    Re: World cup

    I can’t believe that the Canadian soccer team is considered “good”. SMH.

    Hockey, world dominance or at least outstanding. But soccer? Canada? Geez. I gotta see this.

    Re: World cup

    The government in Qutar band alcohol sales at the last minuet for all games in the country. You can bet that went over well.

    Budwiser posted a picture of a warehouse full of cases of world cup beer cans that can't be distributed.

    They announced that what ever country wins the WC will be given all of the beer that couldn't be sold.

    Re: World cup

    World Cup in November, without Budweiser, and everything else in and out.
    May the best team win and everyone happy. Without fighting, without mass hysteria, without scandals, without corruption, without money goals, without chaos.
    ...In the name of the sport in all its purity and true spirit of sportsmanship.

    Lol, I wish.
    If we all are watching the same news we all know how insane things are behind the curtains.

    Re: World cup

    a] Strange way that the groups are setup. like England, Wales & USA in the same group.
    b] Crowd noise on US TV makes the game unlistenable.

    And add Iran into the group to ‘spice’ things up a bit. England gave them a proper thumping this morning to kick things off.

    So many questions about why Qatar but they will become political too quickly. Glad I am not there and can mute the fake crowd noise.

    They could have accomplished the same with just four stadiums. They are all within the same small area.

    Wow, Saudi Arabia defeated Argentina (2-1)!



    https://www.fifa.com/fifaplus/en/wat...sLu9uErbJ7G0DZ

    "Saudi Arabia has declared November 23 (Wednesday) as a public holiday in the kingdom to celebrate its historic win against Argentina in the Fifa World Cup in Qatar.

    It applies to all employees in both public and private sectors, as well as all students across the country. The Saudi stock exchange will be closed on Wednesday and will reopen on Thursday, state TV reported on Tuesday.

    Saudi Arabia beat title favourites Argentina 2-1 at the Lusail Stadium in Doha on Tuesday in one of the greatest World Cup upsets in history."

    Re: World cup

    i was surprised how good the canadians were against the famous belgians. at least as good.

    usa played very well too in game 1 against wales. first half was fresh direct fast soccer, second half they were a bit out of power. game 2 against worldclass england, wow, they fighted them very well as a team, england didnt know what to do. i think they will qualify for next round.

    thumbs up for the saudis and japan for theyr incredible victories. so nice to watch.

    Saudi Government bought every member of the team the beat Argentina a 2023 Rolls Royce Phantom. Even if you can't afford the cost of a $420,000 car, you can always sell it.

    Re: World cup

    my country got hammered brutally by portugal, 1-6, no chance at all.
    now the cup really starts, most often quarter and semifinals are the best games of a tournament.
    france-england will be killer i hope.

    Assuming both Brazil and Argentina make it through the quarterfinals, that should also be killer. My guess is that one of these 4 teams will be the eventual winner, but needless to say there have already been plenty of surprises in this World Cup.

    Argentina first will have to defeat the Netherlands, my bet is the Netherlands will win, but I am biased, :-)
