    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Group Stage

    Matchday 1 FT Scores: June 17, 2018

    From FIFA.com

    Group E
    Two-time FIFA World Cup Fourth Place finishers as SFR Yugoslavia, Serbia edged 2014 FIFA World Cup Quarterfinalists Costa Rica 1-0 inside Samara's Cosmos Arena in a chippy affair.

    Both teams combined for 33 fouls and four yellow cards.

    AS Roma and Serbian captain defender Aleksandar Kolarov scored the only goal of the match in the 56th minute with a superb free kick that gets past Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

    Costa Rica 0:1 (0:0) Serbia
    BB55's Man of the Match: Aleksandar Kolarov, Serbia

    Meanwhile in Rostov-on-Don, Neymar and five-time FIFA World Cup champions Brazil were held to a 1-1 draw to three-time FIFA World Cup Quarterfinalists Switzerland.

    FC Barcelona attacking midfielder/winger Philippe Coutinho unleashed a laser beam to give the Selecao a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes.

    But the Swiss equalized in the 50th minute as TSG 1899 Hoffenheim right winger Steven Zuber took advantage of poor Brazilian marking with a header off a Xherdan Shaqiri corner.

    Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper helped the Swiss get a point with five saves.

    Brazil 1:1 (1:0) Switzerland
    BB55's Man of the Match: Yann Sommer, Switzerland

    Group F
    And we have our first huge scalp of the 2018 FIFA World Cup!

    Two-time FIFA World Cup Quarterfinalists Mexico stunned the Luzhniki Stadium crowd as they defeat the four-time and reigning and defending FIFA World Cup champions Germany 1-0.

    PSV Eindhoven winger Hirving Lozano scored the only goal of the game in the 35th minute as West Ham United striker Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez grabbed the assist.

    Joachim Loew's Die Mannschaft had nine shots on target and had seven blocked as the Mexican defense stood firm.

    Standard Liege goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa had a nine-save clean sheet.

    Will Germany bounce back and avoid the Graveyard of Champions route of going out of the group stages? Since the turn of the 21st Century, three of the last four winners (France in 2002, Italy in 2010 and Spain in 2014) were bounced out of the group stages in a FIFA World Cup after winning it all in the previous tournament.

    As for Juan Carlos Osorio, a huge feather in his cap as Mexico national team boss.

    Germany 0:1 (0:1) Mexico
    BB55's Man of the Match: Guillermo Ochoa, Mexico

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Group Stage

    Matchday 1 FT Scores: June 18, 2018

    From FIFA.com

    Group F
    1958 FIFA World Cup runners-up Sweden tie Mexico for top spot in Group F after edging out 2002 FIFA World Cup Fourth Place finishers South Korea 1-0 inside Nizhny Novgorod Stadium.

    The only goal came in the 65th minute as the Swedes were awarded a penalty.

    Salvadoran referee Joel Aguilar waved off the claim before Video Assistant Referee Mauro Vigliano of Argentina buzzed Aguilar.

    VAR showed that Suwon Samsung Bluewings defender Kim Min-woo had a very late challenge on Krasnodar playmaker Viktor Claesson in the area and the call was reversed.

    Helsingborgs IF and Swedish captain central defender Andreas Granqvist slid home the penalty for the only goal of the game.

    Sweden 0:0 (1:0) South Korea
    BB55's Man of the Match: Andreas Granqvist, Sweden

    Group G
    1986 FIFA World Cup Fourth Place finishers Belgium gave FIFA World Cup debutant Panama a nightmarish start with a 3-0 whitewash inside Sochi's Fisht Olympic Stadium.

    Dinami Bucharest and former Los Angeles Galaxy goalkeeper Jaime Penedo kept the Belgian attack at bay in the first half as the game was scoreless at halftime.

    But Belgium flexed their scoring muscles in the second half.

    Napoli forward Dries Mertens made it 1-0 in the 47th minute and Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku scored a brace in the 69th and 75th minutes to secure the victory.

    Belgium 3:0 (0:0) South Korea
    BB55's Man of the Match: Romelu Lukaku, Belgium

    Meanwhile in Volgograd Arena, 1966 FIFA World Cup champions England left it late to break Tunisia's hearts in a 2-1 victory.

    The Three Lions drew first blood 11 minutes into the contest.

    Manchester United winger/wingback Ashley Young delivered a corner that met the head of Liverpool center-half back John Stones that saw Chateauroux goalkeeper Mouez Hassen making the save to deny Stones.

    But Tottenham Hotspur and English captain striker Harry Kane pounced on the rebound thanks to very poor marking to make it 1-1.

    Hassen had to leave the game due to injury five minutes later and Al-Shabab's Farouk Ben Mustapha replaced him.

    However, Tunisia equalized with a penalty after 35 minutes.

    Manchester City defender Kyle Walker threw an silly elbow in the area that caught Al-Ettifaq forward Fakhreddine Ben Youssef in the face.

    Al-Nassr defensive midfielder Ferjani Sassi just beat Everton's Jordan Pickford in the lower left-hand corner to tie the game at 1-1 at halftime.

    Colombian referee Wilmar Roldan also didn't give England a penalty in the second half despite VAR evidence proving him wrong.

    But England still broke Tunisia's hearts in stoppage time as Tunisia's poor marking off set pieces did them in again as Leicester City central defender Harry Maguire headed a pass from Tottenham Hotspur right back Kieran Trippier's corner and found Kane who poked in a header for his second goal of the match and give England the full three points.

    Tunisia 1:2 (1:1) England
    BB55's Man of the Match: Harry Kane, England

    It's an important game for both Egypt and Russia in Saint Petersburg.

    Will Liverpool striker Mo Salah play in the contest? The Pharaohs need a point to stay alive while Russia needs a win for a possible qualification into the Round of 16.

    Roster Updates

    Croatia
    AC Milan, on loan from Fiorentina, striker Nikola Kalinic sent home after refusing to come on as a late substitute during Croatia’s first game against Nigiera, citing a back injury as an excuse.

    Croatia will play with 22 men.

    COL were a man down, to be fair. They were also down James who, although is a giant D.B., is definitely a key man to the NT.
