If the finale is between England and France, i won't be watching it. The huge level of boringness might kill me .



In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.

He also said stupid things about Brazil after the match. He seemed offended that Brazilians expected Brazil to trump Belgium. I mean, does he know a thing about football? Any fan of the big football nations (Spain, Germany, Argentina, etc) would expect them to beat Belgium because these fans are used to winning and stuff, while Belgium is a newcomer in this territory. 

He was such a hypocrite in the comment you quoted too... France is definitely not “playing like Panama”. Not to mention, if anyone “played like Panama” it was Belgium, who defended the whole second half against Brazil. They also got lucky against Japan. If the goalkeeper hadn’t utterly failed in their first goal they wouldn’t even be there. In the end, Belgium got lucky to even get to the semifinals, while France carved their way there being the better team on both round of 16 and quarterfinals. Courtois hasn’t any rights to criticize France.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

France played so much better than Belgium yesterday. Only reason they didn't score more was simply because Giroud was horrible up front and their satisfaction with a one goal lead. Had some absolutely brilliant touches in Belgium's penalty area.

Mbappe's a jerk though. His antics during the Uruguay game weren't that bad but he truly showed his true colours yesterday. Hope it's because he's still young 'Cause otherwise he's an absolutely brilliant player.

Courtois is an arrogant cunt and this is coming form a Chelsea fan.Belgium got to the semi's through an own goal and ref bias.They defended for their lives in the second half of that game,now has the balls to talk shit about defending.I am glad as fuck they lost.

England getting to the final 4 is an achievement in itself. I hope they can make it all the way. I think they have got this match. Hope they don't burn out but it's all good.

Understandably, Croatia's midfield is terrifying and they have a man on top who can hit the goal (unlike Giroud, Toivonen and some other, tall strikers in the WC), as well as good wingers. Their weakness is a fairly aged squad, all in all, which limits their physical capacity a little bit, and they lack some pace on their defensive line (but make up for it by being incredibly good at reading the play and great positioning).

On paper, it should be an even match, more or less. It's hard to tell since England has yet to face proper opposition with any stakes (the Belgium match was favorable to lose after all), and Croatia has been brilliant but were run into the ground by Russia and their insane physical play. I honestly have no idea who wins, but I think Croatia has a slight edge, if only for having a more experienced crew and generally having a better track record in both WC and EC competitions.

I wonder how my mate Paul is doing; he's from London but lives and owns a tavern in Split, Croatia! Probably watching from home, curtains drawn and volume low!

Yeah, not everybody's going to play like Japan and continue to attack when they have the lead.



Oh, hey. Loads of stuff going on atm, I forgot to come here. Rip 2 points from yesterday's match but at least I can try to get some today (and obviously get it wrong).

England 1-0 Croatia

I wanna believe in Croatia, but I don't.



Pretty wild match thus far, no idea who is going to win.



Feels like England's defenders are sleeping. I hope they make it through. I had a bet with a few friends last month that England would win the whole cup.
