    Looking forward to a France England Final, that would be epic.

    Also, in local news, a Montreal sports franchise has found a way to not suck.

    Impact have 4 wins in a row, outscoring their opponents 9-1, solidly back in a playoff spot.

    Imagine that, a Montreal team in the playoffs

    France overcomes their past frailties. And now that undeniable talent has expressed itself.

    Many kudos.

    Varane and Umtiti are massive.

    It’s English energy versus Croatian guile.

    My hunch is England.

    Mine too, which is why I would bet on Croatia if I was a betting man. My hunches in this WC have been WAY off base pretty much from Day 1.

    lol

    I hear ya. I thought Spain was the cat’s ass because of their mix of experience and youth. Oops. 90% of Isco’s passes went sideways or backwards. Pretty much set the tone...

    French anti-football? Please. Hazard and Courtois need to shut up.

    Belgium players were such sore losers

    Anyhow, Croatia deserved to make the final. Hopefully, the French don't underestimate them as the Brits did!
