  1. Terrible news. One of my favorite players. Just purchased his German Team Jersey.

    So many players getting hurt! I feel that too many games are players during the season with cups, CL, EL, etc. No matter how in shape a player is, human body and only take so much.

    I’ve also seen some nasty uncalled for tackling in some the friendlies being played. No need for that either.

    1. Personally, I think something needs to be done about these friendlies before the World Cup. They’re too much of a risk for teams. For example, I’m concerned that England will pick up another injury or two against Honduras. The Central American team plays with a very physical style that England will not appreciate, particularly in a friendly.
