What are you busy with?

France did really well today. I am going to cheer for them. Belgium seemed a little disorganized or something. Also, they lost in the same fashion they missed the two goals against the Japanese. French ain't the Japanese though. Very solid defense by French as well. A couple of free kicks that weren't called right at the French box didn't really help Belgium either.

Mbappe has gotten some mad feet. It was nice to see. Holding on to that ball was unsportsmanlike and overall pretty lame on his part though.

Lukaku didn’t show up for Belgium. He has to demand the ball and if it’s not coming then expand his zone on the field.

I agree, wasn't his best game.

Indeed. Especially after the equalizer, it seems like they have fallen apart.

Luls. One shot on goal for England. The Russians played better against Croatia, to be honest. Good for Croatia. I feel like France will pick them apart though.

I think if Kane or Lingard had scored their chances in the first half, England would have won tonight. But that’s football! Huge credit to Croatia, they were better and deserved it. They showed real grit to come through their third extra time game in a row...amazing effort really. England can hold their head high. The draw helped us a lot, but a young squad did well and will have learned a lot. I hope Croatia give France a shock in the final!

Yeah- that kick was awesome. I only caught the last 20 mins of regulation - England looked dead.
just a foil for me today, thanks

Missed the whole fudge but I need Croatia to win just so I can be right.
