    Jolly good. It looks like it will be a bit of a bunfight.

    I just love the way the announcers call the games.
    Agreed that the announcers are fantastic, so expressive, quick witted and brutally honest.

    • Watching England play is like watching the Riders play, lol. Only 3 near heart attacks this game...

      • Does England choke away another world cup game??

        • A seemingly harmless header, a fullback caught flat footed and nice finish from Mandzukic. 2-1 Croatia, just like that.

            Iím gonna have to look that guy up and say well I guess the game of soccer is in trouble now that it wonít be a France/England final.

            • Not to take away from Croatia, but and England / France final would have been un-freaking-believable...

              • Is it just me, or would you need a compound fracture to a leg to leave your team with 10 in that game?

                Even if you can barley walk, you could stand in the wall for one of those set pieces.

                  Disagree. I think these 2 teams are most deserving of the final and also played the most exciting soccer in the tournament. I am pumped!!!

                    I just think in terms of historic rivalries, that nothing would ever touch England and France in the finale of the World Cup. Croatia definitely deserved to be there. To win that game in extra time was amazing. Plus they went to extra time against Russia and penalties and took them out too. Before that Denmark in penalties. They have played a lot of soccer and their fitness level is outstanding.

                    But I deeply wanted to see England/France. Would have been off the hook.

                      For sure, although the 1966 Final when England defeated West Germany was pretty amazing. In that year, the 4 finalists were all from Europe, similar to the current Cup.

                          Nope, Croatia has world class players. They are solid throughout. Should be a great game.

                              Modrič was the best midfielder in the entire tournament ... love that guy.

                                French team is just too fast, too young for the old war horse Croatian. France will control most of the game and once they break through for the 1st goal, it will be over.. Average age for the Croatian team is ~30..French ~22..8 years are a lots of wear and tear on the soccer player's body.
