Pen Fun Club wuxiaworld.online, the fastest update of the latest chapter of the all-round athlete!
Whether the national team has the strength to play in the World Cup, Zhang Guan can't be more clear.
There are only 32 teams that can participate in the World Cup. If they are really ranked in terms of strength, no team in Asia can enter the World Cup. Fortunately, the World Cup selection system will take care of all continents, so only countries in Asia and Africa can enter the World Cup finals.
For Asian countries, even if they enter the World Cup, they often go home after three games in the group stage. Few are able to enter the knockout stage. This is still the top strong team in Asia. The strength of the Chinese team in Asia can only be regarded as the midstream, to be honest, it does not have the level to play the World Cup.
Although today's Chinese team luckily entered the World Cup, it is impossible to go further in the World Cup. In terms of grouping, the Chinese team may have a chance to defeat Nigeria, but it is basically impossible to defeat the old European football team such as Poland, let alone the world's top Brazil team.
With the strength of the Brazilian team, it is normal to play a kick, 4-0 or 5-0 against the Chinese team. If the Brazilian team takes it seriously, it will play 10-10 against China. No one is surprised. And even if Zhang Guan plays the striker no matter how powerful it is, he can achieve a hat trick on the Brazilian team's head, which is considered to be the limit. If calculated in this way, the score of 10 to 3, China is still a disastrous defeat.
Moreover, on the stage of the World Cup, there are many teams of the same level as Brazil. Even if other teams are not as sharp as Brazil, but their strength is far better than the Chinese team. The two or three goals Zhang Guan desperately scored, others You can pull it back in minutes.
Zhang Guan appeared in the forward position, which can easily crush the back line of Asian teams. However, in the face of world-class strong teams, Zhang Guan scored alone, much less than the speed of the Chinese team's back line.
In football, every position is important, but the position that best determines the outcome of the game is undoubtedly the goalkeeper.
When playing a striker, although it is easiest to score a goal, there is a premise that the opponent needs to pass the ball to himself. Even Messi, no one passes the ball to him. In the Asian arena, Zhang Guan can also receive the pass of his teammates, but on the stage of the World Cup, Zhang Guan dare not guarantee this, maybe the Chinese team will not even have many opportunities to get the ball.
But the goalkeeper is different. The goalkeeper doesn't need the teammate's response. Second, it doesn't need to be integrated into the coordination of tactics. A super goalkeeper can also affect the whole game. In the final analysis, the winning or losing of the football game is to see more goals, even if the strength is crushed, but in the end, the advantage cannot be converted into a goal, but it is just to useless work, and the goalkeeper is the one who can turn all advantages into useless work. people.
Not losing the ball in the World Cup, this is Zhang Guan set himself a goal. This goal is not a fantasy. Kahn, Buffon, Casillas and other top world goalkeepers have all played in the World Cup without conceding the ball.
The news that Zhang Guan changed to kicking the goalkeeper is still under confidentiality. It was not until the national football team announced the list before the World Cup, did people find out that Zhang Guan's name actually appeared in the position of the goalkeeper.
"Really? Zhang Guan kicked the goalkeeper!" The news caused a sensation in China again.
In fact, many goalkeepers are forwards. Forward players are often tall, strong, explosive, fast, and responsive, which is the same as the goalkeeper's requirements, and the striker is the best position to score a goal. Changing the goalkeeper is equivalent to knowing oneself and knowing the other.
However, Zhang Guan, as the sharpest knife in the national team's offensive, has to change the goalkeeper, but many people can not understand, originally everyone was still talking about Zhang Guan can score a few goals in the World Cup, and this news came out, then It's all miserable.
"Zhang Guan went on to be a goalkeeper, and thought that our Chinese team could break the World Cup goal shortage, and it looked like nothing happened!"
On June 17, 2018, Group E ushered in the first round of the contest. At the Rostov-on-Don Stadium, the first match of the Chinese team faced the world's most powerful Brazilian team!
Brazil's internal atmosphere seems very relaxed, facing the Chinese team, they did not even do any tactical preparation. The head coach of the Brazilian team also did not make tactical arrangements. He felt that in the face of an Asian team, there was no need to arrange any tactics so that players could play freely.
