Extract from Story:
An American guy who knows nothing about soccer got way too into the World Cup match between England and Croatia in an effort to seem cool and worldly to his dumb friends. He even used the word "gutted" to describe his feelings after the loss, knowing this is a word that British people use to describe disappointment.

I liked it too.

I watched the game in almost total silence, ruing the fact that we hadn't extended our lead by half time and fearing the worst.

Croatia weren't all that good and their finishing was awful, but when Modric and Rakitic started working the channels and putting balls around the corner Croatia always had the man over and our back three became a back five I knew we were in trouble.

It was nice to see Harry Maguire getting stuck in and putting the fear of God into the Croatian centre backs but it seemed only a matter of time before they put a shot or two in that weren't a nice height for the keeper.

I didn't understand it either.

And because of the extra time I was two minutes late for work.

France would have kicked our arses in the final anyway.

Regards

Skoob.

I think it was just a case of the England midfielders were not running middle enough, and the Croatian players were kicking the ball really hard.

I, like Tom, was gutted.
