This is worse than the boat, they were thumping on passing cars @ St. George's Bay, Malta. RIU Police were soon on the spot.

It's incredible how much people risk. Lucky not to encounter a nervous, impatient or a bad tempered driver. Or maybe a Croatian... Safety in numbers won't save you in that case. ](*,)

But what about Tolisso? Are people not happy for him? Well he is "impure" and "not European" I suppose

Yes political, cultural and social reasons.

For such a team to defeat the European inspirational Croatians is especially difficult to swallow. As a Native European I would have preferred an Argentina, Japan or Senegal to win than this.

I will take a step back from the sport for a bit. The disappointment of this event goes deeper than simply athletics.


Even if what you say about France were true and they're not Europeans (I disagree completely), it's not as if Europeans have a natural right to always win the WC.

The best team in the tournament won. That is all that should matter. Or would you rather see more Chelseas and Portugals?

If I had to sit thru Croatia losing then yes a 4 goal showing was entertaining

On the subject of France/Europeans - I feel no sense of this team or their performance being a representation of UEFA. I view them as mercenaries. There isn't that sense of accomplishment like when Germany won on South American soil in 2014. Are these French players European? I think so but I feel absolutely no accomplishment with their performance. When I google and see articles written about how this team represents a victory for immigrants in Europe it makes me sick and reinforces why I was always against them. Native Europeans were united behind Croatia and immigrants were united behind France. To me it illustrates the increasing difficult road ahead for Western Europe. But as someone that still lives in America, this isn't a surprise. Race is a constant mental obstacle. I spent the past month in Poland and it has been very refreshing to avoid that mental burden. This was the least racist and race focused month ive enjoyed in maybe 10 years. I have 1 more week in Poland and i am really dreading the return "to the West"[/quote]

Well stay then... Maybe it will put your distortion into perspective over time... I'm not an immigrant...

Watch at 1:40. There is contact. Griezmann did fall easily but every other player would have done the same.

Football is a limited contact sport, isn’t it? :roll: he was already going down by the time there was “contact”

I’m more so sad about Croatia losing than France winning.

Croatia was such a romantic underdog story that you’d have to be heartless to not fall in love with it! (Apparently many here are that damn cold!)

I wanted to see a first time winner playing against a mighty pre tournament favorite! Alas “luck” went in the bigger teams’ favor (again)

As for the penalty, players have to use hands for leverage during set pieces and if the ball unintentionally hits your arm, IMO it is harsh, same as Bastian two years ago. Penalty for handballs should be in clear and obvious cases only because you’re giving a team literally a free shot at goal.

http://www.espnfc.com/video/espn-fc-tv/ ... ll-rule-is

Now reasons why I’m upset with France winning:
1. Style of play. Deschamps is a coward like Mourinho. Both have teams stacked with quality attacking talent but still play not to lose first and foremost! If Deschamps made France play the way they have the potential to then they’d be crushing teams like Australia, Denmark and Peru 4-0 instead of sweating to 1-0 wins.

France’s best performances came against teams that came out to play and struggled against fellow bus Parkers. Also, it would’ve been interesting if France had gone behind more often because then they’d have to be forced to actually take the initiative instead of just playing Giroud as a defensive midfielder. Pavard’s one in a million goal bailed France against Argentina, big time!

2. Direct Rivals. Based on quality, the French are currently Germany’s number one rivals in Europe. Traditionally I consider only Italy, Netherlands and England to be bigger rivals than France for the Germans.

3. Griezmann. Ok today I’ll finally admit it. I hate him! He’s one of the players I was never fond of, super punchable face and cringing goal celebrations. I’ve seen him dive before (well it is La liga of course!) I’ve always found him to be unlikeable and now after yesterday, I despise him. He’s in the same category as Suarez 2010 for me.

4. Politics. Many ultra leftists have already jumped on the bandwagon and are already claiming that “diversity” won France the World Cup and therefore it is such a boon to (white) countries. Now I don’t have any problems with Black people or people immigrating to other states however this utopian left wing narrative of importing foreign, sometimes incompatible, cultures is something I don’t agree with!

5. This cuts Germany’s lead of Four Stars on a fellow European rival. Only way I would have supported France would be if their opponents were: England, Brazil, Spain, Portugal or Argentina.

I’m glad for Tolisso however. He’s a very good player and I hope he goes on to become a beast of a midfielder at Bayern.


Cause right wingers would never do the same of course - cause they already started beforehand

Put it whichever way you want: that hand is moving... It’s as unintentional as me looking at Megan Fox...

If I was to go back in time a century or so and show the Frenchmen of yore a picture of the 2018 “France” team I’d never come back to the present because I would be guillotined!

A century ago there wasn't a World Cup, but there was a World War instead. Below is an image of the French Army in World War I, circa 1918:

WW2 foreign soldiers were also used.
France employed Algerians ...
While Germany had middle eastern soldiers fighting for her, not to mention the eastern europeans ...
