Well, despite the popular opinion here, we still have a legitimate contender for becoming first new WC champion in a while. And that is a good thing.

Well yeah, Croatia played yesterday and Uruguay the day before, so nothing about that has changed.

Unfortunate (for Japan) goal in the end, but I'm happy with the match. I wanted the winner to be a team not from Europe or the Americas, but now that this will not happen, I will cheer for Uruguay. Not that I think they can beat France, but this World Cup has been so weird that anything could happen.

 It is commonly said that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I wonder if this match makes Belgium stronger , A real title contender

 

Japan played great. just great but that was stupid to attack in last minute with so many players against such dangerous team. you have to learn to park the bus sometimes.

You all make fun of Neymar, but there is a real reason for him to fall and scream all the time... it’s the result of a trauma from the past.... 

 

He.... stepped on LEGOs....

:lol:

Purely out of curiousity: what is the definition of 'migrant' for these statistics? A player being born outside the country they are playing for? Or a player who was born in the country they are playing for, but whose parents or grandparents or greatgrandparents weren't?

Must be the second proposition.

In the case of the French team, most of the players are French-born. Only Mandanda and Umtiti were born abroad.

Not even...  to reach 78% (18/23), you have to count the likes of Griezmann and Hernadez and also Lémar and Varane (whose famillies were allready french citizns living in a french territory at a time when most of the countries in this world cup didn't even exist, but still count as "migrants", presumably becaure they are not white...)

 

Funny how teams made up of virtualy 100% foreigner-born players like Tnisia or Morocco somehow don't count either...

 

Nevermind, really.
