My boy Dejan Lovren keeping Argentina quiet.

Croatia have a stacked midfield, could take them pretty far in this tournament.

We’re out of town and I can’t find a way to watch the Argentina v Croatia game and it’s driving me bonkers.

Oh boy, what a weekend.

As much as I dislike Portugal, I think they will reach semifinals.

Portugal/Iran was mental. Referee totally lost control. What was going on with Iran coach? He was seen throwing his jacket and storming down the tunnel suggesting he'd been ejected, then he came back, then later got another "final warning". That Iran "handball" was never a penalty, but it was a great penalty. VAR has been great so far, but it was used quite terribly in the Portugal/Iran game, though I think that was mostly down the referee being indecisive.

Really hoping Japan scrape through, just so the knockouts stages aren't Europe vs America. They'll go out immediately, but still, continents!

Fucking VAR haha, can make this sport more fair but it's a fucking chaos because only the referee decides when to make use of it, they should give teams limited chances to make use of it, like in Tennis.

Also, Argentina... nice to have them in the next round but they're not delivering as expected, don't think they will be this lucky against France.

2 guys go up for a header in the box. Attacker heads it down, off the defender's arm = penalty. Defender heads it down, off his own arm =/= penalty. huh?

Those fuckers deserved it. I can't believe how much time Younggwon had to shoot during that first goal. Three meters of free space in every direction around him.

As an Englishman, Germany going out is wonderful. Just a shame it wasn't us who put them out. Ozil's perennial face of disappointment never gets old, and we get to see it a lot, because he plays for Arsenal. ' Sweeper keepers' are dumb. The ego on Neuer to think he can dribble past a professional outfield player. Idiot. He was made to look foolish.

It doesn't matter who wins the final. VAR is the world champion. Without VAR, that first Korea goal is disallowed every time, and incorrectly. No chance an official ever spots that in real time. All hail the VAR overlords.

Neuer was too funny.

ARG qualified means we get to witness another outstandong performance by the one and only .............. MARADONA!
