Seeing as our favourite Scot has downed his favourite Scotch and forgotten to start a world cup thread, I thought I'd post one. The kick off between Russia and Saudi Arabia is about to start: the host nation will be under massive pressure to perform well. The stadium looks magnificent (as does the nicely cut grass). I fancy Belgium to take the cup in a month's time. Any others? And if you really hate 'Wendy Ball' - be nice and please stay away.
