I dont think it will be 3-0

While I think France will win, they will probably go into super defensive mode to cut down the Croatia attack (similar to what they did with Belgium). I figure it will be either 1-0, 2-1 (most probable), or tie with golden goal afterwards (least probable).

This caught me by surprise as I never saw any mention of it. They changed the rules this WC.

It was only used in the 98 and 02 WCs, but whatever.

Mr Expert Football Guy here.

I think no one needs to read anything you write on this subject anymore.

You would think he would have noticed some OT goals scored in a few of the games this WC that didn't cause the game to end?

But whatever

Like that Russia finish. Woulda been very confusing if they'd ended up winning on those penalties

So Tottenham is playing a game here in a couple weeks. The 10 yo really wants to go. I tried to explain to him that the guys he's seen on TV the past couple weeks won't be playing. Also, calling it the "International Champions Cup" is great marketing, as people think that the games mean something and they are playing a real tournament.

I think I have gotten through explaining to him that it is just like the NFL preseason, but just a fancier name.
