Did the Germans get a premonition about the final score?

when you pull a stunt like that you have to make bloody sure you win the game or else you look foolish.

The Iranian team pulled a similar stuff with the national anthem and don't look foolish  ::)

if they were more worried about football than politics they’d be some team

Merely reflecting the mood of the German population at home, massive boycotts and ill feeling about the World Cup in general.
Clowns. Same as Keane and the rest. If you care that much stay at home.

Yet they've still travelled in their thousands.

Still early days but Belgium won't stop many good teams with that defence.  Apparently De Bruyne got man of the match?  I thought he was brutal.

Spain were sensational but they were playing The Dog & Duck.

Will be interesting to see what Brazil have.

He more or less came out and said he shouldn’t have got it. France defence looked ropey against the Aussies at times as well. Looking forward to seeing Spain against a half decent team.

These are the best teams in the world, Costa Rica are 31st, so to use The Republic as a team ranked 49th for example, would Spain have knocked in 10 past the Irish team? Iran were 20th btw
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

Same, a chance for them to send Germany home on Sunday, not the best German side but I'm sure Spain and a few other teams would be glad to see them out of the competition early.

South Korea are playing well and missed a golden chance to go one up!

Probably not England though as they’re the only big team they’ve beaten in years!

The pattern so far seems to be the young super fit teams are running/pressing the older teams off the pitch.  Canada run Belgium off the park. Iran all over Argentina.  Etc.  the last 16 looks like it will have a few teams who we haven’t been paying attention to.

Uruguay (2010) and Belgium (2018) both got to the semi finals previously but haven't had many personnel changes

That’s the concern, which would make it easier for  England to  ‘slippy tit’ it into the final
Careful now

Rankings are flawed. Teams are rarely playing other teams from outside their own confederation. How can we accurately rank Iran when they've been mostly playing Lebanon, Syria, Bahrain, Cambodia? Not Iran's fault of course. But they would have little chance of qualifying from UEFA.
