Colombia up 1-0 on Panama at 12’, and the Panama keeper gets called for a penalty- came out on the attacker and got the man, not the ball.

One of many ex-Toffees to make their mark in the summer tourneys, James hits the pen and Panama are in trouble.

fun fact: AORN USA, Canada and Panama are all tied for 31st place in the Elo international football ratings.

Somehow Mexico is 25th.

This is a really good game. Panama is playing aggressively and have strung together some really good sequences. Of course they’re wide open to counters playing that way.

Watching Panama get crushed by Colombia is frustrating. WE should be getting crushed by Colombia.

I’m not even sure of that anymore, in this half I’ve already seen Panama deliver three balls into the box of higher quality than anything we produced over three games.

Uruguay bringing the chippy play right from the start is not fun.

See, as a hockey guy, I really like the physical and occasionally cheap shot nature of Western Hemispheric football. Araujo saw his chance with the ref looking away and got Endrick with a shot- but they type that hurts rather than injures. And I really appreciated Raphinha following up.

He plays with the red mist. Hasn’t yet mastered the dark arts. Team like Brazil fully capable of baiting him into something dumb too. It’s a fine line to walk and he’s got some Pepe in him
I think he’s been well in control with his transgressions so far…knows exactly what he’s doing.

long way to go though lol

Fully agree. He’s in training. Ref probably should have carded him already for overzealous defending but hasn’t so he’s got free reign to continue to be a chaos agent

I think if you’re a Liverpool fan you have to be thrilled with how Darwin looks for his country. The finishing is probably always going to be wasteful. But the indecision and being too sped up in the Prem I thought he showed at times isn’t present here. He’s looked really high class and it looks like if you can get him settled you might get someone who can drive your attack

Oh Darwin ..

The last couple of months of the Prem season he looked a shell of himself - it was like he took all that calming down advice to his whole game and not just the finishing.

You could not get me to ref a match between these two I don’t think there’s any way to “win”. Just non stop aggression and players down grabbing things and no way to know what’s real and fake

I loled.

Araujo busting out the old madden truck stuck on Endrick was top tier shithousery
Didn't know he had that in his bag. International competition always brings it out.

Agreed.
