I hope Belgium wins tomorrow, so Griezmann, Lucas and Lemar can go on holidays and return fresh to Atlético Madrid as soon as possible.

A new season is coming with champion league final in Atlético Stadium!

I wouldn't worry as France haven't broken much sweat winning each game by the odd goal and boring us all to death! 
Right?

I am far far from a football expert, but I guess that France-Argentina was a good game wasn't it ?

For you.

The only fact that Japan was winning 2-0 almost all the game doesn't speak well about Belgium. Happily they managed to recover. They also just defended against Brazil the second half and were in very real danger of loose, luckily to Belgium, Brazilian strikers failed all their very clear chances...

Belgium is very good but very inconsistent in the attack-defence balance. France is more serious as a team in that, despite the fact Argentina almost equalise at the very last second...

Let's see if Belgium manages to do a complete good game tonight.
You might get lucky, now and then

There is a good chance of an inedit final against two teams that never played one... Belgium-Croatia...

Great game, once France substituted all their best players and thought they had the game wrapped up.  However, only Argentina wanted to play football.  Sorry but I'm not a fan of France's style at all.  They'll probably beat England in the final though.

That could so easily have been Japan v Russia

I think France v England

May Croatia win. They actually play (attractive) football.

England should have finished them off in the first half while they had the chance - Croatia were rank rotten.  However they let them into the game in the 2nd half and they showed how they can really play and bossed the midfield. England simply weren't good enough when Croatia turned it on.

Watching the game yesterday I was thinking how bizarre would be this England team reaches the final having a low quality team in comparison with others that they had, having people like Shearer, Sheringam, Gascoigne, Beckham etc in mind...

This England was no way better than many others that failed, but in general this world cup has been very low on quality in general.
