World Cup Predictions
England vs Sweden
Connor: Sweden - England look so tough to play against in the 3-5-2 — they've got a structure and a plan for the future, but the future is not now. The now is Sweden. The now is Andreas Granqvist winning the Ballon d'Or.
Bryce: England - I think Sweden is the better team. But I don't understand this tournament and somehow England are going to make this happen. Sweden +210 to advance is killer value so I had to hop on that too.
Travis: England - I don't think England is all that great, but the Three Lions are playing as if they're actually going to win this thing. As long as England keeps playing less-talented teams or talented teams missing their best players, I don't see how Gareth Southgate's men lose.

Croatia vs Russia
Connor: Croatia - I mean, come on.
Bryce: Russia - Like I said, I don't know what the hell is happeneing. Russia-England World Cup semifinal kind of feels right in this messed up world.
Travis: Croatia - Russia has a huge advantage in this match. Croatia was looking dead tired against Denmark and the Russians have to be doping to have reached this point, so they'll be full recovered for the quarterfinal. That said, I don't think even Vladimir Putin wants to risk the scrutiny his team would face if it somehow reached the semifinals.
