      Yep, saw it. Uruguay played like sh*t. To be honest with the players, i would not move a muscle at -10 C degrees. We never do well in the extreme cold countries, and we missed Luis and Cavani.

      To be honest, I'd move every muscle I could to stay warm :)  Even with Cavani/Suarez out, the least you'd hope for would be scraping a win/draw.  I didn't watch the full match as I was cooking breakfast, but I'd pop my head in and watch a few minutes at a time.  Uruguay looked like they didn't want to be there.

      You are right on the muscle issue, but I meant I would be unwilling to play in those circumstances. I think most players were in that situation. Still no excuse for loosing to Estonia, but i fail to see the point of this kind of friendlies.
      Players wont try their best because they are afraid of getting injured, and id rather play teams that are above my level. Clearly Estonia were above our level today, but i dont think we would loose in real match.

      Worst keeper EVER. How he's capable of playing international football (even if it was for San Marino) is beyond me.

      Muslera is sh*t, but he's still a lot better than Castillo, who is not only 100% crap but also very small, I'll never understand how he ever became a professional goalkeeper, I'm serious in saying he's the worst keeper I've ever seen at the top level, he played for Botafogo here in Brazil.

      I agree his is complete sh*t but are you serious on the height issue??
      Best keeper of all time, maybe tied with Yashin was Ladislao Mazurkiewicz. Really small.You can name tons of great keepers that compensate height with agility.
      Not the case with castillo. sadly!

      Football has changed though, physical attributes like height and athleticism have become much more important compared to the early days. The sport has become alot more professional.

      True, but still agility and reflexes can compensate height for a keeper IMO

      Just on this point, I'd throw Gordon Banks in with them two.

      Maybe to an extend, but never fully obviously. Like I said, the sport has become alot more professional and competitive. The good tall keepers have good reflexes and agility aswell. Not that I consider Mazurkiewicz to have been that short for that time. Campos for instance was alot shorter. But these days keepers like Akinfeev and Cesar are considered short.

      I never said small keepers are necessarily crap. But height obviously help for his position, doesn't it? So, being crap AND small only makes Castillo even worse. He's a total joke of a player. The same could be said for center backs, for example. Still, Fabio Cannavaro is 'only' 1.75m and was a fantastic player. They're exceptions though.

      That's the final.

      I only saw the last 20 minutes. Pretty entertaining. The US held its own. They were surrounding Messi anytime he got the ball. Apparently the 1st half was dominated by Argentina. Then a nice 2nd half goal by 18 year old Juan Agudelo tied it up for the Americans.
