Obviously they're both very good teams, but if we can meet Portugal, it would be nice. Im watching the Morocco-Portugal match, and Portugal look beatable as long as you can keep a certain player quiet

My prediction about Ronaldo still stands, 4 goals in 2 matches - Pele material.

Haven't watched the Portugal/Morocco game but I heard Morocco outplayed them and were unlucky to have lost. I think if that's the case, Russia will do them over.

Edit: Just saw Pepe's dive after being tapped on the shoulder. Really embarrasing!

^ Spain currently struggling vs Iran...I'd say 0:0 or 1:0 Spain with super boring goal by Diego Costa or Iniesta.

My quote from a week ago still stands...

I have never been so ashamed of this team... For the past 2-3 years we have had tremendous luck and ugly football... if during the Euro 2016 at least we knew how to defend, now not even that... it's just sad.

Morrocco pretty much bulldozed Portugal during the match... poor guys played wonderfully their 2 matches and ended up losing both unfairly.

stoichkov is a distinguished sports TV host for a major Spanish speaking channel in latin america.

He is the guru there.... highly praised and admired. They call him *The crack*

Now he is in Russia transmitting for that channel for the world cup.

His Spanish is mostly due to his Barcelona days + Spanish isn't hard at all compared to even English (I don't speak it lol but from the little I know it seems like Bulgarian or other Slavic language literally translated).

Then again Portuguese sounds a bit funny...in a good way lol.
