So did you watch the game? If so, what did you think of their performance?

Did you race home from school to catch it - or did your school give you time off?

Or are you sick of hearing about England in South Africa? Maybe you wish everyone would just stop talking about the about the World Cup?

Danny, 12, Surrey, England

"It's not fair! My school finished at normal time, so we missed a bit of the football. But at lunchtime most of the school had a protest, chanting for them to send us home! Some teachers had to even stand by the gate so that we wouldn't go home. It was so funny!"

"We watched half the game in school!"

Georgia, 11, Yorkshire, England

"I couldn't watch all of it because I had a drama rehearsal at school, but every so often we would check the scores. Lots of people were allowed to go to the library and watch it on a projector screen, missing the last half hour of school!"

Emma, 12, East Sussex, England

"I didn't because I was at school and I'm on a three-week computer, TV and Xbox ban too! I'm really annoyed."

"They let us watch the whole match at school. We also made England flags. C'MON ENGLAND!"

Chloe, 13, Manchester, England

"I watched it a school too. All the years did except for Reception, 1 and 2!! The first goal was wicked but sadly I did not see it since I was at our school production practice. But we won. YAY!"

Molly, 9, Lincoln, England

"I watched it at school, it was awesome. We all thought the replay was a goal though!"
