One to watch
Yes, there’s a first look at Argentina as Messi makes what’s likely to be a final bid for World Cup glory. And then the emotion of Christian Eriksen and Denmark as they face Tunisia.
Mexico v Poland has Robert Lewandowski in action and promises goals but… France v Australia is where the Premiership connection is.
Martin Boyle may have suffered the agony of having to leave the squad through injury but there are still six SPFL-based players in the Socceroos squad, and Scottish-born Harry Souttar and Jason Cummings add to the tartan flavour in the team.
Seeing what could almost look like a Premiership select up against Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud is not to be missed.
Somethjing doesn’t add up about the crowd numbers. How many are actually watching games in Qatar?
Maybe France are better off without Karim Benzema. Is Olivier Giroud a better option for Didier Deschamps?
“Winning the World Cup is a strange and possibly even unfair measure by which we assess a footballer’s greatness, given that it is a path where chance plays an abnormally large role.” Musa Okwonga on Lionel Messi’s last dance
“Every eye, every smartphone, every Steadicam, every telephoto lens, is trained on him at this moment, as the rain comes down and his team-mates engulf him.” Kylian Mbappe made an impact at Russia 2018, now he carries expectation.
