France v Argentina had everything you could hope from a knockout game. The lead changing hands, magnificent goals and probably the right result in the end.
Uruguay v Portugal had a difficult task to live up to such shimmering brilliance. The Cavani goal on the back of the most glorious ‘one two’ came exceedingly close. One things for sure, Uruguay will be difficult to beat. I keep expecting Simeone to be their manager.
On to today….
Spain should be too strong for the hosts unless that home advantage proves to be a following wind blowing the Russians to victory.
Again, Eddie and VP’s Croatia should have too much quality for the Danes, whose great journey seems destined to end here.
I abrogate all responsibility for posts until my return early August.
By which time France will have won the WC and Emery will have molded a PL winning squad
Kon nu Danmark.
Vi er røde, Vi er hvide
Vi står sammen,, side om side
what chance do you give the mighty Danes as a percentage?
25% or less.
Bye Erik, happy hols
Pavard goal, best so far for you too?
I don’t have same level of expectation for today’s games as I did for Fr Arg, but you never know
gubi se Danska!!
i thought Mbabe’s goal yesterday were both outstanding. Mind you, there were so many
I am sad that Argentina and Portugal are gone, and France and Urugway remain. I’d much rather it was the other way round.
I love the Rosickyesque nature of this beauty
yes, Nacho’s goal was unbelievable. How did he kick it with that side of his foot? Was it a fluke or an amazing technique?
with Portugal gone, my prediction of a Portugal Croatia final seems less likely, not unlikely just less likely
Eddie, we would say, Danmark će izgubiti
VP – forget it. I think it might be us against Brazil
Actually expect Spain to lose today they haven’t been great thus far in the competition
And needing a dubious goal to get them qualified
Surely no goal was better than Xhaka goal
Thanks for goals Chas
there have been some crackers for sure
Best Arsenal goal, Freddie-baby.
The Serb player ducking out of the way spoilt it a touch for me. Though he would have been knocked out if it had caught him in the face. 🙂
Ok, nice call Fred. I never saw that one
Right, we have a 40mm rain downpour alert. Would be nice for me trees and bushes and force me to watch football all day. Again.
Blimey, in 25yrs, I ve never seen Devon so dry and scorched. Barely a dribble left in the rivers
All change. PM footie off. Surfing on. Happy day ahead. Back for Croatia Denmark
Have nice days one and all
Spain, like Argentina ( and too often like last season’s Arse) pass, pass, pass, and little end product. Mr Emery please find a way to produce “dynamic” final balls……and convince Jack he could stay.
In the absence of Eddie, I hope the Russkies win
How is Liam coping with the heat?
Actually, I think I’d rather Spain win as they are capable of great football especially if they go a goal down
Hope our new CBs are as good as the Russian ones.
I think we may already have better than we think, just better drilling, although not saying I don’t think one new expert wouldn’t go amiss
mmm, brown envelopes in the VAR room it is then
penalties at long last
yip love ’em
Golovin is worth whatever it costs, in my opinion.
great save for sure
Excellent result after a shite game.
Spain are tediousness personified.
You should see me chart!!! Tatters works.
Remember me bragging about getting the last 2 and winner right last time, and you saying it isn’t hard as only four teams can win, well, wow
Germany, Spain and Argentina out before the quarters
The England half of the draw has Russia, Swe, Swz, Den, Col and Croatia
This guy is a genius
That Spain of old micky
I find golovin had a poor one today
I have NOT got it right,
I had Germany Brazil final
then went for Spain once the Germans were out
I now quit
didit – become a Croat like me
They going home next round Eddie
pee off freddie
The VAR room for that penalty decision https://t.co/wI6iXhVpfx
De Gea has as many saves in this WC as Suarez did in 2010
Late to this one as well
If crowd is anything to go by I haven’t missed much
How do you earn a crust in Trinidad?
From what I’ve seen, Micky, it’s been pretty tedious.
Mandzukic has been a complete shithousing nobhead, the rest has been two teams largely cancelling each other out, Stoke versus West Bromwich style.
We were spoilt yesterday, that’s the problem.
Oh crap and I bought a ticket for the second half, let’s hope it doesn’t go to extra time
ha ha ha Fred
Just seen your VAR room
Funnily enough I was thinking what message was being transmitted to the ref through his ear piece
“remember that £2k a night hooker you were drooling over in the hotel last night? Yours 24/7 for a month. Free. No pen, ok”
is this a boring game, or I am losing concentration again
halle bloody luya, what a shit game that was
extra time? No thank you, i am off
Yea they should have ended the game after the 2 goals and go straight to penalties
Eriksen playing worse than mesut and sure he isn’t going to get any type of crytism
Boring Eddie, trying to figure out which one more boring this or the game before
At last, some quality action
I think Mesut created more clear chances for his team than any other player so far
loved the way Caspar schmeikel dummied right, then went left to save
Nice for VP
Erik, you still have your proper country left
Yea that what I meant micky mesut created chances and was criticised but eriksen did nothing and no criticism
Certain goal to win it snuffed out with a professional foul
Goalkeepers loomed large
Schmeicel ended up saving 3 penalties and goes home
Subasic saves 3 penalties and onwards
The drama around Modric taking his 2nd penalty
time for breakfast in between
what more can you ask for in a world cup game
you know how world cup 98 was in france right… you know Dida was there right.. you know Dida was fucking bitches right? you know Mbappe was born in 98 right.. https://t.co/TxWP0eoqmj
we won?? excellent!! I had fallen asleep, bloody boring Danes, I told you about them. They get excited about windmills, that’s all there is to them
