Wow think how small the nation is when 20% of the population is inside the Volgograd Arena (Iceland)! According to the commentator anyway. I think it's probably closer to 5-10%. Still impressive.

they almost always park the bus or play some ridiculous 6-3-1 formation. And then we usually concede a simple set piece goal.

Probably the most accurate thing I've read all day haha.

 

Also, it's 1-0 Nigeria. Argentina could still be in with a chance if it stays that way.

I dunno man, we play much better against good teams imo since our counter attack is probably our forte. We always struggle to break through the defence of smaller teams since they almost always park the bus or play some ridiculous 6-3-1 formation. And then we usually concede a simple set piece goal.

 

EDIT: Mind you, if we work on our finishing we can take on any team, especially given what we've seen so far in the tournament.

 

Yeh true, although I still think I'd want to avoid Brazil and Germany especially until as late as possible, the other big countries maybe less so

Well holy shit, Group D Match Day 3 will be so good. Great second half by the way, Nigeria deserved all 3 points and that penalty miss was woeful.

Surprised Nigeria beat Iceland. Didn't watch the match but I was sure Iceland had that one in the pocket beforehand.

Well, I was rooting for Iceland but actually I prefer that score. If Nigeria would lose the it had nothing to do against Argentina.

Now it's going to be a battle.

You can bet on Sunday my mates and I will be chanting V-A-R V-A-R V-A-R every time a decision goes against us 😂

 

Serbia should have had a penalty. WTF are those FOUR VAR refs doing?!?????!? Serbia have been really unlucky, ref had an appalling game imo; very inconsistent.

That one was even worse than the Kane incident. Absolutely ridiculous how Switzerland managed to get away with that one. 

 

I've now lost another point due to a last minute goal, this is getting ridiculous now. Calm finish by Shaqiri though. Made up for his brilliant effort that hit the woodwork mid way through the second half.

@ahmedelebiary You must be loving this game :awesome:

 

Belgium are looking very strong as a team right now, it's a little scary. Lukaku is definitely one of the best finishers around atm, always so composed and great technique. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets Golden Boot.

 

EDIT: This World Cup's already made history as the first one to have at least a goal scored in all of the first 27 fixtures so far.

Yup Belgium is the most convincing team so far i can see them easily beating England in round 3.. Tunisia is playing good but silly mistakes from their defence especially from their LB (Maaloul) who plays for my favorite local team (Al-Ahly Cairo), also two forced substitutions due to injury both in defence made things worse for them.

I half expected @bpmotard to have predicted that score 😂 The amount of chances Batshuayi had after coming on, he could have easily ended up Top Scorer of the tournament. I can't believe some of the chances he missed, literally harder to miss than score..

Every single time I'm about to get a prediction right, someone has to go and score in the last few minutes. Honestly, what a joke.
