The Daily Merengue is a place where you can feel free to discuss all things football. Do not be alarmed by the overt RMCF bias. It’s in the name!
Shoutout to the mods who do a fantastic job, Valyrian Steel, KungFuZizou, NeRObutBlanco, Felipejack, and Long Live Juninho!
Happy Thanksgiving to MMers in the US!!

Day Four featured an upset of Germany by Japan, a goalless Croatia draw, a Canadian thriller that ended with controversy, and complete domination by the Luis Enrique-led Spain. Today was a good day for football....but tomorrow should even be better.

I’ll be honest - I planned on doing a player appreciation for Vini or Militao but this Rodrygo interview on the Player’s Tribune just dropped and I had to feature it.
