GOAL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Madrid are well deserved odds on favourites Liverpool have a punchers chance which is perhaps more than can be said for England - even 20/1 looks skinny - I think with it being in Russia a European team will win it possibly Belgium but probably Germany
 
Now you've got me thinking

I always support Germany when Ireland aren't in a tournament but had not considered the Belgians

Interesting fact about the German FA

Every tournament they enter their admin team books the hotel/ transport arrangements for the semi final stages before a ball is kicked

More often than not they don't require a refund

Love their attitude

Every time England lose , which happens often i console myslef by going to you tube and listen to :

At least they got there... but always cheers me up.

All countries media bum it up , to be expected , on a personal note i feel our national side is weakened by too many foreign players and managers , but then so many clubs are owned by foreign businesses , so i imagine that weakening is factored in .

This is the time of year when Irish, Scottish and Welsh bring up the subject of 1966. I can't remember the last time it was mentioned in the English press, except for memorials for members of the team who died. Screams of sour grapes for those Countries who never achieved as much.
