||Harry Kane has set himself the target of emulating Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi on the biggest stage after kickstarting his World Cup career with the brace that secured England a winning start in Russia.
The Tottenham striker now has eight goals from six games as captain of the national side and 10 in eight under Gareth Southgate’s stewardship. His two strikes against Tunisia keep him within reach of Ronaldo, Diego Costa and Romelu Lukaku in pursuit of the tournament’s Golden Boot, a trophy he is intent on claiming, and banished any lingering memories of his toils at his only previous major finals, a scoreless Euro 2016.
“I had to prove people wrong throughout my career and I love proving to myself I can do it,” said Kane. “Ronaldo is the best in the world, up there with Messi, but the challenge is there to be with them. To be the best player in the world you have to aim high – you can’t aim low – so just put no limits on yourself. I worked hard to get where I am. Phil Esposito Jersey I have a lot of determination, I enjoy being here and it is about stepping it up. I said before I was so excited to be at a World Cup and it is about proving a point. The Euros were disappointing for me, for everyone, so it was a challenge to put that right. There is no better way Eddie Goldman Jersey to do it than to win and score a couple of goals.
“I want to prove myself at a major tournament, I want to be up there with the best in the world and the only way to do that is to perform on the big stage and in the big moments. It gives me confidence doing that and I want to do that in the games ahead. I have been itching to get out there and showcase my talent. We have been in Russia a long time and were all excited to get started but you are never sure http://www.authenticangelsshop.com/...thentic-27-darin-erstad-jersey.html until you get http://www.cowboysofficialauthentic...om/WOMENS-L-P-LADOUCEUR-JERSEY.html out on the pitch. There are those moments when you need a goal but we did not panic, we looked calm, we did not look like conceding and we are always a threat at set pieces.”
Kane left the pitch at the Volgograd Arena on Monday night to discover his Spurs manager, Mauricio Pochettino, had texted him congratulations. The Argentinian has been key to the forward’s development and helped instil the 24-year-old’s unswerving belief in his ability. “Poch texted me and after the game as well – he Dejounte Murray Jersey sent a lot of love hearts and said: ‘Come on England!’” he said. “He is rooting for me. He has a lot of lads here. He is not just my boss, he’s my mate http://www.authenticdevilsstore.com/martin-brodeur-jersey_c-421.html … he’s the manager http://www.officialcardinalsnflpros...NS_YOUTH_CHRISTIAN_KIRK_JERSEY.html but he’s a friend as well. He wants me and the whole team to do well.”
The striker, who confirmed he had opted against swapping his No 9 shirt with a Tunisian opponent post-match, is now focusing on the game against Panama on Sunday when England can potentially secure qualification for the knockout phase.
“The message we have is: we attack the tournament,” added Kane. “We have not done well in recent years, so there is not much else that could go wrong. I would rather come here, attack it and score goals. If we go out, we go out. If not, we go through.
“Some big teams have lost already. It is a World Cup and we are fighting for it. Look Phil Dawson Jersey at Mexico beating Germany and how much it meant to them. Tunisia was a tough game for us but we proved to ourselves we can step up in the big moment. If we are to go far, we have to win games like that and teams who do well need last-minute goals or last-minute saves. As for my shirt, I wanted to keep it, that’s all: a first goal at a tournament, my first World Cup goals, the team’s first win, my first World Cup. One to keep.”
||Harry Kane argued justice had been done after the England captain nodded his side’s stoppage-time winner against Tunisia having seen two vociferous penalty appeals for fouls by Yassine Meriah waved away by the Colombian referee.
The Tottenham forward was wrestled to the ground by his marker at corners either side of half‑time as England heaved to re‑establish the lead surrendered to a relatively soft penalty, awarded against Kyle Walker. The referee, Wilmar Authentic KeiVarae Russell Jersey Roldán, and the VAR determined neither incident worthy of review. As it was, Kane’s first goals at a major finals, converted from close range at set pieces, ensured England won their opening group game for the sixth time at a World Cup.
“There could have been a couple http://www.lionsofficialfootballauthentic.com/Miles_Killebrew_Jersey of penalties, especially when you look at their one, which looked quite soft,” said Kane, whose two goals keep him in touch with Cristiano Ronaldo in the embryonic race for the golden boot. “The VAR is there to look at those decisions. If they don’t think it’s a penalty, we have to deal with it, but I struggled to get the Tunisia players off me all night. They were trying to grab hold, trying to stop us running, I couldn’t move at set pieces. So maybe there was a bit of justice at the end to get one at the back post.
