Spain look weak so wouldn't be a big shock, Croatia will beat them in QF's if current form is to go by anything.

Best world cup in a long time. Really enjoying it. Only thing missing is the fighting in the stands we were promised. 

That ref in the POR/IRN game couldn't handle it, should never have been picked for a world cup. And that diddy Mark Lawro needs to remember its a penalty that was getting spoke about, not a goal scoring opportunity.

Maybe each team should get one VAR challenge per game,if they're successful they keep their challenge if not they lose it.

I think Tennis has a system like this.  The players themselves can challenge a decision at their discretion and the replay is then shown for all to see.  If each team had one VAR challenge per match it would limit the amount of calling for it and it's better each team decide when it should be used rather than the ref.  When Mitrovic was pulled down that was a good time to use VAR yet the Referee didn't.

Honestly think Uruguay would have been better off getting Spain. In terms of how both play Uruguay could catch them on the counter and defend when needed.

Its the VARs that decide when to use it with the help of replays. If between them and the ref on the pitch cant get the decisions correct then we're pretty much fucked.

I love var and agree players should be booked for signalling to use it or to card a player.

Haven’t England already won it?  I’m sure that’s what the TV coverage has suggested

England will be going into the knockout stages having played only one serious game. The game against panama was a training exercise and the game against Belgium will be a glorified friendly. That's no preparation for when it gets serious.

Some right greeting faced nuggets in here. The mix of alcohol with over expectations always results in England fans going a bit OTT. 

Let them enjoy it whilst it lasts. Wouldn't bother me if they win it. They are Britain's only representative.

The scenes when we win 55 will put anything they do into shadow. But as an ex pat working down here everyone seems happier and nicer whilst the good feeling of this World Cup continues.

Much rather put up with "It's coming home" than fucking flower of Scotland. It's a massive IF but had the tartan trannies qualified and won 6 -1 would they be happy to just sit at home quietly..??. It would be hijacked by wee Nick and made a public holiday. Then an independence vote would be forthcoming. 😌👎

France, Aussies, Argies and Croatia the day with Harry Kane to break both legs in training as a bonus.

Good to see Peru winning so far, they deserve at least something from this world cup. They've been far better than a lot of the teams here.

What was with the referee giving France a freekick before the break after Griezmann ran the whole length of the pitch and was taken out, only for the referee to blow for half time before they could take it? Ridiculous decision.
