New Zealand Qualify

“Friendly internationals are a contradiction in terms presenting a problem in my mind. You’re expected to perform and get a result, yet it does not really matter.”
-Roy Keane

Saturdays in November should be for Premiership, La Liga, Bundesliga, Le Championnat and Serie A games, not international friendlies where teams make unlimited substitutions and play in neutral countries due to money.

Do you really want to watch Slovakia verses USA reserves?

How about a Darren Bent led England verses Brazil? Or Wales second string verses Scotland?

No, me neither.

Luckily, there are some World Cup play-offs on show.

Egypt v Algeria

Ireland v France

Portugal v Bosnia.

Lastly, I want to congratulate New Zealand for qualifying for the World Cup today. The last time they qualified was in Spain 1982. They played Brazil and lost 5-2 in what was one of the best Brazilian teams that never won the tournament. I hope this is a good omen.

Keep it Arsenal
