    Figured we should get this kicked off with qualifying starting soon.

    Speaking of which, holy fuck have they made that process as convoluted as possible.

    1-0 England. Sancho assists Sterling. Nice through ball by Kane to set it up.

    I'm not sure if I'm more disgusted by myself for enjoying the Raheem goal or enjoying Southgate

    Is Navas Spain’s starting RB out of necessity?

    Professional services/consulting. Stuff is definitely expensive but salaries are fairly high (compared to Canada). Subsidized lunch at work helps the food cost too.

    The ticket application portal opened today- has anyone used that in the past? Any feedback on going that route?

    We applied for a few games in 2016, in Lens and Lyon, IIRC. Didn't get anything in the first few rounds of the lottery, so we changed our travel plans to include Bruges instead of Lyon. Three days after we finalized our lodging in Bruges (and Canterbury) the ticket portal told us "congratulations, you're the proud owners of four tickets to Portugal-Hungary in Lyon." We sold the tickets on their exchange for face value, so it wasn't any cost to us. Unfortunately, we missed out on the most exciting match of the tournament, one that Portugal needed to tie to advance, and Ronaldo scored two to get the 3-3 tie.

    In years past the ticket lottery has favored home fans, or fans of the particular teams playing, but I don't know how they're doing it this time around since the matches are being played all over the continent. Just to cover our bases, wife has contacted her distant family members who live outside Munich to help us get tickets for the games to be played at Allianz Arena. (and we applied for a shitload of venues today)

    I like majority of that U21 team. I’m hoping he sprinkles quite a bit of them into the senior squad

    He has to this point. He played Kean and Zanolio when Juve and Roma wouldn’t.

    Germany steal it late.

    Amateur hour on that Romanian wall. Looked like the guy moved his leg out of the way to let the ball through.

    Just looking at the Germany, Spain and France lineups makes me realize how far behind the USA and Chile are now. They are loaded with talent that’s already starting at the major European leagues.

    Spain is just too good but they also brought everybody. This would be a different story if France had Mbappe and Dembele.