In the player channel, Neymar looked at the Chinese players standing in a row next to him. He knew nothing but Zhang Guan, but Paulinho was chatting with several Chinese players.
"Zhang Guan is a goalkeeper. There was news that he was a striker, how did he become a goalkeeper?" Neymar pouted indifferently. Neymar felt that no matter who the opponent's goalkeeper was, he was able to score the ball. .
"Try to score three or four goals in the first half, and you can probably be substituted for the rest in the second half, check in early and close the work, go to the nearby nightclub to see if there are beautiful Russian chicks!" Neymar thought silently.
Russia is closer to China, so a lot of Chinese spectators came to the scene. They have already gathered together, waving the national flag, and turning half of the auditorium into a red ocean.
As for the audience from Brazil, there are not many. After all, Brazil is still far from Russia. However, after all, Brazil is a star-studded crowd. Many Russian local audiences know Brazils stars. They become fans of Brazil and cheer for Brazil. However, after all, they are not their own teams. The Russian audience is obviously not as good. Chinese audience.
Of the 11 players who started in the Chinese team, none of them was a serious forward, but a forward midfielder. His position is also relatively low. As for the other players, they have shrunk in their own half. After the kick-off, the Chinese team also kept passing in their own half and had no intention of attacking.
"The Chinese team didn't plan to attack at all, and they had to defend in the end! Ridiculous, don't you think that if you only attack without defending, you can even us? Let you know immediately that we have a thousand ways to score goals!" Neymar Lengheng, led the team over the board.
In this kind of scene, the Brazilian team really sees too much. Over 90% of the countries in the world encounter the Brazilian team hoping to smooth the game. Only a few countries dare to challenge Brazilian football. Even those enthusiastic South American countries will turn into a shrinking turtle when they encounter Brazil, instead of going crazy.
At this stage of the group stage, no one intends to take all three points on the Brazilian team, and can score 1 point in peace. It has become the best result in the face of the Brazilian team. The Brazilian opponents put up a pair of iron barrels to defend. Instead, it became the most normal choice.
For the Brazilian team, breaking the opponent's shrinking defense is like commonplace.
I saw that the Brazilian team players were very skillful and began to press heavily, putting pressure on the Chinese team's transmission ball. There is indeed a gap in the strength of the players on both sides. Before long, the Chinese team's pass was cut off by the Brazilian team.
As soon as Brazil got the ball, it was a big-footed pass. Neymar scored straight, and obviously did not look at the Chinese team's defensive players. However, the defensive system of the Chinese team exceeded Neymar's expectations. The two defenders rushed up at the same time, and forced Neymar's passing errors one after another.
Coach Lippi is a coach who very much pursues the overall operation of the team and is also a coach that pays more attention to defense. It can be called a defensive master level coach. The team he advised tends to be tough on defense. Although the defense is sometimes ugly, the effect is really good.
The Brazilian team basically did not arrange tactical details today. On the court, basically relying on the tacit understanding and play of the Brazilian players themselves. In terms of personal strength, the Brazilian players face the Chinese players. Without arranging detailed tactics, relying solely on the personal abilities of the stars, the Chinese team, which is still suppressed, can't stand up.
Everyone in the Chinese team retreated to their own half to defend, relying on the advantage of many people, and with some fouls, they even contained the Brazilian team's offense in a short time.
This is also related to the Brazilian team playing more casually. For the Brazilian team, it is not a big deal to personally show a little indulgence and lose a few chances after getting the ball. Anyway, scoring is only a matter of time. For example, Neymar, now I am very happy to play, all kinds of kung fu play, Chinese players playing around.
However, the Brazilian team did not score a goal. The Chinese team tried to compress the defensive space as much as possible to prevent the Brazilian team from shooting. The two or three-footed attempt by the Brazilian team either missed the shot or it was not powerful, and was given by Zhang Guan. Rotten down.
After 20 minutes of play, the Brazilian players' body gradually warmed up and gradually entered the state, the overall offensive play was smoother, and their personal skills were more perfect. In the 23rd minute, Fernandinho knocked horizontally. Augusto volleyed at the bar 24 meters in front of the goal and hurled across the beam, which is a prelude to the Brazilian team's attack.
