Now Brazil has dropped points. The favorites has not looked like the favorites at all. What a very interesting start this has been.

Yeah, this World Cup is definitely interesting, in that there doesn't seem to be clear-cut favorites in the field. Even some of the teams that were favorites coming in (Belgium, France, Germany, Argentina, etc.) looked sluggish. Maybe that's just some nerves since it's still early in the tournament, but still interesting. I know Belgium won 3-0 today but they definitely looked shaky at times before they ultimately wore out Panama and scored 3 second half goals. Still got two games left tomorrow before the 1st set of group stage games are complete, but I think the Iceland-Argentina result AND Mexico-Germany results are the most surprising so far. Brazil drawing with Switzerland was also surprising I guess.
England need to bring Loftus Cheek on. I do not like Alli & Lingard as a midfield pairing. Lingard more of a wide attacker [an attacker more than an organizer of play] and Alli more a guy who runs into the box [also more of an attacker more than an organizer of play]. Neither are creative passers. England lacking that creativity in the middle of the park. Loftus-Cheek is the best man to provide that in the squad. He needs to be on the pitch. I'd take off Trippier to bring Loftus-Cheek on. Move Sterling out wide and Alli up front.
