I'm not bothered, I haven't been watching it and am more interested in the cricket and F1 ATM

If we are to be eliminated it will be on pens & Belgium will get past France.

Bookies favourite for final England vs France. I think quite the opposite: Croatia vs Belgium
As for the scores. Probably low scoring extra time type games. Bound to be because that means them finishing late for me. England vs France would be interesting though

Belgium’s last two games with France have ended 4-2 & 4-3

Our last three games with Croatia have ended 5-1 4-1 3-2

But I’d be inclined to agree with u slightly that they could be close games.

It's a shame, I can't see us beating Croatia but we might run 'em close and lose by one goal. France to beat Belgium and beat the Croatians in the final.

Not so sure I agree they’ve scraped past two very average teams on pens in Denmark & Russia, they have some decent players on paper but so do we.

I’ve not been overly impressed with both teams Croatia or England, but I think we’ve got just as much chance of beating them as they have of us.

I’m quietly confident of doing them.

If we'd been able to add another goal in the first half when we were on top we'd have been through now. Fair play to Croatia who improved markedly as the game wore on. Hope they beat France but it's extremely unlikely.

Great prediction!! I thought England would get the win, but you knew better. Based on your skill at prediction, I advise a trip to Las Vegas or your local bookies.

Something wasn't right with us, too many players below par, injured or simply knackered. The only thing I could think of was to bring on Loftus Cheeky to add some power to the midfield when we were struggling in the second half. Vardy substitution was pointless, why bring on a striker when we weren't creating anything.

But you know what, when the squad was first announced my heart sank, I thought this is the worst England squad I have ever seen. Silly me :lol: World Cup semi finals were beyond my wildest so well done Mr Southgate to you and your entire setup. A learning curve for all, a young talented squad, let's see where they can take us in the future. aniclap

Well, the bookies are happy - they would have faced “the biggest payout in betting history” had England won the cup.

Gareth Southgate to get a knighthood was 2500-1 before the tournament, this fell to 6-4 !
