    Never watched the South Korea game and by all accounts it was a snoozefest but how did Hwang In-Beom get on? He's a player i'd liked to have seen here.

    Decent, but since his MF partner Jeong Woo-young is quite bad with passing, building attacks was hard for HIB. The whole Uruguayan midfield also fought hard, but so did the Korean one. Forwards blocked passing lanes dutifully, and Uruguay were restricted to long passes and set pieces.

    The GK of South Korea, Kim Seung-gyu impressed with good decision making, and distribution. Maybe he could be a signing to improve us.

    Fancy this to be half decent..

    Portugal will go for it and Ghana have the pace on the counter in the likes of Kudus and Williams. Kudus excellent ball carrier at pace and Williams can stretch it in behind..

    Leao on the bench and Ronaldo up top..

    Great player but Portugal won't win it if he's shoehorned in to the side. Barely played and doesn't have the legs anymore..

    Portugal have the squad capable of going all the way. Leao should be well ahead of Ronaldo in this side and Felix through the middle. Don't care if he scores here or no..

    His all round play is garbage and has been for years.

    His goal scoring record disguises how poor a player he has become.

    Should have been 1-0. Nothing wrong with that.

    Vitinha has looked good when i've seen him for PSG as well, Palhinha been quality for Sporting and Fulham now. I'd have them in midfield before Neves and Otavio. Agree about Ronaldo as well, shouldn't have been took really as he shouldn't be playing and would only cause havoc sitting on the bench. Leao would be starting for any other team in the tournament even France would put Mbappe up front if they had Leao or Brazil would bench Vinicius.

    To leave him out is mental, * wins games on his own.

    Palhinha
    Neves Vitinha
    Silva Fernandes Leao

    or

    Palhinha
    Fernandes Vitinha
    Silva Felix Leao

    Really should be the team. I'd probably go Fernandes up front for pressing and work rate, think he'd get a lift not playing with Ronaldo as well likely knowing he'll get to take all the set pieces or penalites - I always thought he's never liked Ronaldo as he needs to do his donkey work and Ronaldo gets to take everything even though Fernandes probably thinks he's better than him at freekicks and penalties as well.

    I remember watching WC94 final as a kid, 9 years old and the first WC I watched. I loved it, didn't care Scotland weren't there. But even as a kid I couldn't get excited by that final, it was turgid stuff. No surprise with that Italy side, they weren't good to be honest and they actually came third in their group.

    That Otavio has stank the place out. Looked miles out his depth..

    Another woeful game of football. This tournament overall has been one of the worst I can remember. Utterly boring..

    So cagey in a lot of games so far. Once we get these first round of games out the way it should open up a lot more when teams can’t afford to sit waiting for a point incase it’s not enough going into R3 of the groups.

    Another awful game so far, it's criminal that Scotland never qualified when you see the amount of pish on show.

    Not if you’re the Portuguese Kris Boyd.
