Barcelona won the club world cup for the second time. The objective of the FIFA club world cup previously the intercontinental cup is to showcase samples of football because it is played by clubs on various continents around the world, namely, Europe, south America, the remaining Americas and the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and Oceana. But that is not what is currently happening. Since the 1990’s when big money got into the sport in Europe the wealthy clubs have been moving abroad and buying the best players that money can purchase. Since it is drained away countries especially hurt in America like Brazil and Argentina. By way of instance, in Argentina between 2009 and 2018 some 1800 players were recruited by overseas clubs mostly from Europe and in Brazil the amount was 1440 Gerardo Molina- sports advertising.
It is not surprising that the four club piala dunia 2018 were won by European clubs. However, this was a sampling of the game that is native. In 2018 inter Milan won but only 5 players on the group of 23 were Italian, the remainder coming predominantly from South America Wikipedia. I’m amused to hear television commentators refer to the inter Milan group as the Italians. In 2011, Barcelona won the cup again and their group of 23 included 10 foreign players, again largely from South America Wikipedia. By comparison, another finalist Santos of brazil included players who were in decline and had returned from playing in Europe such as eland and Leo or quite young and just about to get onto the conveyor belt to Europe such as dandle 20 years old who promptly after the last match left for Porto in Portugal. In 2012 Corinthian from Brazil was the victors but the runners-up Chelsea comprised 3 Brazilian internationals, namely David Luis, armies and Oscar.
This influx of foreign players gains not just the European clubs but also national teams as a great deal of them end up playing for the country where they ply their trade. Another way in which the exodus of players strikes South America is that if the cope liberators the regional tournament ends in June that the European clubs instantly sign the best players on the winning team so the team that plays at the club world cup in December differs from the one which qualified. South America should adopt this exodus to stop. It is not damaging their teams but also their clubs. Cash-strapped clubs need to export players to create income that deprives the leagues of the most attractive players leading to less audiences and earnings and a decline in standards.
