Russia 2018 - The World Cup thread

Recommended Posts

Allnigeriasoccer.com understands that Manchester City are set to earn US$80,087.23 from Kelechi Iheanacho's involvement with the Super Eagles at the 2018 World Cup.

The Nigeria international striker ended his association with The Citizens about a year ago but the Premier League champions will still be compensated by Fifa.

FIFA pay a compensation package of $8,530-per-day for every player released for the tournament, starting two weeks before the opening match until they are they are knocked out of the competition whether or not they participated in the group games.

Manchester City will receive more than one-third of the total amount for Iheanacho making Nigeria's World Cup squad as he was registered with the club July 2016 to August 3, 2017.

The Total per Player is distributed to the club(s) with which the player was registered during the two years before the final competition of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Iheanacho's current club, Leicester City, will receive approximately $142,000

Seriously, has this tournament been a successful one for England or just another opportunity gone and plenty of room for improvement required etc?

We've improved, but there's lots of room for improvement would be my analysis of our tournament.

The Starsport online team have voted, and we have come up with a team of the tournament  - in a 4-2-3-1 formation - from the votes.

 

Trippier plays at left back due to the lack of left-sided defenders picking up votes. What a team this would be to see in action!

Trippier at left back lol 


He's had a great tournament but don't shoehorn him in for the sake of it. 

 

Does a disservice to actual left-backs like Strinic or Hernandez who had very good tournaments.

would this mean we'd get an amount, albeit small, for Kante as he was still registed for us for some part of July 2016 lol

You reckon Strinic was good? I’m not so sure. To me it looked like most of Croatia’s opponents had identified him as the weak point and had plenty of success down his side. Vrsajlko at RB seemed a much tougher nut to crack.

How much longer will the 2018 World Cup  sub-forum stay open?

 

There‘s a time when there‘s no more use to it.

This weekend? Next week?

It was a great world cup, best since 1990...better in some aspects.

Much better in terms of football. 1990 was a cultural event and we remember it because of Pavarotti and England's performance. But a lot of games were average. 1994 and 98 were better in terms of entertainment.

This World Cup is probably the most dramatic I've seen.
