    Who cares?

    • Anmol Malhotra

      Me.. Die hard Spain fan!!

    • AnArcticMonkey

      A lot of people considering football (soccer) is the most popular sport in the world. But alas I forgot the AppStore should revolve around “Ara Rezaee” /s

  • Allez les bleus !

    Go France, of course 🙂

    • AnArcticMonkey

      I think France will surprise a few this year, many people have written them off because the squad has too many players with big egos. I’m worried for England (me), in a tough group!

  • Fede777

    It’s not for the World Cup only, it’s for all futbol related news and scores.

    Is it better than the FIFA app?

    • felixtaf

      For Scores, try Forza Football addicts. One of the best, its free and no ads.

      • Fede777

        Gona try it along with this one and the FIFA app, all 3, and see which one I like the most. UI is really important for me, and the FIFA is very well designed, besides being the official one.

      • felixtaf

        Am sure you will love Forza. Its well designed too..

      • Fede777

        ESPN app so far, Argentina’s leagues are buried under 3 menues, I need an account for favorites, so uninstalled.

      • AnArcticMonkey

        One of the hidden great apps, best designed sports app I have seen and it literally has 99% of professional football leagues!

      • felixtaf

        Yes… Also, its free with no annoying ads, Accurate, no crashes and well designed. Even had replays of popular league goals (although its missing now, probably due to copyright). I love this app and I recommend it to all Football (Soccer) fans!

      • Victor

        Thanks! Amazing app. Vai Corinthians!!

      • felixtaf

  • Dani Hayes

  • abdullah575

  • Arsanny Lintang

  • oioile
