    Argentina vs Germany will be a nice watch. It's a shame UEFA Nations League thing diminished the possiblities of these match ups, don't like how UEFA segregates themselves all the time, and its awful for the rest of the world not being able to test themselves vs European nations.

    UEFA has his fair share of blame on this, but this was mainly made to accommodate club's complains about players have to travel to different continents for "useless" friendly games.

    I do think the Nations League was a very good idea, the competition format is very forward looking, but I think this could become a worldwide competition. It has the potential and right format for that to happen.

    Belgium plays San Marino & Kazachstan.
    Can't say I'm particularly looking forward to either of these.

    So, after we smash Northern Ireland's pubteam this Thursday I think it's safe to say we will qualify. There is no way we can feck this up now. I'm not even scared of jinxing it.

    It's that time again were our players go away for international duty and look ten times for their country than for us.

    Don't worry, the vast majority of our players are going to spend the international break at Carrington (except for those who have popped over to Dubai)

    I'm scared for today against Argentina. I know Argentina aren't in a good shape themselves but, still, it could get ugly.

    Germany leading early vs Argentina. Rojo with complete unnecessary tackle leading to Gnabry's goal.

    Rojo with a mistake again. 2-0 Germany 25 minutes in

    Argentina’s defence have been absolute crap since World Cup 2014. And when the opposition don’t have to worry about Messi they look even worse.

    why aren’t Lisandro Martinez getting a chance? Also, Kannemann on the bench is miles better than Otamendi/Rojo

    How serious is Argentina's lineup today? B-team?

    Otamendi, Taglifico, Foyth, Paredes, De Paul and Lautaro were all starters in the Copa. Pereyra and Dybala also played from the beginning during the tournament.

    Argentina reminding me of Barca; too many slow players all over the pitch.

    what a free kick from Germany. And what a rocket from De Paul.

    I feel embarrassed every time the commentator mentions that Rojo is associated with Manchester United. Absolute garbage of a player.

    Do Argentina not have any good young defenders coming through, CB combination of Otamendi and Rojo is just dreadful. Said before but don't think Foyth at RB is long term option either.

    Not watching, but just seen this. Shows stats don't always mean much.

    Are they playing their full team though? Germany have quite a few players injured/rested so I think Argentina would be doing the same.

    Really like what's coming from Germany btw but I think Argentina don't represented the highest level of competition right now.

    I'm in love with Klostermann btw. Such a good alround RB, finally we've found someone to replace Lahm (without having to play out of position). Him and Halstenberg can be our wing back for many years.

    Am I missing something? Seems it shows a lot in this case.

    I meant about possession and passing that people seem obsessed with. It is about putting the ball in the net.

    And it's continuing right where we left off, Gnabry running, winning a corner, ball comes to Waldschmidt, nice shot but to the side net.

    Also could mean Argentina had to pass more because they were losing early, and Germany could sit on the counter and create shots easily.

    Its criminal that we have completely ignored the German market for years. There are so many talented players available and yet we dont seem to make a move . I am not even talking about the superstar signings.

    There really aren't to be honest. German football has been declining quite heavily in the last couple of years.

    First time I’ve watched Havertz quality player, who does he play for and how much would he cost?

    But he does have Real Madrid written all over him.
