I'm looking forward to Spain v Portugal today- though it's on at 4am here.

 

Might have to avoid the score and watch when I get up at a proper time ?

Don't worry, we'll try not to post spoilers :)

Let's just hope Ronaldo remembers he is *not* the referee. It really annoys me when he starts throwing tantrums because he didn't get a free-kick for someone *daring* to breathe near him. 

He's a great player, but his arrogance is very off-putting.

Oh no, please discuss the games & results as they happen !

This should be like a U2 show live thread ?

I'm definitely catch today's match with Spain and Portugal. Did you catch the news Spain dropped on Cristian R. today? Daaamn! Spain is playing to win.

I can't live comment tho... Watching on the app in my phone while at work. ??

Spain v Portugal was amazing... best match of the tournament so far and a brilliant goal by Nacho. 

And Ronaldo just.... being Ronaldo. Clearly being fined 14m euro doesn't bother him in the slightest. It's probably pocket money to him.

Tomorrow's matches look like fun too - and I *love* that Twitter now has a #Vikingclap emoji for Iceland :lol:

It was a great game! Renaldo has skills!

Now I want to catch Argentina tomorrow but I'm not feeling that 6am pst start time... It's my day off.  I can do 7am... maybe ?

My Socceroos are in action soon against France. I'm suddenly very nervous.

We are either going to get smashed.

Or maybe a draw if lucky.

Dare I dream of an upset win ?

Of course upsets can happen - be positive :)

I would love to see Australia do well in football. After all, they've already conquered most other sports!

Ah, the Socceroos did pretty well: there wasn’t much to that first penalty kick to France. Shame the Aussies couldn’t hold on for a draw... ? ABut congratulations to France ??!

Shame U2 have forgotten where Australia is!!!! ?

Will the video assistant referee (V.A.R) be a disaster ? 

 

Well that came back to bite me on the backside didn't it.

Not a fan of it (go google Newcastle Jets, grand final VAR)..

Thought we were good enough to get a point.

 

A bit deflated really.

I still don't think that was a penalty for France. Australia should have had at least a draw.

I hear the vuvuzelas are back. I've not watched a game where they've been used...that I can tell.

The time difference is getting me. Not able to watch most of these. Sleep > soccer/football

Tuning in for Tunisia vs England
