I thought the World Cup was a sell-out?

Worth noting that the England game had issues with entrances and ticket machines.

Could be fair to assume the same for the Senegal game as the commentators are describing the stadium filling up more.

Also worth noting that the stadium England played in does not have that capacity. It was originally planned to be increased but somewhere down the line they changed their mind. Like with most things in the World Cup.

You may be right. Just went on what the BBC commentators said. But it certainly was no where near full.

I didn't watch England game but the atmosphere in the other games has been dreadful. You look at the Dutch normally they would have a full stand in orange making noise. It sounds like they have got an artificial sound track over the pictures the crowd doesnt seem to be following the game at all

Noise wise it was the same but I would imagine the atmosphere was better due to the nature of the game.

I'm listening to this commentator about the ground only being three quarters full but aside from the middle section having empty seats (like Wembley's always does) it seems pretty full.
 
Itv have said the official attendance as 41722. Official capacity 41100. Champion has said that it looks 75% full. ;)

The noise is quite clearly been pumped in.
 
I agree that there's not much happening. And no doubt, there's some crap bands in there. But, I disagree that it could be classed as a 'big crowd'. It sounds like FIFA computer game noise. They are adding noise to make it appear bigger than it is. My opinion, no data to back that up :)

I did think the crowd sounded like those lockdown games where they played crowd noises. It just doesn’t sound right.
