Do you think it’s been a good World Cup?


13th July 2018

ENGLAND’S fantastic World Cup run has gripped the country and made an exciting tournament even more thrilling (and nail-biting!).

So many countries and players have shone at this year’s tournament, so we thought we’d put together the First News Team Of The Tournament. To see our choices, you’ll have to pick up a copy of First News – but while you’re here, you can tell us which players you’d pick for your own team of the tournament, right here in the comments!

Plus, we want to know if you think it’s been a good World Cup. Has VAR made a difference? Let us know!

Yes, definitely! Although England is out, we still secured 3rd place and England reaching semi-finals hasn't happened since 1990!

First to comment :P

And all the teams with the stars (Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar etc.) had been out long before, even the reigning champions Germany as well :D

I think the World Cup was amazing this year because England was so close to the Final and many unexpected countries were winning, despirate to win

Yes it has been an amazing world cup. Even though England did not get through to the final, the team still tried their best.

floppyfish · 3 years ago

Yes we have come further than we have in 28 years and England played really well.

kawaiigirl · 3 years ago

It has been an amazing #WorldCup!
We got to the Semi Finals, which is really good!
Maybe we didn't win, but we can still celebrate that we got to the Semi Finals!

tintin13 · 3 years ago

I think England have played really well and I think we should be happy that we got this far in the world cup and I definitely think I wont be able to get to the semi finals of the world cup when I am 19!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First to comment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

_louis.y · 3 years ago

Definitely yes! The last time we reached the semi finals was in 1990 so it's been a great world cup!

galactic12 · 3 years ago

Yes because England tried their best and stayed calm.

Is anyone else here- this computer says 0 comments?!?!

fox64 · 3 years ago

Yes, I do.

nymphadora · 3 years ago

I supported Sweden and they lost in the quarter finals so I was sad!

honhon88 · 3 years ago

I think yes because it was good for England to get through to the semi - finals and that was enough I think and a lot of our games were interesting as well.

redpikachu · 3 years ago

I think it has been a brilliant world cup because all the teams have done so well in it and even when England lost it was still a great achievement to make it to the semi-finals.And even though I don't usually take an interest in football the world cup has had me on the edge of my seat for the entire duration so far. Well done!!!! ^_^

rinlen432 · 3 years ago

I have watched the England VS Croatia match and also the England VS Belgium match and England lost both of them so I am a little sad about that.
Before those matches might have been good but so sad that I didn't watch them.

sambrophy · 3 years ago

I think it has been a good World Cup because everyone being a part of it were really supportive towards each other.

tiger101 · 3 years ago

I think it's been a good world cup because we got to the semi finals

bobfm · 3 years ago

VAR has made a difference because it has been used in every game and if the referee missed something he can ask the VAR referees I think all clubs in the world should use it!

garstanger · 3 years ago

It’s been crazy

kitten26 · 3 years ago

Yes coz lots of exitement, no because england failed in semi final ^_^

papa435 · 3 years ago

first comment

floppyfish · 3 years ago

Yes we have got further than we have in 28 years and we played really well. We also came ahead of many really good teams, like Germany, Argentina and Uruguay.

ravenclaw1 · 3 years ago

Of course it was and France won. Still England came forth and I'm happy. If the players from England are happy that they at least got to the semi-finals then it's still a victory for England!

sprinkle10 · 3 years ago

world cup was amazing. well done for all the players that took part.

tesarous · 3 years ago

I think that this world cup has been amazing.It was full of surprises such as Germany getting knocked out or England making it to the semi finals for the first time since 1990 or Croatia making it to the finales for the first time ever.

stargalaxy · 3 years ago

We've got so far, and that's great.?

hobbes123 · 3 years ago

Yes & I was in Paris when France ?? won the World Cup!!!! It was a great World Cup even though England ??????? got knocked out ?

jeff27 · 3 years ago

I think it was a fantastic Fifa World Cup.
My team would be: 4-3-3
Pickford as goalkeeper
Walker, Trippier, Mina and Laxalt as defenders
Pogba, Modrić and Lingard as midfielders
Messi, Ronaldo and kane as fowards

radha1 · 3 years ago

It was a great world cup - and England made a GRAND they got to the place they did!!!

An emotional end - but they're all young so by the next world cup, they'll be stronger & hungrier for the top spot!!!


aquaquazar · 3 years ago

NO!!!!!!! because there was a bias with the referee (I think) and VAR shows that Antonie Griezmann
DIVED! in the world cup final. That penalty wasn't fair as well because both players arms (Matuidi and Perisic)went down when Ivan Persic hand balled the ball and the rules of handball state that it is only a foul when the handball was DELIBERATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

roseydog · 3 years ago

I think that we did well because we are the youngest team.

ZENCE40 · 3 years ago

Yes!! We came fourth!!

nostrils · 3 years ago

I think we did fantastic considering how we've dobe recently.

hass8 · 3 years ago

Definitely! We did very good as a 4.5 rated team! Our team has scored the most goals and have had an amazing manager! Congrats to Gareth Southgate and the whole England team. Football will soon come home!

hc-524219 · 3 years ago

Obvi! It has been one of the best World Cup matches since 1990! We got third place! Of course we might have won the World Cup only once but who cares? We can always do better next time. People who said that it was not a good match, it is a high possibility that they are from another country.

cherrybomb · 3 years ago

we got to the semifinals and we are the 3rd best team in the world

agentlord · 3 years ago

It was a EXTREMELY ROCKING World Cup for England
Also, Jordan Pickford could of done better but was no match for Kovacic's header-pass to Mandzukic - a bounce and a boom- and a curving strike home which slammed shut all chances for England to make it to the finals against France after that life-saving save from Hugo Lloris in the semi final vs Belgium thanks to Umtiti who headered the ball in the back of the net

Also I think it should off-side for Croatia when they scored but Mandzukic was closer to the ball sothere was absoultly No chance for England

Still I think it was a SUPERB World Cup!!!!!!!!!!!!

dogsrock16 · 3 years ago

it was great fun watching!!

shreddeddo · 3 years ago

of course! England got to the semis
Most of the time var was good but in England v Tunisia it was really bad

shreddeddo · 3 years ago

also in the Panama match it was not that great

xx_puppys · 3 years ago

This World Cup has been a blast for our team!
Firstly, since the Euros 2 years ago we have gained a better team with goals going out of the roof! Getting to the semi finals was a ginormous challenge, although we didn't win our very young team did us proud! :)

mimpi123 · 3 years ago

I don't care about football.

sootysweep · 3 years ago

i think it has been a great world cup. England has played their hardest and done very well! It was really good.

daipal · 3 years ago

Yes, even though I don't like football that much I enjoyed the World Cup!!!!?

ti-10 · 3 years ago

I think it has been a great world cup! I am a girl but I am kind of into football. I do hate Germany and when they won I did cry, but the main thing is that everyone worked so hard and tried and tried again. It's the trying that counts!

kingslayer · 3 years ago

Yes! Of course they have had a good world cup even though they secured 4th because they beat some really good teams and have made their country proud.

unidist · 3 years ago

yes! I loved this years world cup! England played really well!

ys001 · 3 years ago

I think we could have got further. We got so far and we were so close to being in the final. We could have beat France ⚽️????

rosiem · 3 years ago
