Unfortunately, this WC is nailed on to be won by Russia, with help from the Russian linesman.

It's why I want Croatia to win tonight, even if I think they'll be tougher opponents for us.  It'll just seem dodgy somehow if Russia get through to the last four.

Finally a sports team may accept an invitation to the White House.

Croatia had 2 tough games and look very beatable.

The first decent team England have played in the whole competition, not counting England reserves vs Belgium reserves in the race to lose match. It will be interesting to see how they cope. I cant see England beating both Croatia and France/Belgium but it's definitely possible.

All I know is I'm going to wake up.

And England will still be in the semi finals of the World Cup :thumb:

Think England reaching the final here.

Momentum is behind them and Croatia really struggled with their level in knock outs. Croatia also struggle to defend crosses.

Would be pretty surprised if winner of the tournament dosen't come from the other game though.

Given the way this tournament has panned out, I would probably be more surprised if the winner DID come from the other game. 

If we have learned anything from the last 3 weeks, it's that the unexpected is paradoxically more likely.

We have a real chance.

I think England have to be favourites now. 

On paper and fresh you’d say Croatia. But given their recent performances and their fatigue I think England will have the legs on them. 

Plus their keeper might be out which would be a big advantage, especially if it went to penalties.

Croatia looked good in the group stage but have been pretty poor since IMO. Not an easy game by any stretch, but I don’t think they’ll really trouble England’s defence. Bigger test than Sweden, but very doable. 

England vs Belgium in the final.

Croatia look shaky at the back, as with all games England need to go out and attack them. If they do they will score

I would like to see Belgium and Croatia in the final, as neither team has won it before, but best of luck to England.

As long as France doesn't win.
