There are often some upsets in the World Cup group stage, but compared to this game, it is nothing. Brazil lost to the Chinese team 0 to 1 and can be regarded as the biggest upset in the history of the World Cup.
Many people hear this score and think that the Brazilian team deliberately released the water. However, no one who has seen this game has this idea. In this game, the Brazilian team did not perform badly. The tactics, coordination, and personal abilities were all fully displayed. What they lacked may be a little luck. Many of their seemingly necessary goals have been crowned. Stop it. And the loss of points at the last moment can also be seen as a sneak attack by Zhang Guan.
Anyone who can understand the ball can see that Zhang Guan is the key to this game. The overall defense of the Chinese team, strictly speaking, is the second-rate level in the world. This is the effect of the Chinese team only after devoting all its experience to the defense. This kind of defense can't stop Brazil's sharp attack. So the Chinese team relies on Zhang Guan's last line of defense.
Strength or luck, but the result has been determined, the Brazil team lost, the Chinese team won. The Chinese team also has the possibility of qualifying.
At the same time in another match of this group, Poland easily defeated Nigeria. According to the schedule, the next game of Group E will be held on June 22, the Brazilian team will play against Nigeria, while China is facing the Polish team.
Known as the "European White Eagles" Poland team, it is a team that is easily overlooked by people. They are not considered a giant, but they actually have a strong strength, and their world rankings are relatively stable. Is between 10 and 15. Although the Polish team is not included in the seed team, the Polish team's hard power is not inferior to the eight seed teams. Among the non-seed teams, Poland is definitely first-class and can almost be called a quasi-seed team.
The Poles are actually a very good people, such as Klose, Bordeaux, Troszowski, Germany, Andy Johnson of England, etc., are actually players of Polish descent. Now, the number one star of the Polish team, Levin, is also considered to be the best striker in Europe. In addition, Poland also has Blaszykowski, Piszczek, Kriovyak and others, all of which are top European stars.
In the face of the Polish team, China still sent a set of purely defensive lineups, apparently preparing to keep a draw. The Polish team, of course, hopes to take all three points from the Chinese team, because Poland only needs to win the Chinese team to qualify in advance. If the Chinese team cannot win, Poland will face Brazil next time, and it is definitely a win-win-win situation.
So the game turned into a contest between spear and shield, the Polish team kept attacking, and the Chinese team kept on defending.
Brazil failed to break the five-finger mountain of Zhang Guan, the Polish team was even more impossible. They attacked a whole game, and they could only accept a result of 0 to 0. It is worth mentioning that the Polish goalkeeper was at the last minute. He was not involved in the offense. He was obviously worried that Zhang Guan would once again stage the goalkeeper's goal-scoring game.
The Chinese team also paid a red card again for this, and three red cards in two games. The Chinese team is considered to be the team with the most red cards in this World Cup.
A draw brought 1 point each to the Chinese team and the Polish team. Both sides had 4 points. The Polish team temporarily ranked first in the group because of the advantage of the goal difference, and the Chinese team was second in the group.
On the other side, Brazil washed Nigeria 7-0. The anger of the Brazilian team's last loss was all vented on Nigeria. Nigeria is also unlucky, two-game losing streak farewell to the World Cup in advance, not to mention, it is ugly to lose. Brazil therefore ranked third in the group with a three-pointer.
In the final group match, Brazil v Poland, China v Nigeria. Both China and Poland are able to qualify, and Brazil must win if they want to make sure they qualify.
The same is Baoping, the Chinese team is very easy, because the opponent Nigeria has been eliminated, there is no reason to continue to die with the Chinese team to the end. The difficulty of the Polish team to maintain a tie is difficult, because the draw means that the Brazilian team will be eliminated. How can the Brazilian team allow itself to be eliminated in the group stage?
The final result was not unexpected. The Chinese team drew Nigeria 0-0, while the Brazil team beat Poland 3-1.
In Group E, Brazil scored 6 points with 2 wins and 1 loss, and ranked first in the group. The Chinese team ranked second with 1 win, 2 draws and 5 points. Poland won 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss with 4 points. Nigeria The team has 1 draw, 2 losses and 1 point. Brazil and China successfully advanced, while Poland and Nigeria were eliminated.
