Mine would be:

 

Favourite Goal: Messi vs Nigeria. Just love the first two touches and finish so much

 

Favourite Match: Spain 3-3 Portugal

 

Favourite Player: Probably Perisic despite him helping to knock out England. Love how direct he is

 

Favourite Moment: That Iranian fella doing a roly-poly throw in in the final minute

Goal: Ronaldo vs Spain free kick.

Match: Belgium 3-2 Japan.

Player: Kante was probably the player that contributed the most to his team playing well. Ochoa for Mwxico is a good runner up.

Moment: Mexican fans throwing random Koreans into the air.

On the bright side, hadn't realised how much of a 'home' tournament next Euros will be. Knew we had the two semis and the final, but thought that was it. We'll also have 2 games at Wembley and one at Hampden, plus a round of 16 in Dublin should we win our group.

Favourite Goal?

Coutinho vs. Switzerland

 

Favourite Match?

Japan vs. Belgium. Both teams made it so entertaining to watch with the way they played

 

Favourite Player?

Kylian Mbappe. That kid is gonna be a real stand-out over the next 5 years.

 

Favourite Moment?

England beating Colombia on penalties, and then seeing the Dixon/Wright/Neville celebrations in the studio :lol: My nerves were absolutely shot after that but what a feeling man. I don't think I've experienced anything quite like that in football since I was a kid watching Euro '96. Maybe Bellamy against Feyenoord but it's totally different circumstances.

 

I thought the Senegal fans were great to watch by the way. Even though you could only see a really small portion of them bunched in there, they made constant noise, never ran out of energy and brought a great carnival atmosphere to the world cup.

 

For me I think I would say that it's been the best world cup since Japan/Korea in 2002.

Favourite things:

 

1: Germany going out.

2: Favourites for the competition dropping like flies. (Spain, Argentina, Germany, Brazil.. etc.)

3: Cheering on all the underdogs at evey opportunity.

 

Favourite Goal: Mandzukic making Lloris look a tit.

Favourite Match: Belgium 3-2 Japan.

Favourite Moment: See Favourite Goal.

 

edit Haven't done a complete check but I think Croatia scored more goals (16?) than any other team at this world cup, not counting penalty shoot-outs. (But I'm pretty pissed so possibly wrong).

2nd edit Looks like Belgium might have got 16 as well. (Can some dedicated statistician who is sober check the figures?)

Off the top of my head Croatia scored 14 but Belgium scored 16.
