Can't decide between my deep, deep-seated hatred for Pommie cunts and the fact that it would be an emotionally incredible result for them to win.

I have a good friend from Croatia, so that's the bandwagon I've been on since Mexico went out.

Belgium v France is a going to be epic a belter. How I would have loved it to be the final.

Croatia v England, Croatia have deeper talent, so should get up but you never know.
Worried that Croatia will be a little fatigued after the QF against Russia, Versaljko, Mandzukic, Strinic looked physically troubled.

Fantastic tournament this has been, let's hope for a thrilling finale (preferably with no penalty shootouts)

At first I thought it was french. Then quickly switched to Belgian, for your incessant love of the pomme de terre. Pommies.

All are valid options, considering cobbles down there seems to have a deep seeded hatred for everyone.

Yeah I would have guessed either France or Belgium first figuring Pommie was some variation of either French apple or potato.
But then again with Aussie slang it could have been any of the 4 with no reasonable link to the country. Foster's logic at its finest.

Used as a disparaging term for a British person, especially a recent immigrant.

Shortening and alteration of pomegranate, Pummy Grant, alterations of Jimmy Grant, probably rhyming alteration of immigrant.

Since when was "Pom" or "Pommie" defined as offensive slang? My grandfather was from Leeds and we always referred to him as a Pom. If you want to make it pejorative you're going to need to add "whinging" beforehand, or take the Cobbler "cunt" route.

Anyway, I have next to no interest in soccer but I hope Belgium or Croatia win simply because neither has won it before. Preferably Croatia.

And I will laugh for days if England make the final and find a way to completely choke it up with a few minutes to go.
