    How very sweet, especially after dedicating their previous victory (against Russia) to Ukraine!

    Agreed their win was well deserved, but I for one will be rooting for France!

    Me too, Go France! The coach that was in the video too got fired, FIFA fined him €15,000. The other joker got a FIFA warning and apologized twice. I still don't except it. I hope he hurts a knee in the next game and that will be the end of his football playing days.

    All in all, Croatia has played 3 extra times, that's like a full match 90mins, they will be tired, but like they showed yesterday, in the first half they reserved their energy and came strong later in the 2nd half.
    France will fancy their chances, but Croatia have got some world class players too,who play for top Europan teams, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Juventus,Inter Milan and Barcelona, these guys know what it takes to win cups.
    Quite amazing for a country of less than 1 million adult males capable of playing football!

    I am not stuck in the 80s, that is what Russian football styles itself upon

    Lets look at stats

    England - played 6 won 4 (one on penalties)
    Tunisa
    Panama
    Belgium
    Colunmbia
    Sweden
    Croatia

    12 goals scored, 9 from set pieces, 3 from open play, never capable of holding a lead, never able to come back from being behind, never able to break a defence down, I think that this is the state of English football and football in general and why we were not interested in going.

    I like the way Russia played in general, they attacked but I really think football is f()cked. the core supporters have gone, it is now just a corporate exercise, no longer for football fans, they will turn up for Euros etc but not for world cup...if England would have won the world cup I would say it was a hollow victory, never beat anyone great, mapped a path to the final and got found out.

    I think that England have lots of good young players but as I always think about England, talent gets stiffled (sp) over system, think Joe Cole etc, great talent but a round peg in a square hole.

    Lets not go for Russia winning anything we may have to go back to the solar system being created or something like that, if I were generous I would say Zenit winning something in Europe .....puts on tin hat and wait for the CSKA, Spartak boys to attack

    Nice links Andy, they are just social clubs, not a recruiting ground that CSKA/Lokomotiv etc were founded upon.

    Poor performance from England, sadly. Oh well!
