2018 UEFA world cup - Eng vs Cro

The Romans successfully invaded England in about the year 50 BC. The settlement of Londinium was established around a hundred years later.



Some of the place names eg Aldgate, Bishopsgate survive to this day.

~2000 years later a child was born in a far suburb of Londinium, a place called Walthamstow. And that child's name was Harry Kane.

His immense talent was immediately obvious to all,



















Spoiler:


then this happened



And the rest is history.

Why is this relevant? Well, Sir Harry is about to lead England to their first world cup final since the heroic and brave victory over Germany in 1966, and there's not a damn thing Modric or any of them people can do about it.

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let pry through the portage of the head
Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
As fearfully as doth a galled rock
O'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill'd with the wild and wasteful ocean.
Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,
Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
To his full height. On, on, you noblest English.
Whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof!
Fathers that, like so many Alexanders,
Have in these parts from morn till even fought
And sheathed their swords for lack of argument:
Dishonour not your mothers; now attest
That those whom you call'd fathers did beget you.
Be copy now to men of grosser blood,
And teach them how to war. And you, good yeoman,
Whose limbs were made in England, show us here
The mettle of your pasture; let us swear
That you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;
For there is none of you so mean and base,
That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry 'God for Harry, England, and Saint George!'

At least 3 players on Croatia would be the best English players of all time, so not seeing much of a problem here for them.

Rooting for England this time

England v France would be quite the storyline. Rooting for England v Belgium

If boids was really confident about it coming home he'd have saved the Shakespeare for the final.

Itís coming home is the story of the World Cup. The England-France sub-story would be LOL FRANCE but itís irrelevant as Belgium will win the #realfinal and advance to the 1st place playoff for the coming home of itís.

There's more French than Ingerlundians in the EPL all time starting XI, says a lot about how imbalanced that final would be

Also not sure which all time XI you’re referring to, but still fail to see it’s relevance.

Yeah France would be favoured, but not more than about 1.5
