    1. πŸ‘ I think #10 has said those exact words 10-times or more? πŸ˜‰ Eh, the 3-Lions have a lot of which to be proud. With Croatia having now played their 3rd game straight of Extra Time you have to wonder what’s left in their tanks and injuries/near-injuries(?).

      France will be fresher and with LESS fatigued injuries. Plus France, I believe has more talent and depth than Croatia. France wins WC Sunday… possibly by two or three goals. I simply DO NOT see Croatia going into a 4th Extra Time. Also, I’m still not so convinced about properly incorporating VAR. If anything, the replays have made several/many referees look incompetent.

      1. In Croatia’s defense they are the only team to have won all of their matches. Though I accept that France will be very strong favourite.

        I should add my commiserations to Ark on the departure of the three lions.

        So why exactly does England have the Lion as it representative animal?

        1. Peter, Croatia’s fitness (physically) cannot be questioned. I am blown-away by it their last 3 games. But the mental AND physical fatigued, near-injuries, or possible upcoming injuries due to the very harsh pace… I don’t know. I think the tank is near empty. But if all of the Croatia roster are on steroids or some illegal performance drugs, then they might beat France. πŸ˜„

          I’ll take a stab at this answer and it is certainly an uneducated guess. Lions? Is it for Imperialism and 19th – 20th century world domination/empire started by the Royal Navy and the Monarch’s global colonies? That’s my shot-in-tha-dark. 🀭
