  1. Way things look now I would assume that we will only have two teams in Tokyo: Water Polo (M) and Handball (M). Qualification in Football (M) is not impossible, but will be very tough. I don't think that we will be among best four teams at next year's U21 Euro. The men's Basketball Team still has a chance only in case they get a wild card for the OQT. Everywhere else chances are very slim to nonexistent.

    Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    I think we were a bit unlucky yesterday. The first French goal resulted from an unjustified free kick (plus maybe it could have been ruled offside), the penalty call is understandable, but it isn't a blatant one, more like a 50/50 thing. Would have liked to see how the game went when the score would have been even for a longer time. In 2nd half Croatia needed to increase the risk, which obviously suits the French attack very much. You cannot give them that much space, certainly not with that mismatch on our left defense side. Still France is the better team and probably would have found a way to win the game anway. Congratulations to them. Yes, it would have been great to become world champions and we probably won't get a chance as good as this one again in the near future, but there have only been 8 different nations winning the World Cup, almost all of them big nations. There has never been a real underdog winning it. Croatia doesn't have to win it, just not our claim.

    Perisic is out of form and Rebic has many strengths, but unfortunately passing and crossing are not among them. We are somewhat limited in attack and it shows.

    Russia is somewhat underrated, they defend very well. I would have crossed my fingers for them against any other opposition in this tournament. But we shouldn't have wasted that lead in extra time (in large part thanks to our goofy left-back) and rely on penalties again. Somewhat tempers my joy that we once again couldn't defeat our opponent from open play. Therefore I think we still have to proof something, but I doubt that we will beat England now.

    Čilić Deserved loss. I was expecting him to go far in this tournament, but he was very bad today.

    Spanish playing style totally lacks directness, that is why I didn't consider them favorites to win the World Cup. Its tiki-taka all the time and hardly ever chances for a goal. And Russia can't produce a good counter-attacking game either.

    Uruguay didn't do very much in 2nd half, were mainly parking the bus and trying to counter-attack (which didn't work really well). Not that impressed by them today.

    Good game. A well playing France side is just too much for this Argentina team I think. They sacrificed some offensive power with Matuidi on the wing, still they had amazing quality up front. Now the three best teams from 2014 are out of the tournament. I don't expect tonight's game to be nearly as good. Both teams lack creativity and they have a different playing style. Smells like extra time there.

    Pity. I would have liked Senegal to advance. I can't see Japan being a threat to Belgium or England.

    Hopefully Colombia will win this group. Otherwise England and Belgium probably will both try their best to lose tonight's game (2nd placed team in Group G would face Sweden or Switzerland in quarterfinals).

    Not sure who deserved it here. I found Sweden to be rather bad in the first two games. Mexico apparently totally collapsed today, but I still think they were the best team in this group. Germany also had two bad games and a mediocre one against Sweden, where they at least dominated even with only 10 players and created some chances. I like to see big surprises in sports, but I still would have wanted Germany to advance rather than Sweden.

    I also had the impression that France hasn't shown yet what they are really capable of. I think they will be able to raise their level during this tournament. I'm not so sure if Germany, Brazil, Argentina and Spain also will. They all seem to have actual problems to perform to their potential at the moment.
