    Wasn't even aware this was going on right now. I though Beinsports had the rights? I remember watching Pogba, Kongdogbia, Duncan, etc. in the last one.

    Some of these countries are also playing in the Toulalan tournament, which is basically the same age group. That's on bein currently.

    I swear every country that changes their name just make their country sound more lame. Bring back Kampuchea, Ceylon, Siam, and my personal favourite - Zaire


    What the fuck is the Democratic Republic of Congo anyway

    On topic - Fiji? What a waste of space

    No though weve been linked with a few players in the tournament. mammana and kenedy are two that come to mind.

    i also forget to mention i was quite impressed by serbias goalkeeper and captain, rejkovic. he showed a lot of personality. reminded me a lot of peruzzi as a player.

    i watched austria panama out of boredom, but it has got to be the dirtiest game i have watched this year. panama got 2 red cards, one player saved a shot suarez style with a blatant handball, punched austria player in the stomach and no card, another one assaulted an austria player who was near the box. practically every single challenge they made was malicious. jesus christ. i felt like i was watching MMA, not the u20 world cup.

    argentina ghana finished 2-3 for ghana. few thoughts:

    how is humberto grondona, julio's son, argentina's u20 coach? thats corrupt as hell. its also clear he has no idea what he is doing. argentina are really disorganized and play badly considering the technical ability they have in the team. ghana were 3 nil up until really late in the game, when simeone scored, and then argentina got another goal in stoppage time.

    mammana, the defender we've been linked to, is really elegant. whenever he does something successfully, its pure class. he is also amazing with the ball at his feet and has a good touch. he didnt have a good game today but his teammates were nowhere to be found. a lot of his style and place in their team reminds me a lot of ranocchia at inter in all honesty, especially in terms of damage control. he did not have such a good game today, read the game poorly on a few occasions. and even though he did not make the foul that drew the penalty (for ghana's third goal), he was responsible for the PK. gave the ball away just outside of the box and mistimed his tackle which created space in the box for ghana's player (who was then fouled). he is also fairly slow. theres a lot of talent there and it needs good coaching. i can see the ayala comparisons ive been reading about but from this one game i dont think he is ready for inter at all.

    giovanni simeone, diego's son, is a pure poacher. really hardworking but he literally can't do anything with the ball at his feet. barely touched the ball the entire game even though he scored. his goal was a fluke more than anything else. i dont like him. also, argentina's goalkeeper batalla made many great saves. argentina was really disappointing today and reacted too late in the game. the whole team did not play well.


    ghana's captain aboagye who plays for udinese has a great touch. donsah of cagliari had a really solid game, as did yeobah who is really fast. ghana play with a fuckload of pace and strength up front which allowed them to counter really easily and quickly. i didnt see much individual quality but they took advantage of a really disorganized argentina side who barely did anything right. the scoreline could have been a lot worse.

    African teams always do so well at the youth world cups. How come we always see Nigeria and Ghana but never Ivory Coast in the youth tournaments?

    The Ivory Coast qualified in 1997 and 2003. If you think about it, the country just finished their golden generation of talent so this makes sense.

    Keep in mind Drogba, perhaps their best player ever, was a notoriously late bloomer. He wasn't any good during his youth career.
