    Oh my!! Croatia just took the lead in the second half of extra time. Great shot off of a header assist. 2-1 Croatia with about 10 minutes to go.

    Croatia wins 2-1 in extra time. I call that an upset!

    Croatia becomes the first team ever in World Cup history to win three straight matches that have gone to extra time.

    That is why they call it "the beautiful game".

    Eh, not really an upset. Going into the match I thought it could've gone either way, but Croatia's stacked midfield and lethal attack has been on point all tournament.

    Midfield for Croatia was the key. They dominated possession, positioning, and passing. Once Croatia scored to tie it at 1 in the second half it seemed like every player for England lost their heads. Nobody wanted the ball, everything was rushed, and it seemed like they were simply holding on for dear life.

    I both wanted England to win and France to lose. So you could say the finals matchup is not ideal. I hope Croatia throttles them.

    Agreed. After Croatia scored their first goal, it was totally obvious that it crushed England mentally.

    At the end of normal time, England was given a throw in. They didn't rush to get one last chance, they took their time. That's when I knew who was going to be on the attacking front during extra time, and it wasn't England.

    Pretty sure it's been on ESPN literally every day there's been games.
