Klopp said that its price could “be a problem” at the beginning of December 2019 but the signing of the agreement with Nike in January this year to be the technical sponsor at a rate of 94 million euros per year would appear as a liquidity injection that It would allow you to undertake your signing.Since arriving in Germany from the Manchester City Academy, Jadon Sancho is being one of the best young soccer players in Europe.

Soler was also who else ran in San Siro a little over a week ago and also completed the same recoveries as Diakhaby in San Sebastián.Although it is a less striking work, although Soler starred in the important goals against Chelsea, Celta or Real Madrid, the technician has shown value. Proof of this is that since he returned from the injury He has been a starter in every game, including the Super Cup, the Champions League and the Cup. And only in five of 18 Celades decided to replace him. One of the players who, a priori, seemed to benefit from the arrival of Albert Celades to Valencia was Carlos Soler. The canterano had to adapt to play in the band with Marcelino and although that allowed him to adopt new faculties, the signing of the new technician seemed to return him to a more advanced position and hook with the strikers, his natural place until he reached the elite and where he could shine more. Nothing could be further from the truth. And is that the Valencianist Not only has he continued in the band, but he has had to adapt to the left side and play changed leg.

Everyone by 1991 had matured and joined other talents such as Darko Pancev, Dejan Savicevic, and Sinisa Mihailovic.Based on Red Star, Yugoslavia completed a brilliant qualifying phase for the 1992 European Championship in Sweden. In Group 4, alongside Denmark, Northern Ireland, Austria and the Faroe Islands, they won seven games and lost one to become the team. highest scorer with 24 goals. Nevertheless, that generation of great soccer players could not participate in the tournament.In 1990, conflicts between the various republics that formed Yugoslavia made the outbreak of a war practically inevitable, which finally began in 1991 with the brief conflict in Slovenia that gave way to the war in Croatia and its extension to Bosnia. The UN intervened and on May 30, 1992 issued resolution 757 in which, among other opinions, it sanctioned the Yugoslav government by preventing the participation of its athletes in international competitions.The Euro Cup, which was to start on June 10, condemned Yugoslavia, which was already concentrated to participate in the tournament.

In the end, UEFA decreed the expulsion of Spain from the Euro Cup and the classification of the Soviet Union, then champion, for the next phase.

The draw revealed that Albania and Greece had to face each other, on Hellenic soil on June 21, 1962 and in Tirana on March 31, 1963. Neither party came to be held because Greece withdrew.The relations of both countries were always complicated. The border between the two is over the historical region of Epirus, the object of dispute between both states. In 1913, northern Epirus with a Hellenic ethnic minority became part of Albania. The south, with Albanian communities, was left for Greece.World War II distanced the link between the two countries. Albania, occupied by Italy, served as a bridge to attack Greece, which stopped the transalpine army. Germany helped its ally and finally caused the fall of Athens until 1944, when Hitler’s troops left the Hellenic country. After the conflict, Greece suffered a civil war that was won by Pro-NATO forces, which claimed the northern territory of Epirus and expelled the southern Albanian population accused of collaborating with the Italian-German occupation regime.The state of war started in 1940 was maintained during the following decades and it was this conflict that motivated Greece not to play in 1962 and 1963 against Albania, which went on to the next round due to the withdrawal of its rival to be eliminated by Denmark.last_img read more
