This is awful, the World cup gives the opportunity to see the best teams pitted against one another and now we're denied that.
Do you mean the best teams or the nations that traditionally produce the best teams nai?
I think Ally McCoist is my favourite ex-player-assistant-commentator at the moment.
I reckon England have a decent chance today but not a prayer beyond that. It’s great to see an England side have a good a tournament but I think we’re getting carried away with the idea that we can win it.
Agree with Cheque, though not as confident England will win this one. Did we even have a shot on target against Columbia? All the possession but lacking those runs into the box and final touches. We need Lingard/Alli at the top of their game today to break through the Swedish defense. I predict an excruciating 1-1 and penalties ...
I love to see the club names on the flags at England matches- Notts County, Luton, Leyton Orient, Solihull Moors(!) etc. Fits with my theory that for those of us who support terminally dire clubs, England games are that bit more important as it’s our only chance to see a team we can legitimately claim as ours compete at a prestigious level.
I'm from Leicester, so even if England were to win the World Cup it would still only be the second most notable football event of my lifetime.
