Wow! What a world cup, so many great matches.
And the first use of VAR, something that looks like (whether for the betterment or detriment of the game as a whole) is here to stay.
And the US (along with Canada (eighth of the matches) and Mexico (another eighth of the matches) are hosting in eight years, with 48 teams, sixteen groups of three with the top two progressing.
Some say a money grabbing move, others say bringing the beautiful game to a wider worldwide audience.
It's an interesting idea, although widening the recently somewhat closed gap between the the real teams and the rest (like the US and Germany )
From a totally biased pov, COME ON ENGLAND! This is going so well it's hard to believe. Sweden and then the winners of Croatia and Russia in the final.
I had money on an England Belgium final so that's looking good.
This is the best world cup in my lifetime so I'm curious, how's it being received (if at all) in the US? They're (mostly) hosting the one after next after all.
Apparently from what I've heard the US has come to their senses and realised what football is. Unlike the silly games that they play.
I'm just glad that justice has been done in this world cup. The way Tunisia (they got away with it but it didn't matter in the end), Panama and Colombia have "played' against England is nothing short of disgraceful.
They're obviously so terrified of our players (Harry Cane in particular) that they're willing to give away blatant penalties rather than play the game fairly. That's okay, we'll just play the game in right way knock you bitches out of the tournament.
