Here we go! I think I only stay on this site so I can start these threads every 4 years. The world coming together, the beautiful game, a celebration of all that is right in our world, all that is...is.... Ah, yes. That. Oh well, at least we get the clash of cultures, as the Russians take on that paragon of openness and equality, Saudi Arabia. Well, damn. Okay, let's just watch the game. Saudi Arabia is actually a few slots higher in the FIFA rankings (#67 versus #70 for Putin's boys), but I'm thinking the Russian fans pull them through. Unless of course, KSA scores first, the Ultras invade the pitch, and shit gets nuts. Second place in this group is up for grabs between the hosts, KSA, and Egypt, so it's an important game.
