    So the semis are France v Belgium and England v Croatia.

    At least the hosts won't need to poison us now before the next match.

    Good result, saw the highlights.

    Came out from seeing Hamilton in Victoria, and walked up through the centre of town in the afternoon sun to get to Covent Garden for our dinner reservation.

    Lots of happy people wearing England tops and St George's flags, but also, London Pride was on ...




    ... and one of the big rainbow floats started blaring FOOTBALL'S COMING HOME, IT'S COMING HOME ... at full volume

    One of the more surreal moments in my life.

    Heh. Musicals not my thing at all but this was great. Partner absolutely loved it which is the main thing as it was her b'day treat

    Such talented people. Most impressive performances for me were Anjelica; stunning voice there, and Aaron Burr. George IIIrd was frickin hilarious.

    A couple of really great numbers.

    I can forgive a great deal but I'll never forgive these fuckers for ruining Dancing in September.

    Burr was an excellent antagonist George was haunting

    England lookin good. Pretty strong performance there despite odd moments of carelessness.

    I sniff a place in the final.

    Interesting.. the Croatians are kind of doing what I expected they would do: Slowly demolish the opponents.
    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.

    Aye England have pushed the self-destruct.

    Where they looked calm and in control before, they've gone completely to sleep now. Hopeless play.

    Well if you're going to say EU final, then I'm going to say Brexit.

    Love the way Croatia always keeps fighting until the very end. Honestly didn't dare hope for this outcome but now for the final I have no preferences--it'll be the best match of the best game in the world.

    Dammit, I was on call and missed the entire game.

    ... but, by the looks of it, so did England.

    Not even half an hour in and this game is already fucking fantastic. First time in a long time I'll be happy regardless of who wins

    Well France did not deserve to be 2-1 up. Against the run of play and Croatian dominance.

    But wow they're deserving victory now. 4-1
