If we win tonight… it’s fine to send the five year old to school in her England kit tomorrow. Right?— Duncan Weldon (@DuncanWeldon) July 11, 2018

I hate to say this but if England doesn’t win against Croatia in the World Cup today @theresa_may (a very weak leader) should resign in disgrace. They have such a great country but they don’t win anymore! So sad.— DonaId J. Trump (@realDenaldTrump) July 11, 2018
