Yet some here hailed them as tactical geniuses against Brazil where they only attackd once. The way they won that game really put me off

Croatians are tactically astute amd efficient. They also have skillful players. I call them the Brazil of Europe.

Its nonfluke that they have achieved what they have so far.

Today, they came across one of the best footballer that has ever lived on hiis best form.

Nothing to be ashamed of.

They are what they are. A good solid pragmatic side, that knows what they are. A team that builds on defense and doggedness and is very unimaginative in the final third.

What I didn't like was the day after beating Brazil, people tried to mask their negativity and said they controlled the game.

I am talking pundits, journalists and people that should know better.

I watched all their games. Lukaku should have sent them home early, they forced extra time and penalties against Japan and Brazil.

For the Brazil game, they had 3 touches in Brazil's box....just think about that for a minute.

I detest Argentina, but in a way, this is for the best. The better team won, even though Argentina themselves were horrible before they got their break today.

it can be a funny game sometimes, they were inches away from going out in the group stages.

KPOM!

Messi was the difference. In a big way. I have no shame in admitting this.

Messi may well win this and claim a GOAT.

You might watch but you see what you want to believe rather than what happened.

Croatia don't play park the bus or even heavy defense. Croatia play to possess in order to tire the opponent and create chances...betrayed only by not having even 1 attacker. Period.

Like I said, doesn't matter. Croatia has 2 semis in a row. 3 since 1998. Not luck.

We'll be back.

Now let's get on with who will be the WC champion. Argentine vs ?

Argentina does look good now. Messi is now the ultimate X factor.
