Default World Cup 2018

Productivity from around the world is going to drop off the next few weeks!

We are an international company and our break rooms with TVs are packed this time of year, love how it brings people together.

I am a huge Messi fan so of course I am going for Argentina!

I know Soccer isn't huge on here but who else is excited?

Russia / Saudi Arabia kick off the cup at 10am today!

I'm ready for it. Spain fired its head coach yesterday! USA flamed out and couldn't get in. Russia hosting the event will be as interesting as the Sochi Games.

I'm all in. I find this year's field to be shallow and lacking. Just seems weird that there is no US, Italy, Netherlands and Chile. Lot of "little" guys on the big stage this time. But, I will still watch every game that I can and look forward to the later rounds when the heavy weights begin to tangle with everything to lose. Love me some World Cup.

Early match of the tournament is Spain vs. Portugal tomorrow at 1. Should be a fairly predictable event, with all of the usual so going deep. Brazil is not as good as in the past, and some usual biggies are missing. I hope Argentina wins it this time but Germany will probably roll.

Germany and Mexico are in the same group so that could get interesting.


Let the matches begin!!!

Agree, alot of smaller guys on the stage but I like that!

I work with a guy from Morocco and it is their first appearance in the cup in 20 years, or course, he is there for 3 weeks lol. He dropped thousands on this once in a lifetime trip, I would too if I were him.

It's a little anticlimactic without the USMNT involved, but that's what we get.

All in! Group B is what I’m most excited about, lots of natural rivalries and my adopted second home country of Morocco has somewhat of a chance to make it out of the group stage. Should be a really good tournament, I think Brazil or Argentina takes it home this year. Basically, I’m rooting for anyone other than Iran, Russia, Germany or France.

Time to start saving for the 2026 Cup, I’m already excited about that!

I'm still just bummed we aren't in it. Even if we didn't have a chance lol..

I usually take a week or 2 off work for the world cup and chill at bars all day but I'm just not as excited this time around..

I still have time to get into the spirit though

This is why I just can't get into US Soccer we don't even play on the same level as these other power house teams/countries.

I watched US Vs ARG live at the Copa America and it looked like ARG was playing thier B team subs

Man, hanging at bars all day day drinking while fans go nuts sure does sound nice!!!

not a huge futbol fan but will watch any sporting event at the elite level competing for a World Championship. I agree with Germany repeating as they are a fine tuned machine. I like Uruguay as a dark horse and Luis Suarez will have to carry this team.

Biggest surprise in the 2018 WC is Italy not making the field. They've won the WC 4x's (most recently in 2006) and have 2 runner-up finishes. The Italian fans have got to be pretty ticked off right now.

Have you seen the new young guns playing in the USMNT? They're pretty good. With a little more experience, I think US Soccer has a bright future ahead.

My interest in soccer is usually a negative number unless the USA is playing in the World Cup or the Olympics......men or women. Probably more so with the women. Without the USA in it, I'm not feeling it...

KSA did better than I expected against Russia, but they just didn’t have the depth.

Egypt really surprised me against Uraguay, that goalie is a gamer! Missed the first half of Morocco taking out those Iranian thugs, but I’m here now baby!

Fun Fact#1: Morocco is our oldest friend, they were the first country to recognize the United States as an independent nation.

Fun Fact#2: Iran isn’t getting to play with their preferred footwear, the recent reinstating of sanctions prevented Nikes from being imported

Yes, one of the Iranians in his pink shoes tripped over the ball and rolled about halfway across the field. It was actually pretty funny

The sport needs baseball bats, shock collars controlled by the spectators, a couple of alligator infest moats, and an occasional rampaging rhinocerous to make it interesting enough for me to sit and watch.
