Default World Cup 2018.

So the greatest sporting tournament in the World is under way.

Russia 5-0 Saudi Arabia. A comfortable win for the hosts which answered no questions really. Russia who looked weak going into the tournament really were fortunate to face the perennial whipping boys the Saudi's.
Russia are a poor team. Make no mistake about it. Gone are the days of Blokhin, Zavarov, Protasov et al. There is no-one driving this team. They battled well and caught the Saudi's in possession regularly but S.A were awful. Two nice goals at the end to put a gloss on the score. S.A offered nothing up front because the midfield were anonymous.
The most noticeable thing was the number of Saudi fans in the stadium. A nice start for Russia. Akinfeev didn't have a save to make.

For the last 20 years Saudi Arabia has been playing the role of a whipping boy. Their peak was World Cup 1994, when they left the group. As far as I know Saudi players don't even have the status of professionals.

How did Saudi Arabia manage to get to the WC? After what I saw today, it's hard for me to take them seriously. Good for Russia, the goals were nice, but Saudi Arabia is not a real opponent. It doesn't matter who they hire to be their coach, those Saudi guys are probably hard to work with. They probably think the coach is supposed to do what they tell him and not vice versa. Sure, for the money he's getting paid he couldn't give a damn. They're hardly playing as a team. Each of them is pointlessly dribbling and bitching to the referees when breathed on. I guess their whipping boys status is related to their overall attitude and lack of discipline. Money can't buy everything.

Apparently, one of the best supported nations in Russia is likely to be...
Peru!

The Peruvians have seemingly decided that it has been so long since they last competed in the finals that it's a near once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and in an unparalleled exhibition of WC frenzy, whole families are making the pilgrimage to follow their team, with an expected following of 40,000!!

Of the European nations, the Spanish, one of the favourites for the competition are likely to be the least well supported unless they make significant progress in the competition. A Spanish journalist was explaining today that the supporters just are not that interested in following the national side abroad.

The Asian region as seen by recent results in WCs is pretty weak

The Saudis had a decent pragmatic Manager with a WC pedigree
Made the 2010 WC final with a pretty average Holland.

Alas they had differences and after qualifying he left them.
Strangely hes now in charge of Australia whose Manager also left just after qualifying

ps

The Green Falcons, the lowest-ranked qualifiers, haven't been given much hope of winning the World Cup - they're 1,000/1 outsiders

https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/footb...-star-12141935

The only surprising thing about the Saudis being thrashed is they had 61% possession

The 32 teams

I have NEVER seen a team so shite-scared as the Saudi's were today !

What were they worried about ?

Quote:
Russia is ranked 70th by FIFA, three places below Group A rivals Saudi Arabia.
OK... Russia, as Hosts have not played a competitive match in years... but blimey their ranking really sucks. I can remember when they were up there as the Soviet Union and had the pick of everyone from the Ukraine to Lithuania.
They are sill the biggest landmass/catchment area... their ex-pat oligarchs own clubs throughout Europe. Why are they so cr@p ?

And they are. A bit brutal, but with no midfield to oppose them, defenders booting out any ball, even with acres of room, their confidence grew.

I'm truly appalled at Saudi Arabia's failure to fight in a 90 minute game.

Perhaps bombing hospitals in the Yemen with US Planes and US pilots distracted them ?

Utterly disgraceful performance by Saudi Arabia ~ imo

Does anyone know of a site where I can download complete games? I had one for years and two years ago but lost the link when I changed computers. I grabbed yesterdays game from a torrent but it wasn't English language commentary.
