Why are these teams taking friendly matches so seriously? I’m not asking their players to not give a shit but these tackles have got to stop. Scott Brown literally threw Luc Castaignos on the ground minutes into the game and his reckless type of play continues throughout the game.
Anyway, enough about these asses, the three major performers are Luc, Castellazzi and Samuel. Luc did a very good job on the left and everytime he started counterattacking plays, he did not screw it up. That goal of his was just world class.
Castellazzi was nothing short of a spectacular show. Totally unbeatable today. Some goes with Samuel, I’m glad he is back and already in mid season form.
