Four things Russia must do to beat Spain – FIFA on GBP Sports

  • Russia play Spain in the Round of 16
  • Though favourites, the Spanish have shown some weaknesses
  • Cherchesov, Ignashevich and Dzyuba discuss their approach to the game
By Igor Borunov with Russia

While the fans will evidently be on Russia’s side at the Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday, Spain will go into the match as favourites. Yet, as Portugal, IR Iran and Morocco showed, Fernando Hierro’s team can be vulnerable. The Sbornaya are fully aware they must capitalise on their opponents’ shortcomings if they are to pull off the unthinkable.

“We know how Spain play,” Russia head coach Stanislav Cherchesov told FIFA TV. “It’s hard to counter, but we’re going to try. We played against Julen Lopetegui’s team and we are seeing changes under Hierro. I won’t go into specifics, but the team is playing a little differently.”

Exploit defensive weaknesses
Sergei Ignashevich, Russia’s main man in defence, recently touched upon some potential problem areas in the Spanish defence: “Their defenders play a high line, which leaves space in behind and opens the door for the opposition to create chances on the counter. Morocco and Iran took advantage of this and so should we.”

Spain have been unusually porous at the back recently, a problem that first arose in the friendly against Russia in November, when they let in three for the first time since Brazil 2014. Their only clean sheets this year have come against Tunisia and Iran.

Full-backs Jordi Alba and Dani Carvajal often push forward but do not always track back to their positions, while Sergio Busquets cannot be expected to cover every gap. There are also question marks over David de Gea, one of the best goalkeepers in the world, who has conceded five goals from only six shots on target at Russia 2018.

Press intelligently
With Aleksandr Golovin returning to the line-up, Russia should be back at full strength. They will need to press intelligently, however, and choose their moments, as Sergio Ramos and Gerard Pique are more than capable of slicing a team in half with a single pass out of defence. Yet, as Morocco showed, the central defensive duo can be caught off-guard too.

In their own half of the pitch, the hosts cannot afford to let Isco out of sight, nor give Andres Iniesta the freedom to roam. They also need to keep a tight leash on Diego Costa. The Sbornaya kept a close watch on Mohamed Salah in the group match against Egypt, though he did get on the scoresheet from the spot. They will have to be just as vigilant with Costa, who is no less dangerous.

Make the most of set pieces
Dead-ball situations have been key to success at Russia 2018 so far, as the hosts found to their cost against Uruguay. Having underperformed in this area so far, it seems unlikely the eastern Europeans will excel from set pieces against Spain, although there is a potential threat in Cherchesov’s line-up.

Morocco’s Youssef En-Nesyri scored a wonderful header from a corner against Spain, and Artem Dzyuba, Russia’s towering striker, has the aerial ability to worry them as well. That said, the Spanish pose a dead-ball threat of their own, with Iago Aspas flicking home from a clever corner routine to rescue a point for La Roja against the north Africans. Ignashevich and Co cannot afford to switch off for a second.

Take their chances
The outcome will hinge on taking chances when they arise. Spain are unlikely to repeat the lapse in concentration that led to Morocco’s first goal too often, which means Russia must seize whatever opportunities come their way. The Moroccans created a similar chance later in the game, only for Khalid Boutaib to shoot straight at De Gea.

Dzyuba summed up Russia’s mindset ahead of the game: “We understand what we need to do – show patience and look for chances. We have to take every opportunity, and we can’t afford for any player to be off their game. We all have to give it everything we have.

“We have a plan but I don’t want to reveal it,” he concluded. “Spain control possession superbly, constantly passing to each other and changing positions. We need to find a way to counter this. We have to be solid tactically.”

Lessons learned for Argentina ahead of France test – FIFA on GBP Sports

  • ​Win over Nigeria generated lots of talking points
  • La Albiceleste beginning to believe​
  • Follow the #FRAARG LIVE BLOG
By Diego Zandrino with Argentina

Argentina’s defeat of Nigeria took them into the last 16 at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ and allowed them to draw some valuable conclusions ahead of Saturday’s meeting with France.

Big names stand tall
Lionel Messi did more than just score a superb goal against the Nigerians. As well as also striking the post with a free-kick, he produced a vital block late on as Argentina clung on to their hard-earned lead.

“He’s the captain, the leader and the example for us to follow,” said Federico Fazio in an exclusive interview with FIFA. “It was important to see him at his best and scoring. It gives us confidence and it forces us all to be the best we can be.”

In that respect there were plenty of solid performances in key positions: Marcos Rojo and Nicolas Otamendi barely put a foot wrong at the back; Javier Mascherano brought some much-needed balance to midfield, while Ever Banega set the tempo and was a constant threat with his raking passes; and though he did not score, Gonzalo Higuain tirelessly created space for his team-mates.

