    Which of the remaining teams would you prefer to win?

    Not who are the favourites to win, but who'd you like to do it.

    I'd like to see Belgium go all the way, although I don't believe they can overcome both Brazil and then France.

    I'd like to see Uruguay or Croatia win it, because they're both smaller than Scotland. Preferably Uruguay and preferably beating England in the final, because in that case it would be an absolute certainty that Godin and Suarez would do something to produce enough English seethe to power the country for decades.

    France first and foremost, since I picked them in my office pool. :yo::laugh:
    Next would be England, then Belgium
    Followed by:
    Croatia
    Sweden
    Russia (for the lol's)
    Uruguay
    Brazil - if we think Neymar is an embarrassment now, imagine how much he'd ramp it up in the finals. :help:

    I waffled between Brazil or France. Whichever puts more pressure on Jogi to resign.

    1) Uruguay because their forward duo is brilliant and the team behind them is really hard working and likeable. Their light blue jerseys are also nice.

    2) Croatia because they have nice midfielders who doesn’t handle the ball like a hand grenade.

    3) Russia because of the laughs. The team is really boring and mediocre though. But the laughs...

    4) Sweden because it would make Zlatan look dumb and irrelevant.

    Sweden. One of few teams without diving drama queens (not saying a Swede will never dive or do something stupid, but certainly less than most teams not being Japan (Zlatan not being there)).

    Sweden because there small size gives me hope that one day Canada can be some what decent. I kind of like the idea of England winning but my heritage is also that of Scotland which I side with more so its hard to cheer for the enemy England. Plus I cannot get over all those darn Spurs players. If Southgate started Welbeck over Kane he would get my support in an instant ;)

    Also would like to see Russia win just for the celebrations across the country and within the stadium.

    France obviously.
    Though I don't think we will. I think we might be ousted friday because we don't like defensive matchups.
    If we go through, I expect a win against Brazil/Belgium. But depending on the finalist, we might struggle again.

    Sweden. Granqvist wins player of the tournament. Which means that the player of the tournament in the 2018 FIFA WC will be playing for my local second division team in Sweden.

    1. England: They are my favorite team
    2. France: I picked them to win before the World Cup started
    3. Chaos: Whichever potential finalists produces the most entertaining and exciting result

    Historically my family comes from all over the British Isles so I have no real favoritism towards Scotland, Ireland, England, or Wales. England is usually the best and they are the only nation that actually made the World Cup so I generally cheer for England. Plus my girlfriend is from England and I've been there on vacation. There are probably more Ukrainian families in Selkirk than Scottish to be fair.

    Anyone but england. I don't want to listen to 4 years of gloating. They are fortunate to get the easiest matchups. Please please god help Sweden crush them.

    I think France will win it, but I voted Croatia. I like the country and people. I would also be quite fine with Russia winning in principle, but I think that may open a can of worms - given that their team just isn't all that good.
