Uruguay vs France

The first surprise in Nizhny Novgorod was that there were not any media shuttles.  In spite of the literature to the contrary, I am not in a media hotel…great.  No worries, you can take public transportation, long walks with equipment, but actually not a bad trip to the stadium.  One of the interesting things that you see in the background is typical Russian architecture.

The match started out with Uruguay being very aggressive, actually looked like they had a chance to defeat France, that was until:

Although Uruguay challenged a bit after this, a keeper miscue gave France a second goal and it was really match done at that point.  There were still some interesting moments like the one after Mbappe claimed horrible injury and the Uruguay players took exception:

I don’t think that this was about where they would have dinner after the match!
