Any fellow Britbongs (or Euros) following the world cup? Thoughts on our victory against Tunisia? Predictions on who's going to win/whether England will make it out of the group stage?

Probably eliminated at quarter-finals as is tradition, but as I'm cynical I'll call elimination during group stage like last time's fiasco.

The pick of Germany for the work sweepstake didn't look to be such a surefire choice though.

We would pretty much have to lose to Panama for that to happen. And Tunisia would need to get lucky against Belgium. Possible, but not likely.

Optimistic. Wouldn't we have to beat Columbia or Senegal to get there?

Switzerland are doing pretty well mate.

Yeah, it will almost certainly be Brazil vs. Germany. I'll be rooting for Brazil but Germany will probably win it.

I'm not holding my breath. Germany failed to beat Mexico. A team that even mexicans feel is second rate at best. I'm going to say Brazil/Argentina (maybe Mexico if we light enough candles) vs Portugal/Spain

It was probably just a blip. Spain lost their opening game in 2010 and then went on to win it.

Portugal stand a decent chance of reaching the final though.

I've been lucky enough to catch a good bit of games. That Spain-Portugal game was one of the best soccer games I've seen in a while. Despite some struggles with Iran today, I still think Spain is the most complete team I've seen so far. A rematch for the World Cup with be cool, but I don't think Portugal has enough steam to get there. Ronaldo will come up scoreless eventually and someone else will have to step up.

Argentina-Croatia tomorrow should be a great game. Argentina will show tomorrow if they can overcome the aura of drama that is constantly surrounding that team and do something worthwhile. If they can win their group and Spain wins theirs, I like the chances of Messi vs Ronaldo in the quarter finals.

Haven't seen the stats, but I feel like Kane has already scored more World Cup goals in one game than Rooney did in three world cups.

The Latin American teams keep getting knocked around like a bunch of chumps. So far Mexico is the only team that has won. (Last I checked)

This World Cup has felt especially intriguing. So many late goals, it feels like, and I genuinely don't have a good idea who should be the favorite.

I got almost my entire first round bracket correct. I went 7 for 8. Only one I got wrong was the one everyone got wrong: Spain vs. Russia. Unfortunately for me, I picked Spain to go to the Final and win. Soooo... I'm not in as good a shape of winning the office pool.

I still don't trust England, but they won a shootout, so, I am maybe starting to think that they just might make it to the Final, especially with that side of the bracket being comparatively weaker. I'll be rooting for Belgium over Brazil, but I suppose Brazil has to be the favorite on the left side at the moment.

Been some really, really good games.
