So the English were able to disappoint the beautiful women of Colombia & Sweden but they couldn't do the same to Croatia. Bloody hell !!!!!!!!! Typical English incompetence !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They couldn't even keep up at disappointing.

Kalinic will receive a Silver Medal from Croatia team.

Great act by the Croatian but Kalinic should refuse the medal and apologize if he has any pride left.

Apparently he has refused the medal (said thanks but I didn't play in Russia).

Özil has retired from German soccer, citing racism as the reason.

I honestly don't know how to react to that. The whole Özil situation right now is just a mess.

It's a cheap cop out on his part IMO. Is there racism in Germany toward Turkish people? Sure, I imagine it's prevalent like any other prejudice is in any country that isn't 100% homogenous.

Is that the primary reason why fans have reacted badly towards him? I doubt it. He met with Wrdpgan probably having been informed by a handler or agent that it may not be a great idea but did it anyways and now has to deal with the fallout. This sounds more like he can't take the heat and criticism for the Erdogan meeting + people calling out his subpar performances and is trying to use a get out of jail free card to get the heat off him.

Good on Ozil for bailing on that team. It was so easy to use him as a scapegoat when the blame ultimately falls on Loew

Germans don't like associating with dictators, for obvious reasons. He should have known better. It was such a stupid ass decision, it boggles my mind. He had to know that he would get backlash for it and yet he did it anyway. That says a lot to me. Sometimes, you have to choose between dual citizenships and he chose wrongly in this regard.

Does he deserves racist rants against him? Of course not. But he deserves to get backlash for being stupid and, I'll say it: disloyal. Given Germany's history, supporting a known dictator and piece of **** is throwing a big middle finger to Germany.
