I was not supporting England against Croatia, although I recognize that they had an interesting young team that exceeded expectations and who will probably go further in the future. But I got increasingly annoyed about English fans who kept saying that "Football is coming home".
The home of football has for a long time been the entire world. So I am happy to say that football remains home, while England is going home (although after a bronze-match).
Croatia in the final is great: the smallest country after Uruguay ever to make it to a final, shows that small European nations can also compete at the highest level in the expanded European Championship known as the World Cup.
