Spain, France, England look 'on it'.

Argentina, Germany - oh dear.

Any truth that slow starters grow into it and feature towards the end, and vice versa?

Let's have a look at Brasil, Belgium

Spain and France the only teams I’ve been impressed by so far.

Spain are looking ominous but they’re a young team, I’m unsure how they’ll cope against better drilled and/or dirtier teams.

France are scary going forward but suspect defending. Australia tore them open more than once.

I think Belgium are over the hill. Brazil will be the important one tomorrow.

They wouldn't be that open against a good side, I don't think. Teams take more risks when they don't respect the oppositions attack, against a good side they'd tighten up.

Similarly England only conceded so many chances vs Iran cause we went 4 at the back and played an open game

Teams will adapt their game based on opposition, England will be far more cautious once out of the groups I think.

Alright Mr Shearer

I expect Southgate will switch to a back 5. Probably against Wales

He’ll want to get Walker game time if at all possible as he’ll want his pace. Especially if up against Mbappe. Mount will be binned to accommodate I expect

Bellingham walks into every team in the world.

He will be the difference this tournament.
The living always think that gold can make them happy.

Let's have a look at Brasil, Belgium

It's one game. Yes, every game is important in tournament football, but remember that Argentina only won one of their group games (and lost their first) in 1990 and got to the final

I could do Spit the Dog when I was 4.

Can you finish strong and fulfil your dreams though? Clifford, Hector, Beau?

I think Costa Rica might win this comp you know.

France can't defend.

To be fair, we haven't seen much evidence to suggest England can defend either.
