Default World Cup 2018 Discussion

Soccer World Cup kicks off in 10 days. Thought I would open up a thread.

With the US team boycotting the tournament in Russia....

Who will you be rooting for? Teams, Players, storylines...

Are there and ‘taters’ of the World Cup you like to see loose?

I am really just getting more into soccer, so for no good reasons except I like the countries and need to pull for someone to make it interesting: France and Costa Rica.

Belgium definitely being overlooked. They could win it.

France is a dark horse.

I'm expecting Renaldo to have a great tournament for Portugal as he looks to boost his market value

The 'Taters' for me are Mexico. I hope they don't even make it out of group stage. I am more than likely going to be rooting for France. They have sooooo much young talent on that squad. If France do not win this whole thing I can see Didier Deschamps getting the boot and Zidane will get the job.

I'm on the Argentina bandwagon. It would be great to see Messi cap off his career as a World Cup winner.

I do like a lot of other teams too...

Belgium and France are fun to watch. I would also be cool to see the Three Lions make a run.

And yes I agree that Mexico is the Clemson of international soccer.

TV numbers were going to be down even if the USMNT had made it because of the time difference between Russia and the US. All matches will start between 8am and 2pm eastern.

At least it isn't on ESPN :)

I'm pulling for Switzerland due to family ties. But I realize they are a long shot to do much.



I always enjoy watching the South American teams as they seem more creative in their play.

I'm just pulling for some highly entertaining games and the Mexicans to get their asses handed to them because as stated above their national team is the equivalent of Clemson.

Someone fill me in on some players. My kid, of course, loves Messi and he is a Liverpool fan and likes Mo Salah. Got those. Just read an article about Pogba. Who else are the names to watch for other than the obvious superstars? Reading on France's team saw something about Mbappe.

I'm going France since no US, I really enjoy their style of play. Griezmann is one of my favorite players and I've always enjoyed watching Pogba as well.

I'm headed to Germany on Tuesday. I will be there for Germany v. Mexico on Sunday. Going to a huge watching party, 100K+ at the fairgrounds. There will be beer, beer, frauleines and more beer. Really excited and I think D-land will drill Mexico. Should be fun!

I will be pulling for Colombia and whoever is playing against Mexico. My father is from Colombia so its a given to pull for them. Since the U.S. team wet the bed this time, I can throw all my support behind Los Cafeteros. They've got a decent squad with some star power like Falcao, Rodriguez, and Cuadrado.
