World Cup Final and Third Place Preview, tips and betting offers

world cup 3rd and final list

We are approaching the final weekend of what has been a thrilling World Cup in Russia, and just two games remaining. One of the remaining games is the most important game in World football, while the other is a non-event, and something that I am sure the players are very frustrated about having to play in. After the disappointment of being eliminated in the semi-finals, England and Belgium have to drag themselves back out onto the field to play in the 3rd/4th playoff, while France and Croatia will take to the field a day later on Sunday for the World Cup final.

France vs Croatia World Cup Final Preview

The biggest game of World football sees France take on Croatia, and this looks set to be a very good game. Both teams played well in their semi-finals, with France especially looking like they are peaking in the tournament at exactly the right moment. Croatia looked laboured in their first two knockout games, but they certainly finished the stronger team against England, so who knows where their fitness is right now.

France have had the much tougher run in to get to the final, but they have shown genuine quality to overcome all what has been put in front of them. They started slowly, but are now in fine form, and they look like they could beat anyone in the world right now.

Croatia will try their best, but France look to have the quality they need to win this.

England vs Belgium World Cup 3rd/4th Place Preview

The game nobody wants to play in is this one, and I feel for the players having to turn up and play in it. I expect we will see both teams make numerous changes, with those who have yet to feature at the World Cup getting a chance to shine.

Without knowing the teams involved and how seriously the teams are going to take this it is difficult to pick a winner. However, Belgium ‘B’ have already beaten England ‘B’ once before, and there looks to be every chance they can do so again.
