tv Kick off - More than Football Deutsche Welle May 25, 2018 6:30pm-7:01pm CEST
higher and higher further and further dirtier and dirtier. the high gloss world of professional sports behind the scenes of bitter truth manipulation exploitation corruption obvious style. of business worth billions but just how murky is the world of sports and reality. dirty games starting june sixth t.w. . when we think of the world cup we think of great players and teams from around the wild. on this edition of kick off i think. that's may take
a look at well cup group featuring brazil brazil who won the world cup more than any other country five times their first opponents in russia will debate costa rica next up will be dogged course in serbia. that leaves us with more to say. with. these two men played for brazil although they never won the world cup divine e.l.v. and say rebels are on their favorites for the upcoming tournament in russia. the fifth of may. and on their home country i am devil but as you will see you will see my give back to. spain also looking for another triumph but off political divisions affecting team unity. the mood on the ground in ocelot in spain or rather catalonia in spain. kick off for a. it's a happy hour with
a rather special well. you're going to bring a few things in style run your moral not by but first preview. when we think of the world cup we think of great players and teams from around the world but there's one thing that all of us associate with success brazil have won the world cup more than any other country five times what we want to know now is do they have what it takes to do it again. brazil will be up against twenty four teams surprise package costa rica along with stereotypical hard men serbia and the highly ranked swiss. only except the youngest football fans how glorious memories of brazil winning the world cup from pele to are now about the country has the ultimate reputation for creating genius attacking players and the current squad is no different. neymar will be one of the best players at the
tournament as long as he recovers from injury in time but who does he have and support is it enough to write a six star to the badge. let's take a closer look. let's start with the obvious one the superstar the national hero now i know it's easy to forget with the circus around him but neymar is insanely good at football. he's been the big guy for brazil since making his debut back in twenty ten the early hype was justified neymar has already passed a ha century of goals for brazil. a little reminder still just twenty six goals have led to something tangible as well one confederations cup and one in lympics title neymar scored four goals at each. part of course they kind of pale into insignificance compared to another competition that did and go so well in brazil obviously. i'm talking about the last world cup brazil's.
neymar actually scored four goals at this one as well maybe he has a quarter or something but he was prevented from scoring any more by a back injury we've seen. before the diagnosis came in the country ground to a whole t.v. was basically showing twenty four hour coverage of neymar trip to the doctors it was a bit weird like he's the second coming of christ it was a. wall of brazil waited with bated breath to see if their savior would recover in time for the semifinal but he didn't and then it all went wrong july twenty fourth seen the worst night in brazil's footballing history and neymar this team went up against germany and got hammered seven one it was the perfect storm of intense pressure over reliance on one ruthless opposition. and it was all perfectly summed up by that face toward him and. so the real question is what's changed since then well firstly they won't be
playing in their own country i was there in two thousand and fourteen and the expectations were through the roof with a touch less pressure on them in a better position to play how they want to do they have the players to take advantage of that. let's dive in and take a closer look. speaking of diving their options and go look pretty good first choice alex song has been a revelation this season marking himself out as one of the world's top keepers on city's edison has done likewise and still struggles to get in the team in defense the old legends a still knocking around younger silva marcello are still very good unfortunately right back danny alvarez will miss out through injury but they have other defensive talents like p.s.g. as martin your sense of back and man city star nilo younger hungry players. and midfielder plays aren't necessarily new but they are improving to remember the show . the football of the most polynya now he's in the form of his life but. likewise
for nineteen years has played a key role in pep guardiola as man city revolution and philippe could change. better than australia now we come to the forwards this is where we really see that it. has some serious support first this month city jesus who is just twenty years old is already a first rate goalscorer. someone to take the gold burden off and i also have regrets i feel me no less of a poacher more of a creator and potentially the perfect foil for the other tick tick tick tick so with the pressure of being the hosts and a much better squad of their disposal brazil serious contenders this time around they are going to charge through that group and make an assault on the final. that only leaves one qualifying spot for the other three teams so joining brazil in
the round of sixteen let's check out the competition starting with costa rica. they were the darlings of twenty four teams surprising everyone by finishing top of the group you can take your reply england and italy. first the good news. the team that not going out last time isn't even at this tournament what the hell is happened to the netherlands. anyway back to costa rica. many of the heroes from four years ago are still around. kalo never spent the last few years is real madrid number one if you haven't been paying attention that's been going pretty well. time hasn't been quite so kind to john campbell he briefly looked said to nail down a place that asked no but since then he's spent most of his time on an impressive loan spells. maybe another world cup is just what he needs to things around
they also have the experience captain brian ruiz to leave the troops. sounds pretty good right but. not a good combination of grit and fled after playing midfield you have no money or macit and voyage which should allow the attacking players to do their thing. which is useful as they have some serious creativity in their ranks. on top which is one of the most experienced of the bunch but he'll be able to assisted by his younger team mates like. but all eyes will be on another player who is having a. surrogate milinkevich has become one of the best midfielders in syria this season. his performances could be crucial in eighteen. with natural finishes. so
