Brazilian football is a busted flush.

Argentina have always had a more European style but without home advantage and the magic of Diego they would probably never have won their two World Cups.

It will be a long time before they ever host it again, if ever and Diego was unique, the Argies won't see a boy like him again.

Nor will anyone else comes to that.

The fact that all the best young Brazilian players are heading to Europe at a very young age means they are being coached in the European way and when it comes to the WC the Brazilians no longer have the capacity to surprise anyone.

The field has levelled and into the breach strides Der Fatherland.

Even at this early stage I would say it is hard to see them not being favourites and actually winning the 2018 renewal in Russia.

Deutschland uber alles.

Best team eventually won it, just about.

I am going to boycott the next one, see you chaps back here for USA/Canada/Mehico 2026 :smt039

See ya in 2026, lash. Would like to boycott 2022, see how it rolls in the next four years. Though Qatar are cunts, but so are so many, and yes the migrant workers and many videos out there, can't find the one I want to post.

Yay, if still in health and some wealth to go to 2026.

Dejan Lovren loses a CL and WC Final a couple of months apart. Ouch that must hurt.

France is more of a rugby country. That's why the french league has never been very strong.

Rugby is more popular in the south of France, leader. And in Paris. Football is popular all over. Tennis is second according to Mr Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sport_in_France

Cycling is amazingly popular in the Med countries as an individual sport, hence the love of Le Tour. And nowt wrong with a game of Pétanque, over 300k players.

And it could be that their best players get bought up by richer clubs of other countries. Remember Platini at Juve?

Yes it has. They did well in the 1982 and 1986 World Cups. They were runners up in the 2006 Final. Won the 1998 and today’s final. Won the European Championships in 1984 and 2000.

What do you base your comments on because they are totally unfounded and you clearly have little knowledge of international football and talk in ill founded cliches taken from TalkSPORT.

A more successful soccer nation than that England any day.

Even more humiliating if it were a Rugger nation, which it ain't thankfully.

I might talking about the french 1st division which is weak compared to the English, Italian, Spanish and german leagues. Games are often poorly attended. It's only since a couple of teams were bought by rich sugar daddies they've had a presence in the champions league .

Not going to look fan stats, leader, but PSG with coin and Monaco with patronage, aside, remember Lyon and Marseille is a football hotbed.

Course they are weaker than the other four, coin, coin and more coin.
