The Real Madrid team lost their first points in Group D of the UEFA Champions League, which sensationally took home at home on Tuesday. 1 – 2 lost to the Tiraspol Sheriff from Moldova. After a short tussle with the defender, FC finally tucked the ball home Sebastienas Thillas and presented the Sheriffs with a historic victory against the 13-time Champions League winners.
Thill, 27, became the first Luxembourg player to score in the Champions League. The leap in his career over the last 12 months is simply unbelievable, as he was still earning while cutting grass last year.
Thill spent most of his career with FC Progres Niederkon from Luxembourg. Playing in a club of this level made it impossible to make a living from football, so S. Thill had to look for extra work. As the footballer himself assured, he was cutting grass in the stadium, where he later trained with his teammates. That way he made extra money. Thill was already 26 at the time and decided he had the last chance to become a professional footballer.
“By 2020 In September, I cut grass at the FC Progres Niederkon club stadium. Then I told myself that after the end of my football career, I wouldn’t want to regret anything, so I started actively looking for opportunities to move to another club. In the end, Tambov became interested in my services, Thill said.
Tambov played in the elite Russian league, but had huge financial problems and took last place. However, Thill managed to show his skills in Russia and thus drew the attention of the Sheriff team.
“When I arrived in Tiraspol, I couldn’t believe what good conditions were created here. “Such infrastructures could be the envy of many clubs from other top European leagues,” said S. Thill.
The defender also assured that although the victory against Real was very sweet, it could not be celebrated for too long: “We got into a very difficult group. Now is not the time to fly in the clouds. We just have to think about the upcoming match and give 100 percent on the pitch. forces. Yes, I scored a great goal, we will celebrate it a bit, but then we will have to continue the work we have started. “
The Sheriff’s club in Group D was called “cannon fodder”, but after 2 rounds with 6 points is the sole leader.
