    It will be hard for us to make it out of the group stage I believe.

    Still can't believe the US didn't make it.  And no Italy, Chile and Netherlands.  A lot of good teams not there, but it should still be a great tournament.  Belgium is my pick to win...

    I've heard Belgium being tipped as a winner quite a bit.

    This will be a great tournament.  Some teams worth watching. Egypt have some good players and heart.
     But Brazil  France Spain argentina and Belgium  are very great teams. I love the first 2 weeks. 3 games a day . But England play the same night I'm at pj  I know where I'd rather be :)

    I cant believe there is no stand alone video game created for this. I always loved it, the whole qualification process and all.

    Yep.  Once the WC starts it's really going to set in how fucking awful it is that the US isn't there.  But that's a different convo for another thread.  I'm mostly of Irish descent and they didn't qualify either so I really have no one to root for.  One of my really good friends was born in Poland and is a huge soccer fan so I may jump on the bandwagon with him....mostly just so I can go out drinking and watch the games.

    Yes, but from what I have read, it falls well short of the previous stand alone releases that give the full qualifying experience, hundreds of nations' teams, WC atmosphere and interface, etc.  Thats disappointing.

    Note to all media attending the Russia World Cup ... book hotel rooms on first floor only.  Do not criticize mr Putin.  Avoid balconies that may become “slippery”

    also avoid going into dark wooded areas where team supported death matches occur.

    Well, my homeland (Wales) never qualify so I'll be throwing my support behind the green and gold of my adopted country. I'm hoping for one more piece of Tim Cahill magic in his final tournament :)

    I think Belgium or Argentina will win it.

    Wales will win the 2022 World Cup. You laughed at it here first folks...

    It's a shame that a player as good as Bale may never play in a World Cup.  Although that run Wales had in Euro 2016 was pretty great...

    Gonna be weird not having a rooting interest, but looking forward to the tournament.  Took this quiz and got Spain.  Also a big fan of Spain, the food, the culture, the wine, so F it, rolling with Spain
