You'd be shocked that Kenya would beat any of those teams in Nairobi. Football pitches also play a major role. On the other hand, do you think Pogba for instance would be playing same way he does for France it he had represented Guinea?
Kenya will beat France and Germany if the match is played for 360 minutes. Pogba doesn't even play for the club that pays him the same way he plays for France. The guys is a primadonna and I don't even think he likes playing football.

If Football Matches are played for 360 mins France & Germany will adapt and still soundly lash " small countries "
If the match is played tomorrow, why would it be played for 360 mins. Football is 90 mins.
One thing i detest is the saying " on a good day " this is admitting whomever needs a good day to defeat anyone is greatly inferior

Packerland,

There is a DIFFERENCE.... If you watch the games you will notice that the African game is very physical and the match officials allow those challenges to go on without calls. A player who isn't used to that, will struggle initially. Additionally, the speed can be a lot more. Of course, the ball possession is surely not as adept as the European game.
You mean the African officials that dashed our men and women red cards for tackles.

I just think the difference is not as much as we make it to be. I think the better team finds a way to win at the end Physicality will prevail if the 10 other players are soft. Remember when Arsenal had the likes of Ozil and all other soft a$$ players and they will lose to the likes of Stokes and Wigan. Some of these nations that have skilled finesse players have rugged players too. Brazil and Germany have Casmeiro, Fabinho and Kimmich that can go toe to toe with most rugged African players in terms of physicality. Argentina got some rugged players too when they are not rolling on the ground like they got shot in the face. But I get your point though!

Bros,
I was making jest of those saying that Kenya will beat Brazil and Germany in Nairobi due to physicality and bad pitch. I said unless the match is played for 360 minutes.

You are right. France and Germany will adapt because they study their opponent and make the necessary preparation. This is how they will prepare for Kenya: first they camp out somewhere in their country or somewhere else that have similar weather and pitch like in Kenya. Next, they play countries that are similar to Kenya in a friendly. Lastly, they will increase their fitness level to match their opponents and if possible tweak their formation similar to how Netherland dismantled the Falconets.

You guys just watch the players kick the ball without understanding the dynamics of the game. Aribo has shown not to be an effecttive AM. With iwobi firing all all cylinders, Aribo can only come off the bench if Ndidi is fit. The situation is even worsened with Onyedika showing promise. If he pans out and shows he can partner with Ndidi in the DM role, Aribo will not start many games. He may be resting for this game, but a starting shirt is not guaranteed moving forward if Onyedika pans out and Ndidi regains his form. He is not an effecttive alternative to Iwobi.

Looking at the boys legs and comparing them to any women/girls you know is suspect but hey what ever tickles your fancy.

Agree. His footie iq in terms of movement and ability to read the game is subpar. Very talented but i've not been impressed thus far
