It sucks for Croatia, but rules are rules. He's gone for the ball, just messed it up badly.

Sorry, but the issue is Modric, he has to score and he's taken a shit penalty. He scores and nobody complains about injustice.

Having seen it a few times over I think he knew exactly what he was doing. Cynical as fuck but were it Sweden I'd applaud it. Going through someone's ankles isn't a genuine attempt.

Nah. I've watched it at least 5 times. He was going for the ball and fucked up. He has no option but he didn't set out to foul him, he didn't have enough time to even consider that for me.

Oh dear. KS has to pull one out again.

The players have let him down.

Unlucky Denmark, they just didn’t have the firepower to punish a below-par Hrvatska.

How is it possible to play as well in between the sticks as KS was there are lose? Fucking players seriously let him down in that shoot out, he couldn't do any more.

Feels like justice for that ET penalty decision. They should have won it there and then.

One of the worst shootouts I've ever seen, just loads of dreadful penalties.

Croatia scraped through and it'll be interesting to see how they get on against Russia. Need to be far better than they were today.

Not really. They had a chance to score the penalty and didn't.
Yeah, and because of something not allowed (fouling from behind) they went from a tap in to a penalty.

Cynical or not Croatia deserved this. Plus it hopefully makes some of the more optimistic English fans on here shut up about the final.

They'll beat Russia I reckon, it's not a very good side. Spain let them through.

Croatia were extremely fortunate to get through, very unconvincing.

Pretty poor game, thought Croatia edged it and would have won it only for one of the most cynical tackles you'll ever see. A pure Suarez vs Ghana moment. I haven't been that impressed by Croatia overall though, they scraped past this side and were most impressive against a very poor Argentina side. People are jumping to conclusions about France based on the Argies too. No stand out teams on either side of the draw, it's wonderful.

We'll batter the fuck out of Croatia on our way to glory.
Will you be going down to London for the open top parade mate?

Good to have you back on fire after your Serbia "Adoption" disaster, G.B :lol:

What a shite penalty shootout. Reminds me of Italy vs Germany in the Euro 2016 quarter-finals where we were so nervous that we would bottle it against the Italians (as always).

Anyway, great effort from both goalies (or shite efforts from most players). Phew, Modric. His 2nd attempt wasn't much better than the first one in the extra time but that's the Real player luck ;)

G.B, best m8, I've got a question that I can only trust a man of your character to answer thoughtfully.

Why is Bilo being such a c-word about England and focussing all of his attention on us when his beloved Sweden are still in the competition, m8?


Can you answer me that one, my dear m8?

Think Denmark put a good shift in, Croatia well under par and can consider themselves lucky tonight. They will need to improve drastically to cause problems for pretty much any other team left in the competition.

Not one that will last in the memory tbh. Quite an even game, thought Croatia were better first half, with Denmark taking most of the 2nd half until Kovacic came on.

Couldn't believe Modric missed that first penalty - I was with Croatians and as soon as he stepped up they started moaning saying he can't handle the pressure in penalties. Tbf they weren't wrong.

2 excellent goal keepers in penalties though - that was awesome to watch. Both players let their keepers down tbh.

Denmark look a tidy outfit, exceptionally fit & hard working - I don't think either team really deserved to lose.

People saying they haven't rate Croatia, I agree, but I haven't really rated anyone so far - so it's anyones game

I’ve written like six posts worthy of Lucas Leica re our matches. But there’s not many to discuss with on here, contrary to England.

Why are you focusing on me when it’s sunny outside?

Because you are a cloud of negativity that throws shade upon even the brightest day.

You Swedish sphincter.

Plus, I was asking G.B a question - so, if you don't mind...

Hello top good mate Steven mate. I hope you are well.

As I understood it, we honourable gentlemen had an alliance with Beelo mate and his gang of blondes (real men do not have blonde hair btw). As you know, the alliance was formed shortly after 10 man Germany ANNIHILATED and HUMILIATED his country. The alliance was formed out of pity but it was an alliance nonetheless, and that means something to those of us with honour and dignity. Beelo was vulnerable and we, his top good mates, were there in his time of need, like the top good mates we are. However, much like with his club side, his unbelievable arrogance and lack of character has shown once more. He has stabbed us in the back and is of the utterly hilarious opinion that recent events indicate it is no longer coming home, whether that is because he believes a bunch of blonde "men" can stop our brave lions or that Croatia are somehow on our level. Either way, he joins Salty mate as an enemy of the crown because the god damn bish has no honour.


Just remember Steven mate, we did nothing to provoke him. Quite the opposite. We can stand tall knowing we were there for our good mate Beelo mate. We did the right thing, the honourable thing, throughout. But all wars come to an end. And when the dust settles. After Sergio Ramos is blamed for Sweden's abrupt exit from the tournament. After the mighty (and honourable) Ingurlund are inevitably crowned world champions. We will once again be there for our good mate Beelo mate, because we are top good mates and that is what we do. Mate.
