Croatia’s sliding-door moment

Pyry Soiri is a name that will sound vaguely familiar to regular followers of the Croatia team but most others in the country – in particular those who have jumped on the bandwagon as they have made their way to a World Cup final – are unlikely to have heard of him. But the 23-year-old Finnish player with a Namibian father, who plays for Shakhtyor Soligorsk in the Belarussian Premier League, had a key role in Croatia’s ascent to the top. …

breaking barriers for fans

Two couples are placed opposite each other at the one remaining table in a bar by the Volga. One is Russian and the other Brazilian; it quickly turns out there is no common language but the semaphore for “anyone fancy a beer?” is universal enough and, besides, the football is on. They could probably get by for the evening on visual cues and repeat mentions of Harry Kane, but England v Colombia works better as background entertainment and the local man has an idea. Out comes a…

Didier Deschamps jerseys

Almost 20 years to the day since France beat Brazil 3-0 in Paris to win their first and only World Cup, the man who captained a team that united a nation moved to within 90 minutes of getting his hands on the trophy again. Triumphant as a player back in 1998, Didier Deschamps now has the opportunity to become only the third man to repeat that feat as a manager, following in the footsteps of Brazil’s Mário Zagallo and Franz Beckenbauer, the German. …

the spot for Croatia against

Ivan Rakitic has not always been the coolest man in world football. Maybe it was the dog that did it, maybe it was his wife or maybe it was his mother-in-law. He delivered the perfect riposte, that is for sure. Youth Elite Trevor Siemian White Jersey: Vapor Untouchable Road #13 NFL Denver Broncos Nike Not long after the midfielder missed a vital penalty for Sevilla against Rayo Vallecano, in 2012, sending the ball well wide of the right post, victory denied, his phone…

nutmeg Luka Modric again for

Did you ever hear about the time the teenage Dele Alli nutmegged Luka Modric? August 2015, to be precise, for Spurs in the Audi Cup at the Allianz Arena, Munich. Alli was 19, a £5m signing from Milton Keynes Dons thrown into the deep end against Real Madrid, and at least he was courteous enough not to ruffle Modric’s hair, Gazza-style, as he slipped the ball through his opponent’s legs. Modric, he recalls, collared him in the tunnel and called him a “little bugger”. Though the…

Willian steps into the limelight

From the Seleção, a selection box of treats. While their rivals falter, beset by rusting parts and in some cases complete mechanical failure, Brazil roll on and their claim to a sixth World Cup now looks more persuasive than at any point in the past four years. The strut of champions-elect is returning and, as players and staff piled on after Roberto Firmino’s far-post tap-in, it did not take an outrageous leap to envisage similar scenes unfolding 13 days down the line when this often…

England await critical knockout

It was Sunday afternoon, in a beachfront hotel in Repino, and Gareth Southgate was thinking back to the night England qualified for the World Cup and one of those jarring occasions at Wembley – of which there have been a few – that somehow still feel so relevant when charting the trajectory of his team. NHL Women's Montreal Canadiens Big & Tall Logo T-Shirt - Black Southgate was reminiscing about a scratchy 1-0 win against Slovenia last…

Didier Deschamps hopes Frances

If a manager’s demeanour in front of the cameras is an indication of the state of his team then France risk staring into the void. The auditorium inside the Kazan Arena is cavernous but after 20 minutes in the presence of Didier Deschamps it seemed to have been sucked dry of air. Nobody present came away feeling remotely illuminated as to how his team may galvanise themselves to overcome Argentina on Saturday, although they did, at least, depart reassured Deschamps knew the identity of…

Gareth Southgate looks to lay ghost

It was inevitable that, at some point, the conversation with Gareth Southgate would turn to the most harrowing ordeal of his professional life and the reasons why the England manager, after two decades of living with the consequences, is so determined to make sure his team will not fall into the same trap. Youth Malik Beasley Swingman Navy Blue Nike Jersey: NBA Denver Nuggets #25 City Edition Southgate was thinking back to that night against Germany in the semi-final of Euro…

fit into the Argentina collective

A lot of the talk at this World Cup has been about big teams underperforming and, believe me, I know all about that. In 2002 we went into the first World Cup in Asia as reigning champions and we had also added the European crown in 2000, playing better football and with more confidence in our ability. France turned up in South Korea with Thierry Henry, David Trezeguet and Djibril Cissé – the top scorers in England, Italy and France if my memory serves me well. We were the overwhelming…

Defeating England is not a priority
