‘Bread and circuses’, the Roman emperors proposed when the people, fed up with bad politics and economic scarcity, threatened revolts at the gates of the imperial palace.

Fortunately, in Spain and in other countries in our European environment, social tension has not yet broken out, but if Putin cuts off the gas, we are going to see significant social conflict in the fall, because there are already many weaker sectors of society that they can’t anymore.

And in Spain ‘the circus’, which distracts citizens and makes them forget about everyday problems, is football. And this fall, which is shaping up to be a hot social period, for all the more reason. And also because in addition to the national championships such as the Spanish League that has just started, we have in sight the World Cup in Qatar that starts on November 20.

The Spanish National Soccer Team, which trains and is led by Luis Enrique, will travel there and, although it is not among the favorites of the tournament, such as France, Brazil, Argentina and England, it also has its opportunity with a very young team of great class and with the ability to control the ball.

Although our National Team lacks outstanding scorers, even though Morata seems to be in good form. What now, after his return to Atlético de Madrid, he will have the opportunity to demonstrate in this start of the League that he has just started.

And with the good preamble of the European Super Cup that the amazing Real Madrid has just won in Helsinki. The one who raised his 14th European Cup in Paris after overcoming, with epic comebacks, the difficult qualifiers with PSG, Chelsea, City and Liverpool.

Ancelotti’s Real Madrid, with a ‘senior’ and brilliant center (Kross, Casemiro and Modrich) now renewed with more youth and with two matchless stars at the top of the attack, Benzema, and in goal, Courtois, who will face a Barcelona reinforced and renewed, after the departure of Messi. And the very compact Atlético de Madrid, in addition to the not insignificant, Seville, Valencia and Villarreal.

Although, from now on, all eyes are already on the World Cup in Qatar. And, previously, in the preparatory matches for the championship for which Luis Enrique is expected to decide, after many hesitations and changes, which is his official and starting eleven, because until now we have seen a continuous rotation of players in all the lines of the team, which has prevented the ideal team from training with insistence and greater coordination. Although at the moment the ball is rolling in the League as a prelude to the great event in Qatar.
