Sm00teh, you’ve teminded me about Croatia’s antics in the 06 group game and now I’m wanting France to win.
Would be fully on board with this if not for Mbappe. **** Mbappe.Have now firmly settled on France. Sealed by the Sm00teh influence together with the fact that if they win it then we can say they were most troubled through the tourney by Australia, who they were lucky to get past, and as a result we are actually a top ten side.
Alternatively, coming from behind three games in a row and ending up in extra time over and over again could mean they're wrecked. Depends on whether all of the blokes limping off were cramping or some were more serious, I suppose.Expect France to win, but wouldn't be at all surprised if Croatia get up. It takes iron will to come from behind 3 games in a row, even if the final represents a significant step up in quality.
What’s wrong with Mbappe?!Would be fully on board with this if not for Mbappe. **** Mbappe.

Despite its obvious pitfalls I think 2002 is my favourite world Cup of my lifetime. I put that down to me being a japanophile and 2002 being pretty much the peak of my football fandom. Some rose tinted lenses at play as well no doubt.
As an adult 2014 a clear winner for me. There was just a certain atmosphere about that tournament that I think this one lacked. Brazil being an exotic destination steeped in football history probably being the reason for this.
1982 is probably the one tournament I wish I'd been alive to see. Love watching that Brazil team's goal compilation from that tournament from time to time... almost every single one of them outrageously good.I'll still take a bit of persuading that 1982 wasn't the best tournament since I've been watching the game. It's certainly the one I remember best.
