    Four years ago, I started a thread for the Brazilian World Cup. Four years later, I repeat my duty.

    We're nearly three hours away from the first match. This world cup is notorious for the absence of Italy and the United States, the Ivorian and Ghanaian qualification streaks being broken and the debut of Iceland and Panama.

    As is the standard, the first day will feature just one game: Russia vs. Saudi Arabia.

    TIMES FOR THE OPENING CEREMONY AND THE MATCH:
    WET: 15:30/16:00
    CET: 16:30/17:00
    EDT: 10:30/11:00
    WDT: 07:30/08:00
    MSK: 17:30/18:00

    I'm sure if Russia kicks some Saudi Arabia's butt.

    Iran won 1-0 against Morocco through an own goal from a Moroccan player. Portugal-Spain starts in less than an hour.

    Germany 0 - 1 Mexico (¡¡¡¡¡GOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!)

    Next up: Brazil vs. Switzerland

    Notice that I'm watching KVEA (Telemundo Los Angeles) on my 4K TV with an OTA antenna, because my Dish provider with channels Fox Sports 1, KVEA (Telemundo Los Angeles; satellite feed), and Telemundo (National) became 6-10 seconds late during the live program.

    Oh, one more thing...


    Happy Father's Day!

    Which do you think is doing better coverage or is it equal?

    Must been equal. On my OTA antenna, it does perfectly faster on my 4K TV, unlike Dish itself if the broadcasting was a little late.

    Spain won a point against Iran.

    EDIT: Iran and Spain were tied.

    DOUBLE EDIT: Iran took the point off.
