Germanwings to the Croatian capital. Its warm and sunny in Zagreb ready for the England game.
First take in some culture - the Technical museum and the Naive Art Museum featured this time.
Croatia 1 England 4
So if nil-nil was considered a good result beforehand what about a 4-1 away win ?
The locals generated some atmosphere in the un-improved Maksimir Stadium. But England ran out easy winners. They'd quietened the crowd with Walcott's rather fortunate first goal and survived some scares in the first half.
Whilst in the dramatic second period , after Robert Kovac got sent off for his elbow on Joe Cole's head , England put together some impressive moves with Rooney usually involved. Walcott did the rest.
Maybe we had above average luck and Croatia had a bad night at the office. But it will give us great confidence for the rest of the World Cup campaign.
With no reports of any trouble as well presumably even the Bad Blue Boys had an early night.
