Poland still haven't used a substitution. The Swiss have used all 3. Energy levels check.

Torn, because my stepfather is of Polish extraction, but was backing Sitzerland after the Shaqiri goal. In any case, great match. Perhaps the most satisfying one so far in the tournament along with the demented Portugal-Hungary game.

Good to see that Arsenal bought a man with shooting boots. That miss was hard!

Going out of Europe in the last 16, he will fit right in at Arsenal.

It's as bad a penalty as Rooney's attempt at a corner into the audience at the last WC was a corner kick. He must have thought the goal was in the direction of Ursa Major. But it wasn't. It was directly in front of him.

I hate penalty kicks. It is like you watched an entire 12 round boxing match, and at the end, they decided the winner by who could jump rope the fastest.

Farewell, valiant Swiss. You gave your all, but Polish underhandedness undid you.

You'll get over it in time. Amen.

 

In other news, the first minutes of Wales - NI have been desperately dull. Expect more from Bale.

Lady Pumpkin is after asking wtf is the story with Gareth Bale's man-bun hair? Personally, I never saw these until Keanu Reeves' 47 Ronin film.

To be fair, Northern Ireland are the best team Wales have faced so it might take time to work things out.

Ramsey, you bellend. Ne need whatsoever to go near that ball. It was clearly going in.

Looks like Wales are the Ramsey & Bale show. All the attack must come through them. Norn Iron will take what they can get on the break. It's getting interesting. 

Also, I love seeing rival fans mixed in a little. Standing besides each other and not punching on. Refreshing.
