This photograph of Croatia fans, taken when we beat them 1-0 in 2013 during the build up to our referendum, is reason enough to support Croatia though.

I had either Russia or England v France in the final. As Lianachan said though, that doesn't mean I have to like it. But if England keeps this up, I'll have no choice but to root for France.

90+3 Another extra time. Third ET in a row for the Cevapcici Munchers. Should be interesting, PPs seem a bit deranged.

Any requests out already for the hanging of Southgate, Pickford and Kane? Any Sun, Mirror or so blaring how there is a conspiracy against us because of Brexit?

BTW German TV habe an English expert on their panel, and they are treating him with the utmost respect. Scor one for fairness.

Not yet. These things usually take at least an hour.

Sorry I did not get the name the one time it was spoken while I was watching. He was a wreck, red-eyed and shaky. And he calmly counted down which English deficiencies had won the match for the CMs. He was stricken, but he showed good sportsmanship.

Press reactions today: To be good in standard situations while squandering chances that result from the flow of the game is too little if you have a capable, utterly motivated opposition with goalgetters like Periśić or Mandzukić.

And of course, psyche. The English defence was rock steady until it wasn't. It began to crumble after the equalizer, and a more mature team would have played it safe and steady (like the French did the day before), hoping for a few more shots against a team that was a little weaker and slower physically and had done more work.

These things can be learnt and practiced. The side is rather young, so even if our Scottish friends find it abhorrent, I think we'll see a lot of good football from this England team.

You would think so, but they'll fuck it up somehow. It is odd how English pundits can rave about Modric when he plays for Real but he's over the hill for Croatia a month later.

Social media is providing an endless supply of memes celebrating England's world cup exit, and I found this among the funnier of them:
