Tutti Frutti (oh nope, he plays for Italy).

I'm expecting some shenanigans to "win at all costs", from the Master Winker later on.
The artisté formerly known as Cristiano.

Both of my sweepstake teams in action today. Come on the Dutch and Portugueezers.

The Dutch should be ok (just) but the other fixture seems much harder to call. I bet Cristi gets someone like Mertens or Vertonghen sent off - if things aren't going quite his way.

I'm also expecting an appearance from his old friend the Moth again too  :)

Well that makes things interesting. Funny one, I quite like that being a red for the cynicism but so rarely do you see those given.

Glad I didn't make judgement on the sending off before the VAR decision😀

I have absolutely no idea why the Netherlands are considered a 'big' footballing nation or why the media seem to think they will always be there or thereabouts in major tournaments.
The most overrated footballing nation on the planet

They vary wildly, 2nd, 3rd and did not qualify at the last three world cups. This isn't a vintage team but there are some bloody good players in it - just managed by Frank de Boer.

Well lads, that comfortable and boring 1-0 we managed over the Czechs suddenly looks quite a lot better, doesn't it?

The winner of England v Germany has as comfortable a route to the final as you will ever see in an international tournament now. Remarkable.

... Didn't qualify for the last three WCs? Eh?! It might be the power of punctuation but I keep reading this wrong! 😂

A few decent games but not so sure there are as many world class players compared to recent tournaments

Belgium did fuck all for 95 minutes and won it with a wonder strike. But that's football.

Seriously though, another two talented squads under deeply average managers. Are Italy the only well managed big nation in the tournament? Don't think Southgate is brilliant or anything but he's hardly an outlier amongst this lot.

You could argue that Deschamps is managing his side well given the recent French success internationally.

Glad the Portuguesers went out. Too much rolling around and screaming for my liking.

Sorry that the Cloggies were knocked out. Does that help put into perspective some of England's 'dire' showings in the group matches?

It probably does to be honest. I've been guilty of being disappointed with England in the group phase, but as others have said it's all about getting the points on the board and into the knock-out phase which we have done, very well it must be said.

I am glad that the portugese went out - dirty side.  And I can't stand Bruno Fernandes, goes down if he is breathed on and then when the opposition go down he accuses them of diving and blubs like a baby to the ref.  So punchable..
