1:14 pm
a dream start into the tournament let's be honest five zero win that's that's fantastic and also you're a guy getting three points against egypt is great but in terms of performance portugal and spain showed why there's such top teams why the world cup favorites as well and we really have to keep an eye out for them that's right now advance through the group stages the knockout stages rather much is still coming out today and anything we should look out for in particular yeah there's another world cup favorite playing right now actually france is facing australia and that's really be interesting to see how they fare in their first game what form are they and can they really be a top candidate to win the world cup later on argentina. face a surprise team from the urals iceland i think a whole continent is also hoping that ice and get far and show great performance again because they just had a fantastic atmosphere on and off the pitch through plays denmark and in the evening kray should take some nigeria which i think will be the closest game of the day ok emily russia's from the sports many thanks for that we'll be looking forward
