    Default World Cup 2018

    Is this the best world cup for a long time? No nil-nil draws is always a plus in anyone's language.

    Seems to be a positive side effect of VAR that you've got to commit to attack a bit more because you've always got the risk of giving a penalty away for an innocuous tug at that other end of the pitch. There must have been more pens already than in most World Cups and we're only half way through

    Best game of the World Cup so far was that, France v Argentina. Hope there are more great games like that one to come.

    Sports Direct had t-shirts on sale with 'Auf Wiedersehen' on the German tricolour when I went Saturday.

    England on the whole did better than most expected, especially when you consider what happened to Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Portugal, etc. We salute you!

    I don’t know much about football but it looked like that final pass always let them down. Created plenty chances but couldn’t finish them. Man on man it looked like Croatia ran rings around them in the second half.

    Did much better than expected with a squad devoid of any world-class talent. Southgate came out of it with a lot of credit. In previous tournaments we'd have gone out vs Colombia, who were also a better side than us

    Football world Cup in 2018, is not predictable, I was rooting for England, but she lost. Who do you think will be the champion? You can see the results and statistics of the matches
