The Portugal coach did not know the story, it is incredible that he put Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench

The journalist analyzed what happened in the quarterfinals of the tournament

(From Doha, Qatar) Anything could happen the day after the surprises that occurred in the World Cup. There were no longer issues judged before the ball started rolling. There was only one big surprise -for some- with the removal of Brazil. The context and the way in which they end up taking part in the Argentina It is still a surprise because the result was comfortable and comfortable in the transit of the match. That is already in the past and today you had to follow the two games that were played, but always pay attention to what happened this Friday. Surely everyone took note.

On the first turn, Morocco wanted to be the Croatia from yesterday, although Croatia He has a very different football stature than the Moroccan. But Morocco they have been, throughout the tournament, a very tough and stubborn team. It knows its limitations -there are several- and, also, it knows its virtues. He has the ability to make you fall into the defensive funnel, a midfielder like Sofyan Amrabat which is the thermometer of the team, players like Sofiane Boufal which have a very distinguished technical characteristic, Achraf Hakimi It is the team’s hierarchy quota, but not much more.

Opposite, was the almighty Portugal with an unusual decision by the coach Fernando Santosa man who ignored the entire and contemporary history of Portugal leaving the best soccer player in the history of soccer in that country on the substitute bench. It is incredible that Santos believed that everything ended with Switzerland. It went well for him in that game to include Goncalo Ramos and let Christian at the bank, but theoretically that was in retaliation for the attitude of Christian with South Korea.

However, the coach stands on that decision, believes that every day is carnival and leaves out the best footballer on the team. When he enters, 50 minutes into the game, with Portugal falling 1-0, he was the team’s most important player. He was the one who infected his companions. His attitude was to encourage and awaken his companions. he was telling joao felix that nothing happened when he was frustrated, he would pick them up, ask them to hurry up, he would quickly look for the ball so that the goalkeeper Bond will take out with dynamism. Ronaldo could not miss; only in the head of the technician could he do it and he did not give him the time, although he could have had it ronaldo in a one-on-one and could have had it Pepe with a head butt

Morocco gave the big surprise this Saturday and went to the semifinals. In the highlight of the day, two powers were seen as France and England in the Al Bayt Stadium. They were two teams with different characteristics. One was more homogeneous, more of a team, more cohesion, more speed, more dynamic, more dribbling; the other had individual hierarchy, long pitch, second play and trusting individualities. Today was not the day for Mbappé or Dembélé but, luckily for France, Olivier Giroud appeared.

Those paradoxes of fate… Giroud hadn’t scored a goal when France were champions and, until the semifinals of this tournament, he has been key. He is the team’s goalscorer along with Mbappé, who had his worst game today. In the highest trial by fire, Mbappé was not up to par. Giroud had a great game, as did the goalkeeper and captain, Hugo Lloris and Antoine Griezmann, the spare wheel who plays well in any position, also had an outstanding job.

Harry Kane he had a chance to tie it at the end, but his penalty went over the crossbar. He had already scored a partial equality, but when he had the chance to stretch the game to extra time he blew it over the goal. From there, England He no longer had arguments.

on one side, France against Morocco; of the other, Argentina versus Croatia. in the streets of Doha everyone believes that Argentina Y France They are the favorites for the keys, but it has been shown in this World Cup that games are not won before playing.
