You guys were wonderful.
If on June 10th someone claimed that if the best win a team had all tournament was Sweden and that they also had a wonderful WC, the entire world would have rolled their eyes.

Agreed on your next post that Croatia deserve more respect. However, for someone that doesn't rate Brazil and claim it's only based on history you give an unusual amount of weight to the Argentina result. That didn't really surprise me, their defending 7 are a dumpster fire.

Tbf I don't rate Brazil right now in 2018 and I would argue their results of the last 4 years of international football back this up. As we see, things in football change quickly.

Also, some of the silly rhetoric that Brazil had by far the best players in the World perhaps made me overreact.

Monte finally out at Chelsea. What a clustereff it is over there. Horrible timing in this firing and a disastrous transfer history.

I apologize if someone already posted this, but I’ve avoided posting here until I could finally watch the semis on dvr. I had to miss both due to work issues. There needs to be a global law that all business shuts down during the World Cup (except for bars, pubs and restaurants, of course). But the Croatia World Cup song had to be the difference between them and England:

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FgMi9xsY-Ew#

I almost feel like I need to hedge my France bet, because how can a team with that as its song possibly lose?

Dude, sorry for that post from a few days ago. Sports discussions get me heated, and are a big weakness of mine. While you!re wrong, that was uncalled for.

Thank you. I'm just like you. Its all good, even though what you said was bad. I'm

Seriously their is no one current dominant force (by this I mean an international footie team with a track record like the Golden State Warriors). Ironically, were it Argentina playing Sunday perhaps they could make an argument with 3 straight second place finished in the last three major tourneys.

2022 dates announced. Nov 21 through Dec 18. Does it make since to reduce the number of days in the tournament? Its rough enough on the players as is.

I truly hope they don't expand it to 48 participants. Heck, I'm the first whose nature it'd be to indulge in watching even more matches, but enough is enough. We'd get so much more boring and probably more third games in the group stage that could be "arranged".

I don't see it. Statistically maybe, those games count as draws, but in any other definition the team that wins the shootout wins the game.

It’s a small Island. Not much by the way of traveling.

Going to be interesting though. This time Lovren, Modric and Varane are going to play a World Cup Final after having played a CL Final the same year. It’s very common for players to go all the way in a WC or a continental tournament right after a CL Final campaign. Ronaldo, Messi, Di Maria, Griezemann have done it recently.
Then three weeks later the season starts again.

The World Cup hangover is going to be real bad in 2022.

Nice quip in the Fiver: is today's game between Belgium and England the first time two countries have played each other twice in a major tournament, with neither of them particularly caring whether they won either game?
(Teams have played each other twice in tournaments before, e.g. during Euro 2004 when the opening game and the final both saw Greece beat hosts Portugal.)

Meanwhile, tomorrow's final will decide both the official world championship and the unofficial one, which is currently held by Croatia.

I agree. I'm disappointed Southgate didn't start Vardy and Rashford.

And judging by lineup and effort Belgium is taking this match very seriously.

From the looks of it, Belgium are trying to win.
England, not so much.
Shows why England fail so regularly at international tournaments. They think themselves too good for lots of international footy. Yeah, no one wants to have to play this game, but 3rd place in the World Cup is a great achievement and comes with a medal. Its like their attitude to "meaningless friendlies" no-take those damn matches seriously like the successful teams do. That's where you develop the team and the first XI.

ETA: Waste of Sterling moves, for fuck all yet again. Not scored for 3 years for England. Remind me why he is not been reduced to latrine cleaning duties yet? He's fast? So are two dozen other players.

Actually, it's correct. That's why the "goals" scored during the shootouts aren't counted in the statistics. It's not part of the game. The correct reporting of the Croatia v. Russia match, for example, was:

Russia 2 - 2 Croatia (a.e.t.)
Croatia advances 4-3 on penalties

Penalty kick shootouts don't have to be the way that tied matches are resolved. Could be a coin flip. The match was still tied (and gets reported that way in statistics).

I agree.

Geiger is the VAR official. Why is he even allowed in a stadium? He should have been stripped of his refs whistle and sent home after the Col v Eng disaster.

I don't understand England's formation. In their last possession in Belgium's half they had 4 up front wings and four in the back but no one playing in the middle. The kind of CM Belgium uses to thread those quick passes to their attackers.

His through ball that Lukaku had a heavy touch on was great, and he's absolutely wonderful at longer passes too. Joy to watch.

Hazard did a nice job opening his hips up on that goal to send Pickford the wrong way. He's also really fun to watch.

I'm not trying to be pedantic. I think it's important. Well, not THAT important, but important enough to make the distinction. I don't want to take anything away from Croatia (I'm rooting for them tomorrow), but I think it gives them a little bit too much credit and takes away credit from the teams they "beat". Especially, since the shootout is a pretty crappy way to see who advances (although it still might be the best way).

Penalties require skill from both taker and GK and composure. When weighed against the health risks of the only better way to decide knockout matches, its a great compromise. In 1994 two of the greatest players to play their positions not only missed their PKs but put them over the bar.

PKs require footballing skill.

This. PK shootouts demand the basic footballing skills, to net the ball and to prevent it. There's just no better way to untie a draw, or would you want to go back to a rescheduled decisive game (unthinkable with today's schedules) or a coin throw, like in old times?

I'd prefer:

Golden goal -- why suffer through PKs if both teams score in overtime. Though you still need a tiebreaker of course.

Alternating corner kicks. Once defense clears it out of the penalty area (or perhaps some other area), it ends. The whole team is involved so it's more like the game itself.

The old version of MSL penalty kicks which started farther away. Kicker could dribble in. Goalie could rush the kicker. Again it seems more like the game itself.

I agree with Golden Goals. My issue with successive corners is the chance of bumping heads and concussions.

We had Golden Goals. The idea was rightfully shelved within less than ten years of having started. Two UEFA European Championships winners won their finals on a Golden Goal (Germany in 1996, scored by Oliver Bierhoff against the Czechs, and France in 2000, scored by David Trezeguet against the Italians). One match at the 1998 World Cup was decided by Golden Goal; three were decided by Golden Goal at the 2002 World Cup.

A slightly revised version, called the Silver Goal, debuted shortly after the 2002 World Cup. In this version, a goal scored in the first half of Extra Time didn't end the game immediately; the game ended at the interval between Extra Time halves if one team was leading. The Silver Goal decided the semi-final in the 2004 European Championship between Greece and the Czechs. It was scored in stoppage time on a corner kick. This highlighted the apparent unfairness of the concept: had the goal occurred at the start of play in the second half of Extra Time, the Czechs would have had all 15 min. thereafter to reply.

Well done Belgium !! Many congratulations to the lazy, fat bastards on taming the silky Brazilian minnows !! Kudos, especially after being outplayed for 65 minutes by the tiny, sushi-guzzling, bandy-legged Nipponfolk
