    I've been rooting for the teams geographically closest to me (sounds silly I guess, but I'm not a hardcore fan of football, haha), but most of them have been eliminated, so that more or less leaves Uruguay. Hopefully they can get the better of Ronaldo and Portugal.

    I just had to do this, sorry. Yes, I know the pitfalls of "geographically closest", but it's at least much better now. I hope your team Uruguay wins this tournament. Good luck :)

    And now Pique and Iniesta just rushed into a Taxi in hope of meeting Messi and Ronaldo at the airport so they can take a plane back to Spain together.

    Now give me Belgium vs Sweden in the finals and I will acknowledge that somewhere along the road I jumped into a weird timeline.

    Smells kind of rigged.
    I guess the referee made enough money to retire.
    With so many shameless ways to buy time the blues should have given plenty red cards.

    Yeah 2 major mistakes that he didn't whistle plus the Belgian trainer is at fault this match and def he should have punished that what the French were constantly doing. He placed people where they never played before. Plus he decided to only play with 10 people instead of 11 wich is such a major mistake def the half finals. But I saw it coming Eden Hazard shouldn't have been placed on the left flank plus Chadli never plays on the right flank and this match he was for no reason at all

    Finally a world cup match that was actually played at world cup level. The match was great, both teams played well. It was very enjoyable. This should have been the final.
    If Croatia plays like this again, France is toast.
