As India prepares for its next assignment, the Intercontinental Cup, the captain addressed a virtual press conference convened in the evening. It was an exciting and beautiful day in Calcutta, Kolkata. Now we need to make sure that we justified all the hard work we did, Chhetri noted Saturday.
Although India will play in the Intercontinental Cup and then the SAFF championship, the focus remains on the continental tournament, which will be held next January and February in Qatar.
India, ranked 101 in the latest FIFA rankings, will face a major test at the Asian Cup in Qatar. The team plays in the same club as Australia, Syria and Uzbekistan, all ranked much higher than India.
Chhetri also admits this, but hopes to draw inspiration from Morocco’s outsiders, who stunned Belgium, Spain and Portugal by reaching the semifinals of the 2022 World Cup.
At first glance, it’s a little more complicated than what it was last time. The Asian Cup is always going to be difficult. Even when we faced Thailand, the UAE and Bahrain last time, it was difficult. In some matches we played well, in some not so well, especially in the second half against Bahrain. And getting ahead of ourselves, I would say that setting some huge goals for ourselves or the team would not be ideal. We try to do our best to be as difficult an opponent as possible and show our best side.
There are a lot of teams in modern soccer that are outsiders that have shown themselves to us. One name that comes to my mind is Morocco. And if you are a good team, you can make it difficult for other teams to play against you. And that is our first and foremost goal. On paper, it looks a little bigger than it did last time, Chhetri said.
Haaland, 22, has scored 36 goals in 35 games this season, breaking Andy Cole and Alan Shearer’s previous record of 34 goals in one Premier League campaign, which stood for nearly three decades.
The Norwegian was voted best player of the season by the public, captains of 20 Premier League clubs and a panel of soccer experts.

In addition, while Camp Nou is under reconstruction, the club will use the Montjuïc stadium next season. Meanwhile, Messi’s annual salary is 25 million euros, and including other expenses, according to the report, the club could make a profit of 100 million euros.
EL Nacional recently reported that Messi also wants his compatriots Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes to join him in Catalonia. Di Maria is set to leave Juventus after the end of the season as his contract expires. Meanwhile, Paredes spent the season on loan at Juventus from PSG and does not want to return to France.
Messi’s return would be a huge boost to Barcelona’s Champions League ambitions. He is averaging more goals and assists than Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe this season. There are also rumors that Messi has agreed a deal with Saudi club Al-Hilal, which could include a potential clash between him and Cristiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo moved to Al-Nassr after the 2022 World Cup. The offer is rumored to be 350 million euros, but Al-Hilal denies such a move, as does Messi’s father and agent Jorge.
The two clubs that would join the already relegated Southampton in the second tier would be on the edge of a financial precipice: Deloitte sports business experts estimate that one season of play in the Premier League costs up to 170 million pounds ($210 million).
Everton cannot afford such a blow, the Toffeesalready looking for outside investment just to be able to complete the construction of the club’s new stadium.
They are the only side in full control of their own destiny, as a win at home against Bournemouth would extend their stay in the top division to 70 years.
However, Sean Dyche’s charges have won just once in 10 matches and will be without talismanic striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who will give Leicester and Leeds hope.
We want the players to focus on the game, Deitch said Friday. It’s not as easy as it sounds, but the idea is to focus on what’s happening on the field and not pay attention to all the noise.
Don’t worry about all the rumors, don’t worry about everything that happens off the field.
If fourth Everton doesn’t win, third Leicester can survive by beating West Ham at home thanks to a better goal difference.
Seven years ago, the Foxes celebrated the most unlikely of title triumphs.
It ushered in a glorious era when they finished in fifth place in the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons and won the FA Cup for the first time just two years ago under Brendan Rodgers.
Maney thought the squad, which included such talents as James Maddison, Yuri Thielemans and Harvey Barnes, was too good to fail.
But the tale turned into a nightmare this season as Rodgers lamented the lack of investment to renew the roster before he was fired in April.
Dean Smith failed to achieve a reversal of fortune with just one win in seven games as head coach.
We have to win the game and not look at Everton’s result until after the match, Smith said. We have to do our job and see where it takes us.
Leeds, in second place, needs a miracle to avoid the end of their three-season stay in the big leagues.
A win over Tottenham at Elland Road will only be enough for Leeds boss Sam Allardyce if Everton lose and Leicester don’t win.
If Everton play at least a draw, Leeds will need to beat Tottenham by three goals to survive.beat them on goal difference.
I just hope we’re talking positive on Monday morning and I’ll have a hangover! Allardyce said about the possibility of him stayingat the club until the end of the season.
Tottenham’s result could affect the only issue yet to be decided – qualification for the Europa League next season.
Aston Villa is in pole position and if they beat Brighton will secure a return to Europe for the first time in 13 years.
Tottenham could move up to seventh place if they outperform Villa.
But if neither side wins, Brentford can qualify for Europe for the first time in their history with a shock victory over champions Manchester City in west London.
Arsenal, Manchester United and Newcastle have already guaranteed themselves a Champions League appearance next season with City.
Liverpool and Brighton will participate in the Europa League.
The new kit uses the spirit and attitude of the 2003/04 Invincibles team, marking the beginning of the 20th anniversary of Arsenal’s undefeated Premier League season. The Arsenal crest, adidas logo and three stripes on each sleeve are in gold, and the team’s record of 26 wins and 12 draws in 38 games that historic season is engraved on the side of the authentic version of the jersey.
Arsenal legend, Ray Parlour, said: Having played that season twenty years ago surrounded by so many great players, I will never forget it, and it’s great to be celebrating our club’s history with this new home shirt, which I think all fans will love.
The field version of the jersey is sewn with HEAT.RDY technology, optimized to keep players comfortable while performing on the biggest stage thanks to breathable fabric technology that absorbs moisture and dries quickly. The support version of the jersey uses AEROREADY technology, which uses sweat-absorbing or moisture-absorbing materials to keep the body dry.
At least 70 percent of this product is a blend of recycled and renewable materials, a continuation of adidas’ ongoing commitment to end plastic waste. Earlier this year, adidas announced that it is ahead of schedule in its quest to replace virgin polyester with recycled polyester in its products wherever possible by the end of 2024. In 2022, 96 percent of all polyester used by adidas was recycled.
The new kit will first be worn on the field when Arsenal women meet Aston Villa in the final game of the seasonWSL on Saturday, May 27. The men’s team will also wear new uniforms in the last Premier League match against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday, May 28.
Manchester United’s 4-1 victory over Chelsea on Thursday ended Liverpool’s hopes of qualifying for Europe’s top club competition next season. Jurgen Klopp’s team is in fifth place, four points behind the top four in one game.
Last season, Liverpool were just one point behind Premier League champions Manchester City, but have been unable to challenge for the current campaign due to injuries and poor form.
I am completely devastated, Salah said on Twitter. There is absolutely no excuse for that. We had everything we needed to qualify for the Champions League next year, but we failed.
We are Liverpool and getting into the Champions League is the minimum. Sorry, but it’s too early for an optimistic or optimistic post. We have let you and ourselves down.
Liverpool will play Southampton on Sunday in their last match of the season.
