@rincon good point on Mac Allister, definitely one of the players who gained market value this wc for us. He's been pretty unsung so far but (like Enzo and Álvarez) earned his spot during the tournament.

Another one flying under the radar is Otamendi, who has been an absolute rock, giving his 2 younger CBs much needed experience and tranquility. But we are due for a classic fuckup from him and that kinda scares me going into the final.

Mac Allistar is a classic example of a player playing at a higher level because he has a genius and God beside him... Messi is giving this entire Argentina team an extra level of believe in themselves just because they believe in him so much.

Brighton should absolutely cash in if they get around 50 million offer for him.

That would be the case if they weren't dealing with their own injury problems (potentially 3/4 of the starting defenders are out).

Cant support Morocco after what their fans been doing in the streets of paris etc., very disturbing. But I'd rather France lose so that Messi has a better chance at gold. Otherwise I usually root for France. That's quite a predicament

Those aren't "fans" per se, they're delinquent unassimilated migrants who capitalize on situations like these to clash with authorities and create mayhem in the crowd.

Well these are Moroccan migrants

it doesnt seem to be happening in Morocco  but its becoming a common theme after every game here and not only in Paris but also in Brussels and some cities in Netherlands iirc, why is that? are they not sending their best? Very Happy

"War zone" Laughing give me a break. I've seen worse in Philly after the Eagles won the Superbowl ffs.

Right wing loons are milking these incidents for all they're worth.

Scaloni has been making changes every game. I guess if they face France he might go 5-3-2. If he doesn't then it's a question of Di Maria or Paredes.

Di Maria always turns it up in finals, so I'm leaning toward him so far.

I don't think he will go 352 against France. It's a bad setup to defend Mbappe and Dembele. It risks one on ones on the wing.

Scaloni generally plays 433 or 442 and it would make sense to double team with De Paul and Molina vs Mbappe.

Di Maria starts from the bench imo since it has been working well for them.


Going 5 at the back means less space in the backline and the defenders can shift side to side quickly. France’s wingers will receive with less space even if they have a more isolated duel with the wingback. You also get the numeric superiority of being able to build 3v2 in central spaces against Mbappe and Giroud.

Morocco’s coach went with 5 defenders. Let’s see how it pans out. I think if they’re able to stifle the wing threat, Scaloni will copy it.

Morocco’s national airline said it was cancelling all flights it had scheduled for Wednesday to carry fans to Doha for the World Cup semi-final, citing what it said was a decision by Qatari authorities.

Morocco responded well, but you feel it's more likely they'll be caught out on the counter attack sooner or later

Was thinking Parades on Griezmann for the final, but Parades is so dense in his head and Griezmann so slick he might just end up with a red card Laughing

The way Morocco were slicing up the French defence must be giving Messi wet dreams. Shame none of the Moroccans had a single clutch gene

Mbappé is a liability in defence. His non-offensive contributions are like CR7/Messi - without having achieved half as much as the two greats. Until he was on the LW, Morocco's RB/RW were having a good time offensively, until he was moved to CF with Thuram replacing him on the wing. That was the end of Morocco's offensive contributions from the right.

As for the final, I feel we have the better squad overall, especially when it comes to subs. France are solid and also lethal with on-form Giroud, Griezmann, Mbappé and occasionally Dembélé but we hold our own and will go toe to toe with them. I also feel like we want it more than the French.

Argentina plays well but France somehow gets away with playing badly which makes them so dangerous. I suppose they also want to make history by defending the title and with the young talent they have they should also be eyeing up 2026 for a 3peat
