Hopefully South American teams can rise up and win, because this Eurotrash stuff is completely unacceptable. They seem like pusssies to the highest degree. They complain so much more than any other confederation that I think they should cancel the Russia World Cup just because of the open vaginas.
At the start of the tournament you could have seen how most European teams were struggling physically, while most of their players have been playing for arguably the best clubs in the world and training regime of these should get you into optimal form to bear the ultimate physical challenges on the pitch. it is irrelevant that some SA players have been playing abroad for a while, as it will be always easier for them to bear extreme heat and humidity. They are simply more accustomed to. Fifa should have never scheduled games in the mid of the day, but money for these folks is more important than health of the footballers.
To the point where it's not a big advantage for the SA and CA teams anymore, after the initial shock for the non-American teams. The 1PM matches are a pain in the ass for everyone, now that the legs are more tired. We saw it on Brazil-Chile.
My remark was about the people claiming how it's not that bad in Brazil, since it's winter. Or those who claimed that it's worse playing in Italy right now than in Brazil.
