    Do you think that we're getting these friendlies with south American teams because of the copa America next year? Given that we are one of the hosts and will face a majority of them given by the tournament structure, I think that our coach may be preparing us mentally.

    According to Queiroz during his press conference we are looking to play in Europe the next FIFA date.
    Not sure who is available due to all the aforementioned Euro Qualifiers.
    We may have to play something like the Vasco or Catalunia non official friendlies. I would not mind that.

    uhm no Thank You. Not ever impressed with these matches. I can understand the value, somewhat, of meeting in Europe but much rather we play a Euro NT who isnt scheduled to play Euro Qualifiers or NL. Takes some effort and homework....somehow Uruguay has already booked a match vs Hungary. Or we can have an Asian/African team meet us in Europe. Otherwise, let them just meet and discuss strategy.

    Yes, my Sunday league play can match up for at least the first 5 minutes. We'll all just go thru Tesillo's side :D

    I agree it could be an African team or Asian team.
    I just personally don't mind the Spanish provincial games. Venezuela played the Catalans in an entertaining match recently..

    Unlikely. Africa and Asia are also going through their regional tournament qualifiers, as some of the Concacaf minions too. It really sucks that we're so low on options during this time of the cycle and that Europe has insulated themselves with the stupid Nations league. All in all, for most of this FIFA dates, there are probably 20 teams available in the whole world, and half of them happen to be in Conmebol.

    yeah.. weird story, I've never heard of it.

    With our infrastructure, (stadiums, roads, airports, etc), we don't stand a chance.

    Well, also Russia wasn't the paragon of road ionfrastructure, but at least we had free trains everywhere

    So in 11 years you don’t think we would get better versions of all of that?

    If they only steal around 35% of the money instead of the usual 90% then we have a shot.

    It was actually her father. He was a customs official and was getting a lot of coimas/bribes. The good for nothing daughter was boasting a lot of money on IG, thats were the investigation started.

    Imagine this: The girl had a ********ing Lambo, do you know how much money the father siphoned over customs?. It is ********ing disgraceful. The guy worked at the customs and tax agency.. the same fuyckers that squeeze the money from all of us.

    This country is pathetic... it is not only at the top, most of the regular people is corrupt too, that is way we are were we are.

    So the idea is ilussive

    Nah.. I don't think racism has anything to do here. It was the fact that she boasted a lot of ill gotten gains, the fact that she was the one who got the attention of authorities, not her father who was operating very quietly...

    The fact that she was riding a lambo , boasting about travels to paris etc.. while being a daughter of a low level customs official.

    By the way, that shitstorm has already over.. it was about 2 weeks of news then nothing afterwards.
