tiny wee new nation scoring 3 goals against england in england and looing dangerous whenever they come forward
i hope the scottish fa, the manager and the players are watching this, thats how much these players in this tiny country want to play for their national team
Stumbled across this England game channel hopping and it’s been cracking entertainment!
4 Goals for Ronaldo tonight
William Carvalho with the 5th
People think in england it all started at Chelsea, but Man U started it all.
They may have been great servants for the club in the long run but spending £30mill each on Ferdinand and Rooney at the time was mental.
Harry Maguire is by far the single most overrated defender in world football. Strong in the air sure but you can see the difference in level between him and say VVD.
Cristiano became the highest goalscorer in Euro qualifiers (24 goals, surpassing Robbie Keane).
Portugal is probably in the top3 to win Euro 2020.
Rui Patrício (31y)
João Cancelo (25y)
Rúben Dias (22y)
Pepe (36y) / Ferro (22y)
Raphael Guerreiro (25y)
Rúben Neves (22y)
Bernardo Silva (25y)
Rafa Silva (26y)
João Félix (19y)
Cristiano Ronaldo (34y)
Plus Nélson Semedo, Ricardo Pereira, Danilo, João Moutinho, Renato Sanches, Bruno Fernandes, Gonçalo Guedes, etc. A young squad, with the undoubtedly greatest European goalscorer (Cristiano) and in my opinion the best European player (Bernardo Silva).
I wouldn't say it was United. I could be wrong but from what I remember it was Blackburn Rovers under Jack Walker that started the transfer madness down there.. he was throwing money at players and clubs backed up by his own personal fortune.. look how that turned out.
Harry Maguire is a decent CB but is nowhere close to VVD. Leicester did some brilliant business selling him for 80 when they had two young CB's in Soyunco & Benkovic who cost less than 35. Both of them younger, faster & and better on the ball.
Man U have had their pants pulled down yet again.
A very well balanced team and some amount of depth. Felix is frighteningly talented for one so young.
Carvalho is always impressive when I see him, perhaps lacks a bit of pace but reads the game and uses the ball very well.
My parents were in Madeira when you won the last Euros and said the place went mental. They made friends with the father of Danny (ex sporting and Zenit) who is apparently a lovely guy, from Venezuela I believe.
Good luck anyway. Have a soft spot for you but can't find it in myself to like Cristiano!
