    I am just too excited by the prospect of Uruguay and a Salah-led Egypt condemning Russia to a group stage exit despite being drawn in one of the softest groups imaginable. South Africa paved the road for hosts not getting out of the group stage, but they at least managed to beat France. The potential for Russian ignominy keeps dragging me back in.

    Not going to watch a second. I'm not sure how I feel about international (in the sense of countries playing each other) sporting events at all these days. I know too much now.

    What do you think we do with stray dogs in Britain? (Clue: Battersea Dog's Home isn't an all-inclusive doggy retirement resort)

    Ah, whataboutery.

    I’m well aware that dogs are killed in this country as a last resort (and support charities that work to try and avoid that eventuality) but I’m not aware that we slaughter them en masse for cosmetic reasons prior to major national events.

    Perhaps I missed that part of the Olympic build up?

    Russia did it before the 2014 Winter Games, too, apparently. As did Greece before the 2004 Summer Games:
