Neymar honoured to go level with Romario on 55 Brazil goals

Neymar honoured to go level with Romario on 55 Brazil goals

Like Pele said years ago - the power of the handsome game!

Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino appears to have backtracked on plans to expand the World Cup from 2022.

Turning his attention to the players that will catch the eye, he stated that in every World Cup, a new superstar emerges.

Only eight of the 211 official affiliate nations have had the distinction of lifting the prestigious symbol of worldwide football supremacy.

Italy, the 2006 World Cup champions, failed to qualify.

Aside from their venomous offence, the Uruguayan team also boasts of depth and talent on the defensive end with players like Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez able to stabilize the back line.

This is by no means a rushed conclusion.

Coutinho when then hit the crossbar while Firmino nearly got on the scoresheet as the game ended in a deserved 3-0 win to the visitors.

Having previously said he was keen on an adding 16 teams, Infantino was now casting doubt on the possibility of further disrupting preparations for the Qatar tournament.

"We are drawn to machine learning models because they can sift through a large number of possible explanatory variables to produce more accurate forecasts than conventional alternatives", a group of strategists from Goldman's worldwide research team wrote in a client note.

Brazilian optimism must, however, be tempered in the reality that Brazil enters nearly all major tournaments as favourites.

Brazil's squad arrived in Russian Federation on Monday with their star Neymar seemingly recovered from a broken foot bone as they begin their quest to win a sixth World Cup.

"What is clear is that whoever plays will do their best and those who don't should contribute from the outside".

A new formula that rewards teams for playing more games was approved Sunday, and it takes effect in July ranking after the World Cup in Russian Federation. India's football captain Sunil Chhetri will be part of both the English and Hindi panels and he would be joined by former captain Bhaichung Bhutia. I am not holding my breath, though. Spain are loaded with veterans and boast one of the world's best goalies in David De Gea. I doubt very much it will happen.

The 23-year-old midfielder has gained loads of plaudits for his displays at Lazio in this past season, and might look to show exactly why some of Europe's biggest teams are in for his signature.
