How is Wakefield Firsts' World Cup Draw coming along? ...
Fri 22 Jun 2018
Hosts Russia got the tournament off to a flier with a thumping 5-0 victory over Saudi Arabia . Day two saw the highly anticipated match up between Euro 2016 winners Portugal and 2010 World Cup champions Spain in Sochi and what a spectacle we were treated to.
A lacklustre French side began their campaign with a narrow 2-1 win over Australia while Lionel Messi’s Argentina stumbled to a draw against an impressive Iceland side with Messi missing a penalty.
Defending champions Germany suffered the biggest upset of the tournament so far with Hirving Lozano’s winner giving Mexico their first ever competitive victory over the Germans.
Following on from Germany’s surprise defeat another of the tournament favourites got off to a slow start as Brazil struggled to break down their Swiss opponents as the game finished 1-1.
Finally England got off to a winning start for this first time since 2006 as captain Harry Kane swooped late on to defeat Tunisia after a controversial Sassi penalty had cancelled out Kane’s opener.
