Let me tell you why ......

Quote:
The year was 2002. Summer heat of February was pummeling the tar laden roads into submission. As my driver, was taking me from EZE to my service apartment, in Buenos Aires; I saw a young boy string the national jersey of the La Albiceleste. across two balconies in this lazy Saturday afternoon....

The city and the country was in economic shambles..... there was weekly tamasha with the politics of the Presidents and Ministers quitting or being ousted in succession...

I had an epiphany; the only miracle, to bootstrap a country in a downward spiral, out of the mess was to win the World Cup !

In the land of Mercedes Sosa, and Tango, most portenos agreed! Yes !!! World Cup would jolt us out of this depression....

I disagree, if you look at the Stats, Belgium was in the game for the whole of 90 minutes.

Possession & the Number of passes - are better than France. It was very similar to the Madrid vs Barca game where Madrid play counter attack football and Barca playing the possession game.

France too was good, especially the chances which Giroud had when Mbappe gave a 360 degree back pass...and also they missed a golden chance to make it 2-0 in the dying minutes.

Alas, the set piece was the difference and all that matters is how many time the ball crosses into the NET...

France are now the favorites to win the trophy...

I hope Croatia can win tonight and then they have a chance to replay the 1998 WC semi-final and take revenge against the French.

PS: I have always been a France supporter (big Zidane and Henry fan), but would love to see Croatia win as well!

The Nadal DelPotro match was way more entertaining than this one.. Hope the extra time spices up things.
England frontline is missing in action.. 1-1 at FT.

But But, there is a simpler reason for today's outcome. Yesterday Trump travelled to Brussels and we knew what happened to Belgium. Tommorow Trump is traveling to England, and...!!
