  1. I can’t wait to watch the World Cup! I’m a massive football supporter and I’ll be rooting for England. That said, I think that Germany have a strong chance of winning as the tournament will be taking place in Europe so the climate may suit them. Additionally, they have a very strong team and have won a lot of World Cup tournaments in the past.

    My first memory of the World Cup was in 1994. It took place in the USA and I remember that England didn’t qualify for that tournament. I recall supporting Ireland instead on that occasion! They played some really exciting, exhilarating football!

    I’m going to enjoy Russia 2018 because I’ll be watching lots of games with my dad. I’ll be watching the games that Ronaldo plays for Portugal with great interest as I feel he is one of the best ever players. I have learned that he does a lot of charity work in his spare time too so I respect him a lot for the work he does outside of football.

    Share your experiences on here everyone! I’d love to know more about what you think and feel! Mr Dawood 🙂

  2. Football for me is about bringing people together: brothers, friends, fathers and daughters, fathers and sons. The whole family! Families can talk, laugh and get passionate about football.

    My children love the game; namely, they like playing it. But they also enjoy watching it, discussing it and analysing it. Seeing my boys especially, sat with their dad on a sofa, totally transfixed by a game makes me smile. Seeing them practise their skills on the local astroturf makes me even happier.

    In a world of different cultures, religions and backgrounds I think football is a beautiful universal language. It creates new friendships, even just for an hour. It’s heart warming to see children and adults play with people they’ve only just met on a beach, campsite or local park… all because there was a ball being booted about!

    My favourite memories of a World Cup will always be Italia 90 when Paul Gascoigne (Gaza) broke down in tears after he received a booking in England’s semi-final against West Germany which would have ruled him out of the final.

    His tears captured the hearts of many England fans both in the stadium and back home, though England went on to lose the match on penalties.

  3. I can not for the World Cup this summer in Russia. I would like England to win this historic, golden trophy,but in more realistic terms I think that Brazil will win the World cup but other teams also have a good chance, these include:Portugal,Spain,France,Germany and Belgium. I think one of these teams will win because they have all got strong squads. But I think that the top two teams are France and Brazil.I think this because they have got extremely good players like Neymar Jr and Antoine Griezmann.Even though France only have one World Cup to their name I think they could win this tournament.Another reason for this is that France have a lot of young,energetic players who want to impress these include: Kylian Mbappe,Thomas Lemar and Alexandre Lacazette.But this could backfire as some of these young players have not experienced or played in a tournament of this magnitude in their entire lives.As for Brazil they have won the most World cups ever, 5.Also they have got Neymar Jr an excellent talent, I think that this will boost their chances of winning the tournament.

    I think that the player of the tournament will be Neymar Jr,I think this because he looked sharp and World-Class in the Warm-Up games.I also think that Ronaldo and Messi will shine for their respected countries.

    I will be watching the World Cup and will give updates on Senegal’s progress in the tournament.But I will be supporting England.Come on England!

  4. I am very excited for the world cup. Which is why i am going to tell you about Argentina f.c . Here are a few facts:

    The first official match by Argentina was against

  5. Tomorrow the World Cup starts. I just cant wait for the opening game ( Russia vs Saudi Arabia) Personally I think Germany will win this years World Cup for a second time in row because the have got a really talented squad. I think the final will be between France and Germany where Germany will win from a lucky goal. I think that Brazil will finish 3rd because they have got a spectacular player in them Neymar Jr. France have got many young and quick players but this could also go wrong for them because it is their first ever major tournament.

    I think that the World cup player of the tournament and also the top goal scorer will be Antione Grizeman as he had an amazing Euros even though they didn’t win the whole tournament he still did amazing. The reason why I am not backing a German player is that because as I said they will win with a lucky goal. Other players that could be top scorers are Neymar Jr and even Messi are Ronaldo could. Who knows?

    Speaking about Ronaldo I would like to talk more about him now. This year I don’t think he will do as good as the Euros where he won it but I still just cant wait to see his magic work on the pitch. I think that he is at the moment the best player in the World but he could be still over beaten by Messi as Ronaldo is getting older. Overall I think he will have an ok tournament.

    Now I would like to talk about England. I still want them to win but I don’t think they will as they got knocked out by Iceland in the Euros. Just how? I was so heart broken and so was all the England fans. It was Iceland’s first ever tournament then and now their first ever World Cup.

