Argentina’s shock defeat, Ronaldo’s surprise exit, United’s possible sale and Giroud’s record – a day to remember in world football


Today (Tuesday, November 22) was full of sporting events that dominated world media headlines.

It all started with Argentina’s surprising loss to Saudi Arabia in the first match of the group stage at the World Cup.

Lionel Messi’s representative was shocked at Lusail Stadium in ‘Qatar 2022’ with a reversal of the result in the second half (2-1). The event moved on to another soccer superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo. With a short notice, Manchester United announced the termination of the contract of the Portuguese, who thus leaves Old Trafford and is looking for a new club. It was not long before the news came that the Glazer family has instructed the banks to deal with the sale of Manchester United. The Raine Group, which was previously employed by Roman Abramovich to manage the sale of Chelsea FC, will act as the club’s ‘exclusive financial adviser’ during the process. Rothschild and Co. in the meantime, he acts as the exclusive financial advisor of the shareholders of the Glazer family.

The Premier League club announced on Tuesday evening that the Glazers were “commencing a process to explore strategic alternatives for the club”, which was designed to “enhance the further development of the club”.

Next up, the night of World Cup football concluded with a commanding victory for France (4-1) against Australia in Group D.

In this meeting, Olivier Giroud scored two goals for Les Bleus, raising to 51 the total number of goals for the representative, as much as the legend Thierry Henry has, and thus tied at the top as the best scorer in the history of France.
