    Referee kinda losing control of this match and im kinda loving it.

  3. jtm371 says:

    Come on you Croats one half left to get that ticket to the next round. Rafa is a hatchet man plan and simple. He had no intention of playing the ball his intention was to play Modric’s head dirty play.

    • Flyvanescence says:

      Modric hardly recognizable with that haircut. Seems to be a bit of Samson-itis too, as hes been a shadow of himself.

  4. jtm371 says:

    Bad no call el tri should have had a penalty. clear handball on Srna.

  5. Flyvanescence says:

    Mexico robbed but my bias is showing. I couldnt be happier.

  6. Bo says:

    Mexico took acting classes it looks like.

  7. Flyvanescence says:

    AAAAND Marquez scores . . .

    • jtm371 says:

      That Sucks hatchet man buries the dagger. :( Corluka never jumped.

      • Flyvanescence says:

        The Eastern Europeans nations will one day catch up. The talent is there. Each tournament i think it will be the one. Bosnia got robbed, Croatia kinda did too but majorly disappointed also.

  8. Bo says:

    And that’s how a nation who didn’t deserve to qualify sadly gets into the R16. Netherlands, have fun with them.
