Neymar is a little treat twat. That's not news to anyone.

He's also clearly one of the best footballers on the planet. Pretending otherwise is absolutely daft.

The difference between the relish Ronaldo takes from being the guy for his national team and the sheer weight that looks to be on Messiís shoulders when playing for Argentina is what separates the two greats of the modern game. And I think the question of which one is the greatest is starting to answer itself.

Still not convinced by Brazil. The tournament is still wide open. Engerlund could bring it home.
Have that feeling myself so much so that I stuck a few quid on them. Although the small stake would never be enough to ease the pain of having to listen to them!

I can easily see them making the semis.

Youíve been watching a different tournament to me if you think England have much of a chance. Itís not rare for the good teams to start slowly in these competitions. The same five or six will still be in the QFs when all is said and done.

If rumours are to be believed an Sterling is dropped I think it's good news for England, shows that Southgate could see he was rubbish v Tunisia and also has the balls to drop him. I think things might be different for England this tournament, in previous years egos were all trying to be managed, they had a wealth of talent but managers invariably went for big name players played slightly out of position rather than play a lesser light in his strongest position.

Early days obviously but they've a decent chance of success, semis at least likely imo. Their Achilles heel is the defence, Walker, Stones & Maguire are all potential bombscares. Think they'll be a much better team without Sterling (or if he's played it should be as a winger).

Can't believe all this talk of football greats and none of you have mentioned Terry Phelan😎

Sterling is a good athlete but isnít a footballer. England are an average side who are well managed at the moment. They can bully weak teams with their athleticism, pace and baility to press but when they come up against any decent technical team theyíll be found out.

Sterling is pretty clearly a better footballer than the likes of Rashford or Vardy. Itís hard to stand out in such an average outfit as Englandís current team.

That was the best game of this World cup so far. Fitting that Shaqiri scored the winning goal as he was the best player on the pitch 2nd half.

Two ethnic Albanians with the goals and Xhaka with a double eagle celebration. His father was imprisoned for three years fire protesting against Milosevic.
