World Cup Russia 2018: Day 5, Los Canaleros Are Just Happy to Be Here

I’m still in shock from yesterday, México won, I’m astonished. The German team didn’t look that well and México even wasted some really good chances. In the other matches, Costa Rica didn’t play well either and fell to an incredible shot, whil eBrazil continued the trend of the favorites being underwhelming by drawing against the Swiss. This World Cup is completely open

Now Day 5 has one game that looks really close and two really one sided, at least in theory. I don’t really know anymore

Group F: Sweden v South Korea

The second half of the group of death comes up to stage. A Zlatan-less Sweden will try to use their strong defense and tactics to defeat a South Korea led by Spurs’ star Son Heung-min. Whoever loses this game will most likely have sealed their fate on this group.

Group G: Belgium v Panamá

It’s last call for Belgium’s golden generation, the perennial underachievers have a really easy first match against World Cup newcomers Panamá. Los Canaleros will be completely outclassed, but on the other hand they have nothing to lose and that can be dangerous

Group G: Tunisia v England

Tunisia hasn’t been in a World Cup since 2006 and they don’t have the greatest record in the ones they’ve been to. To make matters worse, their best player, Youssef Msakni, went down with an injury. So even if England are at their most, well, England they can’t really mess this up. It also helps that they didn’t take Joe Hart
