Those that took the sports test claimed they got the soccer players right so some must care.

Fantastic game. Yeah, you can call it a meltdown, but Belgium are much, much better, and over 90 minutes that often does through. Their mistake was not doing what do many in this tournament did (looking at you Russia) - packing it in to bog down the game. It's what allowed them to show their goals, and it's what opened them up to the comeback. Bottom line, I'd much rather see an underdog team do this and go out in a thrilling game than be forced to watch the crap that a lot of these underdogs are restoring to to stay alive.

And here I thought @ChaimMoskowitz was an American and a patriot.

Consensus amongst my soccer fan friends is that a lot is predetermined (or else Nigeria would still be there).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

If that was true Germany would still be there.

Might have only been a requirement to not get them out in the first round.

Hey. You don't really expect me to know that much about sports. All I know was whatever was posted on a nostalgia whatsapp group of some friends. And not even all of that. I skipped most of the soccer posts.

+1. It probably won't stay 0-0, but I can handle a scoreless game if the action is like this.

What's great about this game is that there's no clear favorite like so many of the other games, where one team thinks the only way they stay in the game is by slowing it down. Neither really has an incentive to be super cautious.

Belgium's counters are fantastic. Not as good as their winning goal vs Japan, but still impressive.
