    That’s the spirit Pwr; a young team learning as it goes and getting incrementally better each time. Croatia will be a really difficult test.

    It’s been some great watching here in the UK on vacay. But the team is flawed, so they will need to be far better vs Croatia than vs Sweden or Colombia.

    Nice. People back home have been going crazy. I live in Toronto now but I'm flying home Friday if we win the semi's!

    Not sure I agree we are flawed but we will have to improve. For me Ali has to play like he did for Spurs 2 years ago, and Sterling needs to produce something, anything. If this happens I think we're good. I just don't want to play France if we make it.

    IMO Maguire and Trippier have been outstanding in this tournament. Both making a real name for themselves.

    Well that hurt.

    Failure to pad the lead early when given a handful of grade -A chances. Did the same vs Colombia and Sweden. But this time all the failed finishing cost them dearly.

    Came unraveled after the equalizer — had a sense it was game over right there.

    Agree though; Maguire and Trippier were outstanding this tournament.

    Back to work.

    Better team for first 15-20minutes and looked comfortable. Then decided to try and win 1-0 and sat back for the remainder. Can't win in international football doing that, especially as we can't defend as well as the likes of France.

    Croatia took over the game at the 20 minute mark and their midfield was a beast in the 2nd half. Sets up for an interesting final but I think France takes it

    Couldn't sell soccer to the American people back in the day. Now it's the best thing since sliced bread. Who woulda thunk? Personally, I don't follow the game even though - much like lacrosse - it bears a strong resemblance to hockey in some ways.

    Go Rangers!!
