Anyone know what UK times the games will kick off?

Variously scattered between 11am and 8pm I think.

So it's Königsberg, Nizhny Novgorod and Stalingrad for England.

The Germans already failed once on that route.


I love a good enclave.

There's a crazy Belgian/Dutch one, and also a Spanish one surrounded by France.

Panini can shove their stickers up their greedy arses at 80p per pack

Think I'll give it a miss this year. What do you reckon..?

Nainggolan left out. Baffling

Italia '90 was brilliant. So many memories of that one.

Pavarotti, Schilachi
Roger Milla
Cameroon beating Argentina in the opening game
Higuita the crazy Colombian goalkeeper who used to dribble out of his box, and Carlos Valderama.
Insanely talented Yugoslavian side.
Some absolute legends playing for Holland and Germany.

94 and 98 were decent too. Favoutite memories of those were the Romanian and Bulgarian sides.
The Nigerian 94 side with Yekini, Amokachi, Okacha and a few others were great to watch.

that Yugoslavia team had some amazing players, myfave team of all time,  the year after,, i got to saw the best club team play.. that was the Red Star Belgrade team that played against Marseille,shame that match went to penalties.. but they still won :D but it was basically the Yugoslavia team.. shame nato decided to kill the country.


The attacking talent in that side was ridiculous.

Stojkovic
Prosinecki
Pancev
Saveicevic
Boksic
Suker

they also had Mihajlovic  who hit amazing freekicks,
Savic, and the combative Jugovic
Prosinecki was amazing, Pancev was a great striker... that was a proper team, they all played for each other.

I was talking about the Yugoslavian team, but yeah the Red Star side had most of them.

Theo Walcott has never played a single minute at a world cup.

your correct,,, by competative tie i meant, something other than a friendly.. he scored a hattrick in a world cup qualifying match.


It wasn't aimed at you, or anyone in fact.

Just a little surprising stat.

Crazy to think he went as a 17 year old, although didn't actually play.

Not picked for 2010 and injured for 2014.

I broke my arm that summer and my mum and dad got me the England kit, I was Gary Lineker, loved that World Cup

I broke my same arm during the 86 and 90 world cups.

Was much more careful when 94 came around.

Could they not have got someone a bit more current than Robbie Williams belting out his handful of hits from ten, fifteen years ago?


10 to 15 years behind is considered modern in that part of the world :)

Great free kick but the theatrics to earn it were pathetic.
