In Episode #209, of the SQBT Podcast Mike and Laurent discuss
USA v Netherlands. Post-mordum. How'd we do? Were we ever really in these games? Adams never tracked back on the first goal... Dest on the second... asleep? Or tired?Spain v Morocco... not a game to write home about but... what do we make of passing, and passing and passing, and thinking that by passing you are winning? SHOOT THE G-D DAMN BALL!
England v Senegal.... Is Jude Bellingham the greatest player ever? (England Hyperbole is off the charts) The run on the second goal from Jude... was just... wow. Yaya-esque.
France v Poland... Easy. Mbappe is a difference Maker... He's goddamn petrifying... but is France Good? Is LLoris going to yak this thing? Giroud all-timer. What a legend.
How do you say "not in the face" in Portuguese? "não na cara" Portugal and Brazil SMACK down their opponents. Narratives became... Too much dancing in Brazil. Richarlison -where is this version for Spurs?
And Portugal is finding out what United already knew... Ronaldo is washed for a top team, and teams are better when he isn't in the lineup. Gonzalo Ramos Hat trick plus an assist.
Croatia vJapan... 1-1 PK. They are terrible PK's But the Modric legends continue.
Battle of Agincourt 1415? redux. France England. First world cup meeting ever. Who will be henry V and what will be the archers?
Dutch v Argentina. 1978 rematch... famously Cruyff didn't play. Kempas scored 2 and Argentina won in extra time - People got disappeared.
Morocco v Portugal and Croatia v Brazil. Look like massive mismatches... Croatia have magic in its boots and somehow finds a way at the age. Morocco's defensive stalwarts, have yet to give a goal. Their coach has got himself a job if he wants.
