86, 90 and 98, been shite since then

98 I missed most of as I was working and the club didn't have a TV in the bar at the time. I did watch the Brazil v Scotland match straight after my English Lit A-Level paper

This World Cup has been great so far, loads of goals, the big boys have not been all conquering and I love the fact that both the Senegalese and Japanese fans cleaned up the stadium after their games.

Was off work for the first two weeks of that one with Chickenpox, so got to see a lot of the group games.

I remember us all finishing work early and getting blootered watching it, gave them a good game as well. Ah Scotland, masters of the brave defeat. :)

Wasnít 1990 actually a very dull tournament and the only reason itís remembered fondly is because England did well?

Possibly for English people but for me it was the Cameroon team upsetting the odds, the Caniggia goal to beat Brazil, England doing well and the absolute drama of that penalty shoot out

I think objectively it probably wasn't the best football, but it was an incredibly evocative, exotic, event-filled tournament. Everyone had long hair and looked like Central American gun runners.

Apparently it had the fewest overall amount of goals in any world cup, but it had all sorts of other crazy shit going on with teams like Cameroon, Colombia and Argentina.

It also had a lot of genuinely world class players playing for Germany, Yugoslavia and Holland and Italy.

Obviously England getting to the semi's helped. Easily my favourite world cup ever.

haha you gotta give it to them.

Isn't this due to some interpretation of the kick off rules that the game can't start until all players are out of the opposition half, the cloudy part being that if they're all off the pitch then in theory they're out of the half so the game can restart? No one's confirmed it yet but it was thought that's why Trippier didn't celebrate one of Kane's goals and also Portugal got a player to stay on the pitch when Ronaldo scored.

I have no idea. But it was a pathetic attempt. Pickford must have been like wtf?
