Love it! Cheered almost as loudly as when Sturridge scored. No idea where that came from (other than my mouth)!

Game of the tournament so far.

Del Bosque and Woy have fucked this up in a big, big way. The team that manages to make it to the final might well be so knackered they'll lose to a Croatia, Wales or Belgium who have had a much easier route.

I'd love to see Wales win it.
If Croatia play like they did today, they'll deserve to win it. Without Modric and Mandzukic too!

Potentially we could get France in the Q/F then Germany, Italy or Spain in the S/F.

We're screwed.

I have no idea how the two halves of the next round work out. Are Spain and Italy now in our potential run-in before the final?

Not sure why Northern Ireland qualify but its brilliant anyway.
Current 3rd place teams are:
  • Slovakia 4pts +/- 0GD
  • NI 3pts +/- 0GD
  • Albania 3pts -2GD
  • Turkey 3pts -2GD

So they're already above Albania & Turkey so go through as one of 4 best 3rd place teams (y)

Updated with pts

We're better off against teams who go out to attack. More open game and we can catch them on the break with Walker or Rose and even Vardy's pace with Alli too. It's those lesser sides who go out to defend I fear more to be honest.
