Croatia is playing really well, I didn't expect Iceland to win.

Argentina, still not playing like Argentina, had enough to beat an over-matched Nigeria as expected. Nigeria's only goal came on a gift of a PK that was an obvious flop.

You'd like to say that if Argentina keeps playing the way it is that France will trounce them in the next round but France hasn't been particularly impressive either.

 

 

None of the big dogs have been that impressive. Spain, Germany, France, Argentina, Brazil. I also think Poland was 1 seed and didn't even advance.

Started following Uruguay in the last WC and they're still one of my favorites.  The Swiss get most of my attention due to ancestry.  Thankfully both are really fun to watch and both have a good shot at this.

Nigeria had it in front of them and blew it.  They are going to regret those two missed opportunities late in the second half

Mexico for me. But if I had to pick at this point I’d say Croatia.

As far as which teams have actually been impressive thus far, yes, Mexico and Croatia are up there.

I'd say Uruguay, Belgium, and England too but they are doing it from the weak groups. 

Despite falling a man down early, I thought Colombia showed well against Japan and played really good against Poland. I see them turning it up in the knockout stage.

Croatia is my new favorite team. Love the checkered jerseys. It is so distinctive and recognizable... kind of like the Brown and Gold of Wyoming along with the bucking horse. 

If Croatia had a Falcon on their jersey you would probably have a perpetual boner.

The Group F qualifying tie breakers are pretty crazy. It will be interesting watching both games at the same time this AM. Mexico can still be knocked out if they don't win/tie.

They're up 2-0 on Mexico right now in the 73rd minute. 

Germany is tied 0-0 with South Korea in the 74th minute.

Pretty much comes down to Germany now. If they win, Mexico is out. If they lose or tie, Mexico advances.

Six minutes of stoppage time for Germany/SK.

Four for Mexico/Sweden.

SK scored a goal, but it was disallowed for offside and its in VAR now.

The Mexico fans are chucking shit on the field like +++++ing idiots.

Good grief, Mexico. Pathetic showing today, but credit to the Swedes. They knew they had to win to advance, had all the motivation they needed, and came in hungry
