This Finland kit is what I wish we could have. Except it would be based on the england flag, so the red cross would be central.

I wonder why national flag on the kit is not a lot more common.

The goal should be cancelled tbh. Clear foul

This semi automated offside technology is coming to the Premier League at some point in the middle of the season. That was so quick, like 5 seconds after they'd showed the replay we had the decision and on with the game.

Yes, Gundogan pushed Orban down with his hands, but the Hungarians put up their hands and stopped playing. Very naive, expecting a Dutch ref to blow against the Germans in Germany.

my dear - Varga (former SV Mattersburg player) had a great chance by head. Hungary much better than against Switzerland would deserve one goal at least.

Seeing all these crowd shots takes me back to wondering why Germany are in this kit. You can see the odd one in the crowd if you look closely, but it's otherwise a sea of white.

Don't think so, shoulder to shoulder challenge and German guy was stronger thats all :wink:

No Hungarian player within 5 metres radius of Gundogan, poor defending. Maybe they're a bit better than against the Swiss, but that performance was so low it's difficult to repeat. I'm not impressed by the Germans either, I've expected them to win like 4:0 and play a good game.

Totally objective comment here, no bias at all. :wink:

But I decided to go back on the Iplayer and look, and I think it is ultimately shoulder to shoulder. I think the Hungarian is trying to turn on impact so he's off balance and goes sprawling.

Indeed, I agree.

This was Germany's first test of the tournament and I have seen enough to believe they aren't good enough to win it.

You would think that Scotland need at least a draw tonight otherwise they are already out, because they have a bad gd, but after Croatia - Albania it's not sure that at least four 3rd placed-teams will reach 3 points.

Poland - Austria and Georgia - Czech Republic will be key games for this matter.

You sure? It's not as if the rest of the favourites have lit up the tournament.

don't worry these new kits are the best selling of all ones (the tv commentator just mentioned it at the beginning of this game). They are new on the market and the other white/black ones they already exist long time this could be the reason why you can see still more the white ones
