Gutsy in PKs and England moves on. They were lucky. Have to be better in the later rounds, but a finals appearance is theirs for the taking.

England wins it. Very strange game. Sweden is next for them.

France up 2-0 with 10 left to play. Looking like the winner of France and Brazil (assuming they advance) will win it all.

Belgium has Brazil in a 2-0 hole in the first half.

Brazil was strong down the stretch, but not strong enough. Belgium & France are one semi.

Count me in as happy that Brazil is out. As the country with the most World Cup titles, I had not interest in seeing them win another. France vs Brazil probably would've been a great game, though.

Looking forward to seeing who comes out of the other side now. One thing is certain: this will be an all European semifinal.

So on paper Croatia should advance, right? However, sports teaches us to never discount the home team.

Correct. I'm tempted to root for Russia so England has an easier game

I will grant the Russians have a stirring national anthem.

Anyone else find the irony in the anti-discrimination weekend is in Russia with the Russians "participating?"

Pretty crappy game so far. Low level of play, lack of crispness. I'm guessing the reds are playing for PKs

What would you do with a Franco-Russian final?

What a staggering miss for Croatia (59th minute).
