Hey guys, as we had the same thread four years ago, I thought it would be a good idea to have one for the 2018 WC as well ;)
What teams do you consider as favorites on the cup? Who will be the stars of the tournament?
Russia opened the tournament with a 5:0 against Saudi Arabia. Beautiful goals by Cheryshev, especially the second one ;)

Lucky Japan! I'm happy for them but I don't think they will reach the quarter finals.

Mbappé, what a level he has...already miles better than Henry at that age.

The worst team of the group goes to the knockout stage :roll:
Griezmann and Mbappé will rip them into pieces..


Told you ;) Btw, what a goal by Pavard 8-)
Edit: Where was the "best player in the world" against Uruguay? Great match by Uruguay!

I only hope that Lionel and Cristiano FINALLY have a decent perfomance in their probably last World Cup.

Favorite? None really, no one seriously gave a shit about Portugal in the last "big" tournament, and they went to win the EC

I'd stick with France.



The goats disappoint us again :lol:

I think that if brazil and belgica qualify and face, for me this match will decide the champion of the cup ...

I bet Spain will be the champion.
Although I would like Brazil won it.

Very harsh to say that Ronaldo “flopped” at this tournament, considering he single handedly destroyed Spain and was the only reason Portugal got out the group stages at all. There’s only so much one player can do when the rest of his team is so average. I’d rather praise Uruguay for keeping him quiet instead of criticising him when the only thing he could have done was dribble past like 8 players to score...

Cavani was simply incredible though, his energy and determination are fantastic! Lovely finish on the second goal too!

Yeah, maybe it was a bit harsh to say. However Ronaldo scored a hat-trick against Spain and in my opinion Spain is superior to Uruguay. Therefore I thought Ronaldo shouldn't have problems leading Portugal to win against Uruguay. I think now that if Croatia defeats Denmark (and that could happen), they might be World Cup surprising winner.

Uruguay can defeat Spain, they have a better goalkeeper (I did not believed that David De Gea became so fucking insecure lately and Muslera has been one of the best 2-3 keepers in this WC) a better defensive line (The Best defensive duo in the world, while Spain has the most offensive CB's in the world, thus leaving themselves quite vulnerable) and a better attacking force (The best "doble 9") on the planet (but then, France left Benzema out).

The only thing that Spain has, and is by far the best (in name at least) is the midfield, and is not like they have are bossing the games either.

So no, Spain is not superior to Uruguay in this world cup despite the several " world class" names that Spain has compared to the "Three Musketeers" Uruguay.

This was seen to come, time to start a new institutional and football process in AFA, I thought we could have gone a little further but it was found that certain decisions have been wrong from the tactical aspect to the choice of players.
I feel sad to see how the best player in history can not win a World Cup.

The only thing that leaves me happy is that neither Chile nor Germany are in the World Cup, one did not qualify and the other did not pass the group stage.

I will follow Colombia, hopefully Quinterito can pave the way for that national team.

Good victory of the rebel province, hopefully Cavani can play the next game.

The best in history :lol: :lol:
Pelé, Cruyff, Beckenbauer, di Stefano, Zidane, Puskas or Maradona were all better than him..

I understand thinking most of those players are better than Messi, but Zidane? I can’t see any argument that you could make that Zidane was better, Messi can do everything he could and more. How many players have scored 50 goals a season on top of being one of the best playmakers in the world? Not Zidane, that’s for sure...
