Lions, three of them: England win a shootout as Sweden await…

Well! We are through the looking glass now, people. England won a penalty shoot out and are into the quarter finals after a yellow card-laden battle against Colombia. All of our aunts are giddy as we try to rap our heads and croaky throats around it. 


Sweden also played a Roger Federer-less Switzerland, and though that was nowhere near as good there’s still plenty of fun to be had in discussing it.
