World Cup Russia 2018: Day 0

So here we are just one day before kick off and so our daily World Cup thread begins. The plan is for this thread to go up before the first game each day so it will serve to live blog (for those awake or on appropriate time zones) and also to discuss the games after they finish.

For a schedule of the games, times and broadcasters I suggest going here and you can read my overview of each team here

For the first set of games my highlights are:

Spain v Portugal (June 15)

Croatia v Nigeria (June 16)

Peru v Denmark (June 16)

Germany v Mexico (June 17)

While the most one sided could be between

France v Australia (June 16)

Argentina v Iceland (June 16)

Belgium v Panama (June 18)

Given Mexico’s current form, you could probably move them to the second set