In the group stage of the World Cup, there are not many cases of promotion to one win, and the situation of qualifying for the knockout stage after only scoring a goal is more like a fairy tale. At this time, the world is lamenting that the Chinese teams luck is really good. 1 goal, rushed to the stage of the World Cup knockout.
Domestically, the whole country is jubilant. According to the strength of the Chinese team, it is very difficult to score a goal. Now that the national team is qualifying, it has mobilized the enthusiasm of the people across the country. Some experts even suggested that primary and secondary schools should take a football lesson every day to strengthen football education in the country.
According to the rules, the second group E will face the first group F in the eighth ring, and the first group F is the French team.
French men's football, traditional European giants, the strength does not need to be introduced. Although the French have much worse hobbies for football than Britain, Italy and the Netherlands, the youth training system of French football lacks the best in Europe. From the primary school, there are leagues. A small town with fewer than 10,000 people has U9, U13, U17, U19 and local Lindsay, there are provincial leagues, autonomous leagues, and then lower professional leagues. And France has a tradition of accepting immigrants over the years. Many outstanding players have been born among immigrant descendants. For example, Zidane is a descendant of immigrants. At the same time, France has a long history of colonizing Africa, and there are many excellent black players in the French team. Henry was the representative of black French players.
In the past two years, French football has clearly risen in Europe, and the world ranking has always been at the forefront of Europe, even being hailed as a team with a certain championship appearance.
In the face of the French team, China still put up a big bucket to defend, and the French team also did not break the Chinese team's goal in the 90-minute regular time.
The World Cup has reached the knockout stage. If the draw is to play overtime, then the Chinese team suffered another 30-minute overtime bombing, the price of several yellow cards, plus Zhang Guanshen's general save, Successfully blocked the French team's offense.
"The referee blew the whistle at the end of the game, but the score was still 0 to 0, and the next game was to decide the victory or defeat!" The high voice of the commentator sounded.
The camera gave the coaches of both sides, and I saw the Chinese team obviously started cheering from the bench, and many people were more like celebrating victory.
"The Chinese team seems to be very happy. But is it too early to celebrate? The game is not over yet!" the European commentator said disdainfully.
However, a few minutes later, he knew why the Chinese team was so happy.
There were only four rounds in the penalty shootout. After the fourth round, the Chinese team scored three goals. This is not a good result, but the French team is even worse. Three rounds of penalty kicks were saved. A penalty was scored. With a score of 3 to 1, there is no need for a fifth round penalty shootout.
"What's going on? What happened to the French team? Only four penalties scored one!"
"Its not the French teams problem, its because the Chinese teams goalkeeper is Zhang Guan! Didnt you just see that the French teams second penalty, the angle and speed are already so perfect, but Zhang Guan was thrown away? Go out."
"No wonder the Chinese bench was so happy just now that Zhang Guan still thought he was the master of the penalty kick."
"We should have thought about this. In the game against Brazil, did Zhang Guan successfully save a penalty, it seems that he is really good at saving a penalty."
"It's not only good at it. Three out of four goals, it's a divine penalty."
The Chinese team entered the quarterfinals with a penalty shootout. The opponent they met in the quarterfinals was Portugal led by Ronaldo.
"Shameless! The Chinese team is playing too shameless! The whole team is defending, even at half time, and finally won the game! If every team is like the Chinese team, football will be unappreciable. Football said that it would surely die out because of this, FIFA should ban the use of this tactic!" Ronaldo said with a sullen face, angrily looking at a Portuguese reporter.
This also does not complain about Ronaldo, at this time Ronaldo's psychology is indeed too sullen. The Portuguese team is attacking the whole game, Cristiano Ronaldo even has several wonderful shots, but the Portuguese team still has not scored. After 120 minutes of rushing, he didn't score a goal, which was very depressing for Portugal, but in the final penalty shootout, he lost to the Chinese team, which almost made Cristiano Ronaldo's mood collapse.
This year, Ronaldo is 33 years old. He has begun to enter the downhill stage of his career. Perhaps this will be his last World Cup. He is eager to lead Portugal to a better and better result, and even to obtain the final. champion. However, he once again stopped the quarter-finals of the World Cup and was eliminated by the Chinese team. From now on, the World Cup will become a regret in his life.
