Yay, it’s only a week ahead!

I thought this event needs a thread of its own than the Football/Soccer thread.


If anyone interested than the small number of football fans here; SoccerDude, cyfoyjvx, Lucien21, Wilco, Nomadsoul, Timovieman, please ‘all’ show a bit your enthusiasm by changing your avatar to anything that is related to your country; and that could be a very nice touch of you. i think We discussed this before but the WC was still far ahead, maybe its time we all do it together.

Nice! I’ll change my avatar later.

Think the favorites for this year are Germany and Brazil. Germany still has the same strong group from last years and Brazil qualifying campaign was amazing. They’ve come a long way since the 7-1.
After those 2 I would say France and Spain.
A group of teams that might surprise I would include Belgium, Argentina, Portugal (ehehe) and England (?). Of course there’s always a couple of other teams that come from out of nowhere to reach the semis of something.

As for my team (Portugal) I hope we at least do better than the last couples of World Cups, Don’t think we’ll very well in the first game against Spain but a qualification against the other 2 is possible but hard since we don’t do very well against very defensive teams. Team seems a lot better than 4 years ago at least and don’t think Ronaldo is injured this time. Old defense is the major problem.

And go Egypt!

Just about Kick off time.

Russia hasn’t won in 7 game and Saudia Arabia has never won a World Cup game, they are the two lowest ranking teams in the competition.

Watch out for a cracking game Meh

(Scotland didn’t qualify so I’m just bitter Crazy )

As Scotland didn’t qualify, I drew them in the office sweepstake and part of my family came from here…I’m supporting

or the usual Scottish fallback - “Anyone but England”

I’ve changed my avatar even though we’re not in it and I don’t know who to support yet (possibly Russia).

The Saudis play good football going forward (I wish Ireland would play like this) but they just don’t have the physicality to compete.

England (?)

Good God, no! And I’m not an ABE (anyone but England).

They have a thoroughly uninspiring manager who has made safe and uninspired choices to make up a squad with a paucity of talent outside two or three players.

They don’t have the quality to move things incisively through midfield, poor defence and never have the togetherness to fight for it anyway.

I hope I’m wrong as the more big sides that show up, the better the tournament will be.

Or maybe I’m just bitter that Southgate didn’t pick Shelvey or Lascelles. Wink

Salah won’t play

Ah that’s a real shame; I was looking forward to watching him, the highlight of that match.

The last news I read had him 100% playing.

Didn’t see the opener but think it’s good when the host nation wins. The Saudi Arabia defense was lost, maybe nervous about first game.
Will try to catch Egypt-Uruguay tomorrow and will watch Portugal of course.

Wow Saudi got destroyed. Reminds me of 98 when they made of Klose the lifetime top scorer of the world cup. I’m hoping Egypt will win tomorrow *fingers crossed*

Btw, what a mess with the whole Spain/Lopetegui/Real Madrid situation… They couldn’t have waited until after the World Cup?
