    Annoying for Leno. That might be his chances gone.

    2-1 Germany at HT thanks to Draxler's penalty.

    Germany and Spain have such ridiculous depth at most age groups.

    I'd be confident that either nation could put out a more than decent 4th string senior side and still be competitive.

    They have by far the largest number of coaches with badges in Europe, and it shows.

    RIP Leno :lol: :lol: :lol:

    He won't recover from that (against his competitors).

    The Spanish guy doing the commentary for the Mexico Portugal match on FS1 yesterday was so annoying. Worst commentary I've ever heard. Why do people from USA do football commentary? US networks should get British pundits and commentators for all international events.

    How is that not a handball? I love VAR and all but surely that should have been a handball?

    He's actively expanding his body size with his arm?

    Only because of this current crop of late 90's born players. That had a period where their old guard players were still being picked up as far as 2010.

    They've brought through a good new generation now.

    He is average at being a (very) good keeper. But he doesn't stand out between Ter Stegen and Trapp. They're all around the same level. Today was a very bad day for him though, that's blatantly obvious! But on a normal day he concedes neither of these.

    Nah, he's definitely worse than both. Fährmann and Horn are better as well.

    He is a competent goalkeeper but he is rated very highly by a lot on here who wanted us to replace ddg with him. He has always seemed error prone. I remember united played Leverkusen in CL during the moyes season and he didn't look that great then. Even had a few mistakes in those 2 ties iirc

    At some point Löw went into ultra-defensive mode, switching Wagner, Stindl and Brandt for Süle, Can and Werner....those substitutions killed the game cause Germany stopped trying to do anything and Australia was not good enough to capitalize.

    Can is like the perfect Liverpool player. Has speed and strength but 0 awareness on the ball.

    Oh yeah, one of my favorite low profile players too. Gladbach has/had several players of that kind: Stindl, Raffael (best of the lot), Kruse, Sommer.

    Manchester Utd never lose, just run out of time
    We (Australia) are nowhere near as good as we once were. 10 years ago our entire team was playing in the Premier League and Serie A, and in many cases were the best players in many of their teams. The likes of Kewell, Viduka, Cahill, Schwarzer, Bresciano, Grella, Bosnich, Emerton, Neill, etc. We could take on the best teams in the world and give them a fright. If it weren't for a debatable penalty in the last minute, we probably would have beaten Italy in extra-time in the 2006 world cup. As it were they went on to win the tournament.

    Unfortunately since that 'golden generation', nobody else of that quality has come through. Cahill is the last remaining but at 37 is just a super-sub now. We do have some decent players like Rogic and Mooy, but it's a long drop from where we were. We're struggling in the Asian WC qualifiers to even get one of the automatic qualifying spots. Sucks, but hopefully another generation will come through in the not too distant future.

    Two things...

    First, an observation - I don't understand how the second goal wasn't a handball/illegal play. The attacking player clearly gained an advantage by playing the ball off his arm. VAR failed, IMO.

    Second, a question for the resident Aussies - why are the kits gold and green when the flag is blue, red, and white?

    I just saw the highlights with that commentary, can't believe they have Jorge Perez Navarro doing the commentary, he's cringey and annoying in Spanish... in English he's twice as bad.

    game in this country has gone backwards with the cronies that run it ...elite level football here is non competitive up until the age of 18...right there shows how political correct this country has gone in terms of making sure everyone is a winner (and pays a small fortune to play ) and that the national teams suffer - to think we had more players in the European leagues 10 years ago then we do now is laughable , but hey as long as those big chqs comes in from youth football lifes good

    Green and gold are our national colours. Similar to how the Kiwis wear black, to differentiate ourselves I guess.

    The handball rules are very vague and open to interpretation. "Deliberate actions" and all that.

    Fonte was terrible last match but I'd still rather have a terrible Fonte than Bruno Alves. The rest of the team is spot on. Mendes is probably distracted with all the tax cases so he forgot to tell Santos who should start.

    I really hope he plays a great match tonight. He needs to hold his spot now