After Cristiano Ronaldo's voice, the French team also followed up and expressed support for Cristiano Ronaldo. They lost the same way as Portugal and naturally stood on the Portuguese side.
Subsequently, many European media also stood up and criticized the Chinese team's play. European media will naturally not stand on the Chinese team's side. What "lacks knighthood", "undermines the balance of football", and "makes football lose its aggressiveness" "Heart" and other titles are all detained on the Chinese team's head. Even a lot of media began to hype, asking FIFA to ban the Chinese team from using this purely defensive tactics.
The European media once again showed their shamelessness. FIFA is a slim and slim posture. In the face of the responsibilities of the European media, Zhang Guan sneered.
"Our team is weak, don't we let the weak team play defensive counterattack!" Zhang Guan said to the reporter who asked questions.
"Defense counterattack? We only saw that you are defending, but you did not see your counterattack." The reporter who asked the question continued quite angrily.
"It's not because our strength is weaker than our opponents. Before the counterattack, the ball was snatched by the opponents." Zhang Guan said with a cheeky face: "When we played against Brazil in the group stage, we didn't have a successful defense. Counterattack, also scored a goal."
The reporter was speechless for a while, and Zhang Guan clearly displayed a reasonable posture of my weakness.
Only Zhang Guan went on to say: "I heard that many media claim that the tactics used by our Chinese team are shameless. I have to state in advance that our Chinese team uses authentic European team tactics. Coach Pi is also one of the most famous coaches in Europe. He brought the essence of Italian football defense to China. How could it be a shameless tactic! Is it doubting that Italy won the championship at the World Cup 12 years ago?"
The reporter at the scene remembered that the head coach of the Chinese team was Lippi, the top coach in Europe, but he led Juventus to sweep Europe, and even led the Italian team to the World Cup.
Italy itself is a defensive team. It is more normal for the team brought by the Italian coach to focus on defense.
Zhang Guan pulled Lippi, and even Italian football, in a word, blocking the mouth of the European media. Italy is also a traditional European powerhouse. Serie A is the world's top football league. Lippi has proved in Serie A or the World Cup It is impossible for the European media to beat their own faces by themselves.
The Italians who have long been eliminated have also stood up, and they have also shown a posture of success.
"Even the weak team of the Chinese team, using our Italian tactics, are able to kill France and Portugal one after another, and enter the semi-finals of the World Cup. This shows that our Italian football is the real European first!"
This performance of the Italians has made many European media unable to talk, if you really have the skills in Italy, how have you been eliminated? However, many people familiar with Italians are not surprised. The characteristics of Italians are like this. They are fanatical, inefficient, and not organized. They often arrive late, but when it comes to fighting for merit, they run out first. Boasting Europe's number one is not once or twice.
In the face of Italy's boast, European football powers such as Spain, England, France, etc. did not refute much, because they were also eliminated, but Germany is different. Germany is still in the top four, and it is the only one in the top four. European teams, their opponents in the semifinals are precisely the Chinese team.
On July 10, the first match of the World Cup semi-finals, Brazil against Argentina, these two old friends encountered on the stage of the World Cup semi-finals, naturally attracted the attention of the world. Under the leadership of Messi, Argentina beat Brazil, successfully advanced to the final.
On the other hand, the contest between Germany and China is obviously one-sided looking at Germany. In the Brazil World Cup four years ago, Germany and Argentina finally reached the finals. Goetzes lore helped the German team to win the Hercules Cup. After four years, these two teams were very It may happen again.
But the premise is that Germany will pass the Chinese team.
On July 11, at Luzhniki Stadium, the German team encountered the same experience as France and Portugal.
In the 5th minute, Hedira pushed the left foot and was shot by Zhang Guan; in the 12th minute, Gnabry's right foot shot from the penalty area was shot by Zhang Guan; in the 19th minute, Gnabry went outside and shot long Guan Yi slapped out of bounds; in the 27th minute, Goetze had already deceived all the defensive players of the Chinese team in the second seconds before the penalty area. Hector faced Zhang Guan in the penalty area but failed to score a goal. In the 40th minute, Gomez shot from the middle of the penalty area was blocked again.
