Bordeaux winner of the Challenge Emiliano Sala against Caen, Nantes loses again / Friendly / Bordeaux-Caen (2-1) / July 18, 2021 /

Finally a new title for the Girondins!

In Orleans for the weekend on the occasion of the Emiliano Sala Challenge with a four-team table, Bordeaux – winner of Niort on penalties on Friday – returned Caen to the “final” of this event (2-1) and finished in the first place. The Girondins were surprised by a goal from Russian defender Vladislav Molchan (20, not yet competing with the Caen pros) upon receiving a corner from the second minute. But they logically equalized from the start with a sharpened Rémi Oudin from afar (47e), then went ahead thanks to the famous Sékou Mara, who came into play a few minutes earlier and on the lookout at the penalty spot at the end of the match (84e)

Earlier in the afternoon for the “small final” of the tournament, the Chamois Niortais (18it is Ligue 2 in 2020-2021) won against FC Nantes (1-0) despite an overall domination of the yellow and green. Unable to conclude, the Canaries gave in on a free kick from Mathis Ansar badly returned by Alban Lafont (81e) and left Loiret with two defeats against training from the anteroom (after the 1-0 defeat against Caen on Saturday).

But hey, a fourth place (out of four) remains a fourth place …

RFU President Alexander Dyukov at a press conference after the executive committee of the organization expressed his attitude to a possible change in the limit for legionnaires in Russian football. His words are quoted by the correspondent of RBC.

“This system is ‘8 + 17’ – it is more effective than the limit ‘6 + 5’. We see that clubs have become more selective in the selection of foreign players. It became easier for coaches to work. The playing time of young Russians has grown. But any limit, no matter how you set it up, has its drawbacks – it is flawed. And, of course, the optimal system in which there is no limit. We are now discussing the issue of the limit with the government, ”Dyukov said.

Royal Family, who does Queen Elizabeth support? And William and Carlo?

Waiting for Italy-England, let’s find out which teams the English royals, Queen Elizabeth and her heirs to the throne Charles and William sympathize with

Here we are: the final of Euro 2020 she has arrived. Tonight with Italy-England the lights will go out on this difficult European Championship. But before the show ends, let’s indulge in the latest football trivia in English sauce. We peek in casa Windsor and find out, for which clubs the footballing heart of the most prominent members of the Royal Family.

the queen

Let’s start with “The Queen” Elisabetta: the team of the heart of the British monarchy has always been the Arsenal, but the queen also cheers for the West Ham. Without fanfare, however, with discretion and grace as only she knows how to do: just as for politics, even for sport one must not express trends or opinions. The etochetta requires it. But The Arsenal it is in fact the only team received at Buckingham Palace by the Queen in 2007 for a tea and “Her Majesty the Queen” she is said to have been particularly affected by Cesc Fabregas after speaking with the Spanish midfielder.

the future king

In order of succession, the heir to the throne, Carlo. In 2012, it came to light that the Prince of Wales was a supporter of the Burnley after doing charitable activities in Lanchashire in the North of England. Why precisely this nicknamed team Clarets, that is, purplish red, from the color of the shirts, certainly not as calm as the supporters who now seem to have calmed down. Who knows maybe having the prince among the fans has not served to reassure them.

and principles

Prince William, future king of England after Charles, just seen a Wembley rejoice in the victories of the English national team , seems to support the Aston Villa one of the two teams of Birmingham. Why did you choose a non-London club? This seems to be a love born in school and still alive.

He principle Harry, at least in football, he follows family traditions and cheers for The Arsenal. Certainly emblazoned teams. The Gunners, after all, as they are called because of their crest, are one of the clubs oldest in Great Britain.


And the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton wife of Prince William? During a children’s benefit event in 2015, she revealed that she was a fan of the Chelsea. A glamorous London team that goes well with a glamorous and chic woman like the Duchess.

filippo friend of champions

One last thought for the Prince Philip, the late husband of Queen Elizabeth. He was a great sports fan, his death was remembered on all fields of Premier League. Careful not to alienate the sympathies of his subjects by declaring his faith for some club the Prince, he was a careful observer of football and its protagonists, a good friend of Bobby Charlton, but also of Keegan and sir Alex Ferguson.

