Italy didn’t make it to Russia. I wasn’t keeping track like previous tournaments.
I couldn’t remember which country is in which group. I can’t remember which countries are playing on which day, and after I watched the match, I forget most of the match.
Nevertheless, this is an enjoyable World Cup. Love the passion of the footballers who care.
Some of the match I remember:
Mexico 1 Germany 0
S Korea 2 Germany 0 (2 goals in the last few minutes that sent Germany home and Mexico to 2nd round)
Germany 2 Sweden 1 <Sweden would have won if they do not park the bus in the second half>
France 4 Argentina 3 (Argentina was leading 2-1 after halftime, but the better team won. The spinning goal from Pavard was like from Shaolin Soccer).
Uruguay 2 Portugal 1 ( Cavani !! He reminded me of Canniggia)
England 6 Panama 1 (the joyous celebration of Panama for their 1st World Cup goal; also Harry Kane)
France 2 Australia <1st time penalty given via VAR, 2nd goal was via goal line technology>
