Crisis was the one word that was used often. But the reaction of the team’s inner sanctum itself has been measured. “It’s a blow,” offered Lionel Messi. It was a blow but they will trust in the methods that made them one of the best footballing sides on the planet for the last 18 months or so. Before that loss to the Asian outfit, they were on a 36-match winning streak. It’s not like they were terrible against the Saudis. The underlying metrics suggested that Argentina ought to have won that game comfortably So, the side . will back themselves to complete the turnaround against Mexico on Saturday before the final group game against Poland. Like this team showed at the Copa America in 2021, they are a mature side that doesn’t allow pressure to act as a millstone around their neck.

There’s lots of it, there’s also the added pressure of expectation (the country’s Labour Minister said something suggesting ‘inflation can wait, first we need to win the Cup’). Another team in a similar position is Germany. After that reverse against Japan, the fourtime champions know a defeat against Spain will be terminal to their chances. Considering die mannschaft revamped the entire coaching staff only last year — they identified German Champions League winning coach Hansi Flick to lead the transformation after Jogi Low’s method turned stale. Going home just when the party is about to start could result in a post-mortem. For their part, Spain know that a win will signal their intentions of becoming one of the early favourites. Two of the other favourites are sitting pretty, knowing a second win in the stage will send them through ahead of schedule. Brazil and holders, France. The latter’s attacking depth doesn’t match Brazil but they have Kylian Mbappe. The Selecao purred against Serbia and will not be overly bothered by Neymar’s injury They aren’t . as dependent on him and have multiple avenues to score goals.

Kapil Sibal said Anand Teltumbde was estranged from his brother Milind, a Maoist leader who was killed in an encounter with security forces last year. They hadn’t met in 30 years, he added HC held mini trial, says NIA The NIA argued that the HC erroneously granted bail by conducting a mini trial by analysing five documents seized during searches on Teltumbde’s premises and his statements under Section 164 of CrPC Woman Maoist ‘avenges’ father, kills uncle Big Round 2 matches A s i s h M e h ta / U ma S h an k a r Ka r l France A woman Maoist allegedly abducted her uncle with help of fellow cadres and killed him on Wednesday night to avenge her father’s purported murder last year.

He wrote about impact of neo-liberal globalisation on Dalits. Wherever there is a Dalit issue, he is there. In the process there is some organisation which is closely related to some other organisation. If I am an academic and I give speech then that doesn’t make me a terrorist,” Sibal argued. He also said Teltumbde did not even attend the Elgar Parishad event. ‘Hadn’t met brother in 30 years’ Dozens feared dead as Iranian forces open fire Tehran: Iranian security forces opened fire on protests after Friday prayers in the restive southeastern province of SistanBaluchistan, leaving dozens of people dead or wounded, activists said.
