guys

after the world cup, Iceland Hero Coach Heimir Hallgrímsson resigned to devote himself to dentistry. He was replaced by Erik Hamrén

 

Erik Hamrén has been in charge of the Sweden national team for the past seven years. Sweden sucked for the past seven years. Tons of Swedish fans claimed that Hamrén is an incredibly bad choice for Iceland

 

Today Iceland played their first game under Hamrén and duly got 6-0d by Switzerland

 

I fear that the sagas might be over :emo:

turks and caicos islands have the following coat of arms:

 

693px-Coat-of-arms-of-the-Turks-and-Caic

 

a++, I especially like the fact that they took care to include the entire gross snail that inhabits the conch and also something that's either a badminton shuttle or a green ghost wearing a very large condom on its head.

 

also more coats of arms should be flanked by flamingos and also the colouring of the helm makes it look like a chivalric dolphin, really I feel this should get included in the coat of arms hall of fame with mozambique and north korea

"We want to test ourselves against the best," he told a pre-match news conference.

 

"It is very rare since 1970 we have beaten those top teams. Ideally over the next couple of years we want to get a record of beating top teams."

 

You go Gareth, show them swamp Granadians some King and Country, wot

Jonathan David, Lucas Cavallini and Cyle Larin each scored twice Sunday, helping Canada open its CONCACAF Nations League qualifying campaign with a record 8-0 win over the outmatched U.S Virgin Islands.

It marked the Canadian men's biggest win, surpassing a 7-0 victory in St. Lucia in October 2011. And it marks only the second time a Canadian men's team has ever scored more than five goals.

Even a better scoreline than Curacao managed against the U.S. Virgin Islands

 

Clearly, we're going places

personally I think it's incredibly hilarious that spain can beat croatia 6-0 but they got nowhere at the world cup because of ridiculous last minute coach drama
