    Croatia deserved It and well done.
    On a good day I can see France from my drum so I'm rooting for them In the final.

    Too bad for England, but Croatia was the stronger team. So who is favored to win it all, France or Croatia?

    Yeah, Croatia pressed hard, and set themselves up for lots of opportunities. England held their own, and did better than expected in the tourney. Their fans should be proud.

    I have to think that France has too much speed for Croatia. Should be a good one, though. The 3rd Place game ought to be good as well.

    I think France is favored : more experience of world cup , a good team with a lot of good players (not a team for one king of the ball like Nemar). And be the world champion exactly 20 years after the first time in 1998 will be funny.

    France is fav. Croatia has several good players, but France is a perfectly set up Swiss watch machinery.

    France gets my vote too, the game with Belgium was so exciting. Great world cup, with lots of end to end play, so much better than defensive lockouts

    I like Olivier Giroud from his Arsenal days, even though he now plays for Chelsea :( The rest of the French team is talented too. I think Croatia will have to find some magic in order to beat France.

    Belgium's counter is slicing England's defense. The save against Eric Dier's chip certainly changed the momentum and Hazard's goal seems to have sealed the deal.

    France deserved winners.
    kept their shape, men behind the ball and attacked with speed.
    Unlucky Croatia but they were out managed on the day.
    Good game.!!!

    Agreed. Good game. It looked like three straight ET games finally caught up to Croatia. And, maybe their age. France is young, and loaded. Look out!

    France deserved the win, but still think that penalty shouldnt have been given. Also the freekick from the first goal... total dive from Griezmann. But yeah, again France deserved it.
