That would be an exciting attack. I mean, it already is, but moreso.


I would be good with that - definitely don't want to see him at MU. Wherever he goes, want to see him playing. I don't get the part about the ownership - why would that matter?

I hadn't watched as much Lukaku before this tournament and didn't realize how fast he was. He's such a handful.

That De Bruyne shot was just perfect. If he starts it in a bit more, it hits Marcelo’s leg. A bit outside and it’s off the post or wide. If he hits it with any swerve, it either goes wide or curls back and the goalie saves it. I know he had time to line that thing up but there was one way he could hit that and score and he did.

the thing is, marcelo really isn't a defender . . . glad to see Belgium push De Bruyne forward. They have to be the favorites now.

I don't quite understand how England's second goal isn't offside. Young is clearly off, the ball is played towards him, and while he doesn't try to play it the defense has to account for him since the ball ends up like 3 yards behind him.

I proud to say I called the final four in my office pool. By pool, I mean me and one other guy. Picked a Belgium-England rematch in the final.

This was the only game coming out of group play where I didn't thoroughly enjoy watching them play.

And it really sucked to root against Belgium

Watching Mandzukic score after Pickford screamed at him while he was hurt on the ground, and then watching multiple English players get baited into wasting time with squabbles because they couldn't help but go on tilt was so delightful.

The first half was similar as far as the whistles go. Lovren deserved at least one yellow card and maybe two and didn’t get any.
