    Well here we go, less than 12 hours out from the opening match (France vs Argentina). I'm picking France to pick up a few late tries and win easily enough in the end after a tight first half. Should be an interesting match worth watching!

    Quite excited about the opening game, although I'll be getting up at 6am and watching the opening ceremony. Like Somerset, I'm predicting a French victory, although I'd absolutely love to see Argentina get up and win.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Good match this. Hoping for Argentina to win, as they're both England's nemesis in sport going purely for the underdog.

    Love Argentina, Felipe Contepomia is one of my favourite players. Neither teams looking that good in attack though.

    Argentina certainly looking better than France though atm, France have barely been inside their 22.

    Yeah, France are looking like ****. Their halfback is having a shocker.

    France starting to open up a bit more, but it has been amazing defence from the Pumas.

    No weight transfer through the ball at all, I haven't been impressed with the first five or halfback for France TBH. Bring back Michalak.
