If you haven't been following the World Cup, you're missing out on plenty of drama. There are twists and turns in nearly every match and now that we're down to the last eight teams the stakes are only going to get higher.

Last night, England became the final team to clinch their place in the quarter-final after a dramatic penalty shootout victory over Colombia. The whole country would have been on the edge of their seats or their barstools and, let's be honest, we were equally gripped here across the Irish Sea.

Were we happy for our neighbours or were we cursing the fact that Colombia didn't get it over the line after their last-gasp equaliser? Well, it seems like it was a bit of both.

Some were delighted for our cousins across the water...

For others, the result led to potentially life-altering decisions...

Some preferred to remain philosophical...

Of course there was the odd back-handed compliment...

Some pointed out that there's nothing wrong with supporting England since we consume so much of their sporting culture...

The 'H' word was bandied about a bit...

Pressure's on, lads...

Hey, England... Some of us do want you to go far at the World Cup...

Which side of the fence are you on? We'll leave the final word to Grant Mitchell. Perhaps he can sway you?
