The Blues World Champions on the hunt for the European title with an extra Benzema. It will also be played in South America and then an eye on the Olympics
World champion France, who debut against Germany on Tuesday “in a match that could be a final or a semi-final”, are the big favorites of the European Championship. And his coach accepts the prediction in the long cover interview of Sportweek on newsstands tomorrow with the Gazzetta for a total price of 2 euros. Indeed, according to Didier Deschamps, with the reintegration of Karim Benzema “we are even stronger”.
The novelty Karim
The Real Madrid striker is the big news among the Bleus and Didì explains that before calling him he had to clarify many things with him, after being accused in 2016 of “having succumbed to the racist part of French society” for not having him brought to the European Championship. All resolved for the good of the national team which, if successful, would make Deschamps the first man to have won the World Cup and the European Championship both as a player and as a coach. Meanwhile, he congratulates Roberto Mancini for the work done with Italy which in this tournament “may have the ambition to go far”.
The America’s Cup
The America’s Cup takes place in Brazil at the same time as the European Championship. Sportweek deals with it with another exclusive interview with Cristian Romero, one of the best defenders of the last championship and his debut with Argentina. Manchester United really likes him, even if his dream is to stay in Bergamo thanks to the right of redemption (16 million) that President Percassi has agreed with Juventus: “I hope you will call me soon to give me the news”. Also because, he explains, with Grasperini he feels he has grown a lot from a tactical point of view: “Today I am much more mature and have more confidence in myself”. Sportweek then takes you to meet Francesco Farioli, the philosopher coach who at the age of 32 leads the Karagumruk in the Turkish first division, a team full of old acquaintances from our Serie A: Viviano, Bertolacci, Borini, Biglia, Castro and Zukanovic. And this week’s newfound friend is Walter Baseggio, the Belgian of Italian origins who played for Treviso 15 years ago and is now his city councilor for sport.
Olympics at the start
But as the Olympics on SW approaches, there is also room for athletics, with a meeting with the beautiful middle-distance runner Gaia Sabbatini. And then sailing with the Giraglia at the start next Wednesday, swimming with Raoul Bova who together with Rosolino, Magnini and Brembilla recites in the docufilm “Last race” present at the Bardolino Film Festival and more football on the 65th anniversary of the first of the 13 Champions Cups / Champions League won by Real Madrid.
