It's funny. For some reason FIF just hates Brazil judging by the comments. Everyone knows well they didn't deserve to get knocked out like that but lets hahah and Inter players on final. Guess we're all Europeans lol

No we are Inter fans. Croatia had one Inter player and Brazil didn't so only natural that non Brazilian Inter fans would take croatia's side.

But really Tite got wrong this game, should slap in face some players, play like they are in final already, the whole game they didn’t move the ball quickly, no urgency and let Rodrygo the first one taking penalty …

Never understood Tité's infatuation with Paquetá.

Croatia have always got great results in the WC, i remember Suker in 98 so with amount of ex Inter & Brozo in the squad i am sure everyone here wanted them to win it. Neymar played great but for him not to take that penalty....

Brozo missed a great chance as well and Juranovic had a Maicon esque performance on the right. Props to Croatia who didnt give up after the Neymar goal and even pushed for a second after the equalizer. Congrats to the Fif Croatians as well :cool:

Also forgot the Brazilian squad had 2 gobbi in danilo & Alex sandro two more reasons why neutral interisti won't cheer for them.

Edit:Actually forgot Bremer...

Don't ever go to the World Cup without a single Inter player, Brazil should've called Dalbert so they could advance and play in the final

Pro tip for Brazil next time, send someone to Inter (you had a chance with Bremer, shh)

What we did in last two world cups is an act of God, I dont know how explain this🤣. 3,5 mill population, shitty football infrastructure, stadions, corrupt refeeres, criminals managing clubs, mediocre league and still doing thing like this. In 30 years 6 time participating in WC, two times in semifinals once in fkn final. Unfuckingbelievable.
It's act of a satan actually.
Don't like any of this two teams but for the sake of calm rest of the Advent hoping Brazil can win this so we can get back to our lives without this circus.
Was in shopping,didn't watch until end of the game. It was kind of a win-win situation. Seeing Brazilians crying is always something special.

Another one for stat fans.

Brazil never knocked out a European side with a PL player on their roster, which also started from the 2006 edition.
They didn't have this issue when they had players in the Japanese league in 1994 and 1998 :lol:

Haha, that's such a bullshit fact that only these toxic people in Twitter post here and there. Brazil was superior to Croatia even though I was supporting the latter one. They were just unlucky to not convert these chances they created and also Croatia's goalie was outstanding throughout the game.

The same cannot be said for Argentina for example. They were pis poor entire tournament and still managed to get away with that. Such a shame that they will be going higher than Brazil despite being absolute dogshit.

it works for them in tournaments. Italy also used to park the bus after a goal, so why change it if it clearly works. Same can be said for Portugal and England, who also played better than their opponents, but still lost. I would like to see Croatia win this whole thing, cause I am half Croat, but i won't deny that they play horrible.

Nothing unlucky when you don't take your chances, that is on you as a player.

Not always, because football is not a science. In football to become successful you have to be lucky as well.

Disagree about playing horrible. There is no way to reach semifinals in WC and past through this Brazil if you play horrible. On contrary, we tactically owned them, Vinicius, Rafinha and Richarlison were totally neutralized, our midfield make their suffer and players from Croatian league were those that created a finally scored against them. How about that😎
We played our way and that was the only way to try to stop them, there is so many quality right there in Brasil team, you cant play fluid an all atack football against them, it would be suicide. Ofc they'll have their chances and you need your keeper to step up and that happened. For me, last 30 minutes against Belgium and first 45 min against Japan was not good. Other than that was good to great. Against Brazil it was epic performance, we beat team that has much better players, much more quality in roster, they were one of favorites to win WC and they played fantastic tournament till we stop that. You cant do that playing horrible and you are wrong.
