very fast Some of them are already training with or playing for the first team at their clubs In one or two years one or two of them will play in the Bundesliga An important step in their development is playing a World Cup”explained Germany coach Christian Wuck Brazil players celebrate after scoring against Honduras Getty Images "I hope that my strikers are better than the Brazilians We know the team of Brazil Not only do they have excellent team players but also individual players We know that they are very strong and fast but the Germans are not far behind We scored lots of goals in the European U-17 Championships even here we had many chances" said Wuck What’s more astonishing is the understanding the players share on the pitch In the lung-opener against an equally-strong Spain side Brazil played attacking football of the purest form to register a comeback win Lincoln one of the goalscorers was undoubtedly the star man of the game In a tricky clash against the Korea DPR it was Lincoln yet again who stole the headlines and guided his side to a comfortable 2-0 win He scored his third of the tournament against Niger and that was enough for the world to know that Brazil have a gem of a striker in their team The case with Fiete-Arp is no different The17-year-old forward has been on the scoresheet against Costa Rica Guinea and Colombia One of the most deadliest strikers out there his Harry Kane-like overall involvement in the team’s build-up to a goal puts him slightly ahead of the Brazilian duo "We try to get everyone involved in the attack which is one of the reasons why he (Fiete-Arp) is playing well" Zimmerman said Germany as a team have created tons of chances but the finishing has been a concern while the Carlos Amadeu-led Brazil have scored nine times same as the Germans but have conceded just one in comparison to Germany’s six “We have created some 80-90 chances but got only a handful of goals (nine in four games) We need to show quality on the pitch and have worked on that In a World Cup you need to get the best out of the players on the pitch We didn’t do that against Iran but made changes to our defence and did well after that” Zimmerman added "Brazil against Germany is a world classic across all ages This is because both teams try to play attacking football and not sit back Mostly you have great games when you see Brazil against Germany”said Amadeu One thing is certain that in this all-out-attack battle between two footballing superpowers the striker who makes the most of his chances will carry his team to the semi-finals The Vivekananda Yuba Bharti Krirangan is all set to watch the attacking superstars of tomorrow Over to you Feite-Arp Lincoln and Brenner Preview: India will look to begin their campaign on a positive note when they take on World No 2 Argentina in the opening game of the 27th Sultan Azlan Shah Cup hockey on Saturday The Sardar Singh-led team put up a fight against World No 1 Australia before going down 1-2 in a warm-up game Though the team lost with vice-captain Ramandeep Singh scoring India’s lone goal chief coach Sjoerd Marijne was optimistic File image of Sardar Singh Reuters "We played three quarters against Australia to adjust to the humidity I was happy with a lot of things For the first match together with this new combination we put a good performance and we will use this to prepare for the opening game against Argentina" India last played against Argentina in the World League Final in Bhubaneswar where the hosts lost a place in the title-round after losing 0-1 "Like I have said in the past I don’t consider that result as the playing conditions were not normal We played in incessant rain and the only thing we learnt from that match against Argentina is that they were better in such conditions" stated Marijne Olympic champions Argentina meanwhile are in the city without the services of their celebrated coach Carlos Retegui who has resigned from the top job It was under the tutelage of Retegui that Argentina had won their only Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in 2008 beating India 2-1 in the final Though it will be interesting to see how the side does in the absence of Retegui the squad remains strong with Gonzalo Peillat Lucas Rossi Juan Manuel Vivaldi Pedro Ibarra Matias Paredas It is interesting to note that under Sardar’s captaincy the Indian team has never returned home from Sultan Azlan Shah without a medal In 2008 he captained the team to a silver medal and in 2015 and 2016 he led them to a bronze and silver respectively But this time in the absence of key players Akashdeep Singh SV Sunil Mandeep Singh in the forward line Manpreet Singh in the midfield goalkeeper PR Sreejesh and dragflick specialists Rupinder Pal Singh and Harmanpreet Singh who are rested Sardar will have to ensure his younger counterparts shake off the initial nervousness and stick to a structured game chalked out by the coach "While a winning start is what we look for it’s important for the team to execute the structure we want to play in There is no room for error when you play a team like Argentina and we cannot let their ‘Olympic champions’ tag intimidate us I am hopeful we will stitch together a good performance" stated the 31-year-old skipper "The practice match against Australia