Diego gives VAR the finger and Groups E and F end times

So Group C fizzled out rather than reaching any climax and the qualifiers from Group D proved to be the two with the most quality in the final reckoning.

Argentina will have to up their playing level to progress much further; though round of 16 opponents, France, look bang average at present, too.


On to today’s fare……..

Group E looks fairly straightforward unless Serbia can pull off a shock. Neymar will use any means to annoy us with his theatrics. Leave it at home, mate; you’re a great footballer – that should be enough.

Granit and Shaqiri escaped bans for their soaring eagles celebrations, so if the Swiss qualify, Arsenal should have at least two representatives playing in the Round of 16.

Group F could see a three-way tie on 6 points if the Swedes can beat Mexico and the Jarmans overcome pointless South Korea.Β  Though Mexico should be too strong to let things slip.

    As we fast come to the conclusion of the group games there is a seismic change that we need to adjust to, from 3 games a day to days off between games. Its going to be hard.

  16. Big Raddy says:

  24. Eddie says:

    amazing πŸ™‚

  25. Big Raddy says:

    Mexico fans. Unusual to see people celebrating as they lose 3-0 to a very average team

  26. Eddie says:

    germany suffer the biggest national defeat since the battle of Stalingrad πŸ™‚ the whole world is laughing

  27. fred1266 says:

    Lol I enjoyed that lose couldn’t have Mexico going home now can we

  28. chas says:

    I asked the Polish girl in Bargain Booze if she’d seen that Germany were out, and she said that it mattered nothing as she was Polish.

    I said I thought the Poles didn’t much like the Germans.
    She looked a bit puzzled, as if Germany losing was irrelevant if Poland were already out.

    Obviously not a proper football supporter!

  29. chas says:

    You’re right up for the Concacaf teams aren’t you?
    Representing your bit of the world.
    Panama aside, of course!

    stupid cow, don’t talk to her anymore

    on the other hand my english friend was walking home in the City of London to a train station tonight and a complete stranger kissed him on both cheeks mumbling ‘Germans are out’ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ That’s the spirit

    I was gardening in Cuffey when a noise greater than the one from Mama Mia twats broke out. I didn’t know what happened until I heard neighbours shouting ‘korea scored!’ That’s the spirit

    The stupid polish cow is from the generation that don’t care. That is why poland are out because of people like her! No national pride

  33. chas says:

    I’m sure she realised it was partly her fault, that was why she was so pissed off.

    She’s scrubbed off my Christmas card list already.

  34. Eddie says:

    that’s the spirit πŸ™‚

    i am afraid all footy fans are a tad odd
