Problem is France only wins finals at home :). And, yes. Cheating French! Look at the defensive actions of Giroud.

I can't remember anything bad from Giroud .. aside from failing to score but the situations he was in were hardcore.

He clearly fouled Hazard very close to the french penalty box, which the referee didn't want to to see although he was nearby. And later at the centrefield some smaller issues.

Did you actually watch the match!?

It was a good match! Yes, Belgium should've had a FK when Giroud took down Hazard ... and yes, I secretly hoped Belgium would win (sorry Vale), but still, it was a good match. The French played well, and that Mbappe is a beast. A little less antics and I might even start rooting for him :-P

I watched the majority of it until I realized the French started playing Epic Focus: Defensive Wall.

But hey, I'm expecting my fix to get satisfied with today's game.

Now Croatia faces France in the World Cup final. Surely this time its players will have to be tired. They have gone to extra time in all three knockout round wins, playing the equivalent of one full 90-minute game more than the French players. N’Golo Kanté and Kylian Mbappé will run literal circles around them, right?

Maybe. And maybe that’s just how the Croatians want it.

Why would they be tired? They have been playing 2 games every week for the past 6 months, a majority of these players. Domestic league games and champions league, europa league or league cups. They have from mid week till Sunday to recover and be fresh for the game of their lives.

The biggest risk for them is muscle injuries, fatigue shouldn't be a factor really.

I have to applaud Belgium and England for their performances this world cup, two fairly young squads that really seemed to gel and show their class in moments. This england side under Gareth Southgate is deserving of a lot of applause and I hope they will be received with such when they return home, but knowing the English press, its not that likely.

Gonna be an interesting final, I hope France win due to my fondness of Paul Pogba, but this Croatia team has really grown on me too. May the best team win and I hope for a more entertaining final than we had in 2014 :pray:

I did see this as well. Giroud clearly did foul Hazzard.

England played well, especially in the beginning of the game. Stirling was tearing through Croatia's midfield but Harry Kane had a really rough game. Croatia, God Bless them, are playing like the most cohesive unit of any of the teams I have seen, save maybe Spain but with better 1v1 technique near the box.

What is going on with the number 9s in this tournament? Giroud, Kane, Falcao, they all have struggled with some really golden opportunities. Even some 10s, like Modric and Mane have struggled offensively. So many goals by set pieces, is there something I am not seeing that teams are doing defensively? Belgium, up until France and Brazil, whom I think were just really unlucky vs Belgium, seemed the only teams to consistency capitalize in their games.

Bloody cheating french! First diver Griezmann causes the autogol, then the referee gives them a penalty which hardly was one. Only intentional hands is punishable.

Go Hrvatska! Now you really deserve to win.
