    Russia paying 2.30. Best odds of the tournament I'd say.
    I know a place where a royal flush
    Can never beat a pair

    That's insane. Unbeaten in something like 15 and coming off a 4-1 win.

    Think I tipped the draw tho. Make of that what you will...

    Yeah I mean, not a sure thing of course, but I was thinking about putting something up even if it was 1.50ish, you'd think Russia would be massive favourites. Just people valuing the home side factor I guess.

    Which does make a difference tbf. Very nearly one up from the point blank header, and the Russians could easily have been given a penalty in other circumstances.

    Lovely move, but young Roman was clearly off.

    Is it just me, or have there been loads of foul throws in this tournament which have gone unnoticed? I know players in the Premiership get quite a lot of leeway, but there have been several I've seen over the last few days (not just in this match) which have seemed to me to be a fairly blatant contravention of the rules. Not really a big deal I suppose, but still.

    Not exactly what you were referring to, but that should have a been a pen IMO

    Doubt it'll go up much, tbh. He's, what, 31? 12 months on his deal?

    Carragher is horrible to listen to. Should have an actor voicing him.
