Ι thought it was just a bad game against Spain, but two in a row is not something you can survive in a WC.
They also looked pretty unhappy in general from the start, it wouldn't surprise me if they've been having locker room problems.

If the Boomers gets past the Czechs they'll be up against an old foe in the quarter finals; the only thing higher than the odds of an Australian throwing a punch against a Spaniard are the odds of a Spaniard acting like he's just been punched if an Australian walks within a metre of him.

Bogdanovic looked pretty good too despite Serbia cratering.

Rubio and Baynes are the top-2, obviously.

Fournier has been pretty good as well.

Yeah, gotta be Patty. He's been lighting it up. Bogdan and Fournier have been good too as mentioned.

Patty has been the best probably but Fournier and JV have also been very good imo. While not at all being the best, Frank Ntilikina has been a legit contributer for France. Today will be a big test for him. As a Frank stan love what he's been showing so far though.
