    The fact that this game is close, and not a walkover for Croatia, is enough to make 538 bump up England's chance of winning aws.

    Croatia set up crazy deep when defending wide free kicks. England will be all over that.

    Got to feel that this favours France or Belgium. They already have a slight advantage in having a day longer to recover, but their likely opponents will also have played more minutes.

    So we're still allowing Subasic to jump out several feet then?

    Epic match. Also, best four teams in the semis. Glad about that as a neutral.

    To be fair the referee had a word with him today.

    Crap jokes from me aside, he was as bad as Kasper the other night.

    It’ll be the hill England fans die on if they lose to Croatia in a shootout.

    How good was Russia’s first goal today? Brilliant stuff.

    Really enjoyed that. Fun and admirable performance from Russia too.

    4 very enjoyable semifinalists, really. Rooting for Croatia to win it all because I love Modric but wouldn't mind England winning it either.

    Trivia - what's the only other instance of a side winning two shootouts in a world cup?

    Such a good game. Really enjoyed watching the back and forth and the chances. Both should have had 1 goal more each.

    As an aside, will never get how referees don't use more discretion for a taking off your jersey yellow card. It's a WC QF and he thought he scored the winning goal. Jersey taking off is such a natural reaction.

    It was kind of a meaningless yellow in the end, since cards are wiped for the semis. Maybe wouldn't have done it otherwise.
