Bayern Munich defeated Werder Bremen, 4-1 in the league cup match yesterday. In display were their new signings for the first time in German soil. League Cup is the six-team tournament, comprises last season’s Bundesliga top four, German Cup winners Nuremberg and second division champions Karlsruhe
Out came Klose to spearhead the forward line. Their most expensive signing this year Ribery, joined Ze Roberto, who has been brought back from Brazil and their new Turkish attacking mid-fielder signing from Schalke, Hamit Altintop. Luca Toni was injured and hence did not play this match. Looking at the current Bayern line-up, they are strong enough to win the UEFA Cup and shoudl possess one of the best teams in Europe without doubt. Just have a look at their line-up.
GK – Oliver Kahn
Def – Sagnol (French), Lucio (Brazilian), Van Buyten (Belgian), Philip Lahm (German)
Mid – Ribery (French), Hamit Altintop (Turkish), Ze Roberto (Brazilian), Van Bommel (Dutch) and super stud Bastian Schweinsteiger(German)
Fwd – Klose (German), Podolski (German), Luca Toni (Italian), Roque Santa Cruz (Paraguayan)
This is one formidable line up and looking at the attacking football they played yesterday I dont have any doubts that they will have a very memorable season. We will know how good they are in their next match where they play VfB Stuttgart
In the US, Beckham made his debut for LA Galaxy against Chelsea and hearing from the noise the crowd made to see him in flesh, I am sure he would be worth all the money paid by Galaxy in endorsements atleast. It seems they have already sold or got orders for 250, 000 jerseys!!!
As he walked past the crowd and was loosening up before being substituted, the crowd went into a frenzy and they were no longer interested in the match. Hope the other players in the team dont get intimidated by all this.