has given the first-timers an insight into what they can expect and I am sure they will take that confidence into the opening game as well" India’s second match on Sunday will be against England who have retained 10 players from the squad that won the title last year But for now Sardar and his team’s focus is on Saturday’s match "We want to take it one match at a time and for now our focus is on doing well against Argentina" Singh signed off With inputs from PTI That Xi Jinping is the most powerful leader of China since Mao Zedong has often been claimed by China-watchers Beijing’s latest move to remove presidential term limits on Xi has just confirmed these speculations On Sunday China’s ruling Communist Party proposed to remove presidential term limits from the Constitution potentially allowing Xi to continue in power after his second term which ends in 2023 Currently the Chinese constitution which has been in effect since 1982 prohibits more than two terms for the president and the vice-president Since 1992 the president has also held the position of the General Secretary of the Communist Party of China The removal of term limits an issue which was taken up during the third plenary of the 19th Congress is likely to be given approval by the rubber-stamp Congress on 5 March If one goes by the editorials and op-eds in several publications Xi’s consolidation of power has been met with caution as well as fear of a possible "Chinese hegemony" Xi has already been given the title of "Emperor Xi" by the global media This is probably an acceptance of the long-held belief that the US under Donald Trump is losing its global prominence to China Given China’s geo-political ambitions in the Indo-Pacific region articles coming out of this region have been critical and at the same time cautious of Xi’s ambitions The Strait Times a Singapore-based newspaper wrote that Xi is here to stay and that China under him is likely to consolidate its influence in the East and South East Asia An editorial in Manila Times said that Xi rise will have repercussions on the Philippines and the larger South East Asia The editorial said that a "life-long" Xi presidency will have positive as well as negative impact on the country While the positive impact will be in the economic spheres the editorial added "The bad news is that China will surely continue its military build-up and domination of the South China Sea"It is important to know Philippines and China are currently locked in a territorial dispute over Spartly Islands File image of Chinese President Xi Jinping AP A little further north Japan’s English-language daily Japan Times said that Xi’s possible "coronation" will be China’s embrace of "the strongman model" While urging Japan to be ready to deal with an assertive China where power will be centralised under Xi the editorial added that the plan to end presidential term limits is a major reversal of trend which was initiated by Deng Xiaoping Thailand’s Bangkok Post carried an opinion piece which warned that Xi’s possible bid to become "president for life" could end up stagnating China like in the case of Soviet Union under Leonid Brezhnev The op-ed linked Xi’s childhood struggle under Maoism for his push to consolidate political power Towards Thailand’s south east Australia is already reeling under allegations of turning into a client state In such a circumstance an op-ed in The Sydney Morning Herald claimed that Xi’s coronation will "entrench China’s hi-tech authoritarianism" Western media denounces ‘individualistic’ power centre China’s rise as a global power has come at the time of West’s perpetual decline Xi’s rise to absolute power Time said should worry the world The magazine which in October last year called Xi the most powerful man in the world said that the rise of "one man rule" after a gap of three decades may bring back disasters like the Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revolution in the 21st Century The New York Times editorial board took a hardline stand against Xi saying that by opting for "one-man rule" made political transitions in China more unpredictable "The system Xi has created also makes it less likely he will receive sound policy advice or be challenged on decisions in ways that could avoid mistakes That’s because he solidified his power base during the first term by waging an aggressive campaign against corruption and dissent" the editorial said on Xi’s ruthless campaign against dissent The Guardian claimed that the Chinese leadership is stong but may not be stable Alluding to the chaotic Maoist era its editorial said that repression may rise in the short run but in the long run "personalised leadership" may not ensure stability "Xi’s opponents see few checks on him now and cannot expect to simply wait him out And he has personalised his rule to an extent he may regret if the economy or foreign policy goes badly awry" the editorial noted Deutsche Welle the Germany-based English newspaper said that Xi is on course to be "tomorrow’s dictator" "The world must now come to terms with China’s most powerful leader in decades and one who may be present for decades to come an op-ed in the publication said The western media"s focus on the perils of "individualistic rule" mirrored closely with