Edging out the previous leader for best save of the tournament, which was also Hugo Lloris.

clearly wrong thread but does Henry have any full time coaching aspirations?

Asking for some one who needs a national team coach.............................. :)

He lobbied a bit for the Arsenal job. 

But maybe he’s really missed screaming at Juan Agudelo.

Every time I see that soccer ball I swear it has red chili peppers all over it.

All this joking and I forgot that Napoleon III did install a client state in Mexico. 

Didn't he also put an axe in Trotsky's head whilst in Mexico?

Hazard channeling his inner Neymar and trying to beat an entire team on his own.

Come on Belgium.  Remember your motivation. These filthy frogs have stolen the frite from you and called it their own.  Time for reparations.

As I see it, there is only one sub from both teams that could change the entire complexity of this game...

Sat next to a nice gentleman of late 60s, originally from Ecuador moved here when he was 16.He's working down the street as a journeyman electrician.   We enjoyed the first half at a bar in the shadow of Trump Tower and jabbered quite a bit about how he got here, why he came here, how great our country is (even today) and he tried to buy my lunch. Little did he know I live at JRB.  Haven't been as happy to pick up a tab since I picked up the tab for the Navy guys on Fleet week during Gulf War 2.  Great guy.  Great soccer fan.  I love the World Cup.

Mbappe worth so much more than Neymar, imo - just based on less baggage alone.
