Ah, the classic Anglo/Saxon conquered English perception of the Scots and Welsh who still relish our unique Celtic Briton heritage. And btw I think you'll find at least 2 million Scots Rangers fans would have been right behind you. And well done by the way. Good luck against Croatia but no chance;)

I wasn’t hugely impressed with Croatia in that game. They certainly have the talent to create goals, but it was a scrappy game and they weren’t very organised. Should be a good semi-final. If England don’t win I’d like to see a new name on the trophy.
 
The winner should come from the France-Belgium half - the other half is not very exciting. England have not impressed one single game, have been very lucky with the draw and have scored the majority of their goals from free kicks, corners and penalties. Croatia scraped through twice now and must be exhausted.

I sort of agree with you, but I’m not really buying the ‘easy draw’ as an out. There have been so many occasions over the past 20 years where we have had the tough side of the draw, the hardest group in the 2014 World Cup, Germany in the last 16 in 2010. Brazil and Portugal in the QF’s before that.

As for the set-piece argument, i have no problem with that. Should we get to the final against France/Belgium it gives us a genuine chance to win. You can clearly see how well the coaches have worked on set-pieces, and they will give the opposition problems dealing with that.

LOL! that's the game..................

both sides of the draw have given excitement even if england/croatia have avoided most
talented teams

for england it's even luckier to relatively breeze past sweden whilst croatia had to dig deep

glad russia lost...I always support other than the home team

to extra time /penalties was good when england already had their feet up

sadly as soon as england play winner of belgium/france the dream will be over

I don't mind Scots not supporting England (never understand the reaction to Andy Murray all those years ago) just like I am happy to laugh at Scots footballing misfortunes, I doubt many Rangers supporters will be cheering for England either, I have a soft spot for Rangers after Gazza played for them, such a great player for Newcastle but don't like the underlying implications of Celtic and Rangers rivalry - that's both sides to blame though

Scotsman a work says he supports anyone England playing, its a bit of fun, he just has lots of teams to support

My friend, you don't live here, can I respectively suggest you You Tube Rangers and Rule Britannia for a wee start. Every Rangers fan I know are all right behind England. I also think you would be genuinely surprised how many other Scots are behind England. I'm not one, but happy in the fact you have no chance against Croatia;)

Mbappé's antics were a bit annoying near the end, a bit like a young Christiano Ronaldo.
Other than that I really liked what I saw from France, fast combinations and counters, Giroud is such a workhorse, Griezmann is pure class, even when he disappears for a few minutes, Kanté is just relentles and Varane was just outstanding as a CB.
Belgium played well, Hazard was by far their best player (well, besides Courtois), but I the end France just showed a bit more urgency and they managed to win the match.
 
France is very, very solid - and can play multiple styles. Yesterday they were determined not to give Belgium any space to counter, gave them the ball and waited. That was a bit boring, but they looked comfortable throughout. Unless they have another lapsus like in Euro 2016, they should win the final (and they would deserve to).
 
Any sign yet of the leaky French defence? :razz: on a more serious note, I do enjoy those tactical chess games when there's so much quality on the pitch. France played like a machine. It's quite amazing to give away so little against this Belgian team.
