    I can't say I'm surprised. The guy seems to be not that bright. Ironically when it comes to celebrating himself he shows tremendous acumen.

    It’s brasil’s second team in the World Cup though! I mean they should be able to at least draw with Cameroon m, if not win!

    The triangle theory never works. A beats B, B beats C so A beats C is not a realistic scenario in any sport.

    Styles make matchups. Spains ball control might give a team nightmares that is used to having the ball but be totally comfortable for a team that sits deep and absorbs pressure.

    Didn't Portugal go all the way to the trophy on draws and marginal results?

    What matters is the silverware. Not the statistics.

    Speaking about Portugal. This is a quality team as far as I'm concerned. I said Germany are simply too average in quality right now and he replied "so Portugal is better?" and I replied does Germany have a player like Bruno Fernandes right now?

    Because I don't think so. Portugal is being underestimated I feel.

    but this is not A team beat B team and B team beat C team so A team is better than C

    They literally had the same results vs the same opponents except Costa Rica had one of the worst displays ever vs Spain so they got more goals.

    I’m not saying Spain didn’t deserve to go through, but the tweet is accurate about the reaction. Everything is chaos for Germany while Spain are a favorite even though they got the same exact results on the pitch

    I know. The second eleven should have done better.

    The reason Spain did better vs Costa Rica is because their style matches better with Costa Rica. Also let's be honest. That ball was as close to being goal kick as an ants asscheek. This one slight difference mixes up the group ridiculously.

    Germany had time for this nonsense.

    It’s like I predicted after the first couple of games .. the refs are letting too much go .
    The cynical players know they can whack a few even injure them ( Neymar now Jesus ) without even getting a warning !!

    Two of the world’s best forwards are now effectively out of the WC .

    Also Messi and Mitrovic , Foden , Kane plus tigers are all carrying ankle / foot injuries.

    Best case scenario I believe right now is probably QF. He is supposedly training with the ball already. He might be on the bench in R16.

    Very, very dumb. It could also put her husband in a rather tight spot, as Real Madrid conducts a lot of business with companies from the Middle-East. In fact, it's not only dumb, it's also unbelievably disrespectful, as I'm sure she is well aware that these people are praying and that praying is not something to make these dumb jokes about, and if you do (which you should not), then don't post it on the internet where it remains forever. But like I started with, it goes back to her just being dumb I guess.

    It will never cease to mildly amuse me that there is a man on this earth named Denzel Dumfries and he is NOT American.

    God damn. Just………. How do you not score that. It was a gift. He was onside and probably thought he wasn’t, that’s the only thing I can think off that explains the miss.

    Beautiful team goal. Reminiscent of our goal vs Ajax in 2011-12.

    US building well with the ball, but bad decisions in the final third hurting so far. Plus the Dutch are playing really deep waiting to counter.

    What a snooze fest!
    Doesn’t look like USA understand the importance of this fixture. They’re hardly trying.
