We would be so screwed without Pickford. He is a master class in goalkeeping.

Okay, extra time part two. The lads are looking tired, but they need to defend against a really aggressive Croatia. Wish we had some fresh legs out there, but come on England, you've got to show Croatia a

Congratulations Croatia.1869994306_bristlehead.jpg.0b98472b7f6634171da897d9e42c6b4f.jpg

Your tiny country will be wild with joy. I will root for you over France.

Now I will cheer England's fantastic effort - the boys left it all on the pitch, and they'll be back!

I'll retire now to be consoled by my Lady Wife. >>sniff<<

Well, TBH, the Lions weep tonight. >>sigh<<

Okay, >>clap-clap<< Shake it off everyone. With the way France and Croatia have played, the final should be a cracking game, right? That's what counts, good football!

Proud of our national team, They gave us our best World Cup tournament for 28 years so they can hold their heads high.
Well they did their best Karen and gave it all.
What's really dissapointing is that England were good enough to win this game.
Probably won't have a better chance in my lifetime.

England is a strong, young team with tremendous spirit and top shelf leadership. I'm proud too of our accomplishment and I'm sure we'll make an equally good, or even better showing in '22.

My little chap will be old enough to fully appreciate and understand it all by then, so maybe it will be his generation's golden experience. Look, we're already planning our outfits!

And Mummy Lion has promised to wear her tiara when football finally comes home!

I was persuasively told by my friends that besides football there is also an interesting life. I was quite impressed and wasn't allowed to have a philosophical discussion.

Ok, that was yesterday. After watching a summary of the match for 3rd place, I can comprehend the result. Congratulations to Belgium and thanks to an English team, which gives much hope for the future with these great young players.

Now I'm looking at the final and I'm very curious about the outcome, even though France has just taken the lead so early. Croatia is too tough to be too impressed by this, I hope so....BAM, during I wrote that, they drop the 1-1. VJ, don't write, just watch! 🙄

Vive la France! What a game!

Wonderful, exciting, fair and also the finally deserved 2nd title for France! And my sincere gratitude to both exceptional teams.
Great game and a marvellous advertisement for the "real" (sorry) football.

Great game by France and to be honest, in the second half there were no real question about which team that would win the game.

A bit of a difficult time for me, as I was at a Bastille Day party when England lost the bronze, and everyone was pumped about the upcoming France - Croatia match.  >>sheds a quiet tear<<

Then I jinxed Croatia by rooting for them, but seriously, how fantastic were those last two games!? And we're talking about young teams; we'll be seeing these players again at various championships and in 2022 in Qatar. It's a great time for football!

All on it's own, it was the most exciting, unexpected, engrossing World Cup ever. Besides being the most watched event on the entire planet, here in our little forum corner, I enjoyed the tournament all the more  because of your posts. Thanks for being such good, fun company!
