Uruguay-Portugal (Uruguay- I like the guy that almost bit someone’s ear off)
France-Argentina (Argentina - Messi is a nickname I have for one of my kids)
Brazil-Mexico - Mexico - (Somewhat indifferent here but Brazil fans remind me too much of Yankee fans)
Belgium-Japan (Belgium - Lukaku is my favorite player in this tournament)
Spain-Russia (I think this one goes to Putin’s army)
Croatia-Denmark (Croatia - may be my favorite team left)
Sweden-Switzerland (Another toss up but I will go with the hot Swedish women over the cheese)
Colombia-England (Can’t agree more. So many hot Colombian women in Queens!)

I agree on most of your picks but Russia have been lucky, England under performs but will beat Colombia. My favorite Germany are out so I will go with another country I have relatives in, Argentina.
Finally, when you say " So many hot Colombian women in Queens!", I am starting to think a few of you frequent the same massage parlors along Northern Boulevard.;)

At St. John's nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

Sweden-Switzerland (Swiss)
Colombia-England (Colombia)

I could see any one of these going the other way though... :)


Uruguay I hate Real and two of my friends are HUGE Barca supporters.
Argentina See above Barca reference and despite Tolliso I can't bring myself to root for the frenchies
Brazil. After that first round loss I can't root for el Tri and their goalie gives me the creeps.
Belgium. I know my wife will be watching this because of Prince Harry.
Spain I hate Real but the ruskies are toast.
Denmark Defense, defense, defense.
Sweden In what could be the most boring match of the round.
Columbia They have the best unis in the tourny.


With James potentially out for the rest of the tourny with a calf injury I may be wavering in favor of England. besides, my wife's half English.;)

It was great stuff. If the remaining seven games are half as good... Feel sorry for Messi but that's the way it goes. Mascherano was great in his day but he too is past his prime. Their camp was in a bit of disarray and it is tough to get all the attacking talent into the team so Aguero and Higuain did not start. Super goal by the Angel of Mary.

France have tons of talent. Mbappe was excellent and you can see why every big club was after him a year ago. Thought Griezmann, Pogba and Kante were excellent. What a goal by Pavard! I can see France beating wither Portugal or Uruguay.

That was a crazy 15 minutes or so when France went on the tear. Disappointing result. Nathalie 1 Gringo 0

Now Nathalie's rooting for Portugal because she thinks Renaldo is hot. I'm rooting for Uruguay because their chicks are hot but I'm taking the high road so I dont get in trouble and just saying I'm rooting for Uruguay because they are from South America :)

Haaaaaa she does sometimes. Especially after losses. She thinks it's funny how we all go crazy because she would tell me during games especially during the Norm years " why do you root for this crappy team you know they are going to lose "

Now during the last 3 years she kept on saying " did you really expect something different " lol
