Who to root for in the World Cup?
« on: December 01, 2017, 07:50:54 pm »

World Cup draws were announced today.

Since the USA did not qualify, who are you rooting for?


Some possibilities:

England: obvious?
Iceland: smallest country to ever qualify (325,000 residents)
South Korea: to troll North Korea
Germany: they always win, so it would be nice to root for a winner
Russia: they propelled Trump to victory

1) Germany (heritage)
2) Switzerland (Parents used to live there, took a trip with my buddies after graduating from U of A.  Amazing country.
3) Iceland (hard not to root for the underdog)

Not Mexico or Panama.... Iím a big fan of watching Ronaldo and Messi play, so Portugal and Argentina. Usually I pull for the underdogs, but not here. I want to watch all the heavyweights slug it out.

My mother is of 100% German lineage. She was the first in her family to marry a full-blooded non-German man. And Pops was half German. So that makes me 75% Deutschland. The Square Heads will get World Cup #5 easily. The discipline with which they play "the beautiful game" is idyllic to watch. They are a machine and they have superior athletes who see the geometry of the game. Competely opposite of the silly 'one on one' moves that Argentina, Brazil, Italy, Portugal put on. So it's the Germans who win their second WC in a row.

Iceland is the little engine that could. Plus they won Euroís one summer so that frozen island nation actually has a shot in that tournament

I would rather watch butchy and morbidly obese women playing rugby with Beth Mowins and Bill Walton calling the game.

I understand people not liking soccer.  I don't understand people coming onto a thread that's clearly about soccer just to tell you how much they don't like it

That's the problem with soccer............both the players and some of it's fans need to grow a pair.
