Magnificent performance! Watched it on "Pick" channel. Went through all the emotions, the first goal by Ryan Christie, the nervous feeling as time went on, we needed a second goal, chances went....then, its almost ours but devastation! Jovic scores from a corner....should maybe have been covered but well taken. For the 30 minutes extra time Serbia were more confident, bossing it at times but thankfully, missed their chances and a super save by David Marshall. How did you feel at the start of the penalties? Could we dismiss the blow and do what we've done before? God it's 5-4 & Serbia must score to win. Marshall leaps to his left ...and what a save!! Elation! I just roared and roared and roared in front of my TV set. I'll leave the technicalities to you others, who've probably got in before me. At last, a major tourney. Lets go for it full blast when it comes. Yaaaaaaaaaaassss indeed, Jimbo!!
I was waiting for the last penalty to be retaken, looked like Marshall was too.
Not sure who told McBurnie he is a football player, definitely not a centre forward. The Ozzie worked his socks off, to be replaced by McBurnie for heaven's sake. Dykes might become another Joe Jordan, he has great potential and such a willing worker.
As McBurnie ran up to take his penalty I just thought this is the one to blow it, fair play, he popped it in.
Wife saying we are going to the tournament which should be all over Europe but Covid might say otherwise.
But a great night.
Please get me the no. for forums anonymous!

The spirit and the determination to play - not only for each other, but for the Nation was evident- Brought a tear to a 57 year old eye when I saw the players emotions at the end - we can take on the World - but not in the Argentina 1978 way more a calm assurance !
