FIFA World Cup Update: Group G

Limping Ronaldo renders Portugal anxious

With a possible recurrence of his tendinitis, Portugal star player Cristiano Ronaldo had to cut his training short on Thursday and had to put an ice pack unto his left knee to ease the pain in the said area. This left him limping on the pitch and consequently, scared the entire Portuguese audience for a possible threat against the player’s performance.

 

The Real Madrid talisman has been suffering from injuries (tendinitis and strained hamstring) to his left leg in the lead-up to the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and was on the sidelines for two weeks to prevent the impairment from worsening.

Podolski confident of Germany’s campaign toward victory

While he may have only landed on bronze positions in the past two World Cups he participated in, Lukas Podolski believes that now is the best time to get past the third place. He is setting his eyes for the championship and is pretty confident that his team have the right ingredients, formula, and tools to defeat every single superpower out there that they have to face with. Podolski is Germany’s third most-capped player of all time.

 

Coach Jürgen Klinsmann says a US win might be a long shot

Playing down expectations, US coach Jürgen Klinsmann has hinted that the US players may not be able to win the 2014 FIFA World Cup. The comment, which many considered to be against the American ideology, has produced reactions aplenty. Klinsmann was reported to be stating that his team were not at a level yet to win the World Cup and facing powerhouses Germany, Portugal, and Ghana has just made the situation even worse.

 

“You have to be realistic,” said the manager. “Every year we are getting stronger. We don’t look at ourselves as underdogs. We are not. We are going to take the game to Ghana and they will take it to us, and it will be an exciting game and then we go from there.”

 

Power shortage might prevent Ghanaians from watching the World Cup

In a country where power supply is not always stable, any important event that requires a TV broadcast is always threatened by a possible power outage. However, Ghana has ensured that everyone will be able to watch the matches and ordered the nation’s largest aluminum smelter to cut down its energy consumption in order to provide households enough electricity to power their TV sets. In addition, neighboring country and fellow World Cup finalists Ivory Coast has agreed to supply 50 megawatts to Ghana during the Black Stars’ fixtures.
