Yup, saw that. Luckily for me, as I had them to win in the work score predictor thingy.

Not going well for Arabs. We’ll see if Iranians can do any better.

A 2-0 win for Morocco here would suit me for score predicting purposes, but every time I've surreptitiously checked in on the match here in the office it seems to be going Iran's way.

So far, it resembles Egypt - Uruguay.

Seems like a very consistent rule so far. If you speak Arabic . . .

DDD’s first dive of the tournament, in only the third minute of his first game, gives Portugal the lead via the resultant penalty. Some things never change.

I hate it when DDD scores three goals, but that was a fine game. Did you see how Costa checked into Pepe's Adam's apple at full speed before scoring the 1 - 1? That was one fine bit of wrestling, especially when Pepe, after being hit on the larynx grabbed his head writhing in pain, because that's what he does, regardless of where it hurts.

Somethimg for the statheads: Yesterday DDD became only the fourth player to score in four World Cup tournaments. The other three being Pelé, Uwe Seeler and Miroslav Klose.

I wasn’t watching the game and the Mem was out, I picked her up from the pub and she commented that the game was on and that “the prancing show pony had scored”.

As soon as he realised the ref wasn’t buying it and the game was carrying on, I notice, he leapt back to his feet, miraculously healed.

First use of VAR as a clear non-penalty is awarded to France. I thought this kind of technology was supposed to make sure that sort of thing didn’t happen.
