And the disgusting robbery against Germany.

Revenge was sweet in '98, tho.

 

Didn't Croatia loose their last groupgame "on purpose" so they could face Germany or something like that?

Didn't lose on purpose, but did rest most of the starters.

Just a tad offside there..

Feel this is gonna be a farce if officials scared to flag due to var. that would have been pulled back it a goal but the next phase of play could have resulted in a goal to, at which point it’s not pulled back

Clattenburg said they've been specifically told not to flag if they think it's marginal.

Smooth move. No need trying to avoid the Germans like the other teams normally do :D

This has all the makings of a 0-0.

13/2 for the 0-0 on bet365, all over that.

Again, this is going to be 0-0, there is no situation where either of these teams score a goal.

My World Cup predictions are as good as ever.

Dzagoev out injured already :(

 

Cheryshev coming on as substitute

Not a bad player to have to bring on, i think Russia's hopes depend on Golovin and the amount of money they are bunging the officials.

bit of a shame if Dzagoev's tournament is over, looked a great player at Euro 2012 :(

Unfortunately he never was that good after it, repeating injuries were probably the main reason :(

Anyone know why Georgy Schennikov didn't get called up? Injured? Not good enough? 

He's injured but hasn't played for national team since 2016 so anyway was unlikely to be called up.

Yeah, that 2026 WC will have a lot of unwatchable games.

This is pretty bad. It's the opening game so everyone's still hyped, but in a week noone will be interested in games of this caliber.
