The Scottish FA is asking for an apology from 'the player involved' in the allegations of racism in the Scotland vs Brazil game (Neymar) or from the Brazilian FA. Don't they have anything else to do? Apology, really?

Isn't it enough that the offender was identified? Yeah he wasn't Scottish (it was a German lad, if I'm not mistaken), but why a player who was thrown a banana at should apologize for anything? He didn't even blame the Scots directly, he just complained about racism in the stadium. The Brazilian FA didn't say anything about the incident either.

Instead of trying to take things further in another front - like using this opportunity to debate how to take racism out of the game -, they're more concerned in cleaning their reputation and throwing all the blame at Neymar.

This has been very clear since all the comments from the Scottish FA about the banana were followed by critics to Neymar's sporting behavior. Which is pathetic really, his behavior (diving, complaining etc) has nothing to do with race and racism, they're totally different matters.

I'd tell them to f**k off, if I was him. Though I guess I'd say it in a polite way. F**k off, please. :P

I would demand an apology from Neymar. I know the Tartan army well would never stoop so low to racism...especially in a meaningless friendly. It was a lurid claim with no substance. I know of plenty of people who went to that match and 99.9% certain there was no racist chanting and the atmosphere between the two sets of fans was good.

 Who does he think he is this Neymar? A paranoid little runt.

Yeah of course you know them well, you live in Glasgow! I'm sure Neymar doesn't even know what Tartan Army means.

Claim with no substance? A banana WAS thrown on the pitch, that's a fact. Neymar NEVER directly accused Scottish people, he just said there was racism - and that's OBVIOUS, unless you think throwing bananas at black people is alright. In that case, he really is paranoic. Haha... ffs.

Yes the banana on the pitch thrown by some German halfwit was NOT GOOD and should be clamped down on and I hope the idiot in question has been punished harshly but to claim the Scotland fans were racially abusing him was really unfair on the Scottish fans.

Fifa probes unusual betting on Nigeria v Argentina game

Fifa says it is investigating unusual betting patterns relating to Nigeria's 4-1 win over Argentina in Abuja on Wednesday.

When the score was 4-0 in the friendly game, a large number of bets were placed on there being a fifth goal.

Only five minutes of injury time were shown, but eight had elapsed when Mauro Boselli scored a contentious penalty given against Joseph Yobo for handball.

Fifa said in a statement: "This match was one we had an active interest in."

Argentina's involvement in the Copa America tournament meant they sent a largely sub-strength side, captained by Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta.

Ike Uche opened the scoring after 10 minutes, with Victor Obinna adding a second from the penalty spot before Uche headed a third before half-time.

Eight minutes after the restart Emmanuel Emenike lobbed a fourth goal, and the fifth goal of the match, refereed by Ibrahim Chaibou of Niger, came with the final kick of the game.

The match took place the same day Fifa president Sepp Blatter was re-elected for a fourth term in office, pledging to improve the image of the game around the world.

Brazil-Holland starting in a bit. Don't think we'll win to be honest, players like Sneijder, Van der Vaart and Van Bommel are the backbone of our team, and they're out. But it will be interesting to see some new players play, see how they'll hold up. Strootman is supposed to start in Van Bommel's position. Regarded as a big talent, was still playing in the Dutch 2nd division the first half of this season, and now he's playing against Brazil. Hope players like Wijnaldum and De Jong will get some time too. And Newcastle's Tim Krul is on goal, could be our future first choice for keeper. And Kuyt is starting, ofcourse.

In the old times you needed a winning history to manage Brazil, while Mano Menezes trophies are two 2nd division titles and a Brazilian Cup and Dunga was even worse, with no experience. I find it ridiculous.  

But it's not like if almost everyone want Mano out like it was with Dunga, it's still early days to be fair, it's more of a personal opinion I have.

Mano Menezes is highly regarded here but I really don't see anything that special about him. Can't see us going anywhere with him.

His selections don't help either, Elano wearing Brazil number 10 is a crime against football, Fred in the national team makes no sense at all, he prefers André Santos (who he managed at Corinthians) than Marcelo, etc...

Yeah, I get what you're saying. We've had similar stuff, but with Van Basten and Rijkaard. Both hadn't accomplished anything as managers yet, but got the position purely on their name as players. They ended up both doing a decent job luckily, but still think it was a wrong thing to do. Doesn't make sense, the national team manager job should be for the best manager around.

Seen one instance where he got Van Der Wiel a yellow. He didn't even touch him.

Spain is just schooling the US now, 3-0 at HT. Should be 4

They could get 6 or 7 if they want to.

Glad I didn't drive 3 hours to go watch this match.  :gt-happyup:
