Yay I'm still in - how did that happen? My team are rubbish but in the last 8!

Surely they can't beat Croatia as well?

Very open WC but difficult to see the eventual winner not coming from the top half of the draw.

Definitely.  The best four teams from the eight are in top half.

I definitely think that England has a decent chance of reaching the final over Sweden, Russia and Croatia.

If the injury time worked out just right we could nickname it "the Hundred Minutes War".

England are easily the highest seeds left in their half now Switzerland are out who were rated six after a series of wins against the likes of Accrington Stanley reserves...utter c%%tish rsnkings from FIFA based in Geneva, quelle surprise. Anyway the worst half in world cup history so any of the crap could make it to the final.

After losing to Russia, when bidding against them for the 2018 World Cup back in 2010, it'll be slightly ironic if we won it in their back yard..

England invented football, and the first International match was England vs Scotland. Why is FIFA based in Switzerland rather than England? Same for Scouts for that matter.

 

Why am I not surprised...

Piermarco Zen-Ruffinen, a specialist in sport law at Neuchâtel University, told swissinfo.ch that Switzerland is attractive for many reasons: its geographic location, highly qualified work force, political stability, neutrality, security, quality of life, plus an attractive tax regime and legal code.

“The Swiss law on associations is extremely simple and hugely flexible. Furthermore, the slowness of the legislative process offers a lot of legal security,” he said.

Chappelet explained that associations are not obliged to register with the state nor to publish their accounts. “When the civil code was drawn up in 1912, no-one imagined that there would ever be such huge associations. Fifa is in effect a holding which owns public limited companies, but its statutes are the same as those of a bridge club.”
