Dude...really good picks...BUT...2 yrs ago if you had said the 4 semis were going to be European...and germany, Portugal, Italy....spain...were not there who the fcuk would you have picked!!!
I called France, Brazil, Sweden, Croatia so 50% it is. Brazil was the highest ranking team remaining and they have played decent football, thought it was a decent bet. On another day they could easily win that one. In the end I'm thrilled for Belgium, especially because I've got money on them . Also definitely not sad to see the back of Neymar.Franchise...on this occasion I really apologise, got threads confused..it was Canucksforever or something like that...who basically said we should give it to Brazil now....again, I apologise!!...Canuck why would you fancy a team who have stuggled in front of goal...and always looked a bit shady in defence...particularly against a side who are very physical. I am not a Fellaini fan but he sure did the job against Japan and Brazil.
Maybe they could have used Ibra after all! Berg wasted so many opportunities this World Cup and they had no depth in the striker department. Arguably Toivenen was even worse than Berg imo.Sweden on the other hand were a massive disappointment. Could have played all day and they were never getting anything out of that game. Credit to Pickford for making a pair of clutch saves, but England deserved that by far and away. I guess it was a good thing that Sweden essentially never trailed in this tournament until today, because clearly they can't play from behind.
