I think this world cup i saw more entertainment matches then the last two world cups.

Im feeling that this final be very interesting. Not like the boring Argentina Germany and Netherland Spain
Really? With shitty fixtures like Croatia - Russia all up to the quarter finals because the cool countries are out, I feel like this has been the most boring one in a long time. I think the final will be horrendous, with one team playing at 50% capability and the other defensively with poor attack.

To be honest I'd rather have stronger top teams than "exciting" mid tier teams. England fluking themselves to the final is not my idea of a great World Cup.

It started out great, but with all the injuries/suspensions, and lopsidedness Germany flunking caused, it ruined the balance.

It´s not because there is no top team.. but Russia-Croatia was a good match. Brazil Belgium with Brazil being unlucky but belgium has great players.

Uruguay Portugal and Argentina France was amazing too. And now round of 4 is coming!

The excitement ends in round of 16 bcs half bracket if full of top teams while the other half is full of flukes.

A Russian couple named Arsen and Lyudmila filed for divorce when he celebrated Messi's goal against Nigeria and she insisted that Ronaldo was a better player than Messi. The divorce was filed the next morning in the city of Chelyabinsk [Argumenty i Fakty]

The former Swedish ref Jonas Eriksson has talked about the attitude of some of the players he has met over the time. Source: https://www.expressen.se/sport/fotbollsvm/svt-profilens-brutala-sagning-av-stjarnan/

Google translate:

In the studio he has contributed with a new perspective, namely the judges, and at the beginning of the championship he offered a solid saw by the Swiss captain Stephan Lichtsteiner.

During his long career career, Jonas Eriksson has encountered most of the world's stars, and in SVT's broadcast, he revealed how the right-back can behave on a soccer field.

He is a special player. I have met several international players and to judge a person, they have to meet them several times - and not just once when they have a bad day. Because everyone can have it. Lichtsteiner I have met several times and he is one of the most unpleasant players I met, "said Eriksson.

Eriksson's hard word about Modric: "Arrogant"
The Swedish judiciary developed:

- Can not talk to him, he is angry and angry. I'm trying to explain, I'm trying to be humble, but he's hard to get in touch with. It creates a bad mood. He also has a way to create bad mood against his opponents.

Prior to Wednesday's semi-final between Croatia and England, Eriksson reveals once again details of a football star. Again, it's about a team captain - Croatia's Luka Modric.

And they are not flattering.

"He's definitely not one of the players I'll miss the most. He is quite arrogant and tired, does not want to talk and he never acknowledges an error. He shruggs his shoulders and is nonchalant. Many players have a great side but he is not one of them, "says Eriksson in SVT's broadcast.

I'm not surprised about that Juve cunt but Modric surprises me.

People says its boring because many big team didnt make it, for me the underdog who made this WC more interesting who thought Japan almost ousted Belgium and they need late 90" min goal winner, thats the real joy of football even if Japan lost but they show how is football should done.

Of course, most athletes are delusional morons, especially in football. If it wasn't for sport 99% of them would be working blue collar jobs at best, but now that they're popular and are getting paid handsomely they think they amount to something more than regular people. I mean, look no further than our own Epic Brozo. Probably an absolute retard in real life, but a quality player on the pitch. Also Lovren boasting how he dragged Liverpool and Croatia to finals and demanding that people recognise him as one of the best central defenders.

:yao: Get a fucking grip.

None of the teams in the last 16 were that good.

Come on Belgium barely beat fking Japan.

All the games go to PKs.

One thing in the Fox sported deportees the announcers saying the euro leagues are too long so these dudes come in injuries or are just tired from playing 40-60 games that year. Interesting idea but Croatia and France have ton of guys on some of the best teams in the world

To me France is possibly the worst team I have seen make a final. So shocked that Uruguay shit the bed.

Watching this World Cup no team stood out. No player stood out. It was an ok WC where England basically said hey let me lose and I have an 90% shot of making the final

A few of you said the WC was pointless and you like club football better. It will only get worse when they add 16 more shit teams.

Only team I was impressed with at all was Croatia and I hope they win. They had the toughest group and have a great play style. No one else impressed me. Super annoyed with South America. Uruguay and Colombia shit their pants when it mattered. Peru crapped the bed from the start and Argentina let Messi coach. Brazil could and should have easily won this thing(glad they didn’t becauSe fk them) but Neymar’s Antics in the 1st 4 games had the ref not call anything in their favor.

I also hate VAR. It should be like the NFL everything can be challenged to an extent. Any pk, red card, direct free kick, goal, corner.

Too many refs were just like fk it I am god we aren’t reviewing shit!!

France has managed to knock off Uruguay, Belgium, and Argentina with relative ease. Somehow that's less deserving than having to beat two teams on PKs and one in extra time? Croatia's marquee win this tournament is who exactly? An Argentine team that France has also beaten, or an England team everyone here likes to dunk on?

These people are legit fucking morons. Aren't those "hot women" people just like the rest of us? You're going out of your way to censor someone on screen, in an effort to protect an entire gender, even though they are just as much a member of that gender as anyone else.

Oh come on, you know as well as I do that cameras go out of their way to specifically find hot women in the stands. There are websites dedicated to pictures taken of hot chicks at games. It's not like the new instructions are "if you see a pretty girl, don't show her."

To Dylan's point, this would be low of my priority list if I was FIFA, but whatever.
