Argentina wins FIFA World Cup – Qatar2022


Argentina wins FIFA World Cup – Qatar2022

?1978, 1986 and now in 2022! Argentina have clinched their third FIFA World Cup title in an emphatic finale, which was truly worthy of being the decider.

?As a tweet beautifully captured it, “Last time Argentina won the world cup, Messi was 1. Today, he was the one!”

⚽️Messi took control of the game early on and kept growing as the game progressed, helping his side go 2-0 up and later, 3-2 up. Mbappe matched Messi with his brilliance as he scored a hattrick, become only the 5th player to do so in a FIFA World Cup final, though it wasn’t enough on the day. Messi lost the Golden Boot but claimed the Golden

? Emi Martinez was up for the challenge too, as he not only made some remarkable saves in regulation time but was splendid in the shoot-out as well, yet again, claiming the Golden Glove.

?Mbappe showcased he is ready to lead the next era of football and has achieved a lot already at just 23 and ended the World Cup with something to cheer for- Golden Boot

?Enzo Fernandes was another key member of the Argentine midfield and packed a punch, which saw him emerge as the Young Player of the tournament.

Over to Christmas celebrations, followed by some Boxing Day football!

Croatia’s bronze medal shines as bright as gold

?Croatia would be jubilant after a well-deserved second consecutive podium finish as they emerged third at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 , having finished runner’s up in the 2018 edition.

?A country with less than 4 million people achieving this in six appearances with their first coming only in 1998 is remarkable

??Between 1998 to 2022, Croatia has the 3rd highest podium finishes (1998 ? 2018 ? 2022 ?), only behind France and Germany. They have fared better than football powerhouses such as Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Italy, England, etc. who failed to qualify for the semi-finals even in the 2022 edition.

?At 37, magician Luka Modric continues to be the engine of the Croatia team. While he might have played his last World Cup game, he could very well be a part of the side for the Euros in 2024, having shown he has still got it in him #brazil

⭐️Gvardiol was awarded the Player of the Match award in the 3rd place play-off, and has been one of the most impressive players in the World Cup, which has also seen top clubs chasing his signature.

? With this, a small nation like Croatia has jumped to 7th on the latest FIFA rankings among the 211 members. Incredible!

While Croatia might have won a bronze medal, it shines as bright as gold!

NFL – The world’s most profitable sports league

?The NFL is the world’s most profitable sports league, bringing in an expected $20 billion in revenue this year alone.

?But tackle football participation is on a decline of over 40% over the past few years.

?The physical style of play is attractive but has its consequences. Over 300 NFL players have been diagnosed with Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CET) and the league have had to pay nearly $1 billion in concussion settlements.

? So how is the NFL tackling this? ?? The answer is flag football. Flag football is a variant of American football where, instead of tackling players to the ground, the defensive team must remove a flag or flag belt from the ball carrier to end a down ??The NFL is now investing millions in flag football each year. – It is less physical and safer – It is easier to play – It is cheaper – It has more chances of going global

? NFL is slowly pushing for an Olympic charter with flag football as they intend to reach 50mn international fans.

What do you make of this move?

FSG has put Liverpool Football Club up for sale

⚽️Fenway Sports Group (FSG) has put Liverpool Football Club up for sale. FSG has looked at opportunities in the past as well but decided against moving forward with them.

?Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley will assist with the process.

?FSG paid £300 million ($476 million) to buy Liverpool from George Gillett and Tom Hicks in 2010.

?In 2021, an 11% stake was sold by FSG to RedBird Capital Partners for $750m. The Group was expected to buy Liverpool but their recent acquisition of AC Milan seems to have put the deal off. The equity firm also invested in IPL team Rajasthan Royals.

?Liverpool has always been a strong brand and with success on the field in the last decade, the brand value has only grown. LFC had the most significant growth in brand value among The Premier League’s “big six” teams in 2022.

?The team’s brand value grew 19% from $1.143 billion in 2021 to $1.365 billion in 2022. That growth put it ahead of second-placed Manchester City Football Club (8.45%) and third-placed Arsenal F.C (7.45%).

?The ‘Financial Forecast 2022’ predicts that Liverpool will finally overtake Manchester United in terms of revenue, forecasting record turnover of £602m for the club and a predicted pre-tax profit of £76m.

?Analysts speculate that Liverpool could be valued at as much as $7bn, however, sources suggest anything in the region of $5bn would prompt the sale.

?Recently, Chelsea Football Club was sold for £2.5bn ($4.25bn) in the summer

?“They are one of the big legacy clubs in the most popular and commercially successful league in the world, an opportunity like this doesn’t come up very often”

?“In terms of Premier League clubs if you are looking at the size of the fanbase then Liverpool would be up there with Man United as the two biggest in the business. They are a long way ahead of everyone else. Purely from the point of view of the attention economy and global fanbase to tap into to monetise, Liverpool is one of the biggest brands in football.”

?Some names being thrown in the mix are that of Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Dubai Investment Group. More names are expected to emerge and there seems to be keen interest in the team.
