If Morocco wins, they will have defeated all 3 countries that occupied them through their history....and that would be kinda cool.

Small justice, but...

That was quick. When France wants to play they are very good. Now Morocco can’t just sit back as they’ve done in previous games. This is good for the game.

Morocco played well, just missed a bit of luck, and certainly showed they belonged in this semi-final.

Griezmann is the quiet force on mid-field behind this French team.

Final next Sunday has a ton of potential.

For those who want to believe this is rigged, it’s a match between Qatars two main foreign employees: Lionel Messi en Kylian Mbappé, both playing for Qatar’s main affiliate Paris Saint-Germain. The dream outcome.

Crap. You may be right.
F'in FIFA for bringing this event to Qatar (bought and paid for). But are you proposing that the refs were bribed too???? For sure Messi got away with at least one and frankly at least two yellow cards two games back. But so did others - conspiracy theorists will call that covering a corrupt ref's tracks, rather than a deer in the headlights which it looked like to me.

No not suggesting that actually.

All it shows is that simultaneous Qatar investment in this WC and in some of worlds best players at PSG is no coincidence. They’ve tried to write this story using a ton of dough and it seems to have worked.

Somewhat ironically I think Morocco advancing would have made for a better yarn in the Arab world but I don’t think Qatar cares about that, just the western outlook cause that’s where all their investments reside as part of planning for life beyond fossil fuels. It’s a much thicker plot than paying off a bunch of refs.

Good read looking toward 2026. Look inward.

Epic. What a game.

Somewhere Ronaldo is gnashing his teeth.

I was on the trainer during the extra time - usually boring just flew by. Had to dismount for the penalties - too intense!

Simply fantastic...stuff of legends. Was streaming it as I was driving back from Boise with my middle daughter and I kept startling her as she was driving as I reacted to the game. 😂
