Belgium v France tonight,1am Wednesday morning Thai time.
Hazard,de Bruyne,Lukaku and Courtois up against Mbappe,Pogba,Kante and Lloris....promises to be a cracker,on paper anyway.

Red square is full of Red Black & Gold today and its nothing to do with Belgium
25 planes arrived overnight with all the Germany fans coming for the Semi Final and Final (as they usually do)
They are currently wandering aimlessly around Moscow looking for their team

France make the World Cup Final.jpg
France 1 Belgium 0
The match turned out to be a bit disappointing....not that that will bother the French ! Belgium had the majority of possession but failed to do anything with it.Hazard,de Bruyne,Lukaku all failed to rise to the occasion.
Although they only had 36% of the possession,the French had 19 shots at goal to Belgiums 9 but it was Umtitis towering header in the 51st minute that proved decisive.

Now in case anyone out there has forgotten =; the second semi final is tonight....England v Croatia,kickoff 1am Thursday morning Thai time.
The main danger to England,as I see it,are Croatias star midfielders Modric and Rakitic.Let them dictate the play and Henderson could be very exposed as the defensive midfielder.Possibly Southgate might try to shore up the midfield by bringing Dier in.Personally,I'd leave out Sterling and push one of Lingard and Alli further up to support Kane.
Unlikely he'll do it....in Gareth we trust ;) …...hope everyone enjoys the game and we get the right result ! :D

Great start for England but Croatia look dangerous going forward,poor at the back though,so lets hope England can capitalise.

Unfortunately they did not, losing 2 to 1. Now who's going to predict winner between Croatia and France. I lean toward France only because the Croatia players must be dead tired after all the extra time play.

Pathetic. One lousy shot on target during 130 mins of play. :evil:
The only way 'footballs coming home' would be the short time that we might host the tournament in the future.
The good news is it's only 4 weeks tomorrow until the serious football starts again.

Melita Fabecic Miss Croatia.jpg
Lets face it,after the first 45 minutes Croatia were easily the better team and thoroughly deserved their victory.
England were lucky to get to extra time......Stones went to sleep for Croatias winner.
Trippier,Maguire and Pickford all played OK.....all I can say about Alli,Lingard and Kane is even Sterling played better than them.
But they made the semi finals for the first time since 1990.I think most people thought they would do well to reach the last 16.
So most people wanted a Belgium v England final and we've ended up with France v Croatia....its a conspiracy ! :D
I hope the Croats win it but I think France will have too much for them.Mbappe and Griezmann up against Croatias dodgy defence…..Lovren,jeez ! :yikes:
