I know that the US is not participating, but this is the World Cup so this is the thread for all your analysis, predictions, gifs, and what not.

Like the inevitable heat-death of the universe, I'm just assuming it'll end with some combination of Brazil, Spain, and Germany.

I like the length of that opening ceremony! Nice and short.

I’ll go out on a limb and predict Spain to lift the Cup. Yes, I know they lost their coach but I still fancy their chances. Though personally I’d love for a dark horse like Belgium or England to go all the way. And I’d be rooting for S Korea and Japan as always.

I have a feeling Mbappe will light up this tournament. So much talent and maturity in the kid.

Russia is up by 3 already. Did they get inspired or something? I mean Saudis are not on top of the world, but it is still a lot of goals for the Russians.

Agree, not a great team RSA but neither was RUS supposed to be. Home team's generally do well, home field advantage goes a long way for any sport. Plus Putin probably has the team's families locked away with the instructions to win or they die :evil:
