Default Soccer (football) World Cup 2018

Is anyone watching the world cup. Its being broadcast live from Russia.

England have just won their first game 2:1 against Tunisia so I am grinning like a fool.... Come on Boys done us proud.

Also I drew Mexico as my team in the sweepstake at work and they beat Germany (one of the favourites) last night. So come on Mexico!

Iím following it as I do every time! A bit of a football nut.

They wonít go deep but I support Serbia!!! Yesterday, they beat Costa Rica 1 - nil. My husband is supporting Russia but they wonít go deep either!

I was excited for MEX v GER since both squads are deep in talent. It was an exciting game and pleased with the result.

Best part of World Cup is going to our ethnic hang - outs, in our jerseys, and yelling at the television sets !

I'm following the best way I can while I'm not at work. I don't have Cable TV or anything, but I get the updates via YouTube and whatever I can. When I go back to work, I WILL have it on in my office.



I was excited for Mexico yesterday. I'm not really sure who I'm pulling for, but I LOVE soccer.

Its great to see people supporting their teams and to see the flags flying.

Both England and Mexico have a great chance of wining their groups.

I don't watch anymore - I used to be a huge fan when I was younger and would be cheering for Brazil...but now I'm just not interested anymore. I might have my TV on as a background noise during the games though because I think it reminds me of childhood and makes me feel cozy

I remember this match clearly! WC Final. 2010. South Africa. I have an aversion to the Dutch national squad [ some unnatural prejudice I cannot explain?!] so I was left with Spain. Watched at home in our dinky home in BiH during a hot day. Between yelling at the television and the heat, I maybe had 5 cool showers during the game.

My neighbors [bunch of working class guys] had bets on the game. [Such as every big tournament.] There was drunk fist fighting after.

Russia had a good game against Egypt this afternoon! I was so concerned over the return of Mo Salah but he didnít play as well as expected.

I am so sappy that I cried at the national anthem. It was in Saint Petersburg and the crowd was so loud. Cheryshev and Dzyuba are national heroes for the time being!

Serbia lost to Switzerland. Next match is against Brazil so Iím not too hopeful we will be in the Round of 16. Although Brazil hasnít been playing so well...

I ate a sympathy burek on the way home and my tummy is sick now!

Germany did well to just get through in the last seconds. A really good example of keep trying and donít give up.
Looking forward to the England game in 30 minutes.

My mother was Swedish so I shout for them as well as England and my sweepstake team are Mexico so I have 3 teams to cheer for.

Ohh heck Panama have scored but I guess we can let them have one.

My beloved Serbia has been eliminated. Oof, I cannot say that I did not expect this as I did. It is still sad after all.

Good luck to the neighbors in Croatia then!
