very obnoxious, but quite an effective put down tbf

I am not sure how much I will watch. The time zone difference will be brutal, plus no USA, Ghana, or even my third team the Dutch. Not sure who to root for. I guess Mexico.

Not sure if many England fans would want to risk it.

The only time i genuinely watch football is when the world cup is on. I didn't realise that Italy & the Netherlands didn't qualify. What's the designated pool of death for this tornument?

C'mon. This time zone is nowhere near as brutal as New Zealand Rugby World Cup or this run of 3 Olympics in a row in South Korea, Japan, and China.

There isn't one really.

Group A and H are competitive, Group B is tasty and Argentina's groups could produce a few shocks but very few of the top teams have been paired together this time.

True and at least there are no people around to ruin the game, like how the Irish guys would show up at practice and tell you the score of the game you DVR'd.

In my experience, unlike Europeans, Africans support each other. So, Nigeria?

It's a huge omission given the season he's just had, without Sane they don't really have the pacy get out that most had been expecting them to have with Werner up front.

It's a very brave call, and I hope they don't regret it.

Sane's had an outstanding season, and you simply can't look past his numbers.

it's true they're not looking great, but maybe world cup winning coach joachim low has some credit left in the bank

Looks about fair - maybe Portugal ahead of England due to winning Euro 16.

Spain and Brazil my standouts.

Think England will have a great tournament.

It means objectively England have got a better chance of winning the 2018 WC than Portugal. The bookies operate in cold hard statistics rather than nationalistic pride. Looks about right. But no team has ever won a WC in recent years that wasn't a favourite in recent years, you probably need to be in that top 4.

Eh, are the odds not based on betting patterns?

France, Brazil and Germany are the stand out teams for me.
England well, they will be typically England. Nuff said.

Will I set up that world cup flag avatar draw again like I did for the Euros two years ago? I see Bullet still has the Ukraine flag avatar.
