I'll be happy if England get out of the group stages.

It's tough to pick a winner this time. France have the most depth but I don't think they have as much quality as Brazil. Germany probably have the weakest side on paper in terms of the favourites but they're the international Real Madrid. They always find that extra gear in the big tournaments.

I think Moscow is only one or two hours ahead of CET. As far as I've seen matches will start between 4 an 9 PM. That's ok.

Pretty much my thoughts. We'll have to see how good Brazil has recovered from 2014 tournament though. And France didn't play as convincing in qualification as I had expected.
I think Spain still has a great side.

really early mornings for me for some games. france-australia is actually at 3 am on the 16th, so i'm thinking of just staying up to watch it and go to bed.

the knockout stages have games at 7 and 11 am my time. i'm usually awake by 7 so i guess it's no big adjustment for me.

i think france will at least make the quarters, unless there's some 2010-style meltdown. i still haven't forgotten that, unfortunately.

we have so much talent it's ludicrous. some of my favorites (lacazette, martial, mandanda) are unfortunately missing out. hopefully dimitri payet can find his free kick form on the international stage.

that kind of destabilization is showing now, as they're currently down 1-0 to portugal.

i'm sure if egypt had a healthy mo salah they could at least fight to a draw but dropped that game 1-0.

we have a work thing where we can bet a pound on three teams and if any of them win the winnings are split between everyone who voted for that team
i went germany, russia and japan

if germany win i get basically nothing because everyone went for germany
but if japan win.....

I want Germany to win but I’d also like Sweden or Australia.

What a game!!!

Cristiano Ronaldo lives up to his name. That was an excellent kick to tie the game.

Morocco wins the game for Iran.

Saw the highlights... that CR7 free kick....bloody hell.

Felt pretty sorry for Egypt, I was totally on team Iran though so happy with that. Gonna be able to catch the first two matches tonight!

Australia were unlucky against France. I thought they deserved a point.

agree. looking like a difficult group. really hoping iceland hold on here

iceland is so much better than i thought. you'd think that any team would break against so much attacking power.
3 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 6/16/18 - 1:59:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
Their entire team played defense

Mexicoooooooo! Great goal. Bossing Germany. I doubt it will stay 1-0, tho

Hirving Lozano is gonna be a star.

I know because I had him on Football Manager 2015 and he ended up being a legend

The chinese have some weird love affair with germans (probably because they love that boredom only germans can create) so it has been great watching them being so pissed off at half time
3 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 6/17/18 - 12:52:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
Or maybe it will stay 1-0

Germany-Mexico, great game as expected. Mexico winning was unexpected. Congrats to them. It looks like they will go far.
