Plus, last year (during de Copa) he needed Neymar and Douglas Costa to rescue him versus Peru. Allyuh remember that piece of brilliance at the death? One of the best passes that will ever grace a football field.
Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, the outgoing president of Croatia, said corruption was so embedded in her country that at school children who cheated in tests were celebrated as “heroes”. A recent Eurobarometer survey found that a majority of Croatians felt affected by corruption.

Sound familiar, T&T?

If Brazil finish second in their group then the US may end up playing them anyway  :devil:. All this talk by commentators about avoiding Brazil by winning the group is premature.
.

See exactly what I said happened! Yesterday when Colombia lost to CR the American commentators were in jubilation because the US finished on top the group and thought they would escape Brazil, But like I said yesterday that was premature thinking because no one should be sure if Brazil would top their group.

It is what it is....ever forward, never backward. We will hopefully learn from our mistakes. 3 chances to qualify and we blew it....that in itself should resonate within each of the guys that I'm sure is watching the Copa as well.

So on a lighter note, I enjoyed my chuckle...where RF...the top teams in concacaf are, Mexico, CR, USA, TnT, Panama and so forth in that order

As much as we don't want to face it, Jamaica is better than us at the moment. Although we are more skillful and techically sound than them. Their strength is in their UB40s who can run hard and get behind the ball. They also get the opportunity to play more friendlies which leaves us at a huge disadvantage. However, you see the results we can get when we have the same core of players playing regularly. It's just unfortunate that we never had our best for that game (although Haiti never had their best as well ).. I do believe if both teams had their best, we would have come out victorious. Well the past is the past. Now we look onto Guatemala.

We got a huge encounter in October against Martinique. This is for a spot to the Caribbean Cup and the Gold cup. Just something to think about, if we f00k up against Guatemala and Martinique, there will be nothing to look forward to for 3 years. One last thing Martinique DOES HAVE A BETTER RECORD against us. So September and October will be very crucial..

Brazil's football confederation has fired national coach Dunga in the wake of the team's elimination from the Copa America in the United States.

The confederation announced Dunga's dismissal in a brief statement Tuesday, adding that the search for a new coach has begun.

Gilmar Rinaldi, the team's general manager, was also fired Brazil failed to get past the group stage after drawing 0-0 with Ecuador, beating Haiti 7-1 and losing 1-0 to Peru on Sunday.

1 - Doh fuhget......we went WC and "scored a goal too".....an own goal.  At least Jamaica scored goals AND won in France

2 - We had the chance to beat Jamaica to prove that we are above them in CONCACAF.  We lost to them on penalties in the Caribbean Cup final when we had them to hang and instead decide to sabotage we own self by striking before the game.

Also......Jamaica had the misfortune to be drawn with Costa Rica, Panama, and Haiti in WCQ.  Had we had a similar group, I'm not so sure we would have survived it either.

Finally.....Jamaica made it to the Gold Cup semi finals.  We didn't.


And anybody who knows me knows I eh no Jamaica fan and I will take any opportunity to chuckle at RF dem.  But until our results change for the better......especially head to head against them......we have little to chat about.

Just my opinion eh....no disrespect intended.   :beermug:

Very good points, the socawarriors have blown their opportunities to be playing at this tournament, I just really don't think that Jamaica, Panama or Haiti is better than our guys. We played those 3 teams and yes we lost to them, they earned their spot. Are they better, again, I don't think so. We are no Argentina, but the brand SH has been trying to instill since 13 to now...we look technical, we move the ball on the ground as a post to Shabazz hit and hope, and we just make better runs now, collectively and individually, (look at spur midfielders and defenders scoring). Just overall progress....or is it a false sense of nothing...because we haven't made any impact in terms of getting any where...lost on penalties in the GC to Panama...

As per the original conversation...coach say score a goal and they did...yea sancho had put one in de net in 2006, that was 2006!

We are better than that what look like a make shift Jamaican team. Idc

Better he get the axe now, than wait until  the Olympics. Because it would be a travesty for them to be the host country and put down a pile when the expectation is to win the goal medal.
