We seem to do this every 4 years, so....

 

 

 

Less than a week to go until the biggest sporting event of the year kicks off in Brazil !

 

 

Who are you cheering for ?

 

 

Will Lionel Messi win the Golden Boot ?

 

 

Who will win the tournament ?

 

 

Use this thread throughout the tournament for friendly banter (play nice..... :P)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*disclaimer: I am aware of the current social troubles in Brazil. This thread is in no way meant to take away from the struggles our Brazilian friends are having.

I am on the bus to my way back home and in 7 hours I am supposed to pack a little suitcase, create a team for McDonalds FIFA Fantasy Cup, sleep, join OZ league and go to the airport. Just need to choose the proper order :P

And yes... Brazil to win and Spain as second. Italy should be harmless and England is the best replacement to Qatar for WC 2022 :)

16th of June, six-oh-oh EST, door bell rings

And I say, go away if you wanna stay alive a bit longer

Ghana vs. USA is on with the show

Three

 

And in this case, "three" alludes to the number of goals that will be scored in the game, at least if my psychic powers are real (they are not) ;)

It's a pity FIFA will benefit more from this than Brazil actually will.

This for sure!

The legacy won't be big since many infrastructure changes are not completely done. Some of them were only promises.
