World Cup 2018

Post by Marc Meakin » Mon Jun 11, 2018 8:57 am

This is the most open tournament in years.
I have probably been spinning this line for 20 years or more but I can't see a clear favourite.
On paper I would say France have the best squad.
Belgium are a team of individuals but maybe they might get lucky.
I think Spain are past their best, ditto Germany.
Brazil will want to wipe the memory of 2018 and Messi could finally do a Maradonna and win it almost single handedly.
As for England, if they can get to the quarters, who knows.....I'm kidding, they may struggle to make the second round.
I do hope VARS will be a success and the English fans behave thenselves

Well I know it's early days but I'm looking forward to maybe seeing Brazil play Germany in the round of 16 and England to play the winners 😁
