Fabio Cannavaro was nicknamed “The Berlin Wall” after showcasing a masterclass in defending in the 2006 World Cup leading his nation to their 4th World Cup title. He truly earned his nickname by being a defensive rock for Italy playing in every minute of the competition for his nation, winning an impressive 16 challenges and keeping 5 out of 7 clean sheets only conceding two goals in the process. His defensive display at the World Cup earned him the Ballon D`Or that year making him the third defender in history to win the award after Franz Beckenbauer and Mathias Sammer.

African Cup of Nations API

It will be interesting to see which striker option Brazil's Head Coach will use for the upcoming Copa America 2024. Brazil have limited options in their striker position. Richarlison, Gabriel Jesus and Matheus Cunha are the only recognized strikers in the Brazil Squad and none of them have been able to find the back of the net for the national team since the World Cup last December. Brazil have used the 4-2-3-1 formation in most of their recent matches and it will be interesting to see who gets the lone center forward role in their Copa America 2024 campaign. Rodrygo has been used as a makeshift striker to fill the striker role from time to time, however his best position is in the left or right wing. Our Copa America API will give your users important line up information like who makes it to the starting 11 and who makes it to the bench, player jersey number and substitutions made as the match goes on.

Portugal have maintained a 100% win record in their journey to Euro 2024 qualification. Having played 6 games, they have scored 24 goals and conceded 0 in the process. With four more games to go, they are increasingly likely to be among the first teams to qualify for Euro 2024. Portugal have won the European Championship once in 2016 and are positioning themselves to be major contenders for the title. Having the experience of Roberto Martinez as their recently appointed Head Coach has definitely helped them have a flawless run to qualification. A fully fit Portuguese squad can rival any team in Europe as they are fully stacked with quality in all areas of the pitch. Our Euro 2024 API is easy to implement and comes with a developer friendly JSON and XML responses filled with your requested data for quick live score and other match updates.
