    I'm addicted to N++ at the moment - ended up playing it for 3 hours last night having only intended to play a couple of levels. Another perfect fit for the Switch.

    Hate to say it but Southgate got it wrong second half. Croatia changed, we didn't respond. When they started dominating, we needed to shore up those wide areas or at least give them something different to worry about, maybe 4-5-1 with Sterling up top. He'd have been slaughtered for it taking Kane off if it went wrong so I can understand the hesitance, but the reality is we were on the backfoot from 35 mins onwards. It was always my worry that we had no Plan B and tonight showed that. We'd have been battered by France but it still pains me to see us lose a semi final that was absolutely there to be won.

    The ball was out of play when the contact was made. Not a penalty.

    Sterling was good last night. Made some excellent runs, was always making himself available as a passing option and was sharp in his link up play. He gets dispossessed a lot in the final third because he's a player who will actually take chances and run at defenders - sometimes it comes off, sometimes it doesn't. We struggled to maintain possession in the Colombia half as soon as he came off.

    I've followed you on the Peru-Aus draw with my last bit of profit left. I was this close to taking your pick yesterday and going for the Iran draw, but in the end went for the 'safer' option of Spain.

    Probably my worst call of the tournament so far. Might go Spain HT/FT to try and claw some back.

    Gone against my usual aversion to draws and backed one in Uruguay v Russia at 3.1. Tempted by Iran later if the odds improve (currently sitting at 6.8 on Betfair).

    I downloaded Stardew Valley the other week to give the gf something to do while I watch the football. Can't get her off it now! Don't think I've ever completely drained the battery playing it undocked but it's now an almost daily occurrence. Think I may have made a terrible mistake...

    How easy is this to get into for a total newcomer to the series? Is it also straightforward to team up with a friend online?

    I piled on Belgium -3 when it was 4-1. Streak had to come to an end somewhere.

    Going for the Swiss tonight at 3.05. The market seems to have Serbia as slight favourites, but I see it the other way given Switzerland's superior tournament experience and recent form. Draw was also tempting given how both sides set up, but where's the fun in rooting for that.

    I ended up cashing out at 1-0. But still, can't complain.

    Went for Croatia tonight at 4.0. This Argentina side look so poor.

    In profit for the first time this tournament now after a little Ronaldo first goalscorer / Portugal to win double. Plenty of football left to lose it all on though.
