    What friendly? Canada? That was a WC qualifier they played Tuesday.

    Or are you talking about something else. Euros are fun, but I have no dog in the fight. Now that the 1st 2 CONCACAF qualifiers are history, they'll pick up & finish this round starting on September 7th and play through October, I'll pay more attention to the European Championship. Great entertainment, but that's it.

    Reunited with Anelka while there, too. Very sad to him leave, but he'd been with Chelsea for 8 years, so I can see why he was ready to move on after the CL win. Chinese league has quite a few big names now. Not sure how many of them are still in top form, but it makes for an impressive line-up.

    Juan Mata was also given permission to play for the Spanish Olympic team in London (since he'd miss part of Chelsea's summer training camp), so lots of and from my end.

    One family's obsession with youth soccer. It's quite a neat little story so I thought I would share.

    France in imploding again after their Euro 2012 exit. Several players face disciplinary action for various reason, but the worst seems to be Samir Nasri who threatened a reporter.

    Some are, but, according to the link, baseball is still king in Cuba.

    NJL (...even though the Marlins are killing the sport in Cuba's largest city: Miami......)

    ^Scary! Even more so, since he apparently was at the hospital earlier this week and was given the all-clear.

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/b...e-blog-27-june

    Eusebio has found himself in the same predicament as Sid. However, happily, the building that the Portugal legend has been turfed out of is the hospital, and the letter in his hand was a clean bill of health. Eusebio was admitted to hospital after falling ill on the weekend. "He had a very good night. Today he was physically and mentally able so he was discharged by the medical team," said a hospital spokesman.

    Eusébio flew back to Lisbon but he went straight to the hospital again where he is staying for surveillance. Apparently what happened to him was a bit more serious than it was reported at first but now he is recovering well.

    Just a few notes:

    1. David Beckham did not get the nod to play for England in th Olympics.
    2. France is looking for a new NT coach. Didier Deschamps is rumored to be next in line for the job.
    3. Italy returned home to a rowdy welcome from a few fans. Even Super Mario smiled and mixed with fans and reporters. LOL But of course the best homecoming was saved for Spain.
    4. Transfer season is in full swing and amount those rumored to be on the move are; John Terry, Hugo Lloris, Maicon, Alan Dzagoev, Joao Moutinho.
    5. Andre Villas Boas is Spurs newest manager.
    6. Who may not be moving however is Robin Van Persie.
    7. Torres is Euro 2012 golden boot winner with three goals.

    Stiffing Beckham for the likes of Giggs, Bellamy and Richards is an insult to David IMO. Him not making the team HAS to be personal, and not based upon what's best for the team.

    In other news related to David, there are rumblings that the LA Galaxy have touched base with Frank Lampard of all people. Not sure how Frank would fit into the Galaxy salary structure, but it might mean a permanent transfer of Landon to Everton.

    Welcome back Henry! I totally agree about the snub to Beckham. I feel so bad for him but some rumors say they want to make him flag bearer so I hope that happens.

    Clint Dempsey is rumored to be worth $10m and is looking to leave Fulham when his contract is over. He wants to play in the CL so good luck o him. Arsenal is rumored to be interested.

    I agree the Beckham snub doesn't make much sense. It would be one thing if Britain went the same route as the Spanish team who said they didn't want any significantly older players. Giggs and Bellamy are both over 30, so that wasn't what they were going for...Very odd.
