I watched a bit of Iran/Morocco (boring) and Spain/Portugal (exciting).
I am cheering for tiny Iceland who are in their first WC ever!
Watched all the highlights from today. I'll be watching more games as the cup progresses. This is my favorite sporting event of any sort. Don't have a favorite.
After England get knocked out of whatever major tournament, I typically jump on the Azzurri bandwagon. I don't know who my second favorites will be this year, with Italy gone in qualifying.
HUH! Bang! CLAP, HUH! Bang! Clap, Huh! BANG! CLAP, HUUUUUUH!
Of course. Good to see Iran topping a group for once, won't last though, Spain and Portugal will go through.
"Tiny" Iceland beat us in the Euros and I think they've got a better chance than us. Trying hard not to get suckered in this time, expectations are low, deservedly so. If we progress to the knock outs that will be a result. I'm not going to let myself get carried away only to be hugely disappointed.
That's the theory anyway.
Pretty nailbiting stuff. I think the Dutch look the better side, but still early days.
Do I feel a fool, I came in part way through thought ICE said HOL. Not really been paying too much attention to the other groups.
Well done Iceland.
The Dutch are on holidays
I know, I did wonder about that. In my defence I've just moved house and have a lot on.
Never been a fan of football so could not care less about any of it.
To which football are you referring? Futbol (soccer) or gridiron (American gridiron) football?
I am going to be in a bar in Mexico tomorrow morning to watch Mexico upset Germany..
Things like the F.A. Cup are what I call football but it does not really matter because I don't watch any of it. Never have done, the only sports I used to watch were World Cup Downhill Skiing & The B.T.C.C . I have not seen either in years.
That performance by Cristiano Ronaldo was incredible. The Portugal defense faltered and gave up a lead, and Ronaldo saw them through to a draw. It's a shame that he'll never win a World Cup.
It's amazing that he could even play considering his legal problems.
Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly agreed to accept a €18.8m (£16.4m) fine and a suspended jail term to settle tax evasion charges.
The Real Madrid and Portugal footballer, 33, was accused last year of defrauding tax authorities of €14.8m, charges he denies.
Ronaldo offered to pay €14m in June 2017 but the government rejected the offer, the El Mundo newspaper reported.
The news came before he scored a hat-trick against Spain in the World Cup.
he scored a hat-trick against Spain in the World Cup.
That was damned impressive.
It may have served to motivate that hat-trick.
watched the second half of ICE-ARG.
one of the commentators summed it up best --
"Iceland beats Argentina 1-1 ..."
I'm watching just now ... forget it.
