I work out that to get ahead of Switzerland we need a 2 goal win,.

There's lots of permutations but I work out that with a 2-0 win we'd only need one of the below to happen.

Group B - Belgium win against Finland which would mean that the 3rd team would only get 3 points.

Group C - Ukraine win would mean that the 3rd team would only get 3 points.

Group E  - Sweden win and a win for either team in the Slovakia v Spain game would mean that the 3rd team would achieve 3 points.

Group F - France win and a win for either team in the Germany v Hungary game would mean that the 3rd team would achieve 3 points.

I think all four of those scenarios are probably more likely than us beating Croatia by 2.

Hopefully Groups B and C pan out the way we want tomorrow then we'll know its a straight shoot out for the knockouts on Tuesday night.

Even if we win by 1 goal, we would need two of the groups third team to finish with 3 points.

I remember in Italia 90, we needed at least one result to go our way after the Brazil game.

Ireland and Netherlands played for a draw, they hardly attempted an attack after the 70th minute, and Uruguay scored in injury time.

The day before we played Brazil, Colombia scored in injury time against Germany to get a draw as well.

We do seem to have a special way of getting knocked out of tournaments.

Was more looking at it from the game at top level has gone.

Went for the ball missed it, foul and a yellow card.

A red for that is just showing further signs of why the game is fucked.

Non contact in 5 years.

Practically non contact already when you see some of the penalties that are given these days for people challenging for the ball and slightly brushing against an  opponent  just before they win it. 

If you don't win a ball completely cleanly you've got a pretty big chance of giving away a penalty and at least getting booked.