    My best memory of the World Cup was when I started watching football when I didn’t know much about football was in 2014 when I experienced Germany beat Brazil 7-1. I was so shocked.

    I will be watching the world cup and doing reviews of some of the games and supporting England all the way through

  6. I am very excited for the World Cup. Which is why I am going to be telling you a little bit about Argentina F.C . Here are a few facts: 1) The first official match by Argentina was against Uruguay the game was held on May 16 in 1901 and the result was a three to win for Argentina . 2) The biggest win by Argentina national team in the history of football was a 12-0 victory against Ecuador. The match took place on January 22 of 1942. 3) The biggest defeat Argentina ever suffered was 6-1 on two different occasions in June 1958 and April 2009 . 4) Argentina is one of the eight nations to have won the FIFA World Cup. They won in 1978 and 1986 and also being runner up in 1930 and 1990 .

  7. Watching football matches is a time to support players , and this summer holds a world cup in Russia . Football is also a time to enjoy yourself and have fun and to bring people closer in some way . In this report you’ll know you have a passion inside and that is football , even if you don’t play football just have a try and you’ll know how lucky you are to have a amazing passion .

    Recently , everybody has been yelling about the world cup about who’s going to win or don’t even have a chance to score a goal . As I think deeply , I know Brazil and Germany have a chance to became the champions , if England win it would become historic ! People watch football matches live [the stadium] or from tv , they watch it with family members , friends ,neighbours or people supporting the same team .

    We all know we like playing football and watching football matches I tell you why we all sit relaxed in our sofa enjoying ourself . Eventually , we all start discussing about the world cup and think who’ll win the world cup and lose and who was close to be called a champion .

    I know I’ll enjoy the world cup sitting with my family enjoying myself . On one hand , I support Switzerland because there not a bad team after all . On they other hand , I support England because I’ve seen them winning lots of games and they play good like always .

    I can’t wait to see who wins the world cup 2018 !!!

  8. I can’t wait until the world cup. My team is Austrailia and they’re going to play France but they (France) might have a chance to win. Australia’s captain is called Mile Jedinak and there coach is Bert ben Marwijk and he is 66 years old. In my opinion the best player is Robbie Kruse and if you like the football team Austrailia I am pretty sure your favourite player is going to be Robbie Kruse. My big brother isn’t interested in football but he does like the national Austrailian cricket team. I hope Austrailia win the world cup.

  9. I thought Portugal would win Spain but they drew and I am really excited for England
    Because where in the country of England. I hope the match is good. I think Brazil would
    win the World Cup too but I hope England can try to get it. Brazil has tooken all the good players. By Khadija Patel

  10. I can’t wait for the World Cup to start, I think Iceland is going to win because they have really good players such as Gylfi Sigurdsson. Also, I think South Korea, Brazil, Poland
    and England are going to win because they have got Legends on their team.I also give luck to all the other teams .I will be watching it with my Dad,I like football because it is a really good game and you can always be active.

  11. I cant wait for the world cup to start because its a really big event for me and lots of other people. There are going to be lots of team playing against each other. My team is Panama its a small team for England they’ve played against lots of teams . The team Panama is good they all work together and have eye contact. I hope they do well . They lost Belgam by 0-3

  12. I am really exited about the world cup. My country was Iran. I cant’t believe they won Morocco 1-0. Lots of teams are going to play so I hope Iran do well. Iran is a little bit big but not that small. So I think they should co- operate allot during the match. I hope they do well.

  13. I thought Spain was going to win but they drew. The population of Spain is 46.56 million!Spain is in the continent Europe. They always work together as a team and have eye contact. I cant wait for the world cup . Hope they win.

  14. I am really enjoying the world cup so far – I think, based on the games played so far that Russia are going to win! In 3X we had a draw and the team I got was Denmark. I was really pleased because in their first game they won against Peru.

    I am beginning to create a fact file about Denmark – so far I have learned that Denmark is in Europe, its capital city is Copenhagen. The flag colours are red and white. A famous player from Denmark is Christian Erikkson, he also plays for Tottenham Hotspur.

    I am also a big ENGLAND fan, I hope they win against Panama on Saturday June 23rd – come on ENGLAND!!

