    I am pleased we have got through to the qtrs., The performance against Columbia were poor (But quite tough at times), compared to some of the last 16 games..

    Still a win is a win :)

    We have not beaten Sweden in a major competition for a very long time.. (all records can be broken)

    Sweden are a bunch of quacks, don't sweat it, you'll win. ;)

    They are the dragon slayers of this World Cup cycle. They pushed first The Netherlands and then Italy out of the qualifications, here they finished the group stage ahead of Germany (though they did lose the direct encounter) and they beat the Swiss who were probably mild favourites in that match as well.

    Swiss were a Top 10 side in the rankings.... now there is only 3 left with 2 of them meeting in the quarters... So yes the Swedes are very much giant killers in this World Cup going back to qualification/

    Sorry to see Brazil 0 - 2 Belgium..

    And still see Neymar tactics is making Tom Daley pushed to his best.

    EDIT: now 2 : 1

    EDIT 2:

    Its nice to see this result..

    Brazils version of Tom Daley go out in the qtrs.. And it were deserved. Just so sorry to see the most expensive player try the best to win a Oscar for over acting..

    Well Brazil are out, I'm glad that this world cup seems to be shaping up to be a world cup of the underdogs, hopefully France don't spoil that.

    The match against Sweden were the best match under Gareth Southgate's so far (And that includes the qualifiers) and whilst watching Croatia v Russia..

    If we play how we did to today we have a chance to make it to the final.. If we do I do not know which I want to see there.. .Time will tell.

    @MIG-31 You better hope you don't meet Belgium. France is the weaker of the two.

    Today's game between Russia and Croatia was gut wrenching.

    i have to be the voice of reason I’m afraid.
    Sweden were fucking terrible
    if I were a Swedish football fan today, I’d be thoroughly ashamed.
    Don’t get me wrong, England did what they had to do, and did it well. but Sweden embarrassed themselves frankly.

    My prophecy came true, please believe my next prophecy:-

    *throws bones*

    The bones say England will beat Croatia. The bones, they talk to me.

    England should beat Croatia
    they should make the final. haven’t seen anything very much from Croatia that should worry them if they play to potential.
    Christ, they could just win it. tv in the UK will be unbearable for fucking decades if they do... :p :D

    ^LOL!

    Belgium played very badly this last game, France deserved to win I think. France may very well take it the way they're playing, their defense is cray cray. I just hope England come through tomorrow and that they can put out the french players fire.
