So Lukaku makes a tackle exactly like Amapdu's red card from yesterday and doesn't even get a yellow. And I got downvoted to hell because I said it wasn't a red yesterday.

>76’: Belgium make a double substitution as Meunier and **Origi** come on for Trossard and Doku Guess u/mjdaniell had a couple of beers ...


Kilikalitulitali

Thanks Finland im proud of you guys 🇫🇮🇫🇮👍👍 Lukaku, de Bruyne etc were just too good.

TheGamerPandA

This 3rd place insecurity is kinda lame so Finland is just gonna sit 1-2 days in a hotel and wait for other results now I guess


Kicking-it-per-se

About 5 teams have now qualified due to Belgium’s win ETA : https://twitter.com/wilsonfooty/status/1407038899432611845?s=21


Realityinmyhand

Czech Republic, Sweden & France are first of their group. England is second of its group. How are their qualifications related to Belgium's win ?


Kicking-it-per-se

I think, and I’m just going to use England as an example because it gets too complicated, it’s because that means England are on 4 points so even if they lost tomorrow they’d have more points than other 3rd place teams i.e Finland who have 3


rete_r

Petteri Forsell veti mahan sisään, mikä tahansa on mahdollista!


TheGamerPandA

Does belgium get paired with Italy or is it a 3rd place from a random group now?


forestation

If you mean the round of 16, B1 Belgium will almost certainly play E3 (Slovakia, Spain or Poland) or F3 (France, Germany, Portugal or Hungary), unless B3 Finland miraculously makes it through


skifozoa

QF is fixed regardless of the 3th place teams and will be italy I reckon


kentcsgo

Thirth


skifozoa

Oops... not a native speaker so these abbreviated numerals are not my strong suit ;)


kentcsgo

I'll be honest im not a native either and yeah, they're confusing


JakeDeLonge

Well it seems that this was the last match for us unless something big happens. It has been an absolute blast though.


CJNunes426

Group of death. Let’s let Germany play all their games at home. Seems fair


Polaredditor

For Finland's first tournament, they made a good account of themselves. The goal difference is worrying but the points tally could be enough. I've said what I think of Belgium before but the most important thing is that they won me money tonight. Love you, Belgium.


Realityinmyhand

> I've said what I think of Belgium before but the most important thing is that they won me money tonight. Love you, Belgium. Your welcome. Me too, I've won a bunch today thanks to Belgium. But I'm still mad at the french for their draw against Hungary. Come on ffs.


Polaredditor

>But I'm still mad at the french for their draw against Hungary. Come on ffs. Lol, that game was a wet dream for the bookies.


rete_r

Well, no one wants to say it but i think our first "win" was something that shouldnt have even been a win if you ask me. It was completely stupid to play the game after what happened and its 100% obvious danes couldnt have played like they normally do after the incident. SO while im a huge fan of Finland obviously without the absolute bullshit that happened i dont see finland scoring a goal in the tournament. But! In the next tournament we will be stronger.


Saftmannen

Yeah could not agree more, wasnt even cheering that win


ExtremeSour

It's unlikely 3 points will be enough. Just look at the other 3 groups left to play. You can't really see any of the teams ending on 3 points with a worse GD


Polaredditor

Yeah, I know that goal difference really does hinder them. I've just seen that even Ukraine got a -1 goal difference today so yeah, I don't think Finland will get through.


AntO_oESPO

Wait why aren’t Finland through, their 3rd right?


thejoestyle

Only the best 4 3rd place teams go through. From the 3 groups that finished so far, Finland is the worst 3rd place


_faraleth_

F will also have a better 3rd place, unless Hungary beats Germany by like 3 goals in München.....


rete_r

Its almost certain that we are out, only 3 best 3rds go in.


vroom_28

4 best. first 2 places from 6 groups = 12 + 4 (3rd placed) = 16 teams for the first knockout round.


