IT'S FUCKIN HERE LADS AND LASSES. Imagine being in Brazil now, actually ASLEEP while the world cup's already started! Imagine.
Obviously this is an exciting time for all of us, however some rules must be laid out. Firstly, no other football chat (except maybe another, separate thread next week for league fixtures). As a precautionary measure therefore I've banned still_here to preempt any fabergé egg nonsense.
21:00 • Arena Corinthians, São Paulo • Group A
Brazil v Croatia
A potentially tricky tie for Brazil, facing a Modric-driven Croatia. However only a fool would back against the Samba boys, who will inevitably invoke the memories of Pele, Eder, Socrates and Kleberson for a famous opening victory.
No one really gives a shit about opening ceremonies in world cups like they do in the olympics do they?
