Good Luck OM Internationals!By: Richard | November 15th, 2013
Remember guys there is no match this weekend due to the international break. With Brazil edging ever closer we are getting to see what OM players will be making the trip to Brazil this summer. It goes without saying that our focus is almost always on France & Ghana when it comes to international competitions. As you may or may not know, both countries finished second in their respective groups and now have to go through a two leg qualifier. France will be paired up with the Ukraine whereas Ghana already played their first leg against Egypt. The result was an astounding 6-1 victory over the Pharaohs all but securing their spot in Brazil. The last country to mention is fellow African side Tunisia. Newcomer to the squad Saber Khelifa features prominently for the side, and like France and Ghana, Tunisia’s hopes rests on their own two leg qualifier with Cameroon. Having drawn 0-0 in their first match, the second leg will no doubt be an interesting one.
Not forgetting our under 21’s, a huge congratulations to Florian Thauvin as he netted a hat trick in a 6-0 routing of Armenia. With that win of course France goes top of their group in the U-21 championship. Of course it’s never easy to break into the senior side of Les Bleus, but with more performances like this, it’s only a matter of time.
Well there you have it, I fancy all three sides to progress to Brazil, fingers crossed of course!
