1. I think there could have been a few Yellows for Morocco in this one. They’ve been pretty physical but, hey, if they don’t call it just keep doing what you are doing.

2. I am surprised that France has really just sat back in this half and let Morocco pressure.

3. I don’t think Argentina will let all of those scoring chances go to waste.

4. Terrific play by France to pretty much ice it.

Qatar get Messi Vs Mbappe. They couldn’t have scripted it better for their sports washing endeavor. 

What has anyone learned about Qatar through this world cup that hasn't just reinforced pre-existing stereotypes?  Qatar is exactly what everyone thought it was and few will ever think of it again.

I’d be all for a championship game with a lot of goals. I think those are the highest scoring championship games.

Their commercial was kind of slick. That’s about it.

better discipline in the back four today.  the right wing was wide open all day and it took a miracle to keep a clean sheet but they did a much, much better job of shutting stuff down without stupid shit inside the box today than the last two.

by my god, the midfield.  fofana was a disaster and we desperately need rabiot back for the final.

hell of a run for morocco.  croatia, belgium, spain, and portugal is an all-time run.

theres gonna be a picture with mbappe surrounded by like 7 morrocan players 

Watching it live I thought it was an intentional pass.  It lost a little bit when I saw it was a lucky bounce off a blocked shot.
