For me the semifinals will be: Argentina vs Brazil (Brazil wins) and England vs Belgium (England wins). So the final will be England vs. Brazil with England winning. Therefore the champion will be England.

I should explain that's Welsh national costume -and no the women don't still dress like that it's a photo from St Davids Day
(Our national Saints day, when wearing the costume was traditional) from 1950's .
(interesting factoid when the French invaded Fishguard in 1796 Jemima Nicholas had 50 women in that costume march in a circle on the headland and from the French camp on the beach it looked like an endless stream of British Redcoats so they surrendered )

Well you are ranked 15th in the world, we are 19th, and the group members are England 5th and Iran 20th.
It's a tough group
We will need to channel Jemima Nicholas I think.
Our defence gets panic stricken when they are on the ball, it rarely ends well.
A draw I think, or else we will fuck it up and gift you a goal

If it were rugby, Wales would win, but soccer is not very predictable, besides, all the players are faking non-existent fouls. We have to wait until France 2023

Wales v England tonight can't see an upset but let's hope for a good match and best of luck to the States and Iran, both of whom deserve to go through before we do on account of us playing completely crap up to now.

U.S. has dominated the game in terms of possession and chances, but Iran only has to tie to move out of the group stage. 45 minutes away from the answer of who moves on. Good luck, team U.S.

Edited after game ends. U.S. wins!! Beats Iran 1 - 0 (with 9 minutes of time added on, no less!)

Well, USA faces The Netherlands next, so I'm expecting a loss for the USA team. I mean honestly, this is soccer, a sport our men's team isn't good at. Maybe fair?

FYI, I was the one that did the lone vote for The Netherlands. :giggle:

Well done, England and USA Wales fulfilled their potential, which was none.
Good luck to both teams in the next round, both thoroughly deserved.

In fairness Danorian USA is 15th in the world rankings so should make last 16 so well done you lot

Well we chose to snore at this tournament. Having waited 64 years to see us in the finals I can honestly say that it wasn't long enough. We were bloody awful

Well done USA, a noble effort. Soft third goal flattered the scoreline a little but a good achievement to make last 16. Good young side I'm sure we will see more of in the future. Bravo!

Congratulations to England on their strong win. May they continue their winning ways. Not sure if you support England with the absence of Wales, Tally, but it is called Great Britain and you do share an island with England.

I got no issue if they play good football and deserve to win I am happy to applaud them.

I just object to the media hype where they get some average result and then the media is all "we can go all the way"

The reality is they aren't a top side they just think they are because 56 years ago they won a tournament with home advantage.
Germany , Italy, France, Argentina, Brazil have all reached the final 4 or 5 times or more and have won it several times and lost it several times. They are world class teams. England harp back to a semifinal in 1986 when the big teams don't even bother considering reaching a semi as a success.
I'm all for teams winning on merit, not just because they are Eng-ur-land. I wouldn't mind if they won the cup just so they stop banging on about 1966 when they last won something.

France are my pick in the next round, but let's just hope it's a good match

Hey, remember when the U.S. women's soccer team won so many matches: they won the World Cup four times -- in 1991, 1999, 2015 and 2019 -- and six Olympic medals, most recently winning bronze at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. At least that's not ancient history. As for the Men's team, eh, how about the weather we're having these days; crazy no?

I think the US team did play a good World Cup.
You always need to have a (somehow) realistic goal. With these players, they reached the knockout stage, which is a good result for that team.
They managed to get a draw against England and the defense worked well.
And they have a very young team, the youngest actually in this World Cup.
Will be interesting how that team will develop in the next 4 years. Perhaps then they will have more players in strong European clubs.
Perhaps, with the home advantage, they can then aim for the quarterfinal.

Not a soccer fan. But after this time, if they don't make it to a semi, consider it it a failure.

That is at least a U.S sports fan philsophy.
