If you’re one of those people tired of hearing about the World Cup you have come to the wrong place. So move along.
Today sees the second semi-final between England and Croatia. The winner takes on France in the final on Sunday, while the loser gets to play Belgium on Saturday for third.
Personally I’ll be rooting for England all the way. Partially because I shutter to think of what might happen to the country if they lose and have to deal with a certain presidential visit on Friday. But also because I can’t get the Three Lions song out of my head (see below…and sorry about the ear worm).
I realize my support doesn’t come with quite the same fanfare as Justin Timberlake’s, but what I lack in star power I make up for in nervous pacing and erratic hand gestures. So, you’re welcome.
With that I’ll leave you to take care of any pre-game prep or superstitions. Whatever it takes for football to finally come home. Go England!
