Shhhhhhh
We know how it goes in Europe


 

Yeah, some people are racist, let's embrace it rolleyes.gif

 

Those players didn't work hard for their country (and for themselves) to be called Africans. It is part of their identity, it's where some of their ancestors are from, but people who say "Africa won" aren't just referring innocently to their origins, they're making a point.

But their semifinals against Belgium was more theatre than it was football


If I can give credit to France for anything it is that they have a team that knows how to party, and is the first African team to win the WC

Maybe it's a bit late, but in that match, aside from ugliness at the end, France was a lot better than Belgium, and they're the best in term of both players and team plan in the tournament.

France's defense helped them winning. They locked Belgium's midfield, and locked Belgium's attack basically (It could be more than 1-0)

Belgium knew 3-4-3 won't work with France but still used it.

 

And France was better than Croatia, I understand if it's like WC2006, but this year, France is clearly the best team.

I don't know why it's hard to accept that France's game plan is the best this tournament.

i log in every month but yes, couldnt upvote this enough 

the players themselves expressed their dislike at being called african, never because they're ashamed of their family or origins, because they're not, but because people who say that, from one side or the other, actively deny their french citizenship by doing so. so there's nothing more to discuss 

africa also isnt a country in case our american friends here didnt know







Up, Up and Away!
