    Not sure what either is about but 1-0 to Peru so far for me!

    Not long to go!!!

    Some surprising names getting cut out of the national squads as well. Leroy Sane especially!

    Is there any interest in a cash sweepstake for the World Cup? Or perhaps a FFL instead?

    I may advertise for a sweepstake tomorrow with a deadline of Wednesday 13th evening and the draw to be made in the AM of 14th. The day of the kick off!

    Would like to think we'd be able to get 16 at least so that we can have 2 teams each if we stump up a fiver each?

    I'll pay your entry fee mate if you like. If you win anything you'll give me 25% of the prize money. If you don't win anything than it's tough luck for me.

    Stoke have just signed Etebo so that'll be Nigeria that I'm following at the World Cup!

    Other Stokies there are Butland, Shaqiri, Ramadan, N'Diaye and Diouf - All of whom are rumoured to be moving on!

    Agree but depends at the state of Spain and Portugal. Morocco don't have the best players, but for the first time in years they have build a team with players who want to fight for eachother. I hope Portugal plays a weak tournament, because they were so lucky last EC. One of the most interesting matches I think when they play against Morocco.

    Group D also very interesting. Nigeria and even more Croatia could be good outsiders. Curious to see if Sweden still has his form. Don't expect much from Belgium and Poland. England and France can go either way; very surprising or very disappointing. If France can create a team they have the best team, but so far it seems Brazil might have the best chances yet.

    I rate Belgium and France as top candidates for the title. Followed by Germany, Spain, Brazil and Argentina.

    England will be shite like every tournament and Portugal will be out of luck this time with more and better competitors.

    Dark horses could be Senegal, Croatia and perhaps Morocco.

    Don't you think Belgium has the wrong manager? Leaving Nainggolan at home was a big mistake as respect and politeness are very important to the Belgian. It doesn't seem like Martinez understands the Belgian culture. Kompany is also injured, so Belgium is back to his old 'not convinced of own qualities'-level. They are to modest to believe they can win (while they can imo)

    I think Belgium has become much more 'professional' under Martinez. I think their polite nature is what held them back for putting down great performances. They have such great players, but it was never a team. Now I feel they are a team and Martinez gets them to perform.

    And about Nainggolan. I've always found him way overrated and he hasn't been special at all this season.

    Serbia are my dark horses! I think Spain or Germany to win, though. I also sincerely hope Portugal have an awful time ha!

    Some are backing Peru as dark horses, aren't they?

    I don't think Senegal will be. Nor will Iceland will be able to repeat their efforts from the Euros.

    Russia to make the knockout stages, perhaps?

    I think Argentina will go far, despite only just qualifying for the tournament in the first place.

    I think I had Germany, France, Brazil, and Spain as my final 4.... I did some "match predictor" online and came up with that

    Sadly, although I think Mexico will make it out of their group (as Group F 2nd place) they would wind up playing Group E winners who are most likely Brazil....

    Always a few surprises though.... but I think

    Group A - Uruguay and Egypt
    Group B - Spain and Portugal
    Group C - France and Peru
    Group D - Argentina and Croatia
    Group E - Brazil and Serbia
    Group F - Germany and Mexico
    Group G - Belgium and England
    Group H - Japan and Colombia

    Round of 16

    Portugal beats Uruguay
    France beats Croatia
    Brazil beats Mexico
    Belgium beats Colombia
    Spain beats Egypt
    Argentina beats Peru
    Germany beats Serbia
    England beats Japan

    Quarter Finals

    France beats Portugal
    Brazil beats Belgium
    Spain beats Argentina
    Germany beats England

    Semi Finals

    France beats Brazil
    Germany beat Spain

    Finals

    Germany beats France

    But I'm always wrong and I don't bet money on sports

    If Morocco win first game then BIG pressure on Portugal to beat them in 2nd game

    Hope Portugal fail miserably after beating us in S?F of Euro's
