I can't call this one.

I hope it's as good as it promises to be.

I hope Belgium but I think it might be the soap dodgers by the odd goal 2-1?

Belgium should win it.

France will win it 2-2 with a shootout.

Too close to call. If France play like they did against the Malvinas, they should win; but not if they play like their last game. Belgium have some very talented players.

Time for a ditty by the Belgian master:

Belgium have been a joy to watch - at times. So have France - at times, but fewer times.

So I hope Belgium.

I'm really torn for this one but since I have France in the final my practical side wants France to take it. But the Belgians have been playing really well.

The real story here, though, is that I have a staff meeting that starts at 1:00 and goes to 3:00. So I'm going to miss half the game. #worksucks

I like France but I have to support our neighbour, the stupid and arrogant Dutch has always been laughing at Belgium, and look who is having the laugh right now.

2-2, Belgium wins on penalty.

I thought it would be the other way round - you'd support France because you occupied them, but not Enlgand because we didn't let you in.

3:20AM and when I go out on the balcony of my condo, I can see the TV in 4 condos in the building across from me with the game on.

France is playing well. I'd be surprised if Belgium turns this around.

Good game. What I'm not enjoying is the Belgian professional fouling. Yes, most teams (except Japan) would do it but, if you're going to commit to attack, then make shite passes while you're vulnerable, but it pisses me off that Belgium do it every time. And they do.

I love how the British seem to have spent more time talking about who they'd rather lose to than showing any sign of hope. Since the start of the cup. It's very British.

I thought the first half of this game was good, but the second half France dominated and Belgium got a few lucky shots a goal which they blew almost all of.

Well if there was an award for being the most entertaining team then Belgium world be my choice. Apart from the game against England, every match has been a joy. it just a shame they won’t be in the final.

Agree with Harry about Belgium, but I’d like to see a few of these younger French players in the Premier League - they’re bloody fast and would be great to watch on a weekly basis.

Scotland were quite good in the 70s, when England was shocking.

In 1978.

Unlikely.

It was part of Yugoslavia.

Actually, in hindsight, Yugoslavia were probably better individuals and not a good team.

I was hoping that Tin Tin's mob would be in the final, but good on France for making it, a wonderful game full of very high class play, shame there had to be a loser.

But, well played to France.
