2018 FIFA World Cup

Recommended Posts

When you have Gonzalo Higuaín, Sergio Aguero, and Paulo Dybala at your disposal, and you leave all three on the bench for the biggest game of the year, you deserve to get knocked out. I’m a huge Messi fan and was rooting for Argentina but Sampaoli looked like he had no idea what he was doing.

With an honourable mention to Mauro Icardi, who despite finishing joint top scorer in Serie A didn't warrant a place in the Argentina squad.

I knew better than to pick Portugal to go to the semis!

Are you forgetting Zlatan? Hahahahaha!!!! The fact that Harry Kane could score as many goals in a World Cup this year as Messi has in 3 shows that as great a player as he is he could never replicate league form in the World Cup. The fact he was given player of the tournament in 2014 was an embarrassment when Higuain was the one winning them games up until the final.

Uruguay against France will be fun. The winner of that game will go to the final.

I second that. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it so far. And I think it’s got a chance to get even better.

Roger Bennett has said this has been his favorite so far on more than one occasion.

Sounds like the equivalent of if Trotz had benched Ovechkin/Backstrom/Kuznetsov.

MOD EDIT We don't need get anyone out of here. The World Cup happens once every four years. Three of the the prior final four teams are already gone. MOD EDIT

 

Please, let's keep discussion focused on the FIFA World Cup, rather than critiquing how other members of the CCSLC choose to discuss the tournament. Thank you.

Wait I don’t get this. What? Uruguay literally hasn’t won a World Cup since Harry Truman was president, why do they need to get out of here?

Well then. That's settled... apparently.

 

I'm not sure if Cryuff, Puskas, Platini, Eusebio, Best, Raúl, Kahn, van Basten (or their families) to work consider your post as a compliment or not.

I can understand the hate for Suarez after his antics the last two World Cups, but that team has played the best defense of any squad in the competition and should be lauded instead of vilified. And to be honest if you were fighting for a place in the semi-finals, wouldn't you take a handball over an open net goal? I would. And the only reason people hated him for that was that an African team would have most likely made the finals if Ghana had one.

The only reason Uruguay needs to get out is because they're in the way of the rightful winners.

lol. I can name from the top of my head one european and one south american better than both of them who didn't win with even better teammates. Cruijff (IMO the actual best european player of all time) and Zico.

One can only hope the hosts win the next game.

Why? So we get to think it's fixed like Argentina 1978?
