Good father's day treat.
1pm Costa Rica v Serbia
4pm Germany v Mexico
7pm Brazil v Switzerland
Not a bad lineup.
Costa Rica 0 - 2 Serbia
Germany 2 - 0 Mexico
Brazil 4 - 1 Switzerland
The 2 main contenders for the tournament are finally starting tomorrow. Let's see.
Costa Rica - Serbia has the makings of a good game.
Costa Rica 2-2 Serbia
Germany 2-1 Mexico
Brazil 3-0 Switzerland
Because I've said these, I'll have to plop a £1 on those scores just in case.
Too many times on this forum I've made predictions of two/three games, and then all coming true without laying something on it.
Finally some good teams
England on Monday too
Praying that Brazil score early against the Swiss otherwise it could be a shit game because of how horrible the Swiss are.
Germany v Mexico could be a very good game. I expect Brazil to beat Switzerland easily.
Sunday, nothing works, good thing i have spare keyboard.
I think we struggle to beat the Swiss. I can’t remember the last time Brazil started a tournament with an easy win. We are slow starters even the past teams.
I’m looking forward to seeing SMS for Serbia as I’ve never seen him play before and see if he really is worth £100M that Lazio value him at.
The Germany and Brazil games will be good. I’m particularly looking forward to the Germany game as going to watch it on Playstation VR via the BBC Sport VR app on the PS4.
My predictions for the 3 games are:
Costa Rica 1-2 Serbia
Germany 3-1 Mexico
Brazil 4-1 Switzerland
Costa Rica 0 - 0Serbia
Germany 2 - 0 Mexico
Brazil 3 - 0 Switzerland
Don’t think there’s been a standout “holy feck, they are going to be hard to stop” performance yet, think we’ll get it tomorrow.
Only 3 games?? Not having that!
Costa Rica 1-0 Serbia
Germany 2 - 2 Mexico
Brazil 1 - 0 Switzerland
Now, that would shake things up.
Think Germany and Brazil will be comfortable wins so both teams setting down a maker especially as the other favourites haven't looked great.
Serbia-Costa could be interesting but Costa Rica were really poor v England and will put men behind the ball so not hugely hopeful on that one.
Haha. Yeah, can't forget about tournament specialists England.
I think there might be a shocker in the Germany-Mexico match.
I honestly believe that England will go above and beyond this time and progress from their group. Hell, I'll even stick my neck out here and predict that they will not lose on penalties in the first round of the knockout stage.
As a Mexico fan, i’m really nervous for this match. Our manager is insane (the Bielsa type of insane) who’s typically been high-risk/high-reward and risks/experiments A LOT. Either expecting a sort of upset against the Germans or complete annihilation of the Mexico squad. There won’t be an in-between IMO (this is how it’s typically gone under this manager). Lets see what happens..
I'm really nervous for Germany today, because of their poor form in the friendlies, the ongoing distraction and the curse of the defending champion. I'm still cautiously optimistic that the lads would win it because its...Germany, they always turn up in major tournaments and find a way to go far. Really hope Germany can win this to calm my nerves, as I have bought tickets for their potential knock-out rounds up till the semi-final so if they don't finish first in the group, this would screw up all my tickets and travelling plan in Russia when I already have my hotels and trains/flights booked to the cities of the last 16 to semi-final. Please Deutschland just win this, don't care any result just a win.
Costa Rica will beat Serbia
And Brazil game will be a draw.
This sounds good for my bet that I laid earlier.
Serbia to win to nil
Germany and over 2.5 goals
Brazil to win to nil
12 quid wins 145
Don't forget Löw probably benching Reus
Still it's only group stages and 'only' Mexico. So I still expect DIE MANNSCHAFT to win.
Looks like a sound bet.
Only 3 games today? Bah. Suppose it will have to do.
That’s a great bet
Going to miss the Germnay match because of a Eid gathering Hopefully will be able to catch the first half before leaving and Germany can settle the match by then
Good the more interesting games are at watchable hours for me after work.
What are Germany expected to line up with? Ozil or no Ozil?
Who the feck plans a wedding in a World cup year ffs. Missing all 3 games
What horrible people.
That's why "speak now or forever hold your peace!" was invented. Use it.
As a Serbia fan, I'm optimistic about today's game and will certainly be disappointed if we don't win today.
The weakest part of our team is disjointed defence, and the coach to whom this will be the first ever competitive game in a career.
Mexico vs Germany will be a good game, both good teams. Germany should easily take care of them though.
It seems like Özil will start while Reus is on the bench after Löw confirmed that Draxler starts.
Wish we got South Korea in the opening match instead. Mexico is arguably the toughest opponent in the group and they always perform well in the World Cup, only missing out on goal difference to Brazil for the top spot in 2014. Not sure why Löw is not starting Reus, Germany badly need speed and there seems to be no speed in this team. Apparantely Ozil won't be starting as well. Hope it has nothing to do with the Erdogan scandal and I just hope this whole shitstorm would not ruin the atmosphere in the team. Here's hoping Ozil or Gundogan score a match winning goal to get back into the fans' good book. Come on Deutschland.
