FIFA Summer Tournaments Thread

Feel free to discuss any tournament happening this summer, whether it be Copa America, Gold Cup, AFCON, or the Women’s World Cup.

But i really wanted to start this thread by telling y’all that our boy Quincy just put the Netherlands thru to the UEFA Nations League Final!

Quincy’s speed was crucial in Holland’s win. We need that speed as well, so keeping Quincy would be a wise thing to do. Lopetegui could use him well in a potential 4-3-3 I suppose (but even in a 4-2-3-1).

I hope he gets the start in the finals. I like that Netherlands team. Lots of young quality.

Carlos Fernández, on loan at Depor, scored a brace in their 4-2 win vs Málaga in the 1st leg of the Segunda playoff SF. 2nd leg to be played on Saturday.

Don’t know where my interest lies there… do i go for Depor cause he’s there, or do i go for Málaga to have more Andalusian teams in La Liga next season? :woozy_face:

Just realized that Banega didn’t make the Argentina squad for the Copa. He was probably their most important player in the World Cup in my opinion. I was surprised to see him not included.

U-21 UEFA finals up now. Germany vs. Spain. Nothing of note related to Sevilla, but should be a good rematch from 2 years ago.

Spain won it this time after losing in the final vs. Germany as well the year before.

Big one in Copa America tonight with Brazil vs. Argentina. Any thoughts on that one?

I want Argentina to win this Copa America (or the next year’s edition) only because of Messi. He deserves a title with the national team, though his teammates there are almost always crap.

I’ve gotten tired of laughing at the Argentina squad… they really have no noteworthy defenders, except maybe Tagliafico. But funny enough, it’s been the supporting cast aiding Messi throughout this tournament. I would like to see Lionel lift a major trophy for his country though.

Tough task beating Brazil at home though. But anything can happen in a derby…
