Now remember you can be as bias as you want as this is football after all. So my predictions are.

 

France vs. Belgium. 1-2

Croatia vs. England. 1-5 with a Kane hat trick (see what I mean by the bias)

The final, 4-2 to England with a goal near the end so we can say, they think it’s all over it is now.

 

Serioulsy though. Belgium to win. Not sure about Croatia vs. England, could go either way.

Germany to go all the way, thumping Brazil in the semi-final.

 

Did my time machine work?

I think it may be somewhat faulty :)

Personally I think Belgium just have the better players overall and also have more options of how they can play the game. Why do you think no one can stop France?

Because they are strong in defence. It seems they are always able to be just a little better than the opponent

France v Belgium

A narrow win for Belgium here, there's not much in it but the French have lacked a certain je ne sais quoi this time out. They're good defensively but Belgium are better going forward and Lukaku can be a terror. 

 

Croatia v England

Again, a narrow win for the victors. England in this case..  One from set piece (John Stones to head in) and something from Harry Kane before Modric shows why he's the best player on that particular pitch.  The exertions of two lots of matchges and extra time will leave Croatia tired as the match wears on if England can keep the ball and press well. But I'm biased so there we go...

 

 

Generally though, all four teams will rightly feel that they are able to progress to the final.

I’m biased as well but England (warning cliche ahead) seem to have a unity that they lacked for many years. I remember all the talk of the golden generation who were going to bring it home only to turn out to be a bit of a damp squib when it came to actually playing the game. That doesn’t mean I think we will win it, France and Belgium are better sides, but I do think there’s a realistic chance. Croatia, that’s a hard one to call.

 

I agree with Belgium vs. France just because I think Belgium have more options in how they approach the game. France can try and close down Hazzard but that just means Lakuka has more space to operate, for example.

I have doubted all along that England will win and judging our track record of the last few decades and the competition, I am surprised we even made it this far. If we do win however, it will be another glorious British jab at Europe and might even boost Brexit morale.

Yup as you said, without over doing it, just a little better.

To be clear I don't really like how they do it though.

They remind me of the Italian sqad late 90's early 00's. Not the best team but you simply cannot beat them.

 

Edit: Today I guess 2-0 for England. Croatia has a great team, but I think they have spend too much energy already up to this point. They peaked early. I'm not that impressed by England to be honest, but they are able to score quite alot
