Seen the game now. In hindsight: Sweden had two really good chances. Their goalie made two qualified saves on those. In the end that is what makes the difference.
Swedish marking on their second goal was awful though. I wonder what happened there?
Sweden did have a couple of chances but England could have scored 3 or 4, in the end it was a pretty comfortable win for England.

Im not even much a fan of futbol... except at World Cup time (even if my team is not in it... they have never sniffed at earning the Cup anyway)... and then as it gets to NOW in the tournament.... I am watching as closely and intently as any sport I love all the time ... THIS IS GREAT SPORTS!!!

WOW!!

3 more matches to go... FOR ALL THE MARBLES!!! Its going to be GREAT!!!

Four thumbs up

oops... 4 it is. spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

Right now there is probably nothing more in the whole world the guys on the four remaining teams want to than play for the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP... and probably nothing less they want to do than play in that match to decide 3rd and 4th place.

The intensity for this World Cup right now is in the air... I can feel it.

LOL !

well, I'm sure you're a nice guy but you're too dangerous to me.

Still batting 1000!

OK, Russia over Croatia now...

then, France over Belgium, England over Russia....

Everyone speaks so lightly about Belgium! They have defeated Brazil ! Belgium was always the 'underdog'. Watch out guys!
These are my expectations:
Belgium over France
England over Croatie.
The two that remain are in my opinion two winners.

Belgians are favorites regarding their fifa ranking (N°3), France is N°7

Yup, very boring if they do though.

A Belgium v England final would be very interesting, surprising, entertaining etc.

...

Been quite charmed by England's approach to this world cup. They have went about things in a great way. Southgate has built up a good thing.

Quite a confusing thing to be a Scotsman that feels a bit of empathy for the England team. grinning smiley

Pure and simple, they deserve to be where they are in this world cup.

I like most of these finalists for the most part.

It's amazing how a team can look so good in one match, such as Sweden vs. Switzerland or Mexico and then, have a hard time like yesterday. It happens quite a bit. Colombia were very good for some games but were largely shut down vs. England.

I feel for Uruguay, they really played good and only lacked Cavani in that last game vs. France. They are a very sporting clean-playing team. You know, there are some ugly moments and teams that play like that often.

yes I must admit it's confusing
It's a mystery wrapped up in an enigma.
William Wallace would have a heart attack.

It reminds me of when I watched Celtic v Man City.

Being an Aberdonian/Aberdeen fan, I quite dislike septic/smeltic.

However, their sheer grit and go for it attitude made me a lil fan for those two games.

Business as usual once they were over though. grinning smiley

I think someone thought they were being funny BUT NOT FUNNY. Maybe the post should even be removed.

Teams can NOT look beyond the semi-finals...all 4 of these teams would be deserving champions, I don't even want to jinx anyone.... I have my ideas and I'll keep 'em until the next 2 matches are done.

Do folks in the Netherlands want Belgium to win because? Is the culture shared? I don't know about this. It seems like it is in part of the nation.

Since, I watched the 1986 World Cup near on Mexican TV mostly, they carried the Red Devils games when they had Cuelemans and the Pfaff brothers I believe. I really liked them though I think the '86 World Cup and '90 World Cup had a lot of draws, they fine tuned the rules to get fewer draws.

So, here, Netherlands miss the World Cup; but a very good if not great Belgian team are there.

P.S.

I don't know if google does it, but bing.com has it where they guess the result....go to bing and type in say, "France World Cup" and it tells you who their favourite is at least.

Agree with you BroomWagon, not funny at all and even not necessary, unjustified, agressive and offensive!

Out of the teams remaining I will root firstly for Belgium because they have a very good team and have never won the tournament, secondly for France because of their beautiful game against Argentina in the 1/16-final.
One of them is not going to make it for the final however. Both England and Croatia have been very lucky to make it this far in the tournament. Strange to see England this late in tournament.
Almost as strange as seeing an Englishman winning Wimbledon (Andy Murray, 2013 - first since Fred Perry in 1936). Even though Sir Andrew is a Scot...

As Murray is Scottish, perhaps you meant it was strange seeing a Brit winning Wimbledon.

Yep, Big Al. It struck me when I wrote the last sentence. But never let facts interfer with a good line as some journalist said a while ago... And do forgive me for not rooting for England in football. It's a bit strange really since I'm an anglophile at heart. I Like most things with England, and Britain. Always had. Maybe it's the cockiness of the British press that turns me off. They already think they have won it. Or something like that...

well, I think I'm the only French on this topic so it's my duty to wish the best for my team.

Belgium has Hazard, Lukaku, de Bruyne.....

France has Mbappé, Griezmann and Giroud (hope the "sleepy brothers" are gonna wake up tonight)...

Belgium is favourite, they have a more efficient attack with 14 goals, France only 9.
on the defense side, Belgium have conceded 5 goals and France 4.

But I still believe that we have a chance to win.

So, come on FRANCE !!
