Deserved win for Sweden, the Swiss were surprisingly poor today

1958 all over again:

Brazil beat France in the semis, with 3 goals by Gabriel Jesus, then Gabriel Jesus scores twice in the final against Sweden. :D

Mark Lawrenson has had a NIGHTMARE on commentary :lol: more than usual. Get the man some Lemsip.

What was the point of the penalty/VAR nonsense at the end if he’s just going to blow the whistle as soon as it’s taken anyway?

Lawro is so hilariously inept and against anything new. He's like UKIP gained sentience and became a football pundit.

First QF since 1994. All we had to do was rid the team of any and all star players :) (and get Janne Andersson ofc)

2002 was agnoizingly close though... can still see Anders Svensson's pirouette followed by hitting the post against Senegal.

Imagine the scenes if Sweden won it with Zlatan watching at home. Would be incredible. Shame we're knocking them out really...

Sweden deserved to win imo, even though the goal was rubbish as expected. :)

Heja Sverige!

696 FIFA prediction points for Yours Truly. 1-0 Sweden win, Xhaka with the most passes, Swiss with the most balls lost, and the joker.

It's coming home, it's coming... the FIFA OTF Predictor League is coming home! :D

Because it was the wrong decision. Irrelevant how much time was left.

I'd be pretty pissed off if I had money riding on the game and the ref just shrugged his shoulders and stuck with a wrong decision.

It's the World Cup ffs not an Under 8s match. Play the game to it's conclusion rather than blow early for convenience.

Lost count the number of times he's moaned and complained about a correct decision reached through VAR. It's not even funny in a meme sense any more. Just so tiresome to listen to.

Though no Lawro next time please.

I think Sweden can do a similar job on Colombia in the next round.

Oh yeah, I understand that. It's just funny they went through 3-4 minutes of VAR for 3-4 seconds worth of play.

Alright, calm down. Touch a nerve or something did I?

I honestly think the Swedes could go all the way, they have the most Leicester appeal about them.

Well without a Vardy type who can actually put the ball in the net! Though it's true that nobody on this side of the draw looks a lock to beat them frankly. Imagine a Sweden v Russia semi final :D.

Yeah, it was amusing that he blew up seconds later tbf.

Still good to get the right outcome.

I completely understand why he did it, just funny to spend so much time checking it! Especially as I was cheering for Switzerland :(

You can tell Marcus Olsson plays for Derby County the way he bottled that 1v1 and instead got the bloke sent off at the end.

I can genuinely see that semi happening :D I don't think anyone on this side of the draw is actually winning it (I should clarify in saying all the way) but honestly can see any of the five in that final as you've got a pair of potential chokers, 'doped' up Russians on home soil, resilient Swedes and the unpredictable Colombians. I'd say I'd fancy the Swedes if they were to win in the QF and I'm sure they can.

I won't be looking forward to playing the Swedes if we go through tonight, even if there's worse draws to ask for.

It was his twin brother Martin Olsson who plays for Swansea. Marcus hasn't played for Sweden since 2012.

Well well, a little bit of criticism on the awful and lousy football your country plays immediately triggers you it seems. Ok, my apologies :)

I apologize. Had a few to many. England fully deserved their win tonight.
