  3. Any captains that haven't sent their RII picks and numbers, can they do so ASAP. Need them in so I can get RII's fixtures up. Will be contacting someone later today/tomorrow about the matchups.

  4. England Beat Scotland

    In the second game of the England vs Scotland series, it's England that manage to come away with the win in what was very much a game of two halves.

    FM Base Internationals - Results Thread-image.jpg

    The he game started off absolutely disastrously for England when, almost straight from kickoff, Scotland got a penalty which Vidal quickly converted. Douglas Costa got a goal back for England fifteen minutes later, but Arda Turan put Scotland back in front around the half hour mark. However, five minutes before half time, Ter Stegen made a good save from a free kick, but the ball dropped to Kovacic to make it 2-2. I honestly don't know how it was 2-2 at half time. Scotland were by far the better team in the first half and deserved to be ahead.

    The first ten minutes of the second half were honestly very boring, but the game came alive in the 58th minute and for the next 20 minutes England completely dominated. First Douglas Costa bagged his second goal of the game through some great footwork, then ten minutes later Diego Godin headed in from a De Bruyne corner. Then De Bruyne (who I had been thinking of taking off) sunk Scotland completely with a great strike from the edge of the box, making it 5-2 England.

    Scotland did get a goal back in the 75th minute through Riyad Mahrez (who really impressed after coming on for an injured Gotze in the first half) to make it 5-3. Scotland had a couple of good chances in the last fifteen minutes from then, but ultimately they couldn't convert any chances into the back of the net.

    Final score, ENGLAND 5-3 SCOTLAND.

    We still have a few outstanding ones, so if we look to clear the games by Wednesday, that should be fine. If any games are left outstanding on Thursday, then they'll be classified as 0-0s

  9. I PM'd C0y0te a few days back but still no reply; l'ast activity 1 week ago' :/

    I PM'd him 2 days back as well, to try to see if he's had any luck making contact. No response yet though, maybe the Scandinavians need to look for a backup member!

    A drab affair was played out in this FM-Base International match with Brendn's Ireland side snatching the
    winner just before injury time. A draw was probably a fair result as both teams defending well; both
    goalkeepers making vital saves. Still, a massive 3 points from the boys in green as we lost our opening
    against the Scandinavian side.

  13. Great game, but poor finishing all around. Dissapointed to see Messi and Ronaldo perform so poorly

  14. As it stands, Ireland/Scandinavia goes to the decider, whilst Scotland need to beat England in the last match to claim a point. All to play for for Aus/USA.

  15. Well done Brendn. Great job!

    In what was a great end to end game the US levelled the tie against Australia.

    Aubameyang got the US ahead after 12 minutes Reus found Lukaku open out wide and he crossed in for Aubameyang to head past Ryan in the Australian goal.

    Ozil doubled the lead after 19 minutes, a Reus cross missed his target but, Hulk at the back post passed to Ozil and he had a tap in at the back post and made no mistake.

    Suarez pulled a goal back after 27, Costa crossed to him at the back post and he volleyed past Lloris who had no chance.

    Hulk scored after 41 minutes to put us two goals ahead going into half time. After a great tackle stopped Suarez getting in on goal we quickly countered, Lukaku passed up to Reus out wide and he cut a pass back for Hulk to volley in from 12 yards out.

    USA 3-1 Australia HT

    Reus got us three goals ahead after 53 minutes, from a cross that smacked on the bar we quickly countered Lukaku slipped in Reus and he rifled a low shot in past Ryan.

    Sanchez pulled a goal back after 67 minutes Hazard whipped in a good cross and Sanchez was unmarked to tap in at the back post.

    Pogba made it a 1 goal game after 81 minutes, Hazard floated in a cross and Pogba rose highest to head past Lloris and in.

    Lukaku esnured that the USa levelled the series with a 90th minute goal,he took in an Ozil pass on the edge of the box beat Cheillini and the fired past Ryan to round of a great game by him

    USA 5-3 Australia

  17. theJoshster is currently showing as AWOL for the last week, so should it be necessary, I'll step into the void created provided everyone is fine with that. Same applies for Scandanavia and c0y0te/Pat should that happen.

    I think that's fine, we all have to be flexible if this is going to work.

    My bad. Will be around Thursday all day if you want to get the game done then.

    Round 1 to end Saturday. RII to start on Sunday, and run for a week, otherwise we'll get massively behind.

