RUSSIA 2018 - THE WORLD CUP THREAD.

A right load of bollocks...

RUSSIA 2018 - THE WORLD CUP THREAD.

As it says on the tin.

England play the first of their pre World Cup friendlies tonight against fellow qualifiers Nigeria at Wembley.

The second game will be against another qualifying team, Costa Rica, and that match will be played at Leeds United's Elland Road ground on Thursday 7th.

There were quite a few friendlies last night, the most notable I suppose was France beating Italy 3-1 in a match which I guess was arranged some time before Italy failed to qualify for the finals.

France are tipped as one of the favourites to win the competition but I doubt you can read much into last night's result.

Current bookies favourites are averaging the following odds:

1. Brazil - 4/1
2. Germany - 9/2
3. Spain - 6/1
4. France - 6/1
5. Argentina - 17/2
6. Belgium - 11/1

England are currently 7th in the odds charts averaging 16/1 so if you got a spare tenner you don't know what to do with, it's a reasonable shot and you'll probably get better, with some bookies quoting 20/1 and higher.

They have got to be kidding - 160-1 is more like it.

I'd love them to win, I really would, but I'm a realist. We're just not good enough.

Any of those 6 teams could win it this year, there isn’t a stand out team that is massive favourite. I’d love Argentina to win, but I fancy Spain myself... It’ll probably be the Germans again!

I’ll be supporting England until we go out in the early knockout stages.

we could give the malvinas back to argentina if they win, it would be a nice gesture.
