What a joke.

Croatia, Belgium, France, Brazil. Only they deserve it.

Well, someone has to win it all, right?

Who knows? It may just be one of these. We'll see...

England deserve it too. They haven't played to their potential yet, barring a few outstanding performances, but you have to remember they're a relatively young team who have had to break the spell of England not winning a knockout round for twelve years, and never winning on penalties in a World Cup (they beat Spain in the Euro in 1996). They were all over Colombia for the first thirty minutes or so but just couldn't get through on goal. Also, Colombia should have been down to ten men after that despicable head-butt on Henderson, but the referee bottled it and gave a yellow instead. And you can't deny England's sportsmanship has been exemplary - no playing acting, diving or getting wound up by the opposition.

They'll have a hard time against their bogeyman team, Sweden, but with a little more composure in the final third, I believe they could do it!

Speaking of play acting and diving, let's hope Brazil and Neymar continue to have great success.
At least for these bar patrons....

Actually, I just thought up an even better one. The Mark Geiger drinking game.
Every time he pulls out a yellow card, take a drink.

Harry Kane was more low key today....doesn’t matter....England wins again!

I was wondering ....the World Cup is a month long....are the “fans” attending
the games in Russia the the same fans for entire month?...like they take a month off work,
hotels and eating restaurants for a month could get expensive....

Entering this World Cup, I started by supporting the Russian and Asian squads, with Colombia, Iceland, Mexico, and France (the last one being my bandwagon favorites team of choice)! Now I am left with Russia and France!
