Hooligan's Daily: International Breaks Suck

Yesterday's Scores
World Cup Qualifying- OFC
Papua New Guinea 1-3 Tahiti
(Dabingyaba 45')-(Graglia 59', 85', Tehau 90')

It's been a slow couple of days in the soccer world. Very few, if any headlines have been coming down the tubes and the first competitive match of the week kicked off at 2am in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. There was the Jeff Cassar sacking at RSL and Bastian Schweinsteiger making the move to MLS, but other than that there has been nothing. I find it hard to get excited for international friendlies that serve little purpose. I can, and will, enjoy the World Cup Qualifying matches this weekend, but I'm afraid these headlines sections will remain a little thin. Hopefully there's some international drama this weekend to fill the gap.
