Sane left out of the German squad. I'm stunned by that, he's been exceptional this season.

Yeah, very surprising. He's one of City's most dangerous players.

Gotze didn't even make the provisional squad. He's fallen from grace.

This is a very low key World Cup. Even advertisers seem to have backed off it. I couldn't describe the Logo, now that I think of it....

Aye it's the politically fragile time we're living in, nobody likes Russia, no one wants to praise the games because it means praising them, and the wider context sees camps forming in europe and the US, plus brexit, fascism on the rise... It's going to be interesting

Spain sack their manager a day before the World Cup starts because he agreed to take over at Real after the tournament. Madness.

Point of principle, got to respect that. Better than the English FA always so openly desperate to retain the services of whichever foreign manager they've hired at huge expense to coach the national team, no matter what he gets up to.

Sounds like the whole team wanted him to stay though. Weird move for Madrid and Lopetegui to announce it just before the tournement, but it's not a good enough reason to sack him.

The US, Canada and Mexico selected to host the 2026 World Cup. I guarantee that's a corrupt bid. It's the first "vote" since the yanks toppled Blatter and the yanks win. You won hear anything about it in the press, the journos won't investigate, and it will be never unearthed.
