    It’s funny. The World Cup as ever is broadcast by both BBC and ITV in the U.K.
    ITV unlike BBC have commercials and Volkswagen are the sponsors of their coverage.

    So every game there’s the little VW advert, which focuses on a character who is a stereotypical overconfident England fan. And obviously the joke is we’re all laughing at his overconfidence.

    In one advert he’s driving his daughter to school in his Volkswagen and she says ‘My teacher says England will only reach the Quarter Finals if their lucky, and he used to play semi pro.’
    ‘Yeah, well he only semi knows what he’s talking about then, doesn’t he?’ Is his reply.

    Looks like the joke’s on us!

    Sorry Englanders. It was a valiant effort and you should look forward to Euro 2020 when this squad has 2 more years experience.

    Somehow, England looked like the side that played two extra time matches.

    Just took one moment for the England dream to die, I bet Stones is kicking himself still. That being said, nothing to be ashamed of. Now, lets hope Croatia crushes france.

    One thing for sure, the rest of the U.K. no longer have to listen to that " footballs coming home chant" for at least another 4 years..

    I know that hurts. This was an amazing opportunity for England to get this done.
