I think people are underestimating Portugal.

Portugal has a tough draw at the start vs Spain. That sounds like a interesting match.

Must be nice for Russian fans to get such a good start. Saudis did not look like pros with their unforced errors.

Great Defense by Iran and a big victory for them. I missed the Uruguay game somehow. Spain vs Portugal sounds exciting.

I am surprised Belgium had trouble with Australia. I guess the aussies are better then I thought. Croatia sure looked awesome!

I think the Serbs were robbed in this game with the Swiss. The Serbian guy was obviously double-fouled in the box and no call. I think that changed the game.

Competition is intense. Argentina just squeezed through. Anyone know who Maradona was flipping off at the end? That guy is pretty unprofessional.

Croatia will play France in a few days for the world cup trophy. If this doesn't light a fire under the FA's ass to start working towards striving for a higher level of football in Armenia, then nothing will.

France dominated this game. This tournament was the best one I have seen (and I have seen many). Perhaps one day we will see Armenia in the WC. Some things worth noting were the many own goals, the use of instant replay, more evidence that small nations can succeed on this level, more proof that a superstar cannot carry the team to final victory in this game (except maybe Maradona). I very much enjoyed this cup despite Holland and Italy not being in it. I do wish the final was more competitive but the tournament overall was wonderful!

The better team lost today. Two weak calls given France's way particularly that Griezmann foul.

Croatia was not the better team today. France was faster and looked more dangerous. Even when they had the lead and drooped back to defend, they were still more dangerous. Pogba and that young kid were giving the Croatia defense more then they could handle.

Dont forget about LeRef, France's best player on the night. Come on man, go rewatch the match and tell me that disjointed french side were better. The Croats outplayed them for most of the match and had a Griezmann ghost foul and a penalty call go against them. These types of incidences can set you back at this stage to the point of no return.

Not saying France wouldn't have won otherwise, but Croatia had their backs against the wall from the get go and still outshined France. They did a good job of stifling that overrated speech merchant mbappe for a while until the injured Subašic let in 2 easy goals imo.
