    Also the Sweeden vs South Korea game was interesting, congrats to Sweeden, they played well.

      Theirs was absolutely a pen. Both of ours were stonewall too, just missed/ignored.

      Group H will next be starting their campaign today, with Colombia vs Japan and Poland vs Senegal. Group A also start their second round, with Russia going against Egypt.

      As much as I want to support the Blue Samurai and their culture, I feel Colombia are probably going to get it. They didn't make the 2014 quarter-finals for nothing!

      I didn't watch England and Tunisia, but well done to England!

      I'm late to the conversation. It is definitely worth waking up early to watch the world cup.

      I am rooting for my native Mexico. I love the team they have, especially my boys Guillermo "Memo" Ochoa, Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, and Andres Guardado. I'm also happy that our first timer Hirving aka "Chucky" Lozano scored against the reigning champions Germany, in which Mexico has made significant history by beating a world champion!

      However...the coach. Who the hell hired that guy?

      As for the others, I got Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Luis Suarez, and Lionel Messi on my muklist, because they are just awful. Neymar needs to actually play and not create a ton of intentional fouls, and Messi needs to retire already. This is not the world cup for him anymore.

      I'm actually looking forward to Russia playing again. I hope Mo Salah of Egypt is recovered by then, Egypt could really use him now!

      That is all.

      Anywho, my home country is so muk at actual football that we made up our own football, so I don't feel obligated to be patriotic! So, we're rooting for Iceland because Iceland, Croatia because they have the coolest kit in the tournament and I will fight you on this, and Switzerland because all the Swiss people I met on my trip there in March were super nice. And also England.

      also going to be up early tomorrow hopefully to cheer on Samurai Blue.

        I do believe Iceland will be a team to watch. Besides, that clapping chant is something epic.

          Croatia usually have better kits than this, the squares are too big. Has to be Nigeria this summer.

          Watching Colombia vs Japan right now, and it's going the total opposite of what I expected, with the Blue Samurai having a 2-1 lead.

          Might plan to see Poland vs Senegal after this, especially with how tough Senegal were during their qualification stages.

            I don't get the love for Nigeria's Home Kit. It looks far too busy. Just because it's different doesn't make it good.

            The Away Kit in all dark green does look very nice though and may be the best looking kit in the tournament.

            I've only watched three games in the tournament. England's win, Iran's win and Nigeria's loss.

              Busy is good, then again I do love 90s kits.

              A good one from my club.

              Japan 2, Colombia 1

              That was an awful showing from Japan though, considering they were a man up the entire game.

                I thought they were pretty good in the second half.

                I think Japan would still do it brilliantly, even though their performances were kinda sloppy on the first half, besides of that stunning penalty very early in the game. Now on to Poland vs Senegal!

                Okay Senegal, that's a pretty badass kit right there.

                Red card for Colombia's Carlos Sanchez earlier today became the quickest red card given in world cup history. That shot my hopes because I actually wanted Colombia to win. ;; GG to Japan although I did not like how they played today.

                Poland vs. Senegal was amazing. Senegal has an amazing team, right at the same level as Iceland. I think they are one team to watch.

                Poland, however...http://digg.com/video/senegal-second-goal-poland-mistake

                  This was a nice one, Cheryshev! Russia leads with 2:0 now

                  Edit: I mean 3:0. Well done!

                  The match is over now, the counter reads 3:1. It was a wonderful game!

                  Senegal did really well in qualifying, and that strength showed in their win against the Polish. And yeah, I do understand your point that the red card may have been what cost the Colombians.

                  Also, with Russia defeating Egypt 3-1, that means Egypt are all but eliminated in the group stage. Shame because I felt they had potential, but Russia is doing much better than I thought they would. Home ground advantage I guess?

                  So now I watched Denmark vs Australia, and it seems that Socceroos gained a tie against Denmark 1-1 (at the time I'm writing this) thanks to the penalty awarded by VAR! I hope Aussies can score some more :smile:

                  Since this will be a crucial match, I think it's definitely going to be interesting. Hopefully my home nation can really give the Danish a challenge, if they were able to fight well against France.

                  Good job on Jedinak scoring that penalty. Shows just how much he knew this match was crunch time.

                    I don't know how we are the best SA team currently... but it feels wonderful.

                    Croatia defeating Argentina... the upsets keep coming!

                    But as for how my home nation now fares, we need to get a win against Peru in the final game (then again, they're pretty much out of contention) and also ensure that France defeats Denmark.

                    I was sceptical when the groups were first drawn, but I feel Australia got a better draw this time compared to the last WC. Should we get second place over the Danish, a possible encounter with Croatia (a team we faced in the group stage in 2006) could be looming if they continue their good run.

                    Hopefully Brazil can continue South America's hopes.

                      Currently watching Nigeria vs. Iceland. Nigeria just scored a goal a while back which puts Iceland on the bubble and gives Argentina another advantage of advancing.

                      I'm hoping Iceland would pull off a spectacular performance just like their first game. I'm keeping my hopes up! They have a great team.

                      And it was the Nigerians who pulled off the win... Iceland are now at huge risk of being eliminated, especially since their last group match is against an in-form Croatian side.

                      And as for Group E, the Swiss managed a come-from-behind win against Serbia, while Brazil ended Costa Rica's WC hopes.
