I haven’t rated the matches, but probably Portugal-Spain in the groups and France-Argentina in the knockouts.

Here is the preliminary list: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls022208571/

For the time being I am including the last four matches, assuming they will be rated high enough to make the list, should they fail to score once we watch them then England vs. Tunisia, Croatia vs Denmark, Belgium vs Panama and Peru vs Denmark are on the waiting list. However I think the final math is a forced inclussion even if it turns out to rate below 6.4, let's hope that's not the case.

Out of all matches rated 6.4 I'm leaving Tunisia vs. England out because it has less votes than the others. I have to leave one out or the list would include 36 matches.

One small point of conflcit for me is that currently there is not a single match involving Denmark, Australia or Peru. Ideally all teams would have at least one match in the poll so their fans could vote them. However none of the games they played have the minimum rating.

Do you think I should make a little trap and change two matches to include these three teams?

Denmark-Croatia was fairly dramatic, but not enough I guess.

Currently that match has 6.2, the same as Brazil vs. Switzerland, the 35th place in the list. I kept the other match because it has more votes, but I'll change it to add Denmark to the poll.

That would leave Australia and Peru as the only countries without a place in the poll, but all their matches remain with a low score, and it's unlikely they'll grow enough at this point.

While the votes may change the rating of some matches, this should be ready.

My vote is either for Mexico vs. Germany or for Spain vs. Morocco (which was extra exciting due to the combinations with the Portugal vs. Iran that was played at the same time).

Thanks.

The link at the begining of the thread is leading to another poll.

Could it be corrected?

I'm no direct soccer-fan.
But I was on the side Croatia at the final match because I like underdogs.It would have been nicer, if they had won the championship. ;D
Congratulation.
