Croatia was the better side. They deserved to win that


I think France wins fairly handedly

I will be rooting for Belgium to win 3rd

Point taken although one would assume (yeah I know) that the programming would be uniform across all the AI refs and as such an improvement over what we now have.

Same has been true in the NFL - for playoff games. Let'em play is the term used I believe.

I wish they'd yellow card more the holding shit and the pushing stuff, especially in the boxes.

It's soccer / football, not rugby. The latter is a sport which has grown on me, a lot.

I'll cheer for Croatia - would be nice for a little country to win it all. France and Croatia have both looked very good this cup. England surprised me. Best team in eons for them. Of course it helped England not to run in to Germany this time.

Both matches on the weekend should be great. '3rd place in soccer is not too bad as a consolation, as you end the cup on a winning note. Not the same note as winning it all, but still a high note.

It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master.

I’ve watched for 14 minutes. I’ve seen 3 flops and just now a dive leading to a goal.

Congratulations to France...

Croatia played well but they didn't get the breaks. The PK was very unlucky for Croatia.

I was rooting for Croatia but I thought France would win going in.

I enjoyed the tournament and thanks to all who participated in this thread.

It's amazing how little I cared for the WC this year without the US involved.

Oh well, congrats to France.

Yes. 2nd wasnt bad. Great world cup, its interesting that so many good players came from croatia but it seems the bosnian war maybe put quite a few in the euro system which prolly made them better. Couple counter attacks got us for controlling the game so well.
