FIFA suggested to the committee that Denver's stadium is best suited for soccer and should host the final. Good luck with that, it's going to be at Metlife or the Rose Bowl

Us: Announcing concession stands for a stadium that won't be ready matchday 1

I'm a pussy so I picked Brazil over Spain in the final of my bracket, like everyone else. I do have Senegal beating England and Croatia beating France in the round of 16 as my upsets so I fully expect neither of those teams to get out of the group.

I actually have a rooting interest in this competition so my bracket is basically 'It's Coming Home 2: Electric Boogaloo' - Portugal over England in the final

It will be a big mistake if the 48 team WC does not allow *everyone* into the knockout stage.

Too much opportunity to fix that 3rd match or have teams not put much into it by playing for a draw.

Group winners get a bye to the Rd of 32 Proper and the 2nd and 3rds have a preliminary Rd of 32.

Each nation plays a minimum of 3 matches like now.

Won't happen but I can dream.

USA is the only one guaranteed a spot so far. Mexico and Canada are both appealing for free spots as well and it sounds like they’ll both get them

To be completely fair to FIFA there was no way I was ever going to waste my time watching Uruguay v Saudi before today whereas now I definitely need to see it just in case it's a multiple touchdown game
