    Perhaps, he's good at Arsenal, but at the world cup...I'll wait and see. That is only a friendly after all, let's see if they can play like that at the actual World Cup...

    Same could be said about Italy, they haven't won a competitive International match since September and other than beating San Marino they haven't won a friendly since December 2011. Their opponents include the likes of Haiti, Luxembourg, Armenia and oh England. They are currently on a 7 game run without winning.

    I'm discounting the victory over club team Fluminese by the way.

    Get your fake sick note online from Taobao so you can stay up late to watch the matches LOL

    Fake sick notes made headlines in China in 2012 when a postal worker in Hong Kong used 130 doctor's notes bought from Taobao to scam more than HK$217,000 (about $28,000) in sick leave allowance as well as 635 days of leave in the span of four years.

    Hong Kong's Independent Commission Against Corruption found pads of blank doctor's notes as well as bogus doctor's stamps at the 40-year-old offender's home.

    Haha, that's a nice one.

    But sorry to rain on everyone's parade, but I think the authorities are now wised up and can spot these forgeries far easier than before, especially when suddenly everyone turned up sick around the the world cup...

    Yeah that's correct. Long way to go. Perhaps you skip the ceremony and get some sleep first :-)

    I can deal with games played at midnight or 6am. It's the 3am games that I'm struggling with (just like the CL games through the year)
