I can’t wait 16 hours, Bundes, was thinking more like 3pm (3 hours).

I tried last night to buy tickets for Russia-Spain and England-Colombia. Both are happening in Moscow, and the website was showing limited availability.
But it’s for single tickets as opposed to a pair, and they are 200 quid each, so maybe a good thing they weren’t available.

Went for a run just now, and finished in Red Square.

Luzhniki stadium is at the 9 km mark.

Red Square and the surrounding streets are packed with fans from all over - Peruvians, Koreans, plenty of teams might already be flying home, but their fans are sticking around. Seen loads of Spaniards too drinking lager outside the cafes, so forget the afternoon - they were already on the lash this morning!

You're there, great opportunity, just do it! (Buy one only, for you) I would and I'm poor. It's a chance in a lifetime.

200 quid is nothing compared to what all the other people flying/busing in are spending.

I drank too much last night while watching the Argentina game at my hotel. Will probably take the next week off drinking.

I'll be watching this in the gym, I've drank enough over the last few days and I need to exercise to maintain my good looks.

If I wake up in time, I'll be going to the bar to watch Croatia v Denmark. Too bad there aren't many Croatians or Danes where I live, it really helps the atmosphere.

Not really - my wife loves football as much as I do, had Palace season tickets etc. Tried to book single tickets online and the website isn’t working.

Have not decided which pub for Friday/Saturdays matches. OR The Outdoor TWO HUGEAF screens with comped drinks (though SRO).
