    Good to see our lad scoring - sure Barca will only increase their interested!

    I noticed Honduras had 2 sent off which didn't help but still to lose 12-0...

    Meanwhile Uruguay beat New Zealand so it's more Oceanic opposition for Cucho to hopefully fill his boots against. Norway on the other hand look likely to be on the plane home despite this remarkable game

    Norway were already 7-0 up before the first sending off, and 12-0 before the second.

    Colombia handed a decent draw for the last 16 - getting New Zealand. If they beat NZ they get either Ukraine or Panama (most likely Ukraine). All good news for Cuchos goal record and the all important work permit.
     
  6. He's been in Spain 2 years, doesn't he now qualify for a Spanish passport?

    No Spaniards are getting through our borders after Brexit. #takebackcontrol.

    In all likelihood a yes reids. Honduras have been shocking in this tournament. I would expect better of them despite CONACAF qualification being a bit of a joke. NZ have been impressive with a scattering of juniors playing in European academies. Notably the Dutch diaspora there have produced three of their players. Not an easy game for Colombia.

    The GF is out tonight so was looking forward to watching Colombia in their quarter-final. Turns out they played at 2.30PM and I missed it. Not a clue how Cucho and Alvarado (back in the team after his suspension) played, but they lost 1-0 to Ukraine.

    Crazy game between South Korea and Senegal.

    Koreans equalised in the 98th minute of normal time then Senegal score in the 120th minute to take the game to penalties.

    Latter go 2 up in the shoot out but end up losing 3-2 with the vital winning kick having to be re-taken!

    Enjoyed the Italy v Mali game.

    Pity Mali had a player sent off but fair play to them they equalised twice with 10 men and had a last minute penalty saved.

    Ended 4-2 to Italy.