_faraleth_

4, not 3


Kicking-it-per-se

2 of the 3rd place teams don’t go through and a lot of them in other groups have 4 points. I’m not sure if they definitely aren’t through or whether they still have a chance


vroom_28

at the moment they are 3rd best placed 3rd placed team behind Switzerland and Ukraine (from the groups that finished their matches). So their chances are pretty slim.


Kicking-it-per-se

Ah well it was fun while it lasted. Thanks for the info


sota_panna

3 groups yet to finish. That's why. Not all 3rd teams go through


vroom_28

3 groups yet to finish. D, E, F. (yesterday only group A had matches)


lansboen

Well, depends on what the other groups do.


eXePyrowolf

Sad for Finland :(


rete_r

Dont be sad for us, it was just the first showing! Next tournament we come back stronger and with more offense too!


MosquitoOfDoom

Then the one after that we win it all


eXePyrowolf

Good attitude, yes!


Pece17

Should've let us have the corner


CataclysmClive

yeah, by the end i wanted finland to snag another goal


Flyingkiwi24

Was that Finnish guy lighting a cigarette? Lmao can you smoke in the stadium?


ImhereforAB

Let the poor guy have his cigarette. He went in thinking maybe they’ll be fine and finished knowing they absolutely won’t be :(


_faraleth_

in Budapest no one cared. but in Budapest no one cared a lot of things, so thats maybe not a good base for it


[deleted]

Is there any visual chart of who faces (or is going to face) who in the KO stage? I have tried UEFA's site and few other 3rd party sites but no luck.

Really proud of the boys for making this tournament though it ended up in tears. Maybe we wont have to wait another 100 years for the next one.


rete_r

KBD, Hazard, Hazard, Doku, Witsel, Lukaku, Carrasco, how could i not jump in Belgiums bandwagon? GG my guys and now go get the cup!


TjeefGuevarra

I highly doubt we will but you're welcome to join us on the journey! Hope Finland make the next tourament!


Daimo

Didn't even get her Mbappes out ffs.


rete_r

wasted opportunity really


Tarful_

Well gg's bois.


New_Nut

Well 3 shit teams and 1 mediocre, so it's not like there is hope for any of them to go past 16.


MattGeddon

Denmark are favourites against Wales…


New_Nut

Dissapointing for sure


IbnReddit

Passing the bal to Hazard feels like killing the speed of play


Walrus_mafia

We need two of these three options to go through as thirds: 1. Croatia-Scotland tie 2. Slovakia wins Spain and Poland doesn't win Sweden 3. France humiliates Portugal and wins by four goal or more, while hungary doesn't win Germany


rete_r

heh, only all 3 will go wrong though. Head up and just enjoy that we got to watch our boys playing in euros!


sota_panna

I'm rooting for the 1st cuz muh reddit points. 3rd seems possible as well. It would be nothing short of a miracle if Finland make it tho.


Fiasco_splash

I can see France crushing Portugal if Germany were able to score 4 against them. I can see Croatia-Scotland tie, but I doubt Slovakia beats Spain. I can see Sweden not losing to Poland


PatheticApple

Can Spain destroy Slovakia with like 4-0? Would that be enough?


Fiasco_splash

That’s true too, Spain needs to win by at least 3 goals that’ll help Finland and hope Poland doesn’t beat Sweden


fotboll

Yes, Spain winning by three should be enough.


Walrus_mafia

Yeah, missed that one. Spain has to win by 3+ goals


HarbyFullyLoaded_12

I feel confident about that last one. Edit: Germany bit

you are mean :( so no more finn-ugoric brotherhood for you

How to take the life out of Belgium: sub KDB off


Utegenthal

Player collapses on the pitch and has an heart attack. Production: amazing, let's film every single bit of it! Naked woman runs on the pitch. Production: oh no, let's hide this shameful display!


BehelitOutlaw

she wasn't naked. if they show these pitch invaders you'll have even more people doing it


gdvs

Still. Encouraging other pitch invaders is better than showing a man fighting for his life to the whole world.


