Brazil path is hard. The other path to final is relatively easy. And it's up to Eng and croatia to up their game significantly if they want to succeed and snif at a championsion. Will not get such a big opportunity here.

On Brazils side.. every one of them has a chance. Good luck. Great games ahead.

And I can't stretch this enough. I f&)**&)8 LOVE WORLD CUP!!!

Good Luck brazil.

I would be happy with this outcome. I think Uruguay is a pretty good team this year. France should have hard time though they got some speed and muscle power. France is a big name but it is not zidanes France when he was a player .

England has to ante up there game significantly .. they have had very easy path so far .. their game looks very lackluster .. but I will be supporting them.

Brazil vs England final will be nice :)

Things to notice ... u can occasionally catch Bangladeshi flag in big games ... on tv. But in stadium it's always there .. these guys from Bangladeshi football federation get great premium/VIP seats .. and they take big bd flag like boss . In tv u have to be attentive to catch some glimpse :flag:

To be honest I find it annoying when you are carrying a flag in the stadium whose team is not playing or who were never represented in wc. Let me elaborate...


There are few Bangladeshi/Indian/African students in moscow. Some of them came to fan zone with their own flag. And russians there are obviosuly taking pics with fans of different countries.. and i saw some bangladeshi and Indian kids taking pics with them with their respective flag. that is some what of a mockery/fraudulent to me. But whatever they are having fun i suppose.

OCcasionally I saw Indian kids in stadium posing with their own flag (pretty big too) to for obviously instagram and waving.. again likely local students. And annoying as hell.

But then occasionally you will see some family or small group of Bangladeshis from Bangladesh being in stadium. Like that Federation ppl. I can appreciate their flag presence.. they are not really showy.. waving or anything.. just putting the flag in front..like i saw in the brazil game and i think if tv catches it... there will be lot of cheering ppl in Bangladesh and I think that is the reason a foreign flag that's not reprsented in the tournament should still be ther just because that country has such a massive following... it's pertinent to Brazil and argentina or the finals..

iDumb
July 5, 2018, 01:59 PM
Loved the atmosphere.



I regret not going to previous WCs. I dont' think if I am healthy i will try not to miss future tournaments.

It's also better to be young and be there.. Fun level is different depends on age..

I am a little bumped that 8 years later it's in US. Too much diversity here. I rather watch it in a homogenous country so you can change the color of the country for a month. Russia fits.

What's a local American when the game is at metlife?? Takes away a lot of fun i think. And then u will have ppl here supporting their country of origin instead of USA when usa will play. that wont' be nice.

No it's not hand of God. I asked this question to a colombian collegue of mine. He was mentioning how he will be happy if Argentina exits. He says as a South American he can't support argentina.

Apparently the reason for that is the people of Argentina. Argentine people attitude apparantly has this "God complex" where they think they are best at everything and rest is beneath them.

From my experience this world cup, not too sure about this God complex but without a doubt Brazilians are much much friendlier. Similar to Bangladeshis.

I was in a food cart line when a brazilian young couple started talking to me, initially asked me something in portugese. I was wearing a Brazil jersey. And he pretty much carried on the convo and seemed quiet happy that I was wearing a Brazil jersey over anything else. Also met a doctor couple in stadium very briefly who also thanked me for supporting Brazil.

After loss of Argentina, in a cafe, a group of argentine ordering food. and I leaned over and asked one of them what happened? Probably lack of english prevented him but still doesn't seem like he was keen on even trying saying "everyting good" though i was wearing an argentine jersey. If I see a non Bangladeshi wearing a BD cricket jersey and if they ask me something even if I don't understand, you bet I will show some interest to have a convo for atleast few mins....

Might be isolated events, or my colombian collegues' given reason bias for my thinking. But this is what I gather.

iDumb
July 5, 2018, 05:26 PM
i just searched google "why south americans hate Argentina". The first result a washington post article from 1982

https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/opinions/1982/06/06/the-latins-love-to-hate-the-argentines/a56baf09-dfc5-4c1f-a072-6698dec458b3/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.572cedf8980c

read the first paragraph and stopped.. and that's enough for me.


ASK ANY ARGENTINE why his countrymen are generally disliked, resented and ridiculed throughout Latin America, and without hesitation, he will invariably reply: They are envious, envious that we Argentines are a nation of pure, white European stock, that we live and prosper in a rich country, that we are cultured and literate, that we are not racial mongrels mixed with Indians and blacks.

the more you know... all of a sudden Argentina doesn't seem all that of a great country to support. LOL. But from pure football pov, go MESSI!!

If you go to football/soccer reddit threads Argentina is pretty despised, especially by the other Latin nations.

From what I gathered seeing other Brazilian posters, Argentinians seem to be quite racist since they are 'white' skinned and mock the darker looking Brazilians. Maradona's antics and cheating behaviour back in the day also plays a part as to why others don't like Argentina (ex. they put tranquilizer in the drinks of one of the Brazilian players during a WC QF match)

iDumb
July 5, 2018, 05:32 PM
Another story, in a fan fest I wore the Argentine jersey. Group of Brazilians came up to me. And looking at me obviously knew I wasn't Argentine. Asked why I was wearing that jersey. I told him i like messi and having a Bangladeshi background there is a big Argentine support I grew up watching sorroudning me so naturally I am more inclined..

He directly told me.. "if you give me your jersey , I will spit and burn it right now.".

the hatred is strong and real.

I remember Sohel Bhai, one of the seniors saying something about his experience with Argentines that would support the above views....


Though there are subplots


1) Within Argentina, Maradona is not liked by a large group who think he presents a crass image of Argentines to the world, as they are supposed to be more refined (though any youtube video of their fans in tournaments shows refined is not a word to be used in their football)


2) In Brazil there is supposedly a huge division between Euro Brazilians (of whom there are very few in the current team except maybe the GK), and darker ones. But still race relations are supposedly better than in a similarly multi cultural nation like South Africa

Lokaku easily. This giant has been in tremendous form. Even against Japan its him who left the ball for the incoming player to score the final goal at 94th minute.

Unfortunately first way own goal shocked them in a sudden way. It ruined a lot of the spirit. 2nd half was great. Oh well always next time. Most of the players will be even better come next world cup and at better prime age, Neymar by then probably leading best player ranking.
