    Im not talking about Serie A. Im talking about the national team. As long as I can remember the tactics have had a far more defensive approach than any other country with their capacity. This isnt a new thing with Ventura. The list of coaches that practice the same kind of playing style is endless. Trappatoni being the worst imo.

    Sure we're weak but anything can happen in football and that's the magic of it. Now it's up to us to take advantage of that chance and if we win it's cause we worked hard and deserved it.

    Once the cup gets expanded and we're basically given a spot, then I'll start complaining about weak teams making it.



    Fun fact Italy was the other team in our group that failed to advance.

    Despite qualifying for the WC today, the future of Ange Postecoglu is in doubt and the decision will be made in the next few days. If he goes, he will be the third manager to leave his post despite qualifying for the tournament (Saudi Arabia and Serbia sacked their managers)

    From a Danish point of view, I hope NZ wins tonight. It will put us among the second seeded teams. If Peru wins, we are in the third layer.

    Oh goodness are the ****ty pitches too ****ty for witty baby's foosties. Maybe if they didn't want to play third world countries they shouldn't have colonised one

    Literally nothing in this post makes any sense. If the third world hadn't been colonized nobody would have to play them in international soccer? I don't even know what to say.

    They're only "third world" in relation to and on account of the colonizers in the first place.

    I don't want to get into a political discussion on this board but the idea that the problems of the third world are entirely due to colonization is just not true.

    DM had a corbin avi for a while. One has to expect some silly leftist hyperbole from him on the topic.

    Peru start the match 100 MPH as expected, hit the crossbar within the opening 2 minutes

    I'm a pot-smoking bisexual who's in a 2 year relationship with a black woman, and still find Corbin just hilariously helpless.

    Peru finally break through before the half hour mark, they got Reid isolated in the box and a pass found Farfan who fired into the top of the net. They caught New Zealand with fewer numbers back and took advantage

    New Zealand aren't too impressive to me for a team that has to score.

    This is a really weird year concerning the World Cup. I've been going through some of teams and never in my mind did I ever think that Italy, Netherlands, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Chile, Ghana, and Cote d'Ivoire would miss the World Cup, let alone in the same year.

    Super excited for this tournament as usual. Here's how I see the contenders breaking down:

    Tier 1: Germany, France, Brazil, Spain, Argentina

    Tier 2: Belgium, Portugal, Colombia, Uruguay, Poland, England

    Don't see anyone else as much of a threat - maybe Croatia or Mexico.

    Weird to have a tournament without teams like Italy, Netherlands or Chile.
