Bro this games on another day is different stories.No one see Croatia beaten Argentina silly and win all 3 group games with ease.


Were you not the one willing to bet Nigeria could have won this WC in another thread? :rotf:

Yes, Anything can happen on the green grass. Just saying both Belgium and France have produced more impressive football in a
harder bracket, compared to England, who have still not been tested by any real competition yet.


Get pass Croatia first, then we can talk about France.

Didier will lend his helping hand.


Never thought he had it in him, but he has been outstanding so far...

The use of Matuidi has been superb; gives the team a wonderful balance. He has him taking up some really strategic positions on the left side...found a little sweet spot for him on the inside between the belgian RWB and Toby

Martinez has himself to blame, how many matches had Dembele played? He was clearly lacking match sharpness and it showed...these are the sort of brain farts that had England hoping he’d be in the opposite dugout on World Cup final day.

If they do get to the final, this French team will wipe the floor with them. England was lucky to get this far, avoiding all the top 10 teams and suddenly finding themselves in a World Cup Semifinal. However, luck and set-pieces can only carry you up to a point. Eventually you would be found out, except FIFA and their Referees swing it to them. Good thing is, the French shows today they can deal with free-kicks and corner-kicks. And they have a first eleven going into the Final.

Maybe they will....but football has heaped surprises where crap teams survive all the pressure only to get lucky. Greece sends their greetings.

Well done to France. a much more balanced team than Belgium. Loss of Munier was huge for Belgium IMO.. Kudos to Belgium & Martinez for a good run. Highlight is the win vs. Brazil.. Martinez will have to answer a few tactical questions.. No credible answer to French strong MF trio of Kante/Pogba/Matuidi

Hopefully, the French do not go to lose to England in the final..

Henry can secretly cheer when he gets back to his hotel room.


I thought Martinez was badly let down by Dembele. You would've expected him to more than match anyone on the field out there...

Dembele should have gone off a lot earlier. His sloppiness allowed France to get out of the cage and have a foothold in the game just when Belgium was preparing to ice them.


... but truetalk and them talk say Martinez sabi read game ba?

Meanwhile everyone could see that dembele was way off his normal level of performance long before they conceded.

French team has no obvious weakness except Giroud, maybe he scores the winner in the finals?

The same French team we played in 2014, played Euro in 2016 and are in the Final now in 2018. But, Nigeria thinks changing Coaches, players and NFF President every two years will get them to World Cup Final. :taunt: :lol: :lol: :roll:

Well you just buttressed my point. Thanks! Maybe we are saying the same thing. Since 2014,they have played a major tournament the euro, while we were busy sacking coaches. So comparing ourselves with France should not even come up

True...One of those World Cups. I think most of the teams acknowledged the closing gaps and studied how to outwit opponents.

Wins are getting harder and the margins narrower.

I am sure they have used up all their luck...starting with the game against Tunisia, to ending in a very easy half of the draw, to Colombia losing James Rodrigues and making a heavy work of their penalties. That’s a whole lot of luck for a team, don’t you think???? :roll: :roll:

Matuidi, Kante, ZePog...If gets no better than this, its the hottest sh*t on the street, to move units like Shania Twain on a Mobb beat.

Fellani, Wittsel, Tintin...Anyone thinking Southgate wanted otherwise is insane!...And they haven't worked out OG Bobby Johnson yet.

That Belgium backline would've had Lacazette screaming rape. He isn't man enough, big or bad enough, to walk with the elephants. OG didn't do much, but check his pockets, more ivory than a Zimbabwe poacher.

Absolutely not.
You have to invite & select players with the best ability to play, which was not done.
Also not taking to the world cup players with lesser ability or average players; to make matters worse taking players you have no confidence in putting on the field.