"Neymar, right pass! Paulinho shot! Supported by Zhang Guan!" CCTV's commentator breathed out. The goal just now was really dangerous. Paulinho was facing the goal at the front of the penalty area. Half-flying Philip shot, the ball was very fast, but also very sudden.
However, the Brazilian team's attack did not end there. Augusto controlled the ball and lifted a supplementary shot from the left foot near the bottom line to hit the side net. This ended the Brazilian team's attack. In this case, this goal even seems to be a real goal.
Three minutes later, the Brazilian team's attack came again, Neymar made a low pass from the left, and Coutinho took the ball and volleyed 17 meters away from the door to the top right corner.
While the narrator shouted in horror, Zhang Guan had moved. He jumped directly and grabbed the basketball with both hands.
In the 30th minute, Paulinho shot a long shot and was thrown by Zhang Guan.
In the 32nd minute, Neymar hit a free kick on the wall.
In the 38th minute, Neymar received a pass from Coutinho, cut into the penalty area on the right and changed the line to trick the Chinese team player. He pushed the ball at a small angle 8 meters in front of the goal. Flying to the goal, but Zhang Guan just stopped.
Before the end of the game, Markinos made a long-range straight ball. Neymar burst into the left side of the penalty area 9 meters away from the gate. Then he kicked the ball to the bottom right corner of the goal and Zhang Guan flew to save. Once again, the danger has been wiped out.
"It can all be stopped!" Neymar seemed a little angry. He repeatedly attacked the goal directly, and they were all very good opportunities, but they were repeatedly stopped by Zhang Guan. Zhang Guan's reaction speed and physical explosiveness far exceeded Neymar. Unexpectedly, Neymar felt that the goal just now required speed and speed. Even the top goalkeepers in the four major leagues in Europe could not be stopped, but Zhang Guan could steadily catch the ball live.
"The speed of the ball is too fast, the explosive power of the legs is very strong, it is worthy of being the world champion of sprint." Neymar secretly said.
The Brazilian team's last attack in the first half was resolved by the Chinese team with a yellow card. The Brazilian team could only take a 0-0 score and returned to the lounge unwillingly.
From the statistical point of view, the Brazilian team is absolutely occupied, the ball control rate accounts for 70%, the number of shots has reached 20, and the average is a little more than two minutes. The Chinese team didn't even pass halftime, let alone the number of shots. At the same time only in the first half, the Chinese team received two yellow cards.
However, the score of 0 to 0 means that the two yellow cards are worth it. It is very rare for the Chinese team to know that the opponent is the Brazil team and can stick to the halftime without losing points.
Of course, the main reason is the existence of Zhang Guan. Several excellent offenses of the Brazilian team have been resolved by Zhang Guan's successful save. If you change a goalkeeper, it is now at least 0 to 3 behind.
At the beginning of the second half, the Brazilian team immediately launched a fierce attack. Paulinho forcibly broke through the two Chinese defensive players, vigorously pushed on the right side of the goal, and was crowned to save the ball to the sideline. Then the Brazilian team The kick kick passed directly to the goal, and Zhang Guan grabbed the ball.
At this time, the Brazilian team has discovered that the corner kick directly passes to the Chinese team's goal, which is a very wrong decision, because every time Zhang Guan will take the ball.
The corner kicks in front of the goal. Most other players rely on headers to fight for the top. However, as the goalkeeper, Zhang Guan can use his hands. Zhang Guan has also obtained 20+ rebounds in a single game in the NBA. To be strong, but also able to use his hands, the Brazilian team's players are considered to be dozens of centimeters of the broom head, but also can not win the crown.
Next, the Brazilian team made several threatening offenses, but they were all resolved by Zhang Guan.
"What's going on, it's been 70 minutes, and it hasn't broken the goal of the Chinese team!" The head coach of the Brazilian team stood up angrily, and he began to substitute!
The Brazilian players on the field suddenly looked a little ugly. They could see that this substitution was a tactical adjustment forced by the head coach. Obviously, they were dissatisfied with the inability to break through the Chinese team's goal.
As the core of the Brazilian team, Neymar felt the pressure. He knew that he could not continue to play so casually. Otherwise, it may really be tied. The Brazilian team needs to show some real skills.
