You know when I said that only 3 things matter: Eastern Europe, China and Israel...I didn't include England in Eeastern Europe.

Oh boy, I now have FOUR years to laugh at Russia and England ))), so much time to come up with good jokes, another one:

Eastern Europe just voted for Brexit lol...

Anyway, I have a feeling France are gonna win the final but it's too late. Croatia are already the real winners, the moral winners.

No country in the history of the world cup with such abysmall population has made what they did today. France can sign the whole Africa if they want (since they're it) but they're still no Croatia.

Congrats, Croatia!

The correlation between domestic violence and football has been proven numerous times

If this is true, its pretty sad - they did seem like thugs for the last few minutes on the field. Seems like they are still stuck in the medieval era, when this behavior might have been the norm.

WTF, England were one of the few teams which played with any kind of decency, as did Sweden, Japan and Croatia. Do you really have any idea what you're talking about?!

Well, if that statistic can even be proven (emotive posters with blood forming the George cross are not evidence), it needs to include all the other teams involved too.

Croatia, especially Lovren, were a little heavy until the end of the first half, when their manager must have reigned them in. And they benefitted in the long run!

Who ever put a huge bet on Croatia, before the start of the world cup, is now a very rich person.

No what I meant is that the last few mins of the game they behaved like thugs (like teams do when they are losing).

I do agree with you on the comment that they were one of the cleanest teams in general this tournament.

Now when it comes to fans - all bets are off - actually Russia had very low expectations this WC, so their fans are under control.
