    Jeez, Belgium is boring without DeBruyne and Eden Hazard. No creativity and won't get the ball to Lukaku or Mertens, only Thorgen Hazard far out on the wing, who does nothing with it. Mertens is frustrated as hell (though he's always been a bit of a brat, he's by far their most likely to create a goal).

    EDIT: Calm precise technical finish by Mertens from a loose ball in the box.

    Today Croatia was under the term of bad...
    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 don?t think that was the reason. Those are our 2 best players but the team has no interest in the NL (Meuner even literally said it at the presser). I think most teams still see these games as a friendly.

    The team also suffered from the horrible distribution from Mignolet. No idea why he played and is still the second goalkeeper instead of Casteels since the latter is way better.

    Portugal has a great team. I?d put them in my top 3 too.

    They looked very good, but it was hard to tell how much of it was their play and how much of it was Croatia looking disinterested.

    This dutch team is so painfully mediocre. Bunch of workhorse with zero creativity, bad technique and bad IQ. Apart from DeJong, these players are tier 2 at best. And we want two of them..

    Italy dominated in the first half, but Holland played better in the second. The score was ok, Italy had the better chances. FDJ was ok but not great. Not even VVD was playing as usual. Memphis looks ok.

    Portugal top3 favorites (in UEFA) for the next tournaments, real chances of Ronaldo retiring with another international major trophy.

    Messi better rest up for Copa America 2021, his second to last shot at international glory (last one being WC 2022).
