If you thought Canada's 11-0 win yesterday was a massacre, Japan beat Mongolia 14-0, pumping in three in added time just for shits and giggles.
To be fair ...

Oof, Sabo. That one yurt.

Sprinkled a bit of cash on a draw right before the penalty. Now it's a nail-biter.

It does seem kind of silly to me that Greece basically stopped another country from calling itself Macedonia, just because Greece uses that name for three of its divisions. If Greece wants exclusivity to the name, Greece should put its money where its mouth is and name itself Macedonia.

The Greeks will tell you there is no such thing as North Macedonia. Macedonia is Greek and that part of the country has major significance in their history (and no, not just because of Alexander) as it played a part in their liberation from the turks. i realize its all fun and games to some, but as i said.. not to the Greeks (my wife is 100% Greek)

Well, I think that Macedonia is as deserving of that name as a country like, say, Columbia is of theirs...

Of course. But the people who’ve lived in the People’s Republic of Macedonia or the Socialist Republic of Macedonia or the Republic of Macedonia seem to disagree with the Greeks.

But even this silly little debate shows why that whole area is such a fucking mess. In all honesty, I’m surprised and pleased that North Macedonia and Greece managed to come to the compromise they did.

I can't get the right search string for this so asking the Swamp: In a penalty shoot-out, if a shot hits the post, is redirected back towards the field, but then hits the keeper and goes in the goal, does it count?

I think so. I've seen clips of similar as well as ones where the ball hits the crossbar and goes straight up. The goalie celebrates and walks off before the ball falls and spins back into the goal (which then counted). Pretty funny, actually.

Yes. Ball is live until it stops moving or the shooter touches it.

Just realized the Gold Cup Final this year is going to be in Las Vegas (Allegiant Stadium). Gonna be one of the first times I'm bummed I have to miss out on something cool because I moved. (Still no interest in going to VGK games at extortionate prices while having to wear a mask and risk getting COVID.)
