WHAT a gameday. #URU v #FRA & #BRA v #BEL in quarterfinals. South America v Europe, fought on two fronts! Too bad I have to “work”; I’ll be sneak-watching #URUFRA & time-shifting #BRABEL. What does this amazing #WorldCup have in store today? #AWCHQ ⚽️

Probably long past the point of spoiling today’s games, but: both of today’s games were good, and the 2nd (#BEL v #JPN) was amazing. Just rewatched the 2nd half: no bunkering, no fouling, no crying for fouls, just attack, attack, attack. So fantastic. #AWCHQ ⚽️

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 ⚽️

“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 ⚽️
