FutureStarrElite Men's Highlights From the 2016 Montreal ITU World Cup
The 2016 Montreal ITU World Cup was a historic triathlon event. For the first time, an elite male athlete won the championship. Kristian Blummenfelt cruised through the course and never let go of the lead, taking the first men's title of his career. The podium finish also marked the return to the podium for John McElroy, who has not been in the World Triathlon Series podium since 2009.
Blummenfelt's achievements in the past two years have been quite impressive. In 2015, he won the Norwegian national sprint title. In 2016, he won the ETU Madrid (Olympic) and the ITU Cagliari World Cup (Sprint). Blummenfelt also made his Olympic debut in Rio, finishing 13th. He also broke the world record for the Ironman 70.3 distance and was the only person to complete the distance in less than seven hours.
Blummenfelt was in the lead group of seven riders coming out of the water. He made a surge in the final lap and dropped two other riders. Eventually, he was left with three riders, including Van Riel and Leo Bergere. Blummenfelt's decisive push gave him the lead in the sprint, and he held off the charge from his chase group.
Blummenfelt is the first Norweigan to win a men's elite title. His victory over Australian Matthew Wright, Luke Bell, and Romain Guillaume made Blummenfelt the first man to win the title in the elite men's category.
Blummenfelt will now compete for the ITU World Triathlon Series title in Cape Town, South Africa on April 24. His victory has also extended his lead in the 2016 Columbia Threadneedle Rankings. Despite this success, many athletes struggled in the hot conditions and remained out of the podium.
Blummenfelt also won the St George Ironman. The Canadian is already eyeing the Olympic distance, but he wants to push the boundaries of triathlon excellence. The Sub7Sub8 project was a major step for Blummenfelt, and he plans to dip 8 in the full distance event. He also recently announced a partnership with the Pho3nix Foundation, which promotes physical activity.
Since 2008, the ITU has been hosting multiple triathlon events around the world and crowning a world champion. The series features multiple rounds of competition, culminating in a grand final race. Athletes compete for points for their overall performance in two distances, Olympic distance and sprint distance.
Blummenfelt's impressive Olympic record also demonstrates his ability to perform well under pressure. His best performances have come at the Rio Olympics and the 2016 Olympic Games. He finished second at the 2016 Grand Final and the 2016 World Championship rankings.
One of the career highlights for Blummenfelt was his gold medal in the 1.5km swim. In addition, he rode a CADEX WheelSystem, using a 65-inch rear wheel and 42-inch front wheel, and he rode tubeless tires.
Blummenfelt then went on to win the Championship Series Grand Final in Edmonton. He entered the race with the second-best overall score from the series, and won it to claim the gold. After that, he competed in the Tokyo Olympics, taking a silver medal. The next year, he won his first ITU World Cup Elite Men's title.
After finishing fifth at the World Championships in 2015, Blummenfelt was a medalist in the 2016 Olympic Games, taking home his first medal for Norway. After a slow start, Blummenfelt pushed his pace on the bike and on the run and topped the podium in 1:44:14. Van Riel and Leo Bergere rounded out the podium.
Blummenfelt also won his first CAMTRI race in 2015. He also made his debut on the World Triathlon Series circuit in Auckland in 2015, and then continued to thrive in one-off championships, including a double gold in Glasgow in 2018.
Blummenfelt's impressive performance in Montreal was his third podium finish in the World Cup Elite Men's event. In addition to his gold medal, Blummenfelt also won the silver medal in the CAMTRI Elite Men's race. Earlier in the season, he won a silver medal at the Bermuda World Triathlon Series race in June.
In addition to Blummenfelt, other elite men's events include the Elite Mixed Relay. Two men and two women race together in a four-person relay. The first leg is 1500 metres and the second is 40 km. In the third leg, the athletes are required to run 2.5 km and then sprint to the finish line.
Despite his success in Montreal, the Canadian is not done yet. He'll be racing in the world championships in Kona and St. George in the future. He'll be in the mix this year in the Super Sprint and will look to add more medals at the world championships in 2017.
It's no secret that Jelle Geens is among the world's best triathletes. The Belgian won gold in Montreal, his second World Triathlon Series title, and a bronze in Indian Wells last December. Here, Geens shares the best moments from her 2016 season.
Jelle Geens was born on 26 March 1993. He's now 29 years old and has already won silver at the ETU European Championships in Pontevedra, north-west Spain, and the European Cup in Dusseldorf, Germany. He also beat fellow Belgian Justis Nieschlag in the European Cup race in Echternach, Luxembourg, to take the title.
