It’s time, you guys, for half a billion International Friendlies - and I guess some are not so friendly, like the UEFA Nations League?! So we’ve got a ton of games going on, on the international front. This will serve as your one thread to discuss all of the games for today!

Such great timing, these international games. You thought we were in a good place, didn’t you? What, what the nine out of nine possibly points so far in the league with very minimal injuries (Hi Vallejo) and coming off nicely against Leganes. Welp, just in time to ruin everything are a bunch of semi-meaningless games and a brand spanking new UEFA tournament right before we take on Athletic Bilbao, Sevilla, and oh yeah, start our Champions League campaign.

But, don’t get wrong, we all love international games! Players and fans alike get a chance to feel some national pride and we get to enjoy more football because of it. And UEFA makes more money. We all win!

We are going to try to have a match thread each day, and it is particularly hard to find one easy list of everyone who is playing - so the “article” portion will probably be a bit vague until we can get our hands on a good list to share with you. We’re working on it!
