After last nights result I have canceled my trip to Dignitas.

Should you change your mind I'm sure we could pass the hat around here for your fare.

Probably no point? There are probably plane loads from Moscow going there and the clinic will be at full capacity. ;)

Mertens, Chadli, Vertongen, dembéle, Vermaelen and Alderweireld all played in their younger years in the Dutch competition.
So the Dutch have some special feelings for Belgium by lack of a Dutch team.
But I was just looking at the football quality itself not at nationalities...  for me the Belgium team is better team and plays an attractive type of football.
Even France decided to play defensive against them... and it worked out alas...

So France won and i think they were better than the Croatian.
Alas again with a lot of luck and some referee mistakes at the first two goals.
France played very defensive again and showed only a few minutes at 4-1 how they could have played if there was nothing at stake.
Too bad we have not seen a bit more of that.
Croatia played with their heart.

The way I count it, the result was 3:3. Croatia scored three goals, France scored three goals ;)

... There is also a downside for the English born, particularly younger players who find it difficult to break into first team football because of all the competition from foreign players and this also has a negative effect on the national side....

Now, if I said what a liberal comedian said, I would be labeled a racist:

Trevor is a very funny man. I employed a woman a few years ago who was at school with him. She said he was always the class comedian and very popular with the ladies.

South African style standup can be extraordinarily blunt and takes a big stick to differences between races. Not all of it would travel well. Anyway I am totally on Trevor’s side with this one.
