I was speaking to a real footy fan at work, and his attitude is "we have had a fairly simple route to the semis.... jury still out for me" when talking about Gareth Southgate's performance. So no, there are people who aren't proud of how far we've got. Find it a ludicrous attitude myself, but there you go.

2-1 down with 12 minutes to go, not a good position to be in for England...

[EDIT] They think it's all over...and it is now. England out in the semis.

Unbelievable. Croatians' legs have to be checked for presence of adamantium. Three long plays in a row... and they made it to the summit. What a fantastic game.

Nope. Give it two and we'll be singing that song again.

Edit: Scratch that. Let's keep on singing it. It doesn't state when football is coming home!

Are you sure?

I'm disappointed, as one would be, but I'm not feeling the need to smash up things, or people. Roll on the women's World T20 (2018), the men's Cricket World Cup (2019), the women's FIFA World Cup (2019), the men's Rugby World Cup (2019) ...

England should have won. Croatia deserved to win. Modric was seriously bloody everywhere on that pitch. If England had Modric in the middle field, game over world Smile.

Anyway, I have some minor grumblings about some of the decisions made but even given those England had the chances and didn't take them. They also looked tired, which surprised me.

But they're kids. Bring on the Euros in 2020 and look out world Smile.

EDIT: Spelling mistakes / typos (new keyboard)

They just won. I wouldn't call it deserved. They made twice as many fouls, even without the ones the ref let go. They should've had a few more yellows too.
With the Croatian equalizer Walker almost had his head kicked off. The goal could've been rejected.

France should win this now. They have the best players and team. They should've won the EC 2016.

Not sure I'd disagree with any of that Smile. I'll sleep on it Smile.

Oi! Stepping on dangerous grounds there mate. Razz

Croatia ftw! Teams that qualify with player scoring goal using their hands (Henry I'm looking at you) and then go on TV telling all about how cynical players these days are, get scorn for a generation!

MFG

...Croatia deserved to win...

This kind of statement is one of the things that turns me off football. Pundits in particular (not picking on you, RegisterMe, just using as an example) often talk about who 'deserved to win' like football is marked out of 10 by judges. It's not. It's a game of tactics and skill where the 'better' team (a team with more skill & strength) can lose if their opposition plays tactically better, or even just gets lucky.

Croatia scored more goals than England and thus won. Anyone who thinks it's not deserved should, I suggest, find a different sport; I would suggest Rugby Union, where it's much harder for a poor team to beat a stronger one (but it can still be done - which is part of the joy sport).

- ha, ha..!! Laughing

France are a brilliant side.. they have all the right attributes to go on and win the title,
but Croatia has already proven that grit and determination can come out on top..

- it's going to be an ace final - two excellent teams.. Very Happy Thumb up
