    This world cup keeps giving, absolutely brilliant! Best in my time since 86 for shear drama... Especially towards to end. And now tonight, Japan so close but good old big bird comes on and levels it!!! Love it.....I think I'm the only United supporter who's glad fellani has stayed, never let's us down and gives it his all...great bloke!



    And it gets even better...what a finish 3-2! Stunning absolutely stunning!!!

    f*** Neymar is a little b****. Why can't refs start giving cards for that s***.



    Go Belgium

    Whew my brackets are safe! That Belgium Japan game had me sweating!



    Agree about Neymar, really a stain on his legend. He's getting up there with Pepe (Portugal) for most annoying on field player.

    And we're through to the quarters first time since ´94. Sometimes a Mannschaft does do better without the big celeb star. Not pretty but it's the goals that counts!

    Unreal! I want to enjoy a 1994 summer aswell! Playing for a medal would be insane
  • Pretty shocking to see England advance on penalties! I was certain they would blow it if they couldn't get one in Extra Time.



    Just have to beat Sweden in the quarters and then the Croatia/Russia winner in the semis to make the final. Couldn't ask for a better draw!

    Get the sweet @:;# in!!!!!! Finally in 22 years England win a penalty shoot out.....only a shed load of gin got me through that. Mrs was out down the street, in fact the whole Street went bonkers! Glad I'm not in work tomorrow, the fact I'm bladdered and it's 11pm helps too...

    Get in!!!!

    True, that side of the draw is the best possible setup for England, but don't sleep on Croatia -- at their best, they can win the entire thing IMO.

    What a game between Russia and Croatia! This has been one of the best World Cups in awhile, in my opinion. I can't wait for the Belgium vs. France game.

    In my time zone the games are 10pm and 2am.



    Can't stay up for the 2am games. They seem to be the better ones.

    Quick word on Mbappé. This kid is unreal. He's only 19. Wouldn't surprise me if Florentino went in with a mega bid for Mbappé this summer to replace Cristiano.

    Southgate needs to be questioned imo. From a neutral perspective, there doesn’t seem to be a Plan B. It is pretty much set-pieces only. Additionally it seemed unreal to me how much fitter the Croatian players were, even after playing back to back to back games with ET now.

    They were fresher and it's the leagues they play in. All of Englands players play in the premier league which is the toughest to play in and each world cup euros we see this....winter break comes in next season so that will help. England were just beaten by a much better midfield simple as that, but christ they've done better than we all hoped. Semi finals from where they were 2 years ago is some achievement.....but euros in 2 years final at Wembley we can hope!

    Come on now, it was just a great game, you cant blame it on the leagues they play in. Top to bottom the Croatia roster has guys playing all over Europe too, I'm not going to say the guys who play for Real or Barcelona should be noticeably "less tired" than the EPL guys.



    Sometimes a great game is just a great game and there's no "blame" to go around.

    It is a fact, even modric has said so. It's the winter break that's coming that's needed. No blame but it's always hindered England but next world cup it can't be an excuse as the winter break is there.
