Seems the pressure of the occasion and their inexperience played a part. Not getting that 2nd goal whilst dominating was always going to come back to haunt them. I think this is the first time I've wanted England to win and felt a bit gutted for them when they didn't.

The English media, pundits etc can get it right fucking up em though. :fu:

I knew Croatia would be stubborn and play hard until the end. Hopefully they do well against France. :badteeth:

A necktie, or simply a tie, is a long piece of cloth, worn usually by men, for decorative purposes around the neck,
resting under the shirt collar and knotted at the throat.

The modern necktie spread by Europe traces back to the time of the Thirty Years' War (1618–1648) when Croatian
mercenaries from the Croatian Military Frontier in French service, wearing their traditional small, knotted neckerchiefs,
aroused the interest of the Parisians. Because of the slight difference between the Croatian word for Croats, Hrvati, and
the French word, Croates, the garment gained the name "cravat" ("cravate" in French). The boy-king Louis XIV began
wearing a lace cravat about 1646, when he was seven, and set the fashion for French nobility. This new article of clothing
started a fashion craze in Europe; both men and women wore pieces of fabric around their necks. From its introduction by
the French king, men wore lace cravats, or jabots, that took a large amount of time and effort to arrange. These cravats
were often tied in place by cravat strings, arranged neatly and tied in a bow.

Here we go...

How did that goal work? Need to see a replay...FRA scores.

Now, let's add some rain.

This a really good game!
