0 per cent: that is the conversion rate of England’s No8s in their four World Cup penalty shootouts. Chris Waddle, David Batty, Frank Lampard and Jordan Henderson, who all wore the shirt number in 1990, 1998, 2006 and 2018 respectively, missed shootout spot-kicks. The latter’s saved attempt did not, however, prevent England from winning their first shootout in the competition.

France id going to take the World Cup 2018! They look pretty much unstoppable this year.

Happy 4th of July, America! (Only way to get a USA soccer fan into this thread....couldn’t even squeeze out a tie or better against Trinidad and Tobago? They deserve to be sitting at home this summer.)

#104 8 months ago

I'm calling the World Cup for Croatia! My absolute favorite vacation spot in the world. If any of you guys get the chance, go to Croatia, it is incredible!

#105 8 months ago

This World Cup has been amazing. None of the awful 0-0 ties (well, 1 I think). Nearly every game has been exciting and the tension can be felt all the way through to the end. If there are any of the old school soccer haters lurking in here, you could do much worse than letting yourself give it a chance. I am an admitted soccer nerd - but really, this is the most exciting entertaining World Cup I can remember. And this is as a neutral observer since the USA decided to be dogshit. Go enjoy it everyone!

It has been great but I've missed too many games. I'm a tried and true soccer fan myself. Became obsessed watching Henrik Larsson at Celtic. He is still the most electric player I have ever seen.

Wow! Some of these girls are probably thrilled their photos made it on the web for everyone to ogle, at least their father's are. Yeah that's my daughter, the one with the big white painted tits, I'm so proud!

The floppers are out. Now hopefully Russia and their rigged draw will go out.

#115 8 months ago

South America is out.

FIFA is corrupt, Russia is corrupt. If they win this it will be the biggest joke in sporting history.

Lol Russia won't win.

#118 8 months ago

Just like Leicester City couldn't win the English Premier League?

#119 8 months ago

The Croats will wipe the floor with Russia tomorrow.

#120 8 months ago

Yeah, Russia has been playing to tie every game. And Spain was a mess. Croatia should end them.

#121 8 months ago

I think Croatia will win too and picked them to win the cup before the tournament started. I'm just saying anything can happen and if Russia wins the tournament it's blatant corruption.

True enough. Anything can happen...you are correct. I just think Russia's time in this WC is over...they have been lucky to make it this far.

And so happy Brazil is out. Karma 4 the diving Neymar

#123 8 months ago

Funny how anything Russia does is corrupt....like our government is so pure. Ha!

Do you remember Rivaldo? He was a dive master! I think they teach that in Brazil.

Will host Russia keep the home field advantage? Croatia has other plans

England up 1-0 right now. I hope they don't win the World Cup. Don't get me wrong, I like English football, but we will NEVER hear the end of it, if they win.

#135 8 months ago

2-0 England!!!!!

#136 8 months ago
Quoted from Frippertron:

So true....but something I could endure. My old man needs this. Lol

#137 8 months ago

Hoping for a Russian win now. Lol. Better odds for England to face the Russians instead of the Croats.

#138 8 months ago

If Russia wins, I'll eat a pinball.

#139 8 months ago

Two of my top five are moving on! I hoping for a England vs Belgium final. Actually, it would be fun if the underdog and host country Russia could win the next match.

Belgium
Portugal
Argentina
Germany
England

#140 8 months ago

England looked very good against Sweden.

I am rooting for Russia because I love underdogs in the WC. I expect Croatia to win, but I would love a Russian win.

Thanks to Volkswagon commercials, I am cheering for Belgium to win it all because Hans knows how to dance!

The flopping is a killer for me. Players like Neymar are disgusting to me. Flopping should not be 'part of the game', it's dishonest and entirely dishonorable.

If the World Cup was a (pinball) game designed in the US, the next software patch would include the following -

* Modify free penalty kicks to reduce flopping and corruption

- if a grown man is writhing around like his leg has been decapitated (>30 secs), he will be substituted for remainder of game.

- change penalty kicks and make the shots more difficult (less automatic)
- free goals have too much impact for such a low scoring game, too great an incentive for flopping
- refs have too much power over outcome, encouraging corruption
- players who commit fouls may be moved to a penalty box for 5, 8, or 12 mins depending on class of foul (i.e. hockey)

There! Soccer improved and now capable of being embraced in the USA as well.

#142 8 months ago

Diving IS frowned upon and penalties are given for it.

#143 8 months ago

What is the best online sports book to use for betting? I’ve done some research but really can’t figure it out now that I’m outside of Nevada back home lol

#144 8 months ago

How does Russia play defense the entire match and only let up one goal, I don't get it? The ball is in their own third the entire time and Spain and now Croatia can't capitalize, WTF.

#145 8 months ago
Quoted from Frippertron:

Insufficient penalties apparently, it still happens with 100x more regularity than any other sport played by men.

Cultures are different, I get it, but players like Neymar are hard for me to watch without feeling angry and disgusted.

#146 8 months ago

That was one of the slowest moving balls on a goal I can remember.

The refs have called a good game in this Russia v Croatia match. While there have been several attempts at dives, the refs have ignored it. None of the players have faked injuries as well. Yay!

What an ending! Great game all around!

Hate the player, not the game.
