FIFA World Cup 2018 - Russia



  • They did it.... just!



  • Croatia 🇭🇷 2 v 1 🇮🇸 Iceland

    Rested most of our important players and still got the W. Feels good. 3 games, 3 wins. Denmark in 1st knockout round. Im feeling confident about that one. IDEMO HRVATSKA!! 😄



  • Knockout stages bracket is complete. There is no more room for error. What are your prediction for 1st knockout round? 😄

  • @majstor-matt

    I think quarters will be
    Uruguay v France
    Mexico (yes I think they could upset an underperforming Brazil) v Belgium
    Spain v Croatia
    Sweden v England

    Some of those are wild guesses and hopes; the only certainty is Croatia I think.
    Hardest to predict are Uruguay v Portugal and England v Columbia (quarter-finalists last time).



  • Taking into account all the errors being made by Referees (VAR) protecting some national teams, I don't think France will be able to beat Argentina.

    Uruguay * Portugal » Portugal
    France * Argentina » Argentina
    Brazil * Mexico » Brazil
    Belgium * Japan » Belgium
    Spain * Russia » Russia
    Croatia * Denmark » Croatia
    Sweden * Switzerland » Sweden
    Colombia * England » Colombia

  • Got to say that I love seeing all of you ahving faith in Croatia 😄 I really hope we can make next step and win this one. Would be important win for us as that would be first knockout win for Croatia on World Cup since that magical 1998. 😄 Let's go!! 😄

    As for my picks :

    1. Portugal - I expect ugly match which will be decided by the GOAT from the free kick! Vamos Portugal! 1:0

    2. Argentina - Im going for surprise here just because it would be epic to see clash of all clashes in Quarters. Messi vs CR. Just imagine the headlines 😄 2:1 fo Argentina.

    3. Brazil by 2 goals. I love Mexican team, they play passionate and beautiful football.. but simply Brasil is too strong I am afraid.

    4. Belgium without much troubles in my eyes.

    5. Spain. As much as I'd like to see Russia in 1/4finals I just dont see that happening.

    6. CROATIA! Ajmooooo! 😄

    7. Sweden. I simply love the organization and structure in their game. They do not have single pure world class players yet they kicked out Netherlands, Italy, made troubles for France, and then on the World Cup they demolished Mexico and kicket out WC's Germany. I simply love them. I hope their run continues.

    8. Colombia. If James plays. I would love to see England out because of that disgraceful last round where they lost on purpose to Belgium counting on the fact that this part of the draw is easier. I hope that will backfire and Colombia will show them that they made the wrong choice 😉

  • @majstor-matt You think Argentina will beat France or are you just hoping? Tbf neither have been that impressive.

    Agree with what you say about England!!



  • How did everyone pass today with no world cup? 🤣



  • @ruby2003 France are small favourites here for me as they have better structued team. BUt I agree, not a single on of them have showed anything great so far. But as I sad, Im going for Argentina as it would be epic to see Messi v Ronaldo h2h on World Cup.

    I'm glad that France beat Argentina... tbh was expecting several errors from referees to help them go into next round, same way they did to help them qualify on group stage!

    I saw that they were a little advantage over the mistakes but we had a huge Mbappe this afternoon!

    Messi is not the best player in the world as some commentators say, he has only one goal in 4 games! Cristiano Ronaldo is already 4 out of 3M against Spain

    Kane has 5 in 2 games. Best in the world!



  • @majstor-matt It would've been epic, pity they're both out.. 😞



  • @ruby2003 Yeah, I guessed that they will meet, but not on a pitch, they met on airport waiting for plane for home.. 😕

    Big day for Croatia today, COME ON guys, lets repeat something like that magical 1998!! 😄



  • Btw did you guys know, Lillian Thuram played 142 times (over 14 years) for France National Team, he scored only 2 goals. Those 2 against Croatia in Semifinal of World Cup 1998 😞

  • @deif-13 nan, but I took an example between the 2 best on their CDM performance, 1 it's too weak. After watching the club performance and Kane is out of play there.
    I still have great doubt about Messi out of Barcelona, I wonder if he would not score 2x less goal in a smaller club! Besides, that's probably why he stays there ...
