it's down to:

Belgium vs France

and

England vs [ Russia or Croatia ]


i don't really care about any of them, so probably best to be France vs Russia in the final as far as Trump saying something stupid... not that it ever seems to matter

England–Russia would be an epic game. But I think Croatia is going to beat Russia and then England.

I think we will see Belgium–Croatia in the final, and then Belgium will win it all.

Belgium has seemed impressive w/ the comeback vs the halflings & dominating Brazil

but their country has no personality... i can't think of anything associated with it... waffles? that's about it

That was close. But I told you, Croatia was going to win.

That Modrich guy in Croatia looks like he could be a NPC from Kingdom Come Deliverance. Just put a Ring Mail on him and give him a sword and a shield and he’s like straight outta KCD.

"but their country has no personality... i can't think of anything associated with it... waffles? that's about it"

Dude... chocolate, fries and most of all fucking beer? Wtf is your problem? All the best beers in the world are made here. Nobody gives a shit about waffles.

Belgium - France is the real final... I need us to win this one (got fucking frenchies for coworkers), but whoever wins that one will win the cup, it seems. Croatia started out strong, but has faltered since. England has played one "good" game against bloody Panama... and a decent first half against Tunisia.

The left hand side of the table should always win the final. Really hope it will be our first :D

Preferably versus England... both because we already faced off once with our B-teams, which was a sad game, so now we could say "and now let's play for real". But also because it would be the Premier League Battle, which is fun for the players.

England, France & Belgium were 4th, 5th & 6th most likely so not completely awful...

We have colonized the Congo rather brutally back in the day. It's a country about 80 times our own size, so that's not too shabby.

But apart from that we've been conquered by about every western european nation with the exception of England, for some reason.

It's the beer and chocolate that's important though. Our people care mostly about good food and drink, not some silly details like who thinks they're in charge atm.

Also there isn't a country in the world that has seen more battles take place inside its borders... I'm sure you've heard of places in Belgium in the context of war. Most famously probably Waterloo and the Battle of the bulge.

i dunno... on google maps when you type in "Europe" you have to zoom in multiple steps before Belgium shows up... in there with Moldova... and notable cities in the real countries

why not at least fully take Luxembourg? you have a concave border with them... concave!

also that nugget of the Netherlands south of Sittard... have a manly border

For the games today, Russia showed heart but at the end of the day the better team won. My bracket had Brazil v Croatia as the final. With Brazil gone guess that means I have Croatia. The France team could easily go into beast mode though.

How did they come up with these numbers? 78% of france team are migrants? I went to wiki, for current french squad

4 out of 23 were born outside of france, ne in guadelupe which I think is a protectorate or something

*one in guadelupe, one in Corsica, both french territory. In any case, not anywhere close to 78%. Maybe they mean 2nd generation

We're happy we got the bronze, because it's the best belgium ever did (4th in 1986 was our best so far). But yeah... we really could and should've won it all. We were the best team in the tournament and it is a shame France's anti-football won the day.

I really hope Croatia will get their first tomorrow.

Didn't realize that it's been 60 years since a teen scored a goal in the World Cup. Pele scored 6 in 58 now this kid scored 4 for France. Not really a soccer fan as I really don't understand the game all that much. Beats watching golf or bowling ;)
