Busy summer for youth football. I really enjoy following the big tournaments to see some new exciting players and a lot of quality games.

Caught two matches of the U17. Italy won 12 matches in a row including France in the semis, but lost to Netherlands in the final 4-2. Don't know any of these players of course but the hype man for Italy was S. Esposito, while the top scorer overall was Aouchiche from France. Netherlands deserved winners in that final.

At the moment the U20 WC is going on, much better level ofc. Watching Argentina-Mali right now on extra time, very nice match. Sadly now Mali are 1-2 down due to an own goal by Diaby. Argentina's striker who also shone in the Sudamericano last year (hat trick vs Venezuela) is a 1.90m CF called Adolfo Gaich "El Fuhrer del gol". Yes this is a real nickname in Argentina that commentators say. He scored his third goal of the tournament tonight.

Winner plays Italy, QFs are in the weekend.

The best youth tournament by far for european teams is imo the U21 Euro. Last one (2017) was great. I remember posting about Ceballos, Lobotka & Skriniar, Bernardeschi, etc. This edition starts in 2 weeks.

Damn. Thanks for posting, I almost missed this game.

U21 Euros are very interesting, last German win of the tournament was very surprising, and impressive.
I remember how much I liked Pellegrini then.

Much more interesting than the Women's WC to me, personally.

Also remembering how good Ceballos was already 2 years ago, incredible how Real bought him just to ruin him.
Unbelievable that this talent doesn't get to actually play. He needs to get out of Real ASAP.

Ceballos hasn't been ruined. He's still great every time he plays. Zidane just prefers more the more technical and pleasing-to-watch players like Vazquez and Casemiro etc.

Caldara, he went straight to Milan. Looks great but got a season ending injury so we will see him again next season.

Mancini is (like Caldara before him) the CB of Atalanta. Next in line for the NT defense after Romagnoli probably.

I remember us chatting here during the Italy-Spain match when Ceballos ran the show. I said then that Madrid was a mistake. Too much talent to be sitting on the bench for a whole season.

Oh right it's the one Juve gave away to get back Bonucci

Let's be honest, Juve's squad strategy has been absolutely horrible in recent years, is it to do with Marotta leaving?

Was it that the Italy U21 CB pairing two years ago was Rugani and Caldara?

That's why I was so puzzled that Jjuve got rid of the other one so effortlessly

In recent years Juve's squad strategy built a CL finalist team that has won consecutive scudettos so no, if we are being honest it has been great. It also got us a bunch of young players to ensure smooth transitions, and a Ronaldo.

Every deal we made in recent years was sanctioned by Marotta. This is the first summer with Paratici as boss.

Yes that was the pairing. We had Chiellini, Benatia, Barzagli and Rugani, and had the opportunity to bring Bonucci back. So they gave Caldara to Milan as part of the Higuain/Bonucci deal. Hopefully it was a correct bet.

^ and caldara at milan has been injured almost the whole season.. first half of the season gattuso said like he didnt want to put too much pressure on caldara.

next season it could change because, milan has been getting rid of old players. paolo seems to rate caldara really high and speaks high of him and under new manager this could change though
caldara is legit though

Jovic killing a promising counter for Serbia. Confirmed scrub.

edit: Now Austria hits the post, then another player scores from the rebound. 0-1

Yep. Sent off. Bamba has to be stretchered off

Aouar sends the pen against the post

France can't convert the second penalty in this game, still 1:0 England
