    What was the dispute about?

    Looking at the result they did alright.

    It was/is a conflict about commercial rights in regards to the Danish FA and the individual players. A bit of a shit-show, really.

    Apparently futsal players can park a reasonable enough bus - at least if the opposition is as toothless as Slovakia were last night, all things considered.

    This year is a little different because of the UEFA Nations League which starts today with the most focused game being Germany against France.

    Of course it remains to be seen whether this NL thingy will garner more interest or not.

    Yeah you’re right.. it’s good they are trying to make the games have more purpose. I just can’t see myself watching them can you?

    The only internationals I ever watch outside of tournaments is if two big teams are playing and I’ve got nothing else to do at all lol

    I will definitely try to watch Germany vs. France but yeah, just because it is NL and there is somewhat of purpose in these "friendlies" there are still a lot of crappy games.

    What I don't understand is why there are still non-NL friendlies being played between European NT teams, for example Austria vs. Sweden, and Portugal vs. Croatia today. Why are they not participating in the UEFA Nations League?

    Yeah that’s odd.. not sure on that one I haven’t read much about it.

    Don't think I'll watch any of them. Maybe Croatia Portugal if I manage to.

    It's hard to get motivated to watch them so soon after the WC too.

    Same starting lineup bar Lloris.

    Hope Dembele gets some game time later on.

    Joachim Lw staying as a Germany coach will haunt them in 2020 and 2022.

    Now is the time to play Brandt, San, Sle, Tah, Havertz and ter Stegen, but he's too loyal to his senior players and narrow-minded to find a system suiting their young talents that should be the priority for 2020 and 2022.

    It's a disgrace that Mller is still starting for them. Same with Ginter and one of Boateng and Hummels should be out too. Perhaps even both as they're constantly injured and becoming unreliable.

    Yeah that Germany team is dying for a overhaul.

    Should have been a wakeup call after the WC disaster and yet here we are and Low just doesn't want to change shit.

    Quite conservative lineups. Expected this.
