Hosted drawing grid male competition
On Wednesday, January 9, will be launched in the first year tennis tournament “Grand Slam” – the Australian Open. The first to come into the battle men who have learned rivals in the first circle of qualification. There are three of us players.
Ivan Sergeyev (№ 155 in the ATP rankings) will meet with Adrian Mannarino (France, 160). Alexander Nedovesov (№ 205) was a rival Thiemo de Bakker (Netherlands, 129). Denis Molchanov (№ 242) play with Farukh Dustov (Uzbekistan, 229).
I must say that of the trio only Ivan Sergeyev game based on “Grand Slam.” In 2010 Sergeyev reached the second round of the Australian Open.
The ceremony of awarding the best FIFA has already become an inherent part of the first days of the new year. For football players show closes the holiday week, which many are devoted to games and training. But in Zurich was able to relax: the red carpet, the stars on the stage and in the audience. Even the newly Russian Gerard Depardieu attended the show in the company of the FIFA President Sepp Blatter. Whether discussing the vicissitudes of the World Cup matches in the capital of Mordovia, or boasted that he managed to make not only Russian, but it looks like, and a new passport.
By the way, our country was represented at the ceremony also model Irina Shayk, which invariably accompanies her lover Cristiano Ronaldo. So this time smiling companion set off gloomy Portuguese. He hardly ever harbored any illusions about the prospects for the evening to get the main prize – the “Golden Ball”. On the podium of the main favorite Cristiano and Messi shared Andres Iniesta, whose face seemed to read, “I’m above it all”. In general, all three of them at the press conference said that the major concern for the future award winners do not. But, perhaps, to some extent, all three of the evil one.
Absent competition Messi and Ronaldo is a byword. A Iniesta certainly not so happily stay all the time in the shadow of the Argentine genius, especially for the year in which Lionel won a Spanish Cup, while Andres led the team to victory in the Euro. However, apart from Messi undisputed status as the best player in the world was another trump card – in 2012, he rewrote the “eternal record” Mueller, scoring more than 90 goals a year.
By tradition, the main intrigue diluted awards smaller value. For a start the team announced a symbolic year by FIFA and the International Federation of Professional Footballers (FIFPro). However, it would be more correct to call the team the championship of Spain – five players, “Real” and “Barcelona” and Falcao of “Athletics”. On the one hand, the strength of giants Examples can be no doubt as the class of the same with Ronaldo Messi, Iniesta, Casillas. On the other – good players in the world a lot, and strangely enough, in the national team players had no place finalist of the Champions League and the Euro from the “Chelsea”, “Bavaria”, the Italian team. And the presence of a conditional command Marcelo and Dani Alves shows that the space for them could be found.
Prize winner of the coaching though the Spanish league for a long time does not work, but is the same country. However, there just was not any disputes – Vicente del Bosque led the “red fury” to the success of the Euro in two years after the triumph at the World Cup. Duty he noticed that the next great victory owes its players, but the example of other strong teams in composition shows that whatever the choice of performers – the role of a coach can never be underestimated.
The only winner of the competition in the men’s nominations are not from Spain this evening – Miroslav Stoch from “Fenerbahce”. But, really, it would be better and the trophy named after Puskas got the same Falcao. Of all the goals presented not only in the finals, but in the original vote by FIFA, the ball – one of the most banal. Elegant execution, but there are a lot of heads slaughtered around the world, the competition is Stoch were bare exceptional. The secret of success seems to be simple, if you read the reviews of the victory of the Slovak. “Miroslav must tell us thanks for the clock support in the vote,” – such statements by Turkish fans you will meet many. That trust such an important choice open online voting.
Winner of the “Golden Ball”, fortunately, were determined captains and coaches of national teams, as well as some members of the media. Their vote was all just predictable. It should be noted that Igor Denisov and Fabio Capello agreed that the best was the Messiah. While midfielder put in second place Ronaldo and Ibrahimovic in third, and the coach gave voice not only Cristiano, but Pirlo.
In the end, with a score of 41.6% against 23.68% Ronaldo Messi received the “Golden Ball” for the fourth consecutive time. And last year’s hat-trick was an incredible achievement, what can we say about poker. Willing to argue with the fact that the victory is not only Argentine predictable and natural, there is always plenty. 2012-th was probably not the best for Leo in his career. But he’s still the best in the world – it is taken as a given.
Board member of Juventus will not be able to appear at the games the defending champion to the end of January.
