    It would be a huge surprise, but England is not going to have a better chance in the next future... So take it.

    So we're playing France in the final? Will be nice to beat them as they're obviously our close rivals, but i think i'd preferred to have beaten Belgium as they're the stronger side on paper.

    Still it's coming home, so we can't complain.

    The closer we get to the game the more confident of us beating Croatia I’m becoming. France is a different level, though - even though they aren’t doing anything amazing they are clearly a horrible side to play against, and if they get the first goal it will be very hard to come back from it.

    We’ll be the fresher side tonight but that won’t be the case if we get to the final, so hopefully we can win it in the 90.

    Strangely, I fear Croatia more than France. I think we'll do well against the French if we get through. I have a feeling we're going to struggle tonight though.

    Croatia don’t look great defensively and their key players should be fatigued as the game wears on. Possibly also vulnerable from set-pieces, which we excel at.

    France have Mbappe who is a complete nightmare to defend against - especially if we have to chase the game. The French have been pretty lucky not to concede in their last two games though so we should be able to get at them and create chances.

    I have that feeling every time we play, it's what nearly 50 years of watching England does to you !

    Bloody hell one game away from a World Cup Final.............will say that again.............one game away from a World Cup Final so no time for being negative. As Jackson stated, with all the big names already home then if you don't win it this time then they may as well disband the national team and take up knitting as the national pastime.

    We will never win the world cup again imo.
    Easiest possible draw and yet we still played shite tonight and bottled it.
