Rooney being a particularly scummy person is also to blame.

What I don't undestand is why Italy doesn't produce more young promising players.
They have financial problems, their Serie A lost a lot of reputation, their national team looked shaky some years ago. They should question their system like Germany did and yet it doesn't look like they are gonna improve.

In Football Manager you can easily found promising Italians and so I followed but not many of them become good players.

El Sharaawy, Balotelli, Veratti, Italy have some young stars coming through, the difference is if that Serie A is such a slower and older league where it's harder for oyung players to break through, especially because the corruption shields the big clubs from their own financial mismanagement which is why the Milan or Rome clubs aren't going through a Dortmund like fall and rise.

Hmm, I wouldn't say that. I think he's still recognized as one of our best players and someone that should always be in the team. He hasn't been great for England, but no one has really. The expectations are stupidly high for Rooney and everyone else. The national team is just generally seen as very underwhelming and Rooney's performances haven't been world class enough to separate him from that stigma.

Are World Cup qualifiers for other Confederations (not CONCACAF) televised anywhere either on TV or the Internet?

Mourinho official. Great for the PL as well. It will be good for there to be more than two teams with a realistic chance of winning the title.

If it's an older and slower league, shouldn't it be easier for young talented guys to break out? Or are you referring mostly to play style? I can see how one's growth can be stunted due to scheme, but i would imagine guys that have a clear physical advantage over the majority of competition would show at least some promise.

Well, the perception of the NT is underwhelming because their performances have been underwhelming. Some guys just don't shine on the international level as much as they do at the club level and that's understood, but i'm more curious as to why that's the case with Rooney, when he's very clearly one of the best on a team lacking elite tier talent.

Eh, the players aren't that good. Losing to Italy in the Euro's is where we're at. Getting thrashed against Germany in the WC is where we're at. The perception is that our players under perform but that probably isn't the case. With Rooney it's probably a combination of a style of play that doesn't suit him at all and the expectations of being "the guy". At Man U he's on a fluid team that understands how to play. Playing for England is the exact opposite.

Yeah but Balotelli is known to be pure-talent and Verati had to leave Italy to take the next step.

Italy should be in a position where they should re-invent themself.
They are in financial problems, they've had scandals, they do not have the same dominating teams, theirs stadiums are old, and they continue to have racists story through theirs games. Shouldn't they question theirs system and make some change ?
Their league is know to be old and slow and it's because of that that they should involve theirs promising stars. The Serie A's teams don't trust theirs young players and I don't understand why.

They had a pathetic showing at the '10 WC, scoring two goals in three group play games. I have to admit that's probably the last time i've gotten a real good look at them, but they had a sizeable talent advantage over the rest of the teams and did nearly nothing with it. I've always liked Rooney as a player so that's really where my curiosity stems from.

I meant that the playing style is slower so that young players have less space to take advantage of their athleticism and the game comes down a lot more to strength and experience, plus there's a natural preference for veterans that some times keeps more talented youngsters on the bench. This is changing somewhat with the youth movement that Milan have been forced into, but that's more just because Balo and the Pharoah, the two biggest italian striking stars, are young now.

Well Balo is one hell of a player and Veratti left to chase the big bucks at PSG, since Juve are the only big spenders in italy right now, and they had already snagged Pogba who's even younger than Veratti.

I don't really disagree with much of the rest of your assessment of serie A though, there's a lot wrong down there to the point where I don't know who's screwed more Serie A or La Liga, and forcing the teams to be financially responsible while shepparding in a way of more innovative coaches who bring italian soccer out of the 90s/early 2000s, would be huge for them. Roma's really the only big italian team in the midst of a youth movement and even there De Rossi and Totti remain crucial players despite Totti being old enough to have fathered some of his team-mates.

But the Azzurri have enough young stars for the NT to remain a big team even in this next generation. That's a great forward core and a star playmaker, all you need to fill out that team are some defenders and shuttlers in midfield, and that's what the italians produce en masse. I expect them to smoothly transition from the Pirlo generation after the WC. The tourney I thought they might stumble at was this past euros, and they made it to the final, they should be stronger at the world cup.

I saw Japan vs South Korea at the Olympics last year, it was TERRIBLE. The most entertaining part of the spectacle was far and away the Korean fan who had improvised a drum out of a saucepan and was going mad for it all game long.

I'm watching Qatar vs. Iran. Very interesting watching a game in Arabic.

It randomly switched to English now. That's good because I wasn't 100% sure which team was Iran. I picked the right team but I wasn't certain.

Looking at some of these team rosters for the U21 EM and holy crap. Germany's sending Holtby, Rode, Herrmann, Leno and a lot of other gifted youngsters and still may have the least raw talent in their group. The Dutch are spending most of their starting backline wi de Vrij, van Rhijn and Blind, their midfield of Strootman, van Ginkel and Maher are all studs, and their front line is of typical dutch quality.

Russia is including much of the expected lineup for the 2018 WC squad with Dzagoev, Kokorin, Cheryshev, Shennikov, Burlak and maybe even Shatov being expected starters for that team while guys like Panyukov, Yakovlev and Smolov will be key jokers from the bench. Ozdoev is about the only young russian player who looks like he'll be a starter after this generation leaves after the WC who isn't there.

Spain are sending guys like Isco, Munian, Thiago, De Gea, Rodrigo, Tello and a lot of other young studs, the Italians are sending Veratti, Immobile, Insigne, Dastro, Borini, basically everyone except Balo and the Pharoah. England aren't sending everybody they could but with Henderson, Shelvey, Zaha, Ince, Wickham, etc. there's enough talent there to get them out of group A.

My guess right now is Italy and England out of group A, Russia and the Dutch out of group B, with England being the only one of the 4 I can't see going to the final and winning.

I'm not so sure the english won't accidentally squeeze out a stronger team out of this next generation. With Liverpool's fall Sturridge, Henderson, Sterling and Shelvey have been getting a lot of PT. With Arsenal's transfer policies Wilshere has become a big time player as Walcott and OX have also seen big minutes. The big question will be how much the ManU segment of your team develops cause with Welbeck, Zaha, Powell and Cleverley they could also bring a lot to the table.

Once Roy gets fired after the WC you could have an interesting team brewing. With a Henderson, Wilshere, Cleverly/Powell mid field playing behind 3 of Rooney, Welbeck, Sturridge, Walcott, Ox, Zaha and Sterling the talent is there to actually be dangerous.

Someone will need to grow into the holding spot so Wilshere and the third midfielder can get forward, and while there's a lot of young talent in the attacking line I'm not sure that's not just a collection of good players rather than dynamic stars. But this just might turn into a successful generation that can actually get past the quarterfinals.

If Hodgson doesn't get fired i'm gonna cry.

CM - Tom Cleverley
CM - Jack Wilshere
CAM - Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
RW - Wilfried Zaha
LW - Daniel Sturridge
ST - Wayne Rooney

I quite like the look of this. The front 3 is fluid, all guys can play in different positions in attack and are all scoring threats. The 3 midfielders all have good technical ability and Chamberlain in the middle gives us a 4th guy that can attack with pace a score a goal. If we're going more defensive...Jack Rodwell? Another guy that is gonna get no playing time, but he's a decent player. Actually, Phill Jones probably makes the most sense for that role.
