      If France wins , it will be exactly as they played against Belgium, all defence and trying to score on a counter. Very effective tactic, but very coward like and negative style of play, i hope Croatia wins, it is a team that plays positively, and i am happy they won against England this way , the english were not a really good team (lost against Belgium, almost lost against a weakened Colombia, won against an incredibly weak Sweden).
      If France wins this way, it is a big loss for football as a sport.
      It is weird to read the english press writing about the english team as maybe the best on the world cup. England would have had no chance at all against Brasil, and they would have had very little chance against France too. Also their goal against Croatia was a cheap one, the Croatians made 2 proper goals.

      The match for 3rd place is not relevant anymore, but everybody who is honest knows the english are the weaker team in this match.

      But all this said , dont u guys think football is a bit of a sport for defending style of play, 1-0 and then defend with 11 players aggressively , worked for France!

      Table tennis is so much more exciting and positive (well , just forbid the long pips to avoid shitty ugly play), but i think we need still some rule adjustments (like the height of the service toss, which is not clearly visible for umpires).

      so exactly like Belgium played against Brazil then. Btw France had 19 shots against Belgium's 9, 5-3 on target. You had a brilliant team this time and the result could've easily been the opposite if not for a random Umtiti header, but calling France cowardly is just saltiness, they did exactly what had to be done.

      While I don't like France tactics I think they beat Belgium fair and square. However, I'd think Croatia will beat France 2-0 in the final.

      I think Ma Long will get revenge on Harimoto. Oh, you're talking about the other World Cup. Never mind.

      First one for sure - spectacular dive by Griezmann. Second one though was a legitimate handball...

      Realistically, France has a good chance, from what I've seen so far.
      Years of watching TT is well worth it.

      There is a saying over here, that goes a little something like this:
      TableTennis players only play football for warm-up.

      [Meaning: football is too trivial for TT-players]
