    I really hope we will. There are some debts to pay off for losing to them in semis at WC 1998. :)

    You got lucky against Denmark. We could - and should - have won that game, just sayin’ But now I hope you go all the way and beat the French!

    No, we were better in the second half against Denmark, and all the way through the ET. Absolutely deserved win there, our guys stuck with their guns, your guys were lousy in execution even when close to our goal (got tired in ET, perhaps? ;)), that's the way it goes :)

    Also, saving penalties is not pure luck. Saving 3 out of 5 is proper know-how ;) Schmeichel was great, but Suba was better in the end - and he continues to prove that throughout the whole WC.

    Also let's see what the match stats say:

    Who has more goal attempts and greater attempt accuracy? ;)

    Ok, ok, maybe I was looking at it through rose colored glasses, because we were so shit in the first 3 games, and I expected Croatia to simply play us out of the field - which objectively didn’t happen, since it went all the way to penalty. I maintain we could have won that shoot out, had it not been for the stupid decision of letting Nikolaj Jørgensen be one of the kickers, and Eriksen letting his own reputation down so spectacularly.

    But like I said, things being what they are, I will be cheering for Croatia now. Please, please, please beat France!!!

    Yes, it didn't happen because you guys didn't let us play our game. We don't like long lobs and headbutts all the fucking time. We like to play actual football, y'know, where there's actual game creation happening instead of jumping the game. ;)

    I hope we will, too. But you never know. The situation doesn't look good - they've had one day of rest more than us, and have played one game less than us (3 extra times = 90 minutes)... But everyone (especially cynical were the British media) said we were too tired and won't do anything in the half-finals game against England, and look at what happened...

    Those boys be insane.

    Good luck with your team, Mario :D (30 minutes to go)
    I just admire the goalkeeper of both team.

    P.S. Congrats on a successful WC2018! btw. whats the point of VAR when the referee doesn't apply the rules? It had to be a deliberate handball to justify a penalty and this clearly wasn't.

    Agreed on that... But it is what it is, I guess.

    The whole country here is celebrating as if it were gold.
     
  13. Mario! Two things I didn't know about you:
    1. We both work(ed) with Output (among other places) at one point or another. Still surprised at what small indistry it is;
    2. You're Croation - the place of my not-so-distant ancestors!
    That was a fun read, man. Thanks for sharing!
