      England will never get a better opportunity to make a World Cup final than this.

      Sweden should be a walkover and finally winning on pens is a major monkey off the back.

      Won’t matter though as the winner will come from one off Uruguay and Brazil. Think France will fall to Uruguay, who Brazil will meet in semi finals.

      Anyone who can get through the test Uruguay offer deserves to win!

      I hope Uruguay beat France on Friday, and Suarez kicks the winner and pulls up his top to reveal "Evra is a c&nt" Underneath. However, VAR overrule the red card produced by the Ref on the basis that Evra is actually a c*nt. Then they face England in the final. Again Suarez nods in the winner and this time his T-Shirt reads the FA are all C8nts.

      Not sure, Belgium were lucky and now only have Brazil, France or Uruguay.
      We have to play Sweden and possibly even Russia, tough route for England now.
      We should be okay, we shown what we can do against great sides, just look at the Panama result.

      England losing to Sweden would be the equivalent of us losing to Sunderland, and losing to Croatia would be the equivalent of losing to Spartak Moscow..... they are as good as through.

      Funny how just a few days everyone was saying how dangerous Croatia are etc but now there’s a realistic chance of England playing them in a semi final they’ve gone back to being sh*te.

      So Russian star Cheryshev has had to Deny taking HGH after his it became apparent his father slipped up and mentioned he had this injection.
      For anyone who doesn't know, it is a banned substance that doesn't show on tests because it is increasing Hormones that already exist in people.

      Cheryshev snr hung up on Friday when contacted by the Telegraph about his Sport Weekend interview, failing to respond to further requests for comment.

      Villarreal did not respond to requests for comment.

      I think Croatia are a bigger test than PM has alluded to, especially with such a good midfield, although their game against Denmark was a bit uninspired... Sweden, though, I've been so unimpressed with them even when they won. That strikeforce of Toivonen and Berg, if they played in the Premier League, would probably be at a club like Cardiff to be fair. Their best player is RB Leipzig midfielder Forsberg. It amazes me they've got this far. I'd be very surprised with England's back three had any problems to stop their attack

      Croatia 3 - 0 Argentina.   England 1 - 1 Colombia. I think that Croatia in the right gear can be dangerous.
      They won all their group games. I don't think Cardiff is a good comparison. I think more a Burnley or a Leicester.

      Yeah, but then people realised how sh*t Argentina were :)

      No doubt Croatia will dominate the middle, but England's attacking speed and Kane....  I just can't see Croatia coping with that attack.

      I think Brazil are a better team but Belgium have players that can harm any team, so it won't be easy. As for the tips from Colombia, I'm not really sure, I hope that if we're ahead our players can do a better job than Kane rolling around and Pickford taking two minutes for a free kick in extra time, only to concede a little later.

      Are you being serious now, you are more critical of how England behaved in that game than Colombia, WOW, you just became the supreme WUM I think.

      You think Uruguay without Cavani will still beat France?? I certainly don't. I actually think it will be France v England in the final.

      Rashford

      Lingard

      Not sure about Maguire but certainly not Henderson again, he's not a good penalty taker, far to obvious in his placement.

      Am I being more critical? Nah I just laugh at the double standards. English commentators are now saying the brave three lions were "streetwise" and "smart" - they by default never cheat, it's morally impossible for these young men as the gentlemanly blood of Charles W. Alcock runs through their veins. Do you know how British people overseas are "expats" but anyone coming to the UK are "immigrants"? It's the football equivalent to it. "Streetwise".

      Which English commentators are saying that? The commentary I was watching were critical of Henderson retaliating and pointed out when English players went down under minimal contact.
      You simply cannot condone how Columbia played that match, they were using every single opportunity to cheat and argue with the referee, it was quite disgraceful and one of the worst displays I have ever seen and its very telling that you not only accept it but applaud it.

      I used to quite like your posts Diego but you have really shown your colours these past few days, I'm actually amazed you support LFC, it must frustrate the hell out of you how clean we play with as you put it outdated English morality. Well I'll tell you what, I'm glad LFC and England play with a sense of morality, dignity and honour, something so very clearly lacking from the entire South American region, riddled as it is in corruption and poverty.

      Name one other team that sat their arguing with the ref, knowing the decision to award a penalty wouldn't change with the real reason so the could f*ck up the penalty spot??? Go on, name another team?
      Other than Hendo retaliating, Lingard was the one person having a tug.
      6/11 Colombian players booked, that is over half.
      Not only that, the coaching staff Elbowed Sterling.
      It is uncharted sh*t going on yesterday, you can't excuse it.

      Teams are coping quite well with the england attack though to be honest, they create very little so far. But, as they are showing, get a set piece and take full advantage.
