That you say especially this year indicates how far off the mark you are, so I assume you're just trolling

Croatia motivated by England’s lack of respect, says Luka Modric

Quote:
Luka Modric has accused English journalists and pundits of showing a lack of respect to Croatia’s players and admitted his team-mates had used criticism to motivate them to victory over England in their World Cup semi-final....

“People were talking... English journalists, pundits from television,” he told ITV.

“They underestimated Croatia tonight and that was a huge mistake. All these words from them we take, we were reading and we were saying ‘ok, today we will see who will be tired’. They should be more humble and respect their opponents more.

Ah yes. That awful curse was broken. THREE STRAIGHT TIMES they lost a coinflip in the World Cup! Those poor poor fans. Surprising they found the strength to go on, really.

Oh wait. I have to count the 1-3 in Euros? Fine then. Look at the binomial distribution with 1 success in 7. Not statistically significantly different from 50-50, a complete tossup... and that's for a one-tail. (It should theoretically be two-tailed because there's no a priori reason to think England would be better or worse than anyone else, unless they have a tradition of terrible GK or something.)

Wait, hold on. I'm supposed to include youth teams too? Sheesh. No one would include youth teams except for confirmation bias, so no, I'm not going to look up their records in youth shootouts before 2017. They won one in the U-17 and won the whole damn tournament so this line of argument is just silly.

For anyone else but navel-gazing English fans, it would be "We started out a little unlucky in penalty shootouts at the WC but our luck seemed to turn around against Colombia."

LOL variance.

All - pumped for the final after our epic victory yesterday! All the debate here is whether we'll go for our standard home kit or the away kit to match the one we won when winning in '66 - I've heard as a compromise England will play in a mixed white and red shirt, with a checked pattern. Can't wait! #ItsComingHome

14 years later and I'm still gutted the Czechs didn't win that year. Such a great team.

Had totally forgot about this vid but just further proof that Deschamps GOAT, here's him and Thuram during haltime, having a little argument on postitionning, at 5:00 Deschamps telling him to play higher on possession or to tuck inside, just GOAT. Vid starts with Jacquet and a GOAT OAT speech.

In fact the origins of football are broadly contested. Many historians trace the origins of the game to versions of "la soule" - a medieval game originating in Normandy. So on the upside, there is still a lot of football coming home equity.

Yeah, without homer glasses on Czech Republic vs Netherlands that year is probably the best game at a big tournament that I've ever seen.
