France draws first blood from a corner

It could be fun watching this game open up as Belgium gets desperate.

When we get to Qatar 2022, France will have the best player in the world.

Viva La France, youth has been served.

Belgium and their golden generation have been denied their shot at glory.

England/Croatia:  going to be an interesting tilt.  Don't think it will live up to France/Belgium but should still be a good clash.

Croatia doesn’t look fresh at all. They can carry the play for now. The second half will be interesting.

I don't think you could ask anything more than what England has done in the first half... minus another goal.

 In the end England is their own worst enemy in big time matches you need a  mercurial  player they just don’t produce them.  They are too hampered by fundamentals scared to make a mistake .

I am taking France to win this, there will be no headbutt this time.

France was embarrassed for so many years before they won their first World Cup.  Decades ago to remedy that,  they sunk a lot of dollars into an academy system that produced 50 World Cup players this year, their own plus it was responsible for much of Tunisia’s, Morocco’s and Senegal’s teams and many from a number of nations before.  France might be the world leader for incubating soccer talent.  Brazil second in World Cup player production, way behind France.

Most odds give France a 60% chance.  Still like Croatia.  Funny how England was so dominating to begin with, but Croatia had an extra gear and England just ran out of gas.  Sunday is the final and that should give Croatia time to recover.

I picked France to beat Croatia in my bracket but I will be cheering for Croatia. I’m a sucker for the good story.
