48 is an awful lot, but if that is the way they are splitting it it's kinda nice. I was thinking they'd do like 8 groups of 6 or something and was trying to figure out how that would work!

Also travel time is going to be a bitch! Like, split country games is alright is some cases like Korea/Japan, but like, if a team has a game in Mexico and the next one in Canada it's really going to hinder them, unlike a team who was already in Canada amd doesn't have to fly up! Or if they have a game in the east thn the west (or vice versa) timezones will screw them up!

This should be very interesting.

Oh yeah, I forgot FIFA is filthy rich for a minute :P

Maybe this is less of a factor than I think, it just seems like they're likely to spend all their time commuting and end up jet lagged.

I've been wrong before though!

Yeah, fewer teams would suck and I could totally see goid teams getting snuffed if they did that!

Also on the North American ones, will all 3 countries be guaranteed a spot? Usually the host country gets their team in automatically, but with 3 hosts how does that work??

But what if Russia beats Croatia?

Also France is going all the way so Uruguay had better start packing!

I know Uruguay is a stellar team and the next game is going to be really great to watch. I just think France can do it if they keep solid team play in their attacks.

I had 3/4 correct here, Bro, you had 2/4 (no points for "somebody").

Claiming victory :)

I don't understand that level of hooliganism. Like sure I get excited and hyped but how does that translate into ridiculous acts like this??

It really could be anyone's game at this point.

I was just looking at the brackets and noted 4 PKs for the Croatia/England set and none in the France/Belgium set which I think is interesting. Does that mean more favourable odds for the winner of France/Belgium to take the tourney?

Tactics and play absolutely are more important than the value of your team. I mean, Portugal is a prime example. Ronaldo must make a shittonne, and where did it get them? They didn't play cohesively and fell apart because of it.

I mean, Montevideo or Paris make the most sense. The English were very against FIFA when it was formed.

WOO

Yeah but what about every other armchair analyst’s hot takes and dark horses?

(Srsly, though, good call. France was overlooked by many because of their youth but they clearly got the job done at every stage.)


All my darkhorse picks were beaten by France >.>
