    They have beaten Tunisia, Panama, Colombia and Sweden. Croatia have beaten Argentina, Iceland, Nigeria, Denmark and Russia. Looking at it that way why do they seem so confident. All 5 teams Croatia have beaten are arguably much better than the 4 teams England have beaten. Football doesn't work like that though but it's still something to consider.

    Croatia at the start of the tournament looked fantastic & I said then they'd go far.

    Against Denmark & Russia though they've looked decidedly average.

    It'll still be a difficult one, but I'm predicting a scrappy 1-0 courtesy of another Harry Maguire header.

    For reasons I can't divulge now because of @adz-a32 copying my work I think the team sheets will have a big say tonight. I will be interested to see how both set up. I can't see England changing but one way Croatia play is much better than the other so the line up should tell us a lot. I expect a good game as it goes.

    The most important thing to consider is that it’s looking like a three horse race for the world pickem title.

    Good luck @TH63 and @adz-a32 and everyone else in the pack. It's been a good competition.

    Could that be more to do with the opposition they had? Looking average I mean.

    220° in a fan assisted oven for the 1st half. Cooking nicely.

    The element popped at half time, and we cooked no more from then.

    Yep think it showed in the end. Still a good tournament for England to get interest back in their national team. I applaud them for that.
