at the end, the opponent was still to be an insurmountable obstacle. Or better: its Fans. The fans of FC São Paulo, blocked the road, in hopes of getting a last look at their football favorites catch a glimpse of or even a Selfie with you. For the Delegation of the Concord, there was no way Through. Escorted by the American police, had to take the Bus that brought the players and coaches back in their quarters, the reverse. On the square in AL Lang Stadium, it had looked like before, a little different. It is the Frankfurter, the messengers, especially in the first half by a quick Push forward the six-time Brazilian champion, a sample of their skills were looked at, the single-minded and attractive.

F. A. Z.

Adi Hütter, the Coach of Hessen, liked it, how powerful his people are created again and again, Pressing situations, the Events were far to move from their own penalty area and the basis for the 2:1 victory created. Ante Rebic who scored with a powerful shot from the spot under the crossbar to the guide (10. Minute), emerged before the break, as a Central attacker. The Croat ran out and had to redouble his efforts, as if it would go at the “Florida Cup” is more than a bit of Prestige, and drove his in addition to people again and again to the attack, back spurtete but also to close the defensive gaps, and was not at all like in his best world Cup moments, or the last Cup final not a two fight out of the way. After the compensation by Nenê (55.) a pass from Luka Jovic which was deflected by Vinícius untenable for the own Keeper into an own goal (64.), for the decision.

auswechselte on side, as Hütter ten man (only Branimir Hrgota stand both halves on the field), formed Rebic the pivotal point in the Frankfurt Offensive in the near future in the Bundesliga and the Europa League, in turn, high hopes loads. Hütter, who don’t like it actually, particularly, to identify the specific actors from his collective, to highlight, to praise, later spoke of a “very good Test”. Done on the Success of Rebic a significant contribution: “the Ante has been worked very much,” said the Austrian, “it was a very good game from him”. With his readiness of the 25-Year-old, the impressions confirmed, by which it mediated in the previous days while staying at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, the image that the new year could start for him better than the old one ended, which was otherwise, points rich in sports height.

Rebic had to cancel due to a foot injury prior to Christmas be involved in the duel with FC Bayern and, consequently, the opportunity missed, with the Munich defence that he had eaten in a may Triumph in Berlin’s Olympic stadium after line and thread to measure in turn the forces. Of the so far 25 matches, which were contested by the frankfurters since the summer break, he completed 16 and scored five times. In Hoffenheim, he flew at the beginning of October with the Yellow-Red card from the place, otherwise, he was traded by Hütter regularly or replaced, in three encounters he was the full duration. The short recovery phase after the world Cup adventure, in which he could be up for the final against France only because he was after a blow on the instep with pain medications to treat his late entry into the preparation and recurring muscular discomfort, which were regarded by the doctors as a stress reaction of the body, were the reasons which forced him to keep often the feet as it is him actually loving.

announced Rebic recently in Frankfurt, probably the first of January, “back to the Old”. Colleagues, the talk in Florida about him, did it on Thursday consistently benevolent. As Marc Stendera, who said that it felt, how big the ambition is, to go with the Rebic works: “You noticed that he always wants to play.” In the internal Goalgetter Ranking Rebic is behind Jovic, who met in the Bundesliga and in international business taken together so far, 17 Times, and Sebastién Haller, comes on twelve hits. However, the power pack indicated on Thursday that he wants to interpret his role might be a little different than the last, and not only the final look, but instead for the cheaper post-formatted in addition to man as a pioneer, deserves to make. “We have all seen that the Ante is fresh and vital,” said Gelson Fernandes. “That makes me happy Because it is good for him and good for us.”
