Resultados Rusia 2018: Jueves y Viernes

Jun 22, 2018

Copa Mundial FIFA Rusia 2018

La frase “ganar por ‘la mínima’”, nunca fue mejor utilizada que en el séptimo día de competencia en Rusia. En la segunda ronda de competencia de los grupos A y B, se dieron tres idénticos resultados por “la minima”.

   Uruguay venció a Arabia Saudita, que se había llevado 5 goles en su debut contra el anfitrión, en la apertura del evento. El gol de los Charrúas lo hizo Luis Suárez, el delantero del Barcelona anota por primera vez en esta edición de los campeonatos mundiales.

   Con este resultado, los sudamericanos prácticamente están en la próxima ronda, sólo por definirse el primer y segundo lugar del grupo cuando se enfrente el proximo lunes 25, al seleccionado de Rusia.

   En el grupo B, Portugal enfrentó a Marruecos que venia de sufrir una derrota de 1-0 contra Irán en el debut de ambas selecciones. El ariete del Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo anoto su cuarto gol de esta competencia, no sin controversia, ni el árbitro, ni el VAR parecieron notar la falta del central Lusitano, Pepe, que derribó a un defensor Marroquí, justo antes del remate de CR7. Cuatro Goles de Portugal, (todos de Cristiano) y cuatro puntos que lo ponen muy cerca de la clasificación a octavos de final.

    En el partido estelar de la noche, el favorito del grupo, España, se enfrentó a Irán, que en su debut había conseguido una apretado victoria contra Marruecos. El gol del partido lo anotó el delantero del Atletico de Madrid Diego Costa, quien llega a res dianas en Rusia, y le da a su selección la posibilidad  de clasificar incluso con el empate, dependiendo del resultado de Portugal-Irán.

    Tres encuentros “por la mínima”, tres protagonistas de las Copas del Mundo tres grandes goleadores del fútbol mundial. Tres escuadras que dejan muchas dudas con miras a la siguiente ronda de este campeonato.

¡A 17 días de Rusia 2018!

La Copa Mundial de la FIFA Rusia 2018™ está cada vez más cerca… ¡Solo faltan 17 días! Cada día, y hasta que comience la Copa Mundial, destacaremos un número relevante en la historia del torneo.

17 – El norirlandés Norman Whiteside apenas tenía 17 años y 41 días cuando se convirtió en el futbolista más joven en disputar la gran cita del deporte rey en la Copa Mundial de la FIFA España 1982™, batiendo el récord de Pelé. Whiteside únicamente había disputado dos partidos con su club, el Manchester United, cuando el seleccionador de Irlanda del Norte, Billy Bingham, lo convocó para España 1982, donde se estrenó como internacional.

Whiteside cuenta cómo lo vivió: “Quitarle a Pelé el título de futbolista más joven que ha aparecido en un Mundial fue algo soberbio. Lo más impactante que recuerdo es que los periodistas de todo el mundo me hacían preguntas, y yo trataba de responderlas después de que hablaran en sus respectivos idiomas, pero era complicado seguir el hilo, porque me olvidaba continuamente de lo que me habían preguntado”.

LOONS BEGIN HOMESTAND WITH 2-1 WIN OVER HOUSTON

Apr 29, 2018
Goals from Ibson and Quintero earn all three points for MNUFC

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (April 28, 2018) — Goals from Darwin Quintero and Ibson lead Minnesota United (3-5-0, 9 points) to a 2-1 win over the visiting Houston Dynamo (2-3-2, 8 points), taking three points in its first match of a six-match stretch in which MNUFC plays five matches at home.

“Hopefully it gives us something to build on,” said Head Coach Adrian Heath. “Sometimes you get your rewards at different times. I honestly thought we got a little bit of a reward for some of our play in the last few weeks. It showed great character, teamwork and belief from the guys to dig themselves out of the hole.”

