    I'm Chris.

    Default World Cup Russia 2018

    Post your thoughts here then.
    I think Germany will go all the way as usual, I also think Brazil are looking like a much better team it could be they make the final against Germany and maybe a chance for redemption for what happened on July 8th 2014.

    Belgium should do better this time with the team they have, but I don't know, Uruguay, Portugal will be hard to beat

    France are in with a shout, Spain despite the managerial problem will still perform, surprises? Sweden, Denmark or Iceland to get far?

    I seem to recall that the continent that the tournament is played in favours its own.

    Spain are still in it. The squad will rally and Hierro has been part of the set-up as well as having a CV that England would sell the crown jewels for.

    I'm just glad that the hype around England has died down. It made me bored with international football.

    Historically, Germany don't perform as well on Russian soil as they do elsewhere!

    Well yes, the last time didn't work out well, the supporters have been assured of special treatment, whatever that means.

    Brian, I've never done anything original in my life so why start now?

    Who do you fancy then? Or is it a secret.

    Glad you've started this thread, Chris. I'll comment more later. Just getting ready to watch the opening match with Russia, bottle of chilled Baltika in hand:



    Russian beer is rather good!!

    Let's hope it's a good match - I have my reservations.....

    Sorry Chris I meant my fancy was for Brazil and its me thats not very original !. Badly worded I m afraid.
    Nice performance from the hosts today against admittedly poor opposition.