  15. costa rica,

    is a country in centeral America borderd by Nicaagua to the north panama to the south-east the pacific ocean the west,the caribbean sea to the east, and equator to the south of cocos island.their manager of their football team is Oscar Ramrez , anena stadium ,
    Estadio nacional deCosta Rica captain Bryan Ruiz sub confederation,UNCAF (Centeral America) Most caps,Centeno, They have won 3 CONCACAF champion chips in copa centroemerica.

  16. I am really enjoying the World Cup . For my team I got a team called Peru I was so sad when Puru missed a penalty against Denmark. I was also disappointed when they lost 1-0 they are at the bottom of the table and they are playing against France today.

    My sister got a team called France which is playing against my team today. I think France is going to win today. I also think that Peru will lose in the regroup.In group C I support France because they have star players like Pogba , Kanté, Loris, Mbappe and Giroud .

    In the World Cup I am an fan of Brazil beast they are a very good team. I hope Brazil win against Costa Rica tomorrow

  18. I am a big football fan. I am supporting Spain but I think Brazil or Spain will be the champions.
    My favourite player is David De gea he plays for Spain and my best football team Manchester united.
    David De gea is a world class goal keeper. he always surprises me with his saves!!!

  19. CROATIA
    Finally, football is here and guess what… Croatia is playing! Here are some points about Croatia:
    • They are 1st in the group D league !
    • They also WON 2-0 vs Nigeria.
    • Football in Russia was pretty much easy for them because they are close together.
    • They are 3 leagues above England!
    I Can’t Believe They Are Above England!

  20. I think the best player in the tournament is de gea because he is amazing in nets because he saves screamers free kicks and most of all penalties. My favourite team is Spain. I think Spain will win the world cup. I absolutely love football and this world cup means everything to me because it only comes every 4 years. I will be watching it with my family and I will be watching it at home on my TV.

  21. So far in the world cup, by watching all the matches so far, I think Russia is going to win the world cup because firstly, they have the tallest player, who is 6ft 4, and they are playing in their home town so they will be used to the environment.

    I also think that Spain will win because they have David de gea as their goalkeeper. He is also the best goalkeeper in the world. There was only one time when Ronaldo scored a goal that probably I would have saved. At least they drew with Portugal.

  22. I think the best player in the tournament is Harry Kane and my favourite team is Portugal but I predict England will win the world cup and it makes me feel excited to see who wins.

  23. I am really enjoying the world cup so far – my team was Australia which I personally think did quite well. They’ve already played 3 matches and lost 2 but to be fair all the teams in my group were amazing. In the last match against Denmark we drew which got us kicked out in the group stages like Peru, who were also in our group.

    I have learnt many facts about them for e.g their captain Australia’s captain is called Mile Jedinak and their coach is Bert Ben Marwijk and he is 66 years old. In my opinion the best player is Robbie Kruse.I also believe that Australia should have won yesterday against Denmark due to their amazing athletisizm and stealth.

    Overall I hope that England win the world cup (although they won’t)

  24. I think Aguero is the best player in the world cup because he has scored wonderful goals in the past. My favourite team is Argentina and I think they will win . I LOVE football and it makes me feel happy. I will be watching it with my family at my house.

  25. Tomorrow the World Cup starts. I just can’t wait for the opening game ( Russia vs Saudi Arabia) Personally I think Germany will win this year’s World Cup for a second time in row because they have got a really talented squad.

  26. I am really looking to see who is going to win the world cup this time i am such a good football supporter i watch lots of football matches and i play football my self. As you can see on my last comment i said i think Russia will win the world cup. A reminder did you know that for me i got Denmark they won 1 time a draw in a match 1 time so i quite like my team.

  36. I am excited about the 2018 World Cup! My team is called IRAN

    They have played two matches so far and are doing better than many people expected! They beat Morocco 1-0 in their first match but sadly Spain beat them 1-0 in their second match. They need to try really hard in their third match on Monday if they want to stay in the World Cup. They are playing against Portugal so it may be a hard match to win.

    The manager of Iran is Carlos Queiroz who used to work at Manchester United Football Club and the captain of team is Masoud Shojaei.