At the beginning of the second half, Gomez was knocked out of the penalty area, but the penalty kick hit the goal post; in the 54th minute, Jing Doan took a free kick and missed the goal directly; in the 63rd minute, Gnabri's one The foot shot hit the post again. In the 68th minute, Goetze made a corner kick that just landed on Zhang Guan's head and was embraced by Zhang Guan.
The German team knew Zhang Guan's strength, so he tried to take a tricky shooting angle as much as possible, but then it was followed by missed shots or hitting the post.
German goalkeeper Ter Stegen's position was a little forward, Zhang Guan took a chance and kicked the ball to the German team's goal. Ter Stegen reflected it for the first time and finally fell into the ball In front of the goal, the ball was shot in the other direction, and the German team was also frightened with cold sweat.
"It really can't be taken lightly, otherwise it will be like the Brazilian team and eventually lose the game!"
After being attacked once, the German team only slowed down for half a day, and the German team's offensive seemed to weaken by three points.
After 120 minutes of offense and defense, the referee's whistle sounded, and the game was dragged into overtime.
"It's a penalty shootout again!" The spectators were excited. From the point of view, the penalty shootout is much stronger than some ordinary goals.
The audience didn't think it was too much to watch the excitement, but the hearts of the German team players collapsed.
In the first four rounds of penalties, Zhang Guan successfully saved two of them. Goetze finally realized why Ronaldo was so angry when he was interviewed.
In the first four rounds of penalty kicks, the Chinese team scored three, and the score was too much 3-2. In the final fifth round of penalty kicks, the Chinese team did not score. This gave the German team a chance. If the German team can If a goal is scored, then the score of both sides will be 3 to 3 and a "sudden death penalty" will be imposed.
Goetze personally stepped onto the free throw line. In the Brazil World Cup final four years ago, he once killed Argentina in the 113th minute, and now this crucial penalty also fell on him.
Gotze took a deep breath and suddenly started. Lift your feet and play football! The next moment he saw that Zhang Guan did not move.
Goetze was overjoyed. The direction of his shot was the upper right corner of the goal. It was a tricky angle. If the goalkeeper did not prejudge in advance, it would be too late to make a judgment after the ball flew out.
However, Ge Ze still underestimated Zhang Guan's explosive power, only to see Zhang Guan leaping high, and then served first, fingers just blocked the ball.
"Bash it! 3 to 2, the Chinese team won!"
Getze knelt down on the ground in disappointment, and wept bitterly.
Who can break the goal of the Chinese team?
Sports media all over the world are discussing this issue. The World Cup has come to an end. No team can score goals from the Chinese team in regular time. This includes Brazil, France, Portugal and Germany. Strong team. And the Chinese team was forced to kick the penalty by defensive draw and reached the World Cup final. This is something that has never happened before.
At this time, people only think of a name, Leo Messi!
Messi, has already won almost all football-related honors, only one World Cup champion. Four years ago in Brazil, he led the Argentine team to the finals, but eventually lost to the hands of the German team, and four years later, he led Argentina to the final again, the sword refers to the Hercules Cup. For the 31-year-old Messi, this World Cup may be the only chance in his career to win the championship.
At this time, Messi and the entire Argentina team faced a completely strange opponent-the Chinese team.
No one can imagine that the Chinese team will reach the World Cup final!
As a South American team, there are not many opportunities to play against Asian teams, not to mention the two teams that are several grades away. For Argentina, even if it is a warm-up match, it will not confront the Chinese team. The strength of the two teams is too different. It can be said that the strength of the Chinese team does not have any warm-up effect against Argentina at all. The earth will increase the boat ride.
But now, Argentina has encountered the Chinese team in the World Cup finals, and he has to face a problem, that is how to break the Chinese team's goal.
If it is placed before the World Cup, Messi will feel that it is only a matter of time to break the Chinese team's goal, even if the Chinese team only defends and does not attack, but now, Messi does not think so. Zhang Guan didn't lose a goal in the World Cup, and in the penalty shootout, he even showed his ability to surpass other goalkeepers, and he could almost make a 50% chance of a ball. Two of the penalty shootouts can save one. This efficiency basically means that the penalty shootout can win 100%.