The Loons had to dig themselves out of a less than auspicious start, after Houston’s Alberth Elis opened the scoring in the 10th minute – finding space behind the defense to receive and tap home a low cross from Romell Quioto. MNUFC’s troubles were further compounded in the 30th minute when Christian Ramirez was subbed off with an apparent hamstring injury.

“We’ll know more tomorrow when it settles down a little bit,” Heath said. “Hamstrings are never good for anybody. So we’ll see.”

Ramirez had been the Loons most dangerous player to that point, creating a pair of close calls in the 20th and 26th minutes with a header from a corner and a long-range chip from just inside midfield that nearly found the top right corner.

With yet another of the team’s primary attacking threats sidelined, Darwin Quintero stepped up to fill the void. Quintero showed his ability to create as he leveled the score at one in the 40th minute. Quintero dished to Ibarra, made a run into the box, received the ball back from Ibarra for a headed effort that deflected off the Dynamo defender’s arm and drew a penalty that Quintero coolly converted just inside the right post.

The goal was Quintero’s second to go along with one assist in three games since joining MNUFC from Club America.

“Darwin showed glimpses of unbelievable ability and he’ll be better for another 90 minutes under his belt,” Heath said. “You can already see that quality he’s got. As we start to learn more about him, and he learns more about us, that will certainly be a plus for us moving forward.”

Making his second-straight start, Bobby Shuttleworth turned away four Dynamo chances but no save proved bigger than his highlight reel-worthy stop in the 66th minute. Houston’s DeMarcus Beasley served in a well-placed cross for Mauro Manotas but a sprawling Shuttleworth reached back to deny his headed effort.

The save kept the match level at one and set the stage for Ibson’s heroics just minutes later.

“That was a big save,” Heath said. “You need keepers to make big saves at appropriate times. I thought it kept us in the game.”

With the score even at one, Houston applied heavy pressure and monopolized possession to start the second half, which forced Heath to change his formation to something closer to a 4-3-3—a move he credited with changing the flow of the game and allowing the free-roaming Ibson to find the space in the box he needed to slot home the match-winner.

The Brazilian deftly back-heeled Miguel Ibarra’s service into the box underneath a sprawling defender for his second goal of the campaign and Ibarra’s team-leading third assist.

“It was a great finish,” Heath said. “As soon as we changed the shape, it changed the way the game went. We started to get more and more on the ball and we started to play in their half a bit more.”

The win also marked the MNUFC debut for loanee Alexi Gomez, who came on for Ibson in the 78th minute and quickly showed promising passing chemistry with Quintero that led to a pair of chances.

Minnesota United FC returns home to TCF Bank Stadium on Saturday, May 5 to take on Vancouver Whitecaps FC in a 1:00 p.m. CT start. Pre-match coverage gets underway at 12:30 p.m. on FOX Sports North or streaming on FOX Sports Go and MNUFC Radio on 1500 ESPN.

MINNESOTA UNITED QUOTES SHEET

MNUFC HEAD COACH ADRIAN HEATH 

On what three points do to hit the reset button …

Well, hopefully it gives us something to build from. A little platform to build from. And as I’ve just said to the guys, sometimes you get your rewards at different times. And I honestly thought that we got a little bit of reward for it, some of our play in the last few weeks. Today wasn’t as pretty as I would have liked. Especially with the start they got. It showed great character, teamwork and belief from the guys to dig themselves out of the hole. So obviously pleased with it and we have to keep building. Obviously losing Christian [Ramirez] as well. Hopefully it’s not too bad. We’ll see how he is tomorrow. But it’s another big blow on the back of Ethan [Finlay] and [Kevin] Molino and [Sam] Cronin. You know, it’s not a good situation for us at this moment in time. So, to grind out a result in the way that we did is very pleasing.

On specifics of Christian Ramirez’s injury …

We think it’s a hamstring strain. So, we’ll know more tomorrow when it settles down a little bit. But, you know hamstrings are never good for anybody. So, we’ll see. We’ll see how we are tomorrow.

