I can see Sweden having a tight, tentative game against whomever wins this.

Columbia actually have played fairly well when they choose to actually play football. Which was only like the last 10 minutes unfortunately.

There's a joke here but obviously I would never lower myself to such things.

...........Holy shit, that save.

Football's flight home has been marginally delayed.

Vintage England tactics, "alright we scored, now let's defend the rest of the game". It was only a matter of time.

Defeat on penalties it is, then.

I dunno. Wouldn't put it beyond England's composure to utterly disintegrate before that.

In fairness, we attacked plenty of times. It's just that it mainly involved Sterling running into nowhere or Lingard falling down.

So rights lads, the narrative is that that free kick should have been 10 yards further back equals no shot so no save so no corner so no goal.

Well at least whoever it is who cares about ITV's ad revenue will be happy.

That bloke should have been sent off. Don't forget that.

The players all started lying much deeper though and the emphasis was no longer on attacking, which has literally been the undoing of England in a major tournament any time they've been eliminated.

I think England ought to walk away from the World Cup. They need us more than we need them.

      So the Woman's World Cup starts tomorrow, with hosts Canada facing China. Anyone else going to be watching?

      I'm supporting Sweden personally, them and Canada.

      We've got a month until the World Cup! So exciting!

      Anyway for some reason the BBC suddenly posted news about Japan's squad because Shunsuke Nakamura (the ex-Celtic player) has been recalled.
      However the best news is that Kawaguchi is back in the squad as third choice goalie! He's a total legend. A chirpy little Japanese shot stopping legend:


      My local team is Nagoya Grampus and we've got two players in the squad but one is Tulio who hasn't had the best couple of years.


      Is Jesus (Kennedy) in the Australian squad? He's Nagoya's big lanky striker who looks useless for 89 minutes and then bundles in a header in the last minute pretty much every game.

      Anyway, Japan are annoying me because their style at ANY kind of football is to try to dribble the ball into the net (a bit like Arsenal but less successful) instead of one person just deciding to let rip from around the box. If they actually shot from 16-25 yards from time to time they'd actually be pretty decent.

      We have an England thread, but not a general one, so here it is.

      Norn Iron are 1-0 down against Russia with around 25mins to play.

      Wales vs. Belgium is on Sky Sports later, and Holland-Turkey can be watched on ESPN.

      Fully expecting a comfortable Belgium win this evening. Can't see Wales handling them.

      Scotland play Serbia, and Rep Ire vs. Kazakhstan is currently goal-less.

      It may seem early but, bo-lieve it or not, the qualifying campaigns for certain AFC teams begin today. I'd completely forgotten about it, until I read this article on the BBC, explaining how a 'living God' was cheering on Bhutan in their opening game.

      The 12 lowest ranked sides contest a two legged play off to see who gets into Round 2.

      Some of the first leg games have already finished, including a shock win for Bhutan (the only team in the current FIFA World rankings to have zero points):

      Timor-Leste 4 - 1 Mongolia
      Cambodia 3 - 0 Macau
      Sri Lanka 0 - 1 Bhutan

      The games still to play/finish are:

      India - Nepal
      Yemen - Pakistan
      Chinese Taipei - Brunei Draussalam

      The second legs are due to be played on Tuesday next week.


      As for the other qualifying zones, CONCACAF begin later this month (23rd), and the CAF and CONMEBOL begin in October. UEFA are yet to reveal the date of their start. OFC are using the OFC Nations Cup next year as their qualification process.


      EDIT: We should so adopt a team in each zone as EWB's underdog team!
