Re: #64 World Cup Final ~ France v Croatia - Match thread

Greece won one game in extra time in 2004. Dellas scored in the last minute of the first half of ET with a near post header. They had the 'silver' goal rule then so the Czechs had no time to equalize as Collina blew the whistle as they kicked off following the goal.

Re: #64 World Cup Final ~ France v Croatia - Match thread

Hope France wins big. Don’t like the comments coming out of the Croatia camp. Vida and a coach shouted Glory to Ukraine and then Vida added Belgrade burn. The coach was sent home while Vida escaped with a warning. Ukrainian troops made a video thanking Croatia and doing Nazi salutes. Croats in Vienn...

Well, I think they lasted for 90 minutes in 1940.

Re: #58 Brazil v Belgium ~ Quarter Finals - Match thread

He was a lokomotiv. That was a great run for their goal. He could have scored the third if Hazard had put a better cross in. He came across well in the presser. He spoke three languages and seems like he is a unifying force with his team. Hazard held the ball and won fouls in the second half. Courto...

Re: #58 Brazil v Belgium ~ Quarter Finals - Match thread

Picked Belgium and Uruguay to reach the semis. Belgium needs to play better in defense than they did against Japan. 2-1 to Belgium and Neymar to do at least 10 rolls after hitting a strong blade of grass.

Re: Argentina v France - Round of 16- match thread

We were in France for the 98 Cup. Saw the Argentina-Holland QF in Marseilles and took the train back to Nice. We got back around 2am and ran into some Argies at the promenade. They had rented a van and went all around France during the World Cup. They took there loss well and shared some wine with u...

Re: Spain v Russia - Match thread~ Round of 16

I was at the 2008 SF-Spain-Russia. I think Russia wants some revenge plus they'll have massive home support. Spain is not as good as before. Russia may nick this one, 2-1 to the KOKHY Boys

Re: #43 Serbia v Brazil - Match thread ~ Group E

Should have been different for Serbia. They would have been going into their final game on 6 points or at least 4 if it wasn't for the inept or bent German ref. I agree, Belgium and Croatia look good. I see Uruguay going to the SF. England are in with a shout. France look disjointed. Spain can be be...

Re: #29 Sweden 1-2 Germany ~ Group F

I was hoping the germans were on the way out... Sweden did the same against Italy, parked the double decker bus. I knew it was a bad sign when I saw Durmaz coming on. I saw him many times at Olympiakos and he often did stupid things, weak passes across the middle and needless fouls like in this matc...

Good post Red Star. I know all about the League of Prizren and I'm afraid that what happened in Kosovo can happen in Greece. They have all of Epirus on their greater Albania flag also. There are at least a million Albanians in Greece now. Kosovo je Crbija. Samo Sloga Srbe Spasava. As for the game-If...

Re: Refereeng

Otamendi should have gone off too for effectively trying to boot Rakitic in the head. VAR is threatening to ruin the game too, as seemingly every "incident" is "about to go to VAR". Have they not trialled this in a **** competition like the Confederations Cup or SPFL?[/quote] I a...

Re: Serbia v Switzerland - Match thread ~ Group E

Good posts Pharaoh and Steveyrockstar. Yesterday they overturned the awarded penalty for Neymar , yet they did nothing for the stonewall penalty to Mitrovic. I agree, the use of VAR is inconsistent. It worked well in Italy. I think this referee had it in his mind that Mitrovic fouls on every corner/...