On Mason Toye’s performance …

Some good little pieces. Some good little moments. You know, he’s still learning the game. Gotta know where to run and when to run. But he has lots of natural ability. The one where he turned the guy in the box, typical example of what he is. If we can get him isolated against one, he’s got tricks to beat people. And I thought he got a hold of it a little better. Competed in the air a bit better than he has been doing for his size. But he’s still a project. He’s still got an awful lot of work to do. You know, the way the game turns around, he’s maybe going to get an opportunity now. Sometimes quicker than you think. But it’s up to him to keep working hard, listening, and hopefully taking what he’s doing well onto the field.

On Carter Manley’s performance …

And he had another one tonight. He’s playing against [Romell] Quioto. As I said before, him and [Alberth] Elis are probably as quick as anyone in the league. You know, he had a little mistake late on when the ball went under his foot. But he stuck at it. And as I say, he’ll be a lot better for the games that he’s had under his belt the next few weeks. He’ll be delighted to maybe play against somebody that’s probably not going to fly a winger against him. Because he can enjoy playing a little bit more.

On the team’s performance as a whole …

On the whole, I was pleased with the commitment and the shape of the team. And as I say, it’s a big win for us to move on from. Hopefully this is a little platform. A little springboard for us to get some wins at home in the next few weeks.

On Bobby Shuttleworth’s point-blank save …

Big save. Need keepers. Goals change games. And you need keepers to make big saves at appropriate times. And I thought it kept us in the game. They were pushing forward at that particular time. It was a great ball in, great cross, good header. And it’s a great save.

On his level of concern when the team conceded early again …

Always. Because as I said in the week. Against this team, these are probably as dangerous as anybody on the counterattack in MLS. That’s why you see them games like you did early in the season, when they beat Atlanta. Atlanta had the ball and were in their half for every goal of the game conceded. So, the thing that you don’t want to be doing is chasing the game and that was my only worry. Conceding that early, people get desperate and start to chase the game and do things that they shouldn’t. And then that leaves it in even more space for them to utilize, which with their speed and the front three, is difficult. Hard to combat at times.

On Jerome Thiesson’s performance …

I thought Jerry did really well actually against Elis. Because he’s really difficult to handle.

On Ibson’s goal and if he was out of position …

Probably. Running out of place again. But no, it was a great finish, again. And it obviously just changed the shape a little bit. At that stage we’d gone to more of a 4-3-3. And obviously Darwin [Quintero] has done it before.

On Darwin Quintero’s performance in his home debut …

I thought Darwin showed glimpses of unbelievable ability and he’ll be better for another 90 minutes under his belt. To get that extra bit of sharpness. But you can already see the quality he’s got. And as we start to learn more about him and he learns more about us, that will certainly be a plus for us moving forward.

On Ibson and Rasmus Schuller both having a roaming playing style …

Yeah. I think at times when they play three in there, because they play their No. 10 in there, against the two midfield players as well, it’s difficult for them at times. And that was the reason I changed the shape. Because we have to get a footing in the game. They had about a 15-minute spare in the second half where we really couldn’t get out of our own half and we couldn’t get any quality possession. As soon as we changed the shape, actually, it changed the way the game went again. We started to get more and more on the ball and we started to play in their half a bit more. So, it’s one of those tweaks in the system that makes you look like you know what you’re doing.

On playing three in the midfield and if he is going to do that more moving forward …

It’s something that we’ve spoke about before. Because I’ve seen Alexi Gómez play in that attacking sort of role as a three central-midfield players. But we’ve got enough bodies in there now to do that on the road. And it showed that Darwin has played that role before. Very sensibly getting his position nice and early, defensively. But really using, on the counterattack, when the ball turns over, using that space in between. So those would maybe give us something to think about moving forward.

On what he thought about the guys that made their season debuts …

Well, you know what Collin [Martin] is all about. He’s been working really hard in training. And Alexi, he hasn’t played a lot of football of late, but he showed some nice touches. We know he’s athletic. We know he’s got a great left foot. So, we’re pleased we got him on the field. He’ll be better for next week, too.

