I shall probably watch some matches, depending on whether I'm doing anything else. OTOH, when the real thing gets underway next summer, I shall watch as much as possible.

I've seen this advertised, I've never really watched this competition before, since its televised on ITV, I'm going to follow it, if there is nothing else on TV to watch.

I'll be watching, intriguing line-up with some different names to normal (no Brazil or Argentina for a start). Most of the German big names aren't there but I'm interested to see how the Russians are shaping up. Cameroon and New Zealand are unlikely to qualify for the World Cup.

I will try to watch this tournament, I think Mexico have a good chance of winning this but Ronaldo could make a big difference for Portugal if he plays. Hopefully there wont be any hooliganism or any other type of problems during the tournament.

Yes hoping the tournament is remembered for the right reasons. Not for hooliganism. I think Mexico or Chile could win it.

Russia will want to make sure security is high. Astonished but pleased to see Ronaldo & Sanchez starting - the former has his own new boots launched for the tournament.

Remember watching the last one in 2013 and it was on at 11pm but it was good with Japan standing out!

On paper, Russia was going to win this match quite easily, but I can't see these two teams qualifying to the semis especially with Portugal and Mexico in this group. Game wise Russia were poor, I can't see Russia getting out of their group stage next year, it really depends who else will get shoved with them.

I think Germany and Chile will qualify into the semis from Group 2.

After today's match, I really something think needs to be done about the video decision referral system. Twice in a match, One to disallow Portugal's goal and another where nothing happened when Portugal scored the second goal, I wondered what the hell is going on and nor did anyone in the crowds.

If this is going to work, please have the referee speak about the supposed infringement to the video assistant referee. And hear the outcome please.

the video decision referral system is a pain in the butt, it just stops the flow of the game.

Good match, that Hernandez header was brilliant, the second half really gave the game more justice.

This.


Even though it seems to be effective I hope they don't include in next year's World Cup, either that or they should find a more time efficient way of carrying out these video referral decisions.

I think the problem is more that no one seems to have any idea what is happening.

Maybe it could be shown what the video assistant referees are watching? A bit like cricket

I guess it's all just a trial at the moment, so all of the issues can be corrected if video technology is ever brought in.

Amazed the video referee didn't think anyone in the brawl should have been sent off:

I've missed a lot of this tournament so far, it's hard to follow it because the live matches are not shown late enough in the evening and there is no highlights programme. I will watch the live matches on Sunday though.