Bukayo Saka, the surprise of the chef Southgate / Euro 2020 / Final / Italy-England /

Holder three times since the start of the Euro in an England team full of attacking talents, Bukayo Saka is undoubtedly the biggest surprise concocted by Gareth Southgate since the start of the tournament. And it’s not over, since the young prodigy, one of the few players able to sketch a smile on the faces of Arsenal fans in recent months, has every chance of making his debut against Italy again. this Sunday evening in the final (9 p.m.). Watch out, thrill player.

With almost every publication of the scoresheet since the match against Czechia, the same astonishment on the faces of the English supporters: Bukayo Saka is the holder. Launched in the third group match against Souček and his friends, the kid from London Colney, the Arsenal training center, was able to be decisive to be renewed against Germany and Denmark. In the meantime, he let Jadon Sancho take a little light during the demonstration against Ukraine, just to treat a small pain in his ankle. Again decisive in the semi-finals, here he is hoping to play the detonators for the first final of his country in a major tournament for 55 years.

« Little chili » spiced up

“It started with Auba [Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang]. He said it in French. We were doing a finishing drill in training, and he kept saying it, and I kept scoring, I was shooting so hard and he was calling me “little chili”. » A nickname that has remained attached to the young nugget of north London, as he himself recently explained to the press. It must be said that the young man of 19 years has applied to raise somewhat the taste of the season of Gunners farther and farther from the score. This exercise confirmed in passing the promises made since his first appearance in red and white, one evening in November 2018 against Vorskla Poltava in the Europa League. Since then, Saka is quite simply Arsenal’s best passer over the period, with 21 caviars delivered from his right wing.

To the point that Emirates Stadium fans sometimes name their team Bukayo Saka FC as a mockery of the poor performance of several executives. The beautiful story of little Bukayo begins on the grounds of his club Greenford Celtic, where he was spotted at the age of seven. “I had invitations from Tottenham, Chelsea, Fulham and Watford, but my only choice was Arsenal, remembers the boy. I liked the way they played, so the choice was easy for me. I trained in Hale End (the training center for Gunners, Editor’s note) and I signed at the age of nine. ”

And very quickly, everyone is under the spell. Even Thierry Henry, who came to train within the academy between 2015 and 2016. “He always wanted the ball and he was brave, declared the French striker to Goal. It was too early to say how good he would be, but when I saw him win in the first team after I left, I thought to myself: “Wow, this is amazing.” I always liked the kid’s attitude and his commitment. What I like about him is that he cares about his club and will do anything to make the team win. You have to respect that. ”

English cream

His tenure against Denmark on Wednesday night allowed him, at 19 years, 10 months and 2 days, to become the youngest English player to start a match of such magnitude under the liquette of the Three Lions. Not so anecdotal when we know the precocity of the one who should celebrate his eighth cape this Sunday evening for what is already one of the most significant matches of his career. It was on October 8, during a friendly against Wales, that Gareth Southgate decided to put it to the test. Verdict: 90 minutes which call 232 on the three meetings of the following gathering, in November.

The rise of steps four to four continues in early June. In the list of 26, Saka scores his first goal in preparation against Austria and gives himself the right to savor: “This is probably the biggest moment of my career so far. To mark for his country, we dream of it when we are children. It’s an incredible feeling and I hope I can experience that feeling many more times. ” And why not from the final against Italy? The opportunity should in any case be given to him, once again.

In any case, seeing his name once again written among the eleven holders on the scoresheet would no longer be a surprise for José Mourinho. “I played an 18-year-old in a Champions League final (Carlos Alberto) and he is still the youngest player to score at this level. No problemexclaimed the Portuguese in the talkSPORT podcast. Southgate had no problem doing this, not only with Saka but also with other players giving them chances to play. The kid proves my theory, which is that experience has nothing to do with age. ” Here is another who would see himself crowned with his country from his 19 years. And why not complete the success of his family with a remote-controlled strike from the entrance to the surface?
