Before this game everybody was expecting a dreary game as neither team had sat world alight. Last thing you expected was a goal fest.

the next game will be a bore draw lol

Yessssss!

Good riddance Argentina , shame the cameras didn’t show fat face crying .

That Mbappe looks a great player for his age , I nearly freaked out when it went 4-3!

So far its been a great WC, and Wimbledon starts tomorrow so it’s a festival of sport.

So you can give it but not take it.

But moving on, it was a cracking game today. So I agree with you there.

I am enjoying this World Cup, don't really care who wins. 

mine was in jest hence the 'lol'....didn't see one from you, just a stench of hypocrisy & sour grapes.............but I can't be bothered with semantics, too much good football on show today to spoil my mood, so water under the bridge Julian...........and another mouth watering game in prospect tonight!

Indeed happy to move on, it has been a good World Cup and totally open, 

Today France put in the best performance so far, but even then dodgy at the back.

Yes brilliant for sports fans , there’s something special about the WC in the summer , especially with the hot weather it adds to the atmosphere .

And with Wimbledon starting I’m going to be a couch potato for the next week !

I must admit, I'm a bit of a closet tennis fan......working next week but recorder set up so I can watch when home..............back to the footy, I can;t stress how much I enjoyed this afternoon's game, it had just about everything and really brought an already entertaining world cup to the next level!........I really hope, come tuesday, that win, lose or draw, England play a high pressing game as it will ensure a good game of footy

Another thing about this world cup is teams are prepared to use the long ball to unlock a defense when the opportunity is there. I've never been a fan of the pass for passing sake without zero creativity. Hopeful some coaches will be taking lessons from this world cup.

Although I hate to say it Ronaldo is far better player at this level than Messi. Where Messi will spend a lot of time walking around doing nothing with only the odd burst of energy old Ronnie movements are positive and he asks for the ball he wants to be involved.

I would feel bad for Wales but then I'll just watch the video of the team going mental when we lost to Iceland...yet they still lost to us :D

I think Ronnie needs free kick lessons from Beckham. Only scored once in 46 tries now I think.

But anyway, Argentina and Portugal getting knocked out in the same day would be wonderful.

That Uruguay defense is like a brick wall.

Not the fireworks of the earlier game but still pretty good and a great goal .
