France vs Belgium has the potential to be Game of The Tournament, which means it’ll probably be shit


#680

It’s been said before that stats mean nothing, hasn’t it? England aren’t good because they beat Sweden, Colombia, Panama, and Tunisia.


#681

They’re not stats based purely on WC wins or it’ll be 50 / 50


#682

It sucks that there’s no games until Wednesday.


#683

Tuesday. Unless time zone malarkey


#684

Yes, France vs Belgium is playing tomorrow kl. 20:00 and Croatia vs England is on wednesday kl. 20:00 :grinning:, it would be cool if Englang won on wednesday :blush:.


#685

Whoops. 20 characters.


#686

Its Monday and im still hungover from Saturday. If they actually get to the final the whole country will be in meltdown!
My prediction is a France vs England final.


#687

You lightweight. :wink:

I’m also want France vs England. But a part of me wants Belgium and England so Pickford and Courtois can share notes on who has the worst defence.


#688

Yea well the Tournament is shaping up pretty much like I had hoped even with the United States not in in.

As long as Brazil, Argentina, Germany, Russia ain’t make it I’m happy.

Now to sit back and watch my France win it all.


#689

Haha it was a heavy one mate that’s for sure! I can already feel next Mondays hangover if they make the final.

:joy: has to be Belgium surely?!!


#690

Everyone thinking England will beat Croatia has me like :joy:


#691

Well they haven’t actually played anyone good so far this tournament, so who knows.


#692

Neither have England (Sweden doesn’t count.)


#693

England have won a larger percentage of the previous meetings, both teams have much better squads now. Croatia been poor in their last 2 games struggling to beat Denmark and Russia

Based on that and only that. I believe an England win is more likely


#694

As long England learn to think ahead 2 steps, then they would be good. So many times I see them pass the ball and stop in a “well I did my job” mentality. They need to pass, knowing the step his teammate is going to take and on that basis, be ready to attack before the other team know. They only see what’s ahead of them instead to thinking ahead.

Maybe England wants the highest received passing rate %. :joy:


#695

It’s now or never for us.

Come on Belgium!


#696

I think they way England set up wont favour Croatia. England have a lot of pace in the team and there back 4 have looked poor at times, they’ll play to flood the midfield as its were their strongest, Modric, Rakitic & Perisic are unplayable at times but we’ll see. England need to be at 100% as its definitely there biggest test yet.


#697

Guys it is a quiz (here in Norway and I can win a Tissot Tour de France special edition watch :blush:), about how many times Belgium have been in the world cup finals, is it 0, 1 or 2?
Does someone know this?

That’s what I read as well, but:

I can only choose between 0, 1 or 2 :flushed:!? :joy:.

Edit.

It looks like it’s 0?:


Agree, i’m confused as well, but from wikipedia it looks like Belgium have never played the final in the FIFA World Cup?

That was what I thought as well, so I answered 0, I never win quizzes like this, but i’m doing it just for the fun and it dosen’t cost anything :joy:.