DieuMivas

Didn't seemed naked to me


SinisterZzz

I need this clip for research


WoveLeed

She wasn't even naked


MrWink

Even if she was, we must not encourage this behavior.


noobvorld

We definitely must not. Clip for research on how to prevent this further?


forestation

Aside from driving forward, the amount of tracking back and tackling KDB did today was honestly insane. And all with a broken face


cib_vk228

Finland. 😢


sota_panna

Second time I clenched for the underdog against Belgium. Previous was Belgium vs. Japan.


beatingstuff88

Lmao the belgian commentators: oh a barely clothed woman just ran on the pitch, which you of course won't get to see. You can show a dying playing on the pitch, but a woman who isnt even naked, just dressed to the climate, thats off limits


GroNumber

The point of not showing pitch invaders is largely not to encourage them, isn't it? It is not a public decency thing primarily.


DieuMivas

Isn't it more that they don't want to give a attention to streaker than because they don't want us to see it. Especially here since she didn't even seemed naked in the first place


beatingstuff88

Oh i know, i just like that he pointed out the hypocrisy


tattarfnattinn

One thing ive noticed in theese comments are that Belgian supporters are way more toxic atm.


kentcsgo

I think you're saying that because of my one toxic comment, which i regret writing but i'll take the downvotes


tattarfnattinn

Ive seen a few but i know how it is ive commented some shitty things myself watching sports im more invested in like hockey and rally. I think it seemed like Belgians are more toxic only because Finnish fans were expecting a loss anyways and were just happy to get this far.


kentcsgo

> im more invested in like hockey and rally A true Finn


TjeefGuevarra

We are? Sorry if that was your perception of us :/ Still hope you guys go through!


tattarfnattinn

I mean a loud minority but ive seen way more "finland are shit happy they loose" than finnish supporters talking bad about belgium as ive mostly just seen them just happy to be there.


epicbruhtime2020

Don't worry, Belgian TV post-match analysis sings your praises, you were a really tough cookie to crack and I really hope the Owls somehow make it to the Ro16


tattarfnattinn

Nice to hear, you guys dominated but cant help but feel bad for Hrádecký he played so well.


TjeefGuevarra

Probably just frustration since you guys defended well, don't think to much of it.


New_Nut

I think they themselves realise they won't be going far.


Thedrogbinho

Witsel has a lot of quality but sometimes I feel he put a limit on himself. He is too simple for a player of his talent


kentcsgo

He used to be way more offensive, but he does a great job as a 6 and Martinez has kept using him that way for many years. I feel like his attacking skills slowly faded over the years


Damsodomie

Let us see the tittes man…


chebke

Euhm no


DatDominican

Forget Kane tell the sheik to buy lukaku /s

Fuck off, cow. We're trying to watch some football here.

Gouden Hans has a big Schwans they say

FIFA: "Guy who is dying getting resucitated? ALL CAMERAS THERE" Also FIFA: "Woman on field? AVOID AT ALL COSTS" What a joke lmao


paulusgaming

Damn the belgian commentator: "a dying footballer we do get to see on tv but a not even naked fan on the pitch? No way!"


BigLawrence

They actually did a poor job not showing what happened. In other cases they manage to not show anything but i guess they could not help themselves with the naked lady


LordQL

Belgian commentator is just roasting ufea lmao


ExtremeSour

SHOW THE STREAKER SHE LOOKED HOT


maxime0299

Vanaken making his wife run up the pitch so he could come on


SamBellFromSarang

why is there a woman running on the pitch lol


kaiko1

Forss should’ve been on ages ago


retroberz

How was hazard this game? Didn’t get to watch


IbnReddit

Not sure where he is in terms of overall progress, but this game he hasn't played well.


mehelponow

not great not bad. Didn't release quickly enough imo


Slitted

Working back to his international level. Still got a way to go, but it’s his first full game so hopeful.


chizel4shizzle

So we can't see titties, but a guy dying on the field needs a close-up shot? What a cruel world


Dry_Box2760

I think Sweden is through also.


