“Feeling the buzz and the energy from the fans lining the streets, it brought the country out and it really brought the country together so hopefully that’s going to be a big part of the picture when we get to that stage again.”

Ferdinand was an 18-year-old on the edge of breaking through with West Ham United at the time. He was privileged to see Euro 96 from inside the England camp. He called up as a training player to help prepare Terry Venables’ squad for two of their group games.

“I went in to train with the squad for two games, the Scotland and Holland games, so I was actually there on the coach on the way to the games at Wembley,” he recalls.

Next year’s Euro Cup 2020 contest is just 1 year away. The likes of Gazza, Paul Ince, Alan Shearer, Tony Adams and people like that. You’re training alongside them and thinking sensation. They are giants of the game and to be working with them as a young kid was a dream come true for me really.

“So to be around the players and then seeing the scenes around the games, it was just a great boost for me to be involved, it gave me something to aim at and I wanted to replicate what these guys were doing.”

English Ambassador of Euro Cup 2020 Rio Gavin Ferdinand also played for Manchester United.

This saw him become one of the country’s most decorated players. He plays for West Ham, Leeds United, Manchester United and Queens Park Rangers.

He is going to be involved again next year in his role as an ambassador. Wembley prepares to host seven games at Euro Cup 2020, including four group games, a round of 16 ties, both semi-finals and the showpiece final.

“It’s a great honor for me to be chosen as an ambassador for the tournament in England,” he added.

Wembley’s a great, iconic place and a lot of memories have been created there. Over the years so hopefully we can be a part of many more being made.

“London’s an iconic city too and the history in football that goes alongside England is there for all to see, so not just the football community, but I’m sure England as a whole will welcome the tournament with open arms.”

Should Gareth Southgate’s side qualify for the Euro Cup 2020 tournament? If so then their group games will take place at Wembley too. It will bring back memories of their ’96 victories over Scotland, Netherlands, and Spain.

“I’m very confident that we’ll be qualified and I just hope we can go into the tournament and put on a good show and give the fans something to sing about again,” he added.

The team would’ve wanted to get to the Nations League final. They were beaten by a good team in Holland so it just wasn’t to be this year.

Euro 2020 qualifying: Croatia defeats Wales by 2-1

This was Giggs’ 12th match in control of his country and certainly his hardest to date. Croatia’s unbeaten run at home in Euro qualifiers now stands at 32. This was a sequence that started with their first win in 1994. The community who love their favorite team can book Croatia Euro Cup Tickets.

They had not lost a home game of any kind since 2013, a trip of 23 games. Croatia defeats wales by 2-1 in their Euro Cup 2020 qualifiers campaign match. Since reaching last year’s World Cup final, Zlatko Dalic’s side had endured an embarrassing Nations League drive.

They disgraced 6-0 by Spain and packed down by England. They lose unexpectedly to Hungary in their 2nd Euro Cup 2020 qualifier.

Croatia-Euro-Cup-2020

Following those failures, Croatia was under pressure to win against Wales. They were quick to seize control as the temperature soared towards 30C. Their skipper and Ballon d’Or victor Luka Modric was classically composed. Mateo Kovacic and Marcelo Brozovic formed a tough midfield troika.

As much as the hosts commanded possession, there were openings for Wales. 2 valuable first-half chances were wasted by Harry Wilson and Will Vaulks. The danger Wales took by aggressive was to leave their protection exposed. Perisic frequently finding himself in space on Croatia’s left.

He had a handful of efforts on goal before forcing Croatia’s opener and, even after that, Wales did not heed the warning. Moments after a narrow escape when the hosts had a goal disallowed for offside, Wales’ abject failure to clear their lines presented Perisic with a chance at the back post he gleefully accepted by rifling the ball past Wayne Hennessey.

Wales were in danger of a severe beating at this point but they were lifted by Brooks’ introduction, with the Bournemouth youngster turning neatly to create the space for his shot which found the net thanks to a deflection from Domagoj Vida. The Croatia center-back was one of five home players to be booked.

This was evidence of how Dalic’s side was troubled by their opponents even as they monopolized possession for long periods. This was more than a scare for the World Cup runners-up but, while Wales may take heart from their late rally, they may reflect on this game as an opportunity wasted because of their slipshod defending.

Taylor said, “It’s a little difficult to travel to and get there. They almost do it intentionally and it’s a bit of discomfort for teams and it works fairly well.” He added, “These are the real appropriate European games, away in these countries, where a lot of these young guys will learn what it’s all about.”

UEFA confirmed Croatia’s choice as Osijek to host the games. Wales agonized defeats there in a friendly in 2020 and a World Cup qualifier in 2012.

Full-back Taylor has tender memories of Stadion Gradski, having made his senior Wales debut there in May 2010 come across in which he came up against playmaker Luka Modric.

Taylor reported for Wales’s duty after playing in Aston Villa’s Championship play-off final win over Derby County at Wembley, which protected advancement to the Premier League.

Health alert for Croatian player Ivan Rakitic according to FIFPro Report

Croatia national team representative and Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic have been named as a player who has participated in an excessive number of matches. This could affect his health. International Federation of Professional Footballers warned him. The community who love their favorite team can book Croatia Euro Cup Tickets.

Namely, FIFPro is a worldwide union of football players based in the Netherlands. FIFPro has published a report named ‘At the Limit’. This report warns that clubs are shattering their players. Some players have played almost 80 games in a season. Racking up over 100,000 kilometers traveling with their clubs and national teams. The union surveyed 500 elite football players.

