They are. But so they were against Spain. Of course, Croatia does not seem to drymount around. Will be cheering for both of them tomorrow, lol. Also cheering for Sweden.

Pretty comfortable for England. Croatia will be a much tougher test, but they have to beat Russia first! On paper, we may be the weakest team left in the tournament, but in two knockout games, anything can happen.

In the close of the game against Spain there should have been a penalty kick awarded. Dirty, cheating Russians. I hope they lose in the most heartbreaking fashion.

Luls.

Those were some awkward penalty kicks.

Was that heartbreaking enough for you, jj?

So pumped that the semis are a "late" start.

Best thing about England going this far in the tournament? Those Football’s Coming Home memes.

What a wild cup. Only one team in the top ten in the world left.

Match of the cup for me is Japan/Belgium. Epic comeback. Watching Germany battle to the end with 10 men might be a close second.

And France/Argentina was one for the ages. Especially the Pavard outside of the foot Trac Ball curving ridiculosity goal. My jaw was on the ground for hours on that one.

Watching CONCACAF not do terribly well didn’t feel good. Really would have liked to see Senegal advance too. Oh well.

VR has been interesting. Glad it’s not really hampering the flow of play.

Looks like France is the cream rising to the top. The semis with Belgium will be one of the better matches of the tournament I’m sure. Rooting for England, but I think France has it.

Belgium tried hard and maybe deserved at least a draw but it's France through to the final. Can't believe I'm saying this but.....COME ON ENGLAND
