World Cup 2022: Pele’s delicate health condition, the main motivation that makes Brazil the top favorite to win at Qatar 2022

In Brazil it is not all joy, of course advancing to the quarterfinals of the World Cup and the way they achieved it is very good, but Pele’s health has everyone worried, players and fans alike, who took out banners in the stadium to send good vibes to the legendary striker.

Before the match kicked off at the 974 Stadium between Brazil and South Korea, it was time for the official photo, and there the Amazonian team, led by Neymar, took out a banner with the image of Pel to dedicate the match to him.

But it was not only the players on the field, the thousands of fans in the stands also took out several banners alluding to their idol to wish a speedy recovery to the 82-year-old man who gave them three World Cup titles.

Brazil will have one more match in the World Cup in Qatar, and it will be against Croatia, so it is expected that they will take the field with another show of support so that O’Rei’s health improves in the last few days and he can enjoy the sixth World Championship in Brazil’s trophy cabinet.

Pel was the player who has won the World Cup the most times, as he was the key player for the “Canarinha” to win three of the six most coveted trophies in soccer, winning in Sweden 1958, Chile 1962 and Mexico 1970.

Neymar, for a milestone set by Pel

For now, Neymar wears the mythical #10 immortalized by the legendary Santos player and came within one goal of Pele’s record with Brazil by scoring from a penalty kick during his team’s spectacular 4-1 victory over South Korea in the round of 16 that has placed them as the top favorites to win the title in Qatar 2022.

Pel sends message to all his fans: “I feel strong and full of hope”

Soothing words came on Saturday from Brazil. Pel wanted to send a message to all his fans and he did it in person through his social media accounts. ‘O Rei’ also wanted to thank the medical staff for taking care of him. Also, he didn’t forget about the World Cup and his national team.

Pel sent the following message with a picture of the medical report from Albert Einstein Hospital in Brazil: “My friends, I want to keep everyone calm and positive. I’m strong, with a lot of hope and I follow my treatment as usual. I want to thank the entire medical and nursing team for all the care I have received. I have a lot of faith in God and every message of love I receive from you all over the world keeps me full of energy. And watch Brazil in the World Cup too! Thank you so much for everything.” said Pel through social media.

In the image shared by ‘O Rei’, we can see a medical report issued by Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo. Pel has been admitted to the hospital since last Tuesday. The medical staff explains he is undergoing a thorough review of the chemotherapy conducted on the colon tumor that was detected back in 2021.

This is what they wrote: “Edson Arantes do Nascimento was admitted to Albert Einstein Hospital on November 29 for a colon tumor chemotherapy evaluation, which was detected in 2021. He remains in treatment and his current health state is stable. He also had a good response to all cares of the respiratory infection he suffered. The patient hasn’t presented any decrease in his health for the last 24 hours.”

Everybody was alarmed on Tuesday when information of Pels delicate health got him admitted to the hospital. His daughter, however, quickly informed people through social media that her father was at the hospital in order to regulate his medication and there was no emergency at all.

Despite the concern generated by Pele‘s admission to the hospital the previous Tuesday, the considered best footballer of all time provided some reassurance to his followers, as he said that it is only a routine visit. And he did so in the middle of a tribute paid to him at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

It was on Tuesday when it became known that Edson Arantes do Nascimento “Pele” had entered a hospital in Sao Paulo, to reevaluate his treatment for cancer, and this Thursday the former player himself published a message on social networks in which he clarifies his situation.

“Friends, I am at the hospital making my monthly visit. It’s always nice to receive positive messages like this. Thanks to Qatar for this tribute, and to everyone who sends me good vibes,” the 82-year-old Brazilian wrote on his Instagram account.

That tribute to which Pele refers is the well-wishes that appeared in Qatar, host of the World Cup. His image appeared projected on some towers of the imposing city in which it could be read “Get well soon“.

Tite and Brazil to dedicate game against Cameroon to Pele

Brazil’s national team will play its third World Cup match this Friday against Cameroon, a match that will be dedicated to Pele, said coach Tite.

All of us want to wish good health to Pele, our greatest representative, the extraterrestrial who is terrestrial. Good health, our solidarity to everyone,” Tite said at the last conference before the match.

