Anyone else excited about the World Cup? It's one of the highlights of every 4 years for me.
Who's everyone rooting for? I'm a big Germany fan and hoping for a repeat.
Also pretty excited to watch Morocco and Egypt, as well as to see who comes out of Group D.

Yes! I've been waiting so long for this.
I'm hoping Portugal will go far in this tournament.
But it's going to be a lot of fun, I am sure!

England
Due to recent Russian meddling in UK affairs and alleged attempted murder in England we are rather cross with them right now.

To show our displeasure we will be doing our level best not to score any goals in their tournament.

We have used bold tactics before. To ensure we were unbeaten in the first two world cups we simply did not enter under advice of the Foreign Office. (This bit is true)

While it is too bad that the United States didn't make the tournament, I was thrilled to see that the United States was awarded the 2026 World Cup in partnership with Canada and Mexico. Two of the stadiums are in my home state of Florida so I will attend as many of the games as possible.

I'm from Colombia so I hope we make it at least to the second round, but living in Argentina makes me cheer for them as well.

My only concern is to not forget so much about priorities this time, with each World Cup I leave most of my plans aside and then when the tournament is over I felt bad, anyone has been through something similar?

Regards,
JP.

Alright.

I never cared much about this, but since it gives the good ole feeling of "us against them" and Belgium is doing fine lately, I'll follow it too.

Second round shouldn't be a problem. The optimism is bold.

Due to recent Russian meddling in UK affairs and alleged attempted murder in England we are rather cross with them right now.

First you have to cross with Belgium, but no clue how this will end :smile:

Ireland
Ireland were beaten by Denmark at the final hurdle in qualification. However, I went out to Copenhagen for the game and watched the second leg in Dublin. I got to know some really cool Danish fans so I'll be routing for them to do well (Not much of a chance of winning).

I'll also be watching Egypt (Mo Salah fan as I'm a Liverpool supporter) but ultimately I think the Germans will win it again.

I am supoorting Germany in the Fifa World Cup 2018 Russia. I think Germany have to play strong in order to defend the title in this world cup. The world cup has started with the win of Russia and I enjoyed the opening ceremony as well. Do you people enjoyed?

Don't know how I missed this thread! My boys the Socceroos were never going to get past the group stage and soccers in uproar here after the way we played (which happens every World Cup).

Want to see England win, or would be happy for Lukaku to carry Belgium all the way too.

I'm concerned for London if England do win, would love to tie in a work trip to London to coincide with the final but there's little to no chance of that :party::beer:

Belgium is playing awesome, I am watching it now against Brazil and it is really to have a heart attack Lol

Awesome game!

It is. I didn't expect this either, lol. But the last two games were really nice to watch. Exciting and fair play. It's only the second time ever they got this far.

Hoping for a final Belgium - Croatia, but France is strong too.
