Football tragedy in Indonesia: A match between Arema vs Persebaya (two rival teams from East Java) ended 2-3 and the subsequent riot caused over 120 deaths.

 

Home fans (Arema) began climbing the fence and entered the field, started destroying things before the police used tear gas to disperse them. Unfortunately it caused more panic and a stampede happened.

 

34 people died on the spot, over 90 died in the hospital….

That is one of the worst mass police actions in quite a while in terms of visibility....whoever was in charge there and gave the tear gas order is directly responsible for dozens and dozens of deaths :(

We are bidding with Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Three different continents in one bid...

 

Personally I miss the days of one or at the most two countries hosting (provided that they were neighbours). Now it's simply too much...

Slovak Football Federation announced that the 20th November we will play a Friendly match against Chile.

 

Nothing so exceptional in this sentence you will say, anyway, this will be the official farewell of Marek Hamšík with the National Team. Still not known how many minutes he will play in the game, certain is just that he will be the team captain.

 

Marek last appearance in the NT was in 2021 in the home game against Slovenia during the 22 WC qualifier. It was his 135th official match for Slovakia (He is already the record holder, also the all time top scorer of SVK NT with 26 goals)

Qatar will replace China and will host 2023 Asian Cup

 

I believe Qatar can't host it in Summer (because of the weather). I assume it will be moved to late 2023 or January 2024.
