After taking a big fat L without Belgium pick, we are back to preview the other Semi-Final in England vs. Croatia! Some would say this is the matchup that is less sexy, but I say no! This is going to be a world-class game with some amazing moments. So let's get into the preview!
England vs Croatia
All week, people have been asking me, "Judd who do I root for in the World Cup?", And over time the answer is because of these two teams. France and Belgium are too much of favorites to root for, so between these two who should know you like? It matters, do you like a bunch of sweaty dudes throwing kebabs and beer to the sky when they score their 80000th header of the tournament or a team of overachievers with one very corrupt midget (Modric). For me, I will always root for England, for two reasons, they make the best World Cup songs and cause of our Lord and savior Harry Kane. On to the game, my unbiased opinion I think England have this one. First off, I think the fatigue factor is real! It's bad that every time Croatia step out on the field it turns out to be a long and hard battle and that will hit them HARD, especially in the second half. Also, we need to discuss the battle of Harry Kane vs. Lovren, every time they play Kane turns into more of a superhero than he already is and bangs a few in. I love England money time and love England to win 3-1 at +2000 even more. Footballs coming home baby!
Prediction: 3-1 England
