I don't know if I'm being a prisoner of the moment, but this is the most entertaining set of matches I've ever seen.

Sterling was offside, Dele was not. Sterling didn’t attempt to play the ball, so it was not an offsides.

They played above their ability. I hope that young AM goes to play in one of the bigger leagues.


Their striker reminds me of Brian McBride one of my favorite USMNT player.

Neymar appeared to suffer anaphylactic shock, presumably from a severe egg allergy; however, after video review no eggs made contact.

It is pathetic. It’s not like they lost to Mexico or Japan. They lost to the third ranked team in the world who may very well win this whole thing. A newsflash to Brazil fans: You do not have the best team in the world. Deal with it.

Brazil doesn't even deserve to be ranked top 10. As a team they suck.

I'll be pulling for Croatia (though I wanted to see England win it)... but a friend of mine predicted 3-0 France and I'm afraid it's a real possibility.

Would love to see Croatia beat the French. But in all honesty, I think they have about a 1 in 10 shot. Just don't see it happening. But I'll be pulling for them.

I think if this game is played 10 times France wins seven. I don’t think France is incredibly better than Croatia and I think they have been playing fairly ugly Soccer.

It’s going to be a very defensive game imo

I think France has easily been the best team in the tournament.

I think it's beautiful that an England team full of Spurs choked in a semi-final. Alli has been **** all tournament. They should have brought Wilshire instead. And they should have brought on Wélé instead of Vardy if they wanted to break Croatia's defense down.

This isn’t a huge mismatch. Croatia is at the end of a golden age of top shelf footballers, and they have arguably the best player in the match in Modric. I think this will be a one goal game either way.

Every elimination game they've played has gone 120 minutes. They're gonna be dead tired. Also, I don't think Modric is better than Pogba or Kante. They're different players but both are extremely high quality mid-fielders. That isn't even counting Griezemann or M'bappe.

This is my concern as well. How much do they have left in the tank? Not only that, they’re on one day less rest. Talent-wise I think the French have the edge. But Croatia has surprised this tourney. They came in with very low expectations considering they very nearly didn’t qualify. So they’re playing with house money.

Croatia hasn't really surprised me. This has been a **** tournament in regards to the top teams. They've taken advantage of that. Not that Croatia isn't a talented team, they are.
