USA and Geoff Cameron win :)
Two more Stoke players in action yesterday. First up Peter Odemwingie came on as a sub for Nigeria in a dire nil nil draw against Iran. At least Odemwingie injected some pace into the proceedings and looks like both these teams won’t progress much further. Nigeria were very disappointing and full credit to Iran for gaining a point.
Geoff Cameron fared better though as the USA beat Ghana 2-1 in a much more entertaining match. He was even voted Man of the Match by Eurosport.
So into the second round of group games later today and we will see three Stoke players in action, although not Mr Palacios!
In Stoke news seems Robert Huth is aiming to be fit and ready for preseason and Mark Hughes wants to resolve any possible transfer requests Steven N’Zonzi may be harboring, again before preseason starts. Season ticket sales are at a record level topping 20,000 and I must admit I am more excited for next season than I was this time last year. Four decent signings already and hopefully we can shift a few fringe players out like Kightly, Palacios, Ness, Edu and Jerome.
