Not yet, but I could do without my hopes being built up by England in the first 3 games, only to be shattered in the next game

I can hardly imagine that Russias team will survive the group phase. Actually I don't have opinion who is going to win, but I am pretty sure that it won't be Germany this year. Maaaaybe when we get into a penalty shootout against England in the final.

Time from south America team to win? Not sure if Brazil recovered since last time facing Germany.

BTW, no doping joke!

Can’t believe the tournament is being held there.
Amazed that England fans are still going.
Sadly I see a tainted and hooligan dominated event.

Football is the loser this time.

Spain will be World Champions when Iniesta is in shape.
Commerzbank has run a simulation and say that Germany will be champions, but they somwhat did'nt consider that Germany has lost the latest games.

I hope there won't be terror. Or arbitrary arrests by Russia's police.

I didn't expect the coaching problems with Spain, that they had to dismiss Lopetegui. Portugal had a quick goal and Spain was a bit disarranged in the first half. In the second they took the lead well-deserved, then they were a bit too much in love with their passing and tiki taka and forgot to shoot on the goal. So Portugal came back.

Portugal knows how to get a result. They didn't even have so much control in the match. One penalty, one keeper's fault, one free kick. Not so much from inside the game to say it in Denglish, but in the end you can't beat them. That's a title winning quality.

Spain will implode after this, for much of the second half they carried on like they thought it was over, as did the fans.

Lucky for Spain that the group is one of the easiest only two good teams in it, so they are virtually guaranteed to make it through.

Today no one played the stars from the sky.

But Argentina and Germany usually have their titles one after another: 74-78, 86-90 (14-18?)

Its funny how Russia gets criticized so much but when people travel there it's better than there own living conditions.

It´s all set for England. All other favourites do not play convincing.

Mexican players say they can beat anyone now, but Germany has been weak, not Mexico that strong. (Germany almost lost to Saudi Arabia before the World Cup.)

Good joke.

Surely all the favourites have either lost or drawn, but seriously. England won't win, doubt they will win tomorrow, we are a bunch of chokers since 1966.

Boring. There are no striking heads left. Only milk face idiots with too much money and club titles.

WTF are the VAR operators doing?

Didn't know Kane was playing under the new WWE rules so being slammed to the floor was allowed.

And this Colombian idiot was the same who stole Mexico 2 goals in the last Confed cup. Ridiculous FIFA.
