I don’t see how Australia makes it out of this group.  I had France and Denmark and I’m sticking to it.

Nice set of games today

My choices too.    I agree with the games today, nice

It’s on

First game Morroco - Croatia 0 - 0

It was suppose to be a Croatian win, so ending in a tie is a huge disappointment for them for sure.  

Germany - Japan is on now and I have Germany winning, although it seems nothing is a given this WC so far.

Japan in a stunning win over Germany!

Not sure anyone expected that one!!

2 - 1 Japan over Germany

Spain is making quick work of Costa Rica and looking damn good doing it too.  4 - 0 at this point!

Canada should have it’s hands full against Belgium who are a power house.

Some good games 

Canada played really well if it were for one amazing play by Belgium to secure the only score of the game.  0 - 1

Some great games yesterday which concluded the first round of games for all countries.  To recap.

POR - GHA 3 - 2

Game of the day imo with no goals in the first half and then a 5 goal explosion in the second.

49722454-8F86-4A52-A8CE-E8AE8E5A7EE1.jpeg

BRA - SRB 2 - 1

It was close for most of the game but Serbia couldn’t hold Brazil down towards the end.  It also had the goal of the tournament, just amazing.

Game of the day today should be England - USA can’t wait to see how it goes, with England being the favorites in it, but let’s hope for an upset.

An absolute beauty of a goal! I’m not sure why USA can’t watch tapes and learn that 1-2 touches inside the 18 are a must. They also can’t comprehend that shooting outside the 18 is in fact allowed.
 

With their power and the quality of the ball ( I got to juggle one at a World Cup store in Disney Springs) it’s a huge threat to take those open shots. Instead they piddle around with the ball hoping to get a tap in. It’s maddening to watch.

Qatar - Senegal 1 - 3

Qatar will pretty much find themselves out of this WC.

Netherlends - Ecuador should be a good match, but I’m still more interested in US - England.

They should take more shots outside the 18’ but no one is really doing it right now, I think Iran has only goal from outside.  But doesn’t mean they shouldn’t try, if there is a threat it will open it up more inside as ol defenders will actually try and cover.

It makes you think though that either England is that good they beat Iran that beat Whales that tied the US?  In theory US will get pummeled, but I’m hoping for an upset.

Can't say I've watched much of this at all. 

Would it not be the strategy of the U.S. to back up the bus, as they say and play for the draw or perhaps a lucky breakaway?

A "pummeling" might not be likely in such a situation.

Pretty much how they’ve always played, which is why we’re never a factor in the WC. Brazil….offense and more offense. US makes a goal and all of a sudden all players convert to being fullbacks. Zero aggressiveness offensively. Doesn’t work.

Ditto

It might work for 1 game but overall it’s a failing strategy at all levels of the sport.

Can only defend for so long before your asked to score.

Fair enough, but probably not the recipe for a "pummeling".

Great Half 

They are definitely playing much better than they did against Whales so far.  It would go a long way for them if they can pull this one off.

    • Like @Chris BrooksI also get coached by Erik so I mention that as a back drop to this.  I'm directly stealing this from @Chris BrooksImprove driver speed to a 105 average by August 1, 2023.   I will use The SuperSpeed system as I already have it.  Goal is 105 by August 1 2023, just like Mr. Brooks.  I'm turning 52 this year. So I'm much younger than Chris. 😁 Even so, 105 average should be attainable. I average better than 102 right now. I too, will strive to get to 105.  I'm also going to include a stretching program (which will be monitored by my 8 year old daughter) to help me get there. The stretching should also help me as 2022 was the first season I can remember where I've had so many injuries.  Improve strokes gained putting, with a focus on 0–10 foot putts (I did not steal this one from @Chris Brooks, it just so happens I need the same thing.)  Current overall stokes gained are -2.5 putting, –2.56 on 0–10 feet. (I'm actually gaining strokes on 10-30 feet.) when measured vs a 5 HCP. It's actually pretty close to the same vs Scratch.  The goal is getting to even SG vs a 5HCP.  Improve my wedge play.  I would say the one constant in 2022 was that my wedge play was bad.  My stokes gained 50-100 yards against a 5HCP is -1.7 The goal again is to get to even SG vs a 5HCP.   I like what @saevel25 does with his habit goals. I would like to incorporate some of that into these goals. Especially the last 2 goals of improving short putting and improving my wedge play. As of right now I don't have a plan other than to go get a lesson on both of these areas week after next. When I return from that lesson I will update this thread and include my plan and/or my habit goals. 
    • You missed the point. A foot in the air can be tough to pinpoint on the ground. And as Daniel said, you can score with your head, so… And people have two feet. So that's two body parts. 😉 That's not true. It's really not. I've played soccer since I was 3. It's not "too much." Again, you've missed the point… You can score with your head. Or knee. Or chest. Or butt.
    • So I think… There's a chance he plays like a U.S. Senior Open, the Senior PGA, etc. That counts as the Champions Tour. There's no chance he becomes the commissioner. He's an athlete, and though he went to Stanford, he's not a lawyer or a policy guy or whatever. So I think there's very little chance of that. If he was, it'd be as a figurehead of sorts.
    • Give yourself some credit, Matt. You are thinking about this at a deeper level.  You are probably on to something. I suspect you may be able to blend both ideas together. Here's what you made me think about. I'll use this example. Let's say I set the goal to win the tournament I am playing this April. I may shoot the best score of my life each day. I may shoot a score low enough to win the tournament most years. But, somebody else may stand on his head and shoot an even lower score.  I could look at that outcome two ways. I could say "Dang, I didn't achieve my goal." or, "Because I made that goal I played the best tournament of my life."  To your point, if my goals had been: I'm going to practice the weak points in my game for 90 minutes per week. Work on practice habits that will translate to the course. And Do a better job preparing myself for every tournament I play. Then let's say I have the same outcome as above. One might argue that I would have achieved my goals and because of because of achieving my goals I played the best tournament of my life.  So, yes, I guess it could be semantics. I think however, it's something slightly different. For me, it sounds more like making sure the goals I set are actually within my control. For you, it sounds like the goals you are interested in are more life-style goals rather than mile-stone goals.  I think either can work.  Thanks for at least making me think. 👍😁👍
    • I think if he calls that a hole-in-one he is going to be pissing off the golf gods. (Yes, the golf gods are real and they are a bunch of fickle bitches.)
