Semi-final retrospective, part one

Yesterday's match occupied almost precisely the time it took me to travel from Paddington to Oxford. Clearly Belgium only lost because I was not yelling at the screen to encourage them, instead getting updates from the Guardian and the FIFA app. Ah well, next weekend we'll be in France for Bastille Day on Saturday and then the final on Sunday.

I seem to have had a lot of Belgium sympathisers participating in the last poll. Those who correctly predicted France to win were sekvo, strange_complex, huskyteer, drplokta, mount_oregano, hano and trepkos.
