    It's great to watch. They've hardly broken a sweat these first 15 mins.

    Oyarzabal hacked down in front of the area, no call and Germany nearly scores a few seconds later.

    Deserved yellow for Vallejo for a wild tackle against Waldschmidt.

    Would have liked to have seen

    Richter - Waldschimdt - Oztunali
    Dahoud - Amiri
    Maier/Egge
    Henrichs - Anton - Tah - Klostermann
    Nübel
    With JoJo/Nmecha coming on for Oztunali after 60-ish minutes of leading our press & running like he's never run before. The risk may have been higher but we would have been much better set up to push spain off with our own ball-control & possession and to pressure them.

    It was a very obvious red card.

    What is the point in VAR again?

    The spanish player tried to turn away and he wasn't the last man back. It was a deserved yellow, but a red would've been harsh.

    Players can't go in that high, studs first, with force and go through an opposing player. It is an extremely dangerous challenge. If the German players foot is planted at the time of impact then there is a good chance that does very serious damage.

    Maybe I just wasn't paying enough attention because it didn't look that bad on the first replay :dunno:

    E:
    It is worse than I thought, still would've felt like a red was harsh

    If Dahoud & Amiri had magiced up the equalizer for us there, I would have been too hyped :laugh:

    Olmo is a gem. I hope Milan gets him.

    Really feel for these kids and wish Kuntz had put them in a better position to succeed, but that was a deserved win for Spain.

    How the hell did he end up in Croatia of all places, as much as I can’t stabd them credit to Dinamo in getting him from Barcelona

    His father was pretty savvy. He saw that he wouldn't get enough playing time in Barca and sent him here. They were patient, let him pay his dues in youth club and then gradually promoted him to the 1st team. I wish our "wunderkinds" would do the same, and not run towards money first chance they get, I'm looking at you Alen.

    As for Dinamo's youth school, given their budget and talent pool, better schools are few ad far between. I hope more kids like Olmo follow his example.

    My favourite youth competition, the U19 Euro, is starting today.
    Here is the calendar :

    14 juillet
    - Arménie – Espagne (16h45)
    - Italie – Portugal (19h)

    15 juillet
    - Norvège – Irlande (16h45)
    - République Tchèque – France (19h)

    17 juillet
    - Portugal – Espagne (16h45)
    - Arménie – Italie (19h)

    18 juillet
    - République Tchèque – Norvège (16h45)
    - Irlande – France (19h)

    20 juillet
    - Espagne – Italie (19h)
    - Portugal – Arménie (19h)

    21 juillet
    - France – Norvège (19h)
    - Irlande – République Tchèque (19h)

    Mercredi 24 juillet
    Demi-finales (16h et 19h)

    Samedi 27 juillet
    Finale (18h30)

    I consider this competition as the more telling because many of these players are very close to stardom, but not there yet.

    France will have a decent team, with a few highlights on each line :
    On defense Badiashile, who's now starting for Monaco is a stud.
    In midfield, Claudio Gomes is really good, but Maxence Caqueret has all the making of a class superstar midfielder. If you can catch a game with him playing, focus on him. Passing, tackling, positionning, he has it all.
    Up front, Charles Abi should be the most dangerous french player.

    Also keep an eye on Ferran Torres and Felix Correira.

    I didn't see the official French squad at the UEFA website, is it out yet? Don't know many of the players, but Spain does seem to have some well-known players. Also Inter just agreed to pay 9 Mil € for Eddie Salcedo, interesting to see how he does here for Italy.

    Edit: Ah, I see it's there now.

    LOL, looking at the Norway squad, they have named only two defenders. Either they are trying to fool their opponents or we can expect some extraordinary tactics.

    Norway has one excellent defenseman from City whose name escapes me though. So maybe he's Captain Tsubasa stuff and can do it all by himself :D

    After a clear and easy win against Czech Republic (3-0), France is up against Ireland right now.

    France through after a 1-0 win. They were easily the best team but had trouble scoring that goal.

    3 wins out of 3. Unconvincing 1-0 over Norway with the backups mostly.
    France-Spain and Portugal-Ireland will be the semis. Ireland seems frankly not at the required level. Other 3 can win the tournament.
