Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Both teams had some luck in the game. With a good Referee Colombia would have lost at least two players for deliberate foul play in the first half hour.
Granted in the second half England was under some pressure but it was only until the very last second of injury time did Colombia score.
AS for the penalty shootout England looked calm except for Henderson who had had a poor game earlier on.
I don't believe that hitting the bar from a penalty is unlucky if you can't get the ball in the net is bad shot selection.
I agree that the goalkeeper made a fantastic save. Rashford took his penalty calmly without any sign of nerves as did Dier. So we were through.
I agree about Sweden being difficult but I just have a feeling that we will come through. No red lights or nudists for you and Dave....lol
