Poor France, final game played one day after Bastille Day.

Today in the match for the 3rd place and 4th place Belgium won 2-0 to England. So Belgium got the 3rd place and the bronce medal and England got the 4th place. But Harry Kane possibly will get the Golden Boot as the World Cup scorer.

I was expecting an easy win for France, I guess you can never tell. Still early yet though.

Edit: Okay scratch that last comment LOL.

That referee gave advantage to France. Croatia did the best they could to win. But France won. I always going to remember this Croatia for the rest of my life. They put their heart and soul on every match they played.

I wanted Croatia to win because I doubt we would see them in the final for a very long time. Germany, Spain, Brazil, Argentina could be back to full force by the next World Cup.

I guess France won't get past the group stages of the 2022 World Cup.

Great final game! Many final games are usually boring.

Me too, was rooting all out for Croatia and they played well, but I gotta give it to France, they did a great job.

I was rooting for Croatia, because, I always support "weaker" teams, but alas. They were very good, but they couldn't turn their god game into goals and this is a death sentence when you are playing with such disciplined opponent as France.

But in general, the match was exceptional - it had everything: penalty, awkward goal, drama, random people on the field. And most of all: beautiful football.

Well, now onto waiting Euro 2020.

Aside from the game against Argentina, France didn't really impress me much (cue Shania Twain)... quite negative at times, quite defensive, sneak a goal (or get handed one by the ref) and then play counter attack. For such a talented team, it's a strange way to go about things.

It will be always the well known teams who are going to win the World Cup. FIFA will never allowed that a country like Croatia to be the champions.
France won with that Argentinian referee's help. Croatia was robbed

Luka Modrić and his team won my heart.

I don't watch those, because, our TV always swap rights which channels show UEFA and when.
Sometimes, I think, they don't broadcast any matches at all.

No, this is something completely new, he doesn't mean Champions League here. It's a mini tournament for European national teams, but doing well means qualification for the European Cup in 2020...

The idea with the UEFA Nations League is to play less boring international friendly games.
