    Man if someone said before the tournament that we would play Switzerland and Morocco to get to the semis, you’d take that.

    Who cares. Every team now on is a threat.

    Makes sense CR as a sub, fresh legs. Second half he shows up anyway. Plus the possibility of PK.

    I dont get it. Ronaldo is so in their heads. I honestly dont really care about Messi. He is an amazing player but the whole Ronaldo/Messi thing is so overrated.

    You should see twitter. Wild memes from both camps. I hope it's kids doing that but I'm pretty sure they are all grown ass adults:D

    There are some truly stupid sub forums on this site, I will occasionally just browse to see what is there. People need attention or whatever I guess but oh the idiocy...

    Predictions for tomorrow?

    I feel Netherlands and Argentina will go to penalties. Van Dijk and co. will shut down Argentina's strong points, while Dutch seem a bit toothless up front. Everyone has Argentina beating them but I don't see it that clear cut, history is actually on Netherlands' side in this matchup.

    As for Brazil vs. Croatia, would love to see an upset but I just don't see it, Vini and Raphinha will tear that slow defense apart.

    I've got Netherlands, but it wouldn't surprise me if they lose because of the reason you mentioned.

    Croatia is being a pain right now, but they just don't look to have any goals in them. Their keeper looks up for it today, so it's going to be tough for Brazil to get one past him too. I'm sure they'll find one in the final 10 minutes or something.

    Livakovic MOTM so far, he's given Croatia a game where they only need 1 moment of brilliance, but they have nothing on attack and they seem content and destined for extra time

    Extra time... Croatia played for PKs. That was there goal.

    But I don't see Brazil not scoring in extra.

    yes, content for pks... Morocco will do the same, that is why Portugal need to attack early.

    My wife is Croatian, so usually I root them on, but this kind of playstyle can make it difficult lol. Like I can appreciate good goalkeeping and defending but take a chance once in a while haha

    I almost preferred getting Spain, this game against Morocco has frustration written all over it and I believe we are better than this version of Spain. I'm still confident against Morocco but it's gonna be like pulling teeth.

    Not a single shot on target. Wouldn't be surprised if they went to penalties and won too...

    People crap on us for winning Euro with only draws. Croatia is even worse LOL
