I'll say this to you Belgium, you can pass the ball well enough, there's just no structure. It's like watching England from the late 2000s with the endless zig-zag rugby.

Nice sunny crowd as always, even of course in a big stadium why would seem not much.
Nice to see the opponent players chatting together waiting for the restart :thumb:

What happened to the player? I thought it was about an arm, but the referee immediately said "he has broken his ankle". So probably that; or maybe the knee or the shine bone?

I read to people in the stadium that it's probably tibia and fibula...

FT 47-9

My english skills get worsening. I wanted to write "even if of course in a big stadium they would seem not so much"...

I wish a good recover to Maxime Ghion, hope he was able to hear the stadium ovation for him

Forgive me for making a little joke at your expense (with the risk of sounding pedantic and making mistakes myself) but this is brilliant:

Foot was in touch but this was a hell of a score.

Years ago I thought Goia was going to be a star. Didn’t really have success in France but he only just turned 27. Could be entering his prime.

Had a nasty shoulder injury and decided to go back home, he helps Ordizia doing promotion in schools and assume that's part of a pro deal or as pro as you can be in Liga Heineken. But he's willing to try another time his luck in France before retiring from what I've listened from him on radio shows.

Anyway you're right, he put his foot in touch and he seems to have some spatial problems. Against Russia he misjudged a kick from own 22 too.

Whomever is running the T2 Blog twitter account needs to not criticize fans for giving a retiring player a standing ovation, geeze.