  37. My team is Australia and I am looking forward to watching them play against Peru when they play their next match on Tuesday.They lost their first match when they played against France and France beat them 2-1.They drew against Denmark 1-1.It will be very important for them to win against Peru if they want to stay in the World Cup.

    I love watching football and have been watching all the matches. Even though I picked Australia I am still very excited about watching England play.

Mohammed Amaan 3X-In the world cup in Russia 2018, I have watched some of the games, I preferred games with a lot of goals for example Spain V Portugal Russia V Saudi Arabia and Argentina V Croatia. My faviroute team in the world is England, but I hope Costa Rica win the world cup as I was chosen to be Costa Rica in Class, however I think that either Portugal or Brasil might win the world cup because Brasil have a very good team and Portugal has Ronaldo who is the best player in the world!

I am enjoying the world cup because all the different colours t-shirt the teams are wearing, my favourite team t-shirt is yellow Brazil. I also like the fans dress up and paint there faces with flags. My favourite players Mo salah has only played one game and he scored a penalty, Ronaldo is another player I like he has scored 4 goals. My dad always makes us choose which team will win before the game starts so we enjoy watching the game more and cheer and clap.

Portugal sit 3 points behind Switzerland in (group b).I also know that Ronaldo brought the ball to the endline and crossed to Andre Silva and the AC Milan striker headed home despite having a hungary defenders throwing themselves at him.They did it with effort to keep the ball from going over the line.MY team is PORTUGAL.I have Ronaldo in my team. I am very EXITED.

  55. I have enjoyed watching some of the World Cup matches so far. My team is Mexico and I hope that they do well. My older brother loves football and he has been following all the games. We hope England win and I’m looking forward to their game against Panama this afternoon.

  56. I will be supporting Portugal, the reason why is because ronaldo plays for Portugal. I hope they win the World Cup as they are a good side. I think a underdog team will win the World Cup.

    My reason for supporting ronaldo is because he always plays well and always excites me with all his tricks and skills. He has been selected a number of times for the best player in the world.

    The World Cup means a great deal to me as firstly I can learn from the game, secondly by watching the worlds best players on the biggest stage perform at their best. This way I can learn new skills and try to apply it when I am playing.

    I will be watching the World Cup with my dad and he always explains things to me when I do not understand.

    COME ON PORTUGAL… COME ON RONALDO!!!!!! Afeef 3X

  57. Before the game started and the players lined up I was inspired two countries completely different but brought together for the love of the game. How I wish everyone would come together to make this world a peaceful place.
    When the football game started I was surprised how well Panama played but England got on top and scored within the first 10 minutes. COME ON ENGLAND!

    To be honest if we defended like that in our game from a corner my coach would have been Very angry, no one at the post.

    A penalty Kane AGAIN catching with Ronaldo, COME ON ENGLAND!.
    GOLDEN BOOT.

    Too Much Shouting from me got sore throat. COME ON ENGLAND!.

  58. I’m a big football fan I think Spain is going to win because they have got the best players and I got them in the draw. The best footballer is David de Gea and Ramos. They are playing COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!
    They have got a BIIIIIIIIG chance of WINING the World Cup. I think their home kit is the best. WHAT IS YOURS!!!!! The capital city of Spain is Real Madrid. England are also on their way to the round of 16 after they thrashed Panama. Hopefully England and Spain are in the final. Ibrahim P 3X

  59. Hello my name is hashim 3x. I got Senagal so far we have won and today we are going to play against Japan. I thing England are going to win because they won 6-1 and 2-1. Harry Kane scored two goals. I thin senagal are playing good so far and might get in to the quarterfinals at least and then loose. England have scored the most goals in the whole World Cup 6 goals fore England. Cristiano ranaldo is the bet player in porchigal and he scored a hat trick. I think Belgium are going to win the World Cup even Brazil or England might win as well. Muhmmed hashim 3x.

  60. I support England but hope Mexico wins and they both meet the final. Luckily they beat Germany who were the current winners! On Saturday 23rd of June they beat South Korea with Carlos Vela scoring a magnificent goal in the middle scoring at the top.
    Next, Javier Hanandez scored a perfect goal from the bottom left. Then Korea scoaring a goal with Mexico’s goal keeper diving to save the goal but sadly didn’t save it. So the ending results were 2-1, I was so happy!The other match which was Mexico vs Germany was 1-0 and Mexico won.The football player that scored for Mexico was Hirving Lozano with an amazing goal on the left in the bottom corner, in the penalty box with his right foot.I hope Mexico or England win . Who do think will play next?

