Englands problem is that without Kane we can't score....unlike Belgium who i think will win the tournament.

Columbia must have been taking tips from the cheating Argies.
Nice to see them both packed off.

If Columbia had concentrated on playing football for the whole 90 minutes instead of being intent on cheating, fouling, diving and trying to intimidate the referee until Ingerland scored thay’d have probably won it. They were the better team in the second half. Glad to be shut of the dirty twats though.

Ali got rid of the ball as soon as he received it. All his tricks and flicks that work in a fancy dan Totiingham side do not work at International level. Injury my arse, he cannot cut he mustard and has been found out and knocked off his pedestal. He has done nothing at all in the games he has started and is no team player. Replace him with Loftus Cheek who looks and plays like he’s made for this level and we look more balanced.
Sterling’s little tattooed legs move too fast for his tiny brain. Runs like a girl, a fast girl mind, but has no control and his tap ins at Man City are on a plate for him. Replace him with Rashford who has pace with skill and we look more balanced.
Young who is old, plays left wing back but is right footed cannot tackle but can push people over. He plays for Man.Utd has tattoos, wears wrist bands, swear at the ref and is shite. Replace him with Rose who can tackle, head and get forward and cross with his left foot and we then look more balanced.
A balanced argument.
Oh and Harry was class, that’s Maguire not Kane.
Be a struggle v the Turnips, who are dour and game spoilers. We should beat them, but they are a solid unit whereas we carry 3 players, see above.
Thanks

I don't think England have been poor, but neither do I think we've been outstanding.

I tell you what we have been though, determined.

And all teams need a slice of luck along the way (or in Greece and Portugal's case the whole damn cake to win the tournament.)

Maybe we might get that 'luck' along the way, despite VAR being seemingly against us.

Who knows?

It's good to have a reached the Quarters, we've done well to get this far - and we can only advance past what is put in front of us - so let's enjoy it.

For a change. 

Now then...

So, a WC Semi Final against beatable opposition, never thought I'd see the day again, arrise Sir Gareth Southgate, if big Sam was still manager we'd be back home now.

Thanks goes to an undercover journalist who bought a pint of wine for Big Sam in a Chinese restaurant.

Thanks also to Hodgson who gave most of the players their first start in the national team.

Shame about the inability of some English to drink a lot without behaving like idiots in town centres and furniture shops. Notice that there is almost no bad behaviour in Russia where there are consequences.

Agree with that Ted, though Sam will be telling everyone it’s his side and he built the foundations blah blah.

I had/have Southgate down as a poor manager. Against Swindon he kept the same side despite Ali, Sterling and Young being shit the game before. All rewarded with another game and guess what, shit again. It needed changing, no sentiment in football and he missed the opportunity.

We won so you may offer he was on the money. Fair enough, but despite the global ejaculation at beating weaker sides with under pR performances there is a real need to up the ante or we are in danger of gett8ng dicked.

Still, happy days until..... as the youth say, “free larns on me shurt”.

Sort of agree Cheats.

Don't agree about Southgate (in general) he deserves credit where credit is due.

As for team selection, I would've put Rose in for Young and Rashford for Sterling, but hey, we won 0-2.

Part of me sees the reasoning for continuity, keeping the faith and all that. But it can also make a rod for your own back, too.

Progression over performance at the sharp end of the tournament, Cheats. You know that. 

Now then...

Jordan Henderson is a doubt with a hamstring strain, this would be a blow.
Although Delph has looked useful when coming on.
Croatia very strong in the middle and lets hope that Henderson starts (A fit Henderson that is)
We can win this one.

I like the kid with the double barrelled name. He is strong and very quick.
