Then again, a Loyalist group tweeted to say they were supporting their Protestant Dutch allies against Spain as well as England.
Wow. I thought we forgot about that about 300 years ago.

Fun fact: did you know the orange in the RoI flag represents William of Orange?

Yes, I did know that, but supporting a country based on events that happened several hundred years ago is ridiculous. (I'm sure in 200 years time, "2 World Wars and 1 World Cup" will be seen the same way.)

That's surprising, I thought it would have been Protestant.

Once known as a Protestant country, in 2007 the Netherlands was only 16.8 percent Dutch Protestant (down from 60 percent in the early 20th century; defections primarily due to rising unaffiliation). This is considerably less than the 26 percent of the population represented by Dutch Catholics in 2007.

Got to say, I like the look of the French side. Good balance, in terms of age, physicality, etc. excellent mix of players, and one or 2 match winning individuals.

But just before you get big headed about it, just thought I'd remind you of last time http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=rLglFSV88w4&feature=kp

I wonder if France have any players fit for the next match after that. Honduras had their tactics perfect - although I think they confused football with cage wrestling...

I thought they went quite soft on the French! Compared to the 'friendly' against England, and how they usually play having watched a lot of the Americas qualifying rounds, they were on best behaviour tonight!

Have to say that of the games so far, France were easily the best team so far. Evra and B were brilliant.

France were very fortunate nonetheless, needed a penalty to break them down. Fortunate Pogba didn't get sent off. 2nd goal was also very fortunate (and debatable?)

While they were comfortable, and do have a nice mix in their team, I wasn't overly impressed with the French. Matuidi gets better every time I see him though.

Stunning in attack but Spain kind of fell to prices and gave up by the end.

No chance. It's easy to look good for 45 minutes against 10 men Honduras.

Yes, congratulations to France for beating 10-man Honduras. A victory which will no doubt be talked about for decades.