“For sure, the tactics Tunisia used were a lesson for us. It’s part of the game. We knew, watching the other matches, there have been a lot of soft decisions and penalties awarded, so we had to be aware of that. I’m just so proud we kept going, kept on fighting, and made people back home proud. It shows good character to get on with it, and it’s a massive win. We spoke a lot about togetherness. We have a great bond off the pitch and it’s nice to see it working on the pitch. Everyone, staff included, is delighted. We’ll get on that plane happy.”
The team’s refusal to be dispirited at remaining level going into stoppage time despite their dominance – England created numerous opportunities – prompted praise from Gareth Southgate. “Even at 1‑1 I was really proud of the performance,” said the manager, whose team join Belgium in claiming maximum points from their first game in the section. “I’ve talked a lot in the weeks leading into this game about performance being key. That’s the bit we can control. There were things in the game we couldn’t control tonight, but we reacted really well to them.
“If it had been 1‑1 there would have been a level of disappointment, and the result back home would be viewed differently, but the performance was very good. We created a lot of clear-cut chances in the first half, as many as I remember, and have to be more ruthless with those. But we recovered from a harsh decision, kept our composure, then kept our patience in the second half and looked for good opportunities rather than throwing the ball into the box and hoping. There was wave after wave of attack and we weren’t hit on the counter, so I liked the controlled manner in which we defended.
“We had leaders on the field who kept delivering the right messages. We spoke this morning and covered being behind and in front in games, how we’d react being 1-1 with Authentic Anthony Zettel Jersey 15 minutes to go, and we had to keep http://www.officialmlbgiantshop.com/authentic-4-mel-ott-jersey.html probing and look for the win while not exposing ourselves on the counter … Maybe you run out of time, but we kept doing the right things and making good decisions. And good teams score late.”
England will monitor Dele Alli, who felt discomfort in a quad muscle just before the interval and was eventually replaced by the excellent Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Alli departed saying he was hopeful the injury would not be serious.
“We had to keep monitoring Dele,” Southgate said. “He was feeling a bit of an issue just before half-time, but felt he could carry on. The runs he was making was still causing problems, but we had good options on the bench. The freshness of Marcus [Rashford] and Ruben brought energy and a different threat to the ones we’d posed. They had a good impact on the game. So did the four forwards who started the game. Their movement and runs and interchanges were a real problem.”
||From selling cars, quitting work and making 64-hour round trips across the biggest nation on the planet, Peru supporters are going to extraordinary lengths to watch their country in its first World Cup finals for 36 years, but there is one particular story that will take some beating when it comes to their invasion of Russia.
“There was a guy who was worried he wouldn’t get a ticket for a Peru match, so he said he would try to put on David Bakhtiari Youth jersey 24kg so that he could apply for one of the special [easy-access extra-width] seats that are much easier to get,” says Guillermo Espinoza, an English teacher from Lima. “You get a good view as well from those seats.”
It is a remarkable tale that illustrates just how much this World Cup means to the people of Peru, who have travelled in such huge numbers to Russia, taking over whole streets everywhere from Moscow to Saransk, where the team face Denmark in their opening game on Saturday, proudly wearing those distinctive white shirts with the red sash.
“Some have come here on a €1,000 budget, they’re eating cookies in the day to get by, sleeping on floors and are taking a 32-hour train to Ekaterinburg – because it’s free – to watch the France game,” says Espinoza. “There are people who have left their job because you get paid extra money when you leave somewhere you’ve been a long time. A lot of others http://www.philadelphiaflyersoffici...e.com/Adidas-Brandon-Manning-Jersey held what we call a pollada, which involves cooking chicken and providing beer at home in exchange for money.”
That tradition in Peru more commonly takes place because someone needs emergency http://www.broncosofficialfootball.com/Brian_Dawkins_Jersey_Broncos funds, say for medical or educational purposes, although many supporters would argue that watching their team in a first World Cup finals since 1982 comes into the same category. “I was only two years old then, so this is a big opportunity for me,” says Rodrigo Verastegui, who plays the drum in the stadium at Peru home matches. “I’m here with my father, my mother and my wife and I’ve even brought my four-year-old son, because I don’t know if Peru will get to another World Cup.”
This week, Fifa revealed that 43,583 tickets were sold in Peru, making them officially the eighth‑best supported country at the World Cup, although Espinoza estimates that almost double Chuck Howley Youth jersey that number of fans have travelled to Russia. “I think 80,000 Peruvians are here, because there are a lot of Peruvian people who don’t have Peruvian passports who have come from other countries in Europe. A lot emigrated during the 1980s and Rene Robert Youth jersey the beginning of the nineties because of the economical situation and terrorism in the country.”
