Surely England can get out of that group.. ;)

 

You would think so. A large proportion of Iraq's squad are playing in a world cup qualifier against Australia on Tuesday and then flying out for this tournament. Whether thats a good thing or not, Im not sure. Playing senior football could be an advantage for them, they could also be really burned out.

Im really looking forward to this. Our own Curtis Good is captaining Australia. Weve done pretty well in our warm up games. Beat New Zealand 5-0, Drew 2-2 with Germany u/21's and lost 3-1 to the dutch u/21's. Interested to see how we go. One of our Daniel de Silva has just turned 16. So big step up for him. Our best player Mustafa Amini who plays for Dortmund 2, has controversially been omitted from the squad, due to fitness issues apparently. Should be good!

Everton seem very well represented, as do the smoggies. Couldn't say what any of em are like mind. Youth set ups better there than we have? Or is it a case of us having more overseas youth??

 

They have better youth set ups. Our only two reps in the tournament developed at other clubs.

France's team man, so experienced for this level :lol:

 

Umtiti, Digne, Zouma, Kondogbia, Thauvin and Pogba all play in Ligue 1, La Liga or Serie A and Sanogo just joined Arsenal.

 

Got to think they will have a massive mental and physical advantage over the rest, no one else will come close experience wise.
