nah. Croatia is gonna kick England a*s

It seems so, though Croatia is tire , yes it has a good team, but they need more definition.

England are out, not really too much of a surprise, that defense was always going to be come undone at one point, Young is not a natural defender, and was not in the team for his defensive work anyway, Stones is still too raw and Walker is not even a centre back, he's a right back by trade and it shows. The team did a lot better than expected though, on paper this is one of weakest English sides we've ever had, yet they've done better than any other English side for decades, so hats off to them, they did our country proud.

 

That said the Ref was a bloody joke, the amount of free kick, throw-ins and corner decisions etc he got wrong was a absolute joke, and I don't mean just for England but both sides. Then again this is the same ref that controversially sent off Nani in the Champions League Semi-final in 2013, that ruined Man Utds Champions League chances, so should have expected him to be poor.

France is going to win this WC. Though, I want Croatia to win because I always side with the team that is usually weaker than its foe.

 

But, Brazil will always be the best team in the world and everyone knows this fact :th_yeah:

Yes, Brazil at the time of Ronaldinho, Roberto Carlos and Ronaldo was epic and it still is. It can never disappear.

 

Brazil will always have the Joga Bonito, the art of football, the dribbling, the giants of football because they love football and know how to handle a ball with their feet :wink: We always see the Joga Bonito during their matches :th_yeah:

France is going to lose against us. We are not weaker!. It's Croatia's first time in a World Cup finale and no one's taking the trophy away from us now. France will have a bad awakening tomorrow because they underestimate us like everyone else

 

2002 Brazil? yes. Today's Brazil? No

You should know that football is mostly luck. Skills and strategy comes second and can be handy. No team can always win the matches or else football will not be played anymore  :smug:  

 

In football, any team can win. But, all the teams always fall in levels that generally define them in terms of strength which are :  Average, Good, Very Good, and Great; Unless a team has proved that they're somewhat frequently getting far in a tournament and winning against at least a very good level team at the same time, this team will be ranked up.

 

Saying today's Brazil doesn't have the Joga Bonito means you don't watch them playing :P If any team thinks the same way like you do about Brazil when playing against them, their goal will be hit several times by Brazil :P Very high defense is required against Brazil to increase their chance in winning.

I do have to say this was the worst tournament I have ever seen. It was so weak. France won, yes, and I'm glad they did, but they didn't deserve to win, and honestly none of the teams shouldn't have won either, hell actually none of these teams shouldn't even been in the tournament.

They played so bad, so chaotic, it's like they weren't even playing world class football. It was like watching kids in the back alley playing football they way they think it works.

France today for example, played like they never even heard of this game. Really bizarre passes, positions, basically no defense.

Oh and let's not forget the referees. So many wrong decisions. I was actually surprised today's referee got it right with the penalty.

But only after watching that clip for a couple of good minutes and the even going back to be sure it was correct. Does he even know the rules of the game?

My favorite referees were the ones from the England-Croatia match. At one point the ball was out by at least a meter and no ref noticed. They just allowed the match to continue.

To tell you the true this WC2018 I thought would be boring, but it was not. This time was balance I believe there  was not a absolute powerful team why? I believe many team are process to change coming the new generation and many need some cleaning possible is the reason why we saw a weak futbol. Some never found the style to play as Argentina and Portugal. Some are weak as always. Possible some are about to grow up and be the next powerful teams.

 

About the referee let's say   accept the VAR or always be with the human error. I want to believe that the referees judge another way and the world another way. There are the rules for the world, then judgement for the referee.

That was not a penalty. man should the players cut their arms off? it was a natural movement. look at the france player his hands go down too. Perisic was just unlucky enought to get hit by the ball in short distance. Do you know the rules? this was not intentionally

besides there was no other france player behind Perisic and would have been cleared by subasic or vida

It was hands and it was the right call. It doesn't matter if it was intentional or not. The only exception to the rule is when your hands are entirely by your side and you get hit in the arm. And even then the referee might still count it as hands.

Here the referee had to judge it was propose or not in the end he judged that the player was doing to propose.

I agree, I really did not care for the world cup before it started, the last few have been a let down for me, and I don't think I've even watched the finals. But this time around I felt it was the world cup for the underdogs, (though one of the favourites did end up winning it.) The likes of Croatia, Japan, Mexico, Sweden etc. all got people talking, Germany were knocked out in the group stages, Argentina lost to France, Brazil got knocked out by Belgium, this world cup has been a cup of surprises, even if it wasn't the best football, you saw the underdogs fight till the end.

 

The referee's were very hit and miss, (more miss than hit though) we had some like the complete jokes that officiated the Croatia v England game that should have relied on VAR because they were pathetically bad, and then others that relied on VAR too much for every decision and even then made poor decisions. Today's referee was somewhere in between, yeah the freekick decision was a bad one, but this is what players do, they go down with minimal contact, we saw Croatia do the same thing. (even one comical one against England where the player moved their leg towards the England defender and then trip.) and I think the penalty decision was correct, Perasic moved his hand towards the ball, it looked deliberate to me, so it's a penalty, but there are those that don't think that is the case, my brother doesn't think it was, It's going to be a topic of discussion for a months and maybe even years to come.

you do realize the ball came off the french players back right? he had no time to react. The french player who jumped  up half a metre in front of him. What the hell could he have done in that moment?

It was not a penalty
