I cannot always stop and redo, here and there … Because the training ends, and we do not leave it. This is completely different. I will be happy to return to coaching at the club. If I ever have to do it, I will do it with all the joy. “

Zaidoo has already booked a return trip to Porto

Tunisia will now face Burkina Faso in the CAN quarter-finals, which eliminated Gabon today.

Tunisia eliminated one of the top favorites to win the African Cup of Nations (CAN), Nigeria, by winning 1-0 to advance to the quarter-finals where they will face Burkina Faso.

The goal that qualified Tunisia was scored early in the second half, in the 47th minute, by midfielder Youssef Mskani of Al Arabi, currently ranked sixth in the Qatar I League.

Tunisia’s qualification against Nigeria is surprising considering North Africa’s ‘eighth place’ finish as one of the best third-placed teams in a group they only had one win against a fragile selection from Mauritania and two defeats, against the Gambia and Mali, both 1-0.

On the other hand, Nigeria advanced to Group D with nine points added from three wins, one over title contender Carlos Queiroz coached Egypt and two more over Sudan and Guinea-Bissau.

Porto Zaidu FC played 90 minutes for the Nigerian team, whose premature return to Porto is certainly good news for Porto coach Sergio Conceição.

It’s also worth noting that Nigeria were reduced to 10 after the 66th minute when Everton’s English striker Alex Iwobi was sent off with a straight red card.

Tunisia will now face Burkina Faso in the CAN quarter-finals, who eliminated Gabon today in the final shoot-out after a 1-1 draw at the end of regulation and extra time.

Eriksen set to return to Premier League after panic

Editorial

Danish international to strengthen Brentford, British press assures

After a big scare set by Christian Eriksen at Euro 2020, the 29-year-old midfielder is about to complete his return to the competition and soon to the Premier League.

The English newspaper The Sunday Mirror guarantees that Eriksen will strengthen 14th-placed Brentford in the next 72 hours, simply by skipping the club’s routine medicals.

Eriksen has spent the last few days training with the Ajax team in order to get back to perfect pace as soon as possible and do his part for the bees.

Eriksen has been a free player on the market since 17 December, when Inter announced the sacking of a Danish international who was banned from Serie A due to having a cardiac defibrillator implanted to control any anomalies.

The player went into cardiac arrest in a Euro 2020 group stage match between Denmark and Finland and has some doubts about whether he can return to professional football. Panic appears to be a thing of the past as Eriksen is about to move to the second English club of his career after a successful run at Tottenham Hotspur between 2013 and 2019.
