anyone here following the world cup?

No.

But then again, I am not that much into football to begin with, so I am not the kind of person who's oppinion about the world cup matters.

 

Then again, again, considering that the main source of the Quatari legislation is the Sharia law... well.. let's say that my view of the world is not ... compatible enough to consider their justice system just.

My friend just took a trip to Italy (without me 😭) and brought me back a beanie that's Italian flag colors that says 🇮🇹Italia🇮🇹 In one shift at work so many people told me Italy is getting their asses handed to them in the World Cup lol. But I don't follow sports so I have no idea if that's true or not.

It's not the same without you! But don't be greedy. You are European champions. Congratulations (said through gritted teeth, as an England fan).

Italian American you say 👀

Come stai oggi? 💚🤍

Lol I don't speak a lick of Italian (I do want to learn it sometime, as it is a beautiful language), although it was my Dad’s first language. Did get to go to Italy for a little over a week which was a magical experience especially on my birthday, but the only Italian I knew was how to order gelato. An important skill if you ask me, tbh 😉

On and off, IMO it's the worst 'football' sport by far so I struggle to maintain interest

It's a shame it was moved to winter because it took away coverage from the rugby league world cup which got held in England this autumn

I am not a massive football fan but I do tend to follow my national team - England - in major tournaments as and when I can. Have been working for the majority of all the matches England have played so far though but have caught the last 30 mins or so on the radio on the way home.

Although I couldn't actually see it, England's performance against the USA based upon what I was hearing was atrocious, with the USA bombarding the England penalty area with corner after corner. We deserved to lose that one and were lucky to get away with a 0-0 draw. Fortunately, we played well enough for long enough to win the other two matches and head the group. So next up Senegal in the last 16.

Disappointed for Wales but they havent played well and were out of their depth. England is my team though so am glad we beat them 3-0. 

After their failure to secure a deserved win against England, am glad to see the USA scrape through to the last 16. They deserved that but have tough opposition in the form of the Netherlands. England's match against Senegal will be no walk in the park either and will be a tough game to win.
