    So 2018 World Cup is in full effect now.....

    In Group A.... Russia & Uruguay have already advanced to the knockout stages with 1 more game to play in the group stage. Russia vs Uruguay will decide who Wins the Group & who the runner up is.

    In Group B.... Morocco is eliminated. Spain & Portugal lead the group with 4 points & +1 GD while Iran is right behind them with 3 points..... Iran plays Portugal in the final game of the group stage & Spain plays Morocco.

    Spain & Portgual will both advance with wins or draws in their final game. Iran can advance once of 2 ways.
    1. A win over Portugal
    2. A Draw with Portugal & a Spain loss to Morocco by at least 2 goals.

    I don't watch much soccer and don't pretend to know a lot about it. I watched the game this morning just because it's too hot to go outside. I thought Arg really looked like a bunch of punks. They complained about every call. They seemed to be playing much more physical to the point that they looked like a bunch of bullies. Then, of course, they rolled around on the ground like they had a limb ripped off every time anyone touched them. Glad they got eliminated.
