I don't care about the World Cup or soccer, but this tickled me.

Was a strange weekend of results. The big teams all struggled - Spain drew with Portugal, Brazil with Switzerland, Argentina with Iceland, Germany lost to Mexico. France struggled to a win over Australia.

Be interesting to see if any of them bounce back or we have a shock loss at the group stage.

England kick off against Tunisia tonight. I hope they lose before the English media hype has them favourites to win the tournament after one win against inferior opposition.

Evander Kane is a scoring machine... England and Belgium look good but neither has faced a powerhouse... Should be a great tourny of 16

This World Cup has been great. Completely mad. Obviously started out with Italy and the Netherlands not even qualifying but now you're seeing the likes of Spain go out to Russia, Germany not make it out of the groups.

All the top seeds have also ended up in one side of the draw so only one of Brazil, France or Belgium will make the final while leaving the other half open for Russia, Croatia, Sweden, Switzerland (the top ranked), Colombia or (hopefully not) England to make the final.

There's been some brilliant games too, France 4-3 Argentina probably being the best with some incredible goals.

The France/Argentina game and the Spain/Russia game are absolute counterpoints when it comes to enjoying soccer.

The France game was back and forth, high offence, high skill, high entertainment - from two talented teams that wanted to outscore the other.

The Spain/Rus game consisted of one team that wanted to score, and the other who just wanted to kill an hour and a half and get to a shootout. Result - completely boring frustration, compounded by the fact that it worked.
