Hey guys I have a good idea of what questions but I'd like to know how to collect money. I'm happy for people to send me twenty quid on PayPal but would some people prefer other payment options?

Belgium must have a good squad if Nainggolan can't get in it.

So Radja can't even get in a 28 man squad let alone the final 23. Places for Chadli and Januzaj though.

the draw was fixed by putting the hosts (france) and the holders (brazil) in group a and d or whatever before the draw so if both won their groups they couldnt meet until the final

they were open about it. it wasn't drawing hot and cold balls or something

At this stage I don't know why Spain are 7.6 to win when Germany and Brazil are 5.x.

Pretty sure I will be betting Spain. That team is unreal. Even if some of their GOATs have aged I’m still gonna be glued to every one of their matches.
