Why didn't Max Kruse get more consideration for a call up?



I know his off-field antics and previous fall out with Low are big deals, but seems that his play has made him as deserving as anyone.

Perú was basically having the same mediocre campaign they always have with 14 points from 12 games ( and 3 of those points were won because Bolivia fielded an inegelible player for 10 minutes in a game they won 2-0 quite comfortably).

And then suddenly out of nowhere they went on a massive unbeaten run.

Draw at Venezuela away which is decent, defeated Uruguay at home, defeated Bolivia at home, defeated Ecuador away ( a game which changed the entire qualification dynamic because we all thought Chile and Ecuador were going to battle out the last spot ). Then they somehow managed to scrape a draw against Argentina away before settling for a draw against Colombia at home which was enough to secure the playoff spot.

So I suppose the market is still not sure if Perú is top 15 material or simply went on an incredible heater. I think it's somewhere in the middle , they had a lot of breaks going their way. I don't think they are one of the top 5 southamerican sides but they are not bottom 3 either.
The thing is that the even non top 5 southamerican sides are quite competitive.
They had the advantage of not changing manager in the middle of the qualification process which helped their cohesion as well.

So in short given the current odds I would pick Perú over Denmark. I think they should have similar odds. I also think the market overrates Denmark because of their 5-1 win. It happens a lot on international betting where sample sizes are small.

I agree , even odds for DEN PER sound about right to me.

Could it be that the lines never adapted to Guerrero being allowed to play?

maybe i'd feel differently if england hadn't already won the world cup
What about if you're a professional footballer, though? I learned from your that the only value they care about is money. So they surely would take the dough, no?

This obv doesn't mean anything since in the first two highlighted instances, the title was won by West Germany, not Germany.

So the thing is

italy
spanish speaking country
germany
brazil

seems legit, plus each time brazil won the world cup outside of southamerica.

first time ever hearing that there's any significance to west germany as opposed to germany. maybe (only) toni kroos is that much of a difference maker though

West Germany never existed, its official name was Federal Republic of Germany, now its the same country albeit with more territory. We have this discussion every time there is an international competion. Its a classic.

Next discussion: England only managed to draw against Panama because the smart english people are worried about coaching rowing.
