Well that lazy shit with an awful touch who can't tackle and didn't track back.

Rolled the defender and blistering finish. Those who will criticise the keeper because it was near post, he wasn't expecting it and look at the pace on the shot.

Great fight back from the Frenchies.

Roberto's boys are bolloxed again. Belgium winning 2-0, France come back to win 3-2. No Nations League Final for the Belgians.

Michael (2), I thought the Belgian wide player was offside when he received the ball but I think it was Lukaku who who marginally offside, loved the look on his face when it was ruled out. "Who, me?" he was asking, who the fuck did he think it was?

Love that Benzema, what a player he has been for Real Madrid and France over the years, not just scoring but assists and working constantly throughout the game, a great team player.

Belgium comfortably winning 2-0 at the have to wonder what Martinez said to them at half time?

Yes, Dave @5, I think you're bang-on with that call. I thought the same that the winger was offside when he got the ball. And Romelu was also offside. Pity. Just a brilliant technique from the big 20-goal-a-season guy.

Absolutely loved his goal (Belgium's 2nd) where he turned, made space, and from the narrowest of angles, fairly smashed it into the roof of the net.

Wraps up on Sunday. I'd better add those games to the OP!

Hate international breaks. Living in Canada, the only coverage is the Canadian National Team with the game and about 4 replays. Not really World Cup standard.

To be honest, I have very little interest in watching international matches. Football is about your allegiance and mine is to Everton. Always pleased if England win, but have no emotional commitment to the score and pass on to the next item on TV.

The Final finally comes to life.

France, great break, hit underside of bar, Spain score.

Then an absolute belter from Benzema!

Tremendous finish from Mbappe but he looked to have been offside.

Two fantastic saves from Lloris as Spain pile in.

Congratulations to France and what a pity Digne could not play – hope he gets a winner medal.
The two semis and this final were great matches.

Me too and I couldn't give a toss about England's score, either. All I want is for our players to return fit... which they rarely do!

Don't know if anyone else noticed but there was a huge Everton flag behind the goal in Andorra.

Great game today between France and Spain. Quality.

Phil Neville has finally lost it. Anyone see his Keegan style rant?

Tom, agreed! England needed a goal so they took off the 3 most likely players to score, and brought on Henderson, Tammy Abraham and Saka. Clueless...
