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.
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.
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?
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.
