Review Of The Envío World Cup Competition

December 07, 2022

 

We are now eighteen days into the World Cup, with just eleven more sleeps until one lucky national team lifts the trophy.

We now know the Quarter Finalists and this is the first time we have had a break in play to review the competition – putting the politics to the side for now, the football has been fantastic.

Of course, the competition has been hotting up in the Envío Latin American sweepstake. As some of you will know from our previous post, being the Latin American specialists, we decided to draw teams that represented the region and the Envío team have had mixed fortunes.

Sean Stokes – Ecuador – Out

Sean was first to drop out of the competition last week when Ecuador were defeated by Senegal. By losing out on their chance to play England in the Round of 16, Sean saved himself a conflict of interest.

Mille Easton – Mexico – Out

Millie had Mexico and they were the next to go after a disappointing campaign, being narrowly edged out on goal difference.

Peter Claus – Costa Rica – Out

Peter didn’t hope for much when he drew Costa Rica and was not surprised when a 4-2 defeat to Germany sent the Central Americans home.

Bradley Allen – Uruguay – Out

Uruguay, the perennial ‘dark horses’, were a big disappointment for Bradley, finishing third behind Portugal and South Korea.

Chris Gaduzo – Spain – Out

We bent the rules for Chris and gave him Spain, as he was born in Gibraltar. They started like a train with a 7-0 win, but penalties left Chris with mixed emotions!

Scott Easton – Brazil – Still In

Let’s face it, Scott landed on his feet when the teams were drawn. Brazil have largely coasted through to the quarter finals, next up they play Croatia on Friday.

Josh Sweeney – Argentina – Still In

After crying in his tea when Argentina lost their first game to Saudi Arabia, Josh’s hopes have been considerably raised and Messi’s men face the Dutch next, which is also on Friday.

 

Tension is mounting in the Envío office as the two South American giants are currently on course to meet in the Semi Finals, will it be Scott or Josh?
