  morfishine: Congratulations for those who astutely picked France and/or Croatia to make the final! Well Done!
Premium Chessgames Member
  TheAlchemist: Given that a French win will push me down to sixth, it's obvious who I should be rooting for.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: I'll get my congratulations in early. Congratulations <juan31>!
Jul-13-18  NakoSonorense: What the hell, <td>! I thought we were amigos.
Jul-13-18  NakoSonorense: <morfishine> <Congratulations for those who astutely picked France and/or Croatia to make the final! Well Done!>

I'm one of those, so thanks. To be frank, once the brackets were set, all the picks seemed fairly obvious to me, given how they had played in the Group Stage.

The only result that threw me off was Spain v Russia. I was unimpressed by Spain and I was confident that Croatia would run over them in the quarterfinals, but I thought they had enough left in the tank to beat the Russians.

I also picked Mexico over Brazil, but that was more wishful thinking than anything else.

  technical draw: <Nakosonorense> <What the hell, <td>! I thought we were amigos.>

When it comes to futbol there are no!

However, I predict a 2-2 tie in regulation time. Place your bets!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: 3rd place match hasn't started yet, but I'm going to make a prediction that Belgium wins that one.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Heading into the semi-finals, England had won 17 straight matches while wearing the red jerseys.

They decided to wear the home whites in the SF, and lost to Croatia.

Now for the 3rd place match they have decided to wear red again.

Would be nice if the order was flipped...

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: So, England takes 4th place...
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <So, England takes 4th place...>

By the end of the year you won't remember who took 4th place. Or for that matter which two teams played.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: And France is on the board first. 1-0
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Tied... 1-1
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: 2-1 Half! France leads.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Diademas: Great first half. Go Croatia!
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: France world champions, why wait?
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Woo... 3-1 France. When do you pull the goalie?
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: 4-1, time to pull the goalie...
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: 4-2, pull the goalie again...
Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: Congratulations to the Frenchies!

A bit of bad luck for Croatia - obviously the hand ball in the box was accidental. It bounced off the French guy first, I think, and no way the defender could avoid having it hit his arm.

However, it must be called a penalty, otherwise we would have neverending handballs in the box where the defenders claim "accident".

The bad luck didn't reverse a fair result. France were the best team in the tournament and likely would have won without the penalty.

Griezmann is a poor sport, too. He made the "Loser" symbol with his hand when he danced in the face of the Croatian supporters after the penalty. Shame on him.

  thegoodanarchist: <WannaBe: 4-2, pull the goalie again...>

Yes, pull the goalie. Just don't pull my finger! :)

  Diademas: France choosees to end the game with 11 players. Out goes Giroud.

  Count Wedgemore: Big congratulations to <Nako> for an impressive performance, showing that his shared 1st in the WC2010 contest was no accident. Thanks to <WannaBe> for hosting this fun and entertaining contest. Next time I will employ <Penguincw>'s bizarre strategy in <lostemperor>'s prediction contest, and turn my picks upside down. Then I should have good chances of winning :)
Jul-15-18  NakoSonorense: Thanks, everyone. And thanks to Wannabe for hosting the contest! It was fun.

Vive la France, I guess. Agh.
