Match Commentary

  • Messi should have scored if he wants to win MVP in WC

  • Great match, Argentina played so well, their defense earned a great reputation. The best outcome is that Higuin regained his form.

  • I assumed the fact that this website is run on pure statistical analysis would mean the majority of users would be of an age to understand this. I think we have all established that dribbles pick up far too high a rating, so could people please stop complaining? All you ever get is people talking about Messi's rating being too high. Yes, his playing style enables him to generate a rather generous ratung, as he dribbles a lot. I'm sick of Messi's rating being the hottest topic of discussion, no one has anything constructive or interesting to say.

  • that was a beautiful assist from Vertonghen, please correct that whoscored! :P

  • Garay - Zenit

  • Wow, Messi got 7.3? I thought he was the flop of the match. No disrespect but the Argentine side was utterly disappointing even though they have the best attack among all the teams. Germany vs Netherlands should be the final match of this World Cup. No teams deserve more than those two to lift the trophy.

  • @kam one thing that is inevitable on this site is someone complaining about Messi's rating

  • 7.32 to be exact. And James for his yesterday performance got 7.55 ... Ridiculous.

  • @wawa: u got it spot on, its ugly football that wins trophies..#askmourinho

  • Such a wonderful tournament it was. And than QF arrived.

  • Defence won the game

  • @sun As always!

  • It would be a shame if argentinia won the world cup playing such awful football. All these years they played attractive football and lost, and now when they play ugly football they have a chance to win.... That's just stupid.

  • @wawa very funny

  • One shot on target is just not enough to win a game for Belgium. They played in a steady pace without any options to adapt to the argentinian defence.

  • Hazard has been hugely disappointing in this tournament. He had 10 good minutes against Russia and that's it.

  • And yet, he's higher rated than Toni Kroos, Rafael Márquez, Memphis Depay, André Ayew, Keylor Navas, Tim Cahill, Héctor Herrera, Charles Aránguiz, Joel Campbell, Manuel Neuer, Philip Lahm, Guillermo Ochoa, Bryan Ruiz, Islam Slimani, Ahmed Musa, Thibaut Courtois, Wilfred Bony ... ech, screw it.

  • @El_Duderino I have for the most part given up on these ratings tbh

  • @TheFactsProvider Dribblings, Dribblings, Dribblings ... even if they produce nothing

  • Argentina played like Germany, except without their quality.

  • The fact that this website lets these morons/idiots/losers come on this message board and make comments so full of blatant racism and hatred is pathetic. Disagreeing about football topics is one thing, and it's not even important, but coming on the site and acting like a sub-human piece of trash is just embarrassing. DON'T DELETE THEIR COMMENTS, KICK THEM OFF THE WEBSITE. Wake up. It's ruining the experience for (some) the rest of us.

  • @rokka222 everyone is entitled to their own opinion even if it diverges from ur own #thats_democracy

  • @erastus freedom of speech and democracy are 2 different things.

  • @rokka222 I don`t get it either. They get deleted and 5 minutes later another insulting comment gets posted. on any other platform this is not possible. But obviously those are really disturbed people who probably need to take medications anyway and try to channel their general inner anger here. This should be changed...

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • @rokka222 i agree completely

  • I personally think that people who wrote the scripts for this site forgot to add banning options.

  • I don't get Mertens coming in. I thought Mirallas was good and Dries brought nothing fresh to the game.

  • @El_Duderino Not to mention Chadli. I can't remember him touching the ball.

  • Argentina <3 vs Brasil in the final. <3

  • What a boring quarterfinals. Almost no action until last 5 minutes.

  • Messi simply cannot score against Courtois

  • Mascherano immense... easily MOTM! So undervalued.

  • belgium were playing like the match has been fixed I quit watching in the 70th minute and I felt like I already knew the winner

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • Almost scored again! Looks like Higuain has finally woke up.

  • Wow! Higuain scored with his first chance. Biggest shock of the World Cup so far.

  • 2:1 Belgium...they are the only team who played good football in the 1/8 finals. Argentina were pretty clueless and boring against mediocre teams.

  • @mcyeoh92 I know this shouldn't be a concern of mine, but what's the story between the two of you? I've seen you around a lot and while their and my opinion differ in a lot of things, I don't see the reason for this immense hate. Honestly, I feel like this shouldn't take place on this website, one's main goal on a football website shouldn't be harrassing one dude over and over.

  • VIVA Belgium... 1-1 In 90 minutes... 1-2 for Belgium in extra minutes...

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • VAMOS LA ALBICELESTE !!! Messi will score.

  • Holy, I don't think I've ever seen that many deleted comments before the game even started. I honestly don't know which team to root for today, both teams have been kinda sorta disappointing throughout the cup. THis could be a close one, if, and that's a pretty big if, Belgium can somehow stop Messi from being Messi. He's been switching from world class to unflashy every now and then and if he drops his game for just a few minutes, that's when Belgium has the chance of causing the upset here. Really looking forward to this one, it'll be a dense Quarter Final, or so I feel.

  • Man, why Messi isn't MotM already? We all know he'll get it anyway.

  • @El_Duderino OFC We know :) He's that good. I hope you don't have trouble sleeping because of this though. It would be very bad for your health :)

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • @El_Duderino they probably have messi's rating decided already and it's somewhere waiting for someone to upload it here. so far in this world cup: messi overal whoscored rating: 9.3, james rodriguez overal whoscored rating 8.4

  • Argentina team is massively depressing , despite having quality and most lethal attackers in world football , they do absilutely nothing and extravagatly rely on the little master. Less spoken about their defense the better. If belgium gets a goal or two , messi cant bail you out everytime and you may have to pack up. If nobody apart from messi steps up here , its game over.

  • @commandozap yes and the most depressing thing about them is that they are beating the team you root for right?

  • @commandozap Wow, a sensible comment from you. Are you feeling oK?

  • @blitz I'm vast.

  • i think its gonna Argentina most probably its will 2-1 Belgium back to the Home and prepared for next 2018.

  • i think belgium should attack the defencively weaker argentina and win this easily. I think over 2.5 goals for this match

  • Messi vs courtois, I see him celebrating another birthday with new goals, new booth mysterious boy Messi.

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • Argentina 3 - 2 Belgium

  • tight game but i see belgium 1-0 in second half

  • But is belgium a team that will play a defensive partiture? I think not, and thus we'll have a great game.

  • Play hard for Belgium, but the Red Devils can take surprise, Allez Belgium!!! Argentina 1-2 Belgium

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • Argentina 3-1 Belgium

  • It will be a great nd amazing match if Belgium doesn't sit back

  • @Waje it is hard not sit back against argentina attack

  • The Game might be gone for People Penalty Shootout. :-)

  • Hazardinho for man of the match

  • belgium to win 2-1 , hazard to score his first goal in this wc.and mirallas to score

  • I think it will be a great game between two offensive teams

  • 1-2

  • Go België 1:2, 0:1

  • Belgium 3-0 Argentina. Belgium has been insanely outstanting...

  • @AstroGuy Belgium have been defensively solid for the most part and that's about it. Insanely outstanding? LOL

  • @AstroGuy Right, winning every game by a single goal. Sure so did Argentina too, but we're talking Belgium now.

  • @AstroGuy there is a big difference between prediction and wishing