Football has a huge following in Peru and the country is expected to come to a standstill during the Denmark match. It was reported that an incredible 687,000 people applied for tickets for the second leg of the World Cup play-off against New Zealand in November, which the team won 2-0 in Lima to spark wild scenes at the final whistle.
“Every World Cup that we haven’t qualified for we have suffered, because we are very passionate about football,” says Angel Carranea, a fan from Lima. “That’s why now, after 36 years, we are crazy about it. I sold my car to be here. I had a Mustang GT and I got rid of it because this is a once in a lifetime experience.”
Although the supporters are revelling in their long overdue return to football’s biggest party, especially as they pipped Chile, their bitter rivals, to the play-off place in a dramatic South American qualification campaign, they are not here for a holiday and there is optimism that Ricardo Gareca’s side, unbeaten in 15 matches, can reach the knockout stage.
The biggest challenge, however, could be http://www.football49ersofficialonl...NS_YOUTH_DANIEL_KILGORE_JERSEY.html keeping emotions under control in the stands. “What you are going to see for sure at the moment of the national anthem is that 50% of us will be crying,” Espinoza says.
“I have a friend who is really worried about that because he has a heart condition, http://www.authenticsanjosesharksshop.com/authentic-brent-burns-jersey so his wife says he has been Martin Perez Jersey getting ready for the national anthem by taking medication.” cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys free shipping cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys free shipping cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys
||Age shall not wither him nor custom stale his infinite variety. Ruthless Ronnie was at it again, his 51st career hat-trick topped off with a superlative last knockings free-kick hit with a new technique. Alongside that there was the pace he should have lost five years http://www.detroitlions.us.com/WOMENS-RICKY-WAGNER-JERSEY.html ago, an efficacy of action that bordered on the supreme and the spatial awareness of a Joe Montana Jersey quantity surveyor. The Portugal captain gave a display that was enough to jump-start the World Cup in and of itself. But the delight of this match was that his performance was only one of many intriguing subplots.
Let’s dwell on the big man for a little longer, though. Thirty-three years old and off the back of another Champions League title, another 40-goal season, there remains not one sign of a weakening of his will to win. Perhaps, in fact, it is the opposite, as if the impediments that nature tries to put in his way have been transformed into just another opponent on the pitch, another obstacle to get round. On the evidence of this match Ronaldo appears even to be winning the battle with time. The pace he showed on the counterattack against Spain was terrifying. It may not be common to see him sprinting as much as this, given the way Real Madrid tend to http://www.broncosfootballofficialstore.com/Carlos_Henderson_Jersey dominate the ball, but there is no doubt he still has it in him.
At the http://www.avalancheofficialauthent...re.com/Andrei_Mironov_Jersey_Adidas same time he has the cunning and mental wherewithal that only experience can bring. Even then they are tools that are available only when one is determined to use that experience to advantage. He knew Nacho was the uncommon link in this Spanish side and so, in the third minute, he ran at it. Pulling out the stepovers as if he was still a teenager, he duly drew a Orlando Pace Jersey foul and stepped up to convert the penalty by sending David de Gea the wrong way. Ronaldo’s 27 first-half touches were judicious, every one; in the 16th minute a single backheeled flick on the halfway line sprang the entire Spain defence.
With his second goal, just before half-time, you would not put it past him to have hit the shot straight at De Gea just to put the Spanish keeper under extra psychological pressure. The late, uproarious third was a free-kick. Rather than being struck through the laces in the way he trademarked (before being imitated by so many others) he whipped it round the Spanish wall. He also rolled up the right leg on his short shorts before striking it, another Ronaldo innovation.
So far, so iincomparable, but that was hardly all. At the other end, weighing in at 192 pounds and standing out like a redwood in a team of bonsai trees was Diego Costa. Before the Spanish FA decided to create a national psychodrama by asserting their primacy in HR matters, Costa’s place in the team was probably the most contentious issue in camp. Was his skill set suited to a team who have a long-standing way of playing? If not, would he be willing or able to adapt himself to their needs? The answers, on this display at least, were no and not really, but rather delightfully it did not matter.
The Spanish No 19 was a one-man plan B and he was available from the first whistle. His tiki-taka teammates were not overly inclined to use his very particular set of skills but when they did Costa was in the mood for merking. His first goal began with the incidental pleasure of watching Pepe misjudge the milking of a minor infraction. It ended with that simple combination of brute strength and artisanal precision that is the mark of the former Chelsea man. Costa’s second goal, bundled in on the line from a Ryan Getzlaf Jersey Sergio Busquets knockdown was just as characteristic. He may not be able to dance round three opponents before playing a cross through a full-back’s legs, but he is certainly good for some other things.
