    I have no idea what point you're trying to make. Maybe try using words ;).

    You can quote me whenever you want. Maybe I am right or wrong. Doesn't matter. It's my opinion.

    Two rather unimaginative teams playing largely direct long-ball tactics, but England clearly had the better individuals and a better team as well. Credit to Sweden though, especially for the tournament, they tried and executed their best given their limitations.

    Pickford was the 3rd keeper to make crucial saves in the QFs, wonder if that continues in the last one as well. Sterling is rather useless in this team, outside of his speed he offers almost nothing. Rashford should take his place.

    So you want Gudetti - Thelin?

    Then there is Nyman, Sebastian Andersson and Ishak.

    That photo looks like it's from the 90s. How old were you in the 90s?

    Here's a Swedish fan who was actually at today's game for you to console:

    But the whole point is that the better team on paper doesn't always win.

    Bah

    Crap, world cup is over now, but getting the the quarter finals with a population this small, it is always a good result. Won Under 21 Euro couple years ago and now a quarter final in the world cup, we are slowly getting back from the dark years...

    God no. All current options are horrible.

    Once Mrabti has made the move he might be in contention. And I hate to say this but I hope Isak can have a break-out year and actually become something for the national team

    Right. Why don't we wait another 2 or 3 hours to see what happens.

    I've never felt so comfortable watching England in a knockout game. Even when Sweden has those chances in the 2nd half.
