    Yeah ran home from the ER which is uncharacteristically empty of patients I generally don't like Swedish football but this is actually an enjoyable game so far

    This game is turning into a fight.

    A girly football fight, but a fight nonetheless.

    I am of course hoping for an English victory due to The Curse even though Swe-Eng is typically quite boring for about 80 mins.

    Of course England should win this, but that goal in overtime was funny.
    Greece shows us that there is a kind of politician worse than the ones that break their election promises; the ones that keep their election promises.

    England are quite good at the old self-destruct. Start strongly then faff around being pants.

    They've even got the ref on their side, with some of the most bias I've seen in a ref, blowing the whistle as soon as a Colombian player comes within 3 feet of Harry Kane.

    Still England are the better side and deserve the win. Getting it is another matter.

    Hah! England vs Sweden, Saturday afternoon... I'm in a matinée performance of Hamilton for my other half's birthday with a reservation at Balthazar afterward ... organised it all months ago.

    Will miss the whole match

    If it's any consolation there'll probably be better singing, dancing and acting at your thing

    That qualifier against Colombia was unnecessarily stressful but good to finally win a World Cup Penalty Shootout. Sweden v England will be a good game.

    They're going to have to rename this to the European Cup.

    The weather feels like there's going to be a thunderstorm and the streets are completely empty, but, in town:





    The Swedish right-field continues to disappoint and I think Olsen's a little rattled. We're really hurting from the lack of precision but I'm glad to see Swedish players using both sides of the field

    This match somehow slipped my mind. I see things aren't going well or Sweden .

    One thing at a time at this stage I'll be happy just to make the finals.

    The Russia - Croatia game is excellent but that Russian goal at 115 mins was a real kick in the balls. Both sides are giving everything and the Croatian goalkeeper is a goddamn hero but if this goes to penalties...
