France???

I thought the french would completely demolish jermany, but what I got instead, was one lucky goal and then, the classic formation 1-9-0-1 (1 gk - 9 defenders - one mbappe somewhere waiting to launch himself right into the stratosphere). That was not a playstyle we expect from the favorites. P.S. why referees take so long to call a off-side? are they half asleep or smh??

Yes, I did. That's why am salty. With that form france has no chance of even getting to the semi-finals, much less winning the hole thing

france didn't dominate at all lol sure, they were better on the ball - when they actually had it - but they weren't the dominating team in terms of raw possession and applying pressure

You have no clue what are you talking about thats how they play its ugly football but very efficient (euro 2016 finalist world cup winners 2018) also Germany isnt Ukraina or Poland.

Germany posession 62% Germany shots 10 Germany shots on goal 1 France posession 38% France shots 4 France shots on goal 1

Offside decisions that include close calls have to come directly from VAR, so it takes time for them to determine and communicate the decision.
2021-06-15 23:30
ban VAR
2021-06-15 23:31
only watched first half France wasn't bad at all

thats how France won world cup - DEFEND shoot the ball to Mbappe, pray that he does something good and he finishes or he passes to Griezman. Winning tactics - never changes.

I think refs are encouraged to let the situation play out in case that they are wrong, so for example if the striker scores a goal, in history the offside would be called early and the striker would be robbed of his chance to score, now they let the striker play out the situation even if they think it's offsides so if they're wrong, nobody gets robbed

I don't like it very much but it looks like they have been consistently doing this the whole euro. Guess that's the "new wave being a ref"

It is because they have VAR now, so if they end up being wrong about it being offside, VAR can show that they were wrong, so the goal counts.

i mean 2 unlucky offside goals + we at least should have had var for that mbappe run, and if it had been a pen, lets be real, france is scoring 9/10 in a different universe this game easily could have been 2-3 or even 4 - 0

In a different universe everything is perfect. France has insane strikers, but they didn‘t put him into favorable positions. Also pass accuracy was lacking at times.

you know what i mean, it would only take a bit more luck for that result, while it would take a lot more luck the other way around for a german win. i do agree france did kinda mismanage the offence at times, and pass accuracy was either bang on or a bit iffy. but at the end of the day france is france and the defence is pretty solid + all the star players allow for super explosive plays if needed (mostly mbappe lol)

Yeah that defence is rock solid, takes a bit pf luck to get through there, only problem is the one man show in mbappe. I don‘t really know what happened to Griezman, last time he talked about sitting on the same table with Ronaldo and Messi and now he is kinda absent.

Anyone who expected France demolish Germany is delusional bot. Like you cannot expect top 10 teams to demolish each other when each of them has handfull of top players same goes with Belgium,England,Croatia,Italy,Spain etc those teams are literally on top hence these games are pretty much 50/50 with odds

That's our playstyle. We've smart and athletic players so we just control the game and strike hard when we've the opportunity.
2021-06-15 23:33
Both teams played well, but Germany had no verticality and France was unlucky with the offsides, so it could have been a 2-0 not counting the own goal

You know, teams are playing to win not for the show. If playing defensely works, then why should they change their strategy ? Just for your eyes pleasure ? Hell no