On his roster as the transfer window shuts on May 1 …

Well, that was probably a little bit better about a week or so ago. Ethan was still going and Christian hadn’t got injured. Hey, we’ll see what we can do. I think this week will be a little bit busy for a few clubs. And if something came about that we thought would help us moving forward, then we might be interested. If not, we’ll stay with what we’ve got. And we’ll work with the group that we have. And if they work as hard as they’ve done tonight, then we’ll get points.

MNUFC GOALKEEPER BOBBY SHUTTLEWORTH

On the mindset when the team conceded early again …

Yeah. It’s frustrating. I mean, seems like we’re doing the same stuff in training. Going over it. The managers told us our responsibilities. And it’s something we go over every single week. And we just kind of keep conceding the same type of goal. So, I think it’s definitely frustration, but then you just have to put it past you. I think we did a good job rebounding from that.

On what he saw on the Houston goal …

Well, he just got played in and I think he does a really good job of putting that cross between myself, and [Michael Boxall] and [Francisco] Calvo with pace. Elis is kind of lurking on the back post, like he usually is.

On his save in the 66th minute …

Yeah, I think they kind of were exploiting a lot of space down our right side. Easily played a ball in and couldn’t come forward. So, just dropped back to the line and tried to react as best as I could, and not give up a big rebound.

On if his save in the 66th minute was a turning point for the team …

Yeah. I mean, that’s my job. To make saves back there. So obviously that’s a bigger one, with it being 1-1 at the time. That’s something that hopefully the goalkeepers can do going forward.

On being able to snap the losing streak, and start a home stand now …

It’s a big boost. I don’t think, we haven’t started the season great. And I think there’s been some good performances and we’ve played well at times and played poorly at times. I think this is a good step forward for us, but it’s just the first step. And we do have a bunch at home here. And it’s important for us, if we do want to make a playoff push here, we gotta make this place a fortress and we gotta pick up points at home. Like I said, first step going forward, is back to work on Monday.

On what it means to play a couple of matches after sitting a few …

Yeah, I mean, I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t frustrating. I was dealing with some vertigo in preseason and it took me a while to shake all that. So, it’s a position I’ve been in before. I’ve been around the block, I’ve been playing for a while now. Just continue to work hard in training, and if my number is called, I’ll be ready to roll.

On what brought on the vertigo …

I’ve gotten it before. It’s just kind of something that comes and goes. I haven’t had it for probably three or four years now, but it lasted a little bit longer than it usually does.

MNUFC MIDFIELDER MIGUEL IBARRA 

On getting three points … 

We deserved it from our past games. I mean, at home we’re hard to beat. We had to put up a performance to get three points out of it.

On shifting the game plan with the substitutions of Mason Toye and Alexi Gómez …

I haven’t really played with Alexi. We’ve had maybe two or three practices with him. And Mason, we already know what he’s all about. Just energy up front. Our game plan was put Mason in, he’s going to run. Alexi came in and he helped us out a lot combining with Darwin. Those were some positive moves for us.

On recovering after conceding early to score twice and get the win … 

We talked about it before the game. If we concede one goal, let’s not put our heads down. It’s just one goal and everybody can come back from a goal. Again, we conceded early. We have to work on that again. Coming from behind again is not what we want. We want to hit the net first. Fortunately, we were able to defend well and not concede a second goal and were able to put two in the back of the net.

On what changed when Christian Ramirez was subbed off … 

Christian is more of a hold-up player, so we were kind of looking forward to playing up top with him and Quintero. Once we knew Mason was coming in we knew he was kind of a different player than Christian. Mason likes to do the runs in behind the shoulders of the defenders. His work ethic up there helped us out a lot.

On matching up against DaMarcus Beasley … 

Before the game the [coaching staff] told me he’s already a little bit aged so go at him. Go at him with your speed and you’ll be able to beat him. My plan was just stay out wide and try to go at him as much as possible.

