I know it wouldn't have reached the players, probably! but the over confidence of most of the 'Tartan Army' and many of the pundits on TV and radio was staggering..... writing Croatia off as over the hill duffers, well past their best. My goodness they even had well known football expert Val McDermitt on last night before the game telling us Croatia peaked 3 years ago and that their players were in the "winter of their career"
Modric? who's Modric? ah yes, that oul' fla.
The manager could have shuffled the pack, altered formartion, man marked Modric but the outcome would have been the same.
Well, unless we had got that f**king bit of luck and bounce of the ball we have NEVER had in the finals we have reached.
Never once.....unlike Wales, Norn Irn ad Rep of Ireland.
It was like instant replay dejavous all over again.
