Hi great post. I have been watching the Confederations cup over the weekend. I watched Portugal v Mexico and it was a really good match. I also watched Chile v Cameroon. I’m looking forward to watching more matches.

I missed the Germany v Australia match but from reading your page it looked like a great match.

Who do you think will win the tournament?


Thank you for your comment and hope it you’ll find more interesting and nice post onward working hard for the best articles. Meanwhile regarding this edition of Confederation Cup 2017 from Russia, in my opinion the best chances to get in the final have Portugal and Germany, the last one seems by far the favorite despite the small score difference with Australia. The third place most probably will be battled between Russia and Chile, with south americans ffavorits to get the bronze home.


Really cool match summary, I am more of a club football supporter and a die hard Liverpool fan so I thought I will watch the game because of Emre Can playing for Germany and LFC, I ended up really enjoying the game, after 5min with the first goal I predicted Germany to run away with the game but the kangaroos came into the game late in the firs half and did very well to only lose by one goal in the end. Really entertaining match, I will definitely follow the other Confed matches.


I’m following LFC since 2005 and it was quite a while when it was almost unbearable to be part of this amazing fan club supporters. The Confederation Cup as well other major continental tournaments have their advantage that out of nowhere a scout can find a new gem and over one season or two this club or other have a world class player. Will see to cover more games and as well another interesting subjects around the sport, because here is the place where we all talk football, despite the country, division, club or league.
