Dier made a real impact last time he was subbed in … Hopefully he does similar.

…aaand a Corner from him already.


#3506

And so near again!! FK!!


#3507

Great defence on the line by Croatia


#3508

Croatia trying to park the bus and get it to penalties. Not sure it will work, penalties nothing more than 50/50 Russian roulette


#3509

Ball was clearly over the line then


#3510

Allllll the 'ics


#3511

Looked it up the other day, suspecting it was the Croatian version of “Mac” or “Fitz” meaning Son of …X.

Is correct.


#3512

Lot’s of talk about the “younger” team, without acknowledging that the older team has probably had the best chances, while the younger team has relied heavily on pure luck to survive.


#3513

Yeah, … whilst they should have more legs, … they also seem at this point to have more nerves as you might also expect from the lack of time.


#3514

Croatia have looked the far more likely to score; they’re actually able to set up in open play to look like score a goal. Can’t say the same about england.


#3515

Big surprise


#3516

OH faaarrrk


#3517

Oh my


#3518

Gooooalll Croatia


#3519

No surprise there. I started watching 23 minutes in and Croatia have looked far more composed and far more dangerous in the front half.


#3520

Omfg


#3521

I knew it. Serves us right for sitting back in the 2nd half.

Overall I’m happy that we got as far as we did, but it’s gutting to go out at this stage. We won’t score now


#3522

Today I am G.Clarkic.


#3523

Don’t celebrate yet, but I reckon your good.


#3524

Fark off
Going to be sunk by one of my favourite players
