World-class soccer player Lionel Messi begins the next phase of his brilliant career on July 16th. As announced by his new club, Inter Miami, the 36-year-old Argentine will be officially presented next Sunday at MLS Stadium under the slogan “The Unveil”. David Beckham’s club promised “exciting entertainment, speeches on the pitch and more” at the event.

Messi, who won the World Cup with Argentina in December, is expected to be unveiled in Miami alongside former Barcelona teammate Sergio Busquets. Inter Miami is bottom of the Major League Soccer’s Eastern Conference.

Messi’s performance as a “revelation”

Draw for work

Newly promoted SV Wehen Wiesbaden has passed its first pre-season stress test in the second Bundesliga. On Saturday in Wörgl, Austria, Hessians drew 1-1 (1-1) against Danish runners-up FC Nordsjælland. Coach Markus Kuczynski’s team fell behind in the first minute with a goal by Magnus Monk, which Sasha Mokenhaupt (39) equalized with a header before the break.

Rohnert criticizes Flick again

Managing director Oliver Rohnert of Bundesliga club Union Berlin has criticized the selection of personnel by national coach Hansi Flick. “I usually communicate with the management of the national team. There is a direct exchange between Urs Fischer and Hansi Flick. His coaching staff say they decide based on performance – I say: don’t do that,” Rohnert says in an interview with the Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper. Rohnert excites above all. Something not to consider his best star performers Rani Khedira and Ruben Knucci.”For me, it is incomprehensible to continue not to nominate Rani Khedira. He has shown strong performances both nationally and internationally over the course of two years. My thesis: Such a player could have led 1-0 against Japan in the World Cup. “These are not our decisions,” Rohnert said. About a month ago, he had already complained about the “lack of lobby” from last year’s fourth-placed Bundesliga team in the German Football Association.

New Harry Kane show

Bayern Munich continue to struggle for Harry Kane’s commitment. As reported by pay TV Sky, the Munich firm has reportedly made a second bid of €80m plus bonus payments. With an initial bid equivalent to 70 million euros, the record German champions were rejected at the end of June. (dpa/sid)

(sir). Record acquisition Lucas Hernandez will leave Bayern Munich and, as expected, will move to the French club Paris Saint-Germain. Bayern announced this on Sunday. The 27-year-old defender had asked Munich weeks ago to prematurely terminate his contract, which runs until 2024.

The French player’s fee is said to be €45m – plus bonus payments. “We would like to thank Lucas Hernandez for a very successful four years together,” said Munich CEO Jan Christian Dresen.

Bayern have already found a replacement for the 2018 French world champions. The record champions are on the verge of signing defender Min Jae Kim (Napoli FC).

(dpa). With some fears and uncertainties, German soccer players travel from Frankfurt to Sydney for the World Cup on Tuesday. It is clear that the 3-2 defeat in the last test match against Zambia, injuries to Lena Oberdorf and Marina Hegering and above all the loss of defender Caroline Simon are causing problems for the tournament favourites. “We will use the time in Australia now to take the oath as best we can for our next assignments,” said national team coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg when announcing his 23-man squad for the World Cup on Saturday.

After a failed workout against African teams at the World Cup, the mood in Fürth on Friday night was more of crisis than optimism. Captain Alexandra Popp doubted what this result would lead to: “We know German football fans,” said the woman from Wolfsburg. “It’s very easy to set off alarm bells.”

The fact that the women of the German Confederation is threatened with a similar disaster at the World Cup as the men’s in Qatar or the men’s under-21s at the European Championship – of course, no one spoke about it. “It was a great training camp, and the team gathered there,” confirmed Guti Chatzialexiu after the preparations in Herzogenaurach. Despite the defeat, the long-suffering head of the DFB’s national teams seems “very confident in Down Under”.

Voss-Tecklenburg didn’t want to talk everything into pieces, but he addressed the dilemma clearly: “Overall, too many mistakes. All in all, a mixed year,” summed up the 55-year-old after an unconvincing fifth international in 2023. , but he also said, “We’re not frustrated, we’re self-critical and we know what we have to do. There’s also an opportunity we want to take.”

