Well thank goodness England are out. The "British"* media was getting unbearable.

France v Croatia in the final. Croatia the smallest nation to make the final since 1930. France obviously huge favourites but I actually anticipate a decent game that could go either way.


*the British media tend to forget there's 3 other countries other than England have to watch their TV feeds or listen to their radio shows or read their newspapers so go into overkill on English bias, which tends to drive opposition to England in the other regions. Which is a shame cos for the first time in a while England have a likeable manager and decent players. But that media bias completely puts you against them

Sounds like the Leafs.

Of course the British media is going to have a slant towards England. 85% of the UK's population are in England. Maybe if the rest of the UK could put a team together that could qualify for the World Cup once in a while, they might get some coverage.

I doubt English fans care who the rest of the UK cheers for anyways.

I don't know which is more impressive - iceland qualifying with a 350K population, or Croatia making the final with a 4M population.
