Wow. what a match.

As soon as a competent and experienced team put on the pressure England fell completely apart.


Eh, they didn't look bad. Could have gone either way.

England and Belgium for yet another throw away game.  awesome, for real

I hope it is just Kane and Lukaku just taking shots while the rest of their teams watch on the side.

First half I agree, once Sterling left they were out of ideas though.  They didnít have a single serious attempt at a goal beyond the 65th minute.

You could see it getting to them.

Young team. Experience beat them today. Four years from now itíll probably be a different story

A blind kid at the local radio station said Croatia too. :)

England definitely took their foot off the gas in the second half.

England was exhausted. Their only real chance in the 2nd half/extra time was some long ball up the pitch for Kane, who was ineffective all game long.

France are gonna bum Croatia. Like 3-0.

I would have liked a France-England final just to see France beat them across the pitch. The anguished tears on the UK channels would have been glorious. As it was they were practically throwing themselves off a cliff on the ITV Channel.  why so serious?

Ah well, we will get to see Belgium murdering them on Saturday.

France looked good during Euro 2016.  I thought they might go all the way this time.

England got way too many of their goals on set pieces, which told you that their attack wasn't doing much in open play. Alli seemed mostly useless and wasteful all tourney, as was Lingard, Sterling was Sterling (meaning he was fast as hell but with horrible shooting or crossing) and I still can't figure out why Kyle Walker was used as a center back in a 3-man defense as opposed to a wingback. I still don't see what the fuss is about Stones either - he has good ball skills but his defensive attention span is practically nil. Trippier looks good from the dead ball and dead from the live one. Ashley Young is not a better choice at LB over Danny Rose. I'm not necessarily saying there were better options, mind you, but England lucked their way into the semis.

As for Belgium and Fellaini, I think he was a better choice than Weitsel, who has looked completely out of his depth all tournament.

I want Croatia to win just because they beat Russia and players taunted them with pro-Ukrainian slogans afterwards.     awesome, for real

BTW because only Reddit seemed to have noticed.

England tried to kick-off and score while Croatia were still celebrating the 2:1.

Apart from the cuntiness and lack of sportsmanship it's funny for several reasons

1. It's impossible because the rules of the game don't allow this. (e.g. opposing team needs to be in their own half during kick off)
2. England should know that it won't work because of the Panama game
3. Panama tried the same "strategy" during the England vs. Panama game and got mercilessly mocked by the English press and team because of the stupidity

and finally: England managed to still make the resulting "goal" be offside if it were allowed.

Two problematic Ref/Var decisions gave France two goals.

Griezmannís Flop led to the free kick. The handball decision gave them the penalty.

I disagree. The Griezman thing was a bit of a flop in that he pretty much invited the contact but I still see a foul there. The handball decision though was absolutely right in my opinion. While the player didn't really know much about it, his hand did move towards the ball (whether by accident or not) and it's something I could easily see the ref having missed in real time. The benefit of the replay is that he got to see it again at full speed from a different angle, and he got it right.

I think it was a great game to watch personally and I didn't really have a cheering interest in either time other than to see good players playing well. Kylian Mbappe is just goddamn amazing.

That handball was the right call, so not that problematic when that is the reason for VAR.

As for the flop, *shrug* maybe, but it was convincing enough.

edit: Kante getting a yellow was a bit much for me at the beginning.

And I am on a streak of 2 Cups calling the winner.  awesome, for real

The N'Golo Kante yellow card was extremely ridiculous.
