Switch my 25 from Silva to Costa. I’m such a casual soccer fan that I got those two confused. And I’ll add 25 on Russia to win its group.

Sorry i missed out on this. I put real money on the following:

Russia match 1: $40
France to win cup: $10
Belgium to win cup: $10
England to win cup: $10
England to win its group: $20

I think France and Brazil are the favorites, but obviously a lot can happen. France have the most talent though, and the most depth, so I went with them. Belgium have longer odds but are also talented, and will score.

I’m actually quietly impressed with Southgate, and think England go into this in a decent place of mind. I also think a number of their players have benefited from the Pep, Klopp, and Poch mentoring. I don’t really think they will win, but liked their odds on winning the group better than those for some of the other big teams.
