Not a huge Brandt fan, surprised he's starting over Draxler
Watch him hit a brace now
Malta v England is on ESPNDeportes
thought he was on.
Likely goal too
Had no idea Josh King was Norwegian
The u-21 and u-19's are stacked with them too.
The word is he and Goretzka have already agreed to terms. Adamantly denied by all parties, of course.
Watching the England match on ESPNDeportes they mentioned that Sterling was born in Jamaica, I had no idea. This then led to a quick Wiki search which revealed that his middle name is Shaquille
Germans deserve to lose this
What a strike.
I'll punch you in the dick
They're probably my 2nd favorite team, just been shit tonight
I know. Have sleepwalked since Timo scored.
Holy shit Mats
That's a great header.
Lovely set piece
Lovely header and dreadful marking, was he off?
Looked slightly off but great ball and better header.
Looking like Algeria and Ghana will both miss the world cup after both being in the last two (and Ghana at least the last 3).
do not envy low going into selecting his starting xi
For me it looks like some of the 2014 winners need to be benched for the youths to me
2 great goals from Isco
What would your lineup be for Germany?
Brandt was by far the worst player on the field vs the Czechs and Werner struggled besides the goal(did have terrible service), old guard don't seem like the issue to me and could really use Boateng back.
Fortunately for Germany they have the best CB depth in the world.
It's sad to say because he's so emblematic of the revolution, but I greatly prefer the German 433 without ozil or with him shunted to the left to a 4231 with him in center.
It's a much more balanced side and puts the onus on kroos in possession which is for the greater good because he's the best cm in the world. Kroos with possession in the center of the park, goretzka a bombimg forward box to box, and either a second bomber (khedira), or a back four protector (Rudy) with them.
Hector and kimmich can both provide service and defend well from the flanks so then you complete the side with scorers and speed up top. Drax, timo, and then figure out of its gonna be sane, Brandt, or god forbid Reus.
Muller can still work since he's a fantastic second striker when on and kimmich covers that flank, but I'm starting to have doubts if he'll ever recover form with limited chances at Bayern. And ozil is the true tragedy. Shunted left and he gets in the way of hector, which means he'll drift inwards and get in the way of Kroos and goretzka.
It's a fascinating puzzle. Hopefully they figure it out and Germany get to play the new Spain and exorcize those demons.
Interested to see how Mbappe, Giroud, and Greizmann all together do.
Is Payet injured or just not in favor anymore?
These Hungarians are dirty as fuck.
Luxembourg ties France 0-0
So France on 17 (+10), Sweden on 16 (+11) and Netherlands on 13 (+5) with 2 to go.
France: Bulgaria (A), Belarus (H)
Sweden: Luxembourg (H), Netherlands (A)
Netherlands: Belarus (A), Sweden (H)
So Sweden has the Goal tiebreaker over the Dutch even if they lose to them by no more than 2?
Assuming they win by equal margin in their other match yes
Waar is dat feestje? Hier is dat feestje!
Belgium is into the 2018 WC
Boateng is 1 of maybe 2-3 CBs in the world that can create chances with 1 great long ball.
Sule looks to be a heck of a defender but Loew went with Ginter over him, Germany doesn't have enough margin of error to be missing him.
Kinda agree with cas/weedlord but Germany did play great in euros last year. They dominated France but Muller was horrendous, Bastian was washed up and had the dumbest mistake of his career, and had no striker. Not sure Ozil has those level of performances in him at this time though, needs to quit being a bitch.
I love the Welsh and Scots, fuck England
Hope Total Football wins out
It's Engloland, thank you
Lovely finish by Ozil
England are the Tennessee of intl football
Lovely goal by Draxler
This sounds promising
Rashford should find the target there.
Dier loves a near post run on corners.
I dont like saying this, but Christian Eriksen is really good at this game. Finally stepping up for Denmark.