  61. I am so excited for the Russia world cup ! I ‘m not a really big fan of football but only a little and I support Spain because I support it and my Family but we also watch it sometimes but, I want Iceland to win the world cup as I was chosen to be Iceland in class however, I think Portugal or I think Brazil might win in the world cup because brazil have a really good team of there’s and Madrid has Ronaldo who is one of the best players but the second best is Mo Salah.I can’t wait for it. LAIBA 3x

  62. Surprisingly, there are many matches that I have watched the most favourite of mine is England vs Panama well England scored 6 I was really impressed . I think the match: Portugal vs Spain was a shocking match this is because aproxiametly in five minutes Ronaldo scored a goal. I was actually amazed and knew from that momment Ronaldo was going to win the Fifa World Cup. Unfortunately, it was a draw.

    Football is a way of expresssing yourself and sometimes you feel glad that the player scored a goal and sometimes you feel a little deppressed when the player was that close to a goal and they awfully miss it a few times. I watch Football with my sister and my Dad and we sometimes vote for different teams.

    Well I hope the best of luck to all the players out there playing in the Fifa World Cup.

  63. Khyra 3x,I have watched a few of the matches the ones that I preferred was England v Panama Saudi Arabia Argentina Croatia.My team that I support is Egypt and I hope they win or bring victory. I am also a England fan they are my real World Cup Team.

    When me and my family watch the World Cup about a few people
    get there eyes stuck on the screen and it looks like they will never look around again or they will have there eyes on the screen forever until it finally ends.

    Most of my family are a football fan especially the boys footbal is like there best friend an they could watch it all day. When any team gets a score they start shouting and screaming and when they do that it really hurts my ears!!!

    A lot of the girls don’t like football but when it is a World Cup they start to gat everything they need and when a team or a player gets a score they
    start screaming
    or just be calm.

    Egypt is my favourite team and my favourite player in that team is Mo Salah and England
    Is my real favourite
    Team in World Cup

    I got Uruguay in class so that is my team

    Please support England and give them cheers of luck and support

    Khyra p 3x

  64. I have to admit that football is not my favourite thing! I rarely switch the T.V on at home so I rely on friends and family to tell me the latest news. However, I do absolutely love meeting friends and having a good catch-up. We usually make a nice meal for everyone to enjoy and have an array of snacks to keep me busy! I cheer when someone scores a goal and then I get back to the important task… eating!

    My favourite memory of the World Cup was when I lived in South Korea. Each city would have a designated area where we could all sit outside and watch the games on a huge screen. The weather was amazing and the atmosphere was always so positive.

    I have high hopes for England this year! I think that this will be an amazing year for us!

  65. My team is Russia and i am going to tell you interesting facts for you.There head coach is called Stanislav Cherchesov .There captain is called Igor Akinfeev .Russia full name is Russia Federation.There population is 144,125,000.Russia has been through 31 matches and won 17 matches.In Russia you eat a porridge with grains bread with one topping butter and ham.Russia had a match with Saudi Arabia they won 5 points and Saudi Arabia with 0 points.

    My dad is a crazy football fan….my mum sometimes says that he loves football more than her.

    The team I want most to become world champions is England but I would also like to see South Korea win as this is the team I drew out from the hat.

    The best player in the world cup is CR7. I am watching him play whilst writing this blog.

    Did you know that my mum and dad’s wedding was on the same day that Italy won the 2006 world cup.

  70. I am really excited for Colombia’s next game against Iceland. I hope they win. After this, they will be playing Portugal, however I don’t think they’ll win, seen as they have the worlds best player, “Christiano Ronaldo, but they mite still have a chance of winning the World cup trophy! About all, I am very glad if England has been winning.

