Brandt, a selfie that makes you talk


Bild did not like to see Julian Brandt taking his picture after Germany's defeat against Mexico (0-1) on Sunday afternoon.
The German press has not been soft with its national team, which was unworthy of its status as world champion by losing Sunday against Mexico (0-1). In this concert of critics, Julian Brandt was particularly pinned by Bild, the most popular newspaper in Germany, who did not appreciate to see the midfielder of Leverkusen, all smiles, give a selfie to a young supporter of the Mannschaft right after the final whistle.

Bild justified the 22-year-old: "Of course we're frustrated after such a defeat, that's why people linger over little things," Brandt said, "I wanted to get into the tunnel. Which leads to the cloakroom, I saw this little boy, who shouted for me, I did this in the second (the selfie, ed), I did not think.

Brandt came into play in the 86th minute in place of Timo Werner, and he does not have much to blame himself because he nearly equalized with a superb shot from the left coming up against the outside of the amount of Guillermo Ochoa (89th). Moreover, readers of Bild do not hold it against him. On the survey posted on the site of the German newspaper, 90% of respondents believe that Brand did well to make this selfie with this young supporter. The Mannschaft undoubtedly has more important problems to solve ...

Croatia: Kalinic fired from the selection?

Despite the apparent victory against Nigeria (2-0) in the opening match, morale is not good for all players in the squad of Croatia.

Thus, as revealed by some special envoys, striker Nikola Kalinic would not have appreciated the decision of his coach Zlatko Dalic to place him on the bench of substitutes against Nigeria Saturday night. The striker of AC Milan even refused to come into play during the second period, claiming a backache.

Not having appreciated the behavior of his player, Dalic will hold a press conference in the afternoon to announce the probable exclusion of Kalinic's selection.

  • Ochoa, the wall that shadows Trump


Erika Andiola has a lot in mind ... Shortly after Mexico's victory against Germany on Sunday (1-0) in Moscow at the 2018 World Cup, the former secretary of the press service of Bernie Sanders, an unfortunate candidate for the Democratic primaries of the 2016 US presidential election, tweeted for Donald Trump.



While "Memo" Ochoa has distinguished herself by her prowess in the Mexican goal, the woman relayed an illustration starring the porter in the form of a giant tifo with the following comment: "We have already a wall."  without mentioning the President of the United States directly. A reference, of course, to the anti-immigration wall that Donald Trump wants to erect on the US-Mexico border.

Mercato MU: A  68m€ offer for a Chelsea player?


According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United is preparing to make an offer of 60M £ (around 68M €) to Chelsea for winger Willian. The British newspaper said that Jose Mourinho would be interested in the Brazilian player since January, but that at that time Chelsea was reluctant to sell it. Not always titular, the Brazilian international would hardly live the situation.

For Chelsea, it could be an excellent financial deal: the London club had acquired the player for only 30M € in the summer of 2013. In 166 Premier League matches, the former player Shakhtar Donetsk has scored 25 goals and issued 25 assists.
