Most Dramatic Moments From The Group Stage

Germany World Cup exit Man Utd Liverpool transfers

What I know now is that Switzerland are better than I thought they would be and perhaps Brazil not quite as good as I had hoped.

It's all in the name of banter after defending world champions Germany were humiliated as they were knocked out of the tournament at the first stage on Wednesday.

While there may not have been a tactical revolution in Russian Federation, the tournament has seen its first-ever use of video assistant referee (VAR) technology. What's more exciting is that on Saturday, the first day of the second stage, Argentina's Lionel Messi and Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo will be in action!

"Fernando Hierro was a good player and now he's a good coach".

He should have been given a straight red and the fact he didn't had nothing to do VAR and everything to do with the referee's lack of courage.

Belgium - one of the few top-tier teams to deliver on its hype so far - plays Japan, which sneaked out of its group because it got fewer yellow cards than Senegal.

"I don't think there will be any big surprises".

Controversial Chechen Leader Grants Mohamed Salah Honorary Citizenship
Liverpool and Egypt superstar Mo Salah may be done with his national side once this World Cup concludes. Kadyrov posed with Salah and Hany Abo Ride, chairman of Egypt's football federation for pictures.


He needs to because this is neither the Brazil of Pele nor the more defensive Dunga version, maybe somewhere in between, and every cog must do his part or it won't work.

I think everyone has a soft spot for their last 16 opponents Mexico and not just because their fans have brightened up the event. They won all three group games, and a run to the semis like in 1998 is not beyond them, although coach Zlatko Dalic had a warning for his team before facing Denmark. I was here last summer for the Confederations Cup and they brought a young team and also won the European U21s Championships.

Soon after, Son and manager Shin Tae-yong addressed the crowd and said that returning home so soon after crashing out in the group stages was disappointing. This tournament, like so many before it, has once again proven that the World Cup is anything but predictable.

While some like Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are already representing one of the biggest clubs in the world of football, Real Madrid, there are unknown faces that may trigger an interest and help them seal a big move to a respectable football club.

"I understand that these questions are being raised. For two days we looked at their strategy, worked out that they would probably play 4-4-2 and then 5-4-1 when crossing the halfway line", Shin explained.

Russia had pledged to host a safe and secure World Cup in 11 cities which would be inclusive and diverse, but racist incidents at matches between Russian Premier League clubs and at an worldwide friendly earlier this year fuelled concerns that players and fans could be subjected to abuse.
