    Giroud has been incredibly lucky to be where he is. He also buries chances at a rate that is just below world class. You could do much worse.

    It makes me wonder how many he scores in the absence of the rule.

    Does a striker who is perpetually offside count?

    Those are not needed to get through, or to win knockout matches. If you want to win the thing, forwards are necessary unless you brought Xavi and Iniesta.

    I wouldn't like to be the Argentines facing them in context.

    You talking about this game or the entirety of his international career?

    If you did, your bookie would like a word.

    Good at key group stage draws and wins against lesser sides at the death, I suppose. Not so good at knockout wins. The crash from the Algeria goal to Ghana remains the only experience I can compare to the hard drug use I don't know about, and that one unfolded over days.

    Did anyone have Rico? There is no universe where anyone had Valencia.

    That one can never be repeated for meaning. I was out with the kids for the first five goals, and I will never forgive the cause.

    They really should be playing Foden foyr the 90. Unsure why Southgate can't figure that one out. Oot if you're mangling the language the Mersey way. Still unsure why it's out but also aboot if you're from Canada, eh.

    Killer trolling, to be fair.

    It does not go over my head. We would take a draw in that situation all day long. It means we just have to beat Iran. Are they better than Wales? Almost certainly. If we booted the Wales game and were given a second chance? Sold.

    I mean, I knew the former. Oh, bloody hell, I've cacked up that humanity thing again. EDIT: Yo, language filter, how. Cheney. Nixon. Like, people.
