Figured this would already be up..

Who you rooting for and/or think will win?

Rooting for Argentina (read: Messi) to win and for England to at least make the quarterfinals or semifinals.

However, I'm guessing that France or Germany will finish as champions

Didn't get to see it (stuck at work & have golf streaming) but OF COURSE Ronaldo gets a hat trick against Spain. Bet that free kick in the 88th minute was something to see!

It was a great shot but I liked Nachoís goal off the hop from outside the 18.  Camera angle shows just how perfect he hit it.

Between the Iceland draw and Mexico's win over Germany, I'd say the tourney is off to a fantastic start!!

Belgium, hometown has lots of German and Belgium influence, but having been to Belgium and loving it. I'm going for those lads.

Plus as a Chelsea supporter I've gotta root for Hazard. Who knows how much longer we will see him in Blue.

Thanks for adding to the conversation. Really. Gripping. Ignorance aside, these world cup group stages are bananas. England really needs to quell their talks on winning the world cup and start making sure they can outright win games. Can't ride Harry Kane's coattails all tournament.

Last night's game just summed up how frustrating it is to support England. We have some great players (not many world class ones), and should perform a lot better than we do. We should've been three or four goals up at half time, but wasted gilt edge chances and then conceded a really sloppy goal. We won it in the end, but we've made hard work of winning games an art form over the years.

It's the wastefulness in front of goal that will ultimately cost us. As is normally usual, we'll go through and face a team like Spain or Germany in the quarter finals, create and miss easy chances and then lose on penalties.

It does seem like Americans prefer to watch coach driven games like football and basketball. In football, every 45 seconds the players execute what the coach calls. In basketball itís just about every 24 seconds.

Movement based sports like soccer and hockey donít seem to be a great draw. Maybe Americans appreciate the final 2 minutes taking 20.

I kid, but it does seem this way to me.

Hey now.  Donít lump us all together.  I enjoy soccer and hockey while finding professional basketball to be a horrible sport to watch.

I was kind of hoping for Egypt to make a run, I think Mo Salah is a phenomenal player, but after today's loss that's not going to happen. I think Belgium could make a run with Hazard, De Bruyne, Lukaku, etc. I have a feeling it will be Germany or France though.

Even though I donít care for soccer, I would watch it before I watched basketball. I donít watch football either. Not much for professional sports outside of fighting (MMA and boxing) and golf.
