good luck to any of the non-white teams playing in Poland…

It’s actually been quite the decent tournament to watch so far.

After watching the Olyroos in the U23 Qualifiers earlier this year you really start to notice how far behind we are.

New Zealand are having a good tournament by the looks of it.

They’re playing very well, a lot of confidence in defence and some real swagger in attack.

This video is pretty remarkable:

Yes the defending and keeping was terrible, but 9 goals at any level is pretty astonishing.

Thats a fairly random looking bunch of teams there. Fascinating stuff.

Gutted Mali were knocked out in the quarters…

Tue that, though they did great to get that far.

Odds on those two making the final at the start of the tournament?

Italy was given 15/1 odds at the start of the tournament to win.

South Korea doesn’t even register for the tournament win but from what I could see they were 1000/1 to win the tournament at the Quarter Final stage.
