Western Slope World Cup Watchers

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- If you were glued to the television Wednesday you were probably watching the World Cup semifinals.

England and Croatia battled it out in Russia, with millions of fans watching around the world.

Here in Grand Junction, dozens came out to show their support at the Goat and Clover Tavern downtown.

Fan David Lloyd emigrated to the United States years ago after leaving his home country of England.

"Nervous they've not been in the semifinals since 1990 and they only won it once in 1966. So yeah, pretty nervous today,” said David Lloyd, England fan.

England soon took the lead in the 5th minute with a free kick, but the game was soon tied going into overtime. The final score of 2 to 1 leaves Croatia going to the World Cup final.
