There is a LOT happening in Russia and very little discussion about it on VS. I think this might be because there is not a ‘World Cup Specific’ article for posters to find easily. Yes? No?

I seem to have watched more games in the group stage this year than any other year since 1966. And there have been so many good performances … many by teams I would least expect it from.

England and our boys are doing well and it’s going to be interesting to see if they can keep it up when the opposition gets stronger. Belgium and our other boys are doing just as well. As they are both in the same group and meet in their next game the adrenaline of all of us should be flowing with a vengeance.

Russia has survived the group stage which is great for the home country and the competition in general. Some of the ‘big guns’ still have some work to do and could provide some WC shocks.

Harry has both the footballing gods and lady luck on his side, as demonstrated by his third goal against Panama. Everything is falling into place so well for him that they may as well give him the Golden boot now! I think it was Real deal who suggested that the test of Kane’s maturity will be on show if he gets a penalty …. in which case Harry seems to be the most mature person in Russia.

Sonny boy scored a wonder goal but looks like he’ll be coming home after his next game. He might well be sitting next to Sanchez on the return journey.

There is a lot to talk about and discuss … so come on VS, share your thoughts on the World Cup and the Spurs boys who are a part of it.
