Fancy KDB and hazard to step up and beat France tonight
Fancy France myself.Having more tactical nous will be the difference I reckon but I'm hoping Belgium win.They've showed more bollocks and been better to watch and I'd like to see that rewarded.
I thought France were excellent tonight, they played some excellent football and showed far too much nous in a high pressure game for Belgium. Cynacism plays a massive part in all high pressure games and they used it when they needed to. Belgium played their part and could easily have had a goal on the night but it just felt like France were agonisingly out of reach from about 35 minutes in.
Delighted Belgium are gone, Hazard lifting the world cup would ruin football for me forever.
Bad prediction no 628 of this World Cup.
Lukaku did not get a sniff. With all their talent and I know they did against Japan but playing likes of Chadli and Fellani will cost you in long run.
Just can’t imagine an England France final. Will be very surreal if they do it. Been disappointed slight in Croatia so maybe they have a big one in their locker
I was surprised to see both Felliani and Chadli start and even more surprised to see Felliani stay on till the 80th minute. I understand he can be effective but if he's playing, why not play to his strengths? Short sharp passing around wouldn't exactly be his forte?
I thought Muneir was a big miss for Belgium through suspension. Meant they had to change a few players around.
Had To look up where’s both Witsel and Carrasco where playing now. Both in freakin China.
Witsel in particular should be playing at highest level. Played in Russia and China and approaching 30. Feels like a wasted talent.
England deservedly one up at the break.
Keeper caught out badly for the goal though.
England have nothing to fear from Croatia, as long as they don't go too crazy it's a stroll to the final. Sit in and hit them on the break.
They're going to win this thing outright!
Harry Kane is as good as any South American when it comes to going down after a tap
I can see them winning tonight but getting past France, Ed.
Croatia are very disappointing tonight.
Croatia unlucky not to be winning now with the shot at off the post. England had there chances first half, France will beat either of them
Pickford doing very well this tournament.
Dele Ali was dire
Ali was a fcukin liability tonight
Better team by a mile won tonight
England had 1 shot on target that was the free kick and after half time they were chasing shadows
And they scored from it!
100% success rate...unbeatable stat.
Yet they lost to a team who needed 8 shots on target to score 2 goals?
I'm no statistician/mathematician but I'm pretty sure England were robbed.
They were desperately unlucky to come up against a decent side in the knockout stages...and even more unlucky not to be able to blame their exit on the lotto of penalties.
Thought If England had went at them more, they could have sealed if before Croatia came back into it and deservely went through.
England though have a Young team, if it doesn’t go to their heads and it might, they will have a great chance at the Euros in two years time.
Chamberlain would have been a big plus for them to come on or even a fully fit Lallana. Midfield options on the bench very poor.
I just don't see it, the players they have aren't good enough now and I can't see that many of them getting much better, Pickford and Alli maybe, no one else.
The way i see it is momentum in football is most underrated aspect of them all and they were blessed to have it handed to them. Similarly to Russia starting a tournament with 2 shit teams and the option potentially to pick your second round appointment is a once in a life time opportunity. When the dust settles on this they will have lost to the only decent teams they played and half the squad will go back to being sub's at their clubs.
If you thought they were robbed I'd love to know what game you watched
The point of the 1 shot was that in almost 130 minutes they mustered 1 shot on target and that was In the 5th minute so over 2 hours of Jack shit after that so no need to be any mathematician or statistician to see that with eyes
They were played off the park in the second half and were hanging on
Croatia fully deserved that tonight and no football's not coming home
Sarcasm me thinks
