    The other thing is that if Harry Kane was on top form, we would have won. He hasn't been looking good since the Panama game. He's either knackered or injured.

    The first picture left and right is Coco. Second picture on left might be too.

    Serious question. Does that really please you? It was the same exact script as Columbia in taking a 1-0 lead to the half and then just trying to hang on hoping that Pickford would bail the team out until time ran off the clock.

    It's not the same. Croatia were better than us in the second half, Colombia were not. It was Croatia playing well not us playing poorly that won them the game. We could have won if we'd scored our chances in the first half though.

    Kane went off the boil though. If he was firing, then we could have had another three in that game. He barley involved himself in the Sweden game either.

    Do you not agree that England packed it in vs Columbia? You really feel like through the second half of that game England were clearly the better and deserved to win without extra time/penalties?

    Also yeah, I agree Kane wasn’t really good in the tournament. He scored 6 goals the rest of us could have scored. But someone’s gotta help him right?

    I would have thought England would have learned their lesson after Columbia that their defense isn't good enough to just sit back and play defense. It's one thing to sit back and try to counter or try to hold position, but England didn't even try to do that.

    I think you're misunderstanding me. I think that in the Colombia game, we chose to defend in the second half. In the Croatia game we had no choice but to defend in the second half. Those are very different things.

    Croatia was not only better in the second half, they were arguably as good in the first half.

    Croatia making a late push for most hated with this. Will it be enough to counteract Mboopi turning into a villain in the last game?

    Sorry @hayvis, I have made some sort of miscalculation in my simulation studies.


    I think England did really well considering they only have one offensive player who can score a goal (much better finishing from defenders doe!). Lingaard specifically just looked like the stage was too big for him. Hamfooting it on that open shot from the top of the box was so bad.
