Hungary & Croatia conquer football superpowers...Russia falls to listless Germans

Hungary and Croatia obliterated regional football superpowers in a clash of titans rarely seen at the world level.

Hungary blasted home two smashing goals at home against what many experts consider the strongest south-Finnic football superpower in quite some time. And in doing so Hungary ensured a place in group 2 in the nations league. Hungary coming off a successful 2016 Euro Cup where they bested the Euro Cup winner - Portugal - and choosing to skip the world cup in 2018 as a protest against totalitarian EU refugee policies have returned to the world stage with a vengeance.

Croatia couldn't help but do what they do best, just beating yet another superpower - this time Spain - dominating them from start to finish. It was a thrilling game as the two teams battled for most of the game tied 2-2 but then as if to erase any doubt as to who was the other Central-Eastern European superpower on that day, Croatia made sure to stun the Spaniards with one of the most elegant goals in recent memory. The ball bounced elegantly off a post or someone's leg and dropped fortuitously in front a surprised Hrvat who gracefully booted it home.

Meanwhile Russia got humiliated in front of a laughing German crowd. Russia could only watch as German punk teens took three uncontested dumps in the Russian net. The teens were then subbed out so they could go home and do homework.

That's right Russia lost to that. The same joke of a German team that lost to North Korea in the 2018 world cup.

ARPAD, I was thinking of you when I included something on my website, the spectacular battle of Pozsony (July 4-6, 907), Hungary's "Independence Day". Bentex and Ferenc Puskas overall inspired me to put up this website, and you inspired me to write about the battle.

I lead it off with you in mind. But you know the true Arpad never really fought any major battles, he was the Moses, the real mastermind was an enigmatic, brilliant unknown Hungarian commander that day.

Check it out here Arpad: MagicalMagyars , its on the homepage, the full website's almost finished.

Oh by the way, we're going to romp over Finland on Sunday!

We have the Sword of God/Sword of Mars buried somewhere in Magyarorszag.

We were once the "Lords of War", we were once the "Lords of Football", we once owned Hollywood, have all the Pulitzers, have the most weighted medals per capital all-time in the Olympics, we have the best classical musicians, and the greatest politicians, and Magyarorszag is truly The lush Eden.
