Look, to be fair... Trinidad and Tobago? They used to be the "joke" team in FIFA games if you wanted to practice with oddball tactics or something and wanted to be sure you'd win despite fielding 10 goal keepers and one defender.
I mean, I know the USA isn't France or Germany, but if you can't beat T&T, sheesh.
I'm a bit sad the Belgians only got 4 goals yesterday - our fifth one was ruled off side though it wasn't (it was a close call, though, and in the situation I can't really blame the line man). If we'd made that fifth one we'd've had the world record for most goals in a qualifier round. Now...well, we still have it, but we have to share with Germany. Pfuih.
Nice idea - but let's be honest based on the attitude of many Russian football fans if FIFA are serious about this the question isn't "will any matches get abandoned?" it's "will any matches NOT get abandoned?"
I'm going to predict a 1-0 Belgium win, but we draw against Panama while you win both other matches, giving us 7 points and you 6. We both go on, but you get knocked out in the second round and we in the quarter finals.[DOUBLEPOST=1512147326,1512147257][/DOUBLEPOST]
Well, the World Cup is just around the corner, so the quadrennial tradition of English self-deprecation about how badly they're going to do has started again. The "official" English World Cup song is called Three Lions, and it's actually quite a catchy song. But now someone's rewritten it to become Three Lions Cursed, and put it to a video of all the worst moments in English footballing history.
I'll tell you what, I'm not even English and even I felt some pain watching this thing.
Man City win the Carabao Cup 4-3 on pens. Main story though is that the Chelsea keeper outright refuses to be subbed at the end of the game while suffering from cramp and with the substitute keeper specialising in penalties.
Sarri now almost certain to be sacked as Chelsea manager & interesting to see if Arizzabalaga ever plays for Chelsea again or what retrospective action the FA take if any.
Fucking shambolic. You don't disrespect your manager like that. When the manager makes a call to sub you off, you fucking go off. If you disagree with the decision, you can plead your case after the match, behind closed doors. But ultimately the decision is the manager's, and there can be no questioning that. To humiliate your manager and your club like that in front if millions of viewers is so unprofessional it's mind-boggling.
If I were Sarri I'd've resigned on the spot. Screw the payoff from being sacked, my integrity is worth more than that.
