Well we're down to the final four in the World Cup. Who do you think will win it all? I have no idea.
I am sure the most open last four for some time. At the end it can come down to silly mistakes or blinding brilliance and each team is capable of both.
Then penalties! The most irrational way to decide a world championship. Should be a declared a tie! If two sprinters tied would they be expected to run a best of three sprint off over 50 metres.
A final penalty shootout just means the best team in the world is the one who can best hold its nerve in front of billions of people and then execute a single kick precisely. Not exactly a demonstration of the hard training, skill and persistence that led the team to this point.
I know that's an ideal not a practicality but just wanted to vent!!!!
I believe France will defeat Belgium though I'm rooting for Belgium to win that match. I think England has the better team but Croatia has enough skill to pull a victory or if the hat. I think that will be an exciting game to watch. I'm rooting for England to win.
That puts the final as France vs England and I want England to win.
