1994 was undoubtedly the best modern WC ever, but is 2018 the next best?

Cracking goals. Lots of surprises, like England getting out of the groups and Germany not doing so. VAR.

Great WC.

And above all, Croatia solid favorite to win the first WC for Eastern Europe. 0:)

1994 was not as good as 1998.
2002 was garbage.

There is something about the turn of the century, world cup 1998 and euro 2000 were the best in terms of great games, players and teams. Even football in the Sydney 2000 Olympics was spectacular.

Nope

1998 was better than 1994. OP obviously did not watch the 2006 world cup either

If I can rank all the World Cups I have watched:

1. France 98
2. Germany 06
3. Brazil 14
4. Russia 18 ~
5. USA 94
6. Japan/Korea 02
7. Italia 90
8. South Africa 10

Russia's group stage was not as good as Brazil's with it's fast flowing attacking football. We will see what the knockout stage provides us. Regardless I don't think this tournament has a chance of being better than Germany 06 let alone France 98

Thought 1998 was well rated. So many legends.
France 98 was brilliant.

Great matches in both the group stages and knockout phase. Also Croatia the underdog finishing 3rd place.

Only negative of the tournament is that the final was a white wash.

2014 wasn't great by any means but you simply can't get worse than 2010.

Aside from the vuvuzelas, the ball was horrible. So many fvcked up long passes because of the flight of the ball. As a result, the games were garbage. Hot garbage.
