:haha:

How are us Ďnon Englishí supporters feeling.

I always want to try, but English progress in a tournament just highlights how far away from it we are....

Looking at it objectively, I think England will win. But...

Sweden qualified ahead of the Dutch, beat France in their qualifying group, beat Italy in a playoff. Then qualified top of a group featuring Germany, Mexico and South Korea. Arguably these are all more difficult games than the English have had since qualifying began.

Should be interesting and a huge chance for both nations.

Match has stinker written all over it. I'll have it on in the background while I watch the Chester game just to see how Kane adds to the shittest tally of world cup goals ever scored in the finals. Fully expect a Batshuayi type goal, Sterling hit the post from 5 yards out and rattles in off Kane's nose.

Hopefully it goes to pens again.

The Swedish are bleedin awful to be fair....there's no 'factor' to them at all, and in fairness to England they at least woke up after the first 20mins or so, and have gone an grabbed the second to seal it.

Still.....I was hoping Sweden would score there just a few mins back to try and turn this match into something.

Shocking level of quality in this World Cup (despite how fun it's been)

Beat Tunisia, beat Panama, beat Colombia, beat Sweden = World Cup Semi :confused:

He rushed back from injury too soon towards the ends of season IMO, to try and win golden boot. He's never looked fully fit since.

Like us, Spurs could do with a proper back-up striker as Llorente is hardly like-for-like.
