What an amazing game; France versus England. Beckham missing a penalty kick, Zidane delivers two killer blows in the dying minutes of the match.
The dejected faces of the English supporters told the whole story. Most were just sitting there well after the game like stunned mullets, looking lost and wondering what had happened. France: 2 - England: 1. Expressions of the English football supports after the game = PRICELESS
While you could also feel for the England team and their supporters for the loss, I just thought that the whole situation was very comical and you just had to laugh it off. I mean, the English supporters were overly confident that the game was theirs and truly over with five minutes to go as they sang their hearts out with their rendition of 'God Save the Queen'. Then there were shots of the French supporters with their heads hanging in extreme disappointment in anticipation of defeat. Now if the match had ended on that note in the 88th minute it would have capped an amazing strategic victory for England but as things developed towards the added stoppage time you just had to laugh at the turn of events to make sense of the situation. It was dramatic, it was devastating, it was thrilling, it was emotional, it was a great game of football.
Lesson to be learnt from that game: Do not sing your victory song until the 'Fat Lady' sings hers first.
I wouldnt say we was over confident, England just has so much passion for football its unbelieveable. I can't find nothing comical about it at all, never felt so gutted before. We can still do it though, I hope we have France in the final, it should of been 1-0.
Im not sure if Terry should be played, good player but King did a smashing job.
Rooney, Keep it up son. He has got passion and strength.
Hmmm, all the ManYoo fans were saying, "now we know how Bayern fans felt in '99". Not quite the same though, Bayern lost the final, England can still progress provided they don't go completely tits up and beat the Swiss and the Croats, which they should. But who knows, especially with that useless waste of space Heskey playing...
It looks like the games are on PPV for $19.95 a pop, $25 for the quarter-finals and up, or $180 for the whole thing. I have a German friend who is desperately trying to look for a bar that is playing the games here in Philly, especially today's game, but he isn't having any luck. I didn't see this thread last night, when I posted this one about my buddy. I feel bad for him now, he got off the phone with some family that is still over there, and it sounds like they were all partying getting ready to watch the game.
