    I was rooting for Tunisia all along. But I noticed from the start that their defense was fuzzy. Especially during corner kicks, there was often a gap in the defense

    Football's coming home lads! Sorry everyone else gonna go and give Belgium a thumping next week, breeze through the knockouts and Kane's gonna snatch the golden boot. It's set in stone.

    Nippon banzai! When you play against 10 men for around 90 minutes, you're kinda expected to beat your opponents

    On a different note... Senegal is beating Poland 2-0 with 2 of the weirest goals I've ever seen in World Cups. Definitely the weirdest ones of this edition.

    Russia's been the biggest surprise for me so far. Not only are they basically guaranteed a last 16 spot, they're also scoring goals galore. That run will most likely come to an end once they meet a good opponent in the last 16/8 but it's kinda cool to witness while it's lasting.

    as for Russia, I believe their surprising road is coming to an end with Uruguay, and a full stop when they face either Spain or Portugal.
    Japan beating Colombia wow, and Senegal winning too, I really want an African country to pass the next fase

    That had to be the worst official match I've seen from Portugal in a very long time. I'm really sorry for the Moroccans, they tried so hard in both games and ended up losing both unfairly... I really hope that something changes in the team in the next match against Iran. That was embarassing.

    Watching Iran vs Spain right now and OH MY FKING GOD, why are the freaking vuvuzelas there? This constant garbage sound destroys the entire atmosphere.

    If it is coming from Iran fans then I hope they lose and get out of the world cup if only it means no damn vuvuzelas anymore.

    It's was a nice game for Ronaldo, Patrício and their other friends, I mean, we won, but I liked it more when we played with the national team.
    Morroco played great on the other hand. They deserved to score more than us so it felt more like a tie. We're keeping 2016's tactic, tie till you reach the final then score at the last moment.

    There's a difference between playing defensive football and playing badly. Portugal won the Euro by playing defensive football, but doing it well, after the group stage. In this world cup, the team has just played very badly.

    That's just cause you lost, it's normal to be sad.
    But go and check euro 2004 history and see what a real heartbreak looks like.

    And our problem in 2016 was finishing the plays with a goal. Basically what happen to Morroco today.
    If you check the statistics the numbers are there, good ammount of ball possession, good amount of shoots, etc. But sometimes a bit of luck along, or against, skill is a big factor.

    I wish we'll see Portugal vs Brazil in this world cup. Two team that are polarized around one player. And they pretty much speak the same language I think (not sure how different they are)

    lol, I had completely forgotten that France had made it to the final in 2016

    Portugal in 2016 didn't play against any major team before the final. They just sneaked in there. They were mediocre in the groupe stage (3draws, against Austria, Iceland and Hungary), they almost got kicked out of the cup because of that. And then, they happened to play against countries that were "not-very-favorite-to-win-the-cup"--- Poland and Wales. At best, the match against the Croatians wasn't that bad.
    In the end, they didn't have to play against Germany, Spain, Italy or England.

    "Playing defensively" pretty much means "wear out and bore the shit out of the other team, and run 5min before the end and score if you can". It looks like a boxing match, not football.
