English pacer Jofra Archer has a tweet for everything. If you have been on the Internet lately, you may have come across Archer's random live-tweets of matches from the past that somehow resurfaced online and fit perfectly in the matches of the commenced World Cup event that ended in a nerve-racking final between hosts England and New Zealand at Lord's on Sunday. After spooking out everyone with his supernatural powers and "predicting" the semi-final outcome between his team and Australia, it was a standalone tweet from the England pacer dated 2013 that sent chills down the spine on the Internet on the eve of World Cup final. What had he tweeted? "15 from the last." If this doesn't sum-up the nail-biting World Cup final, then we don't know what will. As luck would have it, after having bowled complete 100 overs on a sunny day at the Home of Cricket, the nervy final encounter ended in a baffling tie. New Zealand - 241. England - 241. Super Over, which hadn't seen the day in the … [Read more...] about Jofra Archer Had Predicted the Super Over Outcome in World Cup Final 6 Years Ago. Here’s Proof.

Struggling to find consistency in a winless campaign so far, the Indian football team needs nothing less than a win in its crunch World Cup qualifying round match against Afghanistan to be played in freezing temperatures on Thursday. India began the second round of the qualifiers with a narrow 1-2 defeat to higher-ranked Oman before a memorable goal-less draw against Asian champions Qatar in Doha in September. The good show in the first two matches raised hopes of a possible third round berth but a 1-1 draw against eastern neighbours Bangladesh in Kolkata on October 15 came as a dampener. Had it not been for Adil Khan’s last-gasp header (88th minute), Igor Stimac’s side would have utterly disappointed the capacity crowd at the Salt Lake Stadium that day. The team is now at fourth place in the Group E table with two points from three matches. With the runner-up in the five-team group not even assured of a third round slot, India cannot afford to lose against Afghanistan. The … [Read more...] about Inconsistent India face Afghanistan in crunch World Cup Qualifier match

Video PlayerClose By Xie Yuzhi MADRID, May 29 (Xinhua) -- Ten years ago, the Spanish national football team was about to embark on a period of unprecedented success, winning both the 2008 and 2012 European Championships as well as in the 2010 World Cup. Their unique brand of "tiki-taka" passing football won them many admirers, and ensured the team's place in footballing folklore. However, as Spain's core players began to age, the "invincible fleet" that once conquered the world began to fall from grace. At the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, they failed to advance from the group stage, suffering a humiliating 1-5 defeat to the Netherlands. And at the European Championships in France two years later, La Furia Roja was eliminated in the Round of 16 after losing 0-2 to Italy. After Vicente del Bosque resigned as national team manager, the Spanish Football Federation brought Julen Lopetegui in for the 2018 World Cup qualification. Lopetegui lived up to expectations and led the team to Russia … [Read more...] about World Cup Group B preview: Spain: Return of the king?
Video PlayerClose By He Leijing BEIJING, May 28 (Xinhua) -- Assuming talisman Mohamed Salah is fit in time for Egypt's first World Cup appearance since 1990, the Pharaohs will still have their chance to make a name in the global football showpiece. The Egyptian Football Association announced that the Liverpool forward Salah has not been ruled out for Russia 2018 after departing Saturday's Champions League final against Real Madrid with a left shoulder injury. This at least brings some hope to Egypt, which qualified for the World Cup for the first time in 28 years. Egypt has been a dominant force in African football throughout the years, but an entire generation of Egyptians was deprived of seeing the national team compete on the biggest stage. The wait was finally over, when star man Salah bagged the goal in a late penalty against DR Congo. Salah almost single handedly booked the place in Russia for Egypt. And this charismatic 25-year-old will undoubtedly provide a major boost on the … [Read more...] about World Cup Group A preview: Egypt pins World Cup hopes on Mohamed Salah
