The vr called a handball. Cool. Back earlier a tv replay shows a french player blatantly shoulder peresic in the head. A move that flattened him for a period. Shouldnt vr call the ref to see that play and red card the french player for attempt to injure?

It was a blatant move. I hope Croatia perseveres. Oh well. This is fifa
Good job to france. They made the second half a good clean win. Cup deserves to be in their hands.

Ref gave france the win. That hand ball call was the first ever call of its kind. I know the commentators as well as the worlds experts interpreted it to be a goal kick today but i fear that after their handlers have a chat with them that their tune may change.

The better team lost. Decisively. It came not from a Croatian handball. It came from an argentine ref.

France took over. They controlled. And they won. Game wasnt clean.

Im happy for Croatia.

My feelings....

1. Im glad the france win was a dirty win.

2. I would have been crushed if france had won cleanly.

3. At even strength Croatia was clearly domonant and france was playing scared.

4. Two questionable ref calls decided the outcome that resulted in goals 1 and two for france.

5. Something about team Croatia to be said thats not allowed be said. Likely the last time a wc final will see a time like that ever fielded again.

6. France won that cup. Good for them.

Croatia is the winner in my book. France played well but Croatia played like warriors, this was a team with nothing but heart. Their road to the finals was something reminiscent of Spartacus vs Marcus Crassus. Today everyone knows the underdog Spartacus but few can reacall who Crassus was. This is the way this World Cup will be looks at years from now, “The French won but my God you should have seen the Croatians”.

What a final match. Too bad the better team didn't win the game.

Croatia was amazing. What a spirit and how well they played. I have mixed feelings about all 4 French goals.

1 - mandzukic mistake by clipping the ball out of reach for goalkeeper subasic
2 - perisic handball yes agree, penalty just as bad as griezmann celebration afterwards
3 & 4 - goalkeeper seemed to have issues w defending his right side, those 2 should have been defended better

Luck wasn't Croatia's friend today.

Everyone is wondering if the chick beside Putin stole a gold metal. Comments explain, but still funny.

So who was this group that ran out on the field? I got a ESPN update that they got 15 days already. From what I recall of the name, I can't look them up on this computer.
