- Gundogan transfer update
In the post game presser after Germany's 8-0 dismantling of Estonia, Ilkay Gundogan took some questions about his future at Manchester City. “I would know about that, I know nothing, I have not spoken to anyone,” he said about speculation of his transfer. He went on to stress he is happy at Manchester City but didn’t rule out further discussion of a transfer. Gundogan is still a great player and if BVB can lock him up for a good price it would be a boon to our midfield. With Dahoud’s future up in the air, Dortmund definitely needs another central midfielder. Gundogan would play great next to Axel Witsel or Thomas Delaney. Hopefully Zorc can figure out how to lure Ilkay away from Manchster city without running down our budget.
- International results
There were a few notable results yesterday in both the Euro qualifiers and the Women’s World Cup. Axel Witsel and Thorgan Hazard helped Belgium win 3-0 over Scotland in group I. Marco Reus scored 2 in Germany’s 8-0 dismantling of Estonia while Julian Brandt did not play. Germany looks primed to be a force again after last years embarrassing results. While Estonia isn’t the toughest competition, the team played cohesively together for the first time in over a year. With tons of young blood that will only get better I think this isn’t the last time we see this squad decimate a weaker side.
In the Women’s World Cup Matchday 1 officially wrapped up with the Netherlands defeating New Zealand, Sweden defeating Chile, and the United States defeating Thailand. The US-Thailand game was one that will be talked about for awhile as the USWNT won 13-0, a Wormens World Cup Record. The USWNT have had plenty of doubters this tourney, more so then any previous World Cup. In this first game they came to remind everyone who has the most stars on their jersey.
