England in ecstasy
Newspapers at home are full of praise for the performance of the Three Lions after England’s stunning 6-2 victory over Iran. For the ‘Daily Telegraph’, Gareth Southgate’s team are absolute forces to be reckoned with. It sounds similar on the front page of the ‘Daily Star’. The tabloid headlines Tuesday with the play on words: “Sixy Football”, which refers to the number of goals scored yesterday. Same on the cover of the Guardian, telling its readers the phrase “Six Appeal” heats up properly. Meanwhile, double goalscorer Bukayo Saka is the focus of the ‘Daily Mirror’. After “Racism hell from the EM final” In 2020, the 21-year-old was again able to provide moments of happiness in the England dress.
Leo’s last attempt
This World Cup will be the last for Lionel Messi. The Argentinian has not won a World Cup so far, although the 35-year-old has already won four of them. In 2014, the left foot came particularly close to the cup, but failed in the final against Germany (0:1 aet). Now it should be so far. Messi had announced several times in advance that he wanted to take his last chance at the biggest international title. The ‘Corriere dello Sport’ takes a similar view. “Leo’s Last Try”reads the big headline on the front page of the Italian newspaper.
Big games are on the agenda for day three of the World Cup in Qatar. The Spanish ‘as’ sums up the forthcoming duels with a brief but to the point “Awesome Tuesday” together. In addition to Lionel Messi, who will lead his Argentinians into a duel with Saudi Arabia at 11 a.m., Robert Lewandowski will also start the tournament. The Barça striker meets Mexico with the Polish national team (5 p.m.). The super trio will be completed by Kylian Mbappé when France’s national team takes on Australia’s selection (8 p.m.). The ‘Mundo Deportivo’ has a big headline for these three megastars as the tournament begins. “The cracks are coming”can be read there.
