Wow, crazy. We watched the end of the game. They had no connection whatsoever. I've never seen them not be able to pull something out of the hat. And then when Korea scored the second time.... My dad immediately hit the x button... To bad, but they are too proud, and it is good for them to be brought down a little.

Germany's out!
Ladies and gentlemen, history is made before our eyes...
Our country made great victory. I'm glad we finally made 1 win. But I give big respect to the Germany as well. It was a fantastic game, setting aside winning or losing. :thumbs:

The slaughter of the favourites continues. After Germany, Spain and Argentina today it was Brazil's turn. That was a great match!

Well, I’m going to sound like a bandwagoner now, but I’m for Belgium, mainly because I watch a lot of Premier League, and a bunch of them play for Man U, Man City, Chelsea and Tottenham. Big Hazzard and deBruyne fan. Go Flems!

I am also a deBruyne fan, I was glad that Brazil lost, not that I had anything against them. But I am going to the underdogs. I wanted Uruguay to win but France is too strong. I think France might win the whole thing. I am guessing that Croatia and France will be in the final, that would be cool. I've always been a fan of Rakitic from watching Barcelona. But I definitely will cheer for Belgium as of now.

It was a crime that Portugal injured Cavani so he couldn’t play today. The ugly side of football.

Too bad that England didn't get to final. I like the hit song "Football is coming home", I have played it a lot on spotify lately. Well, let's hope they win bronze medal.

And about final, France should lose! 8-)

Yeah, that was very surprising, but at least it was fair, no penalty shots or anything.

I am definitely cheering for Croatia. But it does seem the odds are against them.

Third place match:
Belgium 2-0 England
The best ever World Cup result for Belgium. The best result since 1990 for England.
