We’ve all seen a boring game at a world cup. You know the type, both need a draw in the last group game or even worse both have already qualified = snoozefest.
Maybe both have already been knocked out rendering the last group game meaningless = zzzzzzzzzz
Either way, we are getting an early night. Luckily for us, not every game is like that and the World Cup often produces classic matches.
