It was benign so once the facial palsy settles I’ll be back to normal 👍🏻

I’m up £500+ From the euros already stuck 50 quid on the Dutch seconds before they scored the winner, had £150 on Belgium last night at evens an absolute steal, took Finland at 9/1 aswell. 

Given she doesn't exist i'd say your good to watch.

Usually 12 sides, 3 groups of 4, Australia and Qatar pulled out. Couldn't get suitable replacements.

Personally I would have went with top 2 advance to the SFs but they want more matches..

1-0

They should join up with the the North America association tbh.

Yeah an “America’s Cup” makes so much more sense, add the Caribbean as well. 8 South American with US, Mexico, Canada and Jamaica for example would be a much better tournament.

I was reading about it there CONMEBOL (South America) only has ten member nations, CONCACAF (north & Central America and carribean) has 41 member nations.  Join up for the tournaments and have a similar tournament to the Euros. 
 

it’s the same with the Oceania, it only has 11 nations, they should join up with Asia. 
 

Just makes more sense to me.

This.

Copa-America including Australia and Qatar is fucking daft :lol:

Since 90s they started inviting the likes of Mexico, USA, Costa Rica etc 

MLS emergence meant USA started decling their invitation and its a Gold cup year so couldnt invite any of them this year anyway. 

Japan played in a couple.

Copa America was quality with USA, Costa Rica or Mexico as the two invited teams imo

Yeah no idea why they don’t change it. Heard on talk sport a couple of weeks back that they’re are genuine moves to make the World Cup every 2 years, ridiculous in my opinion.

Already expanding the format of the WC which devalues it, having it every 2 years would do even more damage.

I’m actually just reading about this now aswell, Brazil aren’t even the second most successful country in this tournament never mind first.  That’s mad man. 🤣

Uruguay have won it 15 times, Argentina 14 and Brazil 9.

Uruguay were very strong in the 1910-50s.

Double World cup winners.

Oceania were sort of with Asia for a while for World Cup quals until 1986.

It suits nations like New Zealand, Tahiti and New Caledonia to stay with Oceania now that Australia play in Asia as Oceania gets a spot at world youth tournaments and more of a chance of playing at the World Cup. Those teams would have no real chance these days qualifying for the World Cup if they played in Asia. Out of those teams only New Zealand would have a realistic chance of qualifying for the Asian Cup.
