I was just looking at this setup. We might have teams playing for second place.

The group is really too tight to try and game the system, especially before matches start. What we might see is a situation where Spain are up by two at half and Germany and their crappy offense are still struggling to break down CR and the game is 0-0, so Spain at that point takes their foot off the gas and rests starters… but going in, this group is too tight.

  • Win vs. JAP: ESP qualify as group winner.

  • Loss vs. ESP: Japan are eliminated.
Costa Rica
  • Win vs. GER: CRC qualify as group winner (if ESP-JAP draw) or group runner-up (if ESP win), including based on tiebreakers (if JAP win)
  • Draw vs. GER: CRC qualify as group runner-up only if JAP loses. (JAP win or draw and CRC are eliminated.)

It might be worse than that if they start Fulkrug and bench Muller.

Japan and CR are not very good with CR being awful

Spain getting hosed by winning the group

I think Japan is a pretty decent side actually and I won't be surprised if they beat Spain. They'll defend all game but they've proven they can turn it on.


I'm hoping for a Japan and CR win!

Derek Rae drives me nuts with his pronunciation of anything German. He tries to sound more German that actual Germans

Has a team ever gone home with a win and a double digit negative GD? Feel like we might be seeing that soon.

Morata might need to force his way into the starting 11 and keep the coach's daughter's boyfriend on the bench.

So if you were a 19 year old Soccer star, would you get with a super model or the Princess of the Royal family in your country?

Surprised Japan is playing 5-4-1 in defense. Spain just has to move the ball around the back and their line forward will never keep up

Supermodel…. The Idea of marrying a princess and popping our new princes and princess is cool. But I bet that life is demanding, controlled, and less free…

Unai Simon is the gift that keeps on giving with his playing out of the back. So close to a huge issue multiple times a game

Unai Simon over David De Gea? I mean he's a good goaltender but he makes some head scratching decisions with the ball at his feet.

I have a hard time seeing Japan getting a foothold in this game with how well Spain is moving the ball about.

And yeah i know De Gea struggled in 2018 and Simon has been there since the 2020 Euros but De Gea has been playing well with ManU… I think….

How long do you want to ignore this user?
Simon is selected because he is much better with his feet than De Gea. Same reason why there are rumors United will replace De Gea with him (I don't think they will but it's possible). Fits into Spain's style and the style ETH wants to play at United.
