The semi's are set! I'm pulling for England now. Not sure who'll win between France and Belgium.

Quite a few people here are buzzing due to the prominent English heritage and number of immigrants from there. The England/Columbia game basically shut things down around here so people could watch (6am start, finishing up around 8:30am).

At this point, I think the expectation is for a Belgium/England final, with England making their ultimate disappointment of getting so close and losing (their words).

Do you think more people are betting on Belgium than France? I was thinking the pull was a little more in France's favor. Either way, I'm expecting some fireworks in that game, hopefully. I think England will probably cruise over Croatia, who I think will be very tired.

Hoping for a Belgium/Croatia final.  I am not a fan of England and France has already won the WC before.

Yeah, now I'm torn as to who to root for in this semi. While I think it would be fun to see a France - England final, it'd also be awesome to see Croatia make it to the final.

Not a problem - Croatia went ahead and decided that for you :)

Let's go Croatia for the win!

Yes, definitely rooting for Croatia to own Les Bleus! Because that would be awesome on many levels, least of which playing three games in extra time in the three preceding games!

To be fair, the first goal was a result of a set play awarded to a dive and the second goal was a penalty.  Mbappe's goal should've been stopped and the other was goalie error/arrogance.