He was joined by several other top-class cyclists in the final stages of the World Cup. The race featured nine stages, with the first five stages covered by the top-five finishers. The first four stages included the classics, with a distance of 190 kilometers.
Mislawchuk took his first career World Cup in Mooloolaba, Australia in March and his second one this season in Mexico. His recent podium appearances include the Ironman 70.3 world championship, the Huatulco World Cup, and the Americas Triathlon Cup in Long Beach. The next World Triathlon Series event will be held in Hamburg, Germany from July 6 to 7.
McElroy's silver medal in Leeds, England, marked his first podium in the WTS since 2009. It was also his highest finish in his career. Before the Leeds race, the WTS was known as the ITU World Championship Series. Before McElroy, the top American male in WTS had been Jarrod Shoemaker, who won the gold medal in Hamburg in 2009.
McElroy grew up in Huntington Beach, California, where he was a lifeguard and competed in surfing. While in high school, he was also a competitive runner, finishing second at the Footlocker Cross Country Nationals in 2009. He continued on to run track and cross country at Oklahoma State University, where he was a three-time All-American. McElroy was then recruited by the USA Triathlon Collegiate Recruitment Program.
Other notable athletes in the World Triathlon Series this year include Claire Michel, who posted a series of top ten finishes during the Series. Miriam Casillas Garcia, who placed second in Weihai, is another athlete to watch out for. Zsanett Bragmayer, meanwhile, won the European Triathlon Premium Cup in Tiszaujvaros three months ago.
The World Triathlon Series is the top international triathlon series. The races include men's, women's, and mixed teams. The men's race features a 1500-meter swim, 40-kilometer cycle, and a 10 km run. For the women's race, a mixed team of four athletes completes a relay involving 300 metres of swimming, 7.5-km cycling, and 1.5 km of running. This format was previously only offered as a mixed team race due to COVID 19.
The women's race will be the final race in the World Triathlon Series, with the winner taking home the silver medal. The women's race will be held on Thursday morning local time. McElroy has been training hard for the Tokyo Olympics. She has won the World Cup three times, including the Tokyo triathlon. She is coached by Nate Wilson.
McElroy has been a part of the USA Triathlon team for over a decade and has been a contender since her debut race. She finished fourth in Bermuda last year and has a strong chance of being the next World Triathlon Series winner. She is also the youngest woman to have represented Team USA at an Olympic Games and won silver with Team USA's Mixed Relay squad in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
The India vs South Africa Match Review will cover a range of topics, including India opener Suryakumar Yadav's inability to score in back-to-back innings. We will also look at Ashwin's batting performance and the three wickets claimed by Kagiso Rabada. Lastly, we will take a look at the performance of Deepak Hooda.
In his first T20I against South Africa, Indian opener Suryakumar Yadah failed to score in back-to-back innings but bounced back with a fine innings of 68 off 40 balls. He made his ninth half-century of the year and helped India to 133/9 in 20 overs. But India lost wickets quickly and lost half of their side. India were left at 49/5 and it was Suryakumar who combined with Dinesh Karthik to add 52 runs for the sixth wicket.
India's innings ended in a 133-run victory and Suryakumar was given the opportunity to make his name in T20I history. He became the third T20I player to reach 900 runs in a calendar year, joining Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan.
India were in a desperate state after the dismissal of opener Suryakumar Yadav. The opener was dropped by Virat Kohli at deep midwicket when he was on 35. Had the skipper not missed the stumps, he would have been run out.
Suryakumar was bowled by Kagiso Rabada in the fifteenth over. He hit two sixes and a four in that over. The next over, Kohli scored two more runs and India were 49 for 5. However, Suryakumar was dismissed in the 19th over. A second innings collapse followed, and India were left chasing a huge total in the tournament.
India's batting collapse continues to eat away at its confidence. They managed to score a paltry 133 against a powerful South African team, but that was never enough. A century, a hundred and thirty-one runs from the opener is not enough to get over the line. The Proteas still need to make 134 runs to win.
India's top order collapse has been the result of a lack of consistency. The Indians had to work hard after losing four wickets in the first ten overs. They managed to recover from their early collapse and make a respectable 133-9 after 20 overs. During the chasing stage, India managed to make a run out of each over.
The pressure was too much for India to handle. As a result, India's fourth-wicket stand of 76 off 60 balls fell short. However, South Africa went on to chase down India's target by scoring 34 runs off 27 balls.
