I have no idea why so many people shit on this idea. You're playing Holland and France in a competitive environment. Would you rather have friendlies against Greece and Australia instead or something?

I just want to watch club football two with no retarded international breaks in between. And don't tell me the nations league is competitive, Iam sure most of the players don't want to come home injured or to exhausted and therefore don't play at their max
>>
>>88227042
>And don't tell me the nations league is competitive
At least A teams are fielded, as opposed to Z teams being fielded in friendlies.

just imagine how fucking funny it is going to be when Italy and the Netherlands get relegated and have to go play Israel and Northern Ireland for two years

Croatia have been based and picked a stadium with a big ridge along one side of it so you might well get some madlads going and watching from there even though it's supposed to be behind closed doors
>>
>>88227864
Croatia pretty
>>
>>88226993
mmm I'm in doubt desu
maybe croatia x england will be better to watch
it's that I like Lukaku, Hazard, De Bruyne a lot but let's see
>>
>>88227949
The lack of crowd will make England Croatia absolute kino. You'll get to hear every word from the players and see people sneaking into the stadium.

>>88227949
It will be a more entertaining game if only for the banter

>>88228328
...in a match that was being played behind closed doors because Croats had chanted racist chants at the Norwegians before that
>>
>>88228529
Which was itself a match with reduced seating because they had been racist towards Italians in a previous match and threw fireworks and missiles at the pitch

how can you be racist against chad looking people? It makes no sense

Going to Sochi tomorrow at 5AM to watch the game, lads, from 6C to 23C. Then hit some bar after the game where I could just talk to chicks who went too about the game to break the ice, a real life saver, gon' be a good night.

lads... how likely is it that england loses? i've been working on my anger issues but i don't know if i could take it if croatia lost today. i don't want to break any more electronic devices, please help
>>
>>88228768
england are experimenting with a bunch of young players like maddison, mount and sancho
>>
>>88228791
croatia are also experimenting with young players and they suck. in a scale of 1-10, just how bad are england's young players? with 10 being complete shit and 1 being great
>>
>>88228804
well mount plays for a championship side, sancho plays for dortmund and maddison plays for leicester
they're alright and Sancho has potential but they've never been tested against a senior national side
>>
>>88228825
In most likelihood we'll see Barkley starting, though
>>
>>88228804
Sancho is one of the best players for Dortmund this year. Mount is one of the best players in the Championship. They are good but unproven at international level. Would be highly surprised if they actually got onto the pitch
>>
>>88226958

>>88228825
>>88228865
croatia confirmed for lost
>>
>>88228954
Not necessarily true, most of them lack a lot of experience so it could still go either way
>>
>>88228638
good lad, although the game will be absolutely ass
>>
>>88228986
you haven't seen croatia's game against spain, did you? their mandžukić replacement was shit, their defense was lackluster and their goalkeeper couldn't save to save his own life. i know anglos are the #1 experts at choking but not even you can lose against this croatia. it's not like you're san marino or something.
>>
>>88229056
Whenever England wins on paper they lose on the field
>>
>>88229056
>it's not like you're san marino or something.
No but we did hold the record for conceding the fastest goal in world cup qualifying against San Marino
>>
>>88229074
>>88229086
you're being too pessimistic. you're going to win, trust me, i already predicted the winner of wales v spain, poland v portugal and korea v uruguay and got them right.
>>
>>88229139
wales v spain and poland v portugal were easy to predict though
>>
>>88229152
so is england v croatia
>>
>>88229139
>you're being too pessimistic
Welcome to the english mentality. Reason we started getting a bit crazy over the summer is that we started actually beating teams we should do whereas we normally draw or lose to them (Iceland, Costa Rica, Algeria)

to be fair, croatia was the better team until they conceded the first goal, then they gave up
>>
>>88229255
Wished they'd given up against us after conceding the first goal, rather than get better
>>
>>88229312
feels bad man
>>
>>88229334
Doubt we'd have beaten you but it would have been good just to make the final again. And an Imperial Empire bowl would have been mental
>>
>>88226992
It's not competitive lmao just because one or two literal who teams get to qualify for the euros through the backdoor. no one is taking this seriously nor will they ever because its mostly meaningless. Just look at how the managers are treating it

>You're playing Holland and France in a competitive environment. Would you rather have friendlies against Greece and Australia instead or something?
??? England friendlies were usually against top international teams anyway so this point is moot

the actual solution is to get rid of these pointless rounds of International fixtures altogether and expand the number of games in the CL and Europa League. Bring back a second round of CL groups like they had between 2001-2004 which provides an extra 4 matchdays and shift the midweek domestic matchdays to the blank international weekends. *Actual* competitive football between top teams instead of this boring inane International shit
>>
>>88229056
since you dislike kalinic so much, no worries, our 3rd keeper is playing today
>>
>>88227864
it's played on the Rujevica stadium (pic related) in Rijeka, not Kantrida (your pic)
>>
>>88229386
livaković?
>>
>>88229448
Why do you care so much about Croatia, Urubro? Croatian descent or something?
>>
>>88229522
he's the modric obsessed guy
>>
>>88229522
because i like luka
>Croatian descent or something?
no, i'm slavic but not a yugoslav, a west slav actually
>>
>>88229448
yes
>>
>>88229561
Ah. a Pole.
>>
>>88229577
if livaković is your third then who's your second gk? i'm assuming the first is kalinić because subašić left
>>88229593
yes
>>
So this time around nations league ties heavily into the Euro 2020, being used for seeding and serving as extra means of qualification
But what about next season? Will it affect the world cup?
>>
>>88229623
yeah, I still consider Kalinic as 2nd, just because he needs some experience under his belt.
>>
>>88229727
i doubt it
you'll be wrecking san marino for that sweet world cup spot like every year
>>
>>88229409
I realised that after I posted it.
That one has a ridge as well though, so the point stands.
>>
>>88229809
Unless league D teams don't get to qualify and only the higher divisions
