Will this be the game where Pogba decides to start playing? They'll need him.

Decides to start playing? He was involved in almost all the goals (except 1 or 2) France scored. Won more duels than anyone in Round of 16 and Quarter finals, He is easily one of France best player.

Only thing he is lacking is goals or assists column but that's not his role even though he played hand in almost all their goals

I don't think France has shown everything it can do. They didn't go full throttle yet which is scary. I think their coach is approaching this like Jackie in 98 to a degree. I'm giving deshamps the benefit of the doubt cause if he isnt doing that he is limiting this amazing squad and is actually an idiot.

Since 1990, whoever defeated Brazil went through to the Final. However, 3 out of 4 teams ended up as runner up. Only Germany successfully defeated Brazil and won the final 4 years ago.

Belgium to the final?

Since both team have good attacking force, This easily will bevome battle between Curtuois and Lloris. I was criticizing Lloris before Uruguay games but then he stepped up and made important saves while Muslera fucked up big time. Same goes for Curtois who probably had his best WC match last night, after dissasterclass againts Japan I never thought he will bounced back like last night.

Time to beat the baguettes.

Same formation, but this time sadly Carrasco on the left and Chadli on the right.

This is bit of dilemma for me. 2 of my favorite teams with 2 of my favorite players playing against each other. I just want the winner of this game to win the finals.

Will be rooting for Pogba but won't mind Belgium winning it.

I hope Belgium, at it's more or less my second home country, but i think France is just too steady. Not brilliant, but steady.

Portugal gave the recipe to win against France last Euro, you just need to get a big black dude up front, doesn´t matter if he´s good or not.
I believe you´ve got that covered so you´ll be fine.

I have had this weird question in my mind for some time and I feel like I have to ask it.

Do people speak French, Dutch or English as the common language in the Belgian national team?

A country without a single common language feels odd to me. Perhaps because I'm not used to that case. I remember I once saw a live performance by Stromae in the halftime of a Belgian NT match in which it seemed like just half of the Belgian supporters understood it or actually gave a shit about it. Language is an important aspect of culture. That's why I find it confusing to be able to have a country without such a common and united trait. I guess I have to live in Belgium, Switzerland etc. to fully understand it.

Good luck with today's match. I will support the Belgians.

I remember the good ol' days of the internet with a bunch of "Belgium does not exist" pre-memes.
