BOLA - Argentina with Otamendi popularized Italy without bri(lx)o in the final (international)

Argentina won the Copa Finalissima for the second time in the competition’s history, beating Italy 3–0 in a one-way game, with Albiceleste’s team completely dominating.

Messi, Di Maria and Lautaro Martinez were in the spotlight, forming a deadly trident that just didn’t do more damage because Donnarumma was in a great plan between the posts.

The first goal was signed by Martinez served by Messi and the second was Di Maria’s kick, of course, which has already trained the fans to shine in the finals. Messi landed several shots on goal, but failed to beat the number 21, being involved in a game in which Dybala closed the scoring.

The confirmation of the claim of the American basketball player was confirmed to CNN International by the player’s lawyers.

Griner left the Russian court without making any statement to reporters and is returning to the bar to hear her on the 14th of this month. Russian authorities claim cannabis-based oil was found in the basketball player’s luggage. Griner has been in pre-trial detention since February 17.

Griner was without charge and unable to contact his family and his wife, Cherell Griner, as he found himself at the epicenter of growing tensions between the US and Russia, exacerbated by the latter’s invasion of Ukraine since February 24 and the war.

In May, the US State Department classified Griner as “detained by mistake” and classified her as a “hostage” of Russia. Now, at a second hearing in the case – after being cross-examined last week – Griner has, to his surprise, pleaded guilty.

Russian prosecutors allege that Griner tried to smuggle cannabis in his luggage. The prosecution theory is based on Britney’s alleged intent to buy and import banned substances from Russia to transact in the US, as prosecutors defended in a previous hearing, Russian state news agency TASS reported.

The fact that President Biden read the letter I sent him, although it took some time to respond, gives me great hope. I know that Britney will be more comfortable just knowing that she is not forgotten, ”Sherel Griner writes in the same note.

Following River Plate’s elimination from the Copa Libertadores at the feet of Vélez Sarsfield, midfielder Enzo Fernández left his doors open to leave Buenos Aires for Lisbon to strengthen Benfica ahead of the start of the new season. However, in statements at a post-match press conference on Thursday, Marcelo Gallardo, River Plate manager, said the midfielder’s future is not fully decided, unlike his teammate, who made his last appearance for the Millionaires. “[Palavras para Julian Álvarez e Enzo Fernández, que cumpriu hoje, muito provavelmente, o último jogo pelo River antes de se mudar para o Benfica?] Well, the case of Enzo Fernandez is not clear, not clear. I will say yes to Julián because it was his last game for him. I will tell you the same thing that I told him in person and then in the presence of his companions. For me, it is a source of great pride that I had the opportunity to coach him, to share in these years of growth that he had, and his football evolution. Today he moves to one of the biggest teams in the world. This makes me very happy and is a source of pride for me as I have seen him grow up and work hard. He has shown not only to me but to all Argentine football that he deserves the opportunity he has and I have no doubt that he will become an elite player, in fact he already is. He is a great boy, a great professional and I wish him and his family all the best,” said the millionaires coach, not to mention the situation with the midfielder, who has an agreement to move to Lush.

We will work for this and be able to respect our shirt,” the defender said, referring to the club’s website.

On the challenges they will face: “We are aware and confident that we have to be beaten for being champions last year, so we have to work very well. As I said, we need to improve on what we did last year. We have the Champions League, a competition where we want to celebrate our club and Portugal. We must work hard and with great enthusiasm to live until the end of the year happy.”

The coach demands a lot from us, he always makes sure that we can be at our best level in training. Even when we are not in Olivala, he requires us to try to be at our best, staying focused even when we are at home.
