Title: Round of 16 Day 3: Croatia v Spain, France v Switzerland
Post by: Nemo on Monday, June 28, 2021, 09:07:15
Before the Lord Mayor's Show today: we have two flawed sides in Croatia v Spain and one fairly significant mismatch between France and their alpine neighbours Switzerland.

Not seeing many goals today.

Given what we've seen so far would you put it past the Swiss to shock the French? I think they have a pretty decent side so might do better than some think.

Slightly off topic but after the absolute shambles of the last season I'm really enjoying this tournament. Some good games, great goals, generally consistent refereeing, VAR seemingly being used sparingly and properly, the 'minnows' giving it a good go. Even play acting seems to be less in this tournament as the refereeing standard is so high.

Of course we have England to go out to Germany on Tuesday to endure but i'll get over that quick enough.

Honestly no. Comparing to the Czechs/Dutch game yesterday, the French are a much better managed and less obviously flawed team than the Dutch and the Swiss have fewer players of quality than the Czechs. Would be a much larger shock I think.

Yeah I am inclined to agree. The sulky tantrum French of old appears to have gone and they appear to be a well oiled machine. I can't remember what game it was in the Group stage but there was one game where Pogba who had been playing really well suddenly turned into an arrogant dick trying flicks and worldy balls, trying to dribble around everyone etc. If this mindset gets into other players heads then that could be the chink in the armour that the Swiss need.

The Swiss are a well organised side and indeed, in the Group stages, frustrated the Euro Final-bound French back in 2016.  Not to be written off.

You are right about the sulky days being behind France.  However, I think Pogba for France is very different to Pogba for Man Utd and he is a big "team" player for them off, as well as on, the pitch.

I did have a ticket for this last 16 tie in Copenhagen, Croatia v Spain as it turns out.
No option but to take the refund earlier this year.

Oh yeah, plenty of successful international teams haven't had a pure goalscorer. Giroud lead the line for France last WC, many of those Spain teams played without a striker - even back to Guivarch in the France teams of the 90s. Only really Germany with Klose and Podolski are the dynastic teams with great strikers in recent years.

Croatia goal! This could be a great finish.

Or alternatively, Croatia and the Czech Republic's knockout performances suggest England's ability to control a game is actually pretty good. As great a game as this is I'm not sure it's good for either team's long term prospects!

Was trying to think of the reply and you wrote it.

Yep, I'd take a more measured and closed approach. As BO said, Spain's game management is terrible. Whoever they face next will exploit that (or should). You'd be confident going a goal behind to Spain. Seeing as they appear to need a two goal buffer...are they Town (2020/2021 vintage) in disguise?

The fella (Joe Speight I think), just said "...Spain really know how to keep the ball..." in a match he's watching where they had absolutely awful game management for the last 15-20mins of normal time.

To be fair, I prefer that to the ones who wear them rolled right down like they are in a training session. Also shows how poorly protected some players are. I swear loads of modern pros wear those cheap tiny white vacuum formed ones.

I wish we heard the fucking audio for the officiating teams like we do in other sports. Would put any suspicion to bed.

Not just for VAR but everyone would get a better understanding of why certain decisions are/were made.

Or is it that some people in football need the controversy as they would be out of a job otherwise?  :hmmm:

What is this thing with having your socks over your knees

Better than round your ankles. Jack Grealish for example. Class A cunt. That shin pad is more like an ankle protector.

I would say France may win the shootout. There is something about Lloris that annoys me, goodness knows what though

I have France in my work one, so it's win:win I suppose.

Incredible that it's got this far.

Yeah I said similar above. The ones I used to wear were literally like leg gauntlets 😂

I've got a feeling Mbappe misses his penalty (if he's taking one).

Who would have thought France would be out already. MBappe has been so disappointing this tournament that its not too surprising he missed his pen. Well done Switzerland - well deserved

In all fairness the Swiss should have been 3-0 up against the French before they scored their first.

Yeah they were much the better side. It was a bit of an odd game, the French were lacklustre but then the missed penalty seemed to wake them up and they were unbelievable for the next 25 minutes or so. They then went back to sleep and the Swiss fully deserved the equaliser and ultimately the penalty victory.

Fair play to the 'smaller' teams in this tournament, they've all given it a right go, nobody has been embarrassed and they can all be very proud of their performances.