Medical report on Pele’s health condition

Pele was admitted to the Albert Einstein hospital, with a stable clinical condition, which was confirmed with a medical report.

“Edson Arantes do Nascimento was admitted yesterday (November 29) at the Albert Einstein Israelite Hospital for a re-evaluation of the chemotherapy treatment of the colon tumor identified in September 2021. After the medical evaluation, the patient was transferred to the common ward, without the need for admission to the semi-intensive care unit or ICU. The former player is in full control of his vital functions and is in stable clinical condition”.

World Cup 2022: Tom Brady and Germany with a joint curse: The worst moments in their history?

The fates of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and the German national team seem to be linked ever since the seven-time Super Bowl winner visited Munich a couple of weeks ago to play and win the first NFL regular season game in that European country.

TB12 and the Bucs faced the Cleveland Browns as part of NFL Week 12 at the same time that Germany was playing for its life against the Spanish national team as part of the second day of Group E at Qatar 2022, the results for both were not necessarily the best.

Tom Brady’s undefeated streak comes to an end

The former husband of Brazilian top model Gisele Bündchen snapped an unbeaten streak of 218 career games in which he went into the final two minutes with a lead of seven points or more by falling in overtime by a score of 23-17 to the Browns.

Meanwhile, Germany struggled to a 1-1 draw in the final minutes against Spain to stay alive ahead of the last day of the group stage, but now they must beat Costa Rica, because if they draw or lose they are eliminated.

It is worth remembering that since the 1938 World Cup in France, Germany had not gone without a victory in the first two games of the World Cup and if we take into account the three games they played in Russia 2018, they have only one win in their last five World Cup games after being crowned in Brazil 2014.

Tom Brady and Germany play for their lives next

Despite their 5-6 losing record, Tampa Bay still leads the NFC South, but things continue to get more complicated than ever in their 23-year run.

English striker Gary Lineker once said, “Soccer is an 11 vs. 11 sport where Germany always wins,” perhaps if he had been born in the United States he would say, “Football is an 11 vs. 11 sport where Tom Brady always wins,” and in both cases he would be wrong today.

World Cup 2022: Nike Footballverse: The best World Cup commercial reveals who is better: 2006’s Ronaldo or 2022’s Mbappe?

We are just a few days away from the start of the Qatar 2022 World Cup and different brands are doing their best to score a goal with the spectators. One of them is Nike, which released a spectacular commercial with a multiverse of soccer stars.

What is the Footballverse all about?

The incredible commercial is titled The FC Footballverse and begins with a one-on-one between Mbapp and Ronaldinho. In an almost 5-minute video, Nike brought together several soccer idols from the past few years who compete in “a scientific experiment” to see who is the best player among them all.

Stars such as Kylian Mbapp, Ronaldhino, Ronaldo, Cristiano Ronaldo and Alex Morgan are teleported into a laboratory to demonstrate their skills to the rhythm of the iconic 80s song Weird Science by Oingo Bongo.

Notably absent is another living soccer legend, Lionel Messi, but considering that Adidas, Nike’s historic rival, usually responds to these ads, we’d be surprised to see him in an ad.

Who’s involved in the Footballverse?

Things get out of hand and the scientists decide to rescue many more players from other eras, leaving a show that many would pay to see in real life. The cast of stars that appear is on par with Nike’s greatest productions, and the list is made up of none other than:

Cristiano Ronaldo (2022 and 2004 version).

Kylian Mbappe.

Ronaldo (2022, 2002 and 1998 versions).

Ronaldinho (2006 version).

Virgil Van Dijk.

Sam Kerr.

Kevin DeBruyne.

Leah Williamson.

Phil Foden.

Carli Lloyd (2015 version).

Christian Jr.

Shane Kluivert.

Edgar Davids (2000 version).

“Footballverse exemplifies Nike’s long-held belief that the future of sport has infinite potential, and encourages a new generation of footballers to prove it,” Nike said in a statement.

World Cup 2022: Julio Cesar Chavez, one of the only optimists on Mexico’s future in Qatar 2022

Although there is a lot of pessimism surrounding the Mexican National Team that will compete in the 2022 World Cup to be held in Qatar, support for the Mexican team comes from various sectors and personalities and a sign of confidence comes from Julio Cesar Chavez, who was excited about the team that will represent the country and from which he expects a historic performance and reach the coveted fifth match.

