    England deserved it more then Columbia, that’s for sure.

    See you in the finals... :sneaky:

    Probably not because there’s no way Belgium will win against Brazil, but one can dream

    If Belgium played a little wider and deeper I think they'd do OK.
    They seem to lack on-ball discipline.

    Found it :rolleyes:

    Belgium is a squad full of superstars but can they gel as a team, I think they're getting stronger with each match but Brazil will be tough.

    England should edge Sweden in the next round, then lose to Croatia in the semis. Brazil v France is a tough one to call, whoever wins that should take the cup too I think.

    Did that even make sense, did it sound like I knew what I was talking about?

    Not a clue, I need @Jacko1066 to sense check my predictions :)

    Thanks, my blood pressure and cardiologists wishes make watching penalty shoot outs a no-no. :nurse:

    I walked the dog during the shoot-out at a nearby nature reserve...but the scouts were at their hut watching the game and were cheering like mad, was good to hear the shouts of "we won!" followed by a lot of noise from town :biggrin:

    It was a sh...y match, but England showed team-spirit and confidence .If I compare this to a certain national team which became last in their group, it's even worse.:poop:

    Agreed. Their conduct against colombian thuggery was mostly admirable.

    Brazil were poor tonight, struggling without Coutinho firing on all cylinders I thought.

    Some very tired Belgian legs at the end, France will be a big test with their pace up front.

    Not sure about tomorrows match, we should edge the Swedes but it depends which England turns up on the day, 2-1

    We'll, it's going to be all-European semi-finals. Up to Croatia to make them all-European Union. ;-)

    Brazil used to be the boogeyman of world football but that ended in 98 (although the corpse did twitch in 2002). Doesn't belittle Belgium's win though.

    England will beat Sweden 1-0.

    France vs England in the final. Anyone's guess...

    Pretty bummed out to be honest.

    But the French played it smart.

    Oh well.

    Proud of my team!

    Belgium had a good World Cup. I hope they finish it with a big win on Saturday. It won't be much of consolation but it will be deserved.

    Tough game, especially against twelve men

    They did much better than I thought they would going into the competition, well done Southgate

    Yes,England can be proud of its team!:thumbsup: I think they lack some experience and that helped Croatia.
