    The amount of cheering here in Cardiff when Croatia scored was a little embarrassing.

    Oh well, it's only a game. :o:D

    They were lucky with Denmark, they were lucky with Russia, they were lucky that the clear foul in attack wasn't seen and awarded.
    Croatia don't deserve to be where they are.

    The difference with those two tournaments were who was left to play in the final were very, very beatable. Had we beaten W.Germany in either semi we would have won the competition imo.

    True, but as our main Striker(Sterling) (Harry oddly playing in the central midfield most of the time) he wasn't in the box much, so didn't have a good target man.

    As I already said some like Andy Carroll may have made the difference, but I am a bit biased. :)

    France will own Croatia. One more day of rest and no extra time.

    It is pretty amazing that a country as small as Croatia (4m people, half the size of London alone) has made it to the world cup final
