    Somehow Belgium ranked #3 in the world loses to Slovakia who is ranked #48.

    Belgium must have some great friendlies because they never do anything when it actually counts....

    FIFA rankings mean nothing!

    Poor Romelu Lukaku!

    France looked beatable.....

    upload_2024-6-17_16-47-49.png


    Why didn't France sub in 38-year-old AC Milan-LAFC forward, Olivier Giroud?

    I mean I know he is old but for 30 minutes, he could have played and at only 1-0, they could have easily tried to get an insurance goal.....

    Is he injured?

    I saw the game. Portugal got really lucky, because in the last minute the ref ignored a clear foul by a Portugal defender against Czechia in their attacking zone which led directly to the winning goal.

    OK so Croatia came back against Albania who eventually tied it up 2-2.

    https://www.google.com/search?q=cro...rp#sie=m;/g/11l77jp_zp;2;/m/01l10v;dt;fp;1;;;

    Modric is way too old to be playing at the international level.

    Croatia had spurts of brilliance but are still too old for the Euro.

    These tournaments are geared for young men and they have 5 starters over 30, two at 29 and one at 28.

    GK Dominik Livaković (29)

    Josip Juranović (28)

    Josip Šutalo ( 24)

    Joško Gvardiol ( 22)

    Ivan Perišić (aged 35)

    Luka Modrić (aged 38)

    Mateo Kovačić (aged 30)

    Lovro Majer (age 26)

    Marcelo Brozović (aged 31)

    Bruno Petković (aged 29)

    Andrej Kramarić (aged 33)

    Ther average age is 29.54 and even leaving out the GK, they are still 29.6 years of age.

    Not even most clubs have players this old starting.

    They need younger men already!

    Portugal with an average age of 32 are way too old as well and have seven players over 30.

    GK Rui Patrício (aged 36)

    Raphaël Adelino José Guerreiro (age 30)

    Pepe (aged 41)

    Nélson Semedo (aged 30)


    Rúben Dias (aged 27)

    William Silva de Carvalho (age 32)


    Bruno Fernandes (aged 29)

    Danilo Pereira (aged 32)

    Bernardo Silva (aged 29)

    Diogo Jota (aged 27)

    Cristiano Ronaldo (aged 39)

    Pepe & CR7 are exceptions and freaks of nature but it remains to be seen if they will win it all.

    Xherdan Shaqiri of the Chicago Fire scored a nice goal for the Swiss team!

    Not sure why they took him out?

    IMO the referee gave Portugal the game. There was a clear, hard foul on a Czech player (actually probably a yellow-card - hand to the face) in the attacking third right before the winning goal was scored that was totally waved off by the referee.

    When I stayed in Rome, my hotel was on the road at top of the hill, a half block to the right.

    That is Piazza di Spagna.

    I think they put the Azzurro (Blue) shirt there because of the Spaniards staying at the Spanish Embassy on the right....
