Good Morning Fear The Wall

It wouldn’t be an international break without a few injuries, would it? Gio Reyna suffered a hamstring strain earlier in the break, and now Reus is hurt! Kicker has reported that Reus is out of Wednesday’s game against Iceland, having picked up a knee injury.

However, the good news is that they also say he will probably be able to play against Leverkusen on Saturday. Stay safe Marco.

Erling Haaland Kicks Football Really Hard

There’s no news because it’s midweek in an international break, so here’s a video of Erling Haaland smashing a volley is hard as possible.

I’d like to echo Grace Robertson’s thoughts on this: people seriously underestimate what elite athletes can do in their sport. One of the aspects that I think people fail to realize, is just how incredibly hard players kick a ball (and off of what looks like relatively minimal effort). A National League player could kick a football harder than you could ever imagine, so what Erling Haaland, a man that looks like he’s custom built to punt a ball into space, might be able to do? Reckon it would break every bone in my face if that hit me.
