World Cup so far - very entertaining!
« on: Jun 16, 2014, 09:14 »
I can't remember any other World Cup starting with such positive, attacking football. It seems like everyone is at least 'having a go' to try and win their first game, rather than settle for a point in a bore draw. Costa Rica turned England's group upside down with their win, and even though Italy beat us, getting something from the next game will still give us a chance to progress. There's some decent teams in the world now, it's not like the cannon fodder that used to qualify and then ship six or seven. The kick off times are taking some getting used to though, and i've missed the 11 o'clock ones a couple of times now. How is everyone else coping?

... and now we have to rely on others. If Costa Rica manage a draw versus Italy, England will be out. We can only hope Italy win both of their remaining games and we can beat Costa Rica, and even then it'll depend on goal difference.
