More goals, more drama, and there’s plenty more to come so let’s start with England.
England starts their World Cup with a bang after a late winner against Tunisia so kick off the group stage. Let’s be honest with each other here because in the first 20 minutes, it was the best England have looked in the world cup since 1998 as there were relentlessly attacking Tunisia and piling all the pressure on them and it paid off. Young corner goes and John Stones was denied by a world class save from the keeper but then the captain Harry Kane makes it 1-0 and the keeper had to come off with injury and I do feel sorry for him. But then the referee made a shocking error as the Tunisian player ran into Kyle Walker’s arm and hit the deck and a penalty was giving.
Tunisia made it 1-1 and it was sickening. Second half starts and we was still trying to break down their defence as they were playing for the point and they was actually cheating which is so disrespectful. But then in the last dying minutes, Trippier crosses the ball in Maguire heads it on and this was school boy defending from Tunisia as Harry Kane was unmarked and he heads it in, it’s 2-1 and the fans went absolutely ballistic.
Now to the rivals of England, Germany what a brilliant start to the World Cup.
All I can say is Germany’s full backs were terrible, Lozano scored a brilliant goal and Germany had chance after chance and it won’t go in and it was embarrassing for Germany. Let’s not forget they are the reigning world champions and Mexico fond it easy against them. It was like Spain when they won the World Cup in 2010 but 4 years later in Brazil, Netherlands found it easy against Spain and they won 5-1. I do hope Germany get their act together because of they don’t win their next game it will be deep trouble for them as they are always tournament favourites and they always do well but is Joachim Low time at Germany over if Germany get knocked out, we will see.
Over to the team I support as it’s country I’m from which is Serbia
Serbia started their world cup with a brilliant 1-0 win over Costa Rica. It’s a good start to us as we have been tipped to finish 2nd and we have some quality players and we have the quality to beat teams. First half was even as both teams had really good chances but nothing happend. But in the second half Serbia came out stronger and was creating beter chances to score. Mitrovic is being a nightmare for defenders as he was brought down for the free kick and step up Aleksandar Kolarov from 25 yards, curls in a beautiful free kick pass Navas and it was 1-0 to Serbia. A good start for Serbia and we need to play well against Switzerland after they drew 1-1 to favourites Brazil.
Now we are going to a nation that won and they could be the dark horses which is Belguim.
Belguim started really well against the debut team that is Panama and had a brillaint first half in which they held Belguim 0-0. But the second half Panama tried but Belguim had more quality as it was proven when Napoli striker Mertens scored one of the goals of the tournament with an amazing volley and then Lukaku scored a brace and it was a comfortable win for them as I predicted them to do well in this tournament. As for Panama I knew they will be the whipping boys but they deserve so much credit for making it to the World Cup.
