Good day fine people, and welcome to the Gillette Boot Room for Day 8 of the 2014 World Cup!
Ed, Ronaldo, welcome back!
Rugger, good to see you back! Cheers for returning Ed - predictions, people?
Ed, that sounds about right. I'm backing England by 2-1, possibly 3-1... Gerrard pen and Sturridge, to be precise.
bill, I'd be surprised if he played the whole game, but even a half-0fit Suarez is a worry for the likes of Glen Johnson.
Hands up who enjoyed yesterday? World Cup holders Spain were unceremoniously dumped out of the competition after a shock 2-0 defeat to Chile, while Australia - valiantly beaten 3-2 by the Netherlands in the early kick-off - are also on their way home.
Cameroon, meanwhile, exited the tournament in embarrassing fashion after losing 4-0 to Croatia, while Assou-Ekotto went toe-to-toe with Benjamin Moukandjo and appeared to headbutt him.
Cheers Rugger, duly noted!
We're developing quite a fine glossary, aren't we!
Jarvis, perhaps 3-3 is more within the realms of possibility, but I can;t fault you for enthusiasm.
Drew, it certainly was - no need for it at all!
nomalcatt, good to have you back.
Good call Tester - or an Akinfeev...
