    Will the World Cup Final be a double 1789 Bastille Day Celebration for France? Or will Croatia be picking up their own copy of the 1815 Waterloo Surrender Papers?

    The main point is that we have clearly improved since Euro 2016 and can now move forward with this young team.
    I believe the best is yet to come with Gareth Southgate in charge.

    It's possible the Croatian team could fire a shot that will be heard around the world.

    My Thoughts for what they are worth.

    1. We did better than I expected
    2. Having said that we had an easier route through to the semi-finals than England teams in previous competitions.
    3. Whilst our stock rose teams like Germany, Spain and non qualifying teams like Italy and Holland fell.
    4. Apart from Belgium B team beating our B team Croatia were the first decent team we faced.
    5. We could have buried Croatia in the first half. Having not done so it was the Croatian experience that came through.
    6. Our team will improve with experience.
    7. It will be a long time before an England team gets a better chance to make the Finals.

    In 1990 we only won one of our group games and that was a struggle to beat Egypt 1-0. Our performances in the group were turgid at best and we managed 2 goals in 3 games. We beat Belgium - who were not the force they are now - in the 120th minute of the last 16 then beat Cameroon after extra time couresty of two penalties, one of which was very generous. Yet that 1990 side is supposedly better than the current mob.

    All 7 are spot on.

    You fail to mention that we also had Holland and Ireland as opposed to Tunisia and Panama. Even with the current teams the Dutch and Irish are far superior opposition to Panama and Tunisia.
