    Be fantastic if they went all the way, the closest we will ever see the world cup!

      Then Irish people can go back to supporting Man U and Liverpool.
      Ah I'm only messing, I was rooting for them, I was more talking about the gutter press over there who will find a way to slaughter them if they don't win the final. Glad to see Russia gone, a team of dopers. I'm sure it's rampant in the sport but Russia are worse than most.

          More than likely it will be the winner of the France v Belgium game. 2 real quality teams. I reckon England could beat Croatia though, the Croats look very tired.

            It's very open. On balance (and not just because I bet on them before the Brazil game) I think Belgium have the best chance.

            If the Croats had beaten Russia in 90 mins I would have expected them to beat England, but with the extra time and pens I think it'll take a lot out of them.

            I don't watch that much football bit I've enjoyed this world cup.

              Tonight I went bookie for a family gathering.
              Issue: who will win WC.
              Conclusions:
              Making money as a bookie is easy.
              Losing money as a bookie is easy.
              If England win I'm screwed,
              If France win I'm €10 up.

              ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

                Why not do what the real Bookies do?

                Put eight quid on England with Paddy Power at eleven to four. That'll get you €30 back, if they win, which will reduce your exposure.

                      It's nothing to do with 800 years for me, I just don't want them to win.

                        Me either, it's the fact that they'll be fcuking insufferable if they win and we'll never hear the end of it.

                          Lineker, Shearer and et al would become smarmy(ier) smug(ier) boys till the day they die, and that's reason enough to hope they don't win it. I find their playing group actually likeable enough, although I could do with less of Harry Kane's mouth breathiness.

                          I'll be Belgium and Croatia win the two semis.

                            But doesn't this show the issue is their media, rather than their team?

                            The team hasn't beaten anyone ranked below them in the competition yet, even Croatia are below them. Yet on the other side of the draw you've (3) Belgium V (7) France.

                            You'd say ya fair enough if you were a Germany or Brazil because there is nobody above you to beat but England are 12th! They are potentially going to a world cup final by beating sides ranked 13 or worse

                            The squad and management are outstripping their level at the moment, and may continue to do so against Croatia.
