My country plays, but I don't have high hopes.
They have qualified for the finals on eight occasions, the last time for 2018. Their best result was third place in 1974 and 1982.
The usual favorites probably win anyway...

BTW: Russia won with SA 5:0 as expected. Pretty thrilling spectacle.

The England team visited an orphanage near their training ground in Russia. "It's so heartbreaking to see their poor little faces with no hope" said Vladimir, aged 6.

Had to steal that one!

I reckon realistically it will be the quarters for England and as always, they'll save their best performance to their last game, and go out in penalties.

Would love it if neither Brazil, Germany, Spain or France won, especially the first two.

Fully on the Iceland bandwagon here. Two years ago was lucky to see them beat England in person. I also got engaged there. Great country, friendly people, and who doesn't love the underdog?

My country (Wales) hasn’t qualified for the World Cup since 1958! I reckon Wales should have been in this one really, seeing that we did so well in the last Euro’s.

I can’t possibly support England (you can’t expect any Welsh person to support England in the Football or the Rugby). So, I think I’ll support those nice Icelandic players instead, thankyou very much.
