  1. Cannot believe the world number 1 side has such a muppet as manager. Would be like Bayern appoint Big Sam.

    Mason is having an absolute sublime season, i just keep thinking of those pictures of him as a little boy, and now look where he is, in the thick of it, fighting for tackles, crossing the ball for goals. No wonder the kid keeps on smiling.

  3. Another solid performance Early goal is everything against teams who set out with a low block Result was never in doubt Sterling has had a great tournament Southgate has got the calls so far spot on so far, brave to keep Grealish on the bench Clean sheet again…so important in tournament football Could this be the year? We are the self preservation society!

  16. Could someone explain the obsession with Jack Grealish to me? It really confuses me. He's a good player, quite skillful. But the way the media talk about him and the way the crows reacts every time they see him on the bench, or he touches the ball, you'd think he was prime Messi. It's not a case of him not being a Chelsea player so I'm putting him down. I genuinely don't get it.

    No offence taken, mate! I was just surprised, we certainly are a lesser country than Italy in economy and many things like national team football, but certainly not in the food or I don’t think so, anyways. I have seen a Croatian stall in my local market here in the uk that sell all kinds of cured meats and cheeses, and I have to agree that they have very good aspect, but never tasted them. I’ll put them on my list, certainly it is also a country I’d like to visit at some point.

  19. I think that has more to do with how this list is constructed. What has Belgium done to be considered the best footballing nation in the world?

  20. If we have something that we are proud of and which is not below par with Italy, is food. Tortilla española, croquetas, cocido, fabada, pulpo a feira, all kinds of paella, gazpacho, salmorejo, a far superior ham (jamón ibérico pata negra) and cured meats like chorizo, salchichón, morcillas, fresh fish, Iberian pork meats…. Our tapas and pintxos, wines…. Nothing to envy Italy, though I like their country and their food as well very much and I feel close to Italians in many ways being Mediterranean.

    Spain has traditionally never had a strong national team. For those of us old enough the 2008-20012 period was unheard of and the exception rather than the rule. We never got past the round of 16, if we got to qualify. Maybe the final lost to France in the Euro of 1984 was the best we had ever done. And Italy has always been our nemesis, much like Germany to England. It was amazing to beat them in 2008 and 2012, but I’m afraid that this year things will get back to normal with Italy beating us. I remember the elbowing from Tassoti very well, I was watching the game in a hall of residence at UEA with some friends. I believe that Tassoti was banned from playing for a long number of games, not sure if he ever played again.

  23. The only thing Martinez has done apart from ruining the Belgian golden generation is interfere in their club careers.. a team which had a prime Hazard /KDB/Lukaku/Kompany/Courtois should have won at least one tournament out of the 3/4 they competed in.. completely shambolic that Belgium couldn’t find a better manager than this fraud!

    The team I have enjoyed watching the most in the euros is Italy. Mancini has got them playing with freedom and real tempo. Their movement is superb, miles ahead of England. It has surprised me because I watch quite a bit of Serie A and the quality of the league at the moment is pretty average overall IMO. Just goes to prove that you don't necessarily need the best players to be the best team. That said, in Chilieni and Bonucci, they have best centre-back pairing in the competition by a country mile!

  31. England has been a terribly boring team to watch. Did you really find them more entertaining than Italy, Denmark, even Spain or Germany?! Frankly, the only team that has played trash turgid football and has progressed is England. This skillful set of players deserves a better manager. Southgate (like Martinez) seems to have no clear attacking ideology. With Italy and Mancini, the benefits of a good coach come out so beautifully.

    🤔🤔🤔 I am confused, I said he isn't a regista you said he is. So I want you to watch their video back to back so you can judge whether Jorginho passing is regista quality. This is just weird. It is like if my friend tell me that he is a wc dribbler and I ask him to watch his video and Hazard back to back infer that I think his dribbling and Hazard is comparable 🤔🤔

    I’m sure Kanté was seeing running around in the pitch in 2008, 2010 and 2012, but they all talked about extraterrestrials having come in an UFO. Now it’s explained!

    I certainly didn’t mean to offend. FWIW I think Spanish cuisine is fantastic, one of the best. It’s just that Italy is THE best for me. V subjective of course. I would agree that some of the Spanish cured meats are better than the Italian ones and you can very plausibly make a case for Spanish food in general being better than Italian. Btw since we are doing Mediterranean food comps, my favourite cured meat of all is the Dalmatian one (dalmatinski pršut) especially from around Drniš. Has to be the best ones, not the one you can buy in the supermarkets. You should try it if you ever go there. I get that I could be accused of bias here, so let me also say I think by and large Croatia doesn’t come anywhere close to either Spain or Italy in the food rankings.

  40. Have to say it's been a pretty disappointing tournament for the good attacking teams. Shame to see turgid trash football progress to the semis on one side of the draw. Sad when England are arguably the most entertaining team in the tournament.

    I don’t know, but Italy plays a midfield of 3 and not all balls go through him. He plays more like a DM, which would have its risks in the PL, and his colleagues re more creative and attacking minded than what we have (Verrati and Barella today, more creativity and danger than Kovacic or Kante).

    The World's first international football match. Interesting that there is a hyphen between foot and ball. I wonder when the hyphen was dropped. Over the years hyphens have been dropped from plenty of words. An announcement about the game in England in 1873. No hyphen so possibly a Scottish thing with football being hyphenated?

  45. Well there is something strange happening. Headlines that have appeared over the last few weeks: Haaland does not want to go to Chelsea. No offers received. Haaland agrees personal terms with Chelsea. Haaland's agent has negotiations with Madrid. RA to personally negotiate the Haaland transfer.

    Timo Werner

    A lot of his "misses" were in fact saves by the keeper ... it's not as if he's smashing it wide or into row Z. That is at least encouraging ... he just needs to tweak things so he misses the keeper but is still on target !

    Marcos Alonso

    If, as seems likely, both Tammy and Giroud leave in this window, the top scorer left at the club will be Mr Alonso ! That's his big plus vs Emerson ... he can score goals ... plus his height at the back is very useful.

    I am a big fan and have big hopes for next season. A few more goals would help but his overall contribution to the team has been great. Not only his runs but also his attitude and commitment is fantastic
