I'm not getting much out of the Chinese-language commentary though.

At least they're not likely to be focusing on letting you know who plays, or played, for Arsenal or Man Utd and how things are getting on in the England camp.

How does one know who to support if you don't know who played for The Arse etc.?

There was a former Ross County player at this world cup actually, but I didn't support his team in any matches because they're all upside down and eat/fuck kangaroos.

France 2 - 0 Uruguay

Seems to have been a decent match. We didn't watch it as the Arnebpack was en route to another raving summer tour of Pommerania.

Smashing great game between the one-seven eleven abd the waffle bakers. Wb's leading two nil, one-seven have just been disallowed a penalty. Great fun.

90+5 waffle bakers win, the one seven eleven are now the one seven one two eleven.

Easimy the best game of the championship so far, the France - Belgium semi might be even better.

Bugger the pinstripe poofters for their easy road to the Final.

I was only able to half watch most of it, but from what I saw Brazil should have comfortably won. I have now officially Lost Interest in this World Cup. My only remaining concern is that somebody, ANYBODY, beat those arseholes to my south.

ETA: Oh Yes, we can add Brazil to the list of teams put out by incompetent referees, or corruption. Clear penalty for foul on Gabriel Jesus not given.

PA just scored.

I just realised, the semis are going to be three Western European teams and one Eastern European team.

Surströmming Pukers 0 - 2 Pinsstripe poofters

Wow, what a bad match. To think of the problems the Schlandschaft had with these utterly harmless Swedes, who were so casually taken apart by the PPs, themselves not a great side. At all.

Hopes now rest on the Cevapvici munchers, provided they at last to away with the Crimea Grabbers

Cevapcici munchers 2 - 2 Crimea Robbers
CMs win on penalties, 4 - 3

Not a very good match, but you gotta love that drama. Two goals in extra time, wow.

Last time we got no surprises in the semis, now we got three:
Tue
Camembert Wankers - Waffle Bakers
Wed
Pinstripe Poofters - Cevapcici munchers

That's pretty good going, I must say. Now with Russia out, I'm struggling to find any teams to be even vaguely interested in. Except the usual, of course - anybody who plays England.

Racially aggravating vandalism, wholeheartedly endorsed by the BBC.

Semifinal 1
Camembert Wankers 1 - 0 Waffle Bakers

Great game, even though it lacked spectacle. The French reminded me of our Schandband in the 2014 quarterfinal against France. One decisive header by a defender after a corner. After that, concentrated defending plus a little luck, and not allowing anything to happen afterwards.

The CWs were lucky as well, because the WBs should have been given at least one marvellous free kick opportunity after a clear foul by Giroud at the corner of the penalty area. Ach well, I was rooting for blackyellow red, but rhe CMs were vcearly better.

We most of us are all Croatians tomorrow, right?
