What the hell is happening to them???

Struggling to qualify from an easy qualification campaign where the top two/three out the group progress. 

Currently 3-0 down to Turkey following a home defeat to Iceland???

Don't understand.

Sorry, make that lost 3-0 in Turkey and cannot finish in the top two in the group.  Best they can hope for is a playoff place.

Shocking.

2010 - lost the world cup final in extra time.

2011 - ranked the best team in the world.

What a fall from grace.  A lot of retired players, nothing coming through?

To be honest they were far from a good team last year in the World Cup and it was purely due to Van Gaal's force of personality and their collective ability to buy into his 'philosophy' that they managed to get where they did. Its a sorry state of affairs but we shouldn't dismiss how much the 'smaller' nations have progressed too. Iceland have been superb, Wales havent conceded a goal in 500+ minutes etc. Makes for a more interesting international break anyway!

Only one Dutch player under 24 with a PT of 99 on my database says a lot and he's a keeper.

Belgium have 3 Germany 7 France 6 England 9 Italy 4 Portugal 2 and Spain 12, obviously my database is not 100% predictive but it does show a perceived trend.

Tom and I were discussing this last night. France have a great pool of 18-24 year olds coming through which I think is beyond any other country. They also seem to be spread over a lot of positions and already playing at a high level at big clubs - Pogba, Varane, Kondogbia and Griezmann being standouts.
