Re: England v Croatia

I felt strangely sanguine at the finish. But we really should have put the game to bed early on, when the going was good. Putting the chances away is crucial and no amount of spin proves otherwise. As is so often the case the lack of a bit of cool-headed quality in the final third let us down. But things can only get better as more quality players come in.

Re: England v Croatia

Was'nt it Croatia that was supposed to be knackered, after their last two games went to extra time? Plus the fact, that some of their players were over 30? A young England team were all over them like a rash in the first half, so it looked like there was no way that Croatia could get back into the game. Oh dear! It all went pear shaped. Still I suppose a brave effort as usual, but that's small consolation.

And don't forget that creative player we have been crying out for, for years, will soon be on his way, in the shape of Curtis Jones.

I agree, these young men were the pride of Britain, before this match,but they are young and maybe have more to learn. What they need now is support, rather than criticism, because that will show them the support is still there & it is worth trying a bit harder on their next match ( wherever it is).

I thought Southgate was great when he went to comfort them & I loved the way the team applauded their supporters.

Sorry John, I did watch it so it may be all my fault!