"We must break the Chinese team's goal within 120 minutes. If we delay the penalty shootout, we're afraid we will really lose!" Messi made up his mind secretly.
On July 15, at the Luzhniki Stadium, the World Cup finally ushered in the final match.
For the Chinese players, they never thought they could enter the World Cup finals. The Hercules Cup is like a dream to Chinese players, not a dream. Dreams have a chance to be realized, but dreams are the kind of nonsense that can only be thought of in the mind.
Today, however, they are standing in the finals of the World Cup. For the Chinese team players at this time, winning and losing seems to be an indifferent thing, they are more like a dream come true. Everyone seemed very nervous and very excited.
However, being too excited is not a good thing. The opening was only 1 minute and a half. Quadrado had a chance to break through on the right. A cross came right in front of Mercado. Mercado shot hard with his left foot. Fortunately, Zhang Guan threw at the last minute. under.
Five minutes later, the Chinese team tripped Messi with a foot and got the first yellow card. Then Messi took the free kick outside the arc. The ball was in arc and seemed to be out of bounds, but it fell. But in the goal, almost pierced the goal of the Chinese team. Fortunately, Zhang Guan was alert and stopped the ball at a critical moment.
"It's a pity that I almost came in! If you change another goalkeeper, you can't help it!" Messi secretly said.
Zhang Guan also shuddered with cold sweat. Only six minutes into the opening, the Argentina team had two extremely threatening offenses. Messi also brought unprecedented pressure to Zhang Guan.
In the 11th minute, Messi made a direct pass, Higuain shot from the top of the penalty area and was pushed out of the bounds by Zhang Guan. After three minutes, Messi scored again and Di Maria hit a long shot in the goal range, then Was in the arms of Zhang Guan. In the 18th minute, Messi got the ball on the right and shook three Chinese players in a row. Then he made a sudden left-footed pass to the Chinese team. Prato jumped to prepare for the header and luckily won the championship. Attacked ahead of time and took the lead to catch the ball in his hand. Prato's head checked into Zhang Guan's chest, and the referee warned him.
In the 26th minute, Messi got another free kick in front of the penalty area. He adjusted the state and shot directly. However, Zhang Guan is like a big mountain, guarding in front of the Chinese team, let Messi's free kick again in vain.
The game turned into the trend of the previous few games, the Chinese team desperately defended, the Argentina team desperately attacked, a little time passed, but they never scored.
Messi did not give up, Argentina did not give up, they are still attacking, they have played the essence of Argentine football to the extreme. However, the Chinese team on the opposite side also exerted its unyielding and tenacious spirit to the extreme. Although the body is not dominant, the Chinese players are not afraid of physical confrontation at all. They bravely collided with the Argentine.
In 90 minutes, there were 10 people left on the Chinese team's court, but Argentina still failed to score.
In overtime, another Chinese team was sent off with a total of two yellow cards. The Argentine team beat 9 of 11 and completely crushed the Chinese team. However, every attack was blocked by Zhang Guan in front of the goal.
"It seems to be a bit of a ball fight again!" Many people have realized this.
Messi struggled to kick the last ball, then watched Zhang Guan take away the ball, and then, he heard the referee's long whistle.
After the overtime, Argentina, like other teams, failed to break the Chinese team's goal.
"Penalty shootout! Another penalty shootout! Since the Chinese team entered the knockout stage, they have not scored a goal, but they have relied on the penalties shootout to enter the finals. With Zhang Guan as a **** in the shootout Its definitely an unwise move to play a penalty kick with the Chinese team! It seems that the Argentine team will also encounter the encounter of other teams.
In the commentator's words, Argentina's goalkeeper Romero was excited, because he is also a master of penalty kicks!
On the strength of the penalty kick, Romero is definitely the world's top. In the last World Cup, Argentina defeated the Netherlands, relying on penalty kicks, and Romero hit two penalty kicks at the time, which can be said to be the victory of Argentina. The biggest hero.
Today, Romero has been standing in front of his goal for more than 120 minutes, and nothing has been done. The Chinese team has no intention of passing the halftime. Romero can only watch his teammates desperately in front.
