    What do you mean with playing at full level, PackerFan71 ? Senior National team?
    Because Youth team appearances do not count as much as I know (U17,U21...).

    Edit: Belgium leads 2-0, both goals by Lukaku, Chelsea should give him another chance after this season, I think he has potential. Like his style of playing football.

    Yep senior level or International cap level same thing Nessie. U17 and U21s don't really matter lets be honest they are just there to give the kids a bit of experience.

    Lukaku's doing ok hes coming back next season, the loan will do him good should improve his game and confidence.

    Boy, Ireland's goalie is making some great saves. This game could be a blowout if it wasn't for him.

    O.K., another World Cup Qualifying game day tonight.
    I guess England desperately needs 3 points tonight to qualify for Brazil directly because I expect a win for Ukraine against San Marino.
    Germany against Sweden is more or less a friendly and without Ibrahimovic I dont see Sweden winning against us.
    And I stick by my prediction that Scotland beats Croatia 2-1 ! :tup:

    ... 4-3 Germany, second goal by Schurrle, immediately answered by Swedens 4-3. Crazy game.

    Just goes to show what the right coach can do, if Strachan was in from the start i think we'd have still been in with a chance of the play offs.

    And Schurrle gets the hat trick for Germany. It was fun watching him grinning so much on the pitch. Sweden played well on the break, but they had trouble handling Germany's control.

    Thats only fair, congrats England. ;)
    Whats next ? Here my guess....

    October 2013: England declares themselves as a potential World Cup contender
    November 2013: After having beaten Germany 1-0 in a friendly in London England is convinced to win the WC.
    June 2014: Directly after a 1-4 loss in the round of 16 against Germany the flight back home to London leaves Brazil.

    Why should this World Cup any different ? ;):p

    That match reminds me of the old saying - Offense wins games, defense wins championships.
    Its time to think of changing tactics a little, everybody loves they style we play with our National team but if your opponent always scores two or even three goal its hard to win. No way we would have won the match if we had played Italy. We need to improve our defense.....
