England and Sweden will produce the worst game of the tournament I expect.

 

France v Belgium is basically The Final.

 

Croatia are very talented but think they will choke.

Brazil deserved to go through I think, but luck was on the devils'side. 
I think France will win this, against Croatia in the final.
Time for people to recognise that there are many more great players than just Ronaldo,Messi and Neymar

For me A.Griezmann and L.Modric are at least top 5 in the world, if not top three.

As much as I like KDB and Salah , and although Mbappe is a great talent . Spanish League > PL >>>> French League
Also PSG and Barcelona are overrated, as we saw in the CL. 
In fact, 6 to 9 on your list has been much better at the WC than 1-4

The Spanish league is the best but Neymar tore that up and so would De Bruyne or Salah.

 

With defenders there should just be a separate list. No one would swap any of those players for any defender.

 

I guess Ramos,Chiellini or Godin are the best defenders.

The fact that Belgium won yesterday proves that football is an unfair sport. Brazil played so much better, they created far more oportunities than their opponents but Courtois put up an amazing performance, Brazil missed some shots from very convenient spots and may have deserved one or two penalties. Brazil played absolutely enjoyable football yesterday and it really is a pity that we will not be watching them for the rest of the tournament. I hope France crush Belgium, who are an unprecedently lucky team, first against Japan and then against Brazil.
The unpredictable way this World Cup has evolved, we might as well see England win it.
@roeczak
Messi and Ronaldo ARE a lot better than everybody else. The reason they didn't go as well as many would have expected in the World Cup is because Portugal IS Ronaldo by himself and Argentina was the most aged team of the tournament, and this became very clear against a very athletic French team. Griezmann is good, but he'll never be the killer Ronaldo is or have Messi's ball control. And Atletico will never be Barcelona or Real Madrid. :D

Winning isn't everything, but wanting to win is.

I do not agree with this analysis. Belgium has an exceptionnally good team this year. Able to understand the weaknesses of team like brazil and counterattack fast. Excellent defense with an incredible Kompany and excellent attack with de Bruyne or Lukakou ... just watch them go to win thus mundial they deserve it ...

And you didn't even mention the two players who played best - Hazard and Fellaini.

There is a theme here - they've clearly all learned their skills from the English...

I'm just waiting for the refs to call a penalty and see Putin ride out shirtless on a horse to take it.

Good to see Croatia in the semis.
Honestly I think all 4 are great teams.

Winner of France - Belgium will be the next world champion. I put my (little) money on France.
