SPANISH FOOTBALL LIGA | ROUND 2 SUNDAY GAMES FINAL RESULTS

Spanish Football Liga Round 2 matches played tonight with surprise included. Here are all the final scores along with all the goalscorers.

SPANISH FOOTBALL LIGA 2014-2015

Villarreal hosted FC Barcelona & lost to a 81st min goal by substitute Sandro from a great Messi pass. Good game of Football with both teams attacking & creating numerous chances along with both goalkeepers very active with some marvellous saves. In the end the Barça perseverance & perhaps some luck allowed them to find their chance & convert for the winner. FC Barcelona still need some time to find their groove as the new incorporations are still looking for total & complete integration.

Final score 0 - 1 to Barcelona & important 3 points. 


SPANISH FOOTBALL LIGA 2014-2015

Surprise result with Real Sociedad winning 4 - 2 Real Madrid after being down 0 - 2. Great & prideful performance from Real Sociedad which deserved the three points, but a disappointing performance from Real Madrid that brought back memories of Di Maria & Xabi Alonso.

Real Madrid started on fire with a Sergio Ramos header goal in the 5th min & a Gareth Bale second goal in the 11th min. Real Madrid created more opportunities & failed to score more which they later paid for dearly. 


The Real Sociedad comeback happened in the following manner:

  • Iñigo Martinez 34th min
  • Zurutuza 41st min
  • Zurutuza 65th min
  • Carlos Vela 74th min
Most were defensive lapses from crosses & set ball pieces which are unexplained for a team of the level & calibre of Real Madrid. While the last Real Sociedad goal was a hand-ball not called by the referee. 

Either way a shocker from Real Madrid which will open up debate on the need for a striker as Benzema who although hit the post late was practically non-existent. News from England says Manchester United Javier Hernandez will come on loan, but is this enough?
Coach Carlo Ancelotti has plenty of work ahead in coming weeks. By the way Cristiano Ronaldo was rested.

SPANISH FOOTBALL LIGA 2014-2015

Great match & a cliff hanger between Deportivo A Coruña & Madrid Club Rayo Vallecano with a 2 - 2 final draw result

Young ex-Real Madrid player Jose Rodriguez opened the score for Deportivo in the 8th min. Rayo Vallecano equalized with hard work in the 40th min via Bueno & then Bueno again scored in the 73rd min to put Rayo ahead. Just when Rayo had the victory in their hands Deportivo player Cuenca scored the equalizer in the 95th min. Shared points!


Elche 1 - Granada 1 , first goal for Granada from Fran Rico in the 82nd min. The Elche equalizer in the 91st min from Lomban.


La Liga takes a 2 week break due to international match schedule.

JAVIER "CHICHARITO" HERNANDEZ LOAN TO REAL MADRID CLOSE

The news now hitting the Spanish Football online sites is that MANCHESTER UNITED & REAL MADRID have come to an agreement for the former to loan their Mexican International forward Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez to the latter. 

According to "Marca" its a one year loan & the player has still to shut the salary conditions with Real Madrid before it all becomes official. 

Real Madrid loan option

This way Real Madrid finds a reliable substitute & alternative to their current undisputed forward Karim Benzema. The name of Monaco forward Radamel Falcao has been sounding like thunder for the past week, but the Colombian does not fit the "profile". Real Madrid wants a less high profile player who will be willing to accept their secondary role & not directly compete with Benzema. Falcao has the potential to "disrupt" the dressing room equilibrium (also through fan-base pressure) if he sits too much on the bench. Plus the high salary that Falcao currently earns would also rise brows within the Real Madrid players hierarchy, even though it is said the Monaco forward would accept a substantial reduction. 

Fact is, "Chicharito" fits the profile wished by the Club & Coach Ancelotti, along with his reputation as a "game chancer" with important goals in the latter part of the matches when he has come on as a substitute. Javier Hernandez has not been a regular with Manchester United & has lost his protagonist role within the English Club squad. 

Real Madrid can further open up its marketing position in Mexico where "Chicharito" is a popular National Sporting hero.


Stay tuned as we are all awaiting Club confirmation.

SPAIN FOOTBALL TEAM LIST OF PLAYERS FOR FRANCE & MACEDONIA

Spanish Football National Team Selector & Coach Vicente Del Bosque has handed in his list of players that will represent Spain in the upcoming Friendly International game against France on the 4th of September & for the Euro 2016 Group qualifier against Macedonia on the 8th of September.

Spain Football Team

Here is the full list of players:

Goalkeepers: Iker Casillas, David De Gea & Kiko Casilla.

Defenders: Juanfran, Carvajal, Mikel San Jose, Sergio Ramos, Bartra, Raul Albiol, Jordi Alba, Azpilicueta.

Midfielders: Koke, Iturraspe, Busquets, Iniesta, Raul Garcia, Silva, Pedro, Cazorla, Cesc Fabregas & Isco.

Forwards: Diego Costa & Paco Alcacer.

Most observers were expecting big changes after the disastrous World Cup 2014 campaign calling for new blood & new ideas. The novelties are

- Kiko Casillas (27 yrs, RCD Espanyol Goalkeeper)
- Mikel San Jose ( 25 yrs, Athletic Club Bilbao Defender)
- Raul Garcia (28 yrs Atletico de Madrid)
- Paco Alcacer ( 20 yrs Valencia CF Forward)

Players like Carvajal, Bartra, Iturraspe & Isco get called back.

A revolution? Not quiet, back at least with younger talented. In my opinion could have called up another forward, especially with Diego Costa under a injury cloud (just a knock they say). 

Those left out are:
Pepe Reina, Pique, Javi Martinez (injury), Xabi Alonso (retired), Xavi Hernandez (retired), Juan Mata, David Villa & Fernando Torres

Notable here is the absence of FC Barcelona defender Gerard Pique who is out of form at this stage of the season. 

CRISTIANO RONALDO WINS UEFA BEST PLAYER SEASON 2013-2014 AWARD

As expected Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo was awarded this afternoon the "UEFA Best Player season 2013 - 2014". The Portuguese player won the title over Bayern Munich candidates Manuel Neuer & Arjen Robben.

This award was missing in CR7 "collection" with previous winners being Ribery last year, Lionel Messi & Andres Iniesta.

UEFA BEST PLAYER 2013-2014 AWARD

Cristiano Ronaldo had a fabulous 2013 - 2014 season winning the Spanish Cup & UEFA Champions League title along with his record breaking 17 goals scored in the Champions League competition, plus winning the "European Golden Boot Award" (shared with Luis Suarez) with 31 goals. 

Ronaldo was very happy & with his acceptance speech thanked his team-mates, Club & family, while congratulating the other candidates.
