In 2006, the world soccer celebrated in Germany it seemed that it was going to be a party more of the king s sport as it happens every four years... but no, that world was very different: Zinedine Zidane I played his last competition as a soccer player before his official withdrawal. Zion had announced that that same year he wanted to say goodbye to football, winning the International Cup again and hanging the boots on top of the world. Before the competition, the French midfielder would withdraw before Real Madrid after the term of a league he did not get but who fought until the last second, in front of a Bernabéu Santiago who backed a living legend of world football and that he left him a Huge farewell before his last tournament in Germany.
Already in June, the French team joined to try to make a good performance with a combination of veteran players like Thou ram or coupe with players who had a traveler but were about to explode all their potential as Frank Bribery, but always with Zidane as the indisputable leader of the Gauls. The selection was not very favorite despite the fact that few 8 he will win the World Cup with Zinedine himself in La Saga, but the story had changed enough and Brazil of Ronaldinho and Aka were devastating in the opened parties. While throughout the group phase the French were nothing of the other world despite having a pretty affordable group, they were during the eliminating rounds when the French magician shone above all.
In Eighths of Final had to face a Spain commanded by Raúl and Iker Cadillac who were a razor in group stage and a very hard rival of Roger, so much that they began winning the game. However, the Gauls came back with a goal from Zidane to complete the game in which we could only take off the hat in front of monsieur. It would be the confrontation against Brazil when the French magician would leave one of the best performances of his life, but the best of him.
Although he could not score, his performance on these quarterfinals showed that could be the best of all several years more, but he wanted to retire on top and knew that the World Cup should be his. This is how Zion s magic was still shining without stopping until the final of the World Cup, which he would have to face an Italy that came with the eternal philosophy of the Carpaccio and the Italian claw.
What looked like a dream movie seemed like a reality: Zinedine Zidane s last game was going to be at an end of the World Cup. Everything started with a face for the French magician, which would open the score with a penalty for the Gauls and that as not, I would throw Zion. The result? A goal to La ANENA to the largest goalie in the history of Italy, Giannini Buffoon. Only he could do it, only a magician was able to look at a giant as Gigi and mark the most important penalty in him in that way. But everything would vanish after Materazzi warmed it as much as to provoke the expulsion of it with the historic head of it. Thus, it ended a magical race that despite not getting the world historic, it took so much soccer to a generation that would be like the magician and king of the ball for the rest of football history.
The end of a mouse magician
15 years later, we find a similar situation adapted to our generation: Kim Khan Dong-Ha had to end his career due to military service, and as not, I wanted to retire winning a World Cup of League of Legends. From groups phase, the To planer Korean was still falling in love with with the ability to play that I had and the magic that could only have being the only player in the world who has achieved a entails. Each game that progressed n you fell in love even more, but even more you saddened us that despite your withdrawal, the level that gave along all the games showed that we could have khan for a while, but it could not be Thus, he wanted to retire at the top just like the French magician.
In the quarterfinals, Mad Lions was lurking on several occasions, but the to planer always appeared when it was necessary with plays that will be remembered for years with the Kennel of him. It does not matter whoever had ahead, there was no one who had more experience in this than him, the father of the team and a generation of which few remain. t1 was a turning point, since they put them against the ropes for a moment, but Khan already knew how they worked these moments and was totally vital at the comeback, since his grasses in front of Anna broke the game and the Serious from the fifth map was as clean as its passage through all these worlds. Now I would only miss the final boss, a last series to retire and that could give him the World Cup once and for all.
As happened with OZ, the prize would finally end up in the hands of an eternal rival who looked like the least favorite to take the tournament, but the League of Legends is like that, and it will not always have a happy ending. Despite his defeat, Khan s performance in the five games were to be the best To planer of the present, leaving unforgettable plays with grasses in a dragon struggle that would decrease the game for Koreans and access to the Fifth map that in the end would end up losing, but his level was still the highest.
This is how khan He said goodbye to the competitive in the most bitter way, but he did not see him like that, but as a way to face his end : I told my little brothers (teammates) that if they had to blame someone was to me (...) followed me the current to have a carefree interview and thus came out. (...) Thanks for everything and I hope you are happy These were Khan s words before the final farewell of the competitive of League of Legends to provide military service to the country of him.
This is how two players were found that in love with great and small, to be the inspiration for the players who are now breaking the panorama. The two players had stains in their career as a header or a Coney to a region (China), but they have always been the most regular of their team and have not dropped the level at any time. Even so, over several years over, people talked about if they were too old, but they showed on the court they had rope for a while. And it is that of the great players you can not say such things, it is only going to get up and applauding saying that you could see these players and that none else can enjoy everything they gave us these two figures in their respective competitive areas.
This does not try to see who was the best or saying that I could have played differently to benefit the team, but when you lose way of being yourself, the prizes are not absolutely worth anything. I want to mention finally a football teacher as it was Johan Cuff, who left us a phrase to frame and that I want to retouch to have better understanding in this area, but the same meaning: Who thinks that football It is played with the legs will think that the League of Legends is played with their hands. Soccer and League of Legends are played with the head and that of these two legends worked differently; So differently that they left us unique moments and that we had the luxury of enjoying. Until always, monsieur khan.
