    Here is a thread to discuss the 2018 edition of the FIFA World Cup.

    Since this thread began after the teams that make the Round of 16 are determined, let's discuss everything that happened and will happen.

    Yes, the defending champions and favourites to win it all, Germany, are out (and lost to South Korea in the group stage).

    Haven't been watching, but was Germany getting too old?

    I like the name of Tunisia's team (whom we beat and who are now out): Les Aigles de Carthage ("The Eagles of Carthage"). When I heard the name in French I thought it must be a translation from Arabic but if Wikipedia is right the French is the original.

    Croatia can put the cat out and they're looking razor sharp, along with france.

    Regarding this game now, if Russia can make good use on the counter (which they haven't thus far), I can see them nicking this.

    I fancy croatia to get to the final but they need to put that poor performance behind them from last night. Worst I've seen them play.
