World Cup

Man, the Italians are going to be looking for things to do next summer. The whole country must be in mourning right now.

First time in my lifetime the Italians won't be in WC. Hard to actually believe it. But, Ventura was a terrible manager and he didn't understand what it takes at the top level. The only thing the guy did was bring a team from Serie B to Serie A.

And the black balling of Gionvinco was a horrible mistake. You can't tell me that he wasn't better and deserved to be there among the 23 players. He would have made a difference. It's completely embarrassing and like the USMNT, they need to start bringing in younger players to rebuild. It really shows how great a job Conte did with this squad at the Euros.

Quite shocking not to have Italy in the World Cup. Just won't be the same. Just hope 'Die Mannschaft' can repeat. Going to be a tough task. Looking forward to next year! 🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪👍👍⚽️⚽️⚽️

Die Mannschaft will deliver as always, you can count on that.

But what about a line up with the likes of Varane, Koscielny, Umtiti, Lemar, Pogba, Kante, Griezmann, Tolisso, Martial, Mbappe, Dembele.....

+1 Have a lot of Peruvian friends and family so it was a big deal. The 35 year drought is over.

France looks super legit. Always interesting to see what will happen to England. The way i sees it there's three teams with a good chance: Germany, Spain, France. After that there's the usually good teams that underperform: England, Argentina, Mexico.

I failed to mention Brazil. That says a lot. Neymar is a great player, i grant you that but apart from him they have a good squad but i don't see a world cup winning team. But it is Brazil so who knows.

Considering how close Marinovic came to stealing that series for the Kiwis, I am really going to enjoy watching him next year here in Vancouver (and our token Peruvian, Reyna, is something special even if he didn't see the pitch against New Zealand).

The Belgian team is actually a great one this time. Hazard, De Bruyne, Lukaku, Mertens, Fellaini, Naingollan and the star names are too many to count. I think they can for sure be contenders. Germany, Spain and France are superb teams and certainly look favourites.
This world cup is going to be amazing!

Time is running out for this group. I think they've underachieved in major tournaments. I do hope they do well. I like a lot of their players.
