"WORLD CUP 2022"


  

          

The biggest sporting event in the world deserves a goddamn post in GD.
We're already 2 days down.
The host country lost the opening game for the first time ever.

England spanked Iran and is gonna be hella annoying until they get brought back down to Earth.

Everyone was rooting for Senegal but The Netherlands, got the W in a game decided by just a few moments.

The young, inexperienced US team blew a 1-0 leads to Wales, who's playing their first World Cup in 50 years in a frenetic, somewhat sloppy game.

It seemed that Argentina would walk stroll into first place, Mexico and Poland would duke it out for 2nd.
Saudi's said NOPE!
Mexico/Argentina on Saturday is gonna be exciting


sidenote, officiating is feeling a little suspect so far starting with the opening game and that ridiculous offside call against Ecuador.

That was a shocking upset. Mexico probably needs the win today because I doubt Argentina let's them get a tie. Who knows though. Wish the games weren't so early. Going to have a meeting when the Mexico game starts so I'll miss the first half for sure.

In response to Reply # 10


  

          

My whole family roots for them, grew up rooting for them. That's my heritage. In other events/spots I'll root for USA but yeah can't really for this.

I do have a soft spot for Argentina, or did growing up. It's kind of faded. Obviously not rooting for them in the group stage. Not sure I will if they advance and Mexico doesn't. 100% rooting for Mexico on Saturday.

Brazil is kind of the Patriots of soccer so yeah not rooting for them.

Yeah I think that's it for teams in this cup.

How we feeling about our chances?

I honestly never have high hopes about the American Men's team, but holding England to zero with SEVERAL shots on goal got me feeling like we better than I though we were.

still will be tough to beat the big dogs, we have good players but not great attackers. Netherlands will be tough to beat, but it's certainly doable.

Argentina vs Poland
Mexico vs Saudi Arabia

Poland 4
Argentina 3
Saudi Arabia 3
Mexico 1

Most likely outcome is Poland and Argentina advance but no reason to think Saudi Arabia can't beat Mexico. Mexico needs to win big to advance.

I was thinking Mexico wouldn't make it to the round of 16 but for them to finish last??

I'm nervous to watch.

It was exciting to see them actually go for the win and have so many chances but it's so frustrating seeing them miss clear ones. Saudi Arabia did make some good blocks. That last second goal by them was kind of heart breaking. I think even without it Mexico was out but it basically ended their chances.

I cheered Messi missing the penalty earlier but that would had put Mexico forward, assuming they didn't give up the last second goal lol

just kept them out lol Mexico won 2-1 but it felt like a loss since it wasn't enough to move on.

Watching the game did make me wonder how Argentina lost to SA. Mexico very much dominated the game and if they knew how to convert it would have been an ugly blow out.
