The world cup groups are out. My country (Switzerland) is in a group I think will be hard to determine the 2nd place, although we should be the betting mans choice for that position after a good performance in the Euros. Serbia and Cameron are not pushovers though and can get the results they need to make it happen.
Group buddies again this WC it seems. Hoping for a better performance this time though, but for us, 3rd place is probably the most realistic result.

I am an Argentinian fan. So I sincerely hope both of your teams defeats Brazil and advances to the next round. I'm sure it'll be a difficult task, but I'm hoping for the best.

Real Madrid Vs Man City .. . Can't see this staying 0-0 considering the first leg was 3-4 !

The theatrics from some of the players is embarrassing....

Do we stay up @LostLegend??? - After the Burnley loss I was 99% sure it was over, but somehow the miracle of Pickford's save have given us the 6 points. If we stay up its entirely thanks to him.

I know people are excited for CL final, FA cup final and so on... but nothing can beat the atmosphere on the Balkans. Tomorrow is the Bulgarian cup final between us (CSKA Sofia) and our biggest rival Levski Sofia. We call it "Eternal Derby". All the tickets for it are sold out. I don't remember last time they played in front of full stands. Don't expect much, our form is absolute shambles this spring but the fans are ready to perform!

Never discount the fan factor. And form does very little in such big derbies, sometimes it's who wants it more that decides who wins it.

On paper we have better squad. We were two points from the top on the winter break and after few bad results the players kind of gave up. I hope they rise to the occasion. Their fans are even more mobilized. They sold their sections for 10mins. It's going to be tense on the stands.

Nice World Cup so far. A mixture of upsets, thrashings and dull 0s. My team Switzerland thankfully got the result today, even if not overly convincing.

Germany will have a particularly hard time getting out, needing to beat Spain. Argentina I think can still qualify easily now they have been woken up.
