I will add my two cents to the avalanche of responses. :lol: I understand that the favorites are Brazil, France, Germany, and Spain. On a related subject, I understand that the 2026 FIFA World Cup will take place in USA. At the present time 17 US cities are candidates for the games 8 years from now.

It’s gone to North America, i.e. Mexico, Canada and the USA. Interesting.

They're simply the teams I root for. I'm not into this enough to make predictions.

The game between Spain and Portugal was a good one. They played hard and tied it up.

The name of the player who had a "hat trick" for Portugal was Ronaldo.

Watched the Iceland v. Argentina match. The Icelanders are a plucky lot (Viking blood perhaps) and they had a game plan which they executed wellI. I was pleased with the final result 1-1. =D>

Nice way to enjoy father's day - watching the world cup and the US Open golf tournament. Switching back and forth is no problem, considering both of them are rather slow, except during the times when someone makes a great play. :D
