Just a reminder: the first match is going to happen tomorrow at 17:00 Central European Summer Time.
The match will be Russia vs. Saudi Arabia.
Hoping it won't be boring.

and me and SSX are the only people who talk about football anyway lol

EDIT: also I'm laughing at Spain

oh I'm gonna guess Iceland will make it. I expect Croatia to perform as badly as in the recent tournaments (they just don't seem to make a proper team)

in that sense, HUH

England will probably do shit like they have done in the recent World cups.

Germany defeated, this is what I think about it.

1) KO round now already starts with the 2nd group game, we could be this time's laughingstocks that Spain, Italy and England were last time.
2) even if that works, it's most likely round of 16 against Brazil, congrats.
3) Germany earlier still placed well after losing preliminary games. Down but not out yet.
4) Germany also could have gotten 5 goals like Spain
5) Germany also had bad bad luck in the final offensive; Ochoa is a fucking Cerberus (Kroos' free kick)
6) France would also have maybe lost against Mexico with their yesterday's performance
7) Italy is not even here so look at how they're feeling
8) Germany has enthralled for almost eight years with their "children's football", now the world has learnt how to deal with it, same that happened with Spain's "tiqui-taqua" before.
9) ousting Sané is a horrible blunder, he has the speed that Germany is missing so much.
10) I'm consoling myself with the 7:1.

Croatia won 3-0 against Argentina, thus also succeeded at advancing further on.
This was an even bigger surprise than Germany v. Mexico ending up 0-1.

<ShadowStarX> 10:59 AM who are you rooting for today
Croatia and England here
<Cedur> 10:59 AM same
<ShadowStarX> 11:00 Sweden relies a bit too much on brute force and Russia was quite lucky against Spain
plus I like those two teams anyway
they are just not so amazing at handling pressure
<Cedur> 11:01 I'd say England has a 40% chance at final and Croatia has 30% chance
but France vs Belgium is most likely an anticipated endgame anyway
I'd say Belgium is best balanced
<ShadowStarX> 11:02 France v Belgium will def. be interesting
also I've done some research
and the last time when the final match was a rematch of a group stage one was in 1962
haven't really paid attention to bronze matches though
so if England and Belgium both get to the final
that'd be a rematch
<Cedur> 11:05 lol indeed (the tournament bracket only allows a rematch in the final)
<ShadowStarX> 11:05 or the bronze match
if they both lose