On starting the past few matches and mixing in with the attacking players … 

I think from last year to this year my confidence has been boosted a lot. Now loosing Ethan and Kevin Molino, it’s just helped me to saying I’ve got to step it up and help the team out because I know they have confidence in me. I just got to keep working hard. Darwin has been helping me, Calvo has been helping me. Giving me confidence. They’ve been a big boost to me.

On providing the assist to Ibson’s goal … 

My instinct was just this little slip in. On the corner, again, they gave it to me. My instinct was just whip it in. Someone is going to be there and fortunately it was Ibson again. I don’t know how he’s always there. He said he didn’t think I saw him. If I would’ve hit it over him he probably would have let me have it. My instinct was just hit in there. Maybe there’s a deflection or whatever. It’s going to go in.

On Ibson always finding passes … 

Just another body in the box. So, him being in there … you don’t really see him in there and defenders don’t really pay attention to him as much. But I’m glad he was in there.

On stressing three points to start this home stretch … 

We have five or six games at home, so we’re a hard team to beat at home. I think for us to get three points every game at home is a big stretch us. So that’s our mentality right now. We just got three points tonight and now we focus on the next game.

MNUFC FORWARD MASON TOYE 

On his first performance with big minutes … 

I thought as the game progressed I kind of found my feet and I gained a little bit of confidence. You know, in the beginning it was a little shaky. I lost some balls. But as the game progressed, I thought I did well and I played pretty good today.

On having to enter the lineup due to injuries … 

Obviously, I’m trying to break into the team. It’s unfortunate that Abu and Christian have been out with injuries, but now I have an opportunity and I’m going to try to take it.

On how the game changed when Alexi Gómez came in … 

I mean, at the end of the day when we were going forward, there’s not really a specific game plan. We’re just trying to play soccer. Obviously, those two guys –– those three guys –– Miguel, Alexi and Darwin are all really good at soccer, so I was just trying to get myself in good positions, move off the ball and try to get another goal. So, I think we all played pretty well together.

On how important is was to get a win after four losses … 

It’s huge, especially at home. We had a great come-out from the fans tonight … You know, we had like 21,000 people here, so that was pretty awesome. But it was huge for us to get back on a win streak. Hopefully we can come back with another win; we’re home again next week, so I think it will be huge if we can establish a winning streak at home.

MNUFC DEFENDER CARTER MANLEY 

On the game …

It was definitely a tough game, those are the best wingers that I have gone up against this season. It was a big challenge, but an experience to learn from.

On his conversation with Ibson in the second half …

[Ibson] was telling me to settle down and play my game, trying to give me advice and help me out.

On what was going through his head at that moment … 

It was nice to see that the guys have confidence in me and still believe in me and give me that motivation.

On going up against the toughest wingers he has faced this season …

They are very dynamic, quick and have a lot of experience.

¡CAMPEONES DE CONCACAF!

Apr 26, 2018

¡CAMPEONES DE CONCACAF!

La Fortaleza Rojiblanca vibró como nunca y en los minutos finales se convirtió en el jugador clave que el Guadalajaranecesitaba para imponerse al Toronto FC en la Gran Final de la Concacaf Liga de Campeones 2018 tras igualar en el global 3-3 y después llevarse el triunfo en la tanda de penales por 4-2, hecho que además de sumar un trofeo más a sus vitrinas le hará disputar su primer Mundial de Clubes de la FIFA.

Los primeros minutos del partido fueron un vaivén de emociones en ambas porterías, pero fue Chivas el que generó las de mayor peligro y desde el 2’ se quedó cerca de inaugurar el marcador en un centro por derecha de Isaac Brizuela que Rodolfo Pizarro remató de cabeza en el corazón del área por encima de la cabaña de Alexander Bono. La respuesta canadiense no se hizo esperar y al 9’ Rodolfo Cota se impuso en un mano a mano ante Jozy Altidore, quien estrelló su disparo en el guardameta. Al 12’ Pizarro condujo la redonda desde tres cuartos de cancha y al llegar al límite del área grande buscó definir bombeado, pero el arquero canadiense estuvo atento y se quedó con la redonda.