that leaves us with one more and they're the favorites to join brazil in the second round switzerland. they are one of the top ranked teams in the world despite lacking genuine star quality. has had a good career in syria but at thirty four he's in the autumn of his career you can pretty much sum up the swiss team is good but not great just look at. he's going to good record for the team but has had a nightmarish couple of years in the premier league. is a dead bolt specialist who's been part of midlands dismal campaign and even their. right his type from the last world cup has gone the same way. justin should cheery scored a hat trick in brazil he was a pioneer and looked set for a bright future but in the meantime he's wound up getting relegated and star is still a good player and the top scorer in the current squad but like the rest of the same things not quite top level so who's going through out of those three it's a tough one but switzerland record
a major tournament could. they go to the round of sixteen last time out and the euros two years ago they know how to get out of the group but not much further. are charging through to the knockout phase followed by switzerland. i think serbia will just miss out. and costa rica will finish bottom of the group but it will be tight you know what i think brazil are my favorites to win the world cup we've already overcome the demons ones by beating germany in a friendly now maybe russia twenty eighteen will give them the chance to lay the ghosts of the world cup to rest. this. is a reversal and just danielle bags full of blunders legal starts and brazil international. bank rescue lifting the cup in russia you.
have the. key key. possibly died. or probably not who see clovis instead it's all the little money in the bill keller them all thrown up at this point that there are signs. he can swap at the schools there are signs once that someone forge their water pulls up their purse could put up with the of playing with my goddamn eyes. but as you are trying to make a boije sick i'm going to listen what happened over there are their own teach it. full bore what they want from me keeping all songs about their sourcing and this idiot google knows his sales very cina they are so listen to your now would not watch it was nothing i'll procedure but as a little bit of those people their money yes i know they are very nasty i mean tim a second pm but as the all you are saying the castle is on the finance or he wants to let some keyboard any senior figure out ask obvious as

usual got the need to chew. there's a couple known nothing sunanda there but as you can into the parts will tackle our core populous enormous ski cheer for the for fourth country dark of the track and he. will need to move from my sit at the new before the ball to all those who are sent to bed and that there are civil cinci there by their own usual wall. or insight that. they offer hope of a few simple. mindedness a little bit there might be a way that. they start seem a little bit lower. blood a kick or that will sit down with all their god for that phineas i'm going on
compliments bob all right up on the. dog the dog don't mesh well i was born choir you are sure you are for me to say yes. probably all miss and then there. are the farm achilles raga and what i said. by so long there ms mitchell that board sought care granted to fit in chile net water set up on by name either you some we put want to name michael mistletoe back with us in this song but as the leader got born we can give you one easter. i mean that your being here the boys dear ones earn those i say listen with you're going to be a water. bottle maybe feeding motherless in or shipping some maison you kiss him into dust in this song but as in the movie we need even some views from him then they all key and when given his most of which you've really quick or poor when
he died in prague can achieve you chose opposite of one. of. course it was said to be a civil war. still disaster in a queue for you but as you peer dia put out but i live to key you see his. eyes without the key. was on my face saw another almost. for some. soft. spot after the. rush to but as you. see if you just simple. but as you are. the more deer
in the. pool football g. who is as they ignored us. and now so one of those world cup favorites spank the winners in south africa twenty ten kick off reports are happy and assesses the chances of his how you country. a country with an identity crisis. you can really feel how i think things are running. similar to see if i still feel that if you feel look. like that ever said it would be a little selfish be baseless like i said they did look at the close look most of the element. of work on. the team full of
new young players who still need to prove what they're capable of. but it is presented here in the name of it's a mystery that could. well you have to tell them to look at you have the minimum of what is just a big. question see. if. the person is missing i'm. full i. i. i i. i used to go i watched him square in central madrid among a crowd of thousands of thousands of people i was pretty warm express it well i. know the spanish national team is heading to russia after a very disappointing performance in brazil in two thousand and fourteen so the new
generation of players ready to bring spain bag opposition speed has recently been hit by a crisis that could also affect the spanish national team it's an issue with a long history but he never hit such a boiling point in my lifetime to find out the true consequences of the crisis i need to visit one place. pick up the region of. the city has a very particular relationship with the spanish national team. or use buffalo has been the cradle of the national team in two thousand and ten spain won the world cup with seven players in the lineup for the final five. and if you let me know of you only really you know. how i don't know. you now but phil and i said the center for political movement hoping to break away from the rest of the country. in these buildings. in the pens from spain
that sparked a deep political crisis still far from being resolved i got to learn so you. when you're simple get it honestly if you're going to be a little silly you're infamous like i let me know that i was going to go nevertheless listen when you say if i knew all your stuff you say i don't know how mortified i still is going to spend your last he had me on the out i get that you know. this but you know a lot of good then you have to have it last surely you have no idea. what are the consequences of these highly charged political atmosphere for the world of football spin have been making propelling your since two thousand and four when they faced a rule. stadium here i made sure to be here because the spanish national team for the newspaper sport. you seek out a. conflict with of them but i would just go back and if you got your must pass by the. other i don't know if you got your bus will you stick around and do this in.
