Well that's disappointing. I was hoping for a France/England final with all of those big names playing.

I was rooting for England but let's face it - they had an easy draw.

They already played Belgium once in a glorified friendly in the group stage. If Belgium wants to win this and puts their best out there, they will destroy England.

They should easily win the final IMO. Croatia have played almost an entire extra game and a half just with OT. They have got to be dead at this point. I love the grit from them though so maybe they will put on a better showing than I think.

Plenty of big name players from huge clubs playing for Croatia.

Plus they’ve already won me money and all I can do is win more if they beat Les Bleus.

But I do agree that there are some guys in the 5'10" to 6'2" range that have the body type to play soccer.

However, soccer is very much a skill sport. Arguably the best player ever is 5' 7" and 2 of the 5 best players during this WC are Luka Modric (5' 8" 145 lbs) and Eden Hazard 5' 8" 170 lbs).

The question to me is are there undersized guys who are killer athletes that are trying to make it in basketball and football that never go pro that could have very successful soccer careers?
Cristiano Ronaldo is 6'1 or 6'2. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is 6'5. A bunch of great non-goalkeepers throughout history were 6 ft and above.

Of course, as you alluded to, all goalkeepers are taller and bigger than most of their squads.

For the first time in history, the 2022 WC will be played in November-December. To no one's surprise, players and teams are not happy about it.

That would be a great burn except those Spurs helped them go the farthest the've advanced since 1990. So I'd say those Spurs players made them the best England team in a very long time.

So glad Croatia beat England. We fought a war in the 1770s to 1780s that said I didn't have to care about England anymore.

Yeah it is right in the middle of seasons for all these clubs. It could possibly decide the winners of so many leagues.

The easy path they had also helped them a good bit. The two real quality teams they faced they lost to. Twice to Belgium and once to Croatia. England did well the first 25-30 minutes of the Croatia game then the major flaws in the team were exposed. Croatia took over in the midfield and started to dictate the pace of them game.

Harry Kane is a great player even though he plays for Spurs, but he looked average at best all tourney. He won the golden boot off of 3 pens, and one goal he had no idea about that deflected off of him. Yes a goal is a goal but he didn't really earn the golden boot IMO.

I think Kane was injured against Colombia and was never fully fit after that

We lus he was dropping too deep since he wasn’t getting any service or creative midfield play. England really need a #10 type to create better opportunities.

Seems the City players- stones, walker are to blame for the Croatia loss.

Doesn’t really matter to me though since Croatia won me money. Hopefully they will win me a little more today since I’m the only person in my pool with them winning it all.
