To the good stuff..... Who's watching the tournament? I've been watching certain games like Spain, England, Argentina, Brazil, and of course my national team Panama. Unfortunately we got knocked out today.. Today in the morning before the uni i bought the paper, and in the sports section (always crowded with football news ) read our manager was super confident.. He got asked by a brazilian journalist if loosing today to Brazil meant he wouldn't be the Coach any more and he replied "i don't know, but we are gonna loose, today we will surprise" ... many players had similar attitudes, and its that a Pastor visited them and inspired them, and they had a lot of motivational speaches by different staff memebers, so psycologicaly they where waaaay bosted and confident, which lead to them scoring the first goal, but unfortunatly it got rightfully called offside.. Panama kept having good counterattacks with 7-8 quick passes.. But brazil took control of the game and beat us 4-0... We hit the crossbar at the end, but we lost and are knocked out early....
Anyway lads...who do you guys reckon will take the trophy home?
Spain is favorite because lets face it, they won the european u-21 with thiago and co, and now won the u-19 tournament with defoljou and co(obviously so many more players) .. the u-20 looks tight with canales... and they simply are winning everything.. Marca, had a quote:
Brazil? Who started shaky and are lacking neymar, but have a local squad and made it through with 7 points?"footballl is a game of 11 vs 11 where Spain always wins"
Argentina? They have the most world cup titles in the u-20 division than any other nation, i think its 6 they have?
Germany? I don't even know if they are playing but they probably are, and they are always favorites!
Uruguay? Have been doing awesome tournaments as a nation..Won the copa america, exelent world cup, and second in the u-17 tournament down in mexico.. they're football programs are working brilliantly and are obtaining succes...
Others?? Which ones? What team, players, do you like? Discuss!
