Is it because FIFA or because Qatar? Or both…?

Because FIFA has lost all shame and we got Qatar. I guess FIFA are eternally grateful that Putin gracefully waited for them to secure their bag and then start a war, imagine the mental hoops they would have to jump through if the last two hosting countries were reversed.

I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to ruin your thread’s mood, it was my instinctive honest answer.

Not in a football mood nowadays. I guess for our Iranian friends. Japan too maybe but they’re screwed.

Can understand if you are not in the mood for it. Did watch the opening game Qatar-Ecuador and it was rather disappointing. Qatar lost and will probably lose the other two games too.

Yeah the first match was kinda disappointing, Ecuador simply looked much stronger team ://

But hey theres more games to come, groups C, E, and G look like there will some great match-ups coming ^^

Australia lost their comfortable OFC slot and instead have to compete in the much tougher AFC. Only two teams in the AFC are ranked lower than Aus, and one of them is the host nation… so I really don’t like our chances of advancing.

(But hey, at least we qualified)

Just wasted time by watching SEN - NED (0-2).
We were lucky that the newbie goalkeeper Noppert played a good game.
But it also could have been a loss against Senegal.
Very mediocre game. Next game against Ecuador I hope to see a better playing Dutch team.
But okay, we won.

Argentina lost to Saudi-Arabia? o.o

How on earth did that happen? D

Well, Argentina mostly has Messi and he’s already elderly. Saudis are used to heat, have money. Plus luck.

The current temperatures in Argentina and in Qatar are comparable.

Most of the Saudi team play for a single club - Al Hilal - so they have some synergy that other teams might be lacking

@BHydden damn that game against France started out really good, in the first 15 minutes i seriously thought aussies were the better team. I guess that first goal really woke up the french team ://

But hey the still games against Tunisia and Denmark, theres still good chance to see Australia in top16 ^^
