    They do know they can get a yellow card for that, right?

    I always imagine Gabe Norwood or Arwind Santos as a goalkeeper, while calvin and pingris are perfect for CB, Scottie as a box to box midfielder , Cj Perez as a winger, Castro as a attacking midfielder or a false 9, idk if thirdy will be a good striker, imagine sol mercado as DM while alapag and tenorio as maestros ala modric
    Calvin as our CB? Yeah, we'll have to play with 10 men once in a while, as he might be liable for a few reds. Hahahahahaha.

    we can compare Calvin to Pepe or Ramos, his built is good for a CB that is why i'm thinking about him as one, filipino version of Sergio Ramos

    Theatrics and physicality aside, Calvin with his leaping ability can also be a great finisher through headers on set pieces or corner, just like Ramos.

    Theatrics and physicality are also similarities between the two. Ramos is the record holder for cards, especially reds, and has had a reputation for flopping. Hahahahahaha.

Qatar only qualified because they bought that spot.. They didn't earned it... For PHL and JPN, Hoping for atleast competitive matches at their home turf next year... Prove that they earned that spot, Not only by bought.... Qatar faced probably the team that should they beat (Ecuador)... But they didn't....
    They thought Ecuador is easy pickings and they just need to beat the other non-European team in their group, Senegal. They underestimated that these countries live and bleed football 24/7. There were rumours that the Ecuadorians were offered money to deliberately lose to Qatar, but they didnt count the fact that the Ecuadorians and all other teams here cannot be bought.

    AFC teams are simply far behind in skill level compared to CONMEBOL and CAF teams. Remember Ecuador is in the same confederation as Brazil and Argentina so they really need to fight for their place with Chile, Colombia, Uruguay, and Paraguay all formidable foes for that last two spot. In last year’s Arab Cup, you see a glaring difference between North African and Gulf Arab teams in terms of skill and Physique. It shows how AFC teams are really at a disadvantage because the confederation is considered the weakest.

    AFC is about equal to CONCACAF, yeah USA and MEX are strong, but all others suck, Canada included. I think Iran, Japan and Korea ( fine, let's include the Aussies ) have 50/50 chance to beat the top 3 of North America and Caribbean nations

    Messi got his PK blocked by Polish goalie. In fact, the goalie was sensational in the 1st half as he stopped 10 or 11 Argentinian shots.

    Argentina got its breakthrough goal on the first few minutes on the 2nd half. And Argentina kept pressure until they eventually scored the 2nd goal

    Hence the big European ballclub's preference to recruit players from countries associated with CONMEBOL and CAF region. Although AFC countries like SK, JPN, AUS, IRN, etc. also produce world-class footballing talents, it's not at the same rate as countries like BRA, ARG, URU, NGA, SEN, GHA, just to give some examples. I mean, when I looked at the WC rosters to know where players ply their trade professionally, I was genuinely surprised to find out that all the players called up for SEN for WC are mostly in the top 5 Euro leagues.

    Wojciech Szczesny is one of the best gk in european football, being the one who replaced Gigi Buffon at Juve he is really a top quality gk, though sometimes he has some brain farts that cost Juve some games but his performance in this world cup is not a surprise, he came a long way from being the goalkeeper of Arsenal when they got destroyed by Man Utd 8-2, without him maybe Poland will not advance to the next round as he was immense against Saudi Arabia, and they were also lucky that Mexico never scored that 3rd goal as Poland is the worst team in their group when it comes to the style of play,

    Among the asian teams, japan has the most number of players who plays in European Leagues, most are in Bundesliga , while South Korea also has decent number of players in top European league and one of them is a top player in the EPL , though Son is not having a best season compare to his last in which he tied with Mo Salah as the top scorer of EPL

    Speaking of GK, Frenchman of Filipino origin, Alphones Areola is in the squad the past 2 editions. He was the 3rd string GK when France won it all 4 years ago, and it looks like he is still No. 3 behind captain Lloris and another one.



    BTW, monsieur is 6'5, and if he grew up in the PHL, he'll probably play forward/center and be playing on a hard court and not on the pitch
