And the winners of the 2018 World Cup Final

France... 4-2

Congratulations France, great game, Croatia battled hard and played very well in parts but the best team won the tournament...

Right, that's it for another 4 years, best World Cup in a long time..

Only 2 years to wait till the European Cup tho ;)

Thanks KC.. It is disappointing for sure to get that close to a World Cup final but not quite make it..But our young team had so exceeded all expectations that there's a lot of positives to take away from this tournament..

A new manager who seems to have the knack of putting the right players together and a team maybe lacking superstars but
a team all pulling together and playing for each other in a way we havnt seen in a long time..

Now it's time for the final.  (tomorrow) France v Croatia.
Croatia definitely the underdogs with France firm favourites. Could be interesting..

And England are........ Out

Croatia 2-1 England

Tough game but Croatia deserved winners... Experience won out in the end but no shame on England who've had a fantastic tournament and who's young team promise much for the future..

World Cup Final

Croatia v France

Thanks KC.... :)  You have Swedish ancestry ?

France v Belgium tonight. Both teams very strong (obviously, to have reached the semi final stage)
I've no idea who'll win.. Potentially a very exciting game..

I'm sure they were.. Unfortunately for Sweden they came up against an England side on the ascendancy. We blew em away 2-0 last night.. I was in London last night and the buzz on the streets was incredible.

So England March on into the semi finals this Wednesday against Croatia who knocked out host nation Russia last night.
The other semi will be between France and Belgium... Both teams on fire right now..

Thanks for indulging me... This has been a brilliant World Cup so far, one of the best that I can recall...
England have been very poor for many years now... We won it in 1966 but last got this far in '90 I think .. The last couple of decades have been fairly atrocious.. Our manager was sacked last year and his second in command put in charge temporarily  (Gareth Southgate) He's still running it and his young team have done exceptionally well to get this far. Very proud of all of them..

One more game and we're in the final... Dare we hope...

Now that was super tense....
England beat Columbia on penalty shoot out...

If the Columbian team had focused more on their football rather than cheating tactics they might have done better..

Come on England !!! Next game Saturday, quarter finals against Sweden...

My new Spanish friend is apparently hooked after watching Tightrope and has asked for a second recommendation.
I know she's a big fan of 1970's cinema... I'm tempted to put Thunderbolt and Lightfoot forward..

I saw Lucy on a plane and remember enjoying it, tho I may have been suffering from that thing when flying  (forgotten the name)
Where your senses and emotions are heightened and films can affect you more..

Day of the Dead is great also...

Shock !!! Argentina knocked out by France  (hooray!! My Grandparents were French so I'm allowed to say that ;) )

and Portugal knocked out by Uruguay . So France and Uruguay progress through to next round...

In roughly one hours  time hosts Russia face one of the tournaments favourites... Spain..
