This group could go anywhere! Probably one of the hardest to predict.
Apparently Russia have brought out a retired 39yo to bolster their squad ! ?
It's hard to see the host nation progressing beyond the group stage.
Saudi A. I can't see them doing much against any side tbf, They'll not half be feeling the 'cold' of the Russian summer,
Tidy start for the hosts,
Playing reasonably well, Could have had 3 at half time with a cooler finish.
lets see if the Saudi's can make a game of it 2nd half, poor up to now.
So much for Russia having low confidence,
What a start,
Goals goals goals,
Saudi Arabia, pure garbage! The Russians not much better. Good to see goals though.
Watching Egypt v Uruguay, fooking Sunday league football, garbage! All the world over, sheite football, peace around in midfield play it backwards, these are supposed to be some of the best footballers in the world!
Forgot about the sewer rat, despise him too!
That comment might come back to ....................
Soz, Pal, best I could come up with.
The whole concept is Bull dust.
This progression towards a 48 team comp in 2026 too is a backwards step.
The best format was when it was just the four groups of 4, 16 teams in all. a three week comp, the best teams reasonably competitive, (There always was one or two a cut above the rest at any given time)
Now they just include teams to make up ever more group stages, usually most of which are a free ride 'through' for the more fancied teams.
It's no mistake only 8 nations have ever won the Trophy in the history of the comp. And there will be no new team added to that list any time soon.
World Cup on it's head,
Перейти в Россию
That'll do. Fantastic
Come on Uruguay,
Beat the Saudi's and my preferences come good in this group.
Uruguay 1-0 winners,(v Saudi Arabia)
That's Russia through to the play-off's.
They just might top the group. No one gave them a chance to start with. Maybe the 'expert pundits' should be sent home too
Russia & Uruguay through before a ball is kicked.
Similar situation to England & Belgium. Who wants it most.
I'd say Uruguay will just edge it with a win.
Egypt to send the Arabs home with no points.
One right One wrong
Although I thought Russia would have done better & made more of a game of it.
Don’t think Russia will progress much further Darn.
I think they've done as much as they can (we'll see)
But they have at least silenced the so called expert pundits who had them darn for 'fodder' & the 1st team eliminated by their reckoning.
Home support, Raised confidence, you never know.
All up. there are some very poor performances by so called better nations on going. There could be, as you said, A surprise outside winner this year.
Phenomenal result for Russia, shame the game was garbage! Russia played for penalties, Spain played for the fun of it.
I can see the tumbleweed blowing through!
