It’s Coming Close To Home

at

This afternoon.

Comics Frank Skinner and David Baddiel of ‘Three Lions (Footballs’s Coming Home)‘ infamy celebrate England’s victory over Sweden in the quarter-final of the World Cup.

England will play for a place in the final against either Russia or Croatia, who meet in the last quarter-final tonight.

Coming or going home?

Only you can decide.

    I’m just enjoying this tournament sooo much, even though I grieve the absence of certain teams. The Beautiful Game? Oh yes it is.

            I am Sheik! Joking aside I’m bit disappointed to See Brazil out. Belgium def deserved it last night and after the reshuffle they look fantastic. Could nearly consider the game against….oh they did it!!!!!

            What a fantastic match compared to the dreck on offer at 3 pm. (or by any standard). Now for the grim lottery of the penalty shoot out! :-/

            FANTASTIC win for Croatia, commiserations to Russia, their VERY worthy opponents. What a match!

            BB, you labelled me a rape apologist. Even after I made concessions it could be a misunderstanding, although it was clear what I was saying, you tried to hammer home what I “really” meant.

            Later still I extended an olive branch and you totally ignored it. Anonymously commenting on the internet it really should bother me but it did. Yeah it’s over but just know I think youre full of it.

            Finally, don’t try tell me what funny is. It’s not really your thing.

    In fairness to the tans they are even worse winners than losers
    If they manage to win it out we will never stop hearing about it for another 4 decades.
    Hopefully, Russia or Croatia will knock them out in the next game. If worst comes to worst hopefully they get Belgium in the final and Lose. If they get France, then I guess we are screwed either way.

      Of course if Ireland ever won a men’s football world cup we’d be too polite to mention it.

      And all English people’s PIN numbers and security codes would be changed to 2018

            I have no skin in this at all. I think Croatia would give England more of a game but the Russians would run them ragged and you couldn’t bet against them.

            Ah here! Subasic was half way to the spot when that was taken.

            England will have enjoyed that. Not as convincing as expected and didn’t need those extra minutes..
