If Brazil had won, that for me would have been luck. Both teams play well but one played the game it wanted and received the result it deserve and that ladies and gentlemen is football. Does Luck play a role? Yes from time to time, but on this occasion - no, planning and execution was the sole determinant of the result.



KPOM!!!

Ok I have come back to chop my humble pies. Took a long time, but what must be eaten, must be eaten.

I am still not a fan of Croatian football...but leave that for another discussion, for now, I chop the humble pies.

No worries. We're all friends here.

Give Croatia a chance. As I tried to explain, we try to play attacking, attractive football. But you've seen we just don't have even 1 competent forward...to the point where they frustrate a world class midfield and defense.

We put Argentina on its heels for 30 minutes before that BS penalty collapsed us. Argentina then routed us, again, because we had to attack and get exposed to a great offensive team, early enough.

We have a great hope: Roko Simic is 6'6 but fast and agile. Being touted as the Croatian Haaland.

I sure hope he pans out. Maybe we get back to more attacking flair, which we've traditionally had. We have emerging defenders and midfielders...and should withstand a once in a generation player like Modric retiring.

Let's see...if we can maintain the level and class to beat teams like Brazil, Argentina, maybe even win a WC?
