Whoever wins re England v France will know they have a great chance to go all the way to the final.
Oh yeah shitting hell I thought that was the other side of the draw
I need to take that back
Portugal look terrific
fartdad Are we out of the group stages yet
genome Awful performance from Switzerland but at least their flag is a big plus
From Despair To Where? Such disrespect shown to Ronaldo by benching him for someone who promptly scores a hat trick.
genome 1000 passes from Spain resulted in one shot on target, no goals.
Football really has moved on from tiki-taka, eh
South Coast RoyalMr Angry Watching Brazil is painful.....not for the football, but the over the top adulation from the commentators; last night, a South Korean knocked a 50 yard crossfield ball to his winger, in space, who took it down beautifully; no comment whatsoever from McCoist.
5 mins later, a similar ball from a Brazilian had McCoist in raptures and verbally ejaculating into the microphone.
Did you hear Jenas the other night eulogising over all the England players and then Lee Dixon doing the same in Sunday's game.
What gets me (if we are talking about personal annoyances) is when a top player does something simple and commentators go way OTT.
Kane's square ball the other night to a totally unmarked player for example.
I have taken to turning the volume down but not always off as the crowd noise is something I like to hear.
Mr Angry As for England, we have reached the level our World ranking - 5th - suggested we would get to; IF we beat France then we would have over achieved.

Its a bit of a free hit against France for the team, lose and its kind of expected based on current form\ranking but that should hopefully give us a bit of freedom to go for it. I'd be surprised if Southgate carried on after this World Cup anyway (unless we win it) so he may feel going out in a blaze of glory is worth the risk and would certainly surprise France.
windermereROYAL So it`s France, Portugal (probably) and Brazil or Argentina (likely) in the final, nobody said it would be easy