Croatia-Euro-Cup-2020
FIFPro warned Ivan Rakitic for playing without proper rest – Euro 2020 qualifiers

The union cited the 31-year-old Barcelona and Croatia midfielder as a key example of someone who is ‘at the limit’. Since his arrival in Barcelona in 2014, Rakitic has been a standard member of the star-studded squad. Rakitic has also been a star for the Croatia national team. Last season, Rakitic played 68 games.

Of these, 14 were with the national team with which he traveled 30,000 kilometers. FIFPro warns that Rakitic has played 72 percent of his matches without respecting the 5-day break between them. A five-day break between games is a necessary period to avoid health problems in the short and long term.

Rakitic, along with midfielder Sergio Busquets, was last year’s player with the most appearances for Spanish champion Barcelona. Rakitic also played in the World Cup where he made it to the final with Croatia. Asked about his number of games in November after a match between Raye Vallecano and Barcelona in Madrid, he laughed and said:

“You have to have strength.”

Croatia-Euro-Cup-2020
Rakitic played 68 games last season including Euro Cup 2020 qualifiers

Increasingly competitive leagues and international tournaments are causing players to have shorter periods of rest every day, FIFPro warns. In some cases, footballers have less than two weeks of summer vacation. The physical and psychological exhaustion of players is becoming more noticeable, they added.

List of players with the highest number of matches played includes South Korean player Heung-Min Son who played for Totten ham, and Denmark player Lasse Shone played from Ajax. This list also includes Brazil player Alisson Becker who played for Liverpool and Senegal player Sadie Mane who played for Liverpool.

FIFPro recommends that at the end of the season, players should have a 4-week holiday and two weeks off during the winter. It is necessary to limit the number of times a footballer plays consecutively for a period of fewer than five days. Five days is the golden period between two matches played to avoid injuries and health problems.

Croatia-Euro-Cup-2020
Ivan Rakitic’s experience should be helpful for Croatia in Euro Cup 2020 qualifiers

Furthermore, it is necessary to consider introducing the maximum number of matches a footballer can play in a season in order to preserve his health and performance. In addition, an early alert system should be introduced to monitor the players’ workloads and help them plan their performances.

To meet the demands of the match calendar, players are often asked to push their limits, without enough rest and refreshment, said Theo van Seggelen, Secretary-General of FIFPro. This means that they cannot provide maximum impact. Players face periods of great mental and physical tension.

Scientific research has confirmed that the health of top-level footballers is in danger due to the current tight calendar and number of competitions. Van Seggelen called on all participants of football competitions to jointly establish a way that would reduce pressure on players and preserve their health, career, and play as such.

Oliver Norwood – Sheffield United player completes career in Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill thinks Oliver Norwood has made a serious mistake in deciding to withdraw from international football.

The 28-year-old midfielder made the announcement on Monday, saying he wanted to focus on his club career with Sheffield United. Sports fanatics from all over the world can buy Northern Ireland Euro Cup Tickets online to enjoy its stunning performances.

“I have no doubt Ollie could have kept playing club and international football for many years,” said O’Neill.

“He had the opportunity to leave an incredible legacy and reach 100 caps.”

Norwood, born in Burnley but qualified to play for Northern Ireland through his grandfather, won 57 caps. Her club Sheffield United are back in the Premier League after 12 years of absence and won their first game of the season against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

“Ollie has been a mainstay of our team for the past seven years. I know this was not an easy decision for Ollie to make. However, I think his decision is premature,” added O’Neill.”

Norwood made his international debut under former Northern Ireland boss Nigel Worthington in his 2-0 friendly loss to Montenegro in Podgorica in August 2010.

Former Manchester United man Brighton and Fulham was a regular at O’Neill midfielder when the team qualified for Euro 2016 and played all four of the team’s matches in the final.

He himself was excluded from the first four qualifying matches for Euro 2020 against Estonia and Belarus. O’Neill’s team got the most points.

“After proudly representing Northern Ireland on 57 occasions, I feel now is the right time to announce my retirement from international football,” Norwood said in a statement issued by Sheffield United.

I enjoyed the highs of a major tournament and being part of the Euro 2016 group in France was the proudest point of my international career.

I’d like to thank manager Michael O’Neill for choosing me many times to represent my country and the players I’ve played with over the years. We had a great time.

“A huge thank you, too, to the GAWA (Green and White Army) for the tremendous support offered through the years. In my opinion, the GAWA really are the best fans in the world and hopefully, the squad can deliver more success for them to enjoy.”

Norwood, who also played for the Under-21 and Under-19 teams in Northern Ireland, failed to score in his 57 appearances with the senior international team.

Sheffield United’s promotion to the Premier League last season was a third consecutive promotion for Norwood, who was part of the Brighton team who climbed in 2017 before helping Fulham win the roadblock final in 2018.

The 28-year-old never appeared on the top team, but, speaking last month, O’Neill had supported him to move up a gear this season with the Blades.

Northern Ireland leads group C in Euro 2020 qualifying with Germany, who played one game less, in second place and the Netherlands, who have played only twice, in third place.

O’Neill’s men have a friendly home game on September 5 in Luxembourg, before welcoming Germany to Belfast on September 9 and traveling to the Netherlands on October 10.

It was decided that Croatia would play its last EURO 2020 qualifier against Slovakia on 16 November at 20.45 in Rijeka. Croatia played for the last time in Rijeka in the UEFA Champions League when they drew 0-0 against England last October.

Additional qualifications are obtained for the 16 winners of the League of Nations groups. If a national team already advances in the regular qualifiers, its place will go to the best team of its group of the League of Nations. Croatia will, therefore, be part of the additional qualifications if England and Spain switch to the euro thanks to regular qualifications.

However, Croatia is the favorite of their qualifying group for the euro and it would be a big surprise if it does not easily guarantee first or second place qualifications.
