England win on penalties -- of course, three of the PK goals were by Spurs players.
France is fun as hell. Pogba, Kante, Mbappe, Griezmann, Varane, etc. Those guys are all some of the best young players in the world.So for our Fantasy NFL draft order, we randomly choose teams based on the FIFA top 12 or something. I got France. I wasn't much of a soccer fan prior to these games, but since I have been locked in and finding myself interested. If France didn't have some young exciting players, I'm not sure I'd care...even if my NFL fantasy pick counted on it.
Hell, how many teams would Benzema and Lacazaette start for, or at least be a key sub for?France is fun as hell. Pogba, Kante, Mbappe, Griezmann, Varane, etc. Those guys are all some of the best young players in the world.
Ian Darke had an incredible call for Donovan's goal against Algeria, but his call for Wambach's goal against Brazil was just ridiculously good.BTW, how the fuck does Fox Sports take Skip Bayless and Colin Cowherd from ESPN, but not get Ian Darke for the World Cup?
That's like buying the rights to Phantom Menace and Last Jedi, but not buying Empire Strikes Back
I'm pissed at the whole Benzama situation. He would have been incredible out there instead of Giroud but after all the BS in 2014 I don't think he's ever going to play for France again. As much as I like Giroud, the guy is built to come off the bench and score a late header. His finishing outside of 10 feet with his feet is awful. I'd much rather have Fekir out there. I have no idea how a starting striker can have 0 goals in the world cup...Hell, how many teams would Benzema and Lacazaette start for, or at least be a key sub for?
Uruguay had no shot without Cavani. I have a weird feeling Belgium wins here.
