    БОЛЬШАЯ ПОБЕДА ОСТАЕТСЯ, ЧТО БЕРЕГАЕТ!

    Brothers! Sisters! Comrades! It has arrived! The great soccer tournament of world passion and victory for the people of great Mother Russia 2018 World Cup by FIFA!

    32 of the worlds strongest teams of men battle to survive extreme test of strength and fortitude and unwavering fertility!

    Предупреждение! Теперь мы узнаем, какая нация сильна и какая нация идет с великим позором! Только те, у кого большая сила, позволили!



    Ahem, now I've got you here, allow me to give y'all the skinny in another instalment of the greatest tournament. 

    So, what's happening?
    It's the 21st Fifa World Cup being hosted in Russia from 14th June to 15th July 2018. It's a bit of a big deal.

    Why's that then?
    Well, the winners can go down in their countries history. The best players play here, for the biggest prize, with billions tuning in whole nations come to a standstill. The world cup can make or break a players career. All the greats have had a world cup where they've shined. Pele, Maradona, Zidane, Ronaldo etc. It's the pinnacle of football, or a month of hell. Got it?

    Okay then. Who's playing? What are the rules?
    I'm GLAD YOU'VE ASKED. 32 teams have qualified. They are split into eight groups of four, each playing one another once over the course of the first two weeks of the tounament. The top two teams from each group then qualify for the knockout rounds, where one match decides who progresses. No away goals. Extra-time and penalties in the knockout rounds if required.

    Who, though?
    Here we go:

    Group A
    Russia
    Saudi Arabia
    Egypt
    Uruguay

    Group B
    Portugal
    Spain
    Morocco
    Iran

    Group C
    France
    Australia
    Peru
    Denmark

    Group D
    Argentina
    Croatia
    Iceland
    Nigeria

    Group E
    Brazil
    Switzerland
    Costa Rica
    Serbia

    Group F
    Germany
    Mexico
    Sweden
    South Korea

    Group G
    Belgium
    Tunisia
    Panama
    England

    Group H
    Poland
    Senegal
    Columbia
    Japan

    Fun, huh?

    Yeah, I suppose... Who's the favourites?
    Well, we have reigning champions Germany in the mix as ever. Then there's Brazil, Spain, Argentina always in the mix. Dark horses are Peru, Belgium, England.

    Wait... Where's Italy?! Aren't they usually here?
    Nah they fucked it.



    Right okay, I think I get it now. So where are the matches being played? Isn't Russia.... like.... Old as fuck?
    Well, no. Yes it's a large country but COMRADE PUTIN has went to great expense to see this pass off in the most grand of stadia. Even further, we have sent SPECIAL BADGER AGENT OF KGB G.man to investigate and report back on great stadia strength and vitality. Behold:

    Wow.. That's impressive. I think I wanna watch. How do I do it?
    Well, I can only answer for our comrades in the United Kingdom. Here's a handy link that gives you who' showing what game and on what day. But of course, this is the age of social media so you'll be able to find stuff on Facebook, Twitter, and the like through official channels. It'll be very hard to miss anything whilst it's going on.

    The world's greatest tournament surely needs the worlds greatest football, right?
    Correct.
    Here is the Adidas Telstar...

    Was just about to ban you for being a spambot due to the thread title
  • the fuck is this
  • With all that, depressing news that Bendtner hasn't made the Danish squad due to injury.

    Golden Boot is up for grabs, lads.
    Let's go exploring....

    I can't wait for all those goals that will be shooted. I think Wales can go one better than the Euros and win this damn thing.

    The ball is quite brilliant.
  • Ball is full of win because for once I'll actually be able to see it on a green pitch.
    Come with g if you want to live...
  • OP was all going so well until it failed to mention France as one of the favourites.

    Rip it up and start again.
    Spoiler:
  • Nice work Gav. No Putin on a horse though, suppose the fishing pic makes up for it. Thumbs up and a nod of appreciation from me.

    Yep. Apologies. Was against the clock.

    Following two posts will be for squads/current day schedule/tables and my fave part... KIT WATCH.

    I wouldn't worry. Forum auto-resizes images anyhoo.
    Come with g if you want to live...
  • Now thats an OP.
  • Unpopular opinion: Nigeria away is a much nicer kit.
    Let's go exploring....
  • I preferred the other thread, tbh.  I could understand the thread title and it had butter.
  • Do we need a bit about VAR in the OP for those folk that don't usually watch hoofbutt?
  • More added tomorrow afternoon.

    In the meantime...

    NO POOFTERS!





    Seriously though, fuck Russia.
  • Wow! Great first post. Puts to shame my initial post for Brazil 2014...
    I win... in the most minor way possible.
  • Someone should do a sweepstake. They could draw it live on Twitch! Who’s in?

    Great OP though - although this is us first WC that I can remember that I don’t actually give a toss about.
