My country didn't qualify (we've been disaster since the 90s...) and my favorite Italy didn't either.

My only left choice is Japan lol. But out of the ones who have a real chance, I've no idea.

Would be nice to see a "dark horse" say Serbia, South Korea, Portugal, Colombia, Egypt.

But my understanding is that Brazil and Germany are once again the favorites, how boring!

That won't happen, we are stuck with the constant same old cycle of winners. Brazil, Germany, Italy if they were in the cup... Perhaps Argentina or Netherlands (if they were in the cup) would make it to the final.

Itd be memorable if the dark horses win. Colombia, Croatia, Portugal, Sweden.

The Netherlands have never won the world cup.

Brazil was present in all editions of the world cups. The only national team that got it.

We had new champions in the last decades, Foreign legion (France) 1998 and Spain in 2010.

Some predictions:

Croatia and Sweden to "drop the bomb".

Final: 2:1 Germany vs either France, Belgium, Brazil. Germany to score a boring late goal 85-90 minute (scorer: Muller, oder was .

Prediction for friday: Spain vs Portugal...Spain, 1:0.

Ronaldo to have an amazing world cup, top goalscorer and will cement his place as the greatest to ever play the ball. Neymar, Griezmann and Pogba will be huge dissappointment. Player of the tournament: Luka Modric, Croatia + Timo Werner, Germany. Messi will score a goal or 2.

England will fail as usually but this time it won't be their fault, expect lots of 'dirty games' by both other players and russia as organizers. Harry Kane to get injured (not too serious...).

Sell your house and use the money to bet now before it's too late! Lol jk but my predictions are 9/10 of the times correct.

I fail to see how Brazil is a favourite considering the disaster last time.


I'd bet on Netherlands or some African country, that would be nice


LOL @ Foreign Legion France


Also, curious to see how Russia will handle it.


Still much less boring than the champion's league
