Both keepers with remarkable saves. I think Subasic is the best keeper in this entire tournament.

No driver has turned up, and we're running at least 13 minutes late.

The train usually pulls in at 7:06; so I was resigned to missing the first 15 minutes or so

But now that's at least half of the first half missed, even if we leave at the revised departure time.

Grrrrrrrrr.



Still, no one's going to score in the first 20 minutes, are they; so I'm not going to miss anything, am I?

I have been thinking the same thing lately. :roll:

England def has the momentum at this point. I just wish the officiating was a bit more even keeled.

Decent first half, quite a lot of chances. I was shouting at Young to do one and let Trippier take the free-kick (and sub himself off too if he wouldn't mind) - good goal, nice one.

Sterling has been good in his movement, but please man, just shoot. Takes too long to take a shot or passes when he shouldn't. Just shoot a second earlier.

Decent start, had a lot of chances but need to make them count. If they don't Croatia will punish us. Henderson needs to take control of the ball sometimes instead of lump it up aimlessly. Worst performer by a mile is the shithead that is Ashley fucking Young. Get that liability off.

I've seen this ref in a bunch of European matches, he's really random sometimes.

Kinda weird to say that after the first goal this match, which I'm fairly confident Lloris or Courtois wouldn't have let in.

I thought the same, he should have saved that. I think a lot of people are looking heavily at his penalty record rather than his all-round performance.

A half-time away from the final. IT'S COMING HOME EVERYONE.

I notice both keepers have been quite impressive throughout the match. Also I feel England really needs to up their game if they want to win this match and the final.
Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.

That ball was too well placed for anyone to have predictably saved. That one's entirely on the Croatian player who committed the foul, in my mind.

He's not really booking either side. He's letting them play physically, but I don't think he's been inconsistent.

He should've given at least 3 yellow cards to Croatia in the first half, including one second yellow.
