Well that was an easy game for the ref. I'm sure half the time he blew the whistle it wasn't even necessary.
I've really enjoyed watching the English on offense. When they attack you can just feel the build up.

Next up, Russia vs Croatia. There will definitely be more emotion in this game.

I'm still wondering who approved the Croatia away kit. With all the controversy surrounding their team, why pick a uniform that invites comparisons to the Crna Legija?

Russia strikes first and the vodka is starting to flow.
As for the Croatian team, listening to the announcer it sounds like every player is an itch.

It's no different than Italian names ending in 'i' or many Russian names ending in 'ov'.

France VS England Final, but Belgium does look like a strong team. I kind of don't have faith in Croatia against England.

Belgium is ranked 3rd, well above France who is 7th. Belgium has already beaten Japan in a dramatic comeback where they had to handle immense pressure and they have experience with a coordinated attack in the final minute of the game. They have beaten Brazil which is ranked 2nd.

Of course, we are at a stage where rankings and past performances do not matter. But I'd love to see Belgium hold the cup. But somehow have an intuition that Kane is going to hold the cup this year.

Yes! But if it is England vs Belgium, the UK media will have a field day and frame it as Brexit vs the EU.

Belgium did not play badly to deserve a loss, but congratulations to the French...looking forward to an action packed final.
