All nice and ready like

(BM goes facepalm:)

Seems in the wider K family sweepstake Mrs K and I have drawn Belgium and a little team called England   rubschin:

For those that want to organise a sweepstake where they work, play or whatever then this is apparently a good tool https://www.sweepstakegenerator.com/free-russia-world-cup-2018-sweepstake (https://www.sweepstakegenerator.com/free-russia-world-cup-2018-sweepstake)

Only one match so far worth watching, that was the Portugal v Spain game.

Coming up shortly is Germany v Mexico. I shall be cheering on Mexico but with little hope for them.

I feel like I've aged a hundred years.  Weird game though, once Colombia stopped fouling so often they were the better team but they should have been down to 9 men by half time so it's the right result.

Worryingly we don't have the best of records against Sweden but the form book doesn't get to kick the ball

Diego 'Hand of God' Maradona, has stated that the results of the England v Columbia leg of the World Cup was stolen by us and we didn't deserve it.
