*Looks at roster of all squads*
Yeah.....Nobody f*cking thought Iceland and Nigeria would go over a Croatian team with Real Madrid Juventus and Barclona players. Are you delusional? You were even labeled as a dark horse before the tournament began because everyone knows Argentina is too inconsistent due to a lack of effort at these tournaments. If you think Iceland or Niger were favorites over Croatia then you are delusional.
It's called luck when the draw plays out in your favor and all the heavy weights of that tournament ended up on the other side of the draw. Call it whatever you will. When Serbia won the U20 WC, we got lucky with the draw as well. For small countries like ours, you need luck to win a tournament or go far but you can't f*cking deny it. That's just ignorant and small-minded.
Mate, you absolutely were not even the 3rd best team at the tournament.
France, Belgium, Brazil then Croatia/Mexico (only put them here cause they were playing some beautiful football and they beat you guys last time around). Like I said, you got lucky in the draw. Nothing wrong with luck. But you have to face the reality when it slaps you in the face.
If you truly think Croatia was better in the final then I don't know what to tell you. Allowing 4 goals off sloppy defense is not being better by any definition. The result would have been worse if their GK wasn't trying to do his best Neuer impression [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.xtratime.org/forum/images/smilies/originals/howler.gif[/IMG]
Nobody is minimizing your achievement. However, you're acting like you were the best team at the tournament which is hilarious.
for someone that claims they know something about this game, you obviously know Jack-shit!
Over the course of these past few years, Iceland has consistently beaten Turkey, they beat Czech Republic, they beat Holland, they tied Portugal, they beat England, tied Argentina... but maybe this is why you guys lose and do shit...cause you don't respect the quality of other teams.
Mexico is a very good soccer Nation, we know that BUT, there was no comparison between Mexico and us this past World Cup! They struggled vs S Korea, got smashed vs Sweden and were not able to handle much from a decent (not great) Brazil team.
Croatia entered this past World Cup with major issues with the savez. The Torcidasi were hanging banners in Split stating "sve izgubili, dabogda"! Yugo tree huggers/commies and anti Croatia but pro Hajduk dogs were in full form, regurgitating the same retarded stories day in, day out...trying to get people to not support Croatia and the HNS!
you said your savez sucks, thats why you guys are horrible. well, we have the same issues and yet our team rose above the politics. you don't give us credit for winning 6 games in a row, stating our competition wasn't strong and that we were lucky. how good was Sweden? Mexico lost to them but you claimed they were better than us...or was that just shit slinging cause you have no ****ing clue what you're talking about...as usual?!
playing any team in their home stadium is always a challenge. if you can't acknowledge that, you are clearly delusional. playing Russia, in Russia, at the World Cup is never going to be an easy win and yet, we bounced back from being down. why are you playing that down? we then beat England, who also took the lead against us...we dominated them as well, just as we did France...BUT you tend to see things through your demented ways!
Croatia were very unfortunate to get that ref on that day in the finals! we were the better team, hands down! sending long balls as a strategy for them was easy to defend but going into the second half, having to score when truly they should have been tied or even 0-1 down to us made for a different game.
if you are 90% right in your forums then stick to those forums cause here, you really demonstrate you are full of shit!
