agree!
Id go nuts if Armenia was in the WC, and Id pay stupid amounts to go and watch in person. And then, Id take any kind of positive news. lol

It’s gonna happen. Plan your trip now. 2026. With the finals expanding to 48 teams it can happen.

Can you imagine an Armenia soccer game in LA? It’s gonna happen

Iím being selfish. A game in La would be amazing for us here. We might fill 90000 Armenians inside a stadium.

Pretty interesting morning as we lose Germany and Mexico goes thru despite a 3-0 loss to the wonderful country that brought us Mats Sundin and IKEA.

Great drama. Great soccer.

So glad Argentina is out. I don't enjoy watching them at all. Dirty and whiny.

Now let's go Portugal!

I want to throw up.

Spain is so much better than Russia. Sometimes thats just how it goes in this sport, but I despise teams who sit back, defend and stall for penalty kicks. Not deserving.


Makes my Croatia/France picks look better. lol

I couldn't agree more. It's almost a flawed sport at the World Cup level. It seems that the teams that play killer defensive are rewarded more often than not in a penalty shootout.

Spain should have been much more aggressive though. There slow buildup also took the life out of the game. By taking so much time with there passes, they also limited there scoring opportunities

I don't know how the announcers are in Canada but the US ones are borderline unlistenable

This afternoon, we have an over/under on how many times this one guy says "Quality" in a match
