利茲。泰勒-亞當斯在世界盃上的表現令人印象深刻

不需要統計學上的炸彈爆炸就能發現,泰勒-亞當斯在2022年世界盃上有一個令人印象深刻的開局。像@lufcdata這樣的網站有用的信息是,當美國隊與威爾士隊1-1戰平時,亞當斯贏得了更多的攻勢(5次),並且比迄今為止在卡塔爾的任何其他單一球員覆蓋了更多的距離(13.13公里)。僅憑肉眼就能告訴你他無處不在。

"質量 "和 "場上最佳球員 "是事後對他表現的評論語氣,但無法衡量的是無形的東西--這位無畏和不可抗拒的美國隊長不僅對他的隊友,而且在場外也有影響。

這是一個喜歡攻堅戰並願意承擔起領導責任的球員。在最有爭議的世界盃主辦權之前的一周,23歲的亞當斯熱衷於告訴BBC利茲電台,球員們在理解他們在卡塔爾可能被問及的問題方面有多麼投入。

他告訴我:"我們知道有很多事情發生,我們想專注於我們的足球,"。

"我們沒有選擇在那裡舉辦世界盃,但我們仍然想了解正在發生的事情。'你們為什麼選擇這個酒店,它的建造方式是否正確?這類細節。

"我們甚至收到了一份關於在卡塔爾應該做的手勢、不應該做的事情以及應該如何穿着的介紹。"

一旦到了多哈,亞當斯和他的隊友們就邀請移民工人和他們一起訓練。

"我們對自己的理解非常有信心,"他說。

"美國足球的工作很好,確保我們受到了教育。"

亞當斯身上也有一絲傑克-格里利什的影子。這位英格蘭球員的 "蛇臂 "慶祝活動的病毒視頻,履行了他對年輕支持者芬利-費舍爾的承諾,感動了世界各地的人們。幾個月前,亞當斯在利茲市的一個貧困地區參加了一個免費的足球教練活動,在與他交談時,他敏銳地意識到自己作為一個職業球員的角色。

"他告訴我:"對我來說,在比賽之外產生影響比在比賽中產生影響更重要。

"我無法想象一個職業足球運動員會給我機會去踢球,去和他們一起玩。只要看到這些孩子臉上的笑容就是無價的。"

繼續進行比較,亞當斯可能會在周五晚上英格蘭隊對陣美國隊時,遇到他在埃蘭路有效取代的人,即當地英雄卡爾文-菲利普斯。這兩名球員都完全致力於他們的比賽和改善他們所接觸到的人的生活的風格。


It does not take a bomb of statistics to explode to reveal that Tyler Adams has made an impressive start to the 2022 World Cup. Sites like @lufcdata usefully inform that by the time USA had drawn 1-1 with Wales Adams had won more tackles (5) and covered a greater distance (13.13km) than any other single player so far in Qatar. The naked eye alone will tell you he was everywhere.

"Quality" and "best player on the field" were the tone of the reviews of his performance afterwards but what cannot be measured are the intangibles - the influence the fearless and irrepressible USA captain has not only on his team-mates but also off the pitch.

This is a player who loves a tackle and is willing to take on the responsibility of leadership. In the week before the most controversial hosting of a World Cup Adams, 23, was keen to tell BBC Radio Leeds how invested the players are in understanding the issues they may be asked about in Qatar.

"We know there's a lot going on, we want to focus on our football," he told me.

"We didn't choose to have the World Cup there, but we still want to be educated on what's happening. 'Why did you guys pick this hotel, was it built the right way?' These sort of details.

"We even received a presentation on gestures you should make in Qatar, things you shouldn't do and how you should dress."

Once in Doha Adams and his team-mates invited migrant workers to train with them.

"We're very confident of our understanding of what is happening," he said.

"It's been a great job from US Soccer to make sure we're educated."

There is a touch of the Jack Grealish about Adams too. The viral video of the England player's 'snake arms' celebration fulfilling his promise to young supporter Finlay Fisher has touched hearts everywhere. Speaking to Adams as he took part in a free football coaching event in a deprived part of Leeds a few months ago he is acutely aware of his role as a professional.

"For me having an impact outside the game is more important than having an impact on the game," he told me.

"I couldn’t have imagined a professional footballer giving me the opportunity to play and come hang out with them. Just seeing the smiles on these kids' faces is priceless."

Continuing to draw comparisons Adams may come up against the man he effectively replaced at Elland Road in local hero Kalvin Phillips when England face the USA on Friday night. Both players are fully committed in style to their games and to improving the lives of those they come into contact with.
