1 With Croatia currently a candidate for accessession to the European Union, the UK vote could go either way.
2 The winning goal may make you the toast of Zagreb, but you can kiss that lucrative Premier League deal with Middlesbrough goodbye.

3 Top the group and you could well join the list of seeds - thus ruling out guaranteed Euro 2008 group-stage wins over Austria or Switzerland.

4 Defeat may cost Steve McClaren his job, thus denying his tactical innovation and boisterous pre-match routines a wider audience.




5 A highly-motivated English side hellbent on avenging the nation's defeat (Bolton, perhaps) could face Dinamo Zagreb in the Uefa Cup knock-out stages and scrape a 0-0 draw in the first leg.
6 Loud, angry, sunburned English tourists may boycott the popular resorts of the Adriatic.

7 Bang go Slaven Bilic's hopes of the Birmingham job.

8 Future three-part television dramas such as the BBC's Casanova, filmed partly in Dubrovnik, could be relocated to Kosovo.

9 The Moreska dancers of Korluka - kindred spirits of Morris dancers - may not be as welcome in England's picturesque villages as they were on their 1966 and 1980 visits.

10 Goran Ivanisevic would no longer be the darling of the senior tennis events at the Royal Albert Hall.

11 London's top designers - furious at England's defeat - will stay away from Zagreb Fashion Week, thus marginally reducing the event's prestige.

12 Neutral English supporters going to Austria and Switzerland will heartily support your opponents. Unless you're playing Germany. Or Portugal. Or France.

13 Portsmouth's Niko Kranjcar, Manchester City's Verdran Corluka and Arsenal's Eduardo da Silva would feel the fans' ire week after week in the Premier League. They might not mind but it would get very tedious for the rest of us.

14 Aston Villa's fond memories of Bosko Balaban would be irreparably tainted.

15 Applause at Wimbledon for Mario Ancic and Ivo Karlovic would be notably muted, even when they play jolly well and knock up with the ball boys.

16 You won't get any credit - England will have been either a) cheated (World Cup 1986, World Cup 2006, World Cup qualifying 1994), b) unaccountably unlucky (World Cup 1990, Euro 2004, World Cup qualifying 1994), or c) foiled by an individual error (World Cup 1998, World Cup 2002, World Cup qualifying 1994).

17 You'll be denying some exclusive Alpine resort the benefit of 30-odd wags with platinum Amexes and a raging thirst.

18 David Beckham might not get to 100 caps - and nobody wants that.

19 You would condemn the match official to an early retirement after England fans bombard his website with death threats.

20 No major tournament is complete without England's attractive, free- flowing, fast-breaking brand of football and much-loved army of followers.

make all the excuses you want, but come tomorow night we will top the group and be on our way to euro 2008.

the league table does not lie, and when we finish top tomorrow this will prove we have been the best team in qualifying. what does this say for croatia? when we still finish top after one of our worse qualifying campaigns for years.

croatia have been in there best form for years and still wont finish above a much below par england.---lol...where have you got your stats from! We have been in one of our best forms just because we demolished you in Zagreb ?! Kid, learn your stuff before saying something like that ! This can't be our best form considering that in recent qualifiers we finished unbeaten with wins in Sweden and Bulgaria ! You know - THAT Sweden that you were lucky to avoid defeat at the WC
enuff said!

england will win by 3 clear goals

boy, you're a funny bloke

Obviously there are still hooligans in England (as anyone who watches Eastenders will tell you :D ) but we have put a lot of effort into controlling the problem because of the horrendous scenes broadcast around the World mainly in the 80's.

In England there is rarely trouble at football matches these days but there are still problems when we travel abroad.

There are 2 reasons for this.

1) Some English people tend to get incredibly drunk when abroad, which inevitably leads to trouble. They are not hooligans as such - they are just pissed up idiots.

2) When there is a hooligan problem other countries do not have the experience or the measures in place to deal with it. They either do not react quickly enough to a small fight that escalates or they wade in with batons instead of trying to calm the situation.

Unfortunately, it will be some time before we lose this wrongful tag as a nation full of hooligans.
SPOT ON...The same thing happens to us... our fans got provoked in italy with communistic totalitaristic chants and our fans responded with forming a svastica with their bodies. horrible things happend under both communism and fascism, and they responded on provocation. And we were told to be fascits because of a group of stupid drunk fans !

LMAO :D

GIVE IT ME I CAN TAKE IT ;)

i have to agree with you, croatia were the better side tonight and could of had 5 or 6 goals

we was bad tonight, mclaren got all the big decisions wrong, he should never of played carson, he got the 4-5-1 wrong, he switches to 4-4-2 we play a bit better, we get back to 2-2 and he goes back to 4-5-1 and they score the winner

it's probally a good thing we've been knocked out, we now can get rid of mclaren and start to rebiuld for the 2010 world cup, winning tonight would of keeped him in the job and masked what as been some of the worst england performances in this qualifying campaign for years!
No...we were not better tonight ! We ARE better ! Table don't lie ! :p
.... but you should be proud, you put up a good fight :p
When you were attacking you were like us against Australia at the WC - no imagination, no strenght at all... I think Niko Kranjcar played the best match ever for the national team... Olic too ( that bloke can't hold the ball for 2 seconds but the tormented your defense last night ), and Corluka was fantastic... He is a great RB
