Video: Aurelien Tchouameni scores rocket for France vs England

Defending champions France are facing off against Gareth Southgate’s England in the final Quarterfinal clash of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. After three nervy, world-class clashes preceding it, the hopes for the gargantuan clash are certainly high.

The opening goal on such a big night undoubtedly plays a massive role in deciding the final result. Not only does it lift up the scoring side but puts the opponents under a mountain of pressure that is difficult to conquer. On the night, it was France that got the early breakthrough and it was a doozy from the boots of Aurelien Tchouameni that did the deal.

In the 17th minute, a quick French counterattack ended with Antoine Griezmann laying the ball back to the feet of Aurelien Tchouameni a long way from goal. Completely disregarding the distance from the goal, the Real Madrid midfielder fired the ball goalwards. The shot went in between the legs of Jude Bellingham and straight into the bottom right corner past a helpless Pickford.

The pressure is now on England to come up with a creative solution and break down the resilient French block. The winner on the night will play Morocco in the semifinal later this week.

Even with all the excitement around Kylian Mbappe, it is Vinicius Junior, who continues to be Real Madrid’s biggest star.

In the past few years, the Brazilian has witnessed substantial growth, notably establishing himself as one of the best players in world football.

Vinicius’ rapid rise to prominence has been backed by numbers as well, with the forward racking up 82 goals and 75 assists in 262 competitive matches for Real Madrid.

Vinicius on receiving advice from Ronaldo

In a recent media interaction, Vinicius Junior, when talking about his success at Real Madrid, revealed that the forward constantly receives advice from his compatriot and former Real Madrid legend Ronaldo.

Vinicius particularly pointed out Ronaldo’s advice in 1v1 situations and how it has helped him improve in such scenarios.

“Ronaldo always calls me and gives me advice, he teaches me so many things. Since he told me that his favourite thing is a 1v1 vs a GK, I thought about it a lot and started working on it really hard,” Vinicius said (h/t Madrid Zone).

“Now, every time I’m in a 1v1 with a GK, I’m the calmest guy in the world. Ever since that conversation with Ronaldo, I stopped being afraid of making mistakes in a 1v1,” the forward added.

Vinicius has indeed witnessed an improvement in his 1v1 play in recent years, which has been reflected in his higher goalscoring numbers.

This season, the forward has netted 23 goals in all competitions while racking up 11 assists. His goalscoring prowess, coupled with his ability in 1v1 situations could prove to be critical as Real Madrid take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final next month.

The Brazilian international, though, will be up against a challenging defensive duo of Mats Hummels and Nico Schlotterbeck, who have been able to keep the opposition attacks quiet this season.
