Welcome to World Cup 3rd Group Phase Live Match Chat.
Forewarned is forearmed and all that….
We’ve posted this particular LMC a bit earlier than normal but that’s simply because of the points we are about to come onto really and their implications for your teams. This is where it starts to get a bit tricky as some teams have already qualified and others are still fighting tooth and nail to do so. Rest and rotation will occur naturally at this point for those who have but perhaps that may also depend on whether they are secure in 1st spot or wish to avoid a more tricky route by finishing there as opposed to 2nd. Either way it’s probably not the best round to be deploying that Bench Boost chip as getting 11 on the pitch may be hard enough, never mind 15!

For the record then here’s a quick reference guide to the situation in each group and who’s either ‘Qualified‘, have a ‘Squeaky bum time‘ ahead or are simply OUT! We won’t go into the exact scenarios in each group because quite simply they’re seemingly infinite and also mind numbing. All you need to know is whether they are through or not really. But even then it’s anybody’s guess as to what sort of team hits the field come kick off. It’ll be carnage, basically!


Russia – Qualified
Uruguay – Qualified
Egypt – OUT!
Saudi Arabia – OUT!


Spain – Squeaky bum time
Portugal – Squeaky bum time
Iran – Squeaky bum time
Morocco – OUT!


France – Qualified
Denmark – Squeaky bum time
Australia – Squeaky bum time
Peru – OUT!


Croatia – Qualified
Nigeria – Squeaky bum time
Iceland – Squeaky bum time
Argentina – Squeaky bum time


Brazil – Squeaky bum time
Switzerland – Squeaky bum time
Serbia – Squeaky bum time
Costa Rica – OUT!


Mexico – Squeaky bum time
Germany – Squeaky bum time
Sweden – Squeaky bum time
South Korea – Squeaky bum time


England – Qualified
Belgium – Qualified
Tunisia – OUT!
Panama – OUT!


Japan – Squeaky bum time
Senegal – Squeaky bum time
Colombia – Squeaky bum time
Poland – OUT!

You may need to be a touch more savvy with your planning in this round too as there are just 4 game days as opposed to the previous rounds being spread over 5 or 6 days. It means that the bench and captain switch options won’t be such a lose affair as they were previously. You can still plan out 4 viable captains and organise a decent enough bench of course. The fixtures themselves are as follows…


Monday June 25th
Saudi Arabia vs Egypt 3pm (Group A)
Uruguay vs Russia 3pm (Group A)
Spain vs Morocco 7pm (Group B)
Iran vs Portugal 7pm (Group B)

Tuesday June 26th
Australia vs Peru 3pm (Group C)
Denmark vs France 3pm (Group C)
Iceland vs Croatia 7pm (Group D)
Nigeria vs Argentina 7pm (Group D)

Wednesday June 27th
Mexico vs Sweden 3pm (Group F)
South Korea vs Germany 3pm (Group F)
Switzerland vs Costa Rica 7pm (Group E)
Serbia vs Brazil 7pm (Group E)

Thursday June 28th
Japan vs Poland 3pm (Group H)
Senegal vs Colombia 3pm (Group H)
Panama vs Tunisia 7pm (Group G)
England vs Belgium 7pm (Group G)

So that you have them to hand in one place here’s a reminder of the substitution rules, transfer allotment, wildcard and boosters. AKA the rules…

    Nobody wants to win this game and a draw is no good to England, they need to put on a fall-guy to get a red card if a draw is looking the likely outcome.

    Has Courtouis saved a shot yet? Our half decent team can’t beat the first half decent “big team” they come up against. Southgate rests all the matchwinners and loses!!! And Wellbeck comes on!!!