  71. I hope Morocco win and i really enjoy doing the world cup.The world cup is all about contries and iv got and Morocco.Do you think Morocco will win the world cup,I do

  73. Hello my name is Haris.My team is called mexico. Mexico have two nicknames called el tri and el tricolor. The top scorer is called Javier Hemendez. They have two coloured kits green and white. There currunt fifa ranking is fifteenth. Haris 3X

  74. My best team in the world is England and I really hope they win the world cup. They have had two matches so far and they have won both of them. They played Tunisia and won 2-1 and have played Panama and won 6-1 which I think was a great game.
    In my opinion, I think Harry Kane is the best player in England as he has scored in every match so far and is amazing at dribbling and making sure the shots are on target.
    I think England can qualify for the finals as this year they have a very strong team and have really great players.

  75. The World Cup has not gone well for my team Egypt. In 6x we had a draw to see who got each team. I got Egypt. They had a disappointing World Cup loosing 2-1 to Saudi Arabia which means they finished bottom of their group. They also lost 3-1 to Russia and 1-0 to Uruguay totalling them 0 points. Personally I think Mo Salah would have done better than he has done.

    By Raees Patel

  76. Hellow my name is khadija from 3y and l am showing you what l know about football.My best football players Christiano Ronaldo because he is a eppic player also he is the best football player in the world. I am supporting Poutugal because they are a mad team and they have got the best player in there team that is Christiano Ronaldo.I really really really like football because it is a really good sport and also that is my favourite sport in the whole intire world.I think Christiano Ronaldo , Messi or Harry Kane might get the golden boots because they are fighting over the place.

  77. I support England because the best footballers are in this team. Their next match is on Thursday against Belgium and I am looking forward to watching it!

  80. A SHOCK RESULT!!!
    Yesterday South Korea beat Germany 2-0 which meant the champions are knocked out of the World Cup. This is a huge shock for football fans because they were our previous champions. As well as this they finished bottom of their group, loosing to Mexico 1-0 , winning to Sweden 2-1 but loosing to South Korea 2-0 which totalled them 3 points. Although South Korea won they didn’t manage to get through to the round of 16. I thought at the start of the competition that Germany will win the World Cup but they didn’t even get through to the round of 16.

    The reason that Germany didn’t do good was they picked Julian Brandt instead of Leroy Sane. Sane had a much better season than Brandt did. Sane won the league with Man City. Another reason is that 22 year old Werner wasn’t going to depend on your goal scorer. He doesn’t have enough experienced.

    Overall I am disappointed about Germany that they are knocked out.

    By Raees P 6x

  81. This year the world cup is being held in Russia . My team is South Korea . I am going to tell you football fans a few facts about my team .
    In Korea babies are considered as one year old at birth.The microchips for Apples Iphones are made by the South Koreans company SAMSUNG.
    I hope your teem does well . Good luck.

  82. Brazil football Team
    Brazil has an amazing and a very successful football team which has the best players in the word playing for them such as Neymar and Pele in the past. Brazil have been world champions 5 times and they are the only team to have played in every single tournament.They won in the FIFA World Cup in 2002,1994,1970,1962 and 1958. The first World Cup competition for Brazil football team gained international recognition after it made the final of the competition but Uruguay ended up winning.Brazil is oone of my favourite teams, what is your favourite team. Khadijah 5y

  83. Into the round of 16

    So far on the Valley blog I’ve talked about my predictions, about individual players, my team Egypt and about Germany getting knocked out of the World Cup.

    The round of 16 starts today with France playing Argentina and Portugal playing Uruguay. I think France and Portugal will win.

    England will now face Colombia in the round of 16 because we finished 2nd in our group. Belgium beat us which could be better if we win Colombia as we will play either Sweden or Switzerland in the quarter finals where as if we would have beat Belgium we would play Japan in the round of 16 and then play Brazil in the quarter finals. In my opinion we should be winning Colombia and getting through to the quarter finals and hopefully get into the Semi finals. We should also be winning either Sweden or Switzerland in the quarter final getting us through to the Semi finals but if we won the group and we would have had to play Brazil in the quarter finals and I think they would have beaten us.

I am slightly disappointed that Argentina got knocked out however many other excellent teams got knocked out like Germany, Portugal and Spain. It was a shock to me that Germany got knocked out because they are an amazing team and were last World Cup’s champions. I am now supporting England and I really hope they win.

