So... In what was the first couple of games for the R16 of this World Cup, we got to watch the Netherlands vs USA and Argentina vs Australia. We got what we pretty-much expected. Argentina beat Australia 2 goals to 1, with Messi scoring. Also, the Netherlands outgunned the USANMT 3 goals to 1. I think this USA team needs a few additions and there’re gonna be a pretty tough team to beat.
- France vs Poland
- England vs Senegal
While there’s always a surprise around the corner, the two teams widely regarded as the favorites here are obviously France and England. Which one will you be catching today? Will you watch both? Let us know and have fun commenting as the games play out.
