Back to lay is Denmark at over 100-1.

Think they will get out of the group and could surprise someone in the next round.

Panama, just for being in the tournament must have a chance; but I seriously doubt they will win.

England have the best chance in ages. A group with a novice team in it and a tournament with no Holland or Italy. Two big teams not making it and Argentina sailed close to missing out, so how confident would they be?

Spain getting rid of Lopategui at the eleventh hour, after his confirmation as Real Madrid manager and bringing in a swift replacement, Could that affect team unity and play in to other teams hands.

Still a solid lineup of teams in the tournament, but without the two aforementioned big teams, possibly the least skillful collection of talent in a World Cup for many a year.

Pretty much all the top 20 FIFA ranked teams in the competition, of which England surely is one, muight think it's their best chance to win a big tournament in years, regardless of how many they have or haven't won in the past.

As Tranmere69 says who cares ,used to enjoy the World Cup and the FA cup but now in both cases just don’t care I think it’s due to the antics of these spoilt ,overpaid prima donnas I seen a car yesterday with the England flag on rear doors ,and thought “poor deluded sod”.but if asked I think Belgium might win it ,.but don’t discount Russia ,if Putin wants to win it Who knows .i would wear asbestos gloves when opening doors ☠️

Love the world cup.

The kits, the stadiums the fans. Minnows facing off against the imperialists of the game, that random player who lights the tournament up and the stately pace of international tournament football. Players kissing the badge and meaning it.

Bring it on

Two goal scorers and a lively midfield, should avoid Germany and Brazil if they win their group and they should be up against Portugal as a way into the last 8.

Worse outside bets in there.

France or Germany for me.. France have some good exciting players and if they gel I think they can match anyone. Problem with France in these major tournaments is that there is never any in-between with them. They either fail spectacularly with lots of internal football politics bollox and big bust ups and fall outs within their squad/camp OR they do very well and go far. I think they can win it this year...Never write the Germans off though, preparation for these big tournaments is very important and the Germans are always prepared well..Teamwork is their main strong point and it always has been, they also have a manager who understands the world cup, they never give up and as they often do, they don't pick their best players, THEY pick their best team, and this has been proven in this tournament with Joachim Low leaving out Man Citys Leroy Sane from his squad. you never get brilliant German sides but you always get typical German sides and typical German sides win things...

hi Tranmere fan, have u seen this stadium at the Egypt v Uruguay game? its a bit mad eh! one of the stands that is high up behind the goal is a long way back and is actually outside the perimeter of the stadium, its only a temporary stand coz they had to construct it to take the capacity up to 35,000 seats which is a FIFA requirement.

I reckon either Greenland, Zambia, Gotland, Jersey or the Isle Of Man will win the next Island Cup Of Nations.

I don't really follow it and I don't think it gets any TV coverage, as it's a competition for mostly non FIFA registered teams, but as a wild stab I'd go for those 5.

I suspect Anglesey or the Asland Islands won't win it.

Although if it was to get TV coverage I'd hazard a guess and says BT sport would buy the rights for £50,000.

Fully expecting England to huff n puff and make heavy work of qualifying from a group that many would say should be relatively easy to progress from. No matter how weak Englands group opponents are it is still a group of death for England, that's how bad we are at major tournaments. I haven't watched them for 2 years now, not since the Iceland shambles at the 2016 Euros. I have refused to watch them. The Tunisia game will be at 2am here in HK and a big group of mates will be out in a 24 hour bar watching the game so I will probably join up with them to see the match, but I am not expecting anything great from England and of course there is always a chance we won't get beyond the group stage... Was impressed with Peru yesterday and thought they were really unlucky against Denmark.

