Well, La France saw off the Uruguayans without really breaking sweat. The second goal reminded me of Xhaka’s versus Liverpool.
The Flemish giants (did you notice that De Bruyne and Hazard were the only ones who looked under 6 foot?) beat Brazil and finally ended Neymar’s pathetic play acting. Good riddance.
Today has a different flavour altogether. The Little Englanders in Cuffley will be revving up listening to their Abba collections from an early hour and should be nicely pickled by 3pm.
This is the time for Gareth’s waistcoat army to rise up and quell the noise from the Swedish hordes. Can we be better organised than the Swedes? Score more from free kicks and corners? Will VAR and Harry’s pens play a part? Should be fun finding out.
Russia v Croatia could go either way, too. Home advantage could be decisive again or we could see the Modric/Rakitic show top the ratings. What do you think?
