I can't believe there isn't a worldcup thread already so here it is.

That literally last minute goal of Germany vs Sweden saved their asses... so close.

Yeah, pretty sick matches today and it's only the second group round.

Mexico and Croatia playing such nice football, let's hope they go far. Another possible top 4 surprise could be Senegal.

mexico looked great 1st game vs germany but they lack the finishing touch

ger x swe was amazing- swe looked great 1st half but gassed but that last goal was amazing!

Germany showed again why they have always been the football team with the best mentality, never giving up, no matter the odds. Tell me how many football teams could push down one of the best defenses (Swe) with a player less... Sweden looked so scared and making that wall with 2 players only was huge mistake, still they have a chance to redeem vs Mexico, but I prefer to see Mex and Ger going forward from this group.

Iceland, Iran don't give up either.

Rooting for France, Belgium, Mexico, Nigeria and Senegal - in that order.


Expiate   Bulgaria. Jun 24 2018 15:12. Posts 226

Yeah, Iran are definitely huge fighters, Portugal will have very tough match vs them.

Belgium v England should be good. Really liked Colombia in their match today, hope they go through.

so basically the 3 Frances, Belgium and Mexico?

Brazil/Spain seem to be the best teams from the favourites

I cant really judge Belgium as they have a really easy group and will just go through everyone, but they gotta face off someone decent in the playoffs before making any calls.

I really like Croatia's chances as well going into playoffs they could potentially reach 1/2 finals which would be huge for them.

Argentina s total crap and their coach will most likely get assassinated once he goes back to his country... He literally had put half of his best players on the bench last game incl the fucking goalkeeper and didn't even take Icardi in the team for World Cup.. what a fucking joke.

Overall rooting for Germany/Spain though, hope the German machine starts working again, Kroos wont be able to solo carry them to the cup


Excl. Panama & Tunisia this World Cup is so fucking competitive, it feels like football is solved tactically and there are very slight edges now even between huge favorites and weaker teams. Look at Morocco and Iran for instance, they almost wrecked Spain/Portugal. If Sweden didn't miss their chances during hte first half, they would've thrown Germany out of the competition. Iceland a 300k pop country had a fuckin massive European Championship 2 years ago and now play like monsters in the World Cup, very cool shit.

P.S. Glad Boateng got the red card for the last match of Germany, he is so fucking bad currently, used to be one of the best players before, but the things he did against Mexico and Sweden.... holy fuck, I'd bench him till the end of the WC

not confident in brazil ... neymar is reallly rusty and they are basing the strat a lot on him. Douglas costa re-injured himself which sucks too.

apparently argentina players are having huge issues with the coach and wanted to fire him but thats not happening because the fee the coach would receive for that was too big but apparently the game vs nigeria now will be controlled by the players the coach will have no say. fucking dimaria and dybala on the bench cmon man...

teams seem more competitive now for sure the weak links are not so weak anymore.


Expiate   Bulgaria. Jun 25 2018 10:17. Posts 226

Brazil are like 3 levels below Spain and they probably won't make the QF.

Belgium will be punished by the first more skilled team they face.

Argentina and Poland are the worst on this WC.


Spitfiree   Bulgaria. Jun 25 2018 21:22. Posts 8455

Fuck Iran not scoring that basically free goal was the most upsetting thing ever, wouldve loved to see CR7 cry and go home


Expiate   Bulgaria. Jun 25 2018 21:43. Posts 226

This WC delivers heavily from the very start and the upcoming clashes promise a lot of drama. It's really hard to pick a clear winner, so many great teams.

Germany last in their group.
I was rooting for Iran aswell as Nigeria. Close for both.

i love how maradona is stealing the show


Spitfiree   Bulgaria. Jun 27 2018 21:32. Posts 8455

Maradonna is a pitiful junkie nowadays, thats kind of sad imo

top3 teams from last WC -> 1 didnt qualify for WC, 1 finished last in their group, 1 barely got out of the group and will lose in the round of 16


Expiate   Bulgaria. Jun 27 2018 23:12. Posts 226

Maradona acts like this on purpose - the more noise he creates the better for the weak Argentinian team. It's like some people who predict the finalists - the more you put there Argentina, the more people start to believe they can play well. We have to see what France thinks now.

Brazil vs Mexico is going to deliver hard.

And I really want Croatia to go far. It is make the final now or never for them.

Btw, the second from group G goes in the a lot better bracket literally freerolling until the SF if Colombia does not place 1st in their group. So how are going Belgium and England to decide this - make penalties?
