Notice how Croatian defender Domagoj Vida will be booed every time he touches the ball. That is because he made an attack at Kreml in a video earlier in the tournament.
He was warned by FIFA but is still allowed to play.

One thing Belgium did very well and football coaches should learn from is this: The fast changeovers from defending to attack.
Look at the 2-0 goal against England. 3-4 passes, 10-15 seconds and then...goal!

100% agree and they did it before too, against Brazil if don't remember wrong.
Hazard was really great yesterday and during the whole championship, really great player and he doesn't "cry" when he touches the ground so he gladly won't win the Oscar.
Chapeau!

Croatia the better team by far so far. But trails 2-1 after an own goal and a questionable penalty (after VAR). Mbappe, the new Pelé, has mostly shown falling abilities thus far.

Croatia dominated the first half. France has two goals on one shot. Croatia had plenty of chances to score. They just need to keep up the pressure and they will eventually even if up.

Congrats to Stoneage for his great performance in predicting the World Cup matches!
Even there is still the second half to be played he is already the winner!
I thought France will win this game, but wanted Croatia to win, so I had to predict for Croatia thinking you were predicting the opposite (for France), this was my one and only chance to get closer to you!
I've had lot of fun playing this challenge for the third time with my IORR Stones mates!
Cheers! smileys with beer

(P.S.: with respect, sorry and thanks BV!)

You're kidding me Quique-stone? This game is still wide open! You're right, I predicted France. But Croatia is playing great and still has a very good chance of turning this one around.

There you go...4-2. Still a hope for Croatia! Two really bad goalies in this game...

The handball penalty call is a complete game-changer. It is one of the worst rules in soccer. Especially when the ball rolls off a French players back and barely touches the Croatian players hand unintentionally. It tarnishes the tournament.

You're right, Sicilian. The referee shouldn't have used VAR here. There was nothing the Croatian defender could do to avoid the touch. No matter the touch, I don't think it was a penalty. France was lucky. All the same, congrats to France. They scored three goals besides the lucky penalty. A good game. Poor Croatia. They deserved better. 4-2, far better than 0-0 and penalties after all...

He clearly moved his hand towards the ball.

Thanks Cristiano and Quique-stone. Predicted badly in the last round (quarterfinals and beyond) though. But so did everyone else it seemed. Except Quique-stone who came very close in the end.
Fun this, especially when you win... Sorry, we couldn't talk about it...

Agree!
But would like to mention that Pitana didn't asked for the VAR, he was called and forced to watch it and he took his time and watched it more than one time, I think he had his doubts.

As usual, France doesn't have a good playing but win at the end. We call that "LA CHATTE".
They already have the MELON or the BOULARD but now...
