Someone had to do it⚽️ Brazil is looking great, birthplace of my son in law. Portugal is beating pants off Switzerland. Could be an all Portuguese speaking final.

France will be hard to beat. Mbappe is incredible. So happy to see Spain crying.

Since I have no expectations of forgiveness, I don't do it in the first place. That loop hole needs to be closed to everyone.

The US never had a chance with that half-baked defense but the pinkie-toe goal by Haji Wright was one for the ages. doof.gif dizzy.gif breakdance.gif

Being my second home, I am obliged to support Argentina. I will root for them but Holland aka La 'Naranja Mecánica' will be a challenge on Friday. If you want to have some fun, go see a match with a group of argentinos.

Unbelievable! Brazil blowers a lead to Croatia then scores in the last seconds of the first overtime and dance, Croatia then ties at end of second then wins in a shootout🥺 Now Argentinas turn blows 2 point lead to Netherland so onto extra periods, another shootout 🫣 deja vu all over again. Whew🥳🇦🇷

They way Argentina played those 5-10min after the first Dutch goal was atrocious. What were they thinking? (Argentina soccer supporter here. winksmile.gif )

I watched the match at an Argentine bakery on Capitol Hill and the place was nuts. The game came down to the last few seconds and it could have gone either way. Dale, Argentina!🇦🇷

For me, that was almost the perfect set of results: I wanted Brazil, Argentina, Morocco and France to win. 3/4 isn't bad at all. While France must be the favorite, after all of the upsets that have already happened, I have no clue who will win the cup.
