    Still bitter from their loss, they dressed up as Russian fans to support USSR against Germany in the next round, then tried to take all of the credit when Russia won.

    I would love to see another semi-final similar to Brazil-Germany at the last World Cup. Obviously it won't happen on that scale again, but France do look incredibly loose at the back.

    Shame Germany have one goalscorer and he's never scored a Euro goal.

    That Germany lineup doesn't look like it works to me. Is it Ozil on the wing and a midfield 3?

    Yeah. You can stick Özil anywhere because he's so good at finding space.

    Deschamps ought to be drugs tested, has to have been smoking some weapons grade **** to have picked that team and lineup.

    Crazy to think Kante didn't start in this game.

    I'm not sure on what planet Sissoko is better than Kante and they've completely surrendered the midfield as a result.

    Not impressed with that sub.

    And that there is why Neuer isn't the best keeper in the world.

    Didn't see the match tonight. The stats and reports make it appear as though Germany had all the possession but created little in the final third. Apparently this was Germany's 4th semi-final defeat in 10 years. England have only managed four semis in 86 years.

    As well as the 4 defeats they've also won 2 in that time.

    Remember when people said France's defence was rubbish?

    Was a good game. It really turned on that idiotic hand ball by Schwienstiger. They created very little in the 2nd half until the last 10 mins. Neuer massively at fault for the 2nd goal.

    I haven't seen yesterday's game yet, but to be fair saying that France looked vulnerable in defence was an accurate statement at the time.
