    Default World Cup 2018

    Pretty even with no obvious Group of Death. However, Mexico, Sweden, and South Korea probably got the worst of the Draw and landed Germany.

    Go Deutstchland! Repeat!!!

    Agreed that's a tough group. I have some Mexican friends who are already predicting 0 goals and last in the group

    England looks to have a pretty favorable group. Group D should be fun!

    My early 1-2 per group predictions with not much thought:

    Group A: Russia, Uruguay
    Group B: Spain, Portugal
    Group C: France/Denmark (but maybe Australia)
    Group D: Argentina, Iceland (really a toss-up for #2)
    Group E: Brazil, Switzerland
    Group F: Germany, South Korea
    Group G: Belgium, England (I would put England #1 but it'd be just like them to falter)
    Group H: Japan, Poland

    Well we got 2026.

    Looking forward to our group games in Seattle, Guadalajara, and Toronto, then playing Mexico in the knockout stage in Mexico City

    I told someone this morning it wouldn't surprise me at all if somehow Russia gets to the semis or final

    Seriously though Saudi Arabia was awful

    It was good to see a obvious dive get called out and reversal of a Penalty.

    However, the ref should have given Neymar a Yellow for the dive.

    Maybe late justice Neymar got a yellow a few minutes later.

    Brazil ended up scoring 2 goals to beat Costa Rica in ET.

    Wow Nigeria. 2nd is definitely up for grabs now, although Iceland has a pretty difficult route.