  31. Currently waiting on Ireland/USA's matchups. Once I have those, RII's fixtures can go up.

  46. R1: Australia v USA

    What a game this was! To decide the series between Australia and The US of A.

    The matched kicked off and the first highlight we saw was a free kick to the Aussies. Eden Hazard whipped the free kick into the box. The ball bounced past everybody and found Luis Suarez who slotted it in comfortably.

    Australia 1 - USA 0

    The US soon equalized in the 14th minute with Marco Reus easily beating a few Australian defenders and slotting it home.

    Australia 1 - USA 1

    In the 34th minute the Aussies had a golden opportunity to go ahead after some fine play which saw Eden Hazard taken out in the box by Daley Blind. I was so sure that Hazard would convert that I was already planning on changing my tactics to defensive to close out the half. But, boy was I wrong Hazard stepped up to take the penalty a well struck penalty but shot right into The Americans Goalkeeper in Hugo Lloris.

    The Americans then found themselves ahead at the break after Homegrown Midfielder Michael Bradley buried one from top of the box. A sensational strike and would say "Made the Manager's Team Talk and Halftime much harder"

    Half Time: Australia 1 - USA 2

    In the second half both sides came out eager to score and for the Aussies they did just that. Eden Hazard made up for the missed penalty slotting it in after a Paul Pogba through ball.

    Australia 2 - USA 2

    The rest of the match was a cracker with both sides looking to find that one goal. Each side had their chances but were unable to convert (Including substitute Alvaro Morata scoring but being later ruled offside)

    Full Time: Australia 2 - USA 2

    Auld Enemies

    The Auld Enemies face off once more as England played Scotland in the Ullevaal Stadion in Oslo, Norway. It was England that held a slim advantage going into
    the FM Base International Series (Round One) fixture with Game 1 between AW190 and EoinMcG ending in a spectacular 4-4 draw and then Game 2 between Matt419 and DaveyJones threw up another 8 goal thriller but this time England took the spoils in a 5-3 victory.

    In the third and final game of this Round One Series it was Godfish93 against Grianaig.



    Kick-off
    England 0-0 Scotland

    Both teams kicked off with what looked like the same formation and both looking for a win. And the first action of note occured in the 17th minute when the Scotland centre-half Sergio Ramos picked up an early yellow card. But the deadlock was broken in the 21st minute when Scotland scored on the counter attack. Mario Gótze setting up Daniel Sturridge to knock the ball into the net after an excellent break away move.

    21 mins
    England 0-1 Scotland

    Immediately after this England made a tactical substitution when Godfish93 removed Cesc Fabregas was replaced by Gonzalo Higuain. Four minutes later, there was a massive moment in the match when the referee showed Sergio Ramos a second yellow card followed by the inevitable red card for a trip on England substitute Higuain. This led to a shuffle in the Scotland squad as Mario Gótze was the unfortunate player who had to be taken off to allow Mario Fernandez to take Eric Dier's spot at right back after he moved in to partner Javier Mascherano in the centre of defence.


    Half-time

    England 0-1 Scotland

    Half time arrived with nothing else to really write about both sides squandering chances to score. So the second half kicked off with Scotland holding onto a slim 1-0 lead despite being down to 10 men. Two minutes into the second half, England made their second change to the team on the pitch as Neymar comes on to replace Ilkay Gúndogan as they tried to take advantage of the extra man. But it was Scotland that took England by surprise as they scored a second following great play. Substitute Mario Fernandez won a header against Neymar and nodded it forward where James Rodríguez played a simple pass to Artura Vidal. He then lofted a pinpoint ball up to Daniel Sturridge who lost the defenders marking him and smashed the ball past Petr Cech.


    58 mins
    England 0-2 Scotland


    England made their third and final substitute when Luke Shaw replaced David Alaba following Sturridge's second goal. Less than 10 minutes later England gave themselves a lifeline following neat footwork in the box. Koke found Raheem Sterling with a low pass into the box who passed it first time with his left foot to Robert Lewandowski. He then squared it to Gonzalo Higuain who lost his marker and knocked the ball past a sprawling Marc-André ter Stegen.


    67 mins
    England 1-2 Scotland

    After 74 minutes Scotland made a double substitution to try and see out the last 15 minutes. Emre Can coming on for a tiring Eric Dier and Harry Kane replacing two-goal hero Daniel Sturridge. And despite a lot of pressure from a strong England side, Scotland managed to see out the rest of the game.


    Full-time
    England 1-2 Scotland