Mexico 1 Germany 0 at half time, the Mexicans are playing without any fear and look real quick on the counter attack and they've been hitting the Germans on the break a few times in this first half, the Germans looking a little rattled here but they are not panicking just yet. Mexico have been great going forward. The Germans don't know what is hitting them at times, if Mexico can play like this then they will cause a lot of problems for many teams and could go far in this tournament.

for the opening 20 mins england played football like ive never seen before, they sliced tunisia apart and created many chances with some great interchanges n passing and they attacked at will and they could n should have been about 3 up. it actually looked like a real statement of intent that england could take this tournament on ,but it was short lived when on the 30 min mark tunisia were awarded n scored from the spot from an absolute diabolical decision from the ref. and from then on it was the same old england. no imagination whatsoever from our midfield. a real lack of a player who could get hold of the ball and do something with it. as for the england captain harry kane, i never heard his name mentioned once in that entire 2nd half until he popped up with that last gasp winner. from what ive seen of the tournament so far, there are many big nations that have underperformed so far in their opening games but they would still beat england. if we can play like we did in that opening 15/ 20 mins then we have a chance. but for the remaining 60/70 mins not a cat in hells chance.

I can't think of one positive thing he did (or does really). He runs into blind alleys like a headless chicken, the ball bounces off him at such an appalling rate I struggle to work out how he ever got scouted, he can't pass to a team mate and finishes about one chance in 6. Rashford contributed more in his first 5 minutes than Sterling did in his entire 65. And it's not like it's a new phenomenon either!

Reminds me of Cook in that regard, 2 real poachers goals and if not for him popping up there then could've been a different outcome.

We've seen some other nations have worse games and it's only the first game so can't imagine anyone will be at full throttle just yet. I'm not saying they can win the thing but like you've said, if they play like the first 20mins in a big game then they could do some damage to a team caught off guard.

Panama may just sit back and counter so chances need to be took early on.

He's certainly not immense.

Throughout the season with City he's got into the right positions with a host of decent playmakers who will find him anywhere in the final third. Something England don't have in extreme quantities.

I will say that his footwork is extremely good but agree with others when they say that he finds himself drifting out into channels that just kill any attack.

Odd thing for me is that a lot of people say he's our paciest player, i'd disagree with that as he just looks like he's moving fast in the same way Larnell Cole does because his feet move 3 times as fast as anyone else's. There were at least 4 times he and a 6 foot 2+ defender were chasing after the ball and he was left in the dust.

Well the opta stats that aren't biased by how quickly you perceive his little legs moving have him as being faster than mane and Salah - the 15th fastest in auguably the league where pace has the highest premium.

And his finishing is by far the weakest part of his game, and yet he had 20 odd goals last year and I think by age he is comparable with Messi and Ronaldo.

Yes he is in a boss team. But the hardest part of playing in a side like city's is being good enough to get a regular start in the first place.

And the reason for that is coaches like guardiola have a deeper appreciation of the game than relying on how fast his little legs appear to be whirring. lol

The only appreciation Guardiola has is for how open and big the owner's wallet is...

I appreciate your following for Opta stats but their findings are based on a very small percentage of a players game and if we want to use them then Koscielny is faster than all 3 (Salah, Mane & Sterling) so it shows that stats and the findings are sometimes misleading.

He probably is faster than this two.

Of course all objective data and the subjective concensus of most informed people could be wrong and your theory about his little legs being the sporting equivalent of an Escher illusion correct, but I known where id place my bets.

Any way, he's a boss and if you don't agree you don't know your Morrisons from your Morrisseys when it comes to football.

So ner!

don't really care what sterling does in a man city shirt, am only interested in what he can bring to the England team and imo he doesnt bring much..thought england were immense in that opening 15/20 mins, they ran the Tunisians ragged and they created so many chances and could have been 3 or 4 up with the game put to bed if not for poor finishing. but a game of football isnt just about the opening 20 mins. englands 2nd half performance was like how they normally play.

He probably is faster than this two.
Of course all objective data and the subjective concensus of most informed people could be wrong and your theory about his little legs being the sporting equivalent of an Escher illusion correct, but I known where id place my bets.

Any way, he's a boss and if you don't agree you don't know your Morrisons from your Morrisseys when it comes to football.

So ner!

I like how you've imagined me to have come up with a theory just because you're firmly sat on his shaft. My quote was his feet move faster than others so please stick to the facts...

I've never said he isn't a good player either so you keep up with the friend making on here pal. smiling smiley

Last thing i post on Sterling, if he was so 'boss', then he would've lasted the full 90 and bagged a brace. Which coincidentally is his total amount of goals in an England shirt. Speaks for itself really as he is played as a ST...

