Fuck Croatia
It looked like a one sided game benefiting the Croatians by the Ref.
England is going to suffer for this loss.

I didn't see any issues with the ref that was outside any of the other calls during the Cup. Interesting the perspective though as the entire bar where I watched the game was talking about how the refs were favoring England.

That said, 5 minutes extra time in the second overtime? Are you kidding me? If that wasn't crazyfavorable to England, I don't know what was.

None of it matters....France is peaking right at the correct time (enough to beat the winner of the Brazil/Mexico match and since). I'd be surprised if they don't take it.

Sunday will be spent with the newly arrived G/F and Patron-aritas at the local Mexican establishment to watch the game.

England had the first half and Croatia had the rest. Nuff said. Wanted to see France vs England but Im ok with Croatia. Actually, I think it is Frances Cup to loose but believe Croatia matches up better than England. Ymmv....

France is young and more that two players can run, create space, and finish with less than three touches. Croatia had their work cut out for them.

Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovi presented POTUS with a gift today before the big game. Might want to leave that on AF1 when you touch down in the UK, Mr. President.

This entire World Cup reminds me of my college football coach who always said: We lose if we don't win. Truly, he was a visionary.

He is just trying to make stormy jealous.

Do not do a picture image search on any computer that has oversight.

To keep it within the realm of ftbol, When I was playing both were either number four or number five. I think they recently introduced the number three for children.

When I was playing balls were either number four or number five. I think they recently introduced the number three for children.

Unless I am mistaken she is sporting a pair of number fives.

Size 1 is a skills ball. Circumference is 18-20.

Competition (and practice) balls are sizes 3, 4, and 5, based on age group.

As an experienced retired Div I college referee, I would offer my expertise in evaluating the proper firmness of her 5s, using the two-hand method...

Play ON!

I’ve been using a Fox sports app through my cable provider.

Inlaws of the way for wife’s birthday. Hopefully, I can catch the second half and the fat lady has not even begun to warm up!!!

Yeah but that is not free. Cause you have cable. Pretty tired today so was hoping to watch from home on my phone. I don't have a TV or Cable or wifi. If not guess will drive over to parents house and watch on TV and deal with all the drama (many relatives staying at their house this weekend).

FWIW, I don't even care that much about soccer, but I've had a blast cheering on Croatia since we were there for vacation during the start of the World Cup. Aaaand... anybody but France.

Let's do this.

About the only soccer I watch/follow are the last several matches of the World Cup every four years.
