I cannot bear to watch a penalty shoot out but that's what I'm about to do. Croatia (come on the Croats) are playing Turkey (in the quarter finals I think) and I switched over to find them in extra time. With 90 seconds to go, Croatia scored and while they were busy celebrating, Turkey equalised, literally ten seconds before the ref blew his whistle!!!
So now, if they can find the ball, it's penalty shoot out - is it sudden death? Don't know, not sure. Oh no, the poor Croatian guy has just missed!!! This is why I hate watching these things. I'm not tough enough. It's not sudden death, it's the full penalty shoot out. Tis a beautiful game indeed but also a cruel one. I'm away to hide behind a cushion!
