England are gone: No surprises there. Brazil out: They never really caught on fire this tournament. Argentina bow out: The coach to blame here for silly substitutions. Ukraine go home: Lucky to be in the quarters in the first place.
It was a punishing weekend for watching football and the barman at the Red Lion Club must be getting sick of me. But thanks to the Red Lion Club I get to hear BBC or ITV commentary. One of the classics I heard during the Germany-Argentina match was "What Argentina have to do here is attack with the ball". Can't argue with that.
Having had my heart wrenched out and stamped on earlier in the week, it was the turn of all the English down at the club on Saturday evening. The Portuguese played their normal game of diving and acting while England again looked boring.
It was only after Beckham went off and Rooney was sent off did I think England played any decent footie. Of course it went down to penalties and, of course, England stuffed them up.
There were a few blokes at the club who were inconsolable, and quite possible ropeable as well. For an team that went into the tournament with high hopes of winning the cup, England played like rubbish.
After the match it was down to Kizilay to celebrate Battle-Hardened Kanka Damon's last few nights of freedom. Sir Eski Kanka and Genc Kanka Eddie certainly enjoyed the belly dancer but in some ways watching Brazil go down to France was even more fun.
What better way to spend an evening. Beer, football, belly dancer, more football and more beer. Shame England couldn't lift themselves though.
