Brazil has been stolen against the Swiss.

Neymar is far behind of Ronaldo and Romário (for not talking about Pelé) in terms of prestige for brazilian fans of soccer.
you are reading much teenage magazines! Ronaldo was the same in his time with Daniela Cicarelli and other wives

I'll check it out. England were denied two clear penalties last night which would have been given had VAR been requested by the ref. Seems it's not being used consistently.

Edit: Russia V Egypt - Just saw Mo Salah being brought down in the box (and the ref hesitated to use VAR and only gave in after the Egyptian players protested. The penalty was awarded and taken beautifully to make the score 3-1. I do wonder what would have happened had the scores been level!

Stop and think for a moment about some of the players the Belgian team currently has:-


Tibaut Courtois (goalkeeper)
Jan Vertonghen
Vincent Kompany
Thomas Vermaelen
Kevin De Bruyne
Romelu Lukaku
Dries Mertens
Eden Hazard


If you know anything about football you will know that is an impressive array of talent in one team.
Yes I agree! Belgium is strong favorite to win this world cup! They have a impressive talented generation in all positions, that is only common for big schools of soccer as Brazil, Germany or Argentina.

Russia looking fantastic so far! Outscoring Saudi Arabia and Egypt 8-1, with the lone goal being a penalty. This is insane! I know those aren't the strongest teams, but goodness, Russia has totally dominated so far. I think this Russian side has real potential, Uruguay will be our first test against a true good team

They'll meet either Spain or Portugal in the last sixteen! They've been impressive but if they can get past either of those, I think they could possibly make the final!

Wouldn't it be awesome if Iceland won the World Cup in only their first appearance? That would definitely turn heads...
