The Russian fans haven't even bothered showing up. Poor.

There is literally no part of me that is looking forward to a World Cup being hosted in this country next year.

I'm more excited about The Championship next season and I have no affiliation to it.

Ugh - I hate video replays already. Just takes the human element out of it. 

Wonder if you'll still hate it if a goal is ruled out against you that was offsides....

All for it. Getting sick of teams losing due to bull shit officiating. 

4 Portuguese players were offsides. Imagine if that fucking stood.

LIkely will. I'm all for getting the call right, but I think offsides can sometimes be up the ref's descrection. If a guy is offside, but no where near the ball, are they are going start calling those too? 

The VAR was obviously the correct call, and I'm glad they got it right, but I wonder how they will handle it when it's not as obvious.

Shit lineups or not, I find Fernando Santos' Portugal side very interesting tactically. I enjoyed them at the Euro's despite most of their games being low scoring. Hopefully they win the whole thing here.

I wouldn't mind Portugal or...Chile actually to win it.

Anyone but Chile or Mexico to me.

Please not those 2. I'm not worried about Mexico as to me they don't have a chance. Chile on the other hand...

Oh course I want anyone but Mexico, but I do like Chile. Got pull for Medel. 

Mexico ties it up thank to Chicarito. 

1-1

this was the problem. There were errors being made by officials which had a direct consequence on the outcome of the game. This is what they want to eradicate.

Also, will they look at goals that were clearly scored but the ref incorrectly put off the offside flag? 

i think they'll let the play continue to see if a goal is scored or likely to be scored and then review it if necessary. So yeah it'll work both ways.
