Quoted from RJW:

The Croatian keeper is weak.
Those two goals from outside the area wouldn't beat most keepers at this level.

Dude he has been one of the best keepers in the tournament. At this level saves look much easier on TV. That ball is moving so fast, it's where you are standing not where you can jump to. Croatia's keeper has won a couple penalty shootouts too. Subasic is a quality keeper. Keepers are needed when the defense FAILS!

If the BS goals weren't included it would probably be 2-2 now.

Ya, 'Dude', I get that. A shot from outside the box, two feet inside the post is stopped by most keepers at this level. He may have been one of the better keepers in the tournament but those two goals should have been stopped. He was so slow to move on that fourth goal.

When a shot comes from outside the box the defense hasn't failed. You defend to prevent chances from inside the area. The defense can't prevent shots from everywhere and that shot was from 20+ yards out.

A lot of things went wrong for Croatia, how about we agree on that? I'm proud of the boys and still remains my favorite country to visit even though I'm not Croatian. All you guys that cheered on Croatia, do yourself a favor and visit. They filmed Kings Landing and Mereen from Game of Thrones there. Visit all the sites, go sailing in Dalmatia, just go. Croatia is an undiscovered treasure, from Zagreb, Split, Sibenik, Ston, Hvarr, and Dubrovnik it's absolutely Imamaculate, like a legless Baywatch!

Congratulations France. You were the best team on the pitch today. 2018 World Cup Champs.

Yes, totally agree there. Croatia played well all tournament and deserved to be in the final.

Today just wasn't their day but making the final is a heck of an accomplishment for any nation, never mind one with a population of 4 million.

Agreed.
Though the tender truly did help them get as far as they did, he, and the team were betrayed by his lack of position and poor reflexes. Time and again it looked as though his legs were frozen instead of being sharp and immediate.
Felt bad for the Croatians.
They did not bring their best.
Sooo hard to get as far as they did and not play the game that got them there.

500 arrested and 2 dead in France related to World Cup "celebrations." Some drunk dude dove into a very shallow canal and broke his neck. The other one drove his car into a tree.

It is so much fun taking part of the fun in Europe. It is like nothing else. I try to explain it to people in the States, like every goal your team scores feels like your home NFL team won the Super Bowl. Glad you got to experience that. Barcelona is a city like none other. Love the Gaudi vibe, just a cool place to visit.
