Croatia goal :grinning::grinning:


#245

Loving Maradona’s face :joy:, Croatia have deserved this win


#246

Yes !! they did !! I won 70 euros :smile: (bet 5)


#247

Nice to watch 2 teams actually playing football, rather than trying to cheat their way to a win, especially after the embarrassing performance from Brazil earlier.


#248

Lucky bastards


#249

Come on Japan and poland ! (ok, I bet 5 again, Germany and Great britain did their job ok, let’s hope for the upcoming matches ! :joy::rofl: )


#250

#251

Not surprised Marie. Great Britain weren’t even playing! :laughing:


#252

It would be totally appropriate, really, if a team living on past glories cheated its way to the trophy of a competition organised by a corrupt institution and taking place in a corrupt nation.

Given that the Scots, Welsh, Northern Irish and Irish teams didn’t qualify and that Iceland have been knocked out, I’ve kind of lost interest, really. Love an underdog, I do :roll_eyes:

Jesus! I’ve only got it on in the background; this is like watching Brazil -v- Brazil. Suarez is embarrassing! Why can VAR not be used to book him for faking head injuries (at least twice in this half)?


#257

Wow. What a match. France - Uruguay will be interesting!


#258

Who’d thought that Spain would go out?


#259

Russia win fully deserved. Backs to the wall for 120 minutes, but got the result. Spain were obviously the better team but couldn’t do anything in the final third.


#260

I missed the game, just saw the penalty shoots. Was gonna ask how both team played . Well done Russia. Nice for the Russian people.


#261

️"Russisches Sommermärchen" ahead? :soccer:


#262

Allez Les Bleus!


#263

With any luck, Belgium will win this evening, so there are no South Americans in the semis. Play-acting cheats.
