This isn’t a great segue from that, but hello from Paris. Flew out of Dulles last night and landed here 8 am local. Didn’t really sleep on plane so will be crashing as soon as can get into the hotel room. Visiting my youngest who is on a semester abroad here.  45 and rain. Doesn’t matter - walking around Paris in the rain is awesome. First time here (hell, first time in Europe).

happy thanksgiving week to you all. Even the weird trolls. Well, not that snowman guy.  
 

was fun to read the upper air disco in the long range thread just now. More of that good news please and thank you.  

Happy T-day!  Be safe and have a great trip.

You just never know at this World Cup... surprised again to see a 0-0 score between Croatia and Morroco... looks like it was a boring game offensively.

Japan beats Germany behind two 2nd half goals 2-1

We have a legit shot at beating England Friday. This tourney has had many surprises.

Team looks different with him in the line up.

Now we need Wilson, and Orlov back.

Hopefully Backstrom at some point.

This was encouraging news from practice yesterday: https://novacapsfans.com/2022/11/23/t-j-oshie-set-to-return-dmitry-orlov-participates-in-morning-skate-nicklas-backstrom-participates-in-non-contact-jersey-notes-from-wednesdays-morning-skate/amp/

Wales getting some luck so far this game... Iran has hit the left post and right post a few minutes ago... and had a goal ruled out by VAR for offside.  60th minute and its 0-0 still... US would benefit greatly if it stayed 0-0

Good news certainly.  Let’s hope it holds.

US pretty much forced into having to win against England after Iran's win.  A loss of any kind would basically kill their chances to advance IMO -- England would be guaranteed to advance with a win at 6 points.  Iran would be at 3 points with game against US upcoming.  Wales is at 1 point with game against England upcoming.  Wales will be desperate for a win against England to have any chance. but I can't really see Wales beating England.  Then again, I didn't really give or see Iran a real chance at a win against Wales, so who knows.  Iran would simply need a tie against the US to advance if England defeats the US. 

Let's just say that England wins later by a score of 2-1:

England 6

Iran 3

US 1

Wales 1

 

England is guaranteed to advance to R16 (basically any kind of win against the US and they advance to R16).  Iran has a GD of -2.  US would have a GD of -1.  Wales has a GD of -2. 

 

If England beats Wales or ties Wales, Wales is eliminated.  Wales now has to beat England to have any chance of advancing.  A US loss or tie to Iran would eliminate the US.  If the US beats Iran and the Wales beats England, US would have to have a better GD to advance

US should beat Iran though, right?? Obviously a draw or win today is much preferred, but as long as they don’t get crushed against England and then beat Iran, they should advance on goal differential?
