    It was probably more down to Croatia's midfield having better positioning and passing. The younger English team were able to keep up in the first half by running a lot but that wasn't going to work for 2 hours.

    I agree. Beating Tunisia, Panama, Colombia and Sweden none of which are even top 15 in the world and losing to Belgium and Croatia.

    while Croatia did not have the pace to contend with England defense, they ultimately were the fresher team come extra time

    If they reached the final it would have to be the easiest road in world cup history. Not a single team in the top 15. Surely that has never happened before...

    I think teams have probably gotten to the final before without meeting anyone particularly formidable, but that's never going to happen on both sides of the bracket. Tournaments are inherently unfair like that when they're put together with random draws. They had an easy path but would still have had to take out France, so you couldn't consider it Steve Jennum easy.

    It wasn't a bad result for England. They got much further than they deserved to and were never going to beat France. Not when they had a donkey like Sterling hee hawing around the pitch.

    Screw you, mang! I'm not even a football soccer or England fan, HOWEVA... I love the Lighting Seeds. One of the more underrated bands from the 90s. WAY better than Oasis and on par with Blur. This made me root for Jolly Old England. Oh well, we always have that catchy song. :-(
