    I am so fucking angry! England did exactly what they did in earlier games: took their foot off the gas against decidedly inferior teams.

    Yes the semi finals was a good result but not good enough given the potential of this team.

    Couldn't agree more, and I'm not a "footie." It was glaringly obvious.

    A hard lesson learned by them I guess and adds to experience.

    It's an English side that looked pretty decent though which is good and can hold their heads up this time.

    If we'd have made the final we wouldnt have beaten France who will go on to win in my view.

    In fairness, the Croatians weren't an inferior team, Modric, Rakatic etc. play for top clubs and changed the way they played in the second half to neutralise our wide players in midfield, we missed that final killer touch which will come with experience, if we had it then we would have killed the Croatians off in the 1st half. Hopefully the press won't tear the team to pieces, we were beaten not by a better team but by a more experienced team that have played that level of competition at club level.

    Croatia just looked to have more staying power, maybe the extra experience was the difference.

    I think France will win it now though.

    You must be joking, this was a bit like Leyton Orient vs Real Madrid. Sorry to say this, and I am not a Croatian supporter.

    England was hopeless tonite, even if it would lead 3:0 after 20 mins (which was possible), this would ended 3:4.

    That would be the hopeless England that were winning until the 68th minute and didn't go behind until the 109th minute? Yeah, okay.

    Sorry but I reacted to the bold statement that Croatia was "decidedly inferior team". Maybe you watched some other game.
