    Brazil missing chances to make the game safe. Sticking to my prediction :D

    1. France
    2. Brazil
    3. Argentina
    4. Spain
    5. Netherlands
    6. England
    7. Switzerland
    8. Croatia

    Brazil looked really good and relaxed. Think France is more equipped and business like to handle adversity and will go with them for top of the rankings.

    Croatia weakest of the lot and they just barely beat out Italy for 8th spot.

    World Cup is more competitive than I expected and despite thinking there would be a break from the traditional teams we are still stuck with the usual suspects so far.

    People are questioning the Brazil PK.

    Its unfortunate for the Korean defender, but he clearly kicks the guys foot.

    So far, our players have been doing great at the WC. Bruno, Casemiro, Martinez, Rashford, Varane all have been their country's top players. Even Harry has been looking decent.

    I am enjoying Morocco, would love to see them win. Portugal, if they win vs Morocco would be fun to see.

    Yes oh my god passing for the sake of it it seems. It takes a high degree of skill to do it but it is sooo boring. I swear to you, I have fallen asleep watching them play before.

    That was separate. Cameras also caught him talking shit about the coach taking him off and doing his typical hissy fit thing. That’s why he’s benched. Coach even mentioned he would handle it internally.

    Dalot is doing really well this game.

    Hopefully he continues on in leaps and bounds. Turned his career around this year

    Felix has impressive control, missing a killer ball.

    He's not one of my favourites, but he's another player for Portugal that's been stunted by Ronaldo.

    Felix has space to play in tonight because Ramos is staying up, not dropping back to try to get the ball
