As is always the case, they donít keep the ball well enough in big games.

Brazil overall favourites but traditionally the South American teams struggle in Europe with only 2 beaten finalists to their names since Brazil won in Sweden in 1958. If you were offering me a free bet I'd take France with maybe Croatia as a live outsider.

Amount of money invested in this prediction - A big fat ZERO. I also said England would go well  :'(

He is the only one of them talking any sense in fairness. You canít see Brazil, Spain, Germany etc being as bad in the future. They had a great chance, I doubt we will have to worry about it for a while again.

Brazil have been dung two world cups in a row, Spain's golden generation are gone, Germany I give you and yes this was a great opportunity spunked tonight by England.


They're a decent, functional side with no real play maker. Henderson for all his limitations is way better than Dyer who would struggle to get a start for any other team at the wc.

Wright and Shearer are the worst pundits on TV. Non-sensical, emotional punditry, with very little sensible tactical analysis.

Boy did i enjoy that! Lovren motm for me!
Lovren was outstanding, that tackle to deny a sure goal was magnificent.
For the Croats I suspect it matters little who was the motm, they had heroes all over the park. Unquestionably as a team  they did enough to deserve the victory.
