And it will be the Palarse dullard's fault
I think most folk with rational heads know that it will be tough to go beyond Saturday. Unless Mbappe has an off day, and England are at their absolute best, that's all folks.

So the question will be the general performance of the team. I can't see England's defence coping. But it would be good to see some joy going forward.

Yep. Those three ahead of the rest currently but Mbappe head and shoulders above all.

I think today has just prolonged/delayed the agony for England fans - he will destroy Walker/Stones/Maguire.
Utter and complete bollox. You don't know what you're talking about mate.

Of course it will be tough but the French won't be looking forward to it either. They haven't got the best defence.

Should be a good game.

I'm a little in awe of Bellingham. He's so good already as a player but he's also incredibly mature for someone so young. He's making a big difference to the team and is the main reason I have some hope for the game against France.

I rather like his burgeoning bromance with Henderson, he doesn't seem to have the all consuming arrogance of youth, he clearly admires and respects his role models in the game

Class act, that lad, both on and off the pitch. Happily one of many in this England squad who are decent role models.

Mr Southgate has, probably fairly, got his critics but one can't help but acknowledge his skills at creating an inclusive culture where seemingly all the players get on incredibly well. A marked counterpoint to life under Sven, Capello, Woy etc where things seemed much more tribal. If we do go through on Saturday (and that's a big IF), it will be as much to do with the desire to want to play for each other as the performance of individuals.

I'm not fully on board with the Mbappe love in. He has lightening pace and knows where the goal is which is devastating but take away his pace and he can be dealt with. He's no Zidane

What a wonderful young talent Jude is. The way he speaks is unbelievable. What maturity. It's brilliant to have a national side containing people i'm happy to get behind.

As for the quarter final. I agree with those saying that we don't have the defenders to cope with the pace and skill of Mbappe and Greizmann. However I think we have a few they will struggle to deal with as well. Our best chance is an end to end slugfest and w ecome out the better team from a 4-3 type match