your field yes but with a lot of serious here i start to see if we were left without. good no doubt. shot out of a no i we have a rest of us that they were before do you know he would ever say it in a movie and i would of course have a. little bit i wish i was a child i feel they were about the. central market on how you can find people campaigning for this money as national team and activists promoting cuts i don't mean dependence just meters away from each other. but when it comes to football classical where both ideologies really clash while real funds supports bunnies you need much of the bar side crowd support secession. and there's one man bodies this controversy. that make it not a good thing about this bit of it but i think that might get into some of it if
you're about to go down a bit to get some i don't know and i'm going to be cynical enough why didn't i never. made up that. one. the barcelona defender seen by many in spain as pro independence and he's been booed instead inspire on the country was the best independent east. this afternoon tell me. you're given pinnacle or we're going to start because you get into. other cars to see the family of them i didn't expect to see one. performance really feel from you know living another commitment thirty one was sad and most of it i think that. you have an escort. by which i believe that you know that talk about the fight back you know directly across the. next world cup you know before our bodies are real madrid game you can really feel
how high tensions are running we heard about the fans something songs about unconstrained uncaring. claiming for the independence of catalonia these are the fans of one of the biggest clubs in the war and they are singing the country many of the players would be representing. thank you see question will this atmosphere affect spain's performance in russia. could ok though particularly for us because our professional. would do well this is our stock other how they put a government that your service today by a lot of additional. we. called our media have. tried plenty of some of this stuff is there probably are people. out of power but i had a lot in. the bible with tell us you're going to have at but another in mass and. what i mean pick up became a football reporter for the t.v. channel six the sun i was full of the spanish national team very closely. is so
exactly a lot about a feeling in the all that all that until melissa. ok i'm hopeful that that meant that it set it off other than that he broke a few nalut i guess what it is that. some people don't think politics will affect the spanish players see russia but then i wonder what that spain need to be back in the fight for the title. let's focus on the players because today is also the farewell of fundraising is that all said he wouldn't be playing here makes this and. these will be his last world cup with his goal in extra time against the netherlands in a spec game spain its first full champion see if he's one of the last members of spain's scolding generation which dominated world football for six years is the new way for periods really can reach the same level. jurgen i find i. was just going to
call but i. believe. much of something. spain's former world keeper is stuck in his fifth. year but i think the bush family will do i will call on those who are standing in the world when the i was disappointed like i would say that i said a few. he lost both of you actually want. to look at the stuff it befits our personal twenty four teams in france twenty sixteen new coach he looked to give us world buck fifty space since he took over the team cost him last. look at the uniform honestly if you are. a simple i'm talking about the photo you could be. considered maybe just as we were told was created unanimously is humiliating for you when those who are that you know from tsunamis to telephone pole. by this time your straw man must respond now and take yourself you know the people on. the good who are we are not many see that one of us they are look at us when people are in
public. they are so young guys hungry for triumphs like reality because buckets or i'd let you go solo but they aren't the only ones. out upper deck or blow up which are your school because i cannot believe. that when you start a lesson if you just buy your. story cautiously by yourself well part of us who covered the local records here and have your mother question is will want to get up in a while you have to look at the. dollars worth of break up where they go but that affordable care about the people are about here getting more tough in the sense you know what i mean. is full credit if you wish. he had a few c.d.'s. getting imagine what the quality spanglish half and we took him for. i.
i. it seems spain are ready to jump into that arena in russia and become again full time comes. when they say that you have cars and i'm like you know maybe spain these lucky or unlucky in politics will see. well one thing is for sure they're playing if you put up a fight before the be. the butt. of. the book. the book. the bomb. the book. the
