      I think we can all agree that it's irrelevant who wins because either way football is coming home.

      BUT if the footballing gods are truly looking down on us, a bruising encounter which goes to extra time with the winning team limping home despite having had five players injured and two red cards would be very welcome.

      My money is firmly on France to win, but I'll be cheering on Belgium I think as they have less to scare us up front than France I'd say.

      I am watching this on a big screen in a French village tonight. I am an Allen Les Bleus fan tonight. I hope I am not one on Sunday too

      Let's just concentrate on our own semi-final tomorrow first please?

      Indeed, I'd like to see doctors saving the lives of the key members of the winning team, who will return home tomorrow as heroes.

      Completely the opposite, in my opinion. De Bruyne. Hazard and Lukaku are as good a front three as it gets in international football.

      I'll be watching in France. A France v England final would be brilliant.

      OP don't do agreeing. He could - and would - start an argument in an empty room just for the sake of it

      Really torn between who I want to win.
      Let's say we get to the final (of course we will, it's coming home of course) I keep thinking Belgium is the easier of the two, but then I start thinking about De Bruyne and Hazard and it scares the crap out of me. But I think France are a little pacier (?) And more of a threat up front so I really can't decide.

      For me I fear the pace of France more than I fear the talent of De Bruyne and Hazard. I think they are known quantities to us and our players will have played against them several times. The French attack is raw pace and more unknown, it scares me just thinking about it. But of course football is still coming home.