Ashwin's performance in India v South Africa match review was a standout one, with three wickets to his name. The pitch played well for pace bowlers throughout the match, assisting Ashwin to make his mark. Ashwin's final over ended in a run-out, as Stubbs was trapped lbw. The South Africans were then required to score 25 runs in the final over.
Ashwin's overseas performances have not been consistent. In the Johannesburg Test of 2013, Ashwin bowled 42 overs for just four runs. Similarly, he averaged just under 50 with the ball against Australia in 2014/15. In Southampton in 2018, Moeen Ali was the best bowler in the first innings, and Ashwin picked up only one wicket.
India are in a good position to win the series. With a strong batting line-up, they have little trouble with South Africa. But they will need some extra zip to ruffle them. Fortunately for India, Virat Kohli is the one who can move mountains when he's in the mood.
Ashwin's first over was a disaster, and the visitors were pinned to a 133-run total in their twenty-first over. In his second over, Ashwin failed to remove the South African batsmen from the middle. Ashwin's shaky arm and unreliable footwork were the main culprits. The bowler's ineffectiveness was one of the key reasons for India's failure to score a century.
Ashwin was disappointing in India vs South Africa match review. The wickets fell at the other end of the order, but the tail added 90 runs. South Africa's attack should have been more consistent. The South Africans should have been able to field better - particularly considering that they were missing two fast bowlers.
In his third over, Ashwin trapped Dean Elgar for an LBW. The on-field umpire, Marias Erasmus, raised his finger for the dismissal. Elgar took a late review, which cost India. Ashwin's wickets were crucial and his performance was crucial for India's chances in this match.
Ravichandran Ashwin has made a good comeback for India in the T20I series. His economy rate in T20Is was under seven. His versatility as a left-hander and right-hander makes him a valuable addition to the Indian team.
Kagiso Rabada's 3/55 in the third Test against India will be remembered fondly by cricket fans. Having been out of action for a year, the 25-year-old was one of the most experienced fast bowlers on the team and spearheaded a revamped bowling attack. Having lost their last three Test series, including a 2-0 defeat to Sri Lanka, South Africa were in need of a win to maintain their hopes of a direct qualification to the ODI World Cup 2023.
Kagiso Rabada and his teammates were instrumental in getting South Africa's first Test win since 1999. The South African pace unit was the most successful in the match. They took a combined 15 wickets, including two by Rabada. They were able to restrict England to just 165 runs in their two innings.
After claiming two wickets on day one, Kagiso Rabada returned on day two to take three more wickets. He now has five wickets in two Test matches against England. On day one, he made inroads against England's top order. He removed Alex Lees in his third over and Zak Crawley in his ninth over. With this, he brought down the England top order.
Rohit Sharma and Kagiso Rabada are both on the rise. Rohit Sharma's innings averaged 35 and his strike rate is 129.6. On the other hand, David Miller, the leading run-scorer in T20I cricket, has scored over 1000 runs in T20s in the past year. The South Africans have a very good bowling attack, and Kagiso Rabada's three wickets against India have boosted their chances in the series.
The three wickets that Kagiso Rabada took against India in the second Test are crucial in terms of India's chances of a winning score. After the shaky start to the match, India reacted well to the bowling attack. Kohli and Pujara scored a fifty-wicket stand in the first innings and reached the target in the second. However, Rabada had his hands full with the ball and was unable to hit Kohli's inswinger.
South Africa's fast bowlers were effective across the board. But the difference between the two pace attacks was apparent. South African seamers were taller and used bounce better than their Indian counterparts. In addition, South African bowlers used shorter lengths than their Indian counterparts.
If you are following the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, then you must have read about Deepak Hooda's performance during India's T20I match against South Africa. Hooda has already made one T20I appearance for India and came in as a batter against South Africa. However, India did not select him against Quinton de Kock.
India's batting order was under fire during the innings, but Deepak Hooda was able to blaze two fours in his maiden international innings, giving India an unbeaten 225 in 20 overs. The innings was a brilliant effort and India took the lead in the two-match series.
Axar Patel's absence in the top seven was an unexpected blow for India. The left-hander's presence could have made a difference, particularly if he were able to divide the fifth-wicket quote. On the other hand, a wicketkeeper like Hooda could have provided more depth for India's batting order, and he could have bowled in the middle of the innings as well.
India's captain Rohit Sharma made one change to his XI. He replaced Axar Patel with Deepak Hooda after the defeat to the Netherlands. However, his innings cost India a valuable wicket. Despite being in poor form, Rahul's bowling performance is encouraging.
