Probably if it will ever gonna be a World Cup based on possession of the ball Spain will be champion for ages :). Fortunately is not the case. Also Russia played like shit.Thanks God we have rugby.

People like particular sports for different reasons.

What some people like about Rugby is what other people will hate about it, same with football. The stuff that football haters complain about (diving, cheating, gamesmanship, tactical battles, thuggery) are precisely what football lovers love. Football rarely delivers 90 minutes of brilliance, but you always get drama, punctuated with the odd bit of brilliance, and when that brilliance does happen, it shines brightly. The fact that spirit and orgainstaion can overcome superior opposition is what is addictive about World Cup football.

Another poster (from Poland) bemoaned that Spain had all the possession but couldn't make it count, and said that would never happen in Rugby. Now, football fans might scoff at this, but the point being made here is that in Rugby you get blown away unless you are at the same level of your opponent, so it forces you to be aspirational, whereas in football you can be reductive in your approach to balance things out.

The two sports are very different, with different dynamics, different demands, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

It"s strange that CIA Radio does not see the same for the Croats!
We have at least 3 Osetians together with the head coach, one Azerbajan and one Brazilian ...

FIFA must necessarily intervene! :D

Yeah that is lame. Russia is pretty multiethnic. Most of their national teams have Tatars, Caucasians (both mostly Muslim), Ukrainians etc. Samedov is Azeri like you said. Pretty obvious if you look at him. Bad "journalism."

This propaganda radio created during II World War for broadcasting to Germany, is not journalism.

By the way a number of Hispanics and Nigerians do not want to leave Russia.
They are trying to obtain a residence permit.

In Russia it is difficult to survive a foreigner, there are no benefits, housing is not proveded.
You should only reli on yourself.

Benefits only citizens of former USSR .

The answer is very simple to break the Anglo-Saxon propaganda. "Russia has never had colonies in Africa and did not kill millions of Africans."

The referee for Uruguay-France will be from Argentina. I wonder if Vlad Iordachescu would be up to become a football referee...

Well FIFA likes showmen as refs. The Argentinian is waving more with his hands than anything else. Glad he doesn't get the England game though, as South Americans seem to feel robbed although the Colombians were the ones playing dirty.

Well, cry baby Neymar going home with the rest of his gang.

Belgium were brilliant. But Brazil, it seems never play all their best players - Jesus started but Doug Costa only got 20 minutes.

First ever World Cup were none of Germany, Brazil or Argentina in the semis.

I'm torn between wanting to see a new winner (Belgium, Croatia), wanting England to win, and seeing a France side restored to former glory.
