So : one half each.

Now will Croatia's greater experience count or will fatigue get them ?

England have to take it to them and test those tired legs. I do think they have more goals in them ....

I'm imagining this water is actually scotch :)

Chances both ends in that fifteen minutes. How close that Stones header !

Still really could go either way ...I have a hunch it won't go to pens this time but couldn't say which way...

I guess we saw the real Croatia after half time. Deserved win.

Hard luck to England after doing better than expected, and lasted long enough to pick up goodwill from casual supporters (like me).