India had no real chance to take the lead in the middle order, as their openers failed to score a single boundary. The South Africans reached forty after 10 overs. And they did not lose a wicket. They were unable to get the breakthrough that would have given them the win. As a result, they were left at 41 for 3.
Arshdeep Singh and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were India's best bowlers during the T20 World Cup. Arshdeep took two wickets in his first over. They were supported by Bhuvneshwar Kumar who took three wickets in 10.4 overs. Similarly, the pace attack struggled to score runs in the second innings.
Thankfully, India are not in a do-or-die situation in this ongoing global tournament, but a poor performance could affect their confidence and momentum. Ultimately, the Men in Blue will have a chance to win the series.
The 2016 Salinas ITU World Cup will feature 70 men and 49 women competing in the 750m swim, 20km cycle, and 5km run distances. The event is set to conclude in Miyazaki, Japan, on November 4, and is a key stage in the season.
Matt Chrabot, a former George Mason University swimmer, finished his season as the No. 1 male in the United States. He now has his sights set on representing the USA in triathlon at the London 2012 Olympics. Chrabot started his professional career in 2006 and has quickly established himself as a world-class triathlete. He has posted impressive results in his last three race seasons and is on track to qualify for the Olympics.
It's not always easy to get on the Olympic team. When a country is on the bubble, the race for points can be frantic. In 2008, the U.S. males had several athletes in the top 10 in the world. The same thing happened in 2000, when Matt Reed and Hunter Kemper were in the same position.
Chrabot's high ranking in the ITU Olympic Qualification List has fueled a renewed interest in the sport in the United States. He has been training hard and focusing on his training as a way to make his dream come true. With the help of his coach, Matt has been able to develop his training regimen and is on his way to making it to the Olympics.
The selection process for the U.S. men is a complex one. Only two men will earn automatic slots on the start line in London, while the third spot is a roll down selection. This means that the top two males in the U.S. Olympic Qualify list will qualify. In the meantime, several other athletes may roll onto the start list.
Despite the tough conditions, Chrabot and Reed fought to the finish line. The two finished a close race with a large group chasing them. The two had a long season to prepare for the race. The two were joined by many of the world's best triathletes. The winner took the American flag at the finish line.
The U.S. has consistently done well in the quadrennial Pan American Games. In fact, the country has won twice as many medals as any other nation. In 2011, the U.S. finished third and won one gold medal. The games first began in 1951, and tennis has been a part of the games ever since.
In the 2003 Ford World Cup, the event was changed to a duathlon because of contamination in the Hudson River. Hunter Kemper and Jarrod Shoemaker were among the early leaders on the bike, but the race was decided on the run. In 2008, Kemper, the U.S. male triathlete, was seventh. He qualified for the Olympics by finishing third in the Monster Challenge: Tri Boston world championship qualifier.
As a 40-year-old triathlon veteran looking for his first Olympic berth at Salina's ITU World Cup - Elite Mens Highlights, Hunter Kemper is battling to make the cut. At the time, Kemper was suffering from injury-related health issues, but he knew that he needed to compete in the race to qualify for the Games. When the World Triathlon Series race in Yokohama, Japan, was cut short, Kemper was asked to move up to the waiting list as an alternate. When he was not on the starting list, he was forced to withdraw from the race. If he had stayed in the event, he would have been the first alternate to drop out.
Kemper's incredible career is the product of hard work and determination. He has fought back from an injury and illness that forced him to miss months of competition, but his perseverance has paid off. He has also won five world championships and has a gold medal at the Olympic trials.
Hunter Kemper has made the sport his life and has won his first triathlon at age 10. Since then, he has won the Ironkids National Championships five times and is a passionate advocate for sharing triathlon with children.
Japanese triathlete Yuko Takahashi is one of the rising stars of the sport. She began racing at a young age and has since competed on the World Triathlon Series. In 2015, she was the top Japanese finisher at the ITU World Olympic Qualification Event in Rio de Janeiro. In 2018, she won gold at the Asian Games. She has a long history of competing in triathlon, as both her father and her three siblings are amateur athletes.
Takahashi's gold medal is her third consecutive Asian Games gold medal. In the individual race, she led the field in the swim and didn't relinquish it, finishing in 1 hour, 59 minutes and 29 seconds. The win also makes Takahashi the second Japanese women to win a gold medal in a triathlon at the Asian Games. Zhong Mengying and Hoi Long of Macau claimed silver and bronze, respectively.
