    Thanks for the tip, sometimes I weep when I think what has become of spoken/written English language,

    AAAAND BREATHE

    When Colombia scored in the 92nd minute whatever it was, I turned to my brother and said "thats it, its going all the way to pens now. And we'll win." but good lord. You could tell from Jordan Henderson's walk he was going to miss his penalty!!! But I knew Dier would come through for the people.

    ITS COMING HOME.

    Fantastic result

    Not least of all because my son won a load of dosh on Harry Kane to score first and England to win on penalties
    I used to be indecisive - now I'm not so sure

    Indeed, my brother had a bet on for Deli as first scorer!! Poor sod. Dont think he touched the ball more than 5 times I can recall.

    Bring on Saturday The hype is just going to intensify now but I feel like the momentum has swung in our favour. I think we'll win Saturday and I think we can go all the way.

    Seven-goal classics, unbelievable comebacks and England winning a penalty shootout - one of the best World Cups of recent times PUTIN should be congratulated on organising such a great tournament.No crowd trouble either inside or outside the grounds.

    I have to register for a race after 14:30, then find somewhere to watch the game (that I can get in) which rather ruins my original plan of a grabbing a quiet meal around 4ish. Oh well.

    Really looking forward to watching the big match on Saturday afternoon!!















    Watching my village cricket team in a top of the table clash!!



    In all seriousness I hope England do well, from the little I have seen I quite like the way that Southgate speaks.

    From memory, England have been known to struggle against the mighty Swedes on more than one occasion, although coming out on top overall. Same for Croatia. Don't know about Russia, especially with home advantage.

    Could England get to the F F F Final?
