VIVA MEXICO CABRONES!!
VIVA MEXICO
A big surprise but well done to Mexico! The Mexicans look strong and have a bright future in football! I hope Dos Santos finally leaves Spurs to find a regular playing time club and its about time for Fabian to move to European club don't you think?

Congrats to mexico for wining the gold (even thought I was supporting Brasil). their coach really knew what he was doing as Mexico not only was able to limit Naymer possession of the ball but also preventing Brasil from creating a lot of dangers attacks with their low block fomentation while still creating their own chances. There was a time that Brasil looked liked the might change the result around because of Mano put in Hulk who not only showed some of his explosive pace and shots but is also put pressure on Mexican player with the ball a times and with Oscar moving in to a "10 " position in the middle but I think that Brasil did not exploit this fact enough and many time would pass the ball to the left wing or would passed the ball in to areas that where way to crowd and marked by Mexican players. On the other hand Mexican's coach did notice this and put PONCE M into the game which not only created less space for both Hulk and Oscar but also seem to result in Mexico creating more counter attacks. even more so when Mano made the mistake of taking out Sandro for Pato. Pato a great player and when you losing you do wanna add more attacking player but putting more forward up front dose not necessarily mean that more chances are going to be created, if anything this totally unbalance the team and Oscar was forced to move more back causing Brasil to lose that creativity in middle-field and allowing Mexico to push up. Any ways Mexico has a pretty talented team that not only has great individual talented players but that know how to work together

I'm wondering why Italy didn't send their Olympic team?Can anyone explain to me how does the qualification work?
For men's tournament, 16 teams from each continent are qualified from their respective continental preliminary competition. Italy competed in the 2011 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship qualification, which they lost to Belarus in the play-offs. As a result Italy failed to progress to the actual championship and ultimately, did not qualify to the London Olympics.

I am really worried about Kim Chang Soo and Jung Sung Ryong's conditions. Cracked bone (Kim) and what appears to be a dislocated shoulder (Jung). I especially hope the GK can make a return for the upcoming match(es). Brazil is definitely a strong side and Kroea can't afford to miss out on their top players... still will be a fun match to watch. Korea has been playing well this tournament, apart from their appalling finishing. Nevertheless, I believe in the team. Korean Pride!