the official US statement that "strong institutions are more important than individual leaders" What it means for India and neighbourhood But back home in India too Xi’s rise as the undisputed leader of the world’s second largest economy has its implications In an editorial which in essence backs The Guardian’s view The Indian Express said that Xi’s consolidation of power highlights the "structural weakness" in the Chinese communist party The editorial also had a word of caution for India "For India which had to deal with an aggressive China in Doklam and manoeuvre against its rising influence in South Asia the lack of checks and balances on Xi is a worrying sign" Urging India to co-ordinate more with Japan us and western democracies The Times of India editorial noted that India will need to abandon its "non-aligned template" to check China’s rise in the Indian Subcontinent "Perhaps China finds large democracies like India threatening and in need of restraint while semi-autocracies like Pakistan look more manageable" the editorial said while criticising Xi’s move to discard institutionalised leadership in China China comes to Xi’s defence Nevertheless China’s State-run media backed the scrapping of term limits adding that it is needed to bring stability to the political system Rejecting reports of Xi becoming "president for life" Global Times said in its editorial "The change (in the constitution) doesn’t mean that the Chinese president will have a lifelong tenure" adding that the removal of the two-term limit for the president will help maintain the trinity system and improve the institution of leadership of the CPC and the nation By trinity system the publication meant General Secretary of the Central Committee President of the People’s Republic of China and the Chairman of the CPC Central Military Commission With inputs from agencies You know its a different kind of war when the Pentagon spends several minutes running down a listby name occupation and date of demiseof 10 Islamic State leaders it says it has killed over the past three weeks They ranged from four "external operations" planners to the "emir of Kirkuk Province" to an "IED cell facilitator" Army Colonel Steve Warren told Pentagon reporters Tuesday during a video briefing from Baghdad The enemy KIA also included the "deputy financial emir in Mosul" a "forgery specialist" and an "executioner" The most noteworthy name was that of Charaffe al Mouadan who Warren said had a "direct link" to the ISIS members who carried out the attacks in Paris Nov 13 killing 130 An air strike killed Mouadan 27 in Syria Dec 24 Military leaders have rattled off such rosters before but never one so long and detailed It stands in stark contrast to the dearth of information the Pentagon provided on the number of ISIS fighters killed as Iraqi forces drove them out of Ramadi this week seven months after occupying it ISIS forces in the capital of Iraqs Anbar province peaked at close to 1000 the Pentagon estimates but shrank to 300 or so as the final battle for control of the city began a month ago Since then US-led air strikes have killed at least 100 more The information mismatch between the deaths of leaders and the led highlights the differences between conventional warfarewhere body counts countand the war on ISIS where the usual yardsticks of progress often dont apply Its like waging war in a fun-house mirror distorting what can be seen and therefore what can be known The US military has debated the wisdom of targeting terrorist leaders as an efficient way of waging war since 9/11 "History is replete with examples of nations interpreting targeted killing as a panacea for winning in war" said one study critical of the strategy Killing such leaders can give rise to even more brutal terrorists who replace them some argue "The concern that a successor to the slain leader may prove even more dangerous than his predecessor becomes a moot point" a second military officer wrote "if we are prepared to continue eliminating successive layers of command" Thats the path the Pentagon is now following Picking off individual leaderswhose names are unknown to all but a handful of Americansshows how important the US believes decapitating ISIS is to eventual success against the jihadists "Any organization that sees its middle and upper management degraded in this way is going to lose some of their synergy" Warren said "It’s difficult to command and control an organization without the command and control personnel" Yet the flip side is also true: a handful of terrorists carrying out a strike anywhere outside ISISs self-declared caliphate instantly becomes the focus of the worlds media magnifying and yes exaggerating ISISs strength and the actual threat it poses to the average Westerner But that certainly doesnt minimize the danger "All of these terrorists had eventual designs on attacking the United States" Warren said "It is important that people understand that as long as those external attack planners are operating the United States military will hunt them and we will kill them" Read Next: Fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan Echoes the 30 Years War Write to Mark Thompson at mark_thompson@timemagazinecom who oversees all of the TED conferences today and acts as the
