    Reminds me a bit of our 1990 group, Scotland, Sweden and Costa Rica, in that I could very well see us getting through on nothing but 1 goal wins. I certainly hope for more though. Breaking bunkers is what we need to focus on anyways.

    Assuming we win our group, potential Brazil x France Semi Finals. If Argentina finish 2nd, they will be in our bracket.

    R16 would most likely be Mexico. QF would be one team from G/H ... not bad. Could be England / Colombia / Belgium at worst.

    I wouldn't be too high on Mexico. I can see the other two teams in that group advancing.

    Why is that ? I don't follow Mexico at all, so not sure about their recent form ... but they always seem to make it out of the group no matter what's thrown at them ... regardless of their pre-WC form. Sweden have nothing special and South Korea had their one shining moment in 2002.

    Ticket to any match?
    There is no guarantee you will get a hotel room even with a reservation. So you get to Russia with a ticket and end up on the street. Hotel rooms are at $3,000 per night for a decent one.

    The hotels in Sao Paulo were so cheap during the WC.

    I wonder if there's a psychology at play with Mexico getting pasted by Germany B in Russia.

    They haven't been impressive vs any decent teams in official games. Chile pasted them 7-0 in the 2016 Copa America and there is the Germany B trashing. All of their other games were very close. They need to get results.

    I think for Germany, the group looks harder on paper than it actually is. The real fun will come in the quarterfinals.

    No way we come in second.
    I don’t see any one of the other teams winning a match against Brasil.

    Are they saving hotel availability until a certain date? I did a few searches in Samara for the Round of 16. Absolutely nothing available.

    I don’t get people cheering for Iceland. Yeah they are underdogs and the fact that they have a super small population is cool ... but I can’t get behind bunkering teams .

    Eh... Bunkering is really the only option for teams like Iceland.

    I think it will be brutal to get a hotel in Samara. Honestly, looks like a small, boring city. Prob hardly any hotels as it is.

    What a shitty opening game ... 2 worst ranked teams in the WC. I will probably skip it for the first time ever.
