    And then there were 8. In the World Cup quarterfinals we will see:

    Uruguay v France
    Brazil v Belgium
    Russia v Croatia
    Sweden v England

    Point of this thread is discuss the rest of the World Cup, on through the finals. That said, I'm happy to see France and Brazil in the quarterfinals. Unfortunately there is no way they can both make it into the finals to compete, but it would make for a great semifinal match to see both of them. That's what I'm hoping for.

    For the other semi match, give me Croatia v Sweden.

    Any predictions for the quarterfinals, semis or the final?

    After seeing Iceland and Portugal and Mexico and Costa Rica and all the other underdogs knocked out, I have decided to root for a France v England final. Seem to be the 2 best teams that made it through, outside of maybe Brazil.

    Good call so far. Both made to the semis.

    Update:

    Semis are set.

    France v Belgium
    Croatia v England

    Sadly Brazil is out. On the flip side, Russia didn't make it either. So even's out. Wink

    Feels like England's year to me.

    I think England will reign supreme this year. That entire place is going to absolutely explode if they take home the Cup.

    Didn't expect that. I wonder how much lower the draw will be for a Croatia v France final?

    Vive la France!

    That was one heck of a final. I didn't really have any skin in the game and really just wanted to see a great final match and that's exactly what I got.

    Croatia had so many opportunities to make the outcome entirely different, but they just couldn't deliver when they needed to.

    I was a little bummed when England lost, as I thought that would make for the best final. But it was still fun to watch. Croatia deserved to be there over England, and I think England would have been blanked by France honestly.

    In case you missed it...
