2018 FIFA World Cup



  • Portugal - Spain, HOLY SHIT! Did you guys watch that? What an amazing end to this evening. Incredible goals. Costa's first one was just phenomenal, what a solo act. He WANTED that goal. And Nacho's cannonball! Man, I couldn't stop smiling seeing that.

    But of course CR7 was the man of the match. Hat trick, and all three goals were from completely different situations. That last one was just perfect, no question.

    What a game. A future classic, I would think. I had no favourite between these two, so I'm happy with the result. Just a super entertaining game to watch.

  • god I hate Ronaldo, also De Gea now I hate you as well

    Glad that Iran won, even if it was an unfortunate end for Morocco



  • Iceland got a point from the Argentina game, not too shabby.



  • Yeah that Spain-Portugal match was definitely a classic, Ronaldo was so focused and determined, love him or hate him, can't deny he's one of the all-time greatest. And very entertaining for a neutral indeed.

    France struggled against Australia but got the 3 points in the end so that's what counts. The coach actually aligned the exact starting 11 I had been calling for so I can't complain, hopefully they'll improve match after match because that wasn't a world champion performance.



  • @sentinel-beach Argentina was pretty shabby though, they are but a shadow of their former glory, but yeah Iceland showed they are no joke.

    France was very boring and they are gonna have to step it up if they don't want to waste this incredible generation of players.

    I expected Denmark to be good but I was impressed by them despite that, really good showing.

    Oh and Kasper Schmeicel is a goal keeping god



  • Haha, well only really just woke up so I missed a lot of the match but Peru did not deserve that loss. They were so good.



  • dammit Germany now the Mexicans are never going to shut the hell up

    and we showed that our team is completely innofensive, if they couldn't do anything against Serbia we are done for, a tie against the Swiss would be our best outcome I think



  • Germany, wtf? This feels wrong. Granted, Mexico was very good on the first half, very active, and Germany's defence was full of holes, but still. The second half looked much better, but nope, the final touches were missing. Now the Germans need to demolish Sweden and South Korea.



  • Switzerland managed to make things interesting in that group with that tie of Brazil. Really pretty goals from both teams. Effective.



  • Yay for Mexico, what a perfomance. Ochoa was a wall! And Lozano, this is your time to shine! He was my hero in my FIFA 17 career mode, glad to see real life has caught up.

    In light of Argentina's, Germany's and Brazil's results, France's scrappy win doesn't feel so bad anymore! There's always some magic in the first matches, as the smaller teams go all out and big teams aren't perfectly calibrated yet. I would expect more "normal" results in the second and third matches, but who knows.

    Now I dont think Sweden will make it out of the group play, instead Im thinking it will be Germany and Mexico making it out. So now Im hoping for Iceland to make it further in the tournament! <3



  • @lotias You were too quick to judge, but I get that mentality. :) You guys won! Granqvist's penalty kick did the trick. This was essentially a must win for Sweden, as the Germany and Mexico games will be tougher. Interesting to see how everything will go.



  • That Germany Sweden match on Saturday is an interesting one, Germany can't lose and even a draw might not be enough.

    Belgium looked good 2nd half, that De Bruyne cross for their 2nd goal, great technique, after Russia they've been the most convincing team so far.

    As England do, they just got away with it and the nation goes wild. Poor 2nd half, Tunisia kept giving the ball away too easily, apart from the penalty couldn't trouble Pickford. Think Belgium will have a field day against them.



  • A kind of a surprise from Japan, cool! And what a start for the game, the first red card of the tournament and an immediate goal. Now Group H will be really interesting after this result.



  • Group H was already a super interesting group so that result really adds to it. Really looking forward to Poland Senegal later now



  • Glorious Nippon coming out of nowhere with the win as well as Senegal make things very interesting indeed, dissapointed of seeing Egypt's result I was really hoping we would get to see more from them.



  • Wow, I think a lot of the international media must be pretty surprised with Russia. I doubt anyone was expecting them to get two wins in this tournament.



  • Some awesome results from Group H, Colombia Poland is already going to be a do or die match!

    I expected Russia to go through, but not that convincingly, that's awesome!
