Google says France has 91% chance of winning. I'm guessing they are saying it's all over.
Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

So there will probably just be 30 minutes of France stalling from this point onwards.

Edit: or not even stalling. Has Croatia just given up?

I'll say what I said when Poland played against Senegal in group:
Even though you're down two, you can still do it, Croatia!
(This advice did nothing to help Poland, who lost 1-2 to Senegal. Neither advanced from the group stage.)

Finally a game with lots of goals! And lots of rapid fun plays!
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.



The above post contains hyperbole, metaphoric language, embellishment and exaggeration. It may also include badly translated figures of speech and misused idioms. Analyze accordingly.

This really is a second golden generation for France, so much talent on the pitch, on the bench, and back home. Even under the idiot they've done so well thanks to individual quality.

So, a while ago I asked why Subasic is supposedly 'the best' after he was called that.

Question still stands.

That was the most accidental goal I’ve ever seen on live football.
