Just like computer games...there are minimum specs and recommended specs
"Every gun that's made; every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies a THEFT from those who hunger and are not fed and those who are cold and are not clothed.”....Dwight Eisenhower

Denmark has the longest undefeated streak of any team in FIFA: 17 (9 victories).

Sorry, what was that? France cannot hear you with its World Cup trophies stuck in its ears.
If we can hit that bull's-eye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate!

I watched the France - Denmark draw in Moscow. France can fuck off until I get my money back from that snooze fest.

Wait, are you counting Croatia as part of that streak? Because that is...not cool.

Well, the betting companies count it as a draw. :P

Germany, Iceland, Poland and Croatia relegated from League A
Denmark, Ukraine, Bosnia and probably Russia is promoted.

I'm kinda liking this Nations League as I wouldn't have given a thought about friendlies this time of the year.

By my calculations this result should give us a better seeding for both the EC and WC qualifier and a 2nd change at the EC in march 2020.

 :nelson: Netherlands scored a late equaliser against Germany eliminating France for the final four tournament in Portugal.
Germany really dominated, even scored, except for the last 10 minutes. Germany relegated into Group B.
Now Portugal, in a meaningless game since they are already qualified, cannot lose against Poland, otherwise Germany will drop onto the group of second seeds for the Euro 2020 qualifiers.   :lol:
