Of course I picked England and Belgium to win… and of course they both lost. So I don’t know if I want to even hazard a guess for the World Cup finals. It’s hard not to think France is the better team – but it’s also hard not to think Croatia is a team of destiny. The funny part for me is this: Belgium and England played a mostly meaningless game in the third round of the group stage…and now they meet in a rematch, in the mostly meaningless third-place game. It’ll be interesting to see how seriously either of them take this contest.
As for the final? (gulp!) France, in extra time.
(I just pray that it’s not going to come down to penalty kicks!)
