Fury Issues Warning To Ronaldo
World Boxing Council (WBC) heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has warned Cristiano Ronaldo that time waits for no man after insisting the Portugal star is 'on the slide'. Fury, who is also a fan of Manchester United, has compared Ronaldo to Wladimir Klitschko at the end of the Ukrainian's boxing career. Ronaldo has been dropped to the bench in recent times for both United and most recently against Switzerland in the last-16 of the World Cup for Portugal. Fury told talkSport that he thought beating Klitschko in 2015 was the 'Everest' but admitted that other factors such as age come into a sportsman's career. “In this game it's not about how much better somebody is than the other person, a lot of it has to do with natural stuff, like age, and at 39-years old you are on the decline, whether you want to admit it or not. “If you look at Cristiano Ronaldo, he's 37 years old, he's had the best doctors, the best physiotherapists, he's lived like an egg in Mr Kipling's cake. “But even Ronaldo is on the slide now, so even someone who has looked after himself like that, it catches up to you… so imagine a boxer who has been punched to pieces for the last 20 years. “The age factor will not wait for anybody, no matter how you've lived. “Whether you've never had a drink in your life, if you've never run on any hard surfaces, no matter who you are, age will get you eventually.” The post Fury Issues Warning To Ronaldo appeared first on Complete Sports.

PSG’s Mbappé, Messi And Neymar Lead Their National Teams In Qatar
Qatar world cup 2022 has a host of stars gracing the global soccer showpiece. Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) Football Club has sent big names in the form of Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi, and Neymar da Silva Santos Junior. This trio represents France, Argentina, and Brazil, respectively. PSG benefits from a sponsorship deal with HFM, a multi-asset regulated and licensed global broker that offers access to the popular Metatrader4 trading platform. These teams have already booked places in the knockout stages. They’re the main contenders in a tournament filled with competitive teams. Messi led Argentina to the world cup following a 36-game unbeaten run. On the other hand, Neymar plays a pivotal role in a fearsome Brazil. France also stands a good chance of retaining the coveted trophy, thanks to its star-studded team, including the ever-green Kylian. Mbappé, Messi, and Neymar dominated sporting headlines for their impressive performances at the club level. They helped transform an ailing football club into a flourishing side that sends shockwaves in the top French league. This fact heightened expectations that the stars would light up the tournament, and they didn’t disappoint. At PSG, the trio scored 46 goals in the club’s recent 22 matches, making the team a major contender to win the Champions League. Their superb form meant that soccer fans expected to see fireworks in games involving France, Argentina, and Brazil. The best part is that Mbappé has shone for France, allowing the squad to inch closer to retaining the trophy it won in Russia 2018. Lionel Messi turns on the magic Although Argentina had a shock start to the world cup after suffering a defeat at the hands of Saudi Arabia, the team recovered to qualify for the knockout stages. It took control of its fate by beating Mexico two nil. Messi scored one of the goals as he lit up the global showpiece and delighted fans around the world. The Argentine is aware that Qatar 2022 is his last world cup. So, he needs to make his presence felt. In Qatar, many local and international fans are keen to see the striker turn on the magic and win the tournament for his country.

In the past, he failed to spark at the 2014 tournament due to a nagging injury. At the 2018 showpiece, Neymar’s Brazil reached the quarter-finals. He went through a better season at the club level than the previous ones. In the past, injuries affected his career. Thankfully, he looks fitter and sharper, setting the stage for a good world cup. Mbappé lights up the world Kylian Mbappé stands shoulders above his compatriots when it comes to winning the world cup. He comes to the 2022 edition looking to repeat the 2018 dream run. The triumph helped the world notice many French players, particularly Mbappé’s extraordinary talent. What made the striker’s contribution special was that he was still a teenager. It’s no surprise that PSG owners made him a lucrative offer. By doing so, the club prevented Real Madrid from snatching the talented player. The striker reportedly gets more than $650 million for his services as part of a three-year contract with the club. During the 2018 world cup, Mbappé played an instrumental role in knocking out Messi’s Argentina in the knockout stage. As for the 2022 edition, there’s still a possibility of a clash between France and Argentina. Neymar’s Brazil may also face off with Argentines to determine who progresses to the next stages. Mbappé helped prop up the French team when they faced a stubborn Denmark. If it weren’t for Mbappé’s prowess in front of goal, the result could have easily gone Denmark’s way. The striker rose to the occasion when the Danish defense machinery thwarted a barrage of French attacks. He scored two goals to give Le Blues a hard-earned 2 – 1 victory. As the trio continues to march towards the final with their respective national teams, it remains to be seen who will be the last man standing at Qatar 2022. Kylian stands a good chance of retaining the trophy thanks to the depth of talent in the French squad. He’s surrounded by seasoned players capable of beating any team at the tournament, including Brazil and Argentina.

World’s Oldest Footballer Set To Join Portuguese Club At 55
Former Japan international, Kazu Miura, who is the world's oldest footballer, has signed for a new club to continue his 36-year career. Miura, 55, who spent a decade starring for the Japanese national team, began his professional career back in 1986 with Brazilian side Santos. Since then he has moved teams on 14 occasions - but had spent 17 years with Yokohama FC before being loaned out to Suzuka Point Getters earlier this year. And according to Nikkan Sport, Miura is now set to join Portuguese second tier outfit Oliveirense. Miura was spotted at the airport heading to Portugal on Wednesday ahead of the move. He shot to stardom in the early 90s when he beat England legend Gary Lineker, who played for Grampus Eight, to the J-League's most valuable player award. Miura bagged 117 goals in 192 appearances for Verdy Kawasaki and was named Asian Footballer of the Year in 1992 - beating Lineker to the prize. That led to a loan move to Italian side Genoa followed by a permanent switch to Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia.

Next up came a five-year stint with Vissel Kobe, before he moved to Yokohama in 2005. Miura also spent a decade playing for Japan between 1990 and 2000, scoring a sensational 55 goals in 89 appearances. But he remarkably never made it to a World Cup as Japan failed to qualify in 1994 and he was then controversially left out of their squad for the 1998 tournament. The veteran attacker revealed earlier this year he plans to carry on playing until he is 60. The post World’s Oldest Footballer Set To Join Portuguese Club At 55 appeared first on Complete Sports.
