On Wednesday, it was confirmed that the stopper's tournament was over, although the goalkeeper has taken to Twitter to thank Maaloul for allowing him to realise a lifelong dream.

France vs. Denmark - 6/26/18 World Cup Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction

26 days ago   |   By Sportschatplace

The final matchday of group C pits group leader France against Denmark from the Luzhniki Arena in Moscow.
France comes into this matchup already having booked their spot in the round of 16 with a second straight win, their most recent coming in the form of a 1-0 win over Peru on Thursday to sit at 6 points looking down on the rest of Group C. Kylian Mbappe gave Les Bleus the lead 34 minutes into the match with a tap in off of a deflected shot, and that's all the French would need to seal the victory. It wasn't easy however, as France has to endure 56% possession from the Peruvians, but...

Opposition scouting report: How can Nigeria beat Iceland?

26 days ago   |   By ESPN

Iceland became the smallest nation to qualify for the World Cup after a remarkable few years, and the heroics of Euro 2016 proved that they can do it against some of the world's top sides.
They held Argentina in their opener, showcasing their qualities of spirit, work ethic and synergy, and represent a really tough test for Nigeria in the Super Eagles' second group game.
Their main player, Gylfi Sigurdsson, may only just be coming back from injury, but it's unlikely to faze Iceland too much.
