Argentina 3-3 France - Analysis [Thread]

➡️ Scaloni springs another surprise with Di Maria down the left!
➡️ Enzo proving what a top DLP/CDM talent is meant to do ... pockets Griezmann and controls the build up phase
➡️ Why Kounde had a mare..

#Messi𓃵 #Argentina #WorldCup2022
A stunning tactical decision to bring back Di Maria into the fold and then stick him up against Kounde rather than Theo. On paper Kounde should be a 'defensive' right back but he's someone who we have described as a 'right-centre-back'...
These types of defenders prefer marking space and wing-forwards who try to score goals using movement off ball.

Di Maria is more of a traditional wide man and kept engaging Kounde in 1 v 1's closer to the flank... he struggled to keep him quiet and Dembele didn't help out well.

3/. Just as the rules of football ensure fairness on the pitch, so human rights law governs behaviour globally

But the rules need to be applied equally

Referees - like @amnesty - can blow the whistle on visible foul play - but systemic injustices remain!

The story of the 'Bare-Footed' Indians who rejected the opportunity to play at the 1950 World Cup...

➡️ Despite 8/11 players being barefoot, they nearly knocked out France in the 1948 Olympics
➡️ Beat Ajax 5-1 in a European tour


#India #WorldCup2022 #France
The 1948 London Olympics was India's first major international tournament, where a predominately barefooted Indian team (containing Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims) lost 2–1 to France, failing to convert two penalties.
The Indian team was greeted and appreciated by the crowd for their sporting manner. "The French had been given a run for their money – and that, too, by the barefooted Indians!", the British media expressed.

This guy gave me butterflies for all the wrong reasons every time the ball went near his goal - even if it was a back pass…
Probably the biggest stinker of a tournament from an established world class player in his prime of this tournament…

DEVELOPING: At 00:49 on Wednesday, #COP15 delegates from developing countries walked out of the contact group on resource mobilization, ending the meeting. The other contact group, on review mechanism, also ended its meeting soon after.
Delegates left the meeting because they felt that it was impossible to make progress in the discussions because developed countries were not ready to compromise - they invited the Parties that are obstacles to reflect on their positions in order to move forward at another point.
After weeks of acting as if discussions could move forward without properly addressing the issue of financial resources, now Parties are finally done with pretending. The game is finally on.

How The 1978 Gold winning Pakistan Hockey Team Inspired Argentina's 1978 World Cup Win!

Cesar Luis Menotti was inspired by the tactics of the legendary Abdul Waheed Khan and in particular the concept of 'Double Attack'...


#Argentina #WorldCup2022 #Pakistan ImageImageImage
In 1978, hockey and football World Cups were held in Argentina. The hockey event was held first. Throughout the Hockey World Cup, a wonderful Pakistan team managed by Abdul Waheed Khan displayed a breathtaking attacking game which captivated crowds and connoisseurs alike.
During their victorious campaign, the Green-shirts created many records. They became the first team to land the World Cup without losing (or even drawing) a single match. Pakistan’s goal difference of 31 goals (35 for and four against) is till date a World Cup record.

"death is a natural part of life"

- Nasser Al Khater, CEO of the 2022 World Cup, responding to another migrant worker death...

Extreme callousness.

It just shows how much #Qatar and #WorldCup2022 don't care about the people who built the tournament.…
There is clear evidence of thousands of migrant worker deaths in the lead-up to the #WorldCup. Authorities failed to conduct meaningful investigations into a large percentage of them, classifying many as unexplained or due to “natural causes.”
People died so FIFA and friends can make kabillions, and they won't even acknowledge the deaths now?
