    Some of the tabloids are calling them heroes.
    Were they that good?
    Was it a great effort?

    Played 7 Won 3 Lost 3 Drew 1

    Not bad but surely not good?

    Should be
    Won first two against hopeless teams
    Lost next one on purpose to get easy side of draw.
    Scrapped through in penalties thanks to a blatant Kane con
    Won against a old Swedish team
    Lost against the smallest nation left
    Then got out classed last game while pretending they were not interested.
    Forget doctors and firemen those bunch of useless overpaid cheats and divers are englands heros

    You are just jealous after Ally Mc's glorious attempt to conquer Argentina in 1978!

    Still not sure which game we drew? Sure Roma could help

    Going by bookies
    All bets are settled on 90 minutes.
    You can get outright betting at reduced odds to include extra time.
    So England drew twice against Colombia and Croatia. I thought you could figure tgat out.

    Where was England in 78?
    When we beat Holland 3-2?

    Come on pretending you did not care about getting third as you knew a humping was coming is poor sportsmanship

    Oh..right!

    We didn't beat Colombia? We didn't lose to Croatia? Wow!! That fact passed me by! Why was I do sad on Wednesday? Why did you say we lost to them a couple of posts up?

    Who knows?

    Did Brazil win the 1994 WC? The record books seem to say so, yet in some people's minds, no.

    God, I wish penalty shoot outs didn't count in WC ko games. Sadly, generally for England, they DO decide the winner.

    Note the last word. Winner

    Ps have already praised the goal by little Archie v Holland. A true thing of beauty, if Pele or Best had scored it, we would see it much more. Sad that worthy bunch were saddled with a hapless manager.

    Let's stop kicking lumps out of each other? Whatcha think?

    Now you are just being silly.
    As a gambler you know fine well what I mean.
    Check online or ask your bookie on Monday if the game tomorrow goes to extra time how many idiots will try and claim winnings.
    You said you backed Croatia? Betting wise the game ended in a draw unless you took vastly reduced odds on Croatia getting through. You must have a daft bookie if you got those odds.
    Note the records books will say game ended a draw then it will say who won in extra time or penalties
    Hope that eases the confusion you must be hurting after that useless England performance today. Must be the worst team ever to get to a semi.

    That will be a 'no' then!

    That's ok

    Obviously, when I took out my 'saver' bet on Croatia, I took odds on 'team to qualify'.

    I think that means 'team to eventually win'. Be it penalties, after extra time, 90 mins

    You still haven't explained why you said earlier we LOST to Croatia, yet now say it was a draw?

    England did not draw a game in this WC. W 4 and, yes, L3 record tarnished by a meaningless last game.

    Still better than Scotland in 78, and any WC since

    Winky face

    And I enjoyed our cricket win v India more than any footy today

    The ignorant, barely literate troll Roma45 fails to understand that superior beings such as myself, who are not woefully ignorant, may choose to edit our posts to confuse racist trolls

    or just may be I have fat fingers!

    Be honest
    Do you ever do a brilliant post.

    Or is that just me...
