France, although they're the most overrated team of this tournament, bolstered by better teams throwing the towel in.

Although I like France, I'm betting on Croatia even though they lost to France in 98. :)
I'm from Brazil. Here the only promotion of McDonalds was to take father and son to see the game in Russia. :( I was hoping Brazil would be eliminated in the first round, to avoid embarrassment like #NeymarChallenger :lol:

Kia Sportage and a signed captain's armband up for grabs on these shores.

I keep meaning to ask if anyone plays Fantasy Premier League here. It's an institution where I'm from, good fun, and easy to set up a league.

France is the better of the two teams.

But I usually root for the underdog.

Would be nice for Croatia to win, since France has already won before. That's my logic.

If France wins, it's going to be a double celebration this weekend.

14th July = Bastille Day
15th July = World Cup final
It's not "just" a bang cut! I'm a sucker for bang chops!

Croatia have played 360 minutes over their last three.

Grim odds, but I hope they win.

I picked Germany to win it all, I wasn't even close. and I love soccer :P

France to me is the better team, haven't really given any reason to doubt them. 3-1 france will win.

Croatia. I regret they are not meeting Belgium in the final, though.

I just hope it's a decent game and not a spectacle like the last world cup they certainly paid for Brazil to lose

Well that makes me feel a little better about my Argentina pick. :lol:

I think the same though, France's forwards are way more dangerous than anything England brought in the last game (Cough... Harry Kane... Cough), so I can't see Croatia putting up much of a fight.

France should win. they have more quality in almost every position.

I'm English, so i really wanted England to beat Croatia, but the way the tournament has shaken out definitely left one side of the tournament stronger than the other,

If i had to make a prediction, I'd say France 2-0

Team USA and Team Italy did not make it. I was rooting for Mexico, since they are our neighbors 12 miles to the south of where I live.

If I have to have a team in this hunt,I suppose I'll take France.
