Glad we won, but yes, wasn't very entertaining.

Would've put my house on Muller scoring that chance. Unbelievable miss.

The evening game was dull as fuck too. Ukraine going to be knackered when they play us.

Roll on 5pm. As much as I've enjoyed the tennis and cricket last two days, nothing beats the footy. Cool

Predictions for the next round of winners: Switzerland , Belgium , Czech, England

A Belgium England final would be decent. The third place WC 2018 game that never was.

Can’t feel too sorry for them when they do stupid stutters and run ups. I’d be fuckin fuming if I was their manager and any player did that shit

Not a fan of Italy's playacting but they deserved the win anyway. Belgium are powder-puff. Only one that really tried was Doku who is one for the future.

I got 10/1 for Italy before the start of it. They were slightly longer odds before that as well.

Yeah they were 12/1 most places, unfortunately I didn’t stick them on in that time and only get 17/2 for them. Hope they do it

played well but was dreadful to see them falling over an running the clock down last night, absolute piss take - hope they lose against ESP but if we get to the final we're in for a shocker either way!

What do you expect, its Italy and now with Italy v Spain they'll both be at it, they are both the masters at that kind of stuff

Honestly, this is just Laughing out loud

What I saw is fantastic first half, dominated by a team with no superstars, playing as a team, with an attacking style and possession based football, basically what everyone expected Belgium golden generation to show the whole Europe. A match virtually closed after 45' only stupidly reopened with a penalty, generously awarded. A good start of the second half, a pretty obvious tough last 20' where the team showed that we can still defend as good as in the past. And if wasting a bit of time here and there helps win a tough game against one of the best teams in the world, well why not? It's definitely not there that Belgium lost the game…
