    We had a request for a fun little OOC Event about the FIFA World Cup (which, for those of us who are entirely sports illiterate, is American soccer/everywhere else football). And why not have a little fun with it?! So here are the very simple rules:

    Below you'll find a list of the 32 teams involved in the tournament. You can either sign-up for your favorite or say you want the extra element of gambling involved in being randomly assigned a team, and then at the end of the tournament there will be a fun little trophy involved for the person (or people) on the team that made it the farthest!

    Team: Australia — one of our weaker sports but I have to pick my own country!

    Germany won last time and they're strong contenders again. Friendly competition aside my personal pics would be Germany, Brazil and France. But Argentina are up there and so is Spain! Of course Russia have the home country advantage, this is gonna be great I'm so excited !

    The champions Germany are strong contenders to defend the trophy. Brazil were the last team to win back to back titles in 1958 and 1962. Really hope Germany don’t retain but they have a strong squad to go all the way. Still think that they won't win it this time.

    Brazil will be looking for redemption after their humiliating 7-1 defeat on home soil to Germany in the 2014 World Cup Semi final. Many expect Brazil to make a statement this time around and they are one of the faves to win the tournament. The arrival of Tite has transformed the five time champions. This time Brazil doesn’t have to rely on Neymar as in the previous WC. They have many talented players. If Neymar can stay fit, he will be one of the contenders for the golden boot. I'm expecting Brazil to at least get to the semis and could possibly win the tournament.

    France have a talented squad but I’m not sure if they can win it Euro 2016 was a heartbreak for France, lost the final in their own country. Now winning the WC 20 years after their first WC win would be brilliant. This could be their time. Really hope they go far in the tournament.

    The 2010 winners Spain will be looking to rebound from a disastrous 2014 campaign where they went out in the 1st Round. They have a strong squad to go far in the tournament but I don’t think they will win the cup. Semi Finals at best.

    Argentina have lost three major finals in a row. Runners up in the 2014 WC. Runners up in the past two Copa America tournaments. Underperformed in the qualifiers and Messi saved them to scrape them through. One thing missing from Messi’s resume is a WC win. He came close in the 2014 WC as they finished as runners up. Argentina have a talented squad. Despite having the GOAT Messi, can’t see them going all the way.

    England. Nope.

    I’d like to see a country winning for the first time but it’s very unlikely to happen in this tournament. Belgium have so many talented players. Will this be the tournament where their golden generation goes all the way? Hope so but I can’t see them going beyond the last 8

    The 2016 European Championship winners Portugal have never won the WC. This is going to be Ronaldo’s last WC. They flopped in the 2014 tournament where they went out in the group stage. They don’t have the quality to go all the way but they should at least get to the Quarter Finals.

    Team: I've read some sarcastically written blurb about how that restaurant down the street would even show the finale if Iceland was playing against Panama, and I just want to say one of the two for the fun of it, bc how funny would that be? So. Iceland for me, pls.
