just need to play him as a CF and we will be grand.Hatrick in 30 minutes so will be coming back to premier league in good form.
I always think with him one season he's going to explode and hit 20 + goals and good number of assists and then Everton will have clubs bidding 90m odd for him.
Isn't Neuhaus 24, born in 1997? Oh wait Henrichs is also born in 97 and playing. Then yea Neuhaus could have played. I'll give you have Baku as well, though Nmecha I'm not sure how great he is and Max Kruse is playing as a striker and he's a really good player himself (maybe not as a lone striker though).Neuhaus, Musiala, Baku, Moukoko, Nmecha for example. There are also better "senior" players than Amiri or Kruse. E.g. Boateng, Reus or Dahoud didn't make the EC, heck, Brazil and Spain are even bringing players, who played with the first team this summer. Their clubs must love that.
Yea we've seen the 2017 U21 winners regress. Other than Gnabry, no other player from that squad has become a regular for the national team yet. Amongst the current winners, I don't see a lot of potential as well. Wirtz is of course a standout but then it's a bunch of decent players in Nmecha and Baku.Germany has been pretty succesful with those subpar teams lately though...
U21 Euro 2015 semi-finalists
Olympics 2016 finalists
Confed Cup 2017 winners
U21 Euro 2017 winners
U21 Euro 2019 finalists
U21 Euro 2021 winners
They were always overachieving with those average squads. This feels like the time they finally get shown up but you never know...maybe they scrape through to the next round and then manage to surprise us again.
A semi realistic lineup for Team D would have been something like this:Isn't Neuhaus 24, born in 1997? Oh wait Henrichs is also born in 97 and playing. Then yea Neuhaus could have played. I'll give you have Baku as well, though Nmecha I'm not sure how great he is and Max Kruse is playing as a striker and he's a really good player himself (maybe not as a lone striker though).
Regarding the over 23 players, I don't think any team regularly send their best players to fill that role. It's usually taken by players who aren't the most important players for the national team. I biggest player I can remember to play in that role was Neymar in 2015 but that was also because the Olympics were in Brazil.
Phew, I nearly jinxed Spain with this post. Unless France can score 5 goals in the next 20 minutes it seems like I was right.As things stand now: Japan, Brazil, South Korea and Spain will be the 4 group winners. I reckon one of these will win the whole thing.
Can't even imagine he's pulling out these achievements considering I have never been that fully convinced with him as a manager, but now he won AFCON U-23 in 2019 and now progressed through a very difficult group in the Olympics. Regardless of what happens against Brazil this tournament has been a success for this team.Can't believe this team is coached by Shawky Gharib, it's way better than I expected.
