Cheap Uruguay Soccer Jerseys China

The first issue of World Soccer magazine, published in 1960, contained a two-page spread about what was termed the greatest match ever played: the semifinal of the 1954 World Cup, in which, after extra time, Hungary beat Uruguay 4-2.

When Hungary reopened their national stadium this week, now named after the great Ferenc Puskas, the choice of opponents was obvious. And so it was Cheap Uruguay Soccer Jerseys China who lined up in Budapest on Thursday.


Tabarez’s Uruguay is becoming a global force

From the Hungarian point of view, the link to 1954 brings back a wistful sadness. Back then, Hungary had the best team in the world, one of the greatest ever. With Puskas rampant, they notched a famous 6-3 win over England at Wembley in 1953 and followed it a few months later with a 7-1 thrashing in the original version of the newly reconstructed stadium in Budapest. The one time they slipped up was in the match after their epic win over the Uruguayans, when on a heavy pitch they were surprised by West Germany and went down to a 3-2 defeat.

Until recently, the match was a reason for wistful sadness for Uruguayans as well. They were the reigning world champions, and they had never before lost a World Cup match. They were right up there at the top table of the global game.

Hungary fell back soon afterward, especially in the aftermath of the political turmoil of 1956, when Puskas and many of his colleagues defected. They have never been back.

Uruguay also slipped into decline. Quarterfinalists in 1966, they battled their way through to the semis four years later, but then, hampered by a population little greater than three million, they fell further into mediocrity. They failed to qualify for three consecutive World Cups between 1974 and 1982, missed out again in 1994 and 1998, and fell to Australia in the 2006 intercontinental playoff. In between, La Celeste made little impression on the occasions they did qualify in 1986, 1990 and 2002.

But Uruguay’s story follows a different route from that of Hungary — and much of that has to do with a man who, as a 7-year-old, has vivid memories of listening to the radio broadcast of that dramatic 1954 semifinal.

Oscar Washington Tabarez has become the first coach in the history of the game to be in charge of the same national team for 200 matches. His second spell with Uruguay, which started in 2006, has surpassed all expectations, restoring the Sky Blues to their previous status as one of the most respected sides on the planet.

The reasons for this were clear in Thursday’s 2-1 victory in the Ferenc Puskas stadium. Tabarez has continually managed to refresh his team with graduates from the magnificent youth development project that he implemented. The Under-20 side serves as a superb production line for the seniors. Going into the last World Cup — in which Uruguay were statistically the best South American representative — Tabarez rejigged his midfield, introducing a collection of talented ball players well able to give the team more controlled possession.

Since Russia 2018, the constant renewal process has improved the team’s play down the flanks. Left-back Matias Vina set up the first goal against Hungary, curling a wonderful cross behind the defensive line that invited a finish from Cheap Edinson Cavani Jersey China. A pair of wingers have come in, Brian Lozano and 19-year-old LAFC signing Cheap Brian Rodriguez Jersey China, who scored the second with a well-placed shot, his third goal in five matches.

Lozano and Rodriguez played in recent friendlies in which the strike duo of Cavani and Cheap Luis Suarez Jersey China was missing, allowing the team to experiment with a 4-3-3 system. With both strikers available against Hungary, Uruguay reverted to 4-4-2 with a pair of wingers and chalked up another victory. They have not been beaten this year — they were knocked out of the Copa America on a penalty shootout — and look in fine shape to begin the coming set of World Cup qualifiers, which get underway in March 2020.

There is one more test before then: Monday’s game in Israel against Argentina, a team whose 1-0 win over Brazil on Thursday prolongs the good phase they have enjoyed since the Copa America. Of the friendlies involving South American sides the next few months, Argentina against Uruguay is the clear pick of the bunch.

Uruguay will come out of it seeking to make more history in the coming tournaments, adding to a list of glories that includes the epic 1954 semifinal against Hungary.

Kylian Mbappe came off the bench to score a second half hat-trick and inspire Cheap Paris Saint-Germain Jerseys China to a commanding 5-0 victory at Cheap Club Brugge Jerseys China in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The win kept up their 100% record in Group A with the French team on nine points at the halfway mark and on the cusp of qualification for the next phase, a comfortable five points ahead of second placed Real Madrid.

Mbappe became the fifth youngest player with a hat trick in Champions League history at 20 years, 306 days and the fourth substitute to score three goals in a UCL game. With his first goal, the France international also became the youngest player to score 15 career UEFA Champions League goals, eclipsing the record set by Barcelona star Lionel Messi. Messi was 21 years and 289 days old when he scored his 15th UCL goal in a 4-0 quarterfinal first leg win over Bayern Munich in April 2009.

Cheap Kylian Mbappe Jersey China UCL’s quickest hat tricks: Sterling joins Ronaldo, Neymar on list

Cheap Mauro Icardi Jersey China put PSG into a seventh minute lead but it was only after World Cup winner Mbappe, working his way back after a hamstring injury, came on early in the second half that they clicked into gear.

“I wanted to start. I thought I would start. The coach chose otherwise, which I had to accept. I wanted to show it it is difficult to do without me,” Mbappe said. “When I was not there, the others did well. Football is a passion and to go without playing for two months was painful. I want to play every match and score goals.

“My injury is now gone, so I thank the medical staff. This was not a win for Kylian, but a win for PSG.”

PSG’s opener was simply done with a long ball over the top from skipper Cheap Thiago Silva Jersey China to find Angel di Maria, who in turn slipped a square pass for his fellow Argentine to convert.

Mbappe came on shortly after half-time and within nine minutes had PSG further ahead.

His quick footwork set up Di Maria for a square pass that Brugge goalkeeper Cheap Simon Mignolet Jersey China got a hand to, serving only to pop it up in the air for a quick-thinking Mbappe to head back over him and into the net.

Mbappe then set up the third for Icardi two minutes later after a defensive slip.

Di Maria was again the provider as Mbappe made it 4-0 in the 79th minute and then completed the quickest hat trick by a substitute in Champions League history four minutes later.

On both occasions it was the pace of the 20-year-old in carving his way past the Brugge defence and his deft finishing that underlined his prowess.

Club Brugge have two points from their three group games and go to Paris for their next Champions League match on Nov. 6.
