Usually in a World Cup tournament the real action begins in the round of 16 knockout phase, but these first-round matches are like nothing I’ve seen before!
I haven’t seen a boring one yet, and believe me, I’ve seen some really boring matches in my years watching the World Cup. We’re talking since 1978, okay?
I remember there were some matches in the 1990 World Cup in Italy that put me to sleep. England was playing, but that’s another story. The pace of matches at this World Cup is pretty fast. It’s like watching a hybrid of the English Premier League and the Spanish La Liga.
