Re: Official World Cup 2014 Thread With Robin Van Persie suspended, tonight will be the first time in 221 games (1996) that the Netherlands will play without a player with 'Van' in their name.

During World Cup and European Championship I prefer to watch all games, but if I miss some of group stage games, it would be:

Mexico - Cameroon

Japan - Greece

South Korea - Algeria

And pretty much every Honduras and Austalia game.

South Korea-Algeria may be interesting, mate.

South Korea is a decent NT and Algeria isn't abysmal, you know. ;)

Plus, neither one of them is very defensive, like (for instance) Greece, so the match might be entertaining.

Korean player, especially young and not in Olympics 2012 squad, will play not only for their country but also for outside chance for getting military exemption :P

Mainz left back Park Joo-ho comes to mind as he must return home (barring any special delay to enter military) next year to complete military duty.

There are quite a number of countries with mandatory conscription to their country, other are selectively picked to serve. Israel, Egypt and Algeria are the few of them, same goes for my country lol.

D - Skipping

E - 1st France 2nd Swiss

F - 1st Argentina 2nd Bosnia

G - 1st Germany 2nd Portugal

Re: Official World Cup 2014 Thread

Did a search and couldn't find it but who do you think Holland's starting 11 for the World Cup will be? I've seen at lot of places say Vorm will be GK but Cillessen's played all recent friendlies :confused:

Cillessen definitely their #1. Read benefoot or some website similar that LvG likes his possesion play.

Is that so? :D

Dzeko is on my Fantasy WC team' date=' so he better be fit. ;)

Run lad, run like the wind! :o[/quote']

Yes, Lee Keun-ho, (former) Asian player of the year after winning Asian Champs League, right after he received that award he went to military duty and thus "relegated" to the military club in 2nd tier, rumour has it that he turned down Europe because of that. Shame if true.

Ah, Fantasy WC, hear that FIFA one is crazy as we need to name 23 players with 100m budget?

Fashion magasine Elle made a list of hottest players according to them who will play on this World Cup. Some of the players on the list are: James Rodriguez of Colombia, Asmir Begović of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Didier Drogba of Ivory Coast, Alexis Sanchez of Chile, Olivier Giroud of France, Adam Kwarasey of Ghana, and of course, Ronaldo of Portugal.

Re: Official World Cup 2014 Thread

Demoloshing Ireland right now, back to the 433 after experiments in the previous trial matches. William Meireles and Amorim looking very fluid in midfield and Neto with a great game so far in defence. Not pressing very high on the Irish inviting them in, so this should be already the model for the WC games

Edit: Moutinho is playing in midfield, not Amorim. Amorim is the RB and is also looking superb with Varela on the flank
