If we play as uninspired as we did against Moldova in the last game, Finland could easily cause an upset.

Just saw Germany's new kits for 11/13....really like them, we've had some great kits the last few years.

Has a real retro feel to it IMO

Belgium vs. Turkey is a really good match so far. Players seem to share a strong dislike, and the attacking play isn't really lacking. Turan is tearing it up.

Georgia couldn't hold on to the lead v. Croatia.
Crap.
Woulda been a huge help.



Those German kits posted above are awesome.

Belgium/Turkey ends 1-1. Really great match. Mertens came in for Hazard at the hour mark and had a great impact on the game, he won a penalty...and then Witsel put that over the bar.

I preferred the black one.

On other news, Italy with a solid performance, Balzaretti and Rossi looked very solid.

nail biter versus Georgia for Croatia. Georgia literally scored on their only chance, and it was from a cross where a guy sandwiched between Corluka and Srna somehow won a header into the net. Croatia dominated the rest of the match, hitting the post three times before scoring twice in a span of two minutes. It still wasn't a good performance, but its hard to play against an opponent defending with 10 men in their own 16 yard area

Greece will win tomorrow, but I'm still hoping they slip up against Israel or Georgia away, but judging by the way Croatia played today and really since Euro 2008, its far from a guarantee we will beat Israel at home or get a good result in Athens. The problem in this group is so far every team has bunkered against Croatia and we don't have quality wingers or the speed to effectively break these teams down.

The black one was nice. Green has been worn a lot in previous eras by German teams as an away shirt, it's paying tribute to the 1972 Euro winning team IIRC which I suppose is appropriate if they do indeed wear it for the first time in the Euro's next year

Yeah, I've got the black WC one with Ozil and Muller.

My aunt or uncle in Germany probably will send me one of the new kit. Probably will get the green. Not sure for who. Maybe Gotze.

Parker has not been good enough for this level, unconcentrated passing, not enough strength, tackling or running, not covering opponents well enough and generally poor off the ball movement. Whatever his role is supposed to be, it's not much of a benefit for the team.

England need improvement on their midfield play.

Ah fair enough, I really like the black as well, I reckon they will go back to black after the Euro's at some point

they sold them like hot cakes (they were back ordered in most places for 3 or 4 months) so I think they will. but the throw back is nice.


As for Parker, Spurs can have him. He's dreadful in this match.

I am fine with Baines and Young though. But I doubt either one ends up with Liverpool.

congrats to Switzerland, it might be too late for them but they got some talented young players like Shaqiri and Mehmedi

Russia beat Armenia 3:1 and take control of Group B for now which is certainly one of the more open groups

If you see the line up of Switzerland, you see how young they are.

Benaglio (27)

Lichtsteiner (27) | Senderos (26) | Djourou (24) | Ziegler (25)

Behrami (26) | Inler (26)

Shaqiri (29) | G.Xhaka (18) | Barnetta (26)

Derdiyok (22)


Substitutes: Dzemaili (25), Mehmedi (20), Emeghara (22)

Ziegler just signed a contract with Juventus, Inler and Lichtsteiner are also on the list of Juventus Benaglio apparently is close to Arsenal, and you still have very talented players like Shaqiri or Xhaka playing in the Swiss league. It will be interesting to watch, how they will develop in the future.

Oranje looking strong in their friendly vs Brazil so far. Should've scored one.

New kid Strootman not looking out of place at all and Afellay is doing well to make me forget Sneijder isn't here.

Last time they played in this stadium (1999) there were 5 red cards

Ian Darke is possibly the best voice in soccer.

USA - Spain to start in a few.
