    Big fan of Spurs and Harry Kane, so I'll be pulling for England but I really don't see them getting past the round of 16. Very young (with a few exceptions).

      I'd pick Die Mannschaft as the early favorite with Brazil a close second. Wouldn't be surprised if Argentina, Spain or Belgium took home the trophy.

      I’ll be watching this week, but only when the US plays. Looking forward to it!

            Over 265 Million people play soccer worldwide and the sport generates BILLIONS of $$$ every year worldwide. Just the facts Donkers. Just because someone or MILLIONS of someones around the world likes a sport doesn't take away from the popularity of it and the money it generates.

                Yeah, I was going to "defend" my meme posting but got totally distracted by the avatar.
                Dayum...
                Forgot what I was going to post.

                So then ...since flopping has been eliminated (at least since two weeks ago when I watched two teams flopping around like fish out of water) ... I stand corrected. They were probably Mexicans.

                Carry on

                There has to be something for 5'3" 130 pounders to do.

                  Grown men in short pants kicking each other in the shins and flopping around in pretend agony whenever anyone enters their safe space. :lol:

                    Yeah, those are jockeys. Soccer players are average size and shave their bodies. :lol:

                      That is an average sized Central American, South American or Asian.

                      I enjoy watching the World Cup, and with the U.S.A. out, I do not have a favorite. But at some point an underdog will emerge and that will be the team I cheer for.
