That third penalty kick by Croatia sure took a lucky ricochet for them...

Wow. Probably one of the best games in the quarters by the team not making past the next round.

My pick since group play has been Belgium.

The book makers are putting France, Uruguay, and Belgium at something like 29%, 28%, 27%. Croatia picking up the balance.

If there is a bet, I will take Belgium to win the Cup.

I still think the kids soccer team running down the field was the best of the bunch.

But how many Thai cave kids get to go to the Final?

England v France would be a great match only if England wins, otherwise losing to France in the final is just too abhorrent.

Though Griezmann didn't produce, he ran his ass off. Ronaldo play hard both ways, Messi, not so much. Are the days of the lounging striker coming to an end? I understand each team plays a different system but maybe it's the optics I just don't like.

I'm still pulling for England. Chances are I will be at a local expat British pub for the match tomorrow and enjoy the madness !!

France is looking very strong right now - but I will definitely be rooting for England if it's France-England in finals.

I have no idea who to pull for, but since a friend's lineage is Croatian, I guess I'll pull for them.

I really have no rooting interest in either team.

Last 20 minutes of this game has been great. Would love to see Croatia pull of the W.

Aaaand, it’s Croatia over England in OT, 2-1. Well played. They’re still playing, but ENG is worn out. I’m predicting...

FRA v CRO will meet in the final game.

Congratulations to Croatia. They've done well coming from behind and were pretty classy when they inadvertently tackled the cameraman after the game winner. Should be a great Final.

If one of Croatian shots didn't bounce off the post we'd have 1:3 to Croatia in the end.
They had a period of game after equalizing where they could've shot 2 or more. Impressive ability. First half was a little boring IMO, I was actually wondering what happened to Croatia.
Good match with pretty even teams.

Wife was on a call with the UK this PM, EST.

Radio silence and then a combination of cussing and other improper language ensued around the 108 minute...

Croatia has heart!!!
