I'd really like to see a France v England final. That may sort about a 1000 years of history, at least for this year ;)

9 ( +10 / -1 )

I predict a continental European final :)

Go Go Go Fraaance !

Mbappe was a huge disappointment with his falling and unsporting behaviour...

Hard to see anyone stopping France. I’ve been waiting to use the word ‘surrender’ for weeks but it’s looking unlikely. They proved their mettle as well as their ability here.

As stated above, Mbappe is starting to annoy more than entertain. A pity.

5 ( +8 / -3 )

Yikes, a France vs England final perhaps? Shame, I would've loved to see a Belgium vs Croatia final.

Its coming home!

Yes - to my knowledge they haven't faced off in the final of a major comp since 1815... :)

I got down-voted like crazy for complaining about the French players rolling around on the ground, grabbing "injured" body parts, after the Uruguay match. Maybe more people will have sympathy for my perspective this time!

I thought Belgium were a little unlucky.  But France still worthy winners.

Scorer has a great name.

Bring on Les Rosbif.

Time to get over the loss of your favourites and again I tell you that some Uruguayan players played dirty. Players like Suarez, one of the most gifted on the globe, are when things don't work out unpredictable so either he performs a 86 kg full speed body check of he bites an opponents ear :)

I never vote so dun worry.

Mbappe was doing with his teammates in extra time what all teams do to let the clock tick faster. As a teenager he does immature things and got a yellow card for that.

What I saw were some great football tricks before the Belgian goal :)
