Hello and welcome to day six of the World Cup! Today sees the last group, group H, get their first games on the board, with David Ospina’s Colombia taking on Japan and then Robert Lewandowski and Poland taking on Senegal.

Elsewhere, group A sees their second set of games as Russia takes on Egypt. A win for Russia will probably be enough to see them through to the next round, after their thumping of Saudi Arabia last week, while Mohamed Elneny’s Egypt need to get full points to even hope to finish in the top half of the group.

Writing these threads brings up a question. How are you watching these games? Are you watching them on TV, or on streams? At home? At pubs? I’m mostly watching on DVR’d repeat at night, since the early games start at 5AM and I’m at work during the other game times; I can kind of keep half an eye on things, but I can’t watch in any detail. Do the early kickoffs impact your ability to watch? If not, you’re lucky.

So, once 5AM rolls around, or 8AM or whatever, crack open your favorite morning beverage, turn on your watchin’ device of choice, and enjoy the day’s fun and games!
