Work is going to keep me away from the first game, but if the dogs are smiling I should be home for the second, until then...

While from an England fan perspective, I'd prefer Netherlands or Croatia in the final, from a football fan perspective, nothing would be cooler than a Brazil/Argentina semi-final.

Should be an interesting day!

Without a team in this, I'd just like to see Morocco continue throwing a wrench into the FIFA gears.

I hate listening to Donovan, Dempsy and Lalas  tell people how to win when they never have. shut up. they should bring in the women's team since they actually know what it takes to win. it it more than big hair and an ugly beard..
pathetic.

Or, hear me out, they could just not have ANY Americans on the broadcast crew.

*JAP got higher ranking than CRO/MOR even not making the quaterfinals due to fair play (using Group stage tie-breaker rules)

CONMEBOL still performing better in average.

I like that one Croatian.

the Brazilians have announced war on eye brows. I thought it was just pubes.

Masked Korean player was going for a hero vibe. Masked Croatian for a Hannibal Lecter or Luis Suarez deal.
 
2022-12-09 10:08:43 AM  
So are Croatia just going to man mark Neymar out of the game?
 
2022-12-09 10:13:38 AM  
Nice cross.
Perisic mishiats it.

Juranuvic's pass got Brazil to tighten Theiranuvics

First time I see Brazil team-A struggling in this WC. Croatia is a good contender.

The Swiss gave them a good run for about 80+ mins. But then Portugal crushed the Swiss. So Portugal minus C Ronaldo > Brazil.
 
2022-12-09 10:24:24 AM  
The US would be down 3-0 to either of these teams at this point of the match. High level soccer is insane

Is Danilo wear high heels with his boot that high up?

Most likely this is the last WC game ever for either Modrić or Thiago Silva (can't believe he is 38). Feel sad for both.

Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuch. 

Ton of slammin' going on out there today.

Just a bit.    Lots of back and forth...  It's going to be whoever makes the most mistakes.

Its Neyman....I'll allow it
 
2022-12-09 10:32:36 AM  
Brazil is leaving many spaces in its left side.
I've seeing the exact same play by Croatia from the keeper all the way to the front twice already.

Neymar


JFC I shouldnt be auditing reports and watching at same time

Croatia winning the midfield battle, Brazil can't get anything going.
 
2022-12-09 10:36:18 AM  
Wow, this match sucks.
 
2022-12-09 10:41:12 AM

"Far be it from me to tell Neymar what to do, but I'm going to do exactly that."

Stunning color commentary.
 
2022-12-09 10:43:02 AM  
Croatian wall was more of a liability.
 
2022-12-09 10:43:46 AM  
At least Namar's FK was on goal.  Lots of back and forth with no real chances...

Watching telemundo. No idea what is being said but still better than Fox Sports

Juranuvic took over Ajer's flat opposite me.

You know, I can see Brazil losing this. I don't know another team with Croatia's game management skills.
 
2022-12-09 10:47:34 AM  
Very tactical first half.
 
2022-12-09 10:47:41 AM  
Half of it done.   Not much to it.   Wow.  Unexpected this is.
 
2022-12-09 10:48:36 AM  
This is seriously one POS match. Nearly all the action is taking place within 20 meters of mid-field. Croatia has zero offense. Boring AF.
 
2022-12-09 10:48:36 AM  
I could see this one going all the way to PK's.   Then it's anyone's game.

Weird Game.

It's The Simpson's soccer meme come to life.

It's a smart strategy from Croatia to choke Brazil's offense out of the game, but they really do need to launch an occasional counter attack.
 
2022-12-09 10:50:52 AM  
I can tell Croatia did its homework and came well prepared to face Brazil.
 
2022-12-09 10:52:27 AM  
Croatia has zero incentive to play in a way that lets Brazil play how *they* want to play.

This is exactly the game I was expecting to get.

Do you actually think this crap is exciting to watch? Maybe try to get some offense going and score a goal, try to win the game?

So go away. We promise not to miss you.

Croatia aren't trying to be exciting, they are trying to win. Stifle and frustrate Brazil, wait for the ego players to be out of position or get carded. Then the stiletto.

If it's Croatia/Portugal in the semis then I will paint a wall in Reno, just to watch it dry.
