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 :)


Hoping Nathalie doesn’t read this Board, Mike! Lol.

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


There are a lot of similarity between the guys on this board and Peru Soccer fans and I'm being completely serious. The only real difference is after losses Peru soccer fans make the funniest meme's that Nathalie shows me on her twitter that she follows for their soccer

When Cueva kicked that shot over the net against Denmark and almost out of the stadium I was dying laughing at the genius of some of the meme's

Funny. Ah, that dose of ‘reality’ that is never ever welcomed by us Johnnies fanatics...!

Two great games today and two of the three "names" of the tourny are out. Uruguay played fantastic defense and bent but didn't break, they just kept absorbing pressure. Those last 10 minutes were intense.

Pepe scoreth and then Pepe giveth away.

If Cavanni is out they don't stand a chance against France.

Messi and Ronaldo gone on the same afternoon. End of an era. Two of the greatest ever. Uruguay were good value, Cavani took his goals well. They will be sweating his injury... should be a good one vs France.

If Cavanni plays he'll be matching up against his PSG teammate M'bappe.

How did Argentina expect to win today ? No thru passes , no running into space , no involvement with messi , an offense based on passing around the outside of the defense . few shots , count them on one hand .beautiful goal scored with the outside of the foot that caused it to curve back into the goal was never pointed out by the announcers .

Not great quality but high on tension / drama. Spain were a bit toothless, Rooskies tough to break down. Last kick save by Akinfeev was special. Reaction by Russian coach was priceless. The guy has vodka in his veins...

I thought I was watching Germany; pass the ball around outside, never have any penetrating runs, dominate posesion and.......lose.

Actually the two games yesterday were much better from an action standpoint.
