Back to our secondary discussion, Adam Bateman tweets: “Casey Stoney had the right idea, call them ‘game changers’ instead of subs, because that’s exactly what they are.”

Casey Stoney has a lot of good ideas. When Gareth Southgate hands it over, I’d love her or Emma Hayes to take the job, if they’re up for it.

Earlier, I asked for pictures of Almeria v Hearts and you’ll be pleased to know that the internet hasn’t let us down.

I spent my Sunday morning watching an Asian woman with rabbit ears comment on the fist fight between Almería and Heart players in a training camp in Marbella.

I think I preferred it when Thuram held the record.

Hugo Lloris starts against Poland today and becomes the most capped player in the history of French football with 142 matches, equaling Lilian Thuram. What an incredible achievement!

At what point is this back four – Thuram, Desailly, Blanc, Lizarazu – the best we’ve ever seen? Panucci, Baresi, Costacurta, Maldini are up there, but not too many others are thought of.

I am very happy that Ousmane Dembélé enters the French game with a regulation. He has the raw materials to be one of the most devastating players in the game, and now he says it’s okay, we’re starting to see it. The first time I saw him play, in a pre-season friendly between Dortmund and Man United, I thought he was going to be a superstar, and while it hasn’t happened yet, he still has time.

France: Lloris, Koundé, Varane, Upamecano, T.Hernández, Tchouaméni, Rabiot, Dembélé, Griezmann, Mbappé, Giroud.

Poland: Szczesny, Bereszynski, Glik, Kiwior, Cash, Krychowiak, Zielinski, Szymanski, Frankowski, Kaminski, Lewandowski.

Rob Smyth’s France-Poland blog is live…

…we are 15 hours away from the World Cup of SoccerTM!

I have said before that Marcus Rashford is a very good sub…

Yes, since the start of the Utd 20/21 season

29 secondary appearances, 12 goals / 2 assists

Going back to today’s first game, it is difficult, but not impossible, to see a way for Poland. France has been impressive, it’s true, but it’s also true that above all, Kylian Mbappé has been impressive. If he is out, or can be sent off, with Robert Lewandowski up front and Piotr Zielinski out, Poland are in the game. It cannot be ignored that they have only scored against Saudi Arabia – they are great outsiders – but they have a chance to score if France are away.

In whose face have you felt something similar? I have Eric Cantona, my hero, and Denis Law, my father’s hero.

But I’m going to interrupt because I’m just watching footage of Tite talking about Pelé, saying he’s the only person whose presence made him tremble. He calls it “the human representation of health,” which is lovely. I wrote the other day that 1958 embodied youth forever, and it’s great that the news about him has improved.

We haven’t really talked about France vs. Poland, so here we go! To get you started, here’s our briefing.

“The second best random duo on the internet,” emails Mark Hooper. Glorious!

Everything that no one wants to see. Video please!

Senegal is, however, a good and settled side. But if you’re pushing me, I’d say the absence of Cheikhou Kouyaté and Idrissa Gueye tips the scales heavily in England’s favour.

Senegal, on the other hand, is enjoying life. What a pity that Sadio Mané is not with them.

Sky have heard, and Talksport reports, that it’s Saka on the right and Foden on the left for England. I’m a bit surprised by this – of the four wide forwards, I thought Foden was the least likely to start. But he is a brilliant player, probably the best of them all, and I guess the reason? He wants the width to stay, so a natural left foot on the left, and he knows Rashford is a fantastic substitute.

Which brings me to one of the best videos on the internet. There aren’t many songs that appear on every party playlist I’ve made, but this is one, and what a moment at the end.

I just watched this and Jimmy Somerville’s You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real) came on. I was momentarily very impressed, but it turned out to be an ad on SSN. But if anyone knows Dhr Noppert, please pass on my suggestion.

Little news about a player who is not in the England squad, who should be in the England squad.

Jadon Sancho not in #mufc squad for warm weather training camp. The club says it is continuing with the individual training program to return to top level. Sancho has been training in the Netherlands with coaches recommended by Ten Hag.

To be clear, this is not a criticism of Gareth Southgate – Sancho has done nothing to demand inclusion. But his skill is such that he should have been an automatic pick and this seems like a good move for him – he already has all the skills so he doesn’t need games, he just needs to be stronger and faster.

Tom Farrell’s vase wit is going well! Here’s Gerry Carr: “China, India and Ireland finally find competition to match their lack of talent. The World Cup has finally found the ideal format and numbers. The vase gives the chance to retain- lo and growing the game. It would also make it worth fighting for 3/4/5 in the standings. Win. Win. Win.”

The phrase “raise the game” always makes me think of a rapper in a pot.

Back in the US, I think they have the germ of a really useful side. I think Brendon Aaronson will be a very good player, Gio Reyna will improve, and so will Tyler Adams. They need to find a reliable goalscorer, but I’m optimistic they’ll be decent in their home competition four years from now.

It’s Matt Jarvis! He’s going to win.

I was on the edge that night, and I had no idea.

A hint: a cap, against Ghana in 2011…

Competition time: Sky Sports News is interviewing a ‘former England winger’. Can you guess who?

Here are Aaron Timms’ thoughts on the elimination of the US.

“I’ve just seen the comments today suggesting a Vase tournament as a second-tier world football competition,” emails David McMahon. “Surely it should be a saucer rather than a vase – cup and saucer go much better, don’t they? (or is that too parochial a view?)”

I’m not sure, I understand the reason, but it could be a bit like Plate, which is very rugby.

“A FIFA vase/shield/trophy/plaque would be amazing in the ‘north’ of England via Brum, Manchester and Liverpool, Newcastle,” reckons Hugh Molloy. “Eight groups of four with two stadiums in each venue hosting two groups each. Easy peasy. Also, if the English FA wanted to stick two fingers at FIFA and get endless goodwill, I’d take it off the books and name them” friendlies’ and would only host an under-21 team. No infrastructure to build, the four home nations there, very cheap tickets, a festival of football. It would be a blast.”

You had me until the insertion of the sub-21 teams, which presents us with a problem of sporting integrity. However, I understand the logic (I’m not sure there would be enough local appetite without them), so I think we should let the participating countries be welcoming, as per the original plan.

Oh Arsene I wish I was more surprised than I was, but it’s been in the cards for a long time, sadly.

In a technical briefing on the group stage, Arsene Wenger says that “the teams that were mentally prepared to focus on the competition and not on the political demonstration” played well in the first game.

The link to the full chat is here.

My colleague Jason Rodrigues emails with news of a classic match report:

“Senegal made an impressive World Cup debut in Korea/Japan in 2002, beating champions France in a group game before narrowly losing to Turkey in the quarter-finals and conceding a late goal gold in overtime.

Kevin Mitchell for the Observer reported from Osaka’s Nagai Stadium: “Turkey soaked up what Senegal had to offer, which was sporadically spectacular through the quick feet of El Hadji Diouf… when the Turks struck, however, it was sudden and clinical.four minutes into extra time the golden goal’.

“Liverpool-bound Hadji Diouf said: “We gave him everything we had, but this is what God wanted. Turkey deserved it but luck was on their side. We leave with our heads held high. We had nothing to lose and we will try to keep this team together, to keep the same mentality.”

Gosh, Ilhan Mansiz is a name I haven’t heard in a minute.
