Mexico: Ochoa, Rodriguez, Marquez, Herrera, Layun, Dos Santos (Jimenez 84), Moreno, Guardado, Peralta (Hernandez 73), Aguilar, Vazquez Brazilians, meanwhile, will be expecting much more of their side. 17/06/2014 Upd. at 23:07 They nearly netted early after the restart, with Bernard, on for Ramires, firing a cross which whipped past the goal and the waiting Fred. Neymar and Co were frustrated by Mexico in an entertaining draw in Fortaleza. Referee: Cuneyt Cakir (Turkey). Rik Sharma Ramires went in the book for a clumsy foul and then Brazil went in for the break, knowing they had to up their game in the second half. Scolari’s selection garnered the first half it merited, a turgid, battling affair. The goalkeeper had a magnificent game but Silva should have buried it. Brazil: Julio Cesar, Dani Alves, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Marcelo, Paulinho, Fred (Jo 67), Neymar, Oscar (Willian 84), Ramires (Bernard 46), Luiz Gustavo As it was, things remained goalless and it means that if either Croatia or Cameroon win on Wednesday night, then the other will be eliminated. It was Mexico who had the game’s final chance, Andres Guardado firing narrowly over from the right, a shot which nearly dipped beyound Cesar. Brazil opted to bring in Chelsea midfielder Ramires for the injured Hulk, a defensive move. The match opened up further in the second half, with Jo dragging a shot wide and Mexico forcing Julio Cesar into a few smart saves. CEST But the game was escaping Brazil and they became desperate, with the frustration clearly showing. Match facts Neymar nearly opened the scoring midway through the first period, his header superbly saved by Mexican stopper Guillermo Ochoa at his near post. Booked: Aguilar, Vazquez. Ramires joined Luis Gustavo in the centre, along with Paulinho, while Oscar, Neymar and Fred foraged further upfield. It was the best chance of the half, with the rest being a scrappy tussle between two teams that should have been able to serve up far better. Luiz Felipe Scolari had clearly been worried by Croatia’s chances in the first game so went for the conservative option, when Willian or Bernard would have been more appropriate options. Silva put in a dreadful tackle on Javier Hernandez, which could have earned him more than a booking. Booked: Ramires, Silva. The formation was changed too, a 4-3-3 rather than the 4-2-3-1 used in the first match. Brazil should have taken the lead before the interval when Ochoa performed more heroics to keep them at bay, when Paulinho shot at goal following a chested pass by Thiago Silva. Then minutes later his header from point blank range was superbly saved by Ochoa.
The 28-year-old now turns his attention to helping Juve secure the Champions League next season, a trophy that has eluded the Bianconeri for the past 20 years. 28/07/2016 Upd. at 21:57 “I had no relationship with him and didn’t want to be associated with him any longer,” Higuain stated. After playing three seasons in Naples, ‘El Pipita’ thanked the Napoli supporters, coach Maurizio Sarri and his team-mates and even asked for forgiveness over his controversial move to Turin for 90 million euros. CEST But when confronted about De Laurentiis, the former Real Madrid striker wasn’t so friendly, with some suggesting that the Italian’s attitude was detrimental in the Argentinian’s departure. Mar Bianchi Gonzalo Higuain has been unveiled as Juventus’ latest summer addition and admitted that he was happy to end his ties with Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis. “Obviously it’s a dream [to win the Champions League] and we will work all year to achieve this goal,” he concluded.
The operation went as planned but the player will miss the start of the Bundesliga and the first games of the group stages of the Champions League due to his three month layoff. The player had been linked with Manchester City but this injury and City’s activity in the transfer market make this extremely unlikely now. 25/07/2017 Juan Bernat, operado de urgencia Sport EN Upd. on 26/07/2017 at 04:01 CEST The defender left the club’s Asian tour and returned to Munich, where he was examined before being operated on by Dr Markus Walther.

29/02/2020 From that moment, Collado’s involvement has grown and he’s been involved with the squad, coming off the bench at Valencia, and is now going to get his first taste of a Clasico. CET Upd. at 17:16 It may seem anecdotal but it isn’t. Alex Collado has been named in the Barcelona squad for Sunday’s Clasico at the Santiago Bernabeu against Real Madrid while Riqui Puig will have to conform with playing for the B team against Orihuela earlier in the day. Setien backed Riqui when he first took charge in January. In fact, in his first two games (against Granada and Ibiza), he used him. But, curiously, in the Copa del Rey game against Ibiza when Riqui started, he was not as his best and many blamed him for switching off in the build-up to Ibiza’s goal. Collado le gana la partida a Riqui Puig Sport IN SPORT.ES It seems clear that coach Quique Setien currently prefers Collado to Puig. As the coach himself explained in an interview with La Vanguardia, in which he praised Puig’s technical quality, he feels the young midfielder still has to work on the defensive side of his game and his reading of matches.
