France will beat Uruguay they’re way too good.

France definitely kicked it into another gear today. I’ve said for the last year or so that I think France is the most talented team in the world. Whether or not they can put it all together in one tournament is another question. They full just short in Euros a couple years ago, it’ll be fun to see what they can do with 2 more years of experience.

Give me Uruguay in a heartbeat. They have a real defense unlike Argentina, and Suarez and Cavani can feast on a group that just gave up 3 to Argentina who have been terrible in the attacking third all tournament.

Uruguay can definitely do it, but France is also a solid defensive team. On giving up 3 to Argentina today… One was a moment of magic from Di Maria, the other was kind of a fluky deflection, and then Aguero got one in desperation time right before the whistle. None of those goals I feel were a result of poor defense. You could argue that they should have been out marking Di Maria, he was kind of all alone, but sometimes you have to make those decisions, and tip your cap if they pull something off like Di Maria did.
