The commentators were going back as far as the '50s for a defeat as bad- I can think of a more recent one- losing 4-1 to Germany at the last 16 on WC 2010.
But dude, come on ... Iceland are a good side but not Germany good! :P

The England fans and team are wearing expressions like Loki's right at 0:38: puny team.

Honestly I'm glad England got knocked out before our Hooligan fans got us disqualified. That would have been more embarrassing.

By the way, the Roy press conference today is so fucking hilarious; https://www.facebook.com/EnglandTeam/vi ... 199827447/

Yep. Hoping for Wales to win. :)

The coolest final would be Iceland vs Wales, which is theoretically on the cards, but I'm afraid Iceland won't get past the winner of Italy vs Germany even if they beat France.

YES! :D

Don't know why, but I've never really liked Belgium in football tournaments. There is absolutely no logical reason for it, but somehow that team just rubs me the wrong way. This time they were the favorites to go forward, so the underdog coming out on top is even better.

I'd love to see Iceland-Wales in the finals.

Just for the slight chance of English football fans spontaneusly igniting while trying to figure out whom to cheer for... :D

Also - these teams really got a fight in them... Would be fun to watch.
A minute's thought suggests that the very idea of this is stupid. A more detailed examination raises the possibility that it might be an answer to the question "how could the Germans win the war after the US gets involved?" - Captain Seafort, in a thread proposing a 1942 'D-Day' in Quiberon Bay

what a game so far. Excellent stuff, with Italy and Gemany being pretty even. Also, a very fair game.

God, don't tell me we'll end up with yet another penalty shootout.
It has become clear to me in the previous days that any attempts at reconciliation and explanation with the community here has failed. I have tried my best. I really have. I pored my heart out trying. But it was all for nothing.

You win. There, I have said it.

Now there is only one thing left to do. Let us see if I can sum up the strength needed to end things once and for all.

We are, Thanas, but the fact of the matter is that I have a stronger emotional attachment to Italy than to Germany. If I had been to Germany over 20 times, it might be different.

Though in this case while my preference was for Italy, I have absolutely nothing against Germany and they deserved the win. :)

Regardless of today's outcome, Iceland is still my favorite in this half of the elimination rounds. If they win against France, I will be required by the Nordic Conspiracy to support them over Germany. If Iceland falls to France, then Germany will be my favorite.
