International Football Game Day Thread (2013)

MODS: Please move to proper thread as you see fit. Couldn't find an international thread.

With all the International matches on tap today I figure I'd get a thread rolling.

I will be watching a few matches.

Ireland - Poland
England - Brazil
USA later tonight

Sweden - Argentina is going to be great. In the last two games, Sweden made 0 - 4 too 4 - 4 against Germany, and Zlatan humiliated England. Lets hope they keep that form up and defeat Argentina.

Spain off to a 1-0 lead thanks to Fabregas. Horrible mistake by the keeper.

Croatia - Korea was an interesting game in the first half, both sides created chances but Croatia was more clinical. In the 2nd half both sides made numerous changes which slowed the tempo but Croatia dominated to score two more goals. Korea were full of energy but lacked the technical ability compared to Croatia. Croatia attacking wise were great and were pressing the Koreans like crazy which is good to see in a friendly where Croatia usually half ass it

Even though I can't stand him I must admit Croatia under Stimac is playing better than under Bilic, but we will see when the true tests come up against Serbia and Belgium down the road

I'm DVR'ing the Holland game and will watch it later on tonight. I have absolutely no idea what their squad will look like today, just hoping that Huntelaar will get the start in favour of VanPersie.

Just now tuning in to Uruguay-Spain. Seems like tempers are pretty high.

Huntelaar's out with an eye injury, so there goes that.

Germany playing Höwedes as leftback, that's a new one I think Löw hates him, he never gets any chance on his position.

Germany playing well so far, especially Gündogan who has consistently found holes in midfield.

Belgium leads 1-0 at half time. Hazard scored from penalty early in the match. It's the same as usual. The Red Devils play beautiful, attacking football and put pressure on the opponent. However, they still have a hard time creating chances.

Ribery is tearing Lahm apart.
Ozil is one heck of a player.

Gundogan and Ozil give Germany a fantastic transition game.
1-0 France after that great free kick on the bar.

I'm sorry I'll hear it is a friendly blah blah but Hummels is not a top 5 CB right now with the amount of bad games je has at the CL and international level.

I also thought Germany was better because of that superior transition game. But France defended well and in the end Germany did not have a good shot on goal.
