    England vs. France would have been pretty wild too. Like a colonial war.

    I've been cheering for them since the knock out stage for this reason alone. Have triggered many people, as we have a few friends from England.

    Serious question: do you have to wear adidas shoes with it? It looks weird if you don't right?

    It’s funny how Europeans wear Adidas that Americans wore in 1985. Like here it’s a retro throwback look, there it never went out. I really wanted a UK France final, but go Croatia now. The bars will be nuts, the Croats can drink like Czecks.

    It's around 8 million when you include all the Scots who are supporting Croatia. Want to drink for free? Walk into a Scottish pub and say, "Hi, I'm Croatian!":D

    It's entertaining watching people pretend to care just for the sake of social bonding. Most people in my office wouldn't be able to name more than 2 players on "their" team, I really don't understand.

    Uh... I don't know because I'm not Croatian. Ask Mirko Filipovic or Toni Kukoc.

    Same here, we have a tendency to bond with the Scots (and the Irish).

    Will definitely try that if I find myself in Scotland.

    Well they kicked Nigeria's ass so they may as well win the whole damn thing.

    Wish them luck!

    I'm Russian and I will be rooting for Croatia in the final. If you guys take the WC then Russia only lost to the best. ;)
