    I wonder if Bale would still stay in Spain rather than come to England. At least either way he'd have more chance of getting to go to a world cup than persevering with Wales. Surely we want to see the best players at such a tournament, it's discrimination if they're born in a country with a crap national team.

    Your logic is based on finance, not on national teams.
    Also, if you went down that route with other sports - athletics etc, that would make quite a difference. Or how about F1 - most of the drivers live in Monaco or Switzerland. Same with tennis.
    Very few of them actually live in the UK.
    I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

    England will win, stop talking your country down
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    I drew Spain in the work sweep stake and was quietly confident until this happened:

    That would be my guess too. They'll go out pretty much as soon as they come up against 'top 10' opposition.

    I wouldn't want to be a Saudi defender right now, I dread to think what penalty awaits for the sort of showing they're putting on.

    Depends if Saudi are doing any deals with Russia. The Saudi King/Prince watching the match alongside Putin didn't seem too bothered.

    No host has ever lost their opening game, according to a pundit before the match. Saudi strikers would have had more to fear if the result had gone the other way.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    As my Scottish neighbour said in the pub last night, even England would have beaten the Saudis, at least 1-0.