El abrelatas llegó al 18’ luego de que Pizarro se sacó el sombrero y tocó filtrado por el centro del área para Orbelín, quien fríamente controló el esférico y definió suave pegado al poste. Después de la anotación el Toronto se hizo de la pelota y respondió la afrenta apenas 6 minutos después, tras una gran jugada individual de Nicolas Hasler quien tocó retrasado desde la línea de fondo para que Jozy Altidore capitalizara la jugada.

Al 31’ Alan Pulido se apoyó de pared con Pizarro por la banda izquierda y luego se encaminó a toda velocidad rumbo al área y centró raso, sin embargo Carlos Cisneros no logró impactar el balón. Justo cuando estaba por concluir la primera mitad Sebastian Giovinco adelantó al equipo de la MLS luego de que aprovechó una desatención defensiva y su disparo entro a la portería pegado a la base del poste izquierdo.

En el complemento los dirigidos por Matías Almeyda pusieron ese extra que se requería y se desbordaron al ataque en busca de conseguir las anotaciones que le permitieran retomar su ventaja en el global; el asedio a la cabaña de Bono comenzó desde el 47’ tras un pase largo de Pulido para el ‘Charal’ que Orbelín remató de cabeza por encima de la cabaña. De nueva cuenta al 52’ Pineda se quedó cerca de conseguir el segundo, pero cruzó de más su tiro.

Al 61’ el recién ingresado Jesús Godínez sacó un potente disparo en los linderos del área, pero la pelota pegó en la base del poste izquierdo. El Guadalajara no cesó ni un instante en su búsqueda del gol del campeonato y en los minutos finales del encuentro estuvo cerca de conseguirlo, al 85’ en un disparo que Eduardo López estrelló en el arquero y al 87’ en un tiro de esquina que Oswaldo Alanís remató a las manos de Alexander Bono. En la definición desde los 11 pasos, los rojiblancos se llevaron la victoria al imponerse por 4-2 gracias a la perfección en sus 4 ejecuciones.

Gran muestra de corazón y amor por la camiseta

Toronto, Ontario.- El gol que anotó apenas iniciado el encuentro le permitió al Guadalajara tomar calor en medio del frío extremo que se dejó sentir durante la Final de Ida de la Liga de Campeones de la Concacaf 2018 y de nueva cuenta Rodolfo Pizarro fue un factor determinante para que el Rebaño Sagradopudiera imponerse ante el Toronto FC y dar un paso más rumbo al Mundial de Clubes de la FIFA.

“Contento por el gol tempranero, eso nos sirvió mucho para el desarrollo del partido porque le generó mucha desconcentración al rival y tuvieron que cambiar su esquema. Estoy muy orgulloso de integrar un equipo de puros mexicanos y la verdad es que le metemos mucho corazón y siempre buscamos ir adelante en busca de conseguir un resultado positivo”, refirió el mediocampista.

Para el tamaulipeco, el empate momentáneo en el marcador no influyó en el ánimo del equipo rojiblanco que nuevamente mostró que está hecho para afrontar de la mejor manera los partidos decisivos, ya que puso el corazón por delante y se mantuvo firme hasta que logró retomar su ventaja y el próximo miércoles deberán mostrar una exhibición similar para culminar la obra en el Estadio Akron.

“Creo que cuando jugamos partidos como el de hoy apretando al rival, imponiendo nuestro estilo y siendo ofensivos, es muy difícil que alguien nos gane, hoy lo hicimos muy bien contra un equipo respetable y difícil, batallamos con el clima y aún así respondimos de la mejor manera pese a todas las adversidades que encontramos, ahora deberemos mantener este nivel para el partido definitivo en nuestra casa”, finalizó Rodolfo Pizarro.

DAN ABRAHAMS: HOW BODY LANGUAGE IS A GAME CHANGER

DAN ABRAHAMS: HOW BODY LANGUAGE IS A GAME CHANGER

Youth Soccer Players, as well as Professional Players, need to Pay Attention to Body Language

What Does Your Body Language Say About Your Abilities, Determination and Confidence?

