Last minute madness! Germany is in the final

Germany had to wait for 90 minutes to reach the final of the European Under-21 thanks to their goalscorer, Waldschmidt, who transformed a foul. His seventh goal in four games, almost nothing. The Germans had to suffer a lot against a good Romania in which Puscas and Hagi were protagonists.

The match started well for the Germans, who after the first of the four strikes due to the heat, made the 1-0 in a led back and ended by Amiri. A little that, interestingly, woke the Romanians, who took a step forward. Just three minutes later, Puscas made the draw and opened the best minutes of the Romanians. The striker himself, on the edge of the break, made the second with a good header in a play that started Hagi with a good game change. But it was a mistake by Hagi himself who cleared the German road in the second act. The Romanian committed an innocent punishment for a grip that Waldschmidt transformed.

All the good Romanian sensations evaporated and Germany began to grow. Little by little he had longer possessions and imposed his game. After several failed occasions, the clearest of Nmecha in minute 85, would come the phrase. Again, Waldschmidt, with a low shot that slid between the barrier, made it 3-2 and knocked down the Romanians, who even fit in the fourth, through Amiri in another foul.

The Barça is without rivals: PSG and City deny that they will sign Griezmann


  • The departure of Griezmann unleashes the transfer market.
  • Enrique Cerezo: “More than angry, I’m disappointed.”

FC Barcelona is still the team most likely to hire Antoine Griezmann, who this week announced his departure from Atlético de Madrid at the end of the season.

One of the teams with whom Griezmann had been linked is the PSG.

However, his coach, Thomas Tuchel, has denied his interest on Friday: “Griezmann could play in any team in the world and would like any coach, but it is not realistic,” said the German coach, who believes that the PSG should be strengthened with more defensive profile players to opt, at last, to really compete for the Champions League.

Another that is self-discarded in the bid is Manchester City, by mouth of his coach. In his appearance before the final of the FA Cup, which disputes this Saturday at Wembley against Watford, Pep Guardiola has reassured his former fans: “Do not worry about Barcelona, ​​we are not going to sign Griezmann. We can not afford it, “he declared.

The new Champions would be in the hands of the richest clubs


The proposal of the new Champions League favors the richest clubs from the year 2024
The most modest teams and domestic competitions could be relegated

The project of the new Champions League, from the year 2024, could be in the hands of the richest clubs in Europe, as revealed by ‘The New York Times’.

The proposal of the new Champions goes through a tournament that would start in 2024 and would allow the 24 best teams in a Champions League of a total of 32 to automatically qualify for the next season, guaranteeing their participation and the tens of millions of euros in television revenue.

In this way, the competition would be dominated by an elite group formed by the richest clubs and would leave only four of its 32 seats available to teams considered small.

This new Champions would also consider the domestic competitions of each country almost irrelevant, a situation that has already created a confrontation between the own teams of the Premier League, LaLiga, Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1.

Substantial changes are focused on a longer group stage, with four groups of eight teams qualifying for the next round the best four and looking for more matches between elite clubs on even weekend dates, reserved for national leagues.

The champions of the low profile leagues, such as the Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal and Eastern Europe, would be relegated to a second level of 32 teams and there would even be a third division with 64 teams, something that has already motivated the concern of the small and medium clubs, upset by the fact that the biggest clubs in Europe monopolize the biggest financial prizes.
“We are open to a constructive dialogue to reform European football, together with other stakeholders, but if this is the project on the table, then the margins for negotiations are very limited,” Javier Tebas, president of LaLiga, announced. ‘The Times’.
