3-5-2 isn't a formation that good sides play. it normally turns into 5-3-2 when you are playing opposition who are comfortable in posession, and then you get overrun

TBF to Southgate he looked genuinely gutted in his post match, thought he was about to start crying at one point.

Beat a pub team in Panama, just about beat Tunisia with a last minute goal. Lost to Belgium B. Needed penalties to beat Colombia and beat an average Sweden team. Yet they'll be labelled as brave and proud. They didn't beat any of the decent sides they played.

England well on top. It sort of reminds me of us v spurs at Christmas though, when you knew at ht we should have scored a couple of those chances and then 2nd half is a different story.

 

Or maybe it’ll just be the same and England will win comfortably.

I think I was right.

This WAS their big chance.

It might not be. There is no stand out side in international football at present, England have done the right thing with their kids and have 2 sides who are world champions.

Spain Germany Brazil Italy etc all have lots of problems moving forward.

Kane is not that great when he's not taking penalties or standing in the way of shots.

This, got found out... Definitely not in the world class category. Just a goalscorer and good at nothing else

Nowhere near as good as the hype. They will all be in the tournaments but the quality is way down from the latter stages of CL football.

Not good enough in the end. No surprise. Shame it fizzled out so lamely in the end. Ah well. Was fun while it lasted. Been a great tournament. Can’t see anything other than a comfortable French win in the final (same as if England had got through)

Not enough experience at that stage for me.... All well and good having a young team, but you do need some proper experience in there... Decent experience too, not Ashley Young.. Noone got hold of the team from half time onwards to reorganise

All true but go 2-0 up, which we should have, and we almost certainly go through.

 

Still lose to France though.

Awful from Southgate tonight, not only sat back and watched Croatia overrun us in midfield but when he did make changes, his subs were really poor

Kane scores that second and it’s over.

 

England never seemed that in control though.

Yep - and he reall should have.

 

Thought we were completely in control 1st half but lost it 5-10 mins before they equalised and never looked the same after that.

 

Sloppy goals to give away too. ‘Least it was fair & square in normal time without a penalty shootout.

squares it & it's a goal. 

 

thought England were head & shoulders better in the 1H. I was gobsmacked how poor Croatia looked. Mad that they could come back and not just make a fight of it but utterly boss it
