While i agree that the 3rd place match is mostly meaningless, i think England is the one country that would be determined to come home with something given their past WC failures.

Goals in the 3rd place game count toward golden boot. Could be a factor for some players.

You know Lukaku scores in meaningless games...

Fascinating looking at the players on the field - Belgians all looking on with anticipation, French all have a look of apprehension.

 

And, in an oddity caused by the angle of the photo, Courtois is in the lower right of the picture, but looks bigger than his goal behind him...

69 of the 158 goals scored this WC have been on set pieces.  43.7%

Has any one seen a stat on how this compares to a league season?  At first glance the WC numbers seem higher by maybe 15-20%.

The McDonald's breakfast one that portrays every American as an idiot when it comes to the sport.

My son is back from college for the summer and has been saying "It's coming home" almost daily since the WC started.

Me: Can you mow the lawn today?  Him: It's coming home.

Wife: You going to be here for dinner tonight?  Him: It's coming home.

Me: Is that my shirt you have on?  Him: It's coming home.  

I'm ready to throttle him.

Classic Hendo 

This has been the most I've ever seen him play. Seems like a real #####. Tries to play the tough guy then makes the most out of it every time he gets touched.

Where I’m working they have a Tv in the break room. But about 30 min ago someone cooked some leftover fish in microwave and it’s bad  Hope no one figures out who did it. It could be ugly. Been about 20 people in there on average during games.
