I think that the WC loss and the age of the Croatian team has done them in. They knew they were better than France and gave up two stupid PK's..that was the game. Mandukic retired..no?
Croatia is not the same as a year ago. Mandukic was one of their top players. These guys have so much money and their ages..they are just cruising now.
Yeah it happens. Who can forget Germany losing to Korea in the WC? Although Germany won in 2014 and it's a long time ago but I think the sentiment is similar...as a team what do they have left to prove? Spain is still not back in full stride either. It's lonely being one of the top dogs and all the smaller dogs trying to snipe at you. It gets tiring

Apparently Inter had some scouts there to check out Szoboszlai in person. Salzburg won't get an offer for em based on this performance.

Guys, we did it!! Can you believe it?!

I watched the whole thing at Starbucks via cell phone and left on cloud nine pumping fists.

This was the breakthrough game we needed that I talked about, a huge monentum-shifter. It's been 65 years since we last beat a WC silver-medalist team. I knew Croatia was on a down-shift after Azerbajan and could be beat. Good ol' Budapest is regaining its good reputation as a tough venue. The fans were estastic. It was a "great day!".

Szalai came through again, that's 5 goals in 5 games for our handsome cavalier colossus, Mr. Consistency delivered - the day, the week, the month is right as rain when our golden boy scores. Dzsudzsak delivered a top performance by not deep crossing like I strongly advocated otherwise we would have lost. Congratulations on his well-earned 100th appearance and two big assists.

Guys, we just broke open our group, it's wide open now, our path is wide open and its golden if we can win with max effort again against Azerbajan. Good days ahead if we can clinch that win. July, here we come with a full head of steam. Bravo once more!

Oh, uhmm Arpad, always watch the big games in Budapest. Our surprising team is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get. 😉

Guys, I was grinning like a Cheshire cat for 2 days and today found out my little cousin got a job as air hostess! She'll be flying to the UK multiple times.

A) Not seen her in person for over 10 years.
B) She'll be with other airhostesses that are well fit.

Have I actually died and gone to heaven??

Yeah I didn't think it through very clearly. I just saw Croatia and could already see Ante's tears thread after the assured loss so I thought I'd defer the pain til later lol

Also had family come over for lunch so it was an inconvenient time as well.

Oh well doesn't matter, what matters is they won and hopefully keep winning.
