International Football thread

Small thread to discuss small topics which don't deserve a thread.

Have you guys watched the latest Copa America? Both Argentina and Brazil have lost in the quarters! :shock: :o

Was it just me or was there something suspicious about Brazil missing all of their penalties?

Football is more than a religion in Brazil, no way would they lose on purpose. It's just not Brazilian.

It all kicked off between Paraguay & Venezuela at the end of the match. Mass brawl between both sets of players & officials.

A stunning run from Venezuela, considering that football is not even their number one sport....

Baseball is more important than football in Venezuela.

I think Uruguay should be favourites to beat Paraguay in the final....

Yep, but Paraguay haven't lost a match (they haven't won one either, they could just win this copa america without winning one much! That should be a first).

Uruguay have a very good team, Suarez and Forlan are great players.

Not yet. It has had some rave reviews, though.

Interesting that Platini hasn't said anything negative about their new sugar daddy....

Hypocritical *modded*. :angry
