Going to western Canada for 2 days next week. Not Vancouver though, I'm doing Northern BC to see some nature and wildlife including Grizzlies, Moose and hopefully Cougars.
Currently booking up some tours but the flight is nearly sorted.
3 of the last 4 round of 16's: out to South America.
In the last 3 Copa America's, they've only beaten Uruguay, while losing to Peru, Chile, Uruguay (2011), Ecuador and drawing against Bolivia, Chile (2015) and Venezuela.
This. Croatia to me haven't been very good and are way overrated by some. They've been good with their pressing but when it comes to attacking, they are inept. Its always 1 player (usually Perisic or Modric) driving forward with the rest arriving to the box really late, often leaving them with...
Its been embarassing so far, but I'm not overly shocked. Particularly with Colombia and Argentina who were god awful in qualifying. I expected more from Peru, and Uruguay/Brazil have done their job, albeit the latter have also been very underwhelming.
Not sure about that, I thought they were terrible most of the second half. However, near the end of the first and start of the second, they exposed our weakness and won the aerial duel which we just gifted.
We were good in the first half, and we've not really declined. Rather, Denmark have been intelligent and have tried to expose our aerial weakness and that is helping them hugely in this game.
I'm a bit pessimistic to be honest, we need to see Paolo Guerrero.
Wank. We played them back in March and it was a piss easy win. Also finished behind Iceland in qualifying and went out in the last World Cup groups to one of the worst Mexico teams in my life.
They have good players but no work ethic. One of the most overrated teams on the planet.
I said in the box that when a team has a lot of posession, the game is quite boring to me unless there is goals. This is an exception for me, I've actually enjoyed this. I'm always intrigued at what errors Argentina are going to make at the back.
Sampaoli has got it all wrong. From starting...
What are you lot on about? It was a clear pen. I hate VAR too, but if you're going to use it make the correct call, which it was made in this case.
Risdon won the ball albeit barely and it didn't change direction and then went on to sandwich Griezmann's leg and clip him. It wasn't an easy call...
