World Cup starts in a few days. It's gonna be great, but without Italy, The Netherlands, Chile or the U.S. it's gonna feel kind of empty.

I'm expecting France to bow out early. They were held to a 1-1 draw at OL to the USA. The US didn't even have a packed squad. They had a whole bunch of kids aged 18-23. Even Pulisic and Weah didn't play. They were about to lose before an Mbappe poach in the 82nd minute I believe.

Recent performances would put Argentina, Brazil, Germany and Belgium as favorites.

Despite the score line that opening game was super boring

England with a good win, Belgium with a rout, Brazil chokes along with Argentina and Germany.

Interesting start to the World Cup

We should have prizes for this but for right now who is the favorite to win?

Between Germany, Brazil, France and Belgium

As for performances, only Belgium and France have won - Belgium have won convincingly with France struggling for their win. Belgium looks bright, this year.

That Iran goal should've stood. Robbed.

Hoping Morocco can beat Spain and Iran beat Portugal to have Portugal and Iran go through.

Some surprises at this World Cup. But the big surprise is Russia, they won two consecutive games.

I hope Germany fall out. It will make it so much more fun to watch knowing a new champion is guaranteed, and then we can watch Belgium go berzerk on everyone else.

It might happen too because Mesut Ozil is injured, I believe.

Should've been 2-2, but the bogus non-penalty call made no sense. I thought VAR was supposed to stop this kind of crap?
