    2018 FIFA World Cup

    If Russia beats Croatia, England might actually back their way into a World Cup Final. Can’t think of a team in the past that had a road as easy as the English have gotten, but I’ll wait for dfwabel to pull something up. Harry Kane also seems a shoe-in for the Golden Boot (get it?, ok I’ll stop) despite half of his goals being penalties. I’m fine with Kane, but it’s a bit of a letdown for the tournament’s top scorer to be a cheeky penalty merchant as well.

    Those first half goals may be two of the worst I’ve seen... hopefully Croatia puts the Danes to bed in the second half.

    I think Pavard just scored the goal of the tournament so far. Of all the people to score it as well.

    Hmph... no. Especially with some of Sampaoli’s lineup decisions. Argentina have several exciting talented youngsters, guys like Pavón and Lo Celso but are continually starting guys like Perez and Meza. None of the teams in their way have looked very impressive, but Argentina look vulnerable at the back, outclassed in midfield and surprisingly ineffective up front. I would be surprised if they knock off France.

    Ugh, it is going to be insufferable if Ronaldo wins the Golden Boot...

    I feel like I’m in the minority here, but I actually was pulling for Panama. Damn Belgians, they’ll go out sooner or later. Roberto Martinez lead sides usually tend to start leaking goals sooner or later.

    Alexi Lalas is insufferable. These other FOX guys aren’t great but this dude sounds like the most arrogant moron.

    Leaving Leroy Sane at home looks even more idiotic now. Germany lack pace on the wings. Might wanna have a guy who hit double figures in goals & assists than a guy who has been sitting on PSG’s bench.

    I like Croatia. Very few teams have a midfield that can match theirs, plus they have plenty of experience to go around. Only need to keep Lovren in line and they can make a deep run.

    Reminiscent of the headlines after the US-England game in 2010. But seriously, great for Iceland.

    Spain should have won that. First penalty was incredibly soft, De Gea channeled his inner Robbie Green/Loris Karius as he fumbled away that second one too. That FK was a damn beauty though. I hate Ronaldo, but he’s great and especially great at punishing others for their mistakes. As usual, Portugal were outplayed but they managed to scrap out a point.

    It’s not like either of them had much of a chance beating Spain or Portugal... Speaking of, hopefully the aforementioned matchup makes up for all the lackluster contests so far.
