Of course, France are by far the best side left. Best side doesn't always win though I suppose.

I said the same when Portugal played France in the euro final. Look how that turned out.

yeah it's a smart choice, negating their best players and Lovren and Vida look terrified and dropping deep.

There's no way France are runaway favourites to beat anyone. They've fuckin eeked through. Funny the non-performances of some big players. For example Pogba and De Bruyne. Hazard was brilliant. Modric is total class. But there's no reason to think England can't win the whole thing.

They can, but they won't. Haven't won this one yet.

I love when it comes down to this time. Literally the biggest 45 mins of most of these players' careers ahead. Even Modric - there's no way he isn't patriotic.

France are no great shakes.

This world cup has been entertaining but also the lowest quality I can remember in any tournament.

Totally agree.

A lot of the players look knackered.

You've barely watched a kick by your own admission.

Feel free to form an opinion once you've informed yourself of some facts.

The very big names have struggled but there's still been loads of quality in this tournament. Maybe not loads of individual performances, but team wise yes, and some individuals.

That’s the thing, no matter how good they are in midfield they have old man Manzukic up front and Dejan on full power at the back (not a good thing when he tries to impose himself on Kane - been very rash) - bad in both boxes

I've grown to like Trippier a lot over the last couple of weeks. Feel dirty for saying it mind.

I'm starting to really dislike Harry Kane. Let him fuck off to RM and fail in every metric except most dives

I know some defend him but Lovren is a total steaming shit pile of a defender, he's fucking garbage and nowhere near good enough for LFC, he's totally brainless.

Been coming a bit.......effort has dropped off markedly in the second half.

Can argue about the foot, but that hesitation from a defender can be costly.

Need to up the tempo now.

There's no point keeping Kane on and having him out wide.
