Anybody watching this?

 

Just watched a very entertaining 1-1 between Australia and Colombia. Some very promising young players for Australia playing a very high tempo attacking game - very unlucky not to win IMO. Also noticed that the Aussie squad features ex-Villa academy player Reece Caira. Didn't get on the pitch this game though.

 

Three very promising young Melbourne Victory players - Conor Pain and the two fullbacks - Galloway and Geria (best player on the pitch for mine).

 

Our goal was scored by Daniel De Silva - just 16 years of age and an absolute livewire. 

 

England's campaign gets underway tomorrow against Iraq. Iraq not a team to be underestimated.

dont be daft, we only won the U19 european competition...

 

We beat Chelsea in the final and they beat Arsenal in the semis. Neither of them have any players in it either. How exactly did they pick this squad?

no messing about from France players like Pogba and Thauvin are quality. This is really unheralded in UK but this is a brilliant competition and important tournament around the world

i just worked it out on wiki, the england squad has 65 appearances in the prem between them, our captain is 20 and has 1 sub appearance for liverpool, flanagan, birigimana and prowse are 75% of them, none of them regular starters

 

france have 304 top flight appearances between them...

 

and afaik this is important, there isnt a world U19 or U21 tournament is there? just this one

France only won because they didn't qualify for the u21 European Championship meaning they could take a stronger squad to the u20 World Cup.

 

FIFA and UEFA should sort out this clash of tournaments.