  99. France football team
    France is a very successful and an amazing team. In France there are lots of good players like Pogba Mbappe lloris Greizmman and many more. So far France have won all the teams they have played in world cup Even Argentina which is one of the best teams . I am really happy that I got France in the World cup . In my opinion I think that France are going to win because they have won everyone they have played so far and they have put in a lot of effort. Out of ten for there good players I would rate it ten. Now I’m going to tell you a few facts about France.
    They even won the world cup in 1998. Mbappes amazing world cup 2018 gesture revealed as France striker helps children with disabilities.

  100. My football team is Spain for the World Cup in Russia. Spain have won only one World Cup (which was in 2010 vs Netherlands). Their best players are David De Gea ,David Silva, Andres Iniesta, Diego Costa, Thiago Alcantra, Jordi Alba and Marco Asensio. Spain have won the Euros 2 times. They won it in 2008 and 2012. Spain’s biggest win was against Bulgaria on 21 May 1933 when they won 13-0. The team was found in 1913. Iker Casillas has the most caps for Spain with 137. Spain got knocked out recently by the Russians last week. They lost 4-3 on penalty’s. I’m really enjoying the World Cup.

  101. It is finally The World Cup and this year, in 2018, The World Cup is being hosted in Russia!!! I am so excited because my team is actually …… RUSSIA!!! This is such a coincidence because The World Cup is being hosted in Russia. Normally i am not really passionate about football but this year i have been inspired by my teacher Mrs Topham to try and get involved. So far i think that Russia has been absolutely outstanding because they have beaten every single team that they have been against! Every time Russia play, after the match i pester people to tell me what the score was because i am so eager to find out whether Russia have done well or not. Personally i think that Brazil ( the 5 time world cup champions!!!) will win the world cup because their team have some extraordinary players who fight with all their might to win every match that they play but my all my fingers (and both thumbs) are tightly crossed in hope that Russia will WIN the world Cup. 🙂 🙂 🙂
    The most exciting match that Russia have played was Russia V Spain because the two teams went head to head in a spectacular penalty shoot out! I was on the very edge of my seat watching this exciting end of the match. You could see from all of the fans faces that they were gutted for Spain when they walked out of the stadium unsucsessful because Russia’s goalkeeper, Igor Akinfeev made an absolutely spectacular save on Spain’s last penalty!!!!!! I was absolutely ecstatic after this shocking save and celebrated myself at home.
    GO RUSSIA!!!! 🙂 :):):):)

  102. My football team is Spain for the World Cup in Russia. Spain have won only one World Cup (which was in 2010 vs Netherlands).

  103. The World Cup has started and it has been hosted in RUSSIA. I am really excited because I am the NO1 football fan!! I think that Russia has a really good chance of winning because they haven’t lost any matches so far. I am extremely surprised of the game Russia V Arabia because it was 5-0 to Russia. I was also surprised about Russia V Spain because it was 4-3 on the penalty shoot out to Russia and their goal-keeper was very successful. I could see the Russian fans shocked of how excellent they were playing. But I know England will win. Khalisah

    England played Sweden in the World Cup quarter Finals 2018 on Saturday 7th July 2018.
    They did not start game very positively as they did not have much possession.
    But as soon as England took the lead from a wonderful header by Harry Maguire at thirty minutes thereafter England was in total control of the game.
    COME ON ENGLAND
    By Laaibah Aziz

  122. ITS ACCTUALLY COMING HOME !!!

    England have beaten Sweden. We are now through to the semi finals. The first time since 1990 where we lost against West Germany. We will now be facing Croatia on Wednesday night. Hopefully we win and get into the finals. Croatia has got some good players such as Modric, Rakitic and even Manzukic. Their whole team are iches. Croatia have had some good games especially when facing Argentina where they won 3-0. I think we will win Croatia 2-1.

    Before entering this competition England were expected to get to the quarter finals at least, but we have got int0 the semi finals and maybe into the finals. Lets talk about Harry Kane. He has had an amazing tournament achieving the most goals, 6 in total. Harry Kane might even win the player of the tournament award.

    I think we will be in the final facing France. This would be an amazing game giving England a tough challenge.I still think England will win for the first time since 1966. COME ON ENGLAND !!!

  123. RUSSIA
    I was so excited for the World Cup especially for England because it is our country but I really thought that Russia would win but they lost in their own country and that was embarrassing for them . I thought Russia would win Croatia but they lost . I am so exited for England’s next match .
    Thank you
