As the friendlies this weekend are basically warm up games for those nations playing in the Euros is there any point keeping an eye on our fellow group members to see how their squads play?

Especially when every top summer signings list has 3 or 4 Belgium players going for 15 mill +
Pick it out Landreau

Watched a bit of both inbetween shifts at work so a scan over it.

Both are good links from here.

As it is friendlies, hard to take what from it. Croatia were coasting and 2-0 by 19 minutes. Estonia look nifty on the ball but no support upfront. I turned off but sure I heard Ojamaa's name, his debut perhaps? Hard really as Croatia have a mixed side and no doubt just want to test their squad and build match fitness up for the Euros.

The Belgium game has been decent and Montenegro have had a fair few chances. Hazard, Miralles, Fellani,Witsel, Vertonghen all started and playing, but no Company and they looked fairly suspect at the back. Montenegro hit the bar from exploiting the right back. From what I've seen of this Belgium haven't looked that great at all again though a end of season friendly.

The seemingly obvious one to look for is Belgium, but perhaps not. Hazard already has his pick of EPL Champions League teams, Vertonghen again has his pick of North London clubs, neither have much to play for. Kompany, Fellaini, we already know about, all we can learn from their game against England is how well Belgium are coming together as a team, which is basically an end of season friendly when in their minds they're on holiday all ready

Far more interesting is how Croatia play in the actual tournament.

Did you watch it?
I was going to watch the 2nd half but got sidetracked by a cold Stella and the sun!

Were Serbia any good?, players to watch?

Macedonia drew 0-0 with Portugal also.

I managed to catch a bit of Serbia-Spain but ended up watching Switzerland-Germany more.

Spain cruised through the game really with pretty much a B side.

Looks like a decent result for Macedonia. They play Angola tomorrow, so a chance for them to build up some form and an unbeaten run for the qualifiers.Seen about 2 mins of it and seen Ronaldo, Merieles etc.

Watched Wales last night and they were fairly decent. They lost 2-0 but had some moments in the match but maybe Coleman might do alright for them. They were missing a few players. Jason Brown in the sticks was an interesting watch. He had some great saves but flapped about like an accordian too much at times but sure they'll play Hennessey or Myhill in the qualifiers.

Up next from the teams in our group

Tues
Angola - Macedonia

Thur
France - Serbia

Sat
England - Belgium

A decent 0-0 draw for Macedonia against Angola in Lisbon tonight.
So that is two draws in a few days.

It was the same again in 2013 but hopefully the Black can get a bit closer in 2014!

Saw Ronaldo having a moan at Macedonia "parking 2 buses" in front of their penalty area.

Belgium have been by far the better side. Have got all the possession.
