England 2 Croatia 1
Just seconds remaining now...
It's coming home.
Mr. QofG's has been live texting the match to me from the pub!!
The last three minutes were quite tense even without watching
England into the semi-final of another major tournament.
I had my doubts about this competition but it's been far better than I thought it would be. Belgium should join England and probably Holland in the semis and they and final are going to be in Portugal .
semi of a qualifier for a major tournament
Got a really good felling about the team now and then next Euro 2020
I loved Southgate as a Palace player,thought this man is going places
the best England manager since Sir Robert William Robson.
In the same way that the FA Cup final is a qualifier for the UEFA Cup.
Well not Belgium, the best rated team were 2-0 up and got thumped 5-2 with Benfica's Seferovic getting a hat trick for the Swiss.
For those without access to evil Sky.
England's Quali Group (Group A, because we're the best):
As ever, should qualify from that, but with England there's never a guarantee.
That said, it's definitely coming home.
Because the final is at Wembley.
Good group that.
Portugal v Switzerland
Netherlands v England
Arguably the toughest draw; may not be the force they once were, but sounds like they're improving again.
I'd rather see an Netherlands v England competitive game than a game against Switzerland (dull), or Portugal (which would likely see a high chance of feigned injuries and rolling around on the floor)
Definitely no feigned injuries or rolling around on the floor with England v Netherlands.
They do seem to have binned off Ashley Young I suppose.
Sancho continues to add to his highlights reel.
