OT: A friendly World Cup thread?


#41

Wise words my friend :slight_smile:

The real games start Saturday!

Good Luck!


#42

This game is dope. And not having a dog in this fight makes it even better.

GO FÚTBOL!


#43

Mbappe is unreal. What a second half though.


#44

Hat trick for Mbappe?! :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


#45

If they could all be like that, the 2nd round won’t be too bad will it?


#46

Although, me thinks the next one will be slightly more attritional.
But you never know with His Nibs involved, ay.


#47

:hotdog::hotdog::hotdog::hotdog:


#48

What a game! Mbappe, what a player! That run for the first goal reminded me of the original Ronaldo. Great game with a deserved winner!


#49

E for England. :joy: To think a song about ecstasy once were the world cup theme for England, haha.

John Barnes rapping! Crazy. And Jack Wilshere time-warping to appear in the video. :stuck_out_tongue:


#50

I am salivating at the prospect of France vs Uruguay!!
30/06/18 Day of the GOAT slayers.
:wink:


#51

3/1 for France


#52

Is that odds or score?


#53

Score :smile_cat:


#54

Uruguay :uruguay: v France :fr:

Brazil :brazil: v Belgium :belgium:

England :black_flag:󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 v Sweden :sweden:

Russia :ru: v Croatia :croatia:

What are you looking for?
What are your predictions?


#55

2-1
2-1
1-2
1-2

Final:

Uruguay :uruguay: v Croatia :croatia:

But any other combination is fine by me! Just nice football and fair play!


#56

Uruguay is without Cavani, so France to win.
I hope Belgium beat Brazil.
England vs Sweden - I have to hope for England win due to the Spurs contingent, but been impressed with the resilience of Sweden!
Croatia will hopefully beat Russia.

France to win semi against Belgium.
Croatia to beat England in other semi.

France to edge it over Croatia in the final.


So, most likely the complete opposite of this! :smiley:


#57

After that ENG v COL game, as long as England don’t win it, I’ll be fine. Both of those teams played the worst brand of football. I just hope no one who hates the sport watched it, because it would only confirm the reasons they dislike it: manufactured melodrama, cheap play, and flopping left and right.

Belgium and Croatia looked strong up until this last game, so I’ll be curious if they rebound. I’d personally like Croatia to win it at this point.


#58

Well said.


#59

Amen, brother. Especially after ENG-COL debacle.


#60

Que paso?! That’s terrible news. I’m not rooting for anyone at this point (just rotting for soccer!) but watching Uruguay’s front line has been a pleasure.
