I hope he takes himself down with a vicious red card.
Brazil or Argentina for me.
Right, like he’d get a red.
lol @ England
Preemptive, so I can quote it in the future.
Is there any particular player besides the usual suspects, that a casual watcher of the sport should keep an eye out for?
Looking forward to this World Cup.
It’ll be interesting to see how far Iceland makes it.
Hope Sweden make it out of the group stage, been a few world cups since they were at the tournament. I’m glad they at least got in.
In for a last place finish.
Spain just pulled the biggest WTF news you'll ever hear: the Spanish FA has fired Lopetegui two days before their opening match against Portugal.
Also congratulations to USA, Mexico and Canada for getting to host the 2026 World Cup.
It's just you and me, so there's a 50% chance you get first place.
Hope no one picked Spain: they just fired their coach.
I've joined up with the fantasy leage, with a totally auto-completed team. I'm curious how that will work out.
Joint Canada/USA/Mexico bid wins right to host 2026 finals.
I guess Spain didn't take to kindly to him being announced as the new Real manager, albeit after the World Cup.
What a bizarre decision. But I'm glad, all the more chance they'll crash and burn.
World Cup Hosting in 20206 means we won't miss out on three straight!
And such odd news for Spain/Lopetugi. I saw that he accepted the Real Madrid job, but it looked like that should have no impact on his World Cup status. Even more disappointing, they didn't hire Zidane!
Heels, Digbert, Richie, yankee - get in there!
The issue was he didn’t let the Spanish FA know he was talking to Madrid.
I get they're annoyed (presumably because they've not had enough notice to start lining up replacements) but firing him at this stage seems counterproductive.
Throws the whole preparation into turmoil
Absolutely. I didn't think they'd win. Now I doubt they'll get out the group.
Edit: The CONACAF qualifying will be quite odd for 2026, with three of the teams already in it. but with it being expanded that year I assume 2-3 additional teams will get in.
Well, that's just a dick move.
They should still get out of the group though, on talent alone. Portugal, Iran, and Morocco?
It could depend on how much the players liked him. They could down tools. Then again it could galvanise them.
it probably helps to galvanize the troops that they open up against their rival and current Euro champs, no? They surely won't want to be flat against Portugal.
I expect Russia to break South Africa's 2010 record of worst host performance. I also expect the Russian Ultras to cause some ugly scenes with other countries' real football fans.
I was close to boycotting everything to do with this year's world cup.
If Fantasy Football is too much of a bother there is also a simple bracket challenge and score predictor game.
For the bracket challenge (link here) the only thing you have to do is predict the final group standings and who goes through to the next round in the knockout matches. Use the code: 447c9cc4 or click here to join the league.
And the score prediction game (link here) you have to predict the final score of each match. Use the code: ea4563e2 or click here to join the league.
tl;dr for @Diggy
Click the damn links.
What if just reading that post is too much effort?
Edited my post just for you.
Are we out yet ?
Not yet, and I do like Gareth Southgate's answer in a presser.
Reporter: "How far away are you from a really good team?"
Gareth Southgate: "About 4 hotels".
HaHa! that's very good , did he really say that ?
