Suarez Leads Barca to Final of FIFA Club World Cup
Suarez Leads Barca to Final of FIFA Club World Cup – The last match between Barca and Guangzhou made the latest great moment in FIFA Club World Cup. Began with incomplete formation of the team, Barca makes a less powerful appearance. How did they play without Messi and Neymar? Who made the brave movement saving the team? Here is the report of the last match.
As reported before, Messi was diagnosed with colic, an abdominal pain that probably is connected with kidney stone, while he was expected to be in the formation fighting Guangzhou. Barca makes a stronger team so the result shouldn’t be very surprising. However, without Messy, the team wasn’t expected to play as brilliant as usual. Neymar absence was also disappointing. His groin problem prevented him for playing, but sources mentioned his availability for the final. We may not get to see Messi during final match, but at least, Barca will appear a little stronger than the last match. Especially, Sunday is the final.
Luis Enrique made a strong statement since the absence of Messi and Neymar that the whole team was made ready for every possibility. They don’t know if those two players are going to be available to play for the final. Messi appearance, especially, will depend on the result of the medical test and what is planned about it. Enrique also insists that the absence will not change anything. The team will play with their best performance as expected, and they claim to have all the resource for the team. This should be comforting even though fans will not be very happy about it.
Suarez, the star of the match, lead Barca to final on world-quality skills. Ivan Rakitic threw a long range shot but it was parried by Guangzhou keeper, Li Shuai, but Suarez made it. The double lead came from the same player when he made volley with the most sublime angel possible with lofted pass by Andres Iniesta. The so called “hat trick” was completed with his movement on penalty kick by Huang Bowen. Suarez was said the assassin of the penalty area. He seemed to be able to resolve even the most impossible moment in the area. He, somehow, encouraged the other players during the game.
In recap, Barca has fewer players on the team during the game comparing to Guangzhou that brought 12 substitutes in the line up. One of the players in field got the yellow card though. Barca made 16 fouls while Guangzhou made 9. The four corner kicks belong to Barca, and the rest three belong to the rivals. 76% of the match is made by Barca, which is logical due to different reputation and level of the team. However, the rival on final cannot be underestimated. We should hope Neymar can join the crusade while Messi will most probably miss it.
It appears that Barca successfully enter the Sunday’s final in most amusing way. Losing its two bright star doesn’t mean losing its chance to enter final. Valuable players are the key to it. Suarez made bold and wonderful trick, giving the match something nice to watch and glorious winning as expected.
