      Brings a tear to the eye doesn't it? Beautiful!

      Is there much merit to what England fans are saying about the Turkish ref? Please can I have a non biast and honest opinion.

      No. One of the best refs in Europe. Maybe the best and he refereed well. I remember he refereed our epic second leg v Dortmund two years ago where he was outstanding.

      Cheers for backing up what I thought, I didn't really think would could complain about any of the Croatian goals. Foot to ball. I would be pissed if we scored that and it got ruled out. Walker was just a weak link all tourny. I do think this squad will be better in the future, but we aint winning sh*t in Qatar.

      True! Congrats Dadorious and enjoy it.

      I visited Croatia last year and loved it, what a beautiful country!

      Thanks!

      Absolutely buzzing it's all too surreal that we're in the final of all finals!

      Congratulations, didn't know you were from Croatia too.

      I still remember cheering on Croatia in 1998 - getting home from school early so I could watch part of the match. Those Thuram goals were heartbreaking.

      Incredible for a country with 4 million people to reach the semis in their first ever participation and now the final 20 years later. Whatever happens this has been a great achievement.

      I've been ABF (Anyone But France) since the semis so I'll most definitely be cheering on Croatia. Sucks to hear of those fascist chants and crap like that, but I'm willing to leave that aside because my experience in Croatia was overwhelmingly positive last year, great food, warm people,  and it really wowed me how beautiful the country is. ;D

      Thank you Diego.

      In fact I'm half Croat half Slovene living in Slovenia (neighbours). But as my dad is Croatian and it is very close (watched games in Croatian squires) i feel very connected to Croatia.

      regarding Thuram- it still hurts especially as those were his only goals in a France shirt in 100+ appearances

      I think there were some comments over that on the Dejan Lovren thread.
      I haven't bothered to look it up because I don't want to find reasons to support France :D, but can anyone explain? It was said that players were singing fascist related crap.

      Ok, interesting! I wish to visit the Balkans region and countries nearby with a bit more time in the future, including making a visit to Kate (a regular poster here, though I haven't seen her in the forum for a while) in Macedonia :)

      Responded.

      Now as for my assessment of the England game the  better team deservedly won. The commitment, passion, and energy shown by the players was unbelievable (Brozovic ran for 16.6km FIFA record) the English with their arrogance, brashness, and cockiness prior to the game did all the motivational talking for Dalic.

      The players were privately incensed by this  and certainly let it be known after the game our own Dejan included who has been superb the entire tournament and absolutely pocketed Kane on the night. The "brave" English lions performed as I expected before the game average as they have been the whole tournament. Bemused again by the false acknowledgement that this has been a great tournament for England, given the draw fixtures and value of squad this was a bottle job against the second decent team they played in the tournament.

      Anyway I am just glad that all the sh*t of "It's coming home" has gone tone deaf now it was insufferable.

      Hahahaha, yes! I have been reading a lot of comments on Yt, Reddit etc, and there are a good few defending why they sang it and saying how it was all a bit of a joke and nothing to do with bringing back the World Cup, and how foreigners don't understand and don't have a sense of humour etc.

      I find it so funny how we were slated (mainly by PL supporters) for singing that song in 13/14 season and the Allez, Allez, Allez song during our CL run, but the English (majority probably non Liverpool fans + Rib :D) pretty much did the same during their WC run.

      Even more ridiculous, the majority are calling Hendo sh*t now after weeks of praise for him. So yeah, f**k those non Liverpool English supporters (-Keith).

      Hell yes. The only way it's coming home is during the 2021 Coca Cola World Cup trophy tour.