"Damn, I didn't expect this Chinese team to be so difficult! No, Zhang Guan should be said to be so difficult!" Neymar's face was gloomy, but his heart was quite calm.
After 2 minutes, Neymar inserted the ball on the left and passed the ball directly to the opposite point when approaching the bottom line. The Chinese team thought that the ball would be out of the line, so the action was a slow shot, but Augusto suddenly rushed over. After a shovel pass from the bottom line, the ball fell right in front of the goal, and Paulinho's signing advantage appeared at the point where the ball landed.
"Nice coordination! It's like flowing clouds!"
"This is the real Brazil team, and the teamwork is so wonderful!"
Even Chinese fans have to admit that Brazil's match this time was very beautiful and definitely the world's top match.
Faced with Zhang Guan, Augusto did not continue to advance the ball, but chose to directly hit the goal. The direction he chose was the dead corner on the upper left of the goal.
"It's over!" Many fans of the Chinese team have closed their eyes, they dare not go to see this scene.
"Give me in!" Augusto shouted, and he used up all his strength for the ball.
"Oh!" A clear voice sounded, and I saw Zhang Guan was already flying in the air, shot it on the football, the football changed its angle, concentrated the goal post, and then bounced out of the bottom line.
"What! Was thrown!" Augusto looked at Zhang Guan in disbelief.
"It's Zhang Guan again! It's a corner kick again!" The head coach of Brazil suddenly gloomed.
The Brazilian team did not directly pass the corner kick this time, but chose a small range of transmission around the corner to seek a chance to break the goal. The Chinese team compressed the defensive space very tightly, without giving Brazil any chance.
In the 80th minute of the game, the Chinese team received the first red card and was sent off. Without one player to defend, the situation instantly becomes very unfavorable for the Chinese team, which can be said to be precarious.
However, the Chinese team also knows that the game has reached the final moment, and now it only needs to persist for ten minutes, so everyone is desperate, even if the technical level is not enough, they will use their bodies to block the progress of the Brazilian team players.
Brazil is also really anxious. The game has been played for 80 minutes. The Chinese team has not even played at halftime. It has always been pressed by the Brazilian team. However, Brazil is difficult to break through the Chinese team. This is the stage of the World Cup. If the Chinese team is tied, the Brazil team will really lose the adults.
The Brazilian team started to get crazy. The stormy offensive attacked the Chinese team.
In 87 minutes, the Chinese team got a second red card. The two sides turned into 9 players and 11 players.
The referee showed the sign of injury stoppage time, and the injury stoppage time was 3 minutes.
"Hold on for the last 3 minutes!" Chinese players gritted their teeth and ran on the court.
At this time, Neymar made a fake move and turned away from the Chinese team player. He rushed into the penalty area. The Chinese player lifted his foot and broke the ball. He touched Neymar slightly, although it did not affect Neymars body. Balance, but the monkey-like Neymar fell to the ground.
"Penalty! My goodness! 90 minutes, the final moment of the game, penalty! Brazil is going to kill the Chinese team!"
At this moment, the players of the Chinese team covered their faces with annoyance, and some people even started to cry. They didn't expect to stick to the whole game, but they had to lose the game at the last moment.
The Brazilian team took a breath. The penalty kick at this time undoubtedly saved the Brazilian team's life.
Neymar set the ball, he glanced at the opposite goal, and started to kick after a few strides.
Neymar's first kick was just a fake move, but the opposite Zhang Guan had already seen through Neymar's intentions, his body shook slightly, and then he stabilized instantly.
The next moment, Neymar really kicked, and the football hit the bottom left of the goal.
At the same time, Zhang Guan flew to the bottom left of the goal.
"Not good! He guessed it!" Neymar was shocked when he saw Zhang Guan's direction of movement.
Zhang Guan grabbed the ball in his hands.
"It's here, Zhang Guan got a penalty!" The Chinese audience in the audience made a thunderous cry, and on the bench of the Chinese team, many players even cried with joy.
The players on the field wanted to hug Zhang Guan, but Zhang Guan waved to them: "Hold on, the game is not over yet!"
The game is not over yet, and there are two last minutes.
In 93 minutes, the Brazilian team can't wait to serve, and according to the time left now, they can stop the last attack.