Takahashi was active in junior triathlon, and was introduced to the sport by her father. In 2007, she made her international debut at the Tongyon ASTC Triathlon Asian Cup. She has since won the Japan Student Championship four times. In 2014, she was selected to represent Japan at the FISU World University Triathlon in Brazil. She finished seventh at the Niyon FISU World University Triathlon in 2015, and was also selected to compete at the World Duathlon Championship.
In the women's race, Nakata set a new personal best of eight and a half minutes. She is now the fourth fastest Japanese woman in history. Meanwhile, Miyoko Ota was the third Japanese woman to cross the finish line. Another Japanese woman, Aiko Kanematsu, DNFed late in the race. In team competition, the Japanese women took bronze behind France and U.S.A.
Ethan Brown is seeking his first berth in the Olympic Games after opening his season with three top-eight finishes in the ITU Pan American Cup. The two-time USA Triathlon Under-23 National Champion is also a former top-ten finisher in the Elite Race Series. He is currently ranked 15th in the ITU World Triathlon Series.
A highly-regarded athlete, Ethan Brown is still young but has been on a steady trajectory since making his competitive debut in 2011. His recent achievements include finishing fifth at the La Paz Pan American Championships and ninth overall at the Ishigaki ITU World Cup last year. In addition to Brown, another American athlete making his ITU World Triathlon Series debut is Kaitlin Shiver. Shiver won the 2011 USA Triathlon Collegiate National Championship and Under-23 National Championship. She has also been ranked fourth at the ITU Junior World Championships. With her first ITU World Triathlon Series appearance, Shiver is aiming for a first Olympic berth.
Portugal and Spain will face off in their first game of the tournament. The two top-ranked teams are slated to clash in the first round. Let's take a look at the key moments of this game, from Cristiano Ronaldo's hat trick to Portugal's defense.
Cristiano Ronaldo's hat trick of goals against Spain at the 2018 FIFA World Cup is something that will live in the memory of many football fans. Although his form has been in decline in recent years, his hat trick against Spain is still a moment to remember. In the first half of the game, Ronaldo opened the scoring for Portugal before Diego Costa equalised for Spain. It was only three minutes later that Ronaldo scored his third and final goal, which made the scoreline 2-1 in favor of Portugal.
The match began badly for Spain with a naive trip by Nacho. Ronaldo looked like the leader of his team and made sure that his team dominated possession. After a free kick was awarded for a foul on Gerard Pique, Ronaldo took it from a dangerous position and blasted a stunning free-kick past David de Gea.
Ronaldo's hat trick against Spain is the 51st hat trick in World Cup history, and he is only 33 years old. The previous record is held by Rob Rensenbrink, who was 30 years and 335 days old when he scored a hat trick against England in 1978. Ronaldo's third goal was his first direct free-kick goal at a major tournament.
In the 88th minute, Cristiano Ronaldo completes his hat trick against Spain, becoming the first player in history to score in eight consecutive major tournaments. Earlier, the game had been a tight one for Portugal, but he managed to swerve a free-kick past the Spanish wall before sending it in for the opener. In the second half, Portugal had a penalty given after Nacho Fernandez fumbled.
Cristiano Ronaldo's performance during Portugal's 1-0 win over Spain was a classic example of a player stepping up for the big occasion. Spain started the game poorly after a naive trip from Nacho. In the 22nd minute, Ronaldo volleyed home a penalty after David de Gea had fouled him. Despite scoring the penalty, he was fairly quiet during the second half and didn't have a shot on goal. Spain were able to survive after a goalless draw, but a man who had been deemed a 'goal-scoring machine' by his teammates and coach was not.
The 1-0 scoreline was a huge shock for Spain and Portugal fans. Spain had looked like a team in the knockout rounds, but Ronaldo had a disproportionate influence on the game. Spain looked vulnerable to Ronaldo's ability to surge in behind, whether in a wide space or a tight space. Even at a crucial time, the Portuguese dominated possession, which led to a penalty after two minutes from the end.
Portugal had nine players in their starting line-up, including Ronaldo. The Portuguese led 1-0 at half-time, and Ronaldo was their captain. Spain came back after the break, and Costa and Nacho hit back for the Spanish. However, Spain's tumultuous last few days proved to be the difference between the two sides. Despite the loss, Spain's players weren't downbeat and were unfazed by the game.
Although Ronaldo's performance wasn't perfect, his goal against Spain was one of his best for Portugal. Although the team didn't win the game, Ronaldo's performance was outstanding and gave Portugal a point to be proud of. The only thing missing was a winning goal.