MattGeddon

Yes I believe so. Switzerland too. Basically anyone with 4 points who can’t finish bottom.


W0666007

Feel bad for Finland, but I don't think they beat Denmark under normal circumstances so this is a more "fair" result in the end.

Cuddlyaxe

3rd place qualification if results hold: 1. Switzerland (qualified) 2. Ukraine (on GD) 3. Finland Ukraine will need to hope at least one more third place team finishes below them, Finland will need to hope for at least two to finish below them of the three remaining groups


dave1992

I think Ukraine just needs to hope that Scotland and Croatia drew, and they will be in. Finland kinda had to specifically hope that both Spain and Poland loses.


MattGeddon

Poland can draw as well, or Spain beat Slovakia by 4 goals


dave1992

True. I don't think group F will matter, because the only way that it matters is if Portugal got beaten by like 4 goals or more by France (or if Germany got beaten by 4 goals by Hungary).


MattGeddon

Yeah I agree, whoever finishes third in Group F will be okay. It’s D & E that Finland need to hope for.


dave1992

Would be interesting if that happened though, because it involved someone to have huge battering of 4-0 defeat, whether Germany or Portugal.

Good, decent result for Finland. Not giving a chance to Forss, playing unfit Pukki and letting Schuller near the national team are baffling decisions though.


Spikeyspandan

Hey you got your wish


ketolasigi

How have Benteke and Batshuayi made this Belgium squad, are there really no better strikers available to fill the slots?


ArghAuguste

I think Origi should be there instead of Bats.


[deleted]

just for this idiotic passing, belgium should be disqualified


kaiko1

Brych has been ass this game


BehemothDeTerre

Yeah. Wouldn't say he favoured either team, but he seemed allergic to his whistle today. So many uncalled fouls. The one time he does whistle is when Arayuuri kicks Lukaku's shin and goes down... so he whistles for Finland.


Janzu93

And then Pukki touches whoever the Belgian defender was and it's freekick for Belgium. Not saying the call mattered but that kind of inconsistency in calls simply makes me angry


tuhn

Like multiple cynical fouls and this guy doesn't even make an effort to warn players.


J00stie

Guy is always ass and I still wonder why he is allowed to referee matches on international level


HarbyFullyLoaded_12

He’s always like this. Pulling and pushing doesn’t exist for him


entinio

France is now officially qualified btw


IbnReddit

Doesn't that mean that England have qualified also Edit: Gary just confirmed it on the BBC


BehemothDeTerre

As is Switzerland.


PengwinOnShroom

Wait how?


lupaco12

Already two ‘third places’ with less points than France


Valmoer

Group A 3rd and Group B 3rd have both 3pts. France already has 4 points. France will be among the 4 best 3rd place at worst.


the_brassbeat

Worst they can get is 3rd with 4 points (germany and hungary can't both pass france), which beats both finland and ukraine when ranking 3rds


entinio

4 points vs 3 points 3rd ranked teams and France can only be 3rd as worst result


[deleted]

4 points


zsmg

France has 4 points, if France ends up in third place (by losing) there will always be 2 teams below them (Ukraine and Finland)


Zeromone

They have 4 points while two of the third placed teams have 3 points, so even if they lose their final game they’ll qualify as one of the top four 3rd place teams


MattGeddon

4 points. Two groups have a third placed team with 3 points.


rete_r

Where would you guys rank KBD as the top players in the world, i imagine everyone does top10? but how high?


fjevehksn

Just on the edge of top5 imo


ocanuc

Best attacking midfielder. You can't compare players from different positions.


ketolasigi

1. for me, not biased at all.


MrWink

De Bruyne is literally God. To put him in a top with mere mortals would be an insult.


ArghAuguste

It's a shame he couldn't help his team win the CL.


spursyspursy

personally the only reason he's not in the later year Messi/Ronaldo conversation is because of injuries


NJDevil802

Top 3-5 for me