At this time, the Brazilian team is still in full pressure. Even the goalkeeper Allison has abandoned his goal, and ran to the Chinese team's half to participate in the team's attack. After all, this is the last attack in this game. One person is also an advantage.
Run, pass. The Brazilian team is working hard to do everything they can.
"Neymar, chance! Shot!"
Neymar caught the last shot that he tried hard, but he immediately found out that his shot was too accurate.
"The angle is too correct. The tricky angles before were all blocked by Zhang Guan, and this ball must be sad for Zhang Guan's Wuzhi Mountain!
The situation is as Neymar expected, the angle of this ball is indeed too correct, directly held by Zhang Guan in his arms. Immediately afterwards, Zhang Guan didn't hesitate at all, as if he was in a hurry, he took a big foot and drove the ball to the backcourt of the Brazilian team.
"The game is coming to an end, the Chinese team even draw Brazil!" Everyone knows that Brazil's last attack was stopped by Zhang Guan, which also represents the end of the game.
The referee blew his cheek. He was about to sound the whistle at the end of the game. Before blowing the whistle, he subconsciously looked down at his watch.
"There are 5 seconds left until the injury stoppage time ends. But what can 5 seconds do? The Brazilian team keeps the ball under control for more than 5 seconds. The overall situation is already! Really thought it would be a draw." The referee raised his head. , Ready to whistle.
However, the next second, he found that the football flying in the sky was really a little taller and faster, and the angle of the flight was also in the middle of the court.
"Wait a minute, this ball..." The referee didn't blow the whistle, but his eyes widened in surprise.
For the Brazilian team, the first goalkeeper Alison.
"Oops!" Allison yelled out, and ran quickly towards his goal with great breastfeeding. However, how can the speed of humans be comparable to the speed of the ball!
"The goal is empty!"
"Look, football, fly towards the goal!"
The audience was full of continuous exclamation, and the TV broadcast lens was precisely aimed at the football in the air.
Landing on the ground is the frontier of the restricted zone.
The ball bounces, then falls, bounces gently, immediately falls, and then starts to roll forward, directly in front of the ball is the goal.
If there is a goalkeeper at this time, it only takes a few steps to copy the football.
But now, in front of the ball is an empty goal! The Brazil goalkeeper is not in front of the goal, he has just participated in the Brazilian team's last attack!
Later, the Brazilian players chased insanely, but football still rolled forward without hurry.
Neymar runs wildly, he feels that he has never been so fast, but he cannot catch up with the football.
The next second, the football rolled into the goal.
The goal is scored!
Allison knelt on the ground. Because of inertia, his body slid forward a large amount. He held his head in pain and covered his face with his hands. I couldn't believe this scene.
The other players of the Brazilian team even showed a sky-turning expression. Eleven played nine. The opponent was the Chinese team, but the Brazilian team did not win. Not only did they not win, they even lost a goal and lost the game.
"Go in? Really go in?" Coach Lippi kept repeating the question, and he couldn't believe it.
"Got a goal? Is this a goal? Is it really a goal? Are we leading? Are we going to win?" The CCTV commentator suddenly shorted his mind. He still felt like he was dreaming at this time. Involuntarily pinched his tiger's mouth.
The next second, the broadcaster played subtitles, 1-0, the Chinese team leading.
At this moment, the narrator woke up like a dream.
"Go in! Goal! We scored! Zhang Guan! He scored! This is not a big kick, it is a shot! He is a shot! The first goal, the Chinese teams first in the World Cup Goals."
"Oh my god, what did I see? Goalkeeper's goal! The goalkeeper kicked the ball into the opponent's penalty area in his own penalty area and then scored a goal! How could this happen!"
After marveling at the scene, the Russian audience couldn't help but give Zhang Guan applause and cheers. The goalkeeper kicked the ball and scored directly. This is not something that has not happened in football, but the audience on the scene never I thought that I would witness this miraculous scene with my own eyes.
Finally, the referee blew the whistle of the game.
"The lore, the Brazilian team suffered a lore, and it was still the lore of the Chinese team. It was actually a goalkeeper who offered this lore! Zhang Guan, even if he stood in the position of the goalkeeper, he still gave We have brought miracles!"
