Not exactly the odd-goal-in-five match I was hoping for. Meh

Goodbye, De Bruyne, must have been playing in the final, but that is football, not always the best who wins Frown

there is no honor at their win. very bad behavior from all the France players.

Mbappe overdid it in the end, sure, but that’s hardly “all the France players”.
He needs to stop it, though, that’s certainly annoying and he’s talented enough not to resort to this kind of tricks.

Overall a nice and well-balanced game, with plenty of scoring occasions on both sides and two great stops by the goalkeepers. Belgium pressed hard in the first 10 minutes and then again in the last 20, but France kinda dominated the rest, so a deserved victory imo. France just seemed more solid, especially in the mid-field.

I wish it would have been the final, as those were my 2 favorite teams (after the ghost of Germany vanished from the rooster)...

France deserved the win, more shots, more shots on goal and dangerous plays. They didn’t play into Belgium’s fast counter attack game and let them have the ball. Think it was smart.
Mbappe did some time wasting at the end (like all teams do…), not like he was diving all over the place, don’t think it was that bad.

WTH, that Mbappe pass!!!!!!! Sealed Lips Sealed Lips

Edit: France with a proper striker instead of Giroud would have scored a few more. If only they had Benzema…

Benzema never did well with the national team, though, and Giroud, although he has yet to score in this competition, does tremendous work both in offense and defense.
I feel bad for him, though. He reminds me of Guivarc’h, France’s stricker in 1998 (when France won its one and only world cup), who also didn’t score in all the competition and was quickly forgotten, even though technically he too was (is) a world champion.

Hope Giroud scores in the finale Laughing

Guivarc’h moved to Newcastle after that World Cup.  He was…not good.  Then again, sometimes things just don’t work out for a player at a certain club, but he never showed anything to make me think he was just unfortunate.

This is what he does now:

Yeah, that was something and a half wasn’t it! Maybe not a thrilling game, but definitely not boring.

1-1 Game is on fire. As a neutral, super exciting stuff.

Unlucky England but Croatia were the better team after the half.


2-1 Croatia

England are going home after a 3/4th playoff against Belgium.

France - Croatia is the Final two.

Wonderful game and tough luck for the three lions. They might not have won but they made their country believe again. England dominated the first half and kane should have scored the shot that hit the pole and ice it. After the Croatian goal, Croatia took control and it was jusr a matter of time before they score again.

Sorry Intense Degree

But good campaign by England, Croatia was just better with that midfield. Crazy how they were able to outplay the english side on the second half and extra time, even with all those minutes in their legs. Happy for Modric, what a player!

Dont think they’ll have much chance but crazier things have happened, look at the Euro final from 2016 Laughing

England and Belgium destined to meet in games that dont matter Smile

Predictions:

England - Belgium 2-4
France - Croatia 3-1
