    Beat three poor sides, drew against a mediocre one, lost to two good ones. Can't really get carried away. Discarding the Belgium game, Crotia were the first decent team we came up against and we were found wanting. Pleased they exceeded expectations, but they had a fairly easy ride. Tonight was a chance to make history agsinst a team they were capable of beating and they failed to do it. Still nice to see an England team and manager without the usual egos. Onwards and upwards to the Euros 2020.

      Still not sure why Lingard was on the pitch. He was, wasn't he? Barely noticed him.
      Daniel Ortega must go. Hero turned villain. Murderous scum.

      Not sure anyone has said we had a right to beat them. All I’ve said is that we (a second rate country) are highly unlikely to get another opportunity to play a fellow second rate country in a World Cup SF ever again.
      You're:

      A. Talking shite B. Unbelievably negative C. Talking shite

      "Second rate country". Not big names you mean? Did you actually watch this World Cup or did you just presume that Spain, Argentina, Germany etc are always going to be 'first rate' when in reality they were all crap?

      A simplistic and totally incorrect view, backed up by the rest of your posts. Use your eyes instead of your tabloidesque bias.

      Don't see how anyone can fault them. Yea they were knackered towards the end and could have been 2 maybe 3 up at half time, but this was the best performance in a tournament and sense of togetherness I can remember for a long time. Yea you can argue we didn't really play any good teams, apart from Croatia, but you can only beat was is Infront of you.

      How do people know this will be our best chance? What's to say we don't use this experience for future tournaments and win one of them in the next 4 - 6 years? This could be the start of us doing a Germany, or a France when they reverted back to youngsters.

      They will come back hero's and rightly so.
      If we can't celebrate exceeding our expectations like we just have then what is the point.

      Southgate and the boys have created something to build on. We just need to try and keep the pressure of for the euros.

      Stones needs to move away from City.

      It’s the only way he will stop the silly mistake, needs to play every week

      I’m not quite sure why Stones gets the blame for that. It’s a freak header into that zone. But Mandzukic is behind Stones and in front of Maguire... why was Maguire around the back covering him? I mean Stones is good, but he can’t have developed eyes on the back of his head surely?

      He reacted too slowly.

      A top CB on his game would have reacted faster.

      that was exactly the mistake, Stones had completely lost him, didnt know he was there until too late. and good CB do have eyes in the back of their heads. moment the ball was headed in he should have reacted, but he didnt. shame as it was a really good performance from him otherwise.