Portugal's defending against Spain was one of the most impressive displays in the World Cup. Cristiano Ronaldo scored three goals against Spain, while laying off the ball to his teammates when he wanted to take control of the game. The hat trick was his first against Spain in a World Cup game. The match was extra special for the Portuguese captain, who learned a day before the game that he'd been fined PS16.4 million for tax evasion and had been given two years of suspended prison time.
Portugal's home kit has traditionally been mainly red, with green trim. This is a reference to the colors of the Portuguese flag. In recent years, the Portuguese team has used a mix of red and green shorts. Portugal's away kit has also varied. It has typically been white, with blue shorts and red and green highlights. More recently, the team has used a turquoise-teal color in their away kits.
Portugal's defense against Spain was surprisingly solid, despite the fact that Spain had the higher number of shots and possessed the ball for much of the match. The Portuguese goalkeeper Dani Carvajal made a vital block when Ronaldo had an opportunity to shoot from inside the box. As a result, Spain dominated possession in the first half.
Despite the lackluster performance, the game still had its share of spark. Spain dominated possession and patiently waited for the right moment to score. Spain's only attempt in the second half came from Bruno Fernandes, whose shot rebounded wide.
Isco's performance during the Portugal v Spain 2018 FIFA World Cup clash in Sochi, Russia, was one of the highlights of the tournament. The Arsenal and Tottenham midfielder was instrumental in moving the ball and probing Portugal's defensive shortcomings. The striker was also in the box for the opening goal, but his effort hit the woodwork rather than the target.
Despite the goal, Spain were not as dominant as they were during the first half. In fact, Spain had a much better game overall than Portugal. The home team were able to dominate possession of the ball. While Spain were unable to create as many chances as the visitors, Isco was one of the key players.
The game began slowly for both sides, but eventually Portugal took the lead with a penalty from Cristiano Ronaldo. After Spain's goal, Portugal went on to score their second goal. Cristiano Ronaldo had a dream game, scoring three goals in three World Cups.
Spain looked to be on the brink of elimination, but a late goal by Iago Aspas equalized the score. Despite the late goal, Spain is on top for now and Portugal must fight back in the final game to take home the World Cup trophy.
In the final, Spain will face their neighbours, Argentina. Spain is on an unbeaten run after defeating Iran in the Round of 16. But after defeating Brazil, Spain's team will face a country they have never beaten before. Cristiano Ronaldo, a former Barcelona midfielder, will be keen to make an impact during the tournament.
The match is set for 2 p.m. ET, and will be broadcast live from Sochi. It is one of the crucial games of the tournament, and both sides will want to win. The winner of this match will advance to the knockout round.
Cristiano Ronaldo returned to action against Spain in the second half after he had been sidelined with an injury. The Manchester United star was initially an unused substitute. However, the Portuguese came from behind in Seville to earn a 1-1 draw. Ricardo Horta's second international goal secured a valuable point for Portugal.
The criticism of Cristiano Ronaldo has been intense throughout the match. After a poor performance against the Czech Republic last week, the Portuguese media have criticised the Portuguese captain for not making the most of his chances on the pitch. Some even branded him a finished player and useless. In response, Fernando Santos has said that his decision not to start Ronaldo was not a reflection on his quality.
Despite his goal, Ronaldo was unable to make the most of his chances. The last opportunity of the game fell to Ronaldo at a poor angle inside the box. His usual chances would have been enough to win the game, but this time, the Real Madrid forward sliced his shot wide of the post. Spain's goalkeeper Unai Simon saved Ronaldo's third attempt, ensuring that he missed the final goal.
The Portuguese XI includes Pepe, Costa, Cancelo, Danilo, Guerrero, and Moutinho. The Spanish team, meanwhile, features an aging squad with a new coach. The Portuguese XI also includes Leao, A Silva, and Fernandes.
Cristiano Ronaldo is back for the second half of Portugal's World Cup match against Spain. After conceding a goal early in the first half, they've been slow to come up with a serious attack. Spain's two second half goals came as a result of a lacklustre attack from Portugal. After conceding a goal in the first half, the hosts haven't had a real chance to win the match.
Miranda Lambert is set to embark on a fifteen-date spring tour with Little Big Town, titled "The Bandwagon Tour 2022." The tour kicks off May 06, 2022 in Houston, Texas, and will run through June 11 in Camden, N.J. Both acts will be supported by The Cadillac Three. Miranda Lambert will be opening for Little Big Town on the tour, and the two are also set to headline Tuscaloosa, Ala.
