1…………> World Cup final: France v Croatia 

It’s the biggest day in football, with France and Croatia only one win away from lifting the trophy in the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. 

Not on board the Croatia bandwagon? Fair enough. This French team is pretty magnificent, and they will be incredibly hard to stop. Here’s why they will win.
 Croatia seems to be a pretty firm underdog for this one. But those onlookers would be dead wrong. Here’s why…
And there are no changes to speak of from either side. Croatia sticks with Marcelo Brozovic in a defensive midfield role, and the French see no need to opt against starting Blaise Matuidi in their own midfield. So we kinda know what to expect from both sides now, it’s going to come down to execution on the day. 
Here we are, the biggest day in football. Years of qualifying and a month-long festival in Russia has brought us to this – France against Croatia, with the opportunity to lift the famous trophy only one victory away.

It’s been an excellent tournament and one that deserves a fitting final to send us out on a high note. All the ingredients are there for a memorable World Cup final, with both the French and Croatian teams littered with talent, but with such a prize on offer, will the big players freeze? And who will be the one to write his name into football folklore?

We can’t wait to find out. And you can follow every single bit of the action right here in our blog. Don’t go anywhere. 

Breaking: France 2, Croatia 1, 38 minutes in the game.

2…………> Chicago Violence: Casualties

Police in Chicago has clashed with protesters after an officer fatally shot a black man who was suspected of carrying a gun as a crowd of about 150 people shouted “murderers”, threw objects and jumped on police cars during the confrontation in Chicago’s South Side area.

Officers armed with batons traded punches with the protesters, and three officers sustained minor injuries and there were four arrests.


3…………> Not Much Expected: Trump/Putin Lunch

President Trump has said he has “low expectations” for his meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin in Finland, but he said that “nothing bad” and “maybe some good” would come out of the encounter.

He also said he would raise the subject of 12 Russians indicted for alleged hacking during the 2016 US election – but “hadn’t thought” about asking for their extradition, a news that will please his “collusion” detractors, and almost certainly anger his supporters.

4…………> Paraglider Message: Trump In Scotland


A paraglider with a flying banner that dove within 200 feet of the president read, “Trump Well Below Par #Resist,” despite no-fly zone implemented by Scottish officials for the duration of Mr. Trump stay, forcing security rushing indoors as the Greenpeace pilot comes over.

Although Greenpeace officials did inform the local police, the police air incident advisor and the Prestwick air traffic control about their plans, a manhunt has since been launched for the pilot.
