Aguero89, I was not able to log on earlier, but I would just like to extend my congrats to your team for playing such a dominating game. The best team won and they look very sharp. Hope you can keep it up and represent Europe well in the knock out stage. Perhaps we'll meet again. Hopefully, this will be a good LEARNING experience as our coach J.D. Quesada feels our club should be undergoing. Personally, I would play to win no matter what the circumstances especially during a high-visible tournament such as this.

Hurakan11, I have to agree with your comment that our U-17 is not as good as our U-20 team. But, then again, your Mexico team didn't overpower us when we played you in Mexico a few months back. If I recall right, your team only beat mine by a 1-0 score. If you're team is so superior, you should have no trouble making it to the semifinals like our U-20's did, right? And, when/if you play Turkey, I trust you'll dominate them well enough to beat them.
