UNBELIEVABLE: Barcelona ace apparently considered London switch

Wednesday July 23 2014,

Tags: Lionel Messi, Cesc Fabregas, Barcelona, Arsenal, La Liga

The Barcelona ace was reportedly so disgruntled with things at Camp Nou that he apparently sounded out a move to England.

According to the Metro (as per Spanish publication Vozpopuli) things were going...

Germany vs Argentina duels with Müller vs Messi and what Löw must do to win

Thomas Müller is much more than a lanky winger; he plays many roles in each game and can confuse defences. He will try to win the final for his country whereas Lionel Messi will try to do the same for his nation.
One of the legacies of the 2014 World Cup has been to leave behind a trail of tactical tweaks by the master tacticians on the sidelines. Alejandro Sabella has done so as has Joachim Löw. After much chipping and chopping, they have finally settled down, albeit not completely, with two different game plans. And aside from slight alterations, there is no reason why the managers will alter...
