This has to be the sports speech of the year:

Hervé Renard’s passionate speech at half-time changed the course of the game between Saudi Arabia and Argentina.

I think Argentina is getting stronger as the world cup goes on, next game is Argentina again Australia.

Bye
Fernando
yes true and I admit that as a French man, it's better to play against Poland than Argentina for the 1/8 game.

I've got Canada drawing against Morocco, as well as a draw in the Croatia-Belgium match.

Germany and Spain winning.

I don't think that Spain will/wants to win.
Because that would lead to a match against Brasil very soon.

If spain let's Japan win Germany it screwed. However they can screw Spain back by letting Costa Rica win. Then both Spain and Germany are out.

That would be quite the spectacle haha Not going to happen.

I don't believe in this kind of theory. If you want to become world champion, you have to face your strongest opponent anyway.

Time for Messi to establish he is the greatest player of all time

already 2 to 0 for Morocco against Canada.
I'm afraid that Canada might be punished.

Sure he is among the best, but they are more, you can't compare players at that level. Pele, Maradona, Cruyff, George Best, CR7, Beckenbauer, Zinedine Zidane. But I agree Messi is on the top of my list. And not to forget Gordon Banks!

I love having the World Cup at this time of the year. It's much better than summer especially when those of us in cold climates are in the house. There's too much going on in summer to devote hours to watching games. It's perfect. Even February/March wouldn't be bad. But it's great around the holidays.

Belgian player Lukaku absolutely flubs two sure goals within minutes of each other. First one he had a wide open net from directly in front after a big juicy rebound off the foot of the Croatian goalkeeper and clinked it off the post. Then he sailed a header over the top of the net from directly in front. A bad omen maybe?

Maybe Canada can actually win a match in 4 years. grinning smiley

Congratulations on the group win, Marocco! Huge!

It's over, Belgium is out. Lukaku misses about a half dozen beautiful opportunities right in front of the net.

The big challenge for any team is to replace the old guys with new generations before it is late. It would be interesting to know the average age of the teams at this championship. Marcus Rashford is 25 years old, young and highly successful on Team England. Bruno Fernandes is 28, also successful on Team Portugal.

Messi is 35, still performing like in his old days, he is keeping the other team's defence players busy while other great Brazil players like Richarlison (age 25) score great goals.

Interesting games, that is for sure.

Looks like the US team's average age is less than 24.

Maybe we can score more than one goal in 3 games! Today's goal was actually a Morocco own goal. Hopefully in 2026 one of the Canada games will be at BC Place!

Well if the US beats the Netherlands and Argentina beats Australia, then the US will play Argentina and get a shot at Messi. No smartphone pics either.

Not as dangerous as when they had David Villa, David Silva, and Fernando Torres in the lineup.

Japan ties it at 1-1.

Japan takes the lead 2 - 1 with a stunning goal just minutes later! Spain is flustered.

Agree 100 percent for us in the US. Looking forward to the final during Christmas season.

the second Japanese goal is not valid.
I wonder how they did not see on the video that the ball was out.
