Original title: The national football team’s naturalized players who were worth hundreds of millions of yuan now have fractures and only two are left.
In the World Cup preliminaries in November, the national football team’s naturalized player lineup underwent major changes. With players such as Exxon, Fernando, and Luo Guofu declining in form or suffering from injuries, there are not many naturalized players left in the once-large team. Among them, Jiang Guangtai and Li Ke became the only remaining hope. Can these two players turn the tide in the World Cup preliminaries and win honors for the national football team?
Speaking of Jiang Guangtai, SIPG’s defensive backbone has performed stably in recent games, and his defensive ability has even been praised as “Fan Zhiyi’s successor”. In the game, Jiang Guangtai not only has excellent physical fitness, but also has keen insight and good game reading ability. His stable performance undoubtedly provides a solid guarantee for the national football team’s defense.
Looking at Li Ke again, this Guoan midfield interceptor has high hopes after Zheng Zhi gradually faded out of the national team. Although Li Ke’s performance has had ups and downs, he is still the best midfield interceptor in the national football team. When Wu Xi is in poor condition or unable to play, Li Ke’s role will be even more critical.
In the harsh world preliminaries, it is not easy for the national football team to counterattack with only the stable performance of Jiang Guangtai and Li Ke. The fierce competition in the World Cup preliminaries makes every game full of variables. Facing powerful opponents, can the naturalized players of the national football team step forward and become the team’s savior?
Exxon from Rongcheng, Sichuan, is already 34 years old. Both his condition and scoring ability are as good as before. Especially in the warm-up matches in September and October, Exxon, as the backbone of the striker, had very few shooting opportunities. Not much. So how can we beat South Korea and Thailand in this state?
Shandong Taishan’s Fernando was also in worrying condition and playing time. During the battle with Hong Kong, he even got a red card in revenge for Li Shuai.
Luo Guofu, who plays in Brazil, is injured every game. He is no longer the Chinese Super League Golden Boot in 2015, nor is he a naturalized player who scored magical goals in the Li Tie era.
And players like Goulart who have not played a single game and have not been selected for the national football team have directly deregistered. Naturalizing him is a waste of money and time. Therefore, among the group of naturalized players back then, only Jiang Guangtai and Li Ke could still compete.
Despite the difficulties, as football players, it is their duty to win glory for their country and fight for their hometown. Under the leadership of these two naturalized players, we expect the national football team to create miracles in the world preliminaries and bring surprises to the fans. And all this still needs to be proven by their strength on the field.
In future games, the performance of Jiang Guangtai and Li Ke will become the key to the national football team. Let us hope that they can display their strength in the World Cup preliminaries and win honors for the national football team. At the same time, we also hope that other naturalized players can regain their form as soon as possible and contribute to the team. After all, unity and unity are the keys to victory for the national football team.
As fans, we will also cheer for them and hope that they can display their strength in the game and win glory for the country. Let us look forward to seeing how Jiang Guangtai and Li Ke lead the national football team to create glory in the world preliminaries.Return to Sohu to see more
