John Terry la naţională. Din nou.

0

Doar două goluri primite în 10 meciuri – defensiva condusă de John Terry e beton armat. Şi cu ocazia asta s-a reactivat tabăra celor care îl vor pe Terry titular în naţionala Angliei, pentru Rio 2014. Jagielka – Cahill şi-au făcut treaba cu brio în calificări (4 goluri primite în 10 meciuri) dar deja formatul parteneriat al lui Terry cu Cahill a înfierbântat minţile multora.

Totuşi, îmi aduc aminte de cronica meciului City v Chelsea, făcută de Jonathan Wilson, şi de acest pasaj:

“Sides such as Bayern Munich and Barcelona deny opponents access to that key (what Ottmar Hitzfeld terms “the red zone”, the central area just outside the D from which most shots or decisive passes come) sector by pressing high up the pitch, squeezing them back in their own half and then denying them possession. Chelsea do it with guards, stationing Terry and Gary Cahill within the zone – one of the reasons Terry suddenly looks so good again is that he is defending deep, playing with with the game in front of him so his lack of pace and consequent vulnerability to balls played behind him is no longer an issue. At City, Nemanja Matic and David Luiz were just in front.

Fie Mourinho primeşte un part-time la naţionala Angliei, fie Hodgson se apleacă în studiu profund peste tezele portughezului.
