I’ll put it on here rather than the non Alty fc chat with it being so quiet in June.

Massive win for Russia, that five goal haul gives them a chance of getting though with another point from their next two games. What a position they’ll be in if Uruguay and Egypt draw tomorrow lunchtime

Cheering on Uruguay here, so I'm very much looking forward to seeing how their take-no-prisoners defenders 'nullify' Mo Salah on Friday.

Salah will be fine unless Suarez bites him.

I have Saudi in the office sweepstake. The £10 consolation for the team with the fewest points and worst goal difference is all mine.

Really pleased with my £100 bet on Spain the day before they sack their manager.  Angry Grin

I fancy Germany to edge France in the final. I've stuck £2.50 on Germany to win it and Griezman to win the golden boot at 80/1.

Ive got Tunisia in the work sweepstake...

Quite optimistic about England...they've got a bit of a PP Alty look about them with lots of cover in all positions and a young no fear outlook......

How dire were Saudi Arabia??....but great finishing under what must be some pressure by the Russians....

I note that the 2026 tournament will be extended to 48 countries. Having seen Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Morocco, and Iran already I'd say the existing 32 is way too many.

I have a feeling Serbia might be the dark horses - especially seeing as Brazil and Germany might meet earlier on and open up that side of the draw.

I still think Germany will win it in spite of yesterday's result. A few countries such as Portugal and Serbia will be very difficult to beat and you'd always fancy them on penalties. The tournament is quite open for a change and has captured my interest more than I thought it would.
