The World Cup Hits and Misses

World Cup

Whether you are cheering on your country or rooting against them, you have to admit that the World Cup has been a hit and miss affair. The United States have a shaky record, while England have a sparkling one.

England’s record at the World Cup on the upswing

Despite a successful World Cup run last year, England’s record at the World Cup on the upswing is far from positive. The side have failed to win a World Cup since 1996. However, they have been close in recent years and will face defending champions France in the quarter-finals in Russia. The pressure on England to qualify for the 2022 tournament in Qatar is mounting.

England have been knocked out of three successive series to the West Indies. However, they have been surprisingly solid in qualification, winning three of four games. They also have a good record against countries other than Home Nations.

England won 2-0 against Tunisia and drew 0-0 against Poland. They then beat Moldova home and away. They were also unbeaten in their qualifying campaign.

United States’ record at the World Cup on the downswing

Despite a number of appearances over the past two decades, the United States’ World Cup record has taken a serious hit. In the first quarter of the 20th century, the country failed to qualify for the tournament on nine occasions, including two trips to the Round of 16. After a run in the 1990s, the team has not made it past the quarterfinals in two World Cups.

The United States has had its share of highs and lows over the past 80 years. In the inaugural World Cup, the U.S. men’s team finished third in the group, behind Argentina and Uruguay. However, it was the best finish for the United States in a World Cup.

It wasn’t until the 1970s that the team began to show some consistent results. The United States won the World Cup in 1950. They made two more appearances in the tournament, but failed to make the semi-finals.

Gareth Bale’s performance in the World Cup

Whether it’s winning a trophy, scoring a goal, or just being a good player, Gareth Bale has shown that he has what it takes to be a world-class player. The 33-year-old Welsh captain is known as a player who can bring a team together and perform at a high level. However, he also has a history of injuries and social miscues.

He has not started a game since September. And he hasn’t scored a goal in two months. And it seems unlikely that he’ll score another goal before the World Cup.

Gareth Bale was one of the stars of the 2010-11 UEFA Champions League, scoring two stunning goals against Austria in March. And he was also a key part of Tottenham Hotspur’s run to the finals in 2012. In fact, he was named to the UEFA Team of the Year for the first time.

Robin Gosens’ struggle to get playing time in Serie A

Serie A left-back Robin Gosens has been battling with Ivan Perisic for a starting berth this season at Inter. The German international defender has not enjoyed his best time at the Italian club. However, he is hopeful of rediscovering his form soon.

Inter Milan are hoping to cut their ties with Gosens. The wingback is not interested in leaving the Italian club. However, he believes he can make a name for himself in the Italian capital.

Gosens was born in Emmerich am Rhein, Germany, and raised by a Dutch father and a German mother. He has played for local youth teams, and also tried out for Borussia Dortmund. However, he failed to win a contract at the German club. He then went on to play for Vitesse and Heracles, before moving to Atalanta in 2017.

Gosens scored 10 goals and eight assists in his first season at Atalanta. The 28-year-old defender is now valued at around EUR30 million. The German has been linked with a number of top clubs, including Leicester, Manchester City, and Juventus. He was also a key part of Atalanta’s Champions League campaign. However, he has struggled to find the form he had in his first season at Inter.

England vs Iran match preview

During the 2022 FIFA World Cup, England will face Iran in the opening match of group B. While the match looks relatively straightforward, this is a game that will test the grit of both sides.

As expected, England will be favourites to win. However, the quality of their opponents could be key to success.

There are some key players that will be vital for England. Among them is 19-year-old midfielder Jude Bellingham. He is one of 18 teenagers to be involved in the tournament.

The squad that Gareth Southgate has assembled looks similar to the one that qualified for the Euro 2020. While this may be the most powerful team in the world at the moment, the quality of their opposition could prove vital.

The World Cup has given England a chance to prove they can win on the big stage. However, they have come up short in recent years. They haven’t won a competitive match in over a year.