All of them, in forming a spine that now also includes Franco Armani, will need to be at their very best against the French, who won their group thanks more to their individual than collective strengths.

Intensity and defensive solidity
The Argentina players were quick to acknowledge their defensive flaws in their opening two games, flaws that appeared despite the team enjoying plenty of possession.

The four-man defence employed against Nigeria showed no weak spots, however, and was ably supported by debutant Armani in goal. The only nervy moments came when La Albiceleste were chasing a winner and left gaps for the speedy Nigerian forwards to exploit.

“It’s not just down to the defence; the whole team worked towards that,” added Fazio. “Even Leo [Messi] was dropping back to defend the final ball. That’s only going to make the team stronger and help it to grow.”

Defence will be a crucial aspect of the encounter with France, a team packed with creative and attacking talent. Perhaps the biggest challenge facing La Albiceleste in Kazan is to achieve the necessary level of intensity and focus and to maintain it.

Reacting to adversity
In contrast to their two previous games, Argentina were able to recover from the first setback they suffered against Nigeria, going on to secure the result they needed after the Africans had equalised from the spot early in the second half.

“The penalty changed everything because all the frustration and problems came back in a match that we had under control,” said Mascherano, speaking to FIFA after the game. “We lost our heads a bit, but we never stopped fighting and that’s what got us the result in the end.”

That fighting spirit allowed the team to regain their composure, resist the temptation to launch long balls into the box, and have the coolness of mind to construct the move that led to Rojo scoring his late winner.

In the view of Giovani Lo Celso, who plays his club football in France and knows Argentina’s next opponents well, that reaction was all a question of experience, a factor that could prove vital in Kazan.

“They’ve got some quality players, but they’re not used to these situations,” said the midfielder. “A lot of my team-mates have several World Cups under their belts and we have to try and make that count.”

Changing of the guard brings new hope for Panama – FIFA on GBP Sports

  • ​Panama bow out of their maiden World Cup
  • Six pillars of the team also played their final game
  • New guard tasked with guiding them back for 2022
By Samuel McCollin with Panama

The historic 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ journey has ended for Panama. Their first chance to experience what lies beyond the familiarity of qualification. Now it’s time to apply what they have learned so that they can be back by Qatar 2022.

Their meeting with Tunisia wasn’t only their last match in Russia 2018, it was a farewell to six players who achieved their dream after chasing it for so many years, becoming heroes to a small country that experienced this World Cup euphorically. It also gave rise to the new names that will continue to be spoken around the world, taking on the responsibility of guiding this team into the future.

Voice of experience
“The national team has been part of my life”, Gabriel Gomez told FIFA, before his 145th match with the side, which he played out in Saransk.

Considered as “the team’s coach on the field”, Gomez played all three games in Russia, as well as being a mentor for the players who will continue representing the country.

Panama’s goalkeeper Jaime Penedo also bowed out from the team, and said the role that the veterans played in the squad was to lead by example, so that the younger ones can follow. “I’m sure it will be the first of many World Cups for Panama,” Penedo said. “It doesn’t depend on me any more and I’m sure that the players that stay will assume the responsibility.”

The prize that they couldn’t get
Even before the World Cup began, Panama knew that they were the team with the lowest expectations, but it didn’t mean that they weren’t going to try their best. After a surprisingly solid performance against Belgium, despite defeat, then a heavy crash against England, they persevered for a point in their final match, but Tunisia denied them.

Panama had illusions of clinching victory after Jose Luis Rodriguez saw his effort deflected in by Yassine Meriah, but the team lost their composure in the second period, with Tunisia clinching a 2-1 win.

The defeat left frustration in Panama’s squad, however pride remained for what they have achieved. Post-match presented the perfect moment to hand over the responsibility that has been carried for so many years by captain Roman Torres, Gomez, Penedo, Felipe Baloy, Blas Perez and Luis Tejada, the last two who finish their international career as Panama’s joint top scorers with 43 goals each.

The present and the future
Inside and outside Los Canaleros’s squad, there are a core of very talented players that can guide Panama to a quick World Cup return. Michael Murillo, Fidel Escobar, Ricardo Avila, Edgar Barcenas, Jose Luis Rodriguez, Abdiel Arroyo, Ismael Diaz, on top of those with more experience, can provide a strong look for Panama as they move forward.

“We learned a lot from them,” Barcenas said, reflecting on the players who were hanging up their boots, but will remain sources of wisdom and support. “That will help us, but now we need to understand that they aren’t playing with us anymore, and we need to get mentally strong and prepare ourselves better.”

Escobar also was thankful for how the veterans had helped him to be able to earn an important spot in the squad, with the 23-year-old defending insisting their role in this team will not be quickly forgotten. “They are the reference point for our football and we will fight for what they did for us.”
