That looks like they drew band names out of a hat.

England facing Russia would be very awkward right now. They might not want to eat or drink anything left for them in the locker room and keep an eye on the Powerade on the sidelines.

heard the first goal while watching the F1 qualifying, massive cheer from Lewis's garage while he was being interviewed leading to the comment "I guess England just scored" might watch the semi if I remember, if we get to the final that'll be easier to remember I think

Quarter final should be up on iPlayer soon. The hype for the Semis will be out of this world, another thing Gareth Southgate has been great as England boss. I think if we do win *fingers crossed* they should keep him on. Jordan Pickford I'm thinking will get a big summer transfer move. Liverpool need a keeper and I think Klopp should go for him 110%.

Vladimir Putin will stop by the locker room during the break to remind his team if they lose they'll all be dead by sunrise.

Semis now set, Belgium and France & England and Croatia. I think if England play to their strengths then we'll beat Croatia and make it to our second final since 1966.

We should have the game sown up in the first half when we were dominating the play. Very disappointed but extremely proud of Gareth Southgate and the team. No one even expected us to get this far so they have done the country proud and come home as heroes. Still the third place playoff to go but that's really an afterthought now. In a strange way I'd rather it happened now than in the Final. But still first semi final of a World Cup since 1990, a young team who will grow and improve over time and only 2 years to the Euros so we can give a good account of ourselves there. The team should hold their heads up high they've nothing to feel guilty about. Real shame we didn't make it and may the best team win between France and Croatia.

What will they do if they win? It will be nuts. Worse than back when the Lakers used to win championships and LA would joyfully riot. Which still makes no sense to me. But Baltimore won their titles in February when it was too freezing cold to riot if you wanted to. Our only fires were homeless people trying to stay warm.

1 -1

I never understood the need to riot if your country or team wins something. I don't really agree with rioting at all since it causes unnecessary damage, wastes the emergency services time and if they loot too takes money out of the pocket out of shop traders. Better to march or protest to prove a point and for sports fans just enjoy the victory and have fun.

At first I thought France was untouchable when they hit 4-1, but then that terrible play by the goalkeeper happened.

Silly error to make, not a fan of goalies doing that because they aren't as technically proficient with the ball as outfield players. But in this case it didn't matter too much.

Final score
4 - 2

Congratulations to France !

Were you rooting for France to get revenge on Croatia for beating England? I would be. I always end up rooting for the NFC team in the Super Bowl for the AFC team taking out the Ravens. Especially because it's usually the Steelers or Patriots, my least favorite teams ever.
