People are overreacting to the Khedira injury. I think it is good thing for Germany in that it finally forces them to rotate their pivot and get Bender & Gundogan deployed more often. Both are supreme talents and arguably better footballers. I am really hoping one of them ends up at Arsenal to replace Mikel Arteta in the next couple of years.

Overall, it is a tough loss for sure and I hope he makes a swift recovery, but it by no means hurts Germany's status as favorites IMO.

Cleverley starting for England.

Remember when someone used the argument "he starts for England and United so they must know something you don't" regarding a certain player. Wonder if they have the same opinion now.

TIL Costa Rica suck. Promising start to Ange's tenure as manager though.

The problem is neither Bender or Gundogan is a like for like switch with Khedira. His importance is tied to his ability to play well with Schweinstaiger and I don't think either Gundogan or Lars Bender will match that, at least right away.

Sami Khedira is so underrated. He is really valuable to both Real Madrid and Germany. He is an immense lost for both club and country.

Anyone think that France can overcome and make it to the World Cup?

If they play like they did the other night, no.

Egypt are up 1-0. I think going down 6-1 in the first leg will be too much to overcome but I'd like to see them get a good result.

That draw really screwed them.

I agree it was a pretty harsh draw after going undefeated in the group stage. They should've been in pot one but these are the types of teams they would see in the World Cup.
