KANE LIKE KLINSMANN

Former Tottenham striker Teddy Sheringham has compared the club’s first choice hitman Harry Kane with legend Jurgen Klinsmann, who is currently in charge of the US national football team.

Kane came through the ranks at Spurs before going on to have a fantastic debut season in the Premier League. He was so instrumental with goals and overall play that Kane almost won the PFA Player of the Year award had it not been for Eden Hazard winning the league title with Chelsea. Kane is already being linked with a huge money move to Manchester United, but he has so far resisted any attempts.




Russia is going ahead and according to plan

Even with all of the concerns that have been rising in relation to the 2018 World Cup in Russia and their problems with Ukraine as well as many other things that have been going around, inspectors of FIFA have stated that Russia is actually ahead of plans and things are going well.

The head of the committee of inspectors Chris Unger said:

“As we heard today, everything is going according to plan, which is great news for everyone,” said committee head Chris Unger, whose delegation has visited stadiums in St. Petersburg, Kazan, Sochi and two arenas in Moscow. ‘’Everything is going according to plan and on the whole, the FIFA delegation has been pleasantly surprised with what they have seen. My first impression: this is an excellent venue’’

The previous edition of the World Cup was held in Brazil and it was continuously being pressured and critiqued for the speed that the Brazilian construction workers had to complete the stadiums and there even was a few deaths of workers which died due to incidents which occurred in stadiums due to the quick fashion that everything had to be completed.

However, in Russia things are different as Chris Unger said that everything is going ahead of schedule and everything should be finished smoothly without any major difficulties or troubles.

Chris Unger is one of the top officials who are overseeing all of the preparations that Russia is doing and he is optimistic about everything that is being done.

There is however, a problem with racism which is trying to be avoided by Russia when the 2018 World Cup kicks off. An recent example of this racial problem can be evidenced by CSKA Moscow having to host Manchester City in a Champions League match on an empty stadium due to racist behavior by their own fans.

Another racial incident that occurred not too long ago was the defender of Dynamo Moscow, Christopher Samba who was banned for 2 matches by the Russian Football Union after having raised his middle finger to fans after having received monkey chants.
