World Cup semi finals set

World Cup semi-fnals are set and there is NO Germany (knocked out in first round), NO Brazil (defeated in quarters yesterday), NO Argentina (lost in round of 16)…  Instead, you have an all-European affair with Belgium, Croatia, England and France.

Tuesday, July 10: Semi-Final 1

  • Belgium faces France – France is a slight favorite

Wednesday, July 11: Semi-Final 2

  • Croatia faces England – England is the favorite

Why wouldn’t England be the big favorite they are against an undefeated Croatian team?  England surprised everyone by defeating Colombia in the round of 16 on penalty kicks.  England typically does not win on penalty kicks.

How did the four teams get here?

  1. France defeated Uruguay 2-1 yesterday
  2. Belgium got by Brazil 2-1 yesterday.
  3. England beat Sweden 2-0 this morning
  4. Croatia just beat host Russia 4-3 on penalty kicks after being locked on 1-1 in regular and 2-2 in extra time.

Will we see an England – Belgium rematch of the 3rd group-stage match in the finals OR will we see old-school England vs France, or will it be one or two upsets? For the record, I had England because the USA did not make the world cup and, despite up against some great teams, I will still go with England to win. Madness? We will see.

Who will left World Cup 2018 trophy?

Congratulations to the West Indies. Is this the start of something good or just a fluke? Stay tuned.

Argentina advances to World Cup round of 16

Argentina defeated Nigeria 2-1 amidst controversial calls by the referee to advance to the round of 16. Messi scored the first goal for Argentina. Diego Mseasons yelled a Spanish obscenity and showed an obscene gesture in celebration after the final whistle.

Sri Lanka draws test series 1-1 vs West Indies

The West Indies lost a low scoring 3rd test by 4 wickets in the Caribbean to Sri Lanka. In the process, Sri Lanka pulled out an improbable 1-1 series draw.

The WIndies did themselves no favors in the batting arena, scoring a paltry 93 runs in 2nd innings, giving Sri Lanka 144 to win. Sri Lanka lost quick wickets but held on to win by 4 wickets.

I am not sure how to grade this series performance.

What say you, cricket fans?
