    Its true though, at the end of the day, its still the same old England we all knew, resorting to random longballs once things get tight.

    No, they can't. Germany, Brasil, Spain will get their shit together and start performing. England just got lucky with the draw this time. In order for them to compete they need better players, especially better midfielders.

    No, he said that. From the interviews I've watched your players seemed pretty pissed with the lack of respect they got from England before the game.

    And Vrsaljko is right after all. England tried to keep ball on the ground in first half but as soon as you started to press them high in second they've panicked in defense and started to use long balls.

    Well, this man said it:


    2 minutes and 48 seconds it starts...
    Andres DON Iniesta is the only player in football's history to be Man of the Match in a Champions League final, EURO final and World Cup final.

    “I would love to have played at this club. I am envious of how well Guardiola's men can play. They are like a group of kids who play football in the street without rules. That is the best football, the most authentic, unfettered by tactics or schemes. Guardiola’s philosophy is helping to change the mindset of many tacticians and that is priceless.” Marco Van Basten

    I don't like the final being played literally 3 days after Croatia's match while France gets an extra days rest.

    Either give both teams a week to recover before the final or play the two semi-final matches on the same day.

    Get to a World Cup first before you criticise teams who made it, let alone to the semi-finals.

    Watching all Croatia's games this WC... I think they play close to Barcaesque tiki-taka football from Guardiola era (despite some goals from crosses, corners, pens e.t.c). Do you think so ? Look how many passes on the ground and attempts to score from open play with the ball to the ground...!
