    Hey all! Let's use this thread for everything World Cup (I did not see any other thread). Also, if people want to join a group with me and some of my friends, feel free to post your bracket here.

    France is so weird to me. In my mind, they are the most talented team in the tournament, but Deschamps has not been able to figure out a formation. If they choke - which is possible - it is between Spain, Germany, and Brazil. I also think Croatia and Belgium can play spoiler.

    That was my original, but I was too Euro heavy. I was keeping France, which knocked out Brazil and Uruguay. Although, had I known Spain was gonna do this, might've gone Argentina again.

    Yeah, it seems like a weird decision? I know Madrid just hired him, but still, it’s two days before the World Cup! That, in combination with a legitimate threat at forward, may doom Spain.

    If Portugal can win their group over Spain, that could set up Argentina-Portugal in the quarters

    I actually have Portugal missing out... It is unpopular, but, I think Morocco is really good. They attack and have a beautiful passing game. I think that group is going to be really competitive.

    Either way, we may not get it, but the match we deserve is Argentina vs. Portugal.

    More toxic twitter debates: LeBron/Jordan or Messi/Ronaldo?

    I'll just throw it out there, but to me, Jordan/LeBron is a closer debate. For my money Messi is the best to ever do it. I come from a soccer family (from eastern Europe after all) so I've seen my fair share of everyone, but dude is special.

    So, USA, Mexico and Canada will jointly host the 2026 World Cup (PLEASE GET A GAME AT FIRST ENERGY STADIUM...I WILL START SAVING NOW!).

    Does that mean all 3 countries get auto bids?

    Looking forward to seeing what the cast of misfits, knuckleheads, got in store for the greatest of all time this World Cup

    I feel a lot of open goals missed

    Can’t believe they let Higuans bitch as back

    Well, the field does expand, so I would assume so. And if that's the case, I would imagine that won't go over well. Canada is a miserable team, US may or may not be worth a spot and Mexico is almost always worth it. All those are taking away from another, more deserving South American team.
