First match is on Thursday and I am so pumped. I honestly think Brazil comes out nervous in the first half and Croatia is really able to keep it close. May even go up a goal early, but Brazil ultimately takes it. I say 2-1 Brazil.
That would be interesting. I am quite interested in seeing that match up, especially if Suarez ends up staying at Liverpool.
I think it would be a more even match up than most people would think. Especially the way the two sides play. Both have the ability to control possession, but both are more than willing to sit back and play the counter attack game. RM and Liverpool have pace for daaaaays.
There's a ton to fear this summer. There's rumors about Di Maria, Varane, and Benzema being targeted. Then there's Xabi's health and age to look at. Normally, it wouldn't be an issue but we're looking to sign Suarez and Vidal or Pogba this summer. As a result, there will be casualties.
Meanwhile, we're over here signing Emre Can and Rickie Lambert...
True but there's other players who deserved the spot instead of Neymar. For instance, Oscar. He looks like the superior player between the two.
Neymar is definitely a better player than Oscar. There were even some murmurings that Oscar might not make the Brazil squad, but Scolari loves him. Neymar is also the face of Brazilian football globally. Everyone knows who he is.
Hardly. We'll move from league season to Champions League/Europa. That's the great thing about Soccer. the offseason is minimal, and during it there is so much to talk about with transfers, coaches being sacked etc etc.
Especially this year. The offseason is essentially non-existent. We have international friendlies going on since UCL ended, then we have WC, then we have basically two weeks before International Champions Cup starts, and then league play starts.