Global sports psychologist and author specializing in soccer, Dan Abrahams is based in England and has helped hundreds of professional soccer players – many of them who play in the English Premier League (EPL). Players from Crystal Palace, QPR, Fulham, and West Ham United among other clubs have benefited from Abrahams insights and advice.

As a regular columnist for GoalNation, Abrahams wants to help youth soccer coaches and players reach their highest levels of development. Abrahams also wants to help soccer parents understand what it takes to be successful at every level of this highly competitive field of dreams.

In Soccer: Body Language Checks 

I’ve recently returned from a trip to Philadelphia where I presented at the United Soccer CoachesConvention. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to present to an audience of about five hundred soccer coaches, all who were looking for cutting-edge ideas to take back to their home clubs, colleges, schools, and organizations.

I started with what I think is one of the most electrifying videos I’ve ever seen related to the mental side of the sport. I showed them a brief clip of the 2011 Rugby World Cup Final between New Zealand and France.

Now I know rugby isn’t a massive sport in the U.S. but I have to say the audience was transfixed by what they saw. I didn’t actually show them any clips of the game itself. The footage I exposed them to was from before the game. And, even the least enthusiastic rugby fans probably know what I showed, especially when New Zealand are involved.

Yes, I showed the Haka.

But no, it wasn’t the Haka that I had the audience pay attention to. It was actually the French team and what they specifically did during the Kiwi’s legendary war dance.

As the New Zealand players went through their ferocious dance, the French team formed themselves into an arrow or spear.

And as the Haka continued, the French players started to walk forward towards the Haka. In essence, they were piercing the heart of the Haka.

OK, SO WHAT I HEAR YOU SAY. WHAT DIFFERENCE WOULD THAT MAKE?

For me, the reason why the French team did this was to change the meaning of the Haka. The French were creating a new meaning, one that says, ‘We’re not scared of your Haka, in fact, we’re going to pierce it. We are stronger and more powerful. We will play front foot rugby. We will play to win. We will be aggressive.’

In short, the French team used their body language, as individuals and as a collective to drive how they felt about the situation…how they felt about the final.

‘WE ARE COMING FOR YOU. WE DRIVE FORWARD TOWARDS YOU.’

Dan Abrahams

This is what body language does more than anything else. It helps you shape the meaning of what you’re doing at any given time.

SO WHEN YOU RUN ONTO THE PITCH FOR AN IMPORTANT SOCCER MATCH STRIVE TO KEEP INCREDIBLE BODY LANGUAGE.

Strive to drive your meaning for the game. Run onto the pitch on your toes. Alert, alive and lively. Shape yourself into the kind of player you want to be, and hold the sensations that hit your body as you run, move and play.

Youth soccer news: Even relaxed Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid has gerat, confident body language. Here he is in Cardiff, Wales on June 3 2017, during the 2017 UEFA Champions League Final between Juventus and Real Madrid.
Even relaxed Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid has gerat, confident body language. Here he is in Cardiff, Wales on June 3 2017, during the 2017 UEFA Champions League Final between Juventus and Real Madrid.

Hold the sensations that surge through your body as you run, move and play.

So what happened in that rugby final. Well, it was nearly one of the greatest upsets in rugby history. The French team was the overwhelming underdogs. They were playing the most successful sporting team in the world. They were in New Zealand against a hostile crowd. And New Zealand only just about won the game eight to seven.

 

So the French team lost … but they took incredible control of themselves to make it incredibly tight. To make it incredibly uncomfortable for New Zealand. To nearly, so very nearly, win the World Cup.

My challenge to you is to find out what your ‘spear’ and your ‘arrow’ is.

WHAT DOES GREAT BODY LANGUAGE LOOK LIKE TO YOU?

As an individual and as a teammate. Think about this, now and when you are on the field.Capture yourself like a camera lens. What does great body language really look like?
