Abdoun? Honestly? He was poor at City.
I like this tournament, last time Italy featured, we got to the final with the likes of Barzagli and Maggio and lost 2-0 in the final. I also remember Argentina beating England 7-0 and C.Ronaldo when he was 17, the summer before he joined United, ripping this tournament apart.

Anyway, Italy squad is announced on friday. As this is an olympic prep. tournament, it is U23 supposedly. So probably the Italy fringe olympic team will be called.
Too bad Italy law is so idiotic we won't see Mario over there..

ah well, atleast Giovinco..

Toulon without Portugal and Spain is definitely not the same thing.
Well this year it has Italy instead ;)

In any case, I hope France win today, I bet on them :thumbsup: Should be a good tournament all the same.
It'll be interesting to see what Chile can produce this year, they have some interesting players coming up.
yeah, i think this will be pretty interesting tbh...
Japan looked alright in the first half v Holland... decent match up until then. As usual, the only bad thing about the tournament is the crappy atmosphere in the stadium.
Is Katikani playing for Japan?
France settled down a bit after making it 2-0 but scored here in the beginning of the second half. Great breakthrough and superb header, no chance for poor Toselli.
France just scored the third one at the beginning of the second half. 3-1 now.
Ricardo Faty sent off for a tackle on Moralez, now let's see how Chile will react to it.

Stupid tackle.

Great freekick by Villanueva and Martínez scores on a header, very good finish.

Should be interesting to see how the rest of this game will be now.
