BALL - Suarez scratches Europe out of his future (Uruguay)

Now Luis Suarez, representing Nacional de Montevideo, rules out the possibility of playing in Europe again. At the age of 35, he is gearing up to play in a fourth World Cup – and face Portugal in the group stage – but he knows that after leaving Atlético Madrid, the future will no longer run through Europe.

In an interview with a Spanish newspaper Brand, the striker recalled that he lived his peak at Barcelona, ​​where he was part of the famous MSN trio (Messi, Suarez and Neymar) and won nine titles in three seasons, including two leagues, the Champions League and the Club World Cup. . He scored 121 goals in 147 games, so self-esteem can only be good: “I give myself 12 because of the expectations with which I arrived, which were not so many, because there were Leo and Neymar. They said that three roosters in a chicken coop cannot live together, but we showed that we can. I am proud of my career, I lived up to expectations. After that, the level went down, but even so, I always exceeded 25 goals in a season. And I give myself 10 points for Atlético.

After two years at Atletico, he returned to his country in August and signed with his youth club Nacional. President José Fuentes has already said that Suarez will leave the club when his contract expires, at the end of the year, and there is talk of MLS, but Suarez left only one guarantee for his future:

“It’s not known yet. It’s one of the options that I see very close, but I don’t think about it now. I like the National. I’ve already made my European career and left very proud. I had many options before returning to ” Nacional, but looking at this: Groningen, Ajax, Liverpool, Barça, Atlético… what could be better than this career in Europe? That’s why I couldn’t be worse after Atlético team. It was the perfect trajectory. So it made sense to go back to Uruguay, not because it’s a minor league, but to complete the circle.”

“Rafael is happy because Portugal had a good World Cup, but there is a lot of quality and competitiveness in the attacking sector of the Portuguese team. Rafael has the technique and speed that few players have, but he had to adapt to the realities of Milan, with all due respect to Lille, where he comes from, but here the pressure is different. Anyone who sees him train knows he has incredible potential, but he has yet to make the leap to become a champion because he can be even more determined on the opposite court. He goes there more shrewdly and decisively, but he is a player who can do anything.

BALL - Paulo Bento and the match against Brazil: "It's inhuman" (South Korea)

South Korea coach Paulo Bento of Portugal predicted tomorrow’s game with Brazil for the 1/8 finals of the World Cup this Sunday, being very critical of the short break in relation to the meeting, which the team played. Portugal Friday.

“I don’t remember anything like that. I watched what happened in 2018 and I don’t remember there being 72 hours between games. There were four or five days, but not 72 hours. It’s inhuman, it’s unfair. We have to live with this reality that FIFA wants, which is to create less conditions for those who already have less conditions and more conditions for those who already have more. It is already difficult to compete with such a great team as Brazil, for me the strongest candidate for the World Cup, but with these restrictions, our task will be more difficult. However, we will try and not give up,” he said at a press conference.

Therefore, the preparation was limited to “video”, explained Paulo Bento. “It is impossible to prepare such a game on the field by playing after 72 hours. No one can do this after the physical and emotional wear and tear we experienced in the previous game. This creates a big embarrassment for the teams, and for us more than for Brazil, because of the way the Brazilian team moved the team in the last game,” he said, remembering that the opponent had already qualified and could change teams.

As for the game itself, he assured that South Korea will do everything to counteract Canariña’s favoritism: “If we played a championship with more tours with Brazil, they would always be ahead of us. In single player, Brazil still has a lot of opportunities, but we also have more opportunities. We have nothing to lose. The task is difficult, but attractive, and we will have to try. In many moments we will play closer to our zone, and we have to put up with it, because the opponent will force us to do it. However, we will fight to the limit of our strength, as we have done so far. We like to compete and we never give up, which we have already proven,” he said.

Neymar will already be on the side of Brazil: “We would be hypocrites if we said that Neymar is better to play, but, frankly, I always prefer to have the best players in the games. We have to play our best, competing against a great team full of talent, who now add organization and intensity to their individual qualities,” said Paulo Bento.

Regarding the match against Portugal (he was suspended and had to watch from the bench, unable to speak at the end), Paulo Bento admitted that he had a “high emotional charge” considering South Korea’s sports goals and the fact that he stood in front of your country.

We have already done two incredible trips around the country, but we feel there is potential for another one and we want to make it happen. We recognize the situation of everyone, at home [n.d.r. Inglaterra, em referência às preocupações da população com a inflação, aumento do custo da energia e guerra na Ucrânia] and we want to bring smiles to people’s faces at the end of this weekend.”

Southgate showed confidence, adding: “I think 2018 was a step into the unknown and we didn’t know how far the team could go. There was no evidence that we were capable of handling elimination. We knew how much pressure we were putting on the players and how realistic the internal goal was. But now, naturally, they have more experience in such games, and when we qualified, we were successful, but with less celebration on the field. The mentality is to stay here longer. The intention is different, it has changed. What we considered success has changed.”
