Draw was made today. Tournament will be played in Feb


World Font Sky Technology Electric blue


Most probably a European club, in this case Chelsea, will win it again.

Last time a South American club won it was Corinthians in 2012.

They are a solid team with more than a few players on the Mexican NT, chief amongst them are Rogelio Funes Mori, Jesus Gallardo, and Cesar Montes. Funes Mori is a tall physical "9" that was a regular with the NT while Raul was out with his fractured skull. Now that Raul is back Funes Mori is his backup. Cesar Montes is a solid central defender (with some Lebanese background). Jesus Gallardo is a winger/back who is given a lot of latitude to move up and down the field. I like him.

The team is coached by Javier (El Vasco) Aguirre who used to coach the NT (and the Egyptian NT as well :D) and has coached several teams in Europe and Asia.

Haven't really followed LIGA MX in a bit so I can't tell you what their tendencies are but Aguirre was a bit of a disappointment with the NT...which seems to be the case while Egypt also :D.

They just got eliminated in the quarters in the LIGA MX playoffs......

Yeah Aguirre was fired after losing at home to South Africa in the 2019 ACN hosted in Egypt where we played badly and the team was heavily criticized. Intriguing to see him against an Egyptian club. Salgado was his assistant at the Egyptian NT btw.

Yeah, 1 great team competing with 7 teams that probably wouldn't make the Conference Mickey Mouse League if they played in Europe.

Some Kiwis (I wonder if Boban made the team) against some news reporters (I assume Al Jazira is Al Jazeera's Sunday league team) in the opening round, should be an interesting and close game.

The only time it was mildly half fun was when you had Real Madrid and United in there together with some Brazilian teams in a group stage thing, but half fun is probably stretching it.

All this Intercontinental Cup/Super Cup/CWC stuff needs binning.

The news channel Al Jazeera is Qatari

The club taking part, Al Jazeera, is from UAE. As the league champions of the host nation.

Same thing I know, like all those Asians looking alike etc...

P.S. Jazeera means Island in Arabic btw
