44 days to go: Poland’s goalscoring haul so far – FIFA on GBP Sports

The 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ is getting closer – 44 days to go!

In less than two months’ time – on 14 June, to be precise – the 21st FIFA World Cup™ kicks off at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium, as the hosts take on Saudi Arabia.​

That leaves us plenty of time to enjoy a countdown. Between now and the start of the World Cup, we will take a closer look at a different statistic from the history of the tournament each day.​​​

44 The number of goals Poland have scored at the FIFA World Cup, a rate of 1.4 per game. Having made it to the tournament on seven occasions, the latest being Germany 2006, their most impressive in front of goal was undoubtedly when their neighbours last hosted the finals in 1974.

Going on to finish the festivities in third, a feat they would replicate eight years later, they stormed ahead of all – including Johan Cruyff’s Netherlands and the victorious hosts – by clocking up an impressive 16 goals. Almost half of those were bagged in a single game, too, when they earned a 7-0 win over Haiti.

Leading their goalscoring charge is Grzegorz Lato, who hit seven that year to win the adidas Golden Boot, before adding a further three to his tally over the following two tournaments.

Oviedo’s World Cup dream driven by family spirit – FIFA on GBP Sports

  • Bryan Oviedo broke his leg months before Brazil 2014
  • He recovered and helped Los Ticos reach Russia 2018
  • “Those sad memories made me stronger for the future”

Every family has a favourite FIFA World Cup™ memory. Bryan Oviedo remembers rising at an unearthly hour so he could sit together with his father and watch Costa Rica play on the other side of the world during Korea/Japan 2002. Those precious moments in the Oviedo household are cherished to this day.

“I remember it very clearly,” Oviedo told FIFA.com in an exclusive interview. “Before I went to school, my father would wake me up and I’d watch the games. It was really nice. Costa Rica did well, even if they didn’t get out of the group.

“The game against Brazil stands out for me. We lost 5-2 but everyone was still happy because we played so well. Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and Roberto Carlos, it was a fantastic Brazil team.”

Fast-forward 12 years and the mood in the Oviedo household was distinctly different. Bryan had helped his country reach Brazil 2014, but Los Ticos went to the tournament without him. The then Everton man suffered a broken leg six months before the tournament and in May 2014, Oviedo admitted defeat. He would not recover in time to head to the World Cup.

“It was a really bad moment,” Oviedo reflected. “I remember my mother crying at times. I think it’s more sad for my family than for me. I know football continues and carries on but sometimes your family think differently.

“I think you need to move forward, look at yourself, keep doing everything well. That’s the only constant – football never stops. You need to continue. Despite that, it was so sad not to be at that World Cup. It doesn’t matter if I had played, or not, but simply to be a part of that team, which will be remembered in Costa Rican history.”

That team reached the quarter-finals for the first time in the nation’s history, defying the odds to finish top of a group that included three former World Cup champions. But could Oviedo bring himself to watch the matches?

“I was commentating for a couple of games, which was fun – a new experience for me. But the other games I was with my family. I supported my country and the team while I was in Costa Rica together with them.”

That strong family bond galvanised Oviedo’s path to recovery, and ultimately saw him tread a familiar path which had a different destination: the road to Russia. The Sunderland man played a key role in World Cup qualifying, and was on the pitch against Honduras when Costa Rica secured their Russia 2018 spot.

“I remember being on the floor and saying thanks to God for that opportunity,” Oviedo smiled. “After the game my wife and son came on to the pitch together and enjoyed being a part of that. I think that’s one of my happiest moments. Those sad memories of Brazil 2014 made me stronger for the future.”

That future is appearing on the horizon, with the Russia 2018 draw pitting Oviedo and Los Ticos against old foes Brazil, as well as strong European sides Switzerland and Serbia.

“We know that every group in the World Cup is tough because there are only the best teams in the world there,” Oviedo said. “We know that whoever we play we need to be ready for that. In 2014, we played against England, Italy and Uruguay – we were the smaller country – and we qualified top of the group.”

To face the five-time World Cup champions A Seleção in the group games brings those schoolboy memories of watching Korea/Japan 2002 flooding back for Oviedo. However, the tricky left-sided player thinks nostalgia cannot play a part in his side’s mindset for Russia.

“Everything is new right now,” Oviedo said. “That was in the past. At that moment [in 2002] maybe Brazil were too strong. Right now, they are also strong but football is changing. We have more players with more experience. Whatever happens, we’ll play a good game, because whenever we play against Brazil – and top teams – normally we play really well.”

That determination and spirit has seen Oviedo return stronger from his 2014 nadir, but he has been helped no end by the support of his family. When the Los Ticos’ No8 steps out onto the Samara pitch against Serbia in June, he will represent not just Costa Rica, but the Oviedo clan – creating happier World Cup memories in the process. His mother may once more shed a tear, but this time it will be not of sorrow, but of joy.

Badri senses big things for Tunisia – FIFA on GBP Sports

Every story has to start somewhere, and in the case of Tunisia forward Anice Badri, the exact point at which his career began to chart an upward curve lies in the not-too distant past. After starting out in very modest circumstances with Royal Mouscron-Peruwelz in Belgium, where he produced some notable performances, conjured up the occasional flash of brilliance, and suffered his fair share of injuries, Badri had just one goal in mind: to find the best stage for him to make himself known to his compatriots and put himself in contention for some key engagements in the future.

Badri set his sights on one destination in particular: Esperance Sportive de Tunis. Convinced that a return to his roots in Tunisia would give him the platform he needed to embark on an international career, he signed on the dotted line for the North African giants in 2016. Events since then have shown that he was absolutely right to follow his intuition. “I had some good half-season spells in the Belgian league, but I felt that the time had come for me to change course and join Esperance, especially with the CAF Africa Cup of Nations and the FIFA World Cup coming up on the horizon,” he said, explaining his masterplan.

The move has gone even better than the Lyon-born forward could have expected, however. Feeling very much at home in Tunis, Badri is getting the regular football he has always craved, polishing his game with every passing match. “I’ve progressed on every level: mentally, tactically and physically,” he explained. “I manage matches better now and I’m doing the right things at the right time.”

A turning point
Now one of the star attractions of the Tunisian championship, Badri has forced his way into the international arena, playing in the CAF Champions League with his club and with the Eagles of Carthage, just as he had hoped for. Proving every bit as sharp as he is on the domestic stage, the striker has delivered when needed. One such occasion came in Tunisia’s visit to Congo DR in the qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, where his late equaliser secured a valuable 2-2 draw that took the North Africans a big step closer to their fifth world finals appearance.

“I walk down the street and people still talk to me about it. That’s when everything changed for me and I want to maintain the level of confidence that this new status has brought me,” said Badri, who is hoping the good times will continue to roll for him in Russia, where he is expected be one of a sizeable contingent of Esperance players to be involved at football’s showpiece event. “I’m certain Tunisia can be one of the revelations of the tournament, and I’m not just saying that because it sounds nice. We’re 14th in the FIFA World Ranking right now, which shows how good we are, and we’re going to prove that on the pitch.”

On each of their four previous World Cup appearances, the Tunisians have packed their bags at the end of the first round. “The time has come to change that,” vowed Badri. “We know how to manage games, play as a unit, make our skills count, keep possession, and make the difference in attack. Our opponents are going to suffer against us,” said the 27-year-old, who feels the Eagles of Carthage’s time has come in Group G, where they will take on Belgium, Panama and England. And as he has shown, Badri has a gift for seeing what the future holds.