“I would not like the national team to fail. I would like us to go to the fifth game. Mexico is going to compete in the World Cup, because Mexicans grow. When they have a complicated opponent, they pull out all the stops like boxers,” said the three-time Mexican world champion in an interview with David Faitelson on Star+.

Julio Cesar Chavez’s taste for soccer

Because of the controversies created around the Mexican squad in recent weeks, its poor performance in recent months, particularly on offense, and because of the absence of players who, in the opinion of many, should be there, fans see little chance for Mexico, but the pugilism idol has full confidence in the Tricolor.

“As a Mexican, I have followed the national team. Sometimes it plays badly, then more or less, but in the World Cups it makes a leap in quality. Mexico always competes in the World Championships. It seems that they will not pass to the next round and they win favorites, they grow in adversity”, added the considered best Mexican boxer of all times.

Chvez acknowledges Mexican and world idols

He also took the opportunity to talk about national figures and world idols, his compatriots whom he admires and the best in the world in whom he would become.

“There have been great soccer players. Hugo (Sanchez), Rafael Marquez, Cuauhtemoc Blanco, Chicharito. Those who have triumphed in Europe I always respect,” Chavez said. “I would become Pele, Maradona and Messi. Maradona and Messi my respects, I met Maradona in Culiacn, my respects to him”.

Chicharito’s consolation prize, big contract with LA Galaxy after missing out on Mexico’s 2022 Qatar squad

It is now official, Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez will continue with the Los Angeles Galaxy for the 2023 season, after the MLS club confirmed on Monday the renewal of its top striker. The Mexican striker himself had already informed that with his numbers in 2022 he would agree to this clause and today the club ratified it.

“There were no negotiations, I have an automatic renewal clause when I reach 11 goals and have 60% of the minutes on the field,” Chicharito Hernandez said.

In fact, the Galaxy released a list of players who will remain on the roster by exercising their guaranteed contracts for 2023, including the former Manchester United and Real Madrid striker:

Those staying with the Galaxy in 2023

Goalkeeper Jonathan Bond; defenders Julian Araujo, Nick Depuy, Raheem Edwards, Marcus Ferkranus, Chase Gasper, Kelvin Leerdam and Jalen Neal; midfielders Efrain Alvarez, Gaston Brugman, Douglas Costa, Mark Delgado, Samuel Grandsir, Carlos Harvey and Riqui Puig; and forwards Kevin Cabral and Dejan Joveljic.

Highlights of Chicharito’s best goals

In addition, the LA Galaxy exercised renewal options with Martn Cceres and Sga Coulibaly, midfielders Daniel Aguirre, Jonathan Prez and Adam Saldaa and forward Preston Judd.

The franchise also reported that it is negotiating renewals with goalkeepers Jonathan Klinsmann and Richard Snchez, defender Eriq Zavaleta and midfielder Vctor Vzquez and waived its rights to defender Jorge Villafaa and midfielder Sacha Klejstan, who are out of contract.

Chicharito’s numbers in 2022

In the 2022 season, Javier Hernndez scored 17 goals and 2 assists in 30 games. He also scored one goal in four games in the US Open Cup. In total, Chicharito has scored 37 goals with the LA Galaxy.

The LA Galaxy finished fifth in the MLS Western Conference with 13 wins, seven draws and 12 losses (46 points in 32 games) and were eliminated in the Western Conference semifinals against eventual champions LAFC, falling in a thrilling game in the final minutes.

According to the Transfermarkt portal, Chicharito Hernandez’s transfer is worth two million euros. His highest value was 25 million euros, when he played for Bayer Leverkusen in 2016.

World Cup 2022: Tom Brady World Cup power ranking: Germany and Croatia at the top, Brazil and Costa Rica at the bottom

Tom Brady is the top star in NFL history, however, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t follow other sports, in fact, in his victory with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Sunday at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany, he had the best words from the home of Bundesliga’s Bayern and once in the past season break he visited Old Trafford to watch a Cristiano Ronaldo game with Manchester United.

