As I wrote in the 2014 World Cup thread: "Your thoughts, predictions, opinions, and reactions are welcome. I'm sure that the Football thread regulars will be here in abundance and at their grouchy, tribal best as well as those casual fans who only watch the World Cup. Here's to an (hopefully) exciting tournament..."

England's third game should be a dead rubber against Belgium.

They cannot have had an easier draw. Every single banana skin avoided. Even the second round match looks easy!

At first glance there doesn't appear to be a "Group of Death" like there was in 2014, so that's a plus for all concerned.

Brazil and Argentina always get the easy-on-paper groups, it seems.

In a rematch of the 2014 group stage, Nigeria face off vs. Argentina again and Colombia play Japan.

Are you kidding? I think Group D is the group of death!

Argentina have a cracking attack but their defence is rubbish. Nigeria beat them 4-2 recently. Iceland are incredibly well organised and will fancy their chances against Argentina's defence, as England found to their cost in 2016. And Croatia are always dangerous. It's incredibly close and anyone could qualify from that group. That's the group I'm most looking forward to.

I hope our old Superstar (Suarez) and our new Superstar (Salah) knock the shit out of Russia so they fail and don't even get out the group.
That's if the russkies haven't already bought the ref and tournament!!
Maybe they will just fake the news and have the world know they won it anyway.

In many ways the build-up is more enjoyable than the actual tournament.

Can England manage to do what Wales did and outfox a team that included, Hazard, De Bruyne and Lukaku?

I'm thinking not.

Thinking not, or pretty much know for sure?
We dont have the underdog spirit of wales and irelands.
England have prem league billy big bananas who are made to look good by their foreign teammates.
Since 96 they put on an enfland shirt and every young turk who gets a cap and plays with no shackles and impresses, soon succumbs to the fear and frightened rabbit football every wave of national team has suffered.
Same players, Premier league lions, national team wimps.
We can pray for an easy group, but really thats coz we all know theyre shit and they never add up to sum of their parts.

D, F, H look interesting groups. If Argentina slip up on one game then they could easily go out.

The first game - Russia v Saudi Arabia, must be the most underwhelming opening match of all time. They are the two worst ranked teams in the tournament. Bet that one's on ITV.

Group A: Russia, Uruguay, Egypt, Saudi Arabia

Group B: Portugal, Spain, Iran, Morocco

Group G: Belgium, England, Tunisia, Panama



I am look forward at these, specialmente the group which is in espain and see england lossers! Include rusia too because is interesant foreskin that like the country nation of USSR hammer and skype they can not qualify due to scandal outrage of all the soviet athletics, every one of they have so many poison of testostrono that the man train of team is now to hiding in the America of north! Ha ha, including Putin has know the facts of the gigant penile mussels! But of course he is in the power and do not say admit to fact, now he think his state is popular again like when Lenin and Groucho! I say not more, he spy satelite observe our keywords and I say KGB and zap big missill from space die me! Ha ha! Boom! I kill now! Ha ha!

Pleasure of my beatiful boys country, Group B, you watch you see, we play in group of Portugal next to spain over the frontier, but poor country, cheap people, not futbolistical. Good bye Portugal! Iran, goodbye! You say you win for the nuclear arms, but this is futbol no war of the galaxies! Morocco! Ha ha! Good bye! Again like portugal you stick in spain, but more poor and badder. No roads, no airport, just sands. No futbol ground for practice with ball trick. Good bye!

Ha ha! I luagffh at the group of england potatos! Belgium worse for not famous for anything apart of Hercule's parrot and brussels coliflors! Tunisia! Sand and too many sun! Panama republic of the banana! No futbolistically good teams with you englands, but they win you for your bad!

Then my predict is spain win, england bye bye, you all bad lossers! You wait and you see and you cry like the baby carrot! Ha ha! I want thank my mother, and per haps my father, for make me born in beatiful best land of futbolistic genies!
