Caught the second half of our friendly with Chile yesterday, and we should have been out of sight tbh. Could have had at least 4 goals if the final ball was a bit better. The play between midfield and attack seems very fluid, just lacking that finishing touch. Ended 1-0 to Chile after a load of subs on both sides killed the tempo of the game. Also featured Man Yoo flop Angelo Henriquez and his amazing miss...


Think we've got the potential to upset some teams when tournament time comes.

I was curious about "we"because I couldn't remember that England played Chile but then I realized that Serbia is meant and this is the "Adoption" Thread.

WOW, G.B is already in "full identification" mode :D

A nice 5-1 win for the boys in yesterdays warm up game against Bolivia. Mitro's on fire, netting himself a hat-trick and earning us another few million for his transfer.

My team Mexico battered those boring Scots the other day (whoever that manager is MacLoieeeesh or something was it?) and their anti-football. Good to see us prevailing there, and in fine fettle for the upcoming tourney!

we were robbed btw
Confirmed by FIFA sending the referee home for ignoring VAR and refusing to review Mitro's blatant penalty. Couple more of them sent home for the same thing, including the ref of the Tunisia/England game.

Oh right I got the Swiss. I think I only watched the Brazil game and that's it. Was in a plane for the Serbia game (which looked really good) where we relied on our Albanian brothers to win and the again against Costa Rica (what a terrible tournament they had, the friendly defeats to Belgium and England were bad omens). Alas, Sweden knocked us out, the bastards!

Oh well...
