World Cup 2018

Postby Dave Cahill » June 13th, 2018, 11:21 am

Well this is getting off to a bang with the news that Julen Lopetegui has been given the toe end by the Spanish FA two days before they take on European Champions Portugal in their opening game. No news yet on whether he told Luis Rubiales to shove it up his bollocks.

It would appear that los quesos grandes in the Spanish FA were less than impressed with his decision to take the Real Madrid without informing them until 5 minutes before the announcement dropped.

Fantastic! Pass the popcorn.

Ronaldo finally scores a goal from a freekick for his country at the 47th attempt.
I'd fancy Devin Toner to have a better strike rate than that.
Sorry Dev.
You know I'm going to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!

He couldnt score an absolute beauty like that. It was stunning and well defended.

Truly great.

I think the free kick start relates to international tournaments. Ronaldo is just doing everything he hadn't got around to before at the end of his career. Let's hope Messi does the same.
