    Teams involving themselves in political propoganda will suffer.
    Iran   England Germany has allowed themselves to put pressure on players to make political statements 
    Tabloids in England are full of politics of Qatar like migrant labour,  LGBTQ 
    On the other hand 
    Countries like Spain stay away from political propoganda.
    Spanish tabloids are full of playing styles 4-3-3 or 3-4-3 of Luis Enrique.

  • Japan has an amazing youth system. They will soon be a dominant force in World football. Major scouts throughout Europe want their talents 
    One more thing you will notice with all Asian teams including Japan and South Korea who do well, their players are almost 6feet tall and very well built. In east asia where average height is much lesser, what do they do to bring out such physique. Is it spotting only or something else like sports medicine etc. Currently 70% of Indian footballers are from NE, but they will be badly defeated against a physical opposition, cant we implement something similar to what these countries have done. Technique alone wont take us far.

  • The golden generation of Indian football had very strong physical players both from Bengal and Hyderabad.(South)

    Japan tried to play a passive, defensive style in the first half and like Iran, their gameplan blew up in their faces. I thought Hajime Moriyasu was going to waste a very good group of attacking talent, but credit to him for changing their tactics in the second half.

    Hansi Flick looked like he didn't know how to respond. And now the German media are trying in vain to deflect attention from the scoreline by ramping up political sentiment.
    also both of the Japan's goal scored by players in Bundesliga.

  • Iran played extremely  well today, especially second half. Wales had no answer. Great performance

    Iran is a quality team. It's just they are in pressure due to pacy English players and couldn't be able to tackle them properly. Iran would have used long ball tactics after conceding 1st goal.

    Beligum used similar tactics against Canda and got benefited despite outplayed by Candian players. They used similar tactics against Japan in last world cup.

    Watching England vs USA. It is very really good game and USA looking altogether different team today and playing an attacking game. Against Wales, they tried to defend their lead.

    My observation is that India’s best players are what we got and unfortunately most of them are not so tall and strong. Just to give an example - Hyderabad FC has two Indian Center backs 1) Sana and 2) Alex Saji now no doubt sana has decent physique but still he bit skinny at International level, but unfortunately he’s better than Saji who’s built like a African but simply not good enough technically.

    We need a bigger pool of players right from young age and then maybe we can find decent strong players in required positions who are technically good as well.

    Height is NO more a concern guys for our NT. We have pretty good tallest players. Major concern is we don't have enough strong technical & physical players and most of our players are worst in 1:1 situation.

    GK : Dheeraj Singh is shortest player in available GK pool with close to 6 feet and all other players are above 6 ft and GSS is tallest in entire XI with 6.6

    CB : Anwar Ali is shortest player in C.B position with 5.10. As he is very good in the air, we should be fine. Even upcoming player, Ruivah is 5.11 with good aerial abilities and rest are more than 6 feet. 

    FB : Players like Mishra, Roshan , Ashish & Ashique are not shortest players, and we don't need 6 ft players in Full Back or Wing Back positions. Ashique can play in defense, midfield & left-wing.

    Midfield : Though we have shortest players in Midfield with the likes of Brandon, Anirudh & Suresh, to compliment them, we have mix of tallest players with players like Sahal, Jeakson, Danish, Apuia & Deepak Tangri

    Forward : Players like Chettri , Bhutia & Jeje proved that height is not a main factor for strikers/wingers. Even Chhangte with short stature (5.5) is miles better than Manvir, Liston , Farukh , Ishan & Bipin in conversions, opportunities created and mainly 1:1 situation. 

    Players like Liston, Manvir & Bipin are getting benefitted with the quality foreign players around in ISL. Same wouldn't happen in NT. Though this ISL season is comparatively good, our players are still slow, and they get ample time to convert/create a chance in ISL.

    Iran has done Asia proud.
    Beating an arrogant team like Wales and that too after dominating them for a large part of the game.
    Asian teams were expected to do well in this world cup.
    Slowly the gap is narrowing between European and other continents

    Regarding the issue of height, here's something I observed while living in Japan.

    They put a LOT of emphasis on developing technical skills and physical fitness. In the late 80s/early 90s, authorities came to the conclusion that they were at a height disadvantage when compared to other Asian powerhouses, so they needed to work their way around it by strengthening other aspects of their game.

    If you watch the J-league, you will notice that pretty much every Japanese player is good with the ball, and their technique is definitely at a higher level compared to many European leagues. The pace of games is quite slow though, and this is fixed when players sign for top Euro clubs and get used to faster, more aggressive styles of play. Of course, the average height of Japanese players have increased gradually over this time.

    Our focus on height may be a tad outdated. Spain always fields one of the shortest squads in Europe, while Scandinavian teams are among the tallest. English academies used to turn away kids that were "too short for football", but ever since they revamped their grassroots issues, there has been an influx of short, skinny guys who have taken their national team to another level compared to the early 2000s.
