Another issue of the Daily Merengue!

Real Madrid

Hola Madridistas!

The Open Thread/Daily Merengue is a place where you can discuss anything and everything related to football. Feel free to discuss the topics presented here, or start your very own discussions! The Open thread will be posted every day by one of the mods: Valyrian Steel, Felipejack or Oscnar.

Sergio Ramos in Spain’s Win

Sergio Ramos had a great performance in Spain’s 1-0 victory over Switzerland. As Matt Wiltse reported, Ramos had 8 recoveries, won 8/10 of his 50/50 duels, completed 11/12 long balls, and had 93% passing accuracy. Spain’s next game is tomorrow against Ukraine.

Casemiro and Rodrygo played for Brazil

Casemiro played the full 90 minutes in Brazil’s 5-0 victory over Bolivia while Rodrygo entered in the second half. It will be interesting to see if Rodrygo will have another chance play against Peru tomorrow (Casemiro is very likely to start again).

Kroos in Germany’s victory

Kroos featured 90 mins in the Germany’s 2-1 win over Ukraine. Incredibly, Germany had not won any of the prior six fixtures in the League of Nations. Germany takes on Switzerland tomorrow.

Valverde almost scored a goal

Valverde played the entire game in Uruguay’s 2-1 win over Chile. Valverde almost scored a goal, but the ball hit the bar. He is very likely to play tomorrow when Uruguay take Equador.

Real Madrid Feminino Draw with Valencia

Real Madrid Feminino continue to pursue their first victory in this season. In the first game of the season, Las Blancas suffered a bad loss to Barcelona. In the latest game, they drew 1-1 with Valencia. The next opportunity is with Rayo Vallecano in the weekend.

That Odegaard performance though!!

Maybe these international breaks are not so bad after all. The young playmaker contributed two assists in the Erling Haaland show. He looks to have rediscovered some of that sparkle that earned him a callback by Zidane. You can catch these assists here !!
