Jordan Henderson doing a great Neymar impersonation.

That being said Columbia lucky to still have 11 men on the pitch.

Not quite seething, but hugely disappointed that Columbia did not eliminate England tonight.

Columbia were disgusting. Only a Scot could have wished that team through after last night. They were a disgrace. Luckily your views are predictable and irrelevant on htis subject ;)

50 50 game again. Two well organised teams with not a huge amount of creativity.
I hope our willingness to get forward with a bit of pace creates enough opportunities to convert one. Another set piece but this time I think we will just hold on for a 1 nil win. They have not created many chances in games themselves.

Very closely matched teams though. Sweden put out Holland and Italy so know what they are doing.

As a 46 year old Englishman this is the stuff of dreams!

Do I think we’ll win it? Probably not, but in a four horse race anything is possible!

Just hoping we don’t see any ‘hooliganism’ should we fall at the next fence. As far as the media has reported the whole event has been very well spirited - something I genuinely wouldn’t be the case.

Another game that is there to be won (and lost)
The chance for the players to make themselves legends. I hope they take it!

Great match on at the moment between what has clearly been the best 2 teams in the tournament.

Belgium been dominating thus far, but with the quality of both goalkeepers, could be 1 goal will decide the match.

One goal from a set piece decided it.
Hope that happens tomorrow ;)

Nah, one nil is fine!!

A look back at the records shows that anymore than a goal or two is very unusual (Brazil v Germany 4 years ago not withstanding)

Well played Croatia makes the final a lot more pleasant of a watch now that the media won’t be so annoying.