Sterling seems to consistently get tangled in his own legs in an England shirt

No idea who Mr green is or why (s)he positions itself as the irritant that produses no pearls but (s)he overlooks the truism of lies, damned lies and opta.
Second whatever sterling's opta score as a footballer he suffers from the fairly fundamental flaw that he can't kick a football properly. Whatever his leg movements or pace just watch what happens when he tries to shoot or cross. And there's his chronic medical diving condition. Finally look how England improved when southgate had his epiphany and took sterling off.

Eh lads. Dont get irritated by my rather charming way of getting my point across and take things personally. There's room for all sorts of opinions here.

You lot think raheem has little legs and can't kick a football, I think he's boss.

Now I happen to be clearly right and you boys laughably wrong on this gravely important topic, but for the love of the children reading, don't take it to heart.

lol.

anyone else fed up with the tragedy narrative surrounding messi?

that he's been let down by inferior team mates and that is somehow deeply upsetting that he has never managed to make an impact on a world cup. its almost as if he didn't miss a penalty and go missing for the first two games.

+1 Even with a decent in form Messi they are not a particularly good side and they really struggled to qualify for the tournamemt.

As the old footy saying goes ' one man doesnt make a team.' Some say that Maradona single handedly won the World Cup in 1986 , have to admit that the cheating , handballing, drug addicted, cocaine addled, stomach stapled, journalist shooting, FIFA banned Argie @#$%& was brilliant in that tournament and it was a very average Argentinian side, but Maradona needed those average teammates around him. Even to this day, Peter Shilton has refused to shake hands with Maradona..They won the world cup in 1986 with the 'hand of god' and without doubt their 1978 World cup win was a massive fix, probably the biggest in world cup history, with those tyrannical Argentinian generals having a massive say n impact on events and results. Cheating Argie @#$%&.

Maradona was for a time a FIFA ambassador, so appearing to be a lap dog for a corrupt official like Blatter.

A match made in dystopia really.



Then I ate his Liver.......... with some baked beans and a can of coke.

Don’t agree with Mrgreen .sterling is the weak Link his final ball is poor ,you don’t have to tackle him ,he trips over his own feet ,he runs like a girl ,,he might have pace but you have to know what to do with the ball when you catch up to it .Rashford for me every time .Loftus cheek looks handy as well .sterling very poor in an England shirt ,

should be an interesting game v belguim

could be the case that both teams would really prefer to lose and finish second.

japan / senegal / uruguay / mexico / portugal in one half

france / germany / brazil / spain / in the other.

might not pan out that way, but its possible that winning our final game would be a sub optimal strategy

I can see the Belgium game ending in a draw and both sides go for yellow cards to decide who finishes 2nd .Martinez has already said that he would rather finish 2nd as they are based in Moscow and all next round games are based in or around Moscow .

Argentina players have took over the dressing room and made five changes. A former player was quoted as saying they will pick the team and the manager is welcome to sit on the bench if he wants to
They are desperate to shift the blame from themselves and onto their manager. The goalkeeper gets the boot straight off.

Also they have named the oldest team to have represented Argentina at a world cup. Clearly the old guard have been hard done by by keepers, managers and young upstarts. Their inertia and inabliltiy to make a mark on a game had nothing to do with it.

Super eagles all the way for me

Its the second touch that makes the difference between him and the rest. It's in the half beat of the first and the finish. So many of his touches are in the off beat : on the 'ands' of the bar instead of the 1, 2, etc.

Watch him dribble you can see it.

He's playing jazz whilst the rest are clapping to happy hardcore.

Joy to watch

lol hehehe,, fair play to Nigeria in this second half, argentina dominated large parts of that opening 45 mins and they were getting the ball forward quickly and pressing a lot more and the Nigerians were struggling to cope, but kudos to the nigerians for the way they have come out after half time.

If he ever wants to share a bottle of red and some grilled Argentinian beef he's welcome in this part of birkenhead

Love how the word possessed is standing as a euphemism for off his cake on social media.
