2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

I'll start this now and blend in the pool when Superbru opens one.

News of the moment is about poor Italy. :( First time in 60 years they haven't qualified. It seems their national team players are resigning in mass, and I assume the manager will go as well. Rebuilding from square one. Pete :cheers:

It's a funny old game. :?
Republic of Ireland . . . .
After getting a good result in the first leg, a 0-0 draw in Denmark, they got stuffed 1-5 in the second leg tonight. :shock:

Smallest nation ever to qualify for the WC finals :thumb:
Qualified as group winners and from a competitive group too. :cheers:

Lest we forget, they also knocked us out of the Euro's too :oops:
They look a no frills, hard working and well organised team.
Very much doubt they'll win it but will surprise a few more teams along the way, current odds of between 125/1 and 200/1
