There are two sides to the coin that is Group G. You have England and Belgium, who know all about the occasion, and are striving to match the considerable potential of their talent. Then there’s the novices, Tunisia and Panama. 2018 will be a new chapter in both countries' footballing
“Two hours ago you all felt s***. Now hopefully you all feel better. This is just the start for us. We will play in many more finals.”
Jürgen Klopp’s rallying cry may have fallen on the deaf ears of his crestfallen Liverpool squad the night of the Europa League final, but
What’s that saying again? “In this world, nothing is certain, except death, taxes, and Germany doing well at international tournaments”. Well not quite, but it’s something like that.
