That's a comment where you are asking for enemies, but i loved it
Me? Nah, I only ever ask for friends. I'm just a real dick to my shittier "friends"
I just realized that this is a legit possibility.
I don’t see any reason England has earned a right to look past Sweden, let alone Croatia.
I would love croatia!
Now that my original vote Belgium can no longer win, I'm contemplating switching to France. Especially if England reaches the final, since they have so many votes. France vs Croatia is more even.
Still France, though I can't say I'd be too upset if England, er, "brought it home", or whatever they're saying.
I want penalties in the final. What I don't want is a 1-0 game with a goal on a corner.
England. They have a very likeable team. But unfortunately I see another howler coming. Maybe two. A goalie mistake to take away from Pickford's MVP performance and Kyle Walker had a mistake free game against Sweden, so expect something stupid from him again.
Psyche! 3 - 1 England.
At this point:
I changed my vote from Uruguay to Croatia.
They are the best team.
Of a weak WC. The spanish team from 8 years ago would beat France easily.
I dont hope there destoying style win this. Its a role model for the next 4 years. So i never thought i would say this, but i would prefer England.
Says a Portugal fan
I'm German. If we are out i hope for the team who plays the best looking football.
I liked the French team from 1998. But this team has nothing special beside Mbappe.
Tells a lot.
The french team from the 98 was all D who were incapable of breaking a defense down.
They won the final against a strong Brazil team.
Two goals on set-pieces and another in garbage time. They were garbage offensively, Guivarch was their #9 Lol. But they were hard to beat.
Zidane played like crap.
And the final was playing D and praying. Zidane scored two headers on two corners.
How many do you think he scored in his career like that? Very few.
We beat Paraguay in ET with Blanc scoring. Beat Italy on penalties after a 0-0 draw.
Beat Croatia in a defensive affair with Thuram scoring his only two goals of his career.
We did play great football in Euro 00 however.
France had no worldclass striker 1998. They needed many chances to score a Goal + every team parked the bus in the own zone. Thats what France does many games this WC.
I would prefer Thuram, Desailly, Lizarazu,Deschamps,Zidane over the Players of this WC. Imagine this team had Mbappe.
France hasn't parked the bus.
Thuram/Desailly/Lizarazu/Blanc is arguably the best D ever.
But they had Djorkaeff, Zidane, Henry, Trezeguet, Papin, Cantona and Ginola.
Yet they produced zero offense.
They didn't have chances they missed, that's not true. They didn't have chances at all.
This french team is better offensively, like it or not.
Well in 98, the strikers were Guivarch, Henry, Trezeguet and Dugarry. Henry and Trez were a bit older than Mbappé now but not on his level.