So we at Marca English got to speculate a bit now that the Qatar 2022 World Cup is starting, which would be the GOAT’s favorite national teams or which ones are down on this list.

Clarification for the reader: It is clear to us that your favorite team is the United States, as you have always shown your love for Team USA, the rest is mere speculation.

Favorite Team (Option #1): Germany

Tom Brady met Germany for the first time in his life last weekend, his smile was noticeable with the thrilling win against the Seattle Seahawks in week 10, he surely has a good feeling about the four-time world champion Mannschaft.

Favorite Team (Option #2): Croatia

After a few years of estrangement, last week included love phrases with his former head coach with the New England Patriots, Bill Belichick, who has family roots in this white country that finished as runner-up in the last World Cup in Russia 2018.

Not Favorite Team (Option #1): Brazil

While the divorce with Brazilian top model, Gisele Bündchen, was amicable, it is clear that suffering and sadness has invaded TB12 in the last months of separation with his ex-wife with whom he was married for 13 years. As a couple, the seven-time Super Bowl winner and the former Victoria’s Secret Angel were never able to enjoy together one of the five world championships of the “Scratch du Oro”.

Not Favorite Team (Option #2): Costa Rica

Not only this Central American country is the resting place of his ex-wife, even this Monday Gisele Bündchen was photographed in this place with what is believed to be his new partner, Joaquim Valente, although he has not confirmed it, surely they were not the favorite photographs of the 45-year-old player.

Tom Brady in danger? Bayern Munich injury curse haunts the legendary QB

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has played in dozens of different stadiums throughout his career, however, he has never played where he will this Sunday as his team will have the honor of hosting the Seattle Seahawks in the first NFL regular season game in Germany.

Bayern Munich complete Mane signing

The Bayern Munich curse

The game will take place at the Allianz Arena, home of the most winning team in the history of the Bundesliga and one of the biggest in the world, FC Bayern Munich, however, this fairy tale has a dark side, as in the last two games of this German giant two of its best players have left with worrying injuries.

Alphonso Davies breaks down in tears at Canada’s return to the World Cup

In the first instance, Canadian left back Alphonso Davies had to leave the match against Hertha Berlin due to a fibrillar rupture that initially seemed to cost him his participation in the World Cup in Qatar 2022, however, after undergoing further tests, the Maple Leaf’s best player will be present at the world’s top soccer tournament.

Will Sadio Mane miss the World Cup?

Tom Brady: “That was f***ing awesome”

Unfortunately, it seems that the same fate will not befall one of the world’s star strikers, Sadio Mane, who looks set to miss out on playing for Senegal in Qatar 2022 after having to leave the game against Werder Bremen with a knee tendon problem.

Mane’s absence has not been made official, but it is unlikely that he will see him at the World Cup despite being the man who secured his team’s last-gasp passage to the tournament, which begins on November 20.

Brady is clearly the most famous and important player who will be present at the Allianz Arena this Sunday, but recent events are not necessarily the best news for the seven-time Super Bowl winner.

Guardiola says it was an ‘honour’ to manage ‘big game’ Pique

Since Gerard Pique announced on Thursday that he would be retiring from football after this weekend’s La Liga game week, thousands of tributes have poured in from both former teammates, fellow players, managers and fans.

Pep Guardiola has been the latest manger to heap praise on Pique and his outstanding career.

“I wish him the best personally, and my affection to him. A player for the big games. He’d never miss one, or perform badly at the highest level against the top, top teams. That is what all the big clubs need: these types of players. He won everything, with Barcelona, the Spanish national team…And yeah, it was an honor, for me, personally, to be his manager. We spent an incredible four years together.”

It was an honor, for me, personally, to be his manager. We spent an incredible four years together.

Guardiola managed Pique for four years at Barcelona which was one of the most successful and decorated periods in the club’s history. In 2009, the team wrote themselves into the annals of football history forever: the Catalan giants won an unprecedented six trophies– all the possible titles they could have won.

Pique played a total of 615 games for Barca, scoring 52 goals. In that time, he won eight LaLiga titles and three Champions Leagues during his 14-year spell.

Pique also won 102 caps for Spain and was a key part of the side that won the FIFA World Cup in 2010 and the UEFA European Championship in 2012.
