Re: R16: Colombia v England

I've spent my whole lunch hour watching goal reaction videos. There's a quality one from the Guardian that had a fixed camera on the fans for the entire match including the whole penalty shoot out. You could see every ounce of pain, despair, joy and ecstasy on their faces. There's one particular ch...

Re: R16: Colombia v England

When it went to penalties I couldn't watch anymore suspecting the usual defeat but :o later to find out an actual penalty shoot out success! Still can't quite believe it.

Re: R16: Colombia v England

Fingers crossed but I'm not confident, too many favoured teams have left already, hope to be proved wrong obviously.

Re: World Cup 2018

Admittedly I only watched it on my phone in my folks' garden but if Spain were awful wtf were Russia? What could they realistically do though? Penalties were probably their only option with the squad they have. Spain should easily have beaten that Russian team but insisted on playing their dull bra...

Re: World Cup 2018

Whilst Spain were unconvincing that game was biased towards Russia. Their given penalty against Spain's ungiven penalty. If/when England play them l expect the same onesided decisions in Russia's favour. :x

Re: World Cup 2018

France are going to win this I feel, Argentina have failed to convince me at all this tournament.
The other game is less easy to call but I think Uruguay most likely.

Re: World Cup 2018

I actually think they are probably the most impressive (in a WC where no team has really wowed us). Not spectacular but go about their business solidly with quality players. Will be very hard to beat imo. can you think of a midfield partnership that you would rather swap into their team in place of...
