Wait, all 3 countries get in automatically?

Can we rig our group picks like Russia did?

3-3. Ronaldo hat trick. Two teams that have a shot at the trophy.

Spain better in most aspects. They don't have Ronaldo tho.

Mexico look great. But gassed hard at the end. Different game in the second half you would think.

Senegal have been fun to watch. Poland was supposed to be the dark horse WC contender. Senegal are 2-0 up, look good.

The [something] Lions are all big, fast and skillful dudes. Almost all play in England and France. Not a bad mix for Senegal.

e: 2-1

Pretty amazing finish for Germany... from the brink of elimination, down to 10 players to back in the swing of things.

Swedish player gets racially attacked by fans upset about his mistake.

Sweden: Where being white, but with dark hair, means you're a different race? The dude's half Turkish half Swedish, as I understand it.

Zero excuse for racial intolerance.

That said:
This guy was hot hot garbage from the moment he stepped on the field as a late sub. He literally did nothing but foul, get beat, misplace passes, and eventually give up the free kick that led to Germany winning. He was BAAAD.
