I have mentioned LB George Kyriakopoulos several times on this forum; he is a very likeable football player imo! After several great seasons at US Sassuolo, he was loaned to Bologna FC 1909, where he did not do that well, but, since being loaned to AC Monza, he has been doing greatly again! So, he has been called to the national team for the friendly against Germany! He is 28 years old and he has 7 apps in total with the Greek national team.
Sassuolo has been relegated, so it will be interesting to see what he will do next!

The national teams of Turkmenistan and Greenland will play a friendly match in Antalya

https://turkmenportal.com/en/blog/78643 ... in-antalya

"Football players of the Turkmenistan national team will play a friendly match with the Greenland team on June 1 in Antalya (UAE). Turkmenportal was informed about this by the Football Federation of Turkmenistan." (NOTE: Antalya is in Turkey not UAE).

Of course, Greenland recently applied to join CONCACAF. There is a BBC article on this: "https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/arti ... 77j6j53n5o"

"Greenland is unable to join Uefa because the European governing body only admits countries recognised by the United Nations, but there is no such requirement for Concacaf."

Scotland are having trouble hitting the target against Gibraltar. 0-0 HT, a one sided game, 20 shots to 1, but they've only put 2 on target.

Looks like Scotland went for quality not quantity in the second half. Only 5 shots, but they put 4 on target and scored 2.

0-0 HT. Very fringe England team as we put those players to the test to see who should be cut. We've been the better team, but not created much. Rather slow tempo. Feels like a friendly alright.

It's been a much more focused England performance in the second half, winning a succession of corners, and a penalty for a blatant shirt pull...

England have been working hard all through the second half, and Alexander-Arnold scores a beautiful goal, from a tight angle with his first touch into the netting behind the post. 2-0 and well deserved! :applause:

England have been racking up the corners and we at last score from one, Kane doing well getting on the end of a rebound, 3-0! :smile1:
