Hard to know who to root for.  Italy play like thugs.  And England have their moronic fans.

I can’t root for England because that means means England’s fans win

Pickford left way early on that PK. England cheats and gets away with it again.

England loses, I guess their fans get to riot in anger instead of joy

Fun Gold Cup final between a very young USA team and Mexico.  In Las Vegas.  Maybe should have had the Raiders fans there to match the Mexican fans?

well, it is a continental championship, but it's not like europe or south america in terms of quality or prestige, and not comparable to the olympics or world cup.

And the team we beat is in the semis of the bigger tournament. Meanwhile the US men continue to be absent on the world stage

So our under 23 beat their veterans. Not bad. Beats losing.

Jack Grealish becomes the English Premier League's record signing - my nephew (City season ticket holder) will be delighted.

No official deal (yet) - Messi claiming that he has other offers (oh yeah?...). The prospect of a PSG front three of Messi, Neymar and Mbappe is pretty mouthwatering.

I am sure many teams would want him.  Maybe he can play for DC United.  :hysterical:
