    As I clearly can't sleep, these are the teams we have beaten since 66 in knock out football in regulation in a euros or WC

    86 - Paraguay
    90 - Cameroon ( Belgium AET)
    96 - (Spain Pens)
    02 - Denmark
    06 - Ecuador

    That's it. Paraguay, Cameroon, Denmark and Ecuador.

    Of the top nations we've beaten France (82), Argentina (02) and Holland (96) in the group stages. On the flip side, I think we've been drawn with Sweden 78 times and never beaten them in my memory.

    Enjoy any England win in a major tournament. There aren't many of them.

      If we lived in a perfect place nobody would vote Tory.

      He's basing that claim on a long and consistent history of stupid statements

      I enjoyed that far more than watching England in previous tournaments and loved it when that deserved winner went in.

      This is a different and much better squad and the nature of that winner will give us massive confidence. I fully expect us to trounce Panama, beat Belgium and go a long way in this tournament.

      Kane, Lingard, Rashford and RLC are technically better than players weíve used previously but also have much more confidence in themselves at this level and are not afraid like the previous generations.

      I hope we start with that front four as I really believe they could do some damage.

      I didnít want Southgate to get the job at the time but heís won me over. He believes in this squad and vice versa - itís really showing - we would not have won that game under the last few managers.

      I believe!
      Yes Iím quoting myself but I think I called that well. Some of the negativity after the Tunisia game on this thread was baffling, we were clearly going in the right direction.

      Im starting to think Sam Allardyce getting himself sacked was the best thing that's happened to England in years. No chance we'd be playing the style of football we are now under him
