The spuds’ glove butler (© ArsenalGent) Hugo Lloris predicted before the semi-finals began that a spud would win the World Cup.
On Tuesday Vertonghen, Alderweireld and Dembele were dumped out with the meaningless 3rd place play-off the only thing delaying their flights home.
Last night potential Golden Boot winner, H Kane and his fellow English spuds were dumped out by Croatia. whose stuffed peppers were too hot for the national team to handle.
It would appear that barring a hat trick in the Final from Griezmann or Mbappe, Kane will be that Golden boot winner and reveal himself as the obvious candidate to replace CR7 at Real Madrid. Cmon Madrid, you know you want to.
So, anyway, Hugo now remains as the only miscreant left who could kiss the World Cup trophy. So that means it’s Croatia for me in the Final. 🙂
Last night began with a bang, Trippier’s glorious free kick flattering to deceive, but ended with a whimper with the superior footballing side creating the majority of the relatively few chances created.
At least we can now go back to proper football, club football, rather than pretend we ever enjoyed following a team with Welbz riding the pine as our only representative. Cheering on Ashley Young, Dele Alli and Eric Dier has been so so difficult.
Good luck to VP and Eddie’s chequered boys on Sunday.
