Brahim Diaz Shines as Real Madrid Thrives Without Bellingham in Dominant Victory

Published

on

Brahim Diaz embraced the opportunity to demonstrate his depth and brilliance, stepping into the shoes of Real Madrid’s big man, Jude Bellingham. The match against Braga on Wednesday night demonstrated that there is life without Los Blancos’ main player this season.

Jude Bellingham, consistently overshadowing Brahim Diaz with his stellar performances, was rested for the match, providing the Spaniard the chance he had been patiently waiting for. Diaz not only lived up to the occasion but left an indelible mark on the game, contributing significantly to Real Madrid’s commanding 3-0 triumph.

 

The visitors initially had an opportunity to take the lead when Lucas Vazquez fouled Cristian Borja in the box, resulting in a penalty. However, reserve goalkeeper Andriy Lunin made a crucial save to deny Braga the early advantage.

 

Undeterred by an earlier disallowed goal, Brahim Diaz demonstrated composure and skill to open the scoring for Real Madrid. Capitalizing on Rodrygo’s cutback, the attacking midfielder ghosted into the box, securing a well-deserved 1-0 lead.

 

In the second half, Diaz had another chance to find the net but was thwarted by an exceptional save from Matheus. However, Vinicius made no mistake, converting a smooth counter-attack to extend Real Madrid’s lead to 2-0 after 58 minutes. The third goal came shortly after, with Rodrygo gracefully chipping the ball over Matheus, sealing a comfortable victory for Los Blancos.

 

Brahim Diaz’s standout performance underscores the squad’s depth and resilience, proving that even in the absence of key players like Jude Bellingham, Real Madrid has the talent and capability to secure convincing wins on the pitch.

Super Falcons Shouldn’t Be Judged By Friendly Game Loss To Canada —Udeze

Published

on

Former Super Eagles defender Ifeanyi Udeze has said the Super Falcons should not be judged by their loss to Canada in a test game.

The Falcons continued their preparations for this summer’s Olympics in Paris with a test game with reigning women’s Olympic champions Canada.
After 90 minutes the Falcons lost 1-0 to the Canadians, who they held to a goalless draw in the group stage at the 2023 FIFA women’s World Cup.

Despite the defeat, Udeze played it down, positing the test game is not enough to judge how the Falcons would perform in Paris.
“We have a tournament ahead of us, the Olympic Games, and we shouldn’t use the friendly to judge them. Let’s give them the benefit of doubt,” Udeze said on Brila.

The Falcons are in the same group with world champions Spain, two-time Olympic silver medal winners Brazil and former World Cup winners Japan.
The nine-time African champions will open their campaign against Brazil, who they lost 3-1 to in the group stage at the Beijing Olympics.

This would be the fourth time the Falcons would feature at the Olympics, after debuting at Sydney 2000.

However, Postecoglou stated that his focus is on Spurs at the moment.
“I was having a nap on Wednesday afternoon. I have no idea.
“I’m the Tottenham manager and I’m determined to bring success to this club.
“That’s where my focus is totally.”
