By reading your post I got the impression you thought Jamaica was somewhere in Africa, but obviously not with that reaction.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

um, no. I was implying that the only national squads worse than playing for england, are the ones in the middle of Africa. Aka places where buses get blown up and people get shot.

He'd still be playing at major tournaments though regardless of how slim his chances of winning one would be. What are the chances that Jamaica qualify for a World Cup?

Not the best. Mexico and USA are definitely better than them. They are competing with Costa Rica and Honduras really for 3rd spot and the play offs but they are still even a notch or so below them.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

I am definitely not a fan of players playing for different nationalities. I would never want Arteta to play for England despite how good he is, doesn't sit right for me.

You can then sit there and bring up the old Podolski and Klose debate and how both were born in Poland, but at least Klose moved to Germany at a young age, played for German clubs his whole life and has only played for the German national team, same with Podolski, moved to Germany at a young age, played for German clubs his whole life, and played for the German national team from U17 all the way up.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

being capped in a friendly won't cap-tie a player. Once Sterling, Zaha, Jenkinson etc.. play a World Cup qualifier then they are comitted to England

As for Jamaica's chances, they have a shot at 2014, the problem with them is consistency. They are strong at home but struggle away from home which is why I don't think they will qualify for 2014

There havent been any major breakout stars that emerged from the england squad, zero success, zero trophies. if anything theyre better off shutting down the team until they pull their heads out of their asses.
Doesn't matter, every ambitious player wants to play in the Euro and World Cup. By the way, if you go with Jamaica you need to travel all the damn way every time.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Wouldn't surprise me if Zaha took the cameo appearence tomorrow and then opts with Ivory Coast due to the media over the last two days. It started off so well, getting praised and now he's being compared to Messi, Ronaldo, Maradona and Pele, he's outstanding at taking people on but putting that much pressure on a 20 year old is taking the piss.

Now we also have critics writing him off because he hasn't played in the top flight and are making bold statements such as Stirling is twice the player, but how can they know? As I've said previously, unless you watch Palace every week then there is absolutely no way of knowing how good Zaha is as the championship's coverage is very minimal. Talksport are even comparing goal tallies, for WINGERS! The whole thing has turned from a great thing for both Zaha and Palace, to an absolute circus that will derail Palace's fine season and 25 minutes that will define Zaha's career.

Just pick Ivory Coast, Wilf.
