    Nice to see the classic cockerels on the French warm ups. Well done Nike.

  2. El Payaso says:

    This World Cup has some of the most incompetent referees. The challenge from Pogba and the stamp by Matuidi should have gotten straight red cards.

  3. Huw Roma says:

    Sad seeing the once high goal average dwindling with every game. Somehow it was predictable in the knockout stage, with teams playing overly defensive and scared to lose.

  4. Brad says:

    I’m starting to think Nigeria is going to win this late.
