World Cup 2018!

Recommended Posts

:accident:

l am too old to kick myself.

:shock: "but l'm not shocked that l write this"

lt is a half hour before the FlFA Final.

Land-Line Telephone disconnected.

Computer OFF.  [l forgot to take off the door bell. Dang!!!! But.....]

Snacks cooked, organized.

Soda Ready.

Channel on Fox pre-Match.

Sit Down.

Something DISTURBS Me!

SCORE France 2, Croats 1

Uhhhhhhh, "Wake-Up" , l say to myself, eeehhhhhhhh.

Nearly two, yes, 2 HOURS after the Match is over . . .

l wake -up.

:cry:  "l missed the whole Game !"

Drink some coffee.

Turn Computer ON for the highlights.

All l can get is the final score and video of cheering crowds.

:ranting: ":censored:<--censored"

And as l write this, what is reported? The "Four Protestors". Nothing Else but " 4--2".

What is the World's Media Model ?  Monty Python's Flying Circus ?   :dwarf:<---expression of outrage

So now, as another news program comes on, the only ... only promo is:

Cheering Crowds on the Champs de Elise.     :censored:

Oh well, my fellow SCers it is :byecry:[bye bye for me] if l am getting this old.

Now let me get this correct. France/Afrka-United  "WON" .   Right?

LOOK AT QATAR

DO THEY EVEN HAVE ANY PLAYER FROM THEIR OWN COUNTRY?

I think these players or their families migrated to France.

I guess immigrants can never consider their new place to be their land.

@ShiaMan14

Some of the African players are first generation.  That question should be answered by them.

I don't know if you ever heard of this du32, but

I did not see this coming, but it's a competition and somebody has to win. Congrats to everyone who thought France/Afrika-United  would win.

The majority of players were born and raised in France. Is the origin of their parents, grandparents, and distant ancestors matter?

Does their family culture matter to the fact they became professional footballers?

If it wasn't for the almost exclusively immigrant banlieues of Greater Paris, France would've never won the World Cup -- either in 1998 or now.

Sounds like sore loser talk.

Dominating possession is not the aim of the game. It's to score goals.

This wasn't tiki taka. They were actually creating opportunities to score. Dominating possession with sideways passes is very different from consistently creating chances to score. France had two goals in the first half, and ONE shot. (neither of their goals came from that one shot).

The first French goal was indefensible because the free kick which created the goal was an obvious dive.

The second French goal... I dunno, I would not have rewarded that penalty. It looked like it was probably intentional but it barely even affected the trajectory of the ball. You can't reward a team a goal for that.

The third and fourth French goals were legit... but Subasic should have at least have saved one of those. And he would have if he weren't hurt. You saw it yourself: he didn't even move.

It matters in terms of genetics. No standard Frenchman has the genetics of Pogba or Mbappe.

I mean they're free to do what they want but I always found it kind of pathetic. Pogba before the match was talking about how he's a proud Frenchman... I can't respect it.

Perhaps. But the dive didn't create the goal. Bad defending caused the goal.

Clear cut penalty. His hand was sticking out meaning it was not against his body.

He should have saved all 4 goals and then Croatia would have won 2-0.

Luka Modric deservedly got Player of the Tournament.

Both teams played to their strengths. France has a strong defense and hits teams on the counter. Croatia attacks using their wingers. Better defense won.
