10 to Track (Friday, 9/15/17)

1. USA vs. New Zealand – women’s friendly

FIFA ranked #1 vs. #19. It may not be part of a formal competition, but Noob hearts international matches.    Amuricuh!    RESULT:   USA 3-1

B. Denmark vs. Netherlands – women’s friendly

#12 hosts #7 in the most competitive of the three friendlies.    RESULT:   ppd


3. Australia vs. Brazil – women’s friendly

A close second in that department would be #6 vs. #9.    RESULT:  Australia  2-1

4. France vs. Chile women’s friendly

#4 vs. #40.    RESULT:   France  1-0

5. AFC Bournemouth vs. Brighton Hove & Albion – English Premiere

The Cherries were not supposed to be wallowing in the relegation basement of the standings, but they’ve yet to pick up a point this year. Hosting a team freshly promoted to the EPL this season is hopefully just what the doctor ordered.     At last!    RESULT:   Bournemouth  2-1

6. SuperSport United vs. Zesco United CAF – Confederation Cup

This is Africa’s version of Europa League, a solid but secondary tournament to the continent’s Champions League. This is the first leg of the quarterfinal tie.     RESULT:   o-o

7. Toulouse vs. Bordeaux – Ligue 2

Noob loves him some Scrabble, wishes Toulouse were valid. Noob despises U’s. It’s early, but right now Bordeaux is in on of the three slots to get promoted to Ligue 1 this year. And on a Friday, that’s enough to make the T2T.    Bordeaux:  1-0

8. Bangor City vs. Connah’s Quay – Welsh Premier

Bangor City is a university. town where the 10,000 stidents make up more than half the city’s population. And the UK does, in fact, classify it as a city – the smallest in the nation. #4 hosts #2 in a match between two darn good teams from last season as well.    RESULT:   ppd

9. Bhayangkara Surabaya vs. Persija – Indonesia Super League

Bhayangkara is the National Police team there. Yeah, I’d let them be in first place, too.    RESULT:   N/A.    Noob mixed up two games.

10. Green Buffaloes vs. Zanaco – Zambia Premier League

Noobites, does Zanaco sound more like an oil company or pharmaceutical company producing antidepressants? #3 hosts #1 in a whale of a game.    RESULT:  pending, now slated for 9/17

Noob apologizes for the lack of lame humor this week, if it’s even necessary. Thanks to a goofy work schedule, sleep is only scheduled for 2-3 hours at a time the next couple of days. Keep soccering!