One match, two headlines, and both delivered by men the subject of investigation by Spanish tax authorities. After a relatively lacklustre start to the tournament that would have been enough. But this game had a supporting cast of storylines, too, and Uruguay v Egypt would have loved to have borrowed any one of Tyler Eifert Womens Jersey them.
First, there was that De Gea blooper. It seems a long time since Alex Ferguson had to attack referees after matches in order to deflect attention from the Spaniard dropping crosses. In fact it may be De Gea’s first error since 2011. But it happens to the best of them, as well as most England keepers. Then there was a dazzling display from Isco, and a severe case of stage fright from Goncalo Guedes. Oh and Nacho, a guy who has six goals in his Real Madrid career, scores his first for his country with a strike that is almost certainly through to the goal of the tournament montage if not the top three. cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys from china cheap jerseys free shipping wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys
||Mamdouh Abbas http://www.broncosfootballprosshop.com/Jake_Butt_Jersey_Cheap wants to set the record straight. A wealthy businessman who has built a vast real estate and petroleum empire is these days better known in Egypt as the man who refused to sign Mohamed Salah in 2011, when chairman of Eric Hosmer Womens Jersey Zamalek – one of the country’s leading teams. “Salah needs much Nelson Cruz Womens Jersey more work,” he said in a televised interview that year. But contrary to what his successor at the club (and apparent arch nemesis) says, a separate committee took the decision at the time. “I am not responsible,” insists Abbas.
Speaking the day after http://www.officialramsfootballshop.com/YOUTH+ETHAN+WESTBROOKS+JERSEY Salah became the first Egyptian to be named Professional Footballers’ Association player of the year, it is not surprising that Abbas feels sensitive over the claim that he missed Salah’s potential. It must feel as if he is defending himself not only to ardent football fans but also to an entire nation that dotes on their “Egyptian King”.
Egypt’s reaction to the shoulder injury Salah sustained in last month’s Champions League final following a challenge from Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos, and which in the immediate aftermath made him a doubt for the World Cup, showed how he is revered in the country. It was summed up by a headline in the al-Masry al-Youm newspaper the next day: “The night Egyptians cried: Ramos the butcher dislocated Abu Salah’s shoulder.”
Egyptians cursed Ramos on social media and the Arabic hashtags “Ramos the Dog” and “Son of a Whore” were soon trending on Egyptian Twitter after Salah left the pitch in tears at Kiev’s Olympic Stadium. An Egyptian lawyer has filed a lawsuit against Ramos, equivalent to £874m, for causing Egyptians “physical and psychological harm”.
For his fellow countrymen, Salah’s magic has transcended Authentic Keanu Neal Jersey the pitch. He represents a rare figure behind whom all Egyptians, regardless of class or politics, can unite, an astonishing feat given the years of political and economic turmoil that have followed the uprising of 2011 that toppled the longtime president Hosni Mubarak.
“Mohamed Salah is really important because he is a symbol … like Tutankhamun, like the pyramids,” said Mohamed Farag Amer, head of Egypt’s parliamentary youth and sports committee. On the 25-year-old being compared to Ken Griffey Jersey Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, the Cairo-based sports journalist Hatem Maher says: “This is unprecedented for any Egyptian football player at any point in history.”
Egypt kick off their first World Cup for 28 years against Uruguay on Friday and Salah seems certain to start even though doubts remain over whether he has fully recovered. It will be a huge shame if he has not, and not only because of the forward’s talents. It was Salah who sent Egypt to Russia by scoring twice in their dramatic 2-1 victory over Congo in October. Egyptians poured on to Tahrir Square in central Cairo – the centre of the popular protests against Mubarak – after the match to celebrate, waving flags and blowing horns. Some observers noted that the rapturous scenes on the square were reminiscent of the heady days of the revolution.
“I think our qualification for the World Cup was the only moment all Egyptians were happy since the uprising … [it] was a moment people craved for so long,” said Maher.
The fall of Mubarak in 2011, at the height of the Arab Spring, gave momentary http://www.authenticflyerstore.com/...hentic-19-nolan-patrick-jersey.html hope to a nation that had been in the grip of his dictatorship for almost 30 years. But the transition to democracy proved turbulent and collapsed when the country’s polarising first democratically elected president, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi, was overthrown by the military with popular support in 2013. Egypt has since been under the iron fist of President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, the former head of the armed forces, who has ushered in the most severe clampdown on dissent in the country’s contemporary history. cheap jerseys free shipping cheap jerseys china wholesale jerseys from china wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys
