France v Argentina was a cracking game but both weak at the back. Uruguay look very strong.....yes

Spain out, come on England!

Ramos was given as good as he was getting in the penalty shout - correctly not given.

Well another tense one, pleased Modric got another chance to score from spot...awful way to go out though.

I just can't watch penalty shoot-outs where I have an interest in the team involved.

Rather than the lottery of penalties, why not allow the managers to select 11 fit players (assuming no red cards) from those who have taken part in the match or unused substitutes and play until a golden goal is scored - with the twist that each time the ball goes dead (foul, throw in, goal kick, corner etc.) the player adjudged responsible leaves the field of play. With diminishing numbers on the pitch, the deciding goal should be scored relatively quickly with the result coming from genuine football.

TV would go mad...shoots outs are cruel, but great drama.

Another option would be to play with two balls on the pitch. Could make for an entertaining tie break.

Belgium, manager is the weak link...why was General DeGaulle in Belgiums goal ?

Yeah, shame for hard working Japan. I felt Belgium were very lucky afte Lukaku wasted several chances. A team of talented players the sum of which is less than the parts. Still, at least Brazil or Belgium will be out on Friday.

Neymar is a blot on an otherwise excellent World Cup.

Come on England !!

Booked my seat in front of the TV for tonight. Ordered a light evening meal of mixed sandwiches, fruit etc. that I can have whilst watching.

My wife is very worried, you see I don't "do football" and I don't watch television. I can see her contemplating the phrase "Who are you and what have you done to my husband?"

I've told her its OK, I'll be fine again soon,...well hopefully not too soon. Actually I blamed you lot! LOL!

Never mind the world cup and golden boot, what about Oscars and diving medals?

Some of the players antics are disgusting.

Indeed, although Neymar would get a clean sweep.

Well the Swedes don't look like world beaters, Colombia/England must be licking their lips at prospect of playing them for a place in the semis.

England v Colombia ? be funny if it went to penalties with Gareths history, don't be ordering pizza during the game. kulou

Big performance from Deli/Lingard I hope, assuming Deli plays.

C'mon the lads.

Well the girls say they are going to join me and so the whole BEB household will be there cheering them on - that's bound to make a difference isn't it!

PS Columbians make very good coffee - I don't know about footballers though? Maybe they do?
