Abramovich Puts Decent Money for Russia

in News & Features

Russian billionaire is giving out $40 million for his country’s national football team which I doubt would go far enough to making his country a force to reckon in world competitions. Chelsea reached the top of the league through the money of Abramovich but we are talking about a huge amount. The money given to Russian football is just the price of a star player in Chelsea.

For political, social and patriot reasons, I salute Abramovich.

in Uncategorized

Tunisia In this series of posts we shall look at each country’s profile that will see action during the games. We continue with Tunisia (player profile). The full archive is found here.

Only winning one game against Mexico in the last 28 years does not speak well of this team. Being the first African country to win a finals has put them in the record books though. Below is their world cup record:

1978: (lost) Poland; (draw) Germany
1998: (lost) England, Columbia; (draw) Romania
1998: (lost) Russia, Japan; (draw) Belgium

Former French national coach Roger Lemerre has led the team to lift the trophy at the Rades stadium during the CAF African Cup of Nations in February 2004.

Their six wins, three draws and only one loss ensured them a place in World Cup Germany.

Their solid combination of players makes Tunisian fans hopeful about their chances.
