Mkhitaryan's goal - beauty

Awesome goal but Denmark is still playing Dennis Rommedahl wtf that guy is like 50 years old. No wonder this team got owned.

Remember when Kennedy Bakircioglu was the GOAT player in Football Manager. All credits to those FM scouts, they are legit.

Remember when Freddy Adu was going to lead USMNT to the world cup and was wanted by real madrid and manchester united?

Scouts f*ck up all the time.

Of course FM gets it wrong loads of time, but at the same time they uncover loads of gems years before anyone else had heard of them. Lewandowski for example wasn't even a star with Poland's U21s, only playing 3 friendly matches and not featuring for the full international team for a long time. FM still had him and Falcao becoming two of the top strikers in the world, even when Falcao was still at River Plate and seemingly never going to reach his potential.

To be fair, there was a ridiculous amount of hype surrounding Adu a decade or so ago. Heard all sorts of rumours when he was 14 about the likes of Inter, Real Madrid, Man Utd wanting him. He actually turned down Inter I believe when he was 10.

Highlights against Panama: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbusE...ature=youtu.be

That assist from Cameron to set up Johnson's goal was gorgeous.

They're not as good as people thought they were and they're horrible at breaking down defenses. Their attack revolves around Chicharito who is useless outside the box and can't pass at all.

Mexico is just a garbage can in terms of footballers.

Jozy Altidore has been playing like a Complete Striker/Forward.

Well the only way that could be possible is by comparing US in 2009 at the confed cup and this years mexico at the confed cup, since you know both teams can't be at the tourny at the same time. Something tells me Mexico won't do as good tho

Real talk though, Chicharito has been terrible the last few games. His passing is so bad and he's not a threat from distance.

Enjoy watching Mexico play in the Confederations Cup. You can thank USA's shitty defense and Gio Dos Santos' spectacular goal.



F*cking classic.
