In Russia is the biggest party the world is having right now. People from all around the world, from Germany to Brazil, are partying in celebration of the World Cup. Who's partying hard and who's feeling the blues?
Good: Russia: Starting off hot against Saudi Arabia and finishing off Egypt, the hosts are already advancing to the next round. They've scored eight goals in the process and have benefited from a paltry group. Maybe Putin has something to do with the team's luck, wink, wink...
Bad: Lionel Messi: The Argentinian superstar doesn't have a single goal in this World Cup. In fact, he missed a penalty kick against Iceland, resulting in a 1-1 draw. Now, Argentina's World Cup lives hang in the balance with the squad needing a win against Nigeria and an Iceland loss to help them advance.
Good: Cristiano Ronaldo: Ronaldo has literally put the Portuguese squad on his back, scoring all of Portugal's goals in this World Cup. Granted, the one-man show can go so far. But it'll be an exciting spectacle to see how far Ronaldo can take Portugal.
Bad: Egypt: Mohamed Saleh, the superstar next in line to become Messi/Ronaldo-like, has the only goal for Egypt in the World Cup. The Egyptians had an easy draw for the World Cup, but have already been eliminated by the likes of surprising Russia and Uruguay.
Good: Mexico: Can Mexico make it to the last four this year? It seems likely as they stunned defending champion Germany, 1-0, in the opener. Goaltending and Javier Hernandez will be the keys for Mexico's run.
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