The fact that Caroline Simon, Bayern’s third player after Julia Gwin and Linda Dallmann, is out, “is brutal and takes us all with it,” said Voss Tecklenburg. The defender struggled his way back into the German national team after a few years, but tore his anterior cruciate ligament in extra time against Zambia.

In addition, the very important midfielder Oberdorf (muscular injury in the thigh) and defender Hegerg (bruised foot) were injured. The national coach does not know “whether you can also be present at the first training sessions on site.” At least Oberdorf appeased: “I don’t think that’s fierce.”

In light of these question marks, Voss-Tecklenburg takes Janina Minge from SC Freiburg as a reserve player. The 24-year-old can still slip into the official squad. According to FIFA regulations, sick or injured players can be replaced up to 24 hours before the group A match that Ittihad Women plays against Morocco on July 24th.

“I think it’s great how you handled it. It’s like, ‘Yes, this is a big opportunity for me,’” Voss-Tecklenburg praised Menge, who may never be in the team for the long trip. After Paulina Krompegel left last week, Saray Leander (both TSG Hoffenheim) and Tapia Sellner (ex-Wasmuth) from Wolfsburg and goalkeeper Ina Mahmudovic from MSV Duisburg have also been left out.

The largest group is Champions League finalist Wolfsburg (10), five from Eintracht Frankfurt, and four from German champions Munich. On Tuesday, the vice-champions traveled to Sydney via Dubai, from where they continue their camp at Wyonge. In the World Cup tournament from July 20 to August 20 in Australia and New Zealand, the preliminary round goes between Morocco and Colombia (July 30) and South Korea (August 3).

“With Colombia, the same pace and fitness will come to us,” the coach warned. The DFB ladies, who are actually chasing their third World Cup title after 2003 and 2007, acted defensively and very harmlessly in attack against Zambia. “There was a hitch in the final third. The chances were there. I’m not going to panic now,” Oberdorf said, knowing full well: “It won’t get any easier either.”

(sir). World rowing champion Oliver Zeidler also won his third World Cup of the season. In one, the 26-year-old prevailed in Lucerne, Switzerland, with a superior start-to-finish victory and a lead of nearly eight seconds over Sverre Nielsen of Denmark and Thomas McIntosh (New Zealand).

At the European Championships, which took place at the end of May in the city of Bled, Slovenia, the dominant surprisingly missed the gold medal he was striving for and took only third place. At the World Championships in Belgrade (September 3-10), Zeidler was once again the favorite for his third title.

“These were very good races this year. I’ve been able to improve step by step and I’m now confident in the World Cup,” said Zeidler.

Germany’s eight could bid for another medal, but it needs a big performance boost. The German Rowing Federation (DRV) cruised to the Routsee in fifth place when the Australians won. Three weeks ago in Varese, the eighth player finished third and thus gained self-confidence for the World Cup.

(evening). Last-minute Galaxy victory – Frankfurt’s Nico Strahmann WINNER OF THE MATCH: Hessian’s side beat epic AC Milan on Saturday 40:33 in the Premier League.

It was the final two minutes of the game in Milan when Galaxy quarterback Steve Cluley threw another powerful shot and was found by pass receiver Niko Strahman in the end zone. He defeated the second in the Western Conference newcomer from Lombardy 40:33 (7:13; 13:3; 10:7; 10:10) and is still on the road to success with four straight victories.

The Galaxy showed little tempo and accuracy in attack at first, and the defense did not look as focused as in previous encounters.

The Milanesi tied the game with a field goal with three minutes left to make it 33:33, and overtime was in the air. But then the big Clawey/Strahmann interaction 100 seconds before the final siren meant 33:40 (Pat Rimmler) for Frankfurt.

(dpa/lhe). Eintracht Frankfurt have awarded 20-year-old midfielder Harpreet Gutra a professional contract until 2024. There is also an option for an extension, German club Hessian announced on Sunday. Born in Frankfurt, he has been through several youth teams at Eintracht’s youth academy since 2015 and most recently played for the under-21 side. “Harpreet developed well last season and succeeded in taking his first steps in men’s football,” said sporting director Timo Hardung.
