Five Live interviewing blokes who are either getting married or are attending weddings on Saturday lol

Was once best man at wedding when England played Italy away and needed a point to qualify for a major tournament. Did a score check mid-speech. They are divorced now.

I got married on a Friday to avoid a clash between Reading vs Wolves 8)

Hate playing the Swedes, such an awkward side. As Graham Taylor said in 1992 after losing to them "they are a strong and physical side who favour an outdoor pursuit".

That said it is 100% coming home, I am in no doubt at all.

Also the weather really isn't going to help either team in this game. Temperatures in the 90s expected and England especially knackered after 120 minutes, penalties and rough house tactics on Tuesday.

Expect a slow dull, tedious struggle with little by the way of chances. So a bit like watching Reading then.

So, like most of the rest of the preWC punditry, I was expecting a half decent Germany at this stage and a somewhat inevitable shellacking.

Other than that, my pre-tournament prediction is 4 from 4. Trust the Germans to be unreliable. :roll:

This is going to go one of two ways.

1) Early goal settles nerves, Sweden have a hardworking, muscular but somewhat one dimensional attacking threat, so bar a late corner cleared off the line, that goal keeps England's nose ahead. It may end up two or three as the game opens up massively at the end.

2) 0-0 HT. 0-0 FT. 0-0 ET1 you get the picture. The football equivalent of trench warfare but thankfully absent the shithousery of the Colombians. Maybe that beast centreback of Sweden scores from a corner. But, yeah, tense, low on skill, high on effort.

Sebastian the Red Mother in law's afternoon garden party on Saturday for a significant birthday. I'm one of those weirdos who really likes his in laws, but this is beyond the pale. Considering a divorce.

Surely that's your fault for marrying into a family that doesn't understand football.

Meanwhile one of my Facebook friends has just posted: "Despite my best intentions, it seems I couldn’t have picked a worse weekend for the boys and hubby to go up to London and see School of Rock, just hope it all goes well and they have a great time, think I’ve really put my foot in it." Yes, you certainly have.

Would Rashford have done any better?

Why couldn’t Kane get on the end of one of those instead?
