I am rooting for neighbors here, those Dinamo trollers are annoying.

Edit:

Luka Modric deserves big result with national team, he was so underrated all his career and managed to pull trough. They pushed Kranjcar when they were younger, Modric had to play on loan in fucking Bosnian league. Now he’s in top 3 midfielders in the world while Kranjcar is fired from Glasgow Rangers.

Kranjčar had problems with injuries.And he just not a person who wanna success for all costs.He is a last classy boem in Croatian football.Just his way.Respect.

Modrić is best ever in Croatia but nobody would remember him just for that cause he is a thief (who stole 10.5M € from club where he was a football legend) and lying cunt.

And this is a great story for children...become WC player is not enough if u are moral scum.Be a human is always more important.Unless u are Juventus fan.

Croatia should realistically win. From what I saw against Denmark, their biggest struggle is the their midfield got physically dominated in the second half, but I don't think Russia can okay thr same way as Denmark. At the same time you never know when a team has home advantage.

They have offensive and ultra offensive options. First one is with Brozovic like CM and other one is this one with Kramaric like AM or SS.

Coach underestimated Russia and started ultra offensive, we will see what will happen.

Tbf to hit to the left side of goal he had to hit it at that spot to get it clear of defender and keeper any more to the right even a centimetre it would have been blocked. Unlucky that it came back out. Maybe he should have shot to the right instead though

Brozovic playing super withdrawn, practically a water boy for Rakitic who is invisible, and Modric. They shoulda just put Badelj on if they wanted a DM

Bluenine
07 Jul 18, 20:29
Its hopefully just a case of Croatia not using them right, but both Perisic and Brozovic have had a pretty shitty tournament. I hope they wake the fuck up when they come back to Inter, we are counting on both of them to deliver.

PS: Vrsaljko is the kind of player I would mind if Inter sign for free to give us depth. But 20m? You gotta be kidding me. Dumbo will easily bench his arse.

Russia is soooooo SHIT!! If they end up in the semis, it would be the worst team in the history of fucking world cups to reach the semi final. This is the most anti soccer, anti beautiful game, team I’ve seen.
They just sit there defending, don’t even think to pass the midfield. Shit of the shits. Two talented players out of 22 in their roster!
Common Croatia! Finish this miserable team!

TBF to him he just came on. But he just seems one of those talented players who hasn't improved at all and just likes playing and touching the ball a lot and just pass it backwards and admire himself for that accomplishment. He said he wants to leave and play consistently so will be interesting to see what happens to him in the future.

Side note, that Perisic sub was just sublime.

Like we see in many American sports like NFL, MLB and NBA? Or Olympians like Lance Armstrong, Marion Jones and Tyson Gay? I know the Russians have done this massively but I'm not too sure if they are that alone. Just take a look on the "Operation Puerto" with Spanish footballers and athletes.

Lovren is a retard, that's a long-established fact. But he's lucky Smolov is absolutely fucking useless. Dude has pissed me off so much every time I've watched Russia this cup. Marcus Berg too.

I was typing this in relation to his decision to do an Eder and dive instead of shoot when 1 on 1 with the keeper. And then he goes and stands perfectly still when he arguably could have done more to block Vida's header at the goal line.
