Atmosphere sounds great after that equaliser. Now let's see who's got the Hitch-sized heart.

Now I've been out of the interview game for some time now but surely this is highly unusual?
Any UK financial services firm with an Irish operation will generally do a background check and require this sort of info. Iíve had to provide my address for the past 5 years on previous occasions. Iím not sure if itís a requirement for all Irish financial services firms but if you are being passed by a fitness and probity test for the CBI it may well be required.

Ha! Certainly not the last time I checked.

I've also been a supplier to this company for 7 years now... I'm definitely not a stranger.

If England donít win tonight Roy is going to be epic on ITV. Said at half time that the players will never forgive themselves if they donít win...

England all over the shop.

France will stroll the final against whoever stays upright here. Does seem somewhat unfair to have that extra 24hrs of rest\preparation\recovery - especially if this goes to ET?

This must be having a mindboggling impact on the Croat population. Their tiny little country in with a chance to get to the final. Yet haven't seen a single article on that, but a million on how England 'need' this.

Should be a lump job @ 4/6 after this match is over. But then I remember 2016 in Paris, against a Ronaldo-less Portugal.....shudders....

Jaysis, England played for 45 mins of 120.

Croatia were blessed to get to half time only 1 down, England blessed to make it to 90 after only being 1 up!
