Just like every Sunday, we whet your appetite with a sneak peek at what is on the menu on FIFA.com in the coming days.
While we patiently count down to the FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017, we continue to gear up for the event by revisiting memorable episodes in the competition’s history. This week, we will be looking back at Mexico legend Cuauhtemoc Blanco‘s winning goal against Brazil in the final of the 1999 edition and USA’s superb campaign in 2009, when the Stars and Stripes finished runners-up to A Seleção.
With Australia champing at the bit ahead of their return to the tournament after a 12-year absence, we will also be bringing you the thoughts of veteran Socceroos midfielder Mile Jedinak.
That is not the only high-profile exclusive interview headed your way in the days ahead. For example, on Monday, you have the chance to catch up with Paris Saint-German attacker Julian Draxler, who will be discussing his bright start at the French club and his increasingly prominent role for the German national team. Likewise, you will not want to miss our conversation with former Italy forward Patrizia Panico, who became the first female coach of an Italian men’s national team when she took charge of the U-16s in March.
How are things shaping up on the Algerian women’s football scene? You can find out this week, as we turn our attention to the long path from Africa to the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019™.
Last but not least, we will once again be keeping you posted on all of our other upcoming tournaments. On this note, the road to the FIFA Interactive World Cup 2017 resumes next weekend, with two more FIFA Ultimate Team regional finals in store, and you can rest assured that we will be telling you everything you need to know.
Have a great week of football on FIFA.com.
