    Tough one to call, probably the 2 best teams that have been in the Tournament. In fact not probably, definitely.

    Agree.

    Will be very close but plumped for France in extra time or pens.

    Would have made a great final.

    Winner of this wins the tournament for me..

    I think France will do it. Experience of the last Euro's will get them over the finishing line this time..

    Think it will be France with Mbappe being the main difference. Looking forward to this game.

    Aye hes unstoppable on form. I can see him catching kane for golden boot. England better hope he gets injured if they make the final. He's brilliant.

    2 poorest teams left in the tournament , the French will win as Belgium can't defend wide play. I would rather play Belgium in the final if we beat Croatia but can't see it happening.

    I know you're a Boro fan Bob but you can't genuinely believe they aren't the strongest two teams. Left this is getting dangerously close to trolling.

    Do not worry good pal the weak link in the last 4 is by far England,i cannot remember a team that has got to the last 4 with such low competition,but they will get just that against Croatia and out they go,trolls and all:56:

    I still think they have yet to hit their best together. the triangle of Hazzard , Lukaku and KDB is as good as it gets in the attacking sense.Usually at chelsea , if you mark hazard out of the game, chelsea look lost but with belguim if you try to man-mark hazard,it just opens spaces for Lukaku , KDB and Mertens. Look at the talent in the squad , Belguims arguably least talented starting player at this world cup (Boyata) is a Double Treble winner with a champions league team, who is a goal threat at set peices and is as good as it gets in the air. so yeah they are a pretty great young team.

    This will be a good game, a drop in standard from the Alashkert v Celtic game, but.

    This, few reds thrown in and the odd injury... Can't have us getting a hard ending to our easy cup.
