And there was much rejoicing.

Apparently: "Dolazi kući" means "It's coming home" in Croatian. Yeah, woteva

fark, what a match. Croatia deserve this. They were the better team in the second half (though they were helped by the refs). I hope they beat France on Sunday.

Football's going home empty-handed apparently.

One thing I love about this World Cup is that no every game I have felt the better team won and even as a long suffering England fan in my three lions shirt at the pub I can't really be upset by the result. Croatia and France have been the two best teams in the tournament and deserve to be in the final. It would have been Awsome if the kids won buthave to admit once again the best team won.

Can't wait for the finals.

England looked beat for 3 quarters of the game.  Probably because they were getting beaten up for most of that time.  I'm wondering if the whole team had the flu.

Croatia looked strong though.  If they play that way vs France it will all come down to officiating; The French players were laying on the field half the game but getting lots of calls going their way for doing so.

Couldn't have happened to a more deserving country.

The World Cup isn't quite over for England; there's still the third-place match with Belgium.

Not to mention the English exceeded even most English fans' expectations. The Fark headlines about fans making good on bets to get themselves tattooed will attest to that.

Still. Goddamn.

One more reason I'm supporting Croatia in the final.

Nice to see the finals pair up two teams with a total of one World Cup win. Given the AET, one less day of rest, and the fact that France is probably just a bit better, I'll take France to win it all. But I'll be pulling for Croatia.

oryx: Same old England


England haven't made the semis since 1990 and haven't made the final since 1966. Hardly the "same old England."

It will take a lot more centuries of this sort of thing to begin to pay England back for the aCromwell asshole and for the famine.  fark England.

Yeah, it wasn't like you lost to Brazil because Neymar's acting drew a penalty kick that led to the winning goal.   Croatia's a scrappy team, and a good story.  And it's good to see new people there.

I will say this right now... until that STUPID song is wiped from collective existence, every mp3, CD, vinyl record, etc... is wiped out, and the group who made that atrocious song are dead and buried, England will NOT win another World Cup.

The curse is REAL.

I remember that game. It was aggravating. I don't recall being quite that angry afterwards, though.

As if Hamilton needs another reason to whine, a week from Sunday.

Looking forward to it!

Well bless your heart.

Maybe you could leave America as the first part of reparations for the brutal repression and murder of the Native Americans.

the song wasn't even written to be a World Cup song. It was done for Euro 96, and the coming home part refers to the fact the tournament was held in England as much as it does an England win 'bringing it home'.

But these things tend to stick. Kind of like how everyone plays the flipping 'fairytale of New York" every Christmas now.
