      That’s a little unfair Diego, he literally had no option besides sending a cross towards Sterling with the hopes that he would somehow get on the end of it.

      Maybe you're right, I just found it a bit funny at the time.

      I wasn't born in 1986 but I always hear great things of the tournament, and the matches I've had the chance of watching were incredible. I used to have a large collection of full matches videos which sadly I lost when my old computer broke down.

      1994 is the first World Cup I remember and it was great in a sense because Brazil won it, but it wasn't necessarily the best tournament. 1998 was probably better. In 2002 the level of football was quite low, it was probably the easiest of all World Cup wins for Brazil. 2006 and 2010 were OKish, 2014 started really fast and fun, whilst 2018 started a bit slowly but has been so entertaining ever since.

      Agree about that Ronaldo incident - I was surprised to see it being reported in such a positive light. It did make for a good photograph but Ronaldo wasn't in the slightest worried about Cavani, he was just trying to get him off the pitch faster. He clearly forces Cavani to accelerate his steps as Cavani looks in a lot of pain.

      I was alive and it was a great world cup. First game I saw was the great Russian Team smash Hungary. Admittedly the Iron Curtain was very much in effect then. The Mexican wave. Its the first world cup I really watched and maybe that had something do with it. Great Teams though. Best Danish side ever, French Team was great, Brazil had a great side (Zico and Socrates were getting on unfortunately)
      Russia, even England had a great side. And Diego absolutely tore it up. The Germans had a very strong side.

      This world cup has been great for entertainment. I think its bringing people back to national football which doesn't have all the problems of inequity club football seems to have in this era of massive investment. Of course I could be over stating the case. The World Cup should be the  pinnacle of football aspiration.

      I haven't read all the posts in this thread and why would I!! But that is some sort of redemption for Southgate. His whole career in management may be a reaction to his own penalty miss in '96.  Its funny that apparently the best penalty takers had been identified by a fairly rigorous process. Well Hendo looked like he was going to shi* himself so I can't imagine what the others were like, or that they did any type of psychoanalysis as part of the test. I reckon Walker was down as a penalty taker and he feigned a hammy strain at the end so he got substituted.  DIer, Trippier, Kane and Rashford however looked like they were well up for it. The final Colombian taker, Bacca similarly looked like he was about to be sick. I played football last night in a semi final of probably the lowest, no definitely the lowest standard in the world. There was no one there watching, the other teams keeper didn't move and we stilled missed 4 out of 5. Mostly down to nerves!!!! I didn't take one as my Achilles was knackered (happened just near the end of the game : ) ) The point is what does it feel like in a World Cup shootout! Unless you are Romario, whom doesn't seem to care at all

      England deserved to go through.  Not sure why Colombia didn't want to play football until the last 15 minutes of normal time or so.  Although they started extra time the better team.

      I don't think the Henderson incident was a red card.  Yellow card was about right.  Harry Kane did well to wait that long for his pen and then stick it away.

      Henderson and Eric Dier's penalties were both poor - not sure I'd fancy them taking another, surprised Vardy didn't step up for one.

      That game last night would have riled up the likes of Beckham and Rooney and would have seen them getting sent off so credit to the team for keeping their heads down and getting on with it.

      There needs to be a Neymar rolling thread now, so everytime we find a funny video of Neymar rolling it can be posted there.

      Must admit was surprised Henderson was on the list in the first 5. However, i don't think it was that poor really. Granted at a nice hight for the keeper but he did hit it in the corner.

      Acts such a hard man and the 'ultimate lad' for Leicester yet when it comes to a penalty shootout in the World Cup Vardy's nowhere to be seen.

      I don't care if I'm being petty over him or the fact I don't know how England choose their penalty takers - if I sense that he's a c**t I'll say it. And he's a proper c**t.

      Vardy might be a lot of things but don’t think you could ever excuse of him ever shying away from anything.

      He’d pulled his groin so Southgate took him off the list to take one.

      I wasn't suprised he stepped up and i wasn't suprised he missed it either.

      He's the type of player to never back away from a pen if called upon, but equally the type of player who makes it very obvious from his body shape where he's going to put it.

      Vardy should have taken one unless he was injured, been in work all morning so not too sure.

      I thought we (England) were poor really yesterday and other than smashing a poor Panama team we've not been great anyway.

      Corners and corners leading to penalties have been our main source of goals and Kane has shown himself to be top class on the world stage in not just his scoring but in his all round hold up play.

      We don't get enough bodies in the box sadly though, probably due to the wing back formation.

      What a plumb draw to face Sweden in the quarter finals though, we're hard to score against and work hard for each other so i'm hoping we can beat Sweden (wont be an easy win for this England team) and see where we are from there.

      By the way there is a world of difference between what Henderson did and what Neymar is portraying to the world.

      Henderson reacted to the situation, i'm convinced Neymar has it in his mind to create situations before hes even stepped on the pitch.

      Like the Aussie ball tampering it's the pre meditated nature of it that really gets on peoples nerves.

      That Colombian fella gave Henderson every opportunity to go down and I was pleasantly suprised he used his brain.

      I dont think you can compare that to Neymars constant antics and poor behaviour or Rivaldo years ago in the corner flag.

      There are levels and limits and Neymar usually goes well too far.

      Vardy was injured.

      England are bang average but can't help thinking we have a chance now based on the draw and heart ruling my head.  ;D

      He needed an injection to finish the match, nevermind penalties.

      Did Henderson milk it? Yea maybe, but it looked like from my broadcast that the blow did draw blood. Maybe that was from him only biting his tongue but I’d have reacted the same way in that situation, the Colombians were playing very dirty and the ref had no inclination at that point to stop it so Hendo milked it for what it was worth.

      Neymar actually had a reason to be upset as he was stepped on with a studded shoe, but he certainly took it to that next level of being shot with a shotgun at close range type of rolling around which is what turns people off. I don’t know that Neymar is looking for instances in which he can try to con refs, I think he genuinely gets roughed up so much that he has decided to make a show no matter what to try and make the most of it.

      My apologies. I stand corrected. Remains a bit of a c**t though (and another example of an English player who isn't exactly morally pure on the field - dived enough in the last couple of years most infamously against West Ham)
