Is anyone else following the world cup? Dare we dream????

Yess!!!!!!!!!

(We could really do with another goal though to settle the nerves).

Welp.

Sorry for y'all. But MAN...England played a GREAT game !!!

It's sad thing but it's been a very enjoyable competition

Glad my 10 year old got to experience how painful watching England normally is. He had been lulled into the false sense of security that they win everything.

I tell you, it's the curse of the white shirts. We always lose when we play in white.

At least we were beaten fairly, and it didn't go to penalties. That would have hurt.

I barely pay attention to this sport and even I was thinking the same thing. These games should NOT BE DECIDED BY PENALTIES!!!!

Sorry for your loss.
Words cannot be enough to help you through this grieving process.

No really I thought they were comin' home for sure.

I am an American and I freaking love the World Cup.

While I do partially agree I have much difficulty in coming up with an alternative. I am glad that Gareth Southgate had such success. They've gone out but it's the first time in many years that there has been so much pride in an England squad.

A friend is hosting for the final this weekend, I'm going to have a Dickens of a job choosing who to cheer for!

Fingers crossed England can snag 3rd place, I feel (and granted, I may be biased) they deserve it.

The last time there was a 3rd place pay-off it was my wedding day (today is the 4th anniversary of our wedding). I'm excited at the prospect of England potentially getting the title of 3rd place.

I am cheering for Croatia in the final. It would be nice to see a different team win it who hasn't won before.

Plus if they win, it means we were knocked out by the champions. Which means we 'sort of' came second, no??

I think France is just too good though. Mbappe anyone?? France outclasses everyone on Croatia. With the exceptions of Modric and Rakitic, and maybe Mandzukic, Croatia doesn't have any truly international class players. I predict a bloodbath if France doesn't play too defensively.

About a different way to decide matches, I would be in favor of 2 mini-halves of extra time (like now), and then instead of penalties having 15 minute periods of play with Golden Goal. That way, after 120 minutes the next team that scores wins but they get a short break every (up to) 15 minutes after that.

Penalties are too much like a coin flip, and I don't like to see teams play for penalties - they should be playing to win.

jmho.

This is probably the first time I've even been interested in the 3/4 game. En-ga-land!!!

Yes pity but England did really well considering the young age of the team and the lack of world class players.

I too think France are likely to win. They have a really strong team.

Here is an amazing French crowd enjoying themselves at a gig with Placebo and Frank Black of the Pixies. Not often you find a Brit (Brian Molko) who speaks perfect French :)

Rocking song!