After the final whistle of the match against Sampdoria in which Juventus lost with a score of 1:2, Pavel Nedved, one of the board members of the club, with the referee Paolo pokonfliktoval Valerie, which almost resulted in a serious brawl
For his behavior Nedved was disqualified until January 31 – the day before the ex-player Old Lady and the Czech team will not be able to appear at football matches in Italy.
Midfielder could return to Albion.
Only six months ago Real Madrid for fabulous sums acquired the 27-year Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric, but the Croatian, it seems to have no time to regret the decision to move to Spain.
Despite 20 games played for the Blancos, Modric could not be his at the Santiago Bernabeu, but after the Spanish newspaper Marca has recognized the Croat transition worst transfer in 2012 in Spain, Luke patience snapped.
“Adapting to a club-grants, as Real Madrid – an extraordinarily difficult task,” – declared Croat.
It is assumed that Modric help reach its former level ready London Chelsea. Pensioners were very interested in the services of Luke for several years, but now, in light of the upcoming departure of Frank Lampard in the summer, need to strengthen the midfield. Competitors for Croatia to Manchester City, who is always ready to fill part of another star, pre-paying a lot of money for it.
According to Il Secolo XIX, all agreements between Genoa and Dynamo Kiev on transition Andreas Granqvist in the Ukrainian club is still in force. Surrender amount agreed, and the delay is due to a desire to “Gryphon” expeditiously to replace the Swede.
Vice-champion of Ukraine went against the Italians, and agreed to wait a solution. True, the proposed and the conditions – before the match against Cagliari, which is scheduled for Sunday, the club from Genoa should decide the fate of 27-year-old defender. Otherwise, the Dynamo will curtail negotiations.
I should add that Genoa is now really busy looking for a defender, but the specifics are still very few.
The pilot said immediate plans stables Lotus.

The most spectacular was the last game of the day between teams Netherlands and Austria, where all three games the team moved to victory almost a point a point. But fortune was left on the side of the Netherlands today.
Also started with a win they qualified Ukrainian youth. However, opponents of Estonia were able to impose such a struggle that until the last ball was difficult to determine the winner, as evidenced by the score 3-2 (22-25, 25-22, 25-17, 23-25, 21 – 19) in favor of the Ukrainian team.
In other matches: Russians confident team defeated Slovenia 3-0 (25-20, 25-21, 25-13), and the young man from Norway unexpectedly defeated the hosts, the Latvian team 3-2 (25-21, 21-25, 20 – 25, 25-18, 15-10).
Ivan Paunich a few days ago expelled from Mariupol “Azovmash”, will continue his career in Spain. His new club championship was the outsider “Lagun Aro.” This was announced on his Twitter the player’s agent. Serbian defender recruited to the vice-champion of Ukraine this summer, but failed to gain a foothold in the team. His stats in the Super 14 matches was 3.4 points and 2.3 rebounds, which is clearly not happy with the management and coaching staff, “Engineering.” Details of the transaction with the Spanish team were not disclosed.
The British newspaper The Guardian published a list of the best players of the world.
10. Edinson Cavani (25, Uruguay, “Napoli”)
What are waiting for the “Manchester City” and “Chelsea”? Uruguayan striker is a world-class footballer. 94 goals in 192 matches in Serie A from the moment he arrived in Italy five years ago. His fans always respected both in Palermo and in Naples. Cavani called Matador without reason: his style of play and ability to implement scoring chances maddening rivals.
9. Yaya Toure (29, Côte d’Ivoire, “Manchester City”)
Toure is a benchmark midfielder of his generation. When Roberto Mancini assesses midfielder, you may well say, “He does not like Yaya.” His physical strength and athleticism bringing terror to the enemy. Despite its size, the Tour has a filigree technique and good speed, which makes it an excellent footballer. Midfielder changed many clubs before appeared in “Barcelona.” But Yaya fully opened to “Manchester City”, as demonstrated by the title of the best player of the year the African continent.
8. Andrea Pirlo (33, Italy, “Juventus”)
Thick beard that grew Pirlo recently, better highlights the wisdom and experience of the leader of “Old Lady.” It seems that Andrea stopped his internal clock and not prone to aging, at least, his performances led to believe in a “theory.” Midfield is still the heart of his team. His finest moment was in 2006, when the Italians won the World Cup in Germany. Pirlo coolly striking: a goal scored from the penalty spot in the style of the gate Panenka Joe Hart, confirms this.
