Well Russia seemed to have sealed that deal - 3-0 with the sub getting his first touch to score!!

They are worse than bad - how on earth did they qualify?!?!?



£40,000 so far :D
Now 50,000! :cheer:


Putin used the opening ceremony money to bribe the Saudis, I bet ;)

Glad Golovin got a goal; he was really making things happen. 4th goal was a beauty.

And what happens in 2026 when three CONCACAF teams have a bye?
That would be so unfair ... who will be left in the CONCACAF not to qualify. May be they could say the highest ranking host team that didn’t qualify through proper qualification can get the spot. In that way, if say USA and Mexico qualify through CONCACAF qualifier then Canada qualifies gets the host. If it is just Mexico that qualifies through regular qualifier, then the highest ranking of USA or Canada gets the host spot. If all three qualifies through regular qualifier, then the spot return to CONCANAF.

Anyway congrats to Russia for winning the first match

Looks like Salah will not start today, to protect his shoulder (from Luis Suarez’s teeth, probably ;)). I think that’s probably wise as Egypt is unlikely to win even with him.

I think it will depend on where the score is in the 2nd half. If it is all equal come the 60 or so min mark Salah could come on.

Oh, Yekaterinburg is in Asia and not Europe.
The match was really dull, Uruguay didn't look anything like the team ranking suggested.

You guys have no idea what I had to go through to be home in time for this match! And it was totally worth it!

Now, this is a match!

And Ronaldo totally took advantage of the defender’s legs to get that penalty. He could have easily diverted (Messi would have).

Feel like I’m finally watching the World Cup rather than some obscure league with this game.
