Most people accept we're playing the best african side, so any win, 1-0 will do. Draws not the worst result but I'd rather a win 1-0. Anything more would be a brucey bonus.

England should be murdering Tunisia

They're a good outfit mate.

Had Spain under very severe pressure in their last friendly before the world cup. Held a full strength Portugal to a draw, beat Turkey in Turkey.

England shouldn't be expecting anything. A win will do. A good performance a bonus considering I've seen Spain and Peru play very well and not get maximum points, or any in the case of Peru.

Has there been any crowd trouble yet?
I would have thought the Russians would have been looking forward to battering English, Serbian and Polish fans.
The rest of the fans know how to behave themselves and have the craig.

Tunisia seems like the ideal England world cup opponent, in the sense that "ideal" = able to facilitate our usual shocking tournament performance.

Well organised, good team but not a "big" team meaning that England are supposed to win.

I'm picturing a 0-0, with Harry Kane blazing about 50 shots over the bar.

It also means England are in pretty serious danger of going home if we lose to Belgium.

I suppose my analysis of England's fortunes is very much more Guardian than Express.

As with Brexit, I don't really see patriotism and history as a likely predictor of future success.

Also I hear our excuse will be too many flies/midges infesting the area.

Anyone know when England's team is named?

Been a round for the underdogs this first round, with Mexico beating Germany, the Swiss drawing with Brazil, and Iceland drawing with the mighty Argentina.

Given this trend, England might be able to sneak a draw.

The Korean guy was fairly flapping about on the deck, but that actually did look quite sore, for once.

:lol:

Since typing that there have been a few tasty fouls from each team. This is great fun.

The slow-mo facial expression as they go down are just priceless, whether it's a genuine foul or not. :lol:

I’ve trimmed the algorithm that does 95% of my exact same posts and same lame ass jokes and insults

Eventually it will end up just being “your birds ming, you ain’t funny, fhhd, bangers, 8===> - - -“

TBF, the Netherlands in the final in 2010 was a showcase of kicking talent.

Don't care. It's all about the history and the fans. Teams like Switzerland are so boring and there's nothing about them. You get me bro?

A lot of the pre-tournament favourites have been less than convincing so far.

France, Brazil, Germany, Argentina haven't looked like world champions at all. This tournaments wide open.


The bigger teams prepared to be physically on top for the end of the comp while other teams are in top shape right now. I'm not surprised by the Iceland and Switzerland performances at all, they've shown their worth on the European scene quite a bit now. Similarly, Australia did an excellent job at signing a top coach who did them an awful lot of good. I'm more surprised by Mexico's performance.

Mertens first goal scorer. If I had known there was a guy called Mertens in there I would've chucked in an omen bet.

They've got the worst looking women in Europe. They're currently seeing Russian women every day. Suddenly winning the World Cup and returning home isn't such a life-affirming goal.

Shitting myself now.

Although rugby means more to me than football, the nerves always set in for tournament football.

Oh to over-achieve, and surprise people, for once.
