He was not well and, speaking with doctors, it was better to stay in Madrid,’ said Zidane when asked about Bale by reporters. The most original Toon kit in a long time, a lot better than the cream-cracker effort from two seasons back. I’m way better than that. Recently Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett labelled Zidane ‘a disgrace’ for the way the club’s record signing has been treated. There was hope that he was close to signing for Serie B side Como but passport issues has stopped that from materialising. Given the captain’s armband against Wales and gave a solid display, before comfortably slotting in on the left side in the win against Belgium. Gave an equally disappointing display (as Kane). Kane intercepted a wayward back-pass by Marcelo after 22 minutes. It is simply my belief that Kane is the one man in the squad Pochettino could not afford to lose in this window, or at any point in the last three years. There was not much evidence of him being Spurs’ main man that night.
On Tuesday night in Turin, Ajax once again confounded all expectation by demolishing another of European football’s biggest names. His British record move will carry plenty of pressure and expectation but Grealish seems to shine under the brightest of lights and so City are unlikely to be too concerned of him shrinking. This will likely be 0-0 now, totally jinxed by this segment, but Oxford United and Newcastle United should, on paper, see plenty of goals. He started twice for the Three Lions, and wasn’t properly tested against Belgium despite the visitors having plenty of possession. Bale was spotted teeing off on the 14th hole at around 8pm on Tuesday evening, with the game having kicked off at 6pm Spanish time. Having secured a 4-1 victory away at Real Madrid in the final 16, Ajax arrived at Juventus with a 1-1 scoreline from the first leg in Amsterdam. That allowed the club some wiggle room as Paratici secured another loan deal for Morata, while youngsters Weston McKennie and Federico Chiesa both arrived on season-long loan deals with a view to buy the following summer. He then secured a move to the Rams in 2020 but his issues off the field sadly saw him make just one appearances before he took the decision to recover.
With Aaron Wan-Bissaka currently struggling on the opposing flank, the 27-year-old has also shown the ability to make tackles and clearances in defence, and was perhaps unfortunate to be dragged off for Paul Pogba on that fateful evening in Leipzig. Tottenham started well with Navas forced to make early saves to prevent an own goal from Raphael Varane and deny an effort from Erik Lamela. No, Tottenham Hotspur. That is not how you spell Gretzky. Here is the truest measure of Kane’s class: Go through the respective line-ups of Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City when they face up this weekend. Harry Kane’s first-half strike proved enough as Tottenham claimed a narrow 1-0 victory over Real Madrid in their pre-season Audi Cup meeting in Munich. His own personal story is inspiring in itself, as Veltman has overcome a serious cruciate ligament injury over the past year and is now firmly back into the first-team picture.
The Cameroonian was prised away from Barcelona with the promise of regular first-team football. Madrid have not followed up on their comments about Bale, and it remains unclear if or when he will return to the first-team fold. Manchester City have also shown an interest as have Liverpool, while Bayern are showing an interest, too. Manchester United also attempted to sign Eriksen but couldn’t reach an agreement in time. Christian Eriksen and Danny Rose both started for Spurs despite recent transfer speculation, while Gareth Bale was left in Spain purportedly due to illness. Jamie Carragher believes Christian Eriksen is not on the level to play for Real Madrid or Barcelona. He wrote in The Telegraph: ‘Eriksen is not at Real or Barcelona’s level. Real striker Rodrygo saw a goal disallowed for offside before fellow teenager Troy Parrott almost grabbed Tottenham’s second in the dying moments but saw his low shot strike the post.
