    Gotta love the instrumental piece in the Uruguay anthem before any words are sung... Almost as good as the player intros to the white stripes

    Chadli starting, Mertens on the bench for Belgium. Kompany also in the starting lineup. Leaning over but no bet, will just enjoy this one.

    in non world cup news, Gianluigi Buffon signed with PSG this morning. Have to wonder what this does for Areola's career.

    Nice picture, Goon. Loved that game:

    * What a run by Lukaku to set up the DeBruyne goal. If that's Neymar, surely he dives at mid-field and makes believe his leg is broken.

    I was in the lobby of the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas this past Saturday watching the final moments of the World Cup soccer match between Russia and Croatia.

    The Croatians were in town to root for Stipe Miocic, the son of Croatian immigrants, and the MGM accommodated the huge crowd by showing the soccer match on the big-screen televisions behind the front desk.

    The crowd loved the results of the afternoon soccer match a lot more than they liked the shocking outcome in the main event of UFC 226.

    Underdog Daniel Cormier knocked out Miocic in the first round.

    England UP 1-0 and have waaaaay tooooooo many chances to get a 2nd - or even 3rd - and KILL the game. They failed to do so and as we see so often in sports - you fail to take advantage of quality scoring chances - you will regret that.

    Pathetic. Not a single shot on goal other than the free kick goal.

    I can't quantify this impact, nor do I have base-rate PRs to apply it to, but ... Croatia has played an extra 90 minutes of soccer en route to the final, which obviously is equal to a whole extra game, AND is playing with a day less rest. I lean France.

    How can you have a draw in a final? Is it just the score in regulation including added time?

    Belgium -144 to win 3rd place over England 1 unit (ET, PKSO included)

    I really wanted to play over in the 3rd place game, the game always goes over, last time it went under was 1974, was willing to bet it over 2.5 -140 but at over 3 +102 or over 2.5 -157 I have to pass.

    While both teams are crushed after the SF's, I like the leadership and experience on Belgium much more than on England. We will see plenty of turnover in this game and the Belgian depth is better that then English depth, not that the group stage match between these two can be treated as any kind of indication. England overachieved to get here, Belgium didn't, I think the Belgian will play with a chip on their shoulder while the English will just go through the motions.

    No, it doesn't "mean nothing." It's just one variable, and may well be priced in, but it's absolutely ridiculous to think it means "nothing."

    every thing technically means something, is usually priced in and usually bet, its better to bet on the fake tired team for this reason or fade the people thinking like this.

    It is abuse to make Belgium and England play for 3rd. Have an All Star game or something with the best players from eliminated teams. No reason to play for 3rd place.

    I am sure they are overaching from something France laid on them, but not from overachieving.

    Belgium was easily the most entertaining side in the tournament, but that side usually doesn't win the tournament. As far as I can remember Brazil 1982, Denmark 1986, Cameroon 1990, Romania 1994, France 2006, Dutch 2010 all played exciting, attacking style and looked capable of beating anyone but in the end a more pragmatic side took them out.

    Only France in 1998, Brazil in 2002 and Germany in 2014 managed to pull it off by playing the game the right way.

    Croatia with two goals in the first 30 minutes.

    One on their own net, though.

    always a draw available in soccer because unlike the nonsensical rules for American sports, soccer bets are for 90 minutes+injury time

    if there's "extra time" (Americans would say overtime), that does not count for the regular bets, only the 'to advance' bets.
