    I don't have a dog in the fight but when England started faking (or over-extending injuries ) and being leisurely on every non-game event, I'm glad they lost.

    Croatia has been underrated all tournament and still are. It's ridiculous.

    Goalie is world class.
    Midfield is world class.
    Forwards are middle class.

    Only thing average is their defense, but they've been doing alright.

    Everyone keeps saying that they're "tired", but I haven't seen that yet, and have yet to see data suggesting that four days of rest is not enough to recover.

    I believe France are slight favorites in the final, but it's still ridiculous how much people are discounting Croatia and their wins over everyone thus far.

    I'd peg the final at 60% France, 40% Croatia. Sportsbooks are undervaluing Croatia again. Worth betting on for positive EV.

    Thats soccer unfortunately, the French did it to us in the first game after they went 2-1 up. If VAR can rule on penalties then I think injuries should be reviewed as well, and when a Neymar or the like roll around clutching a body part that wasn't touched, instance red card. Stamp it out. Won't happen though, its considered gamesmanship :(

    Anyone know what France's odds to win were at the start of the tourney? Couldn't find anything on the web other than the final's odds.

    About +700. Here's a nice archive of the odds from before the tournament all the way through the entire thing: France Top Odds to Win the World Cup with Four Teams Left

    I would also like to know, lol I was a bit surprised a lot of people though Croatia was going to win. I ended up winning my bet I had on France lol could have won more but didn't want to get greedy, I always remember greedy kills.

    I thought Croatia played like champions, maybe even better than France.

    They lost on some minor technicalities (own goal, and penalty). Other than that, their playing & possession% were better.

    It really was a 4-1 for me, Croatia first goal was based on a BS yellow card on Kante. If you look clearly nobody touched the Croatian player and that was a dive in my opinion I can't remember who it was.

    Same can be sad about BS penalty and BS free kick where Griezmann started falling even before someone touched him :rofl: But imo it doesn't make sense to talk about what "could have been". Not a fan of France, but they were simply the strongest team of the tournament. I cannot think of one team that could have beaten France.

    Big respect to Croatia. Modric definitely deserved the Golden Ball.

    For Belgium it was the best World Cup ever. Nobody dared to dream about becoming world champ one month ago. Now they have set a new benchmark.

    This was a great and super entertaining World Cup.

    LOL That was NOT a BS penalty, that was a clear handball, you can see why they brought their hand down, the ball was deflected as it could have gone in the net and be scored.

    Griezman played very well, I was never a fan of him but I can see he does play a lot better in Athletico De Madrid. I am a Real Madrid fan by the way, so I really want RM to get MBappe!

    In my opinion if the final would have been Belgium Vs France it would have been a MUCH better game, a type of game we haven't seen in a while. I was impressed by Belgium a very good solid team with a lot of valuable players.
