My friends a little more than a week after starting the World Cup in Russia today I propose a brief analysis of what is happening in a surprising event.

I hope you agree with me that until now this is one of the most difficult world championships in recent times, except for Russia that has scored 8 goals in two games and Belgium that played against Panama, nobody else has won easy in this world cup, nor for being favorites, world champions or anything. In Russia to win you have to sweat for real. The world is beautiful.

At the time of writing these lines Brazil and Costa Rica are equaled to zero goals, and the verdeamarilla has to win yes or yes to not complicate more, a priori I think it will.

So far Mexico has stolen the hearts of many, including mine, his great victory against Germany, was convincing, now it is necessary for the Tri to keep pace and that the euphoria does not cloud the view.

Mexico and Russia have been the sensation, Argentina is the big disappointment, and right now a miracle with capital letters is the only thing that could put them in eighths because they no longer depend on themselves. Here I want to stop because I think the blame has many, of course the coach Jorge Sampaoli who never found the ideal system or alignment, which left out important players inexplicably, and the group that lacked the extra field, and of course by rule of three the blame for the failure albiceleste also comes to Lionel Messi, who has to be the leader of Argentina on the court and never until today has succeeded.


In the debacle against Croatia Lionel Messi only gave 31 passes to his teammates, of them 10 to players like Enzo Pérez or Mascehrano, which evidences his little offensive contribution, and the statistics of the Insat specialized site show that way 84 percent of the game, and it was the one that less distances ran of all the players that played the 90 minutes, insufficient for which some people assure is the best football player of the world. It is another failure of the 10th with Argentina and again without him being up to the height, what a mess for Lio nel.

Of the teams that have been eliminated at this point I am left with Morocco, who lacked a goal, or Peru who gave it all on the court, they were delivered to such an extent that today nobody criticizes them.

Spain, Germany, England, Brazil itself, France that has even won its two games, or must improve their collective benefits to maintain their aspirations to lift the World Cup on July 15, and other teams such as Belgium and Croatia have already shown who is serious about this world.

From the individual performances to this minute there are several outstanding, with Cristiano Ronaldo leading the section of best players and leading scorer with 4, but mostly because three of those were scored to Spain, and that's the only ones of his team so far. CR7 continues on a streak and is looking for his sixth Golden Ball, Portugal will arrive until he says and nothing else.

Diego Costa, from Spain, Irving Lozano from Mexico, Luka Modric from Croatia, Denis Cherychef from Russia, Harry Kane from England, are at the moment the main stars of the World Cup in Russia.

There is still a way to the second round, but some advanced finals can be given in the round, nothing that the World Cup is a party that gets better and more interesting every day, especially because the big favorites are now closer to the rest, what do you think?
