From a preview magazine published before a ball was even kicked at this #WorldCup… no pressure, Messi. #AWCHQ #FRAARG ⚽️

And that’s it for me from Armadillo World (Cup) Headquarters! I may still micro-blog with #AWCHQ but I won’t try to avoid spoilers & I won’t continue rating the games. Here are more details why, if you’re interested; ¡adiós! /cg

Well, that ended things with a whimper. Disappointing. If you skip them all today, you’re honestly not missing that much, but if you want to put one on, make it Senegal v Colombia, I guess. #AWCHQ #ENGBEL #PANTUN ⚽️

When I saw the lineups for #ENGBEL I thought: okay, B teams, but maybe they’ll come out & play, and it can still be a fun game… Nope, not so far it ain’t. Think I’ll put #PANTUN on my main screen for the second half. #AWCHQ ⚽️

The Guardian’s Marina Hyde on #ENG’s unknown unknowns:

“I don’t know what is happening, but… I think I like it? I certainly like the fact that most England fans’ joy cheerfully acknowledges that it’ll probably go tits-up any minute”

And here come the final two games of the 2018 #WorldCup group stage. Between that performance in #JPN v #POL and all this talk of #ENGBEL being a fight for second, I’m pretty worried these games will be boring. Let’s see! #AWCHQ #PANTUN ⚽️

Well, that ended… interestingly. Today’s games had a few moments of excitement, but also a lot of group-stage scenario calculations. Senegal v Colombia is okay, but if you missed both of these you didn’t miss much, in my opinion.

“It’s not been as entertaining as we thought it might be. But, we still have another half to go!” – JP Dellacamera on Fox, about #SENCOL (may as well be for #JPNPOL, too). #AWCHQ ⚽️

It ends… today. The group stage of the 2018 #WorldCup, that is. We start in Group H, with Japan vs Poland & Senegal vs Colombia. #POL is already eliminated, but the other 3 could all possibly advance! What kind of games are we in store for today? #AWCHQ #JPNPOL #SENCOL ⚽️

…and now I’m caught up with the present! Those later games weren’t bad; credit to #CRC for giving #SUI a tough game. Belatedly, my pick if I have to make one for today’s games is: Korea vs. Germany. Tomorrow: we finish the group stage! #AWCHQ #SERBRA #SUICRC ⚽️
