FIFA World Cup 2019
« on: June 05, 2019, 01:01:56 AM »
Deserves its own thread.

The winners seem likely to be either hosts France, Germany, America or, maybe, England. The latter seem to have a better chance of winning it than ever before with the increasing professionalism of the domestic game.

Hopefully Scotland can sneak through as one of the best third place teams or, less likely, group runners-up. Pretty tough with England and Japan in the group but they should beat Argentina and that might be enough if results go their way...

I've never been massively impressed by Marta despite the fact that she seems to win World Player of the Year all the time. Hopefully she will show what's she made of on the biggest stage.

Also hoping that an African team can make an impact, for a change, and will have a soft spot for the Reggae Girlz on their debut.

Oh, and assume the yellow vests won't be disrupting the tournament? Haven't noticed them in the news so much lately.

Iíve never bought an England kit but was thinking the bespoke claret away kit looks good.

The Japanese women's national team are heroes here, and have traditionally been far more successful than their male counterparts. It's a tough group for both Scotland and England. One of them will go out, I reckon.

All three could go through, as four of the six third place teams will progress. Can see a lot of the African teams getting thrashed in the other groups so Scotland may need a point from England or Japan or to hammer Argentina to progress.

England will qualify easily enough, I reckon.

Yes, I know. That's why I already started a thread.

I find it vaguely amusing how much the media are trying to push this as a big event, when hardly anybody gives a toss about it.

You should Tweet Richard Herring and ask him.
