I am not a fan of soccer... but of course the World Cup is on and is hugely popular with many people.

I do usually get sucked in eventually and take an interest towards the end of a World Cup. :cool

Starting a thread... but it probably wont be anything like comprehensive coverage. Feel free to post your thoughts on the event

I don't watch sports, but I got sucked in to the World Cup 2010 and wound up really enjoying it. I was planning on watching it again, but I saw a few stories/documentaries about FIFA recently, and I'm not sure I want to watch it anymore.

Goals record as group stage ends, Algeria create history

Image

THE DAY REPLAYED – As the group stage reached its climax at the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™, Portugal, Ghana, Korea Republic and Russia were all left facing early flights home along with the 12 sides eliminated before them. The tournament has come to a close too for Luis Suarez, with the Uruguay striker suspended for nine matches and four months following an incident during La Celeste's meeting with Italy on Tuesday.

Elsewhere, Algeria are revelling in a breakthrough moment after decades of frustration. Les Fennecs (Desert Foxes) recorded a 1-1 draw with Russia to seal their progress to the Round of 16 for the first time in the history, ensuring a place in the hearts of a nation for Vahid Halilhodzic and his men.