7. Robin van Persie (29, Holland, “Manchester United”)
When, in 2004, Robin went from “Feyenoord” in London “Arsenal” was hard to imagine where his career path will lead. At the time, Van Persie could be called a bully, but the meeting with Dennis Bergkamp has changed his outlook. Since then, the striker began to turn a present. 2006-2007 season. and 2007-2008. were marred by injuries, but later, after the departure of Thierry Henry and healing of sores, Robin was the main striking force of the “Gunners”. Last summer, Sir Alex Ferguson has not regretted it for 24 million pounds.
6. Radamel Falcao (26, Columbia, “Atletico Madrid” Madrid “)
It is called the Tiger and he’s really a predator – hunter “heads” rivals trying to use any opportunity to present on the field. When he is in good shape, it can not be stopped: kick with his right foot from the left, head of the penalty area, from outside the box. This guy rarely misses a better position. Objectively best “number 9″ in the world at the moment. He scored more than 50 goals for the year, won the Europa League with Madrid “Atletico Madrid” and destroyed London “Chelsea” in the European Super Cup, scored a hat-trick in the first half. Temper minimum amount prescribed in the contract is 60 million euros. This is, frankly, not so much for such a player.
5. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (31, Sweden, Paris Saint-Germain)
Physically strong, able to score both feet and his head, his name is always at the hearing at the global football community. In 2012, the Swede moved from Serie A in Paris, and now enjoys life. He fabulous salary, but Zlatan earned it with their performances. His series of eight titles in a row with five teams was broken last season, but he would like to start a new one. Ibrahimovic looked good and with the national team at the Euro. He scored four times to the British in a friendly match. His strength and intelligence frighten defenders opponent. Incredible maestro.
4. Andrés Iniesta (28. Spain, “Barcelona”)
Sergio Ramos called the midfielder “Barcelona”, “enlightened” man with a “magic wand”. This is partially true. His technique is so thin and filigree, which sometimes can not understand how he does all his “tricks”. Besides Iniesta has excellent dribbling and jewelry pass. This summer, the photographer took a picture of where Andreas trying to take the ball just seven Italians. He is always in the game and is the creative center of the Spanish national team, for which scored the winning goal in the final match of the World Cup. In modern football, where ball control became an obsession, the number of defenders has increased, and find a free space is virtually impossible, Iniesta has not lost its main advantages – inspiration.
3. Xavi (32, Spain, “Barcelona”)
Several years ago, Xavi has admitted that his career is in jeopardy. He lacked the muscle and growth. However, since then, much has changed, as does midfielder. Now, five years later, it is the standard of an attacking midfielder, he has won various titles with the team and the club. Luis Aragones decided to build a team around Xavi game and it worked. Pep Guardiola has done the same in the “Barcelona.” Xavi has been “updated.” Over the last five years, no player in the world has not given as much accurate passes with an average more than one hundred per game. But these programs have in turn led to the success of the national team of Spain and “Leopard.” Xavi can be called the best player in Spanish football in its history. A style called Dani Alves Xavi – “style of the future.”
2. Cristiano Ronaldo (27, Portugal, the “Real” Madrid)
A little story. It was in March 2007 at “Old Trafford”. “Manchester” crushed “Bolton” with a score of 4-1, and Henrik Pedersen has received instructions to stop the Portuguese had already been replaced at the 28th minute. After the game, the journalist asked the head coach of the losing team Allerdaysu Sam, asking him whether it was true that Ronaldo struck his trauma wards. The coach said: “The injury Yes after that we need to fucking plastic surgeon”. Cristiano can upset your opponent and has since proved to be one of the strongest players of the planet. Messi is it better? Hardly. However, We can say only one thing: the forward of “Real” have something to counter the Argentines.
1. Lionel Messi (25, Argentina, “Barcelona”)
All eleven experts, is that rating, came to a unanimous decision in the selection of the first issue. They became, of course, Leo Messi. As you can not choose it? Debates have only one question: is the best player in the world Argentina, not only for now, but in general the history of football? Last season he scored 50 goals in La Liga and has become the main scorer of Spanish championship. He scored four times in a row the most goals in the Champions League and scored twice in the finals of the strongest club competition in Europe. He’s distressed rival in the King’s Cup final, on the club’s World Cup, in Spain and the European Super Cup. Hard to find a word in the superlative degree, perfectly describing Lionel.