But in the penalty shootout, Romero finally had the opportunity to play his special skills. And he wants to let the world know that he is the first person to shoot a penalty!
Argentina's first penalty kick came from Higuain. Argentine sent him to play obviously to get a starter.
However, Higuain disappointed the Argentine fans. He chose the position of the bottom corner on the right. The angle was not very biased. Zhang Guan saved the ball with both hands.
"Aoao Aoao!" The Chinese fans on the scene, all screamed excitedly.
However, Romero's state was equally brave, and he also hit the penalty kick of the Chinese team. Romero, who hit the penalty kick, shouted in the sky to vent his excitement.
Aguero made a penalty kick, he chose a high point, Zhang Guan directly used a basketball cap to take the ball. Then the Chinese team was out of luck and the penalty kick hit the goal post.
Argentine team Di Maria debut, he did not choose a very tricky schedule, but wanted to use a fast ball to make a breakthrough. But Zhang Guan's speed is even faster. He didn't even use the save action. He took a quick slide and held the ball in his arms.
However, the Chinese team's penalty kick lacked some strength and was also blocked by Romero.
After three rounds, there was no penalty for the two sides, or the same starting line of 0 to 0.
In the fourth round, Argentina's Mascherano debut, still did not break through the five-finger mountain Zhang Zhang, and the Chinese team finally scored.
1-0, the Chinese team leads, and each side has a chance to take a penalty.
For Argentina, this goal must be scored, and at this time, Messi played.
Messi and Zhang Guan faced each other again.
I saw Messi standing on the free throw line, raising my foot without saying anything. The football changed direction in the air and directly scored into the goal corner.
"Go in! 1 to 1, Messi scored the first goal for the Argentina team, then it will depend on whether the Chinese team can score a penalty!"
As long as the Chinese team scores this goal, they can win the championship. However, Romero gave a god-like save and hit the Chinese team's ball for the third time.
At the end of the fifth round, Zhang Guan went to four and Romero to three, all of which can be regarded as the performance of god-level goalkeepers. However, considering the gap between the strengths of the players of Argentina and China, Romero's penalties for penalties are obviously Not as good as Zhang Guan.
"Five rounds of penalties turned out to be only 1:1, and the goalkeepers of both sides played to the top level! And then it was the turn to increase the penalty. Sudden death method, if one side scores, but the other side does not score, no The side that scored the goal will lose the game!"
Argentina is playing for Biglia. Like his scholar Messi, he went straight and shot without a word. However, he did not have the level of Messi, his ball did not fall into the dead end, but was blocked by Zhang Guan.
"Stopped, Zhang Guan saved, then as long as the Chinese team made a free throw, they won!"
Messi said with comfort: "The Chinese team should send a defender to take a penalty kick. Don't worry, the Chinese team is different from Brazil. Asian defenders are not good at penalty kicks. And they are defensive throughout the court and their physical strength has been exhausted. Many, penalty kicks will not be of good quality."
Messi was talking, but saw Zhang Guan stepping forward, he was going to take the penalty personally.
"Zhang Guan, Zhang Guan! Does he personally take a penalty?"
"How to forget Zhang Guan, he played the striker in the World Cup qualifiers, and was the first shooter in the Asian qualifiers in the World Championships!"
The Argentine team was tense. They thought that the penalty kick forward would be a Chinese defender, but they didn't expect it to be played by the big boss.
At this moment, Argentine goalkeeper Romero's expression was unprecedentedly serious, Zhang Guan just stood opposite, making him feel invisible pressure.
In the distance, the light shines on the Hercules Cup, radiating a golden light, perhaps it will have a new owner in the next moment.
The scene was extremely quiet. Everyone held their breath and waited to watch the moment when it was decided.
Zhang Guan stood there, motionless, and he stared straight at the goal.
Time seems to freeze at this moment, not just in the stadium, outside the stadium, in front of the TV, in the eyes of every audience.
The next second, Zhang Guan finally moved, not suddenly, just a slight run-up, and then got up.
No hesitation, no fancy, straight and straight shot.
The football flies up and spins in the air. At this moment, it seems to be a beautiful elf, flying dexterously in the air, making people wonder the direction.
The next moment, the elf flew to the goal and was trapped by the door net.
