    Copa America is awful close to this. These KO matches are lit as fuk.

    I think the addition of fans as well have made Euros far better.

    I think the Copa probably should of been held in the US.

    Copa América not having fans doesn't help, but that would have been the case regardless of the host country.

    But yes, today's matches (Spain vs. Croatia and France vs. Switzerland) are on par with any of the great, epic matches we've seen at the World Cup. Copa América this year has not really produced anything similar at least so far.

    VAR is a farce.

    Can’t wait to see it. I’m hearing it’s a blatant dive . Although, British played don’t dive …

    England in the UEFA Euro final and I'm glad. I hope England defeats Italy.

    Wow ... what a disgrace that VAR didn't overturn that PK. Amateur hour in the Euros.

    "Curse" or whatever, if anyone has such a problem, I think it's a finalist in another tournament - in another continent.... and it's a team that like Italy has plenty of Italian last names.....

    It was a bad call, but the experience of watching this as a Brazilian who was on the English side (due to the school I went to in Brazil), watching all the neutrals go crazy all game over Kane's "dives" was hilarious.

    As for the penalty, it's somewhat understandable that they did not call it a "clear and obvious error" considering how strict they have been about that all Euro. And if they don't call it a "clear and obvious error" they can't ask the ref to review.

    Hopefully, I’m wrong but Neymar looks like he is on a decline.
