Re: Average Hieght of WC Squads. Ghana tell it ain't so...

Why are Ghanaians so short compared to other west Africans? I find it intriguing, given that Nigerians are generally very tall, not to talk of Senegalese. Further to the east, Cameroonians are similar to Nigerians, and my eye-sight evidence would indicate Ivorians who share boundary with Ghana aren’...

Re: [WC 2022 ]Tunisia vs Australia (0-1) FT

African countries are pathetic. They are losing to everyone. They are even losing to Australia, and it is not rugby we are talking about.

Re: [WC 2022] ARGENTINA 1 (Messi) MEXICO 0

:D Never a good idea to use a short keeper. A taller keeper probably pushes that ball over. Like Uzoho :taunt: He isn't short! He is very slow! Ochoa's height got him in trouble. Another inch on both goals could have made all the difference. I wanted Argentina out, over to you Poland, get them out....

Argentina will win the group and Mexico will beat the Saudis to second place.

Placement more than power did it for Messi. A lot for African strikers to learn from.

Argentina not looking as solid as I thought, pre-tournament. They may well be going home earlier than the African contingent.

It won’t surprise me. You can’t do much in that country without bribing first.

Re: [WC 2022] FRANCE 0 DENMARK 0

If Christiansen were playing for an African team, the ref would have given him his marching orders, no question asked. And VAR would not have intervened.

Re: Cameroonians on site, is it true that Swiss star Breel Embolo's father's house in Younde was attacked?

Apparently, the father divorced the mother when Breel was young and was not taking care of his children. The mother did whatever she had to do to get herself and the children to Switzerland. Now Cameroonians blame the father for Embolo ending up in Switzerland and are taking their frustrations on him.

Re: [WC 2022] Switzerland vs Cameroon(1-0) FT

Reading Cameroun media, it appears police had to protect Embolo’s family home in Yaoundé to avoid angry Camerounese burning the one down for Embolo daring to score for his country Switzerland against his home of birth, Cameroun.

Re: [WC 2022] ENGLAND 0 USA 0 FT

The USA in my view outplayed England. Once again, England shows it is not a Tier 1 European side. Stiff, hoofing, no creativity, and, as usual, nobody to lead at a world class level. The USA has clearly improved. Better than my expectations. We're still short of being a team that can consistently g...

Now this game gives me perspective. I cross out England from the favorites list. Top tier to me now is: Brazil, Spain, France, Argentina, and perhaps Portugal. You’re picking names not teams.

Re: [WC 2022] Switzerland vs Cameroon(1-0)

This was a very disappointing performance. Song literally gave the advantage to Switzerland by taking off two of his most lively and agressive players. That game in my opinion needed another attacking midfielder because Cameroon was putting the center defenders under pressure especially the #4. The...
