Despite my Scottish blood I bet on Croatia.  Looks they are dominating the action but tied at the half.

Ah well, at least Scotland got a goal as well as a point out of this.  Better luck next quarter century.

Amazing bicycle kick goal by Columbia in the opening moments against Brazil.  Ok now for hockey and basketball.

so does this retrench into playing for scoreless draws on the road?

Switzerland and France is an instant classic.  Just underway in extra time.

The Swiss deserved to win.  Or at least France deserved to lose.  I mean who blows a 3-1 lead late in the game.

England could really use Vardy in this game.

Spain won the worst penalty shootout I've seen in a long while.

That Vargas kick was the worst I've seen since Baggio's sky ball in the '94 WC Final.  Poor guy.  Of course he got subbed in in the first few minutes but still.

Timely PK.  Belgium's back line was getting run through like (obscene content)

I really hate watching the Italians play. They manhandle, they dive, they intimidate the officials. Just awful.

I watched the last twenty minutes or so and lost count of the injuries. Brutal game.

England scores in extra time on one of the worst penalties I’ve ever seen called. And then shamefully parks the bus for the last 15 minutes.

In Copa America they went straight to penalty kicks.  Don't get that.

Went back and watched some of the match on replay.  Was surprised they didn’t overturn the penalty.  No problem with how England played the last 15 minutes. You play to win. Denmark looked like they were playing for penalty kicks before the Kane goal.  Their bus didn’t even seem like the engine was on.

And not even a consolation game for 3rd place.
