Looked good early on but were hanging on in the end.
Few weak spots in the back line.
Chance to make the final, but no chance against France in the final.

According to the pundits France have the talent but little teamwork. So no problem.

There be 2 tough games in the other half of the draw for whichever team gets through to the final.......Thats a lot of tired legs and a good leveller....me thinks:clap:

England can do this......treat every game like its the final.(y)
Really?

So what was the plan with the Belgian match then?


Leave it to Gareth matey he knows what his doing. (y)


You keep your slippers on. ;)

Well assuming you watched the match, it was pretty clear that neither side wanted to win given the omissions from either team. Unfortunately for them, Belgium scored and as a consequence they have 2 very tough games ahead, where they may or may not progress. :LOL:

I am leaving it to Gareth, it's his job. But it wont stop me from telling you how things will unfold.......just like I told you all about Brexit :clap::)(y)

You keep hugging those trees. (y)

It wouldn't surprise me if Uruguay did win today.

Great game last night between 2 of probably the best teams in the tournament.
No boring defensive play from either but sadly there had to be a loser.
Belgium saved by their acrobatic goalie and Brazil robbed of a penalty.

Yeah and I think Belgium have enough to see off France in the semi (y)

Now that would be some final......Belgium v England.......a regular Premier league clash.

Atilla will point out the obvious that Belgium have already beaten England, but with 8 or 9 first team players missing from each side, then the previous match has little to no relevance.

I was responding to your armchair twaddle about "treat every game like its the final" and then not recognising, fielding subs is not exactly trying hard.

Personally, I think Gareth Southgate has done and continues to do a sterling job of managing the side. :clap::love::clap::love::clap:


As you can imagine for you to then think I'm not able to work through the difference about Belgians having already beaten us is clown's work. You are on regular form.

Carry on as you were :cheesy:

Game over and a superb win for England.
At last the team played an open game but still slow to get the ball moving.
Should practice first time kicks and passing.

This is the BEST World Cup tournaments compared to all the other ones before.

So many high scoring goals with plenty of excitement. With VR and penalties it's just simply the greatest show on Earth. Errrmmm David Attenborough's Planet Earth shows come close but let's call it 50/50.

It's for the taking now, yes we can beat France.
Off to get my England shirt in red.
Will stick a photo up.:LOL:
Come on CV and the rest stick your photo up as well with your England shirt on.

Lucky big Sam got the chop otherwise we would have been playing like Sweden.

Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino will have played the biggest part in England winning a world Cup.

Wish I was coming home for the next week.:LOL:
Still have night mares of the German semi in 90, the year before I left England.
Mabe I should double or nothing on DAX trade, only joking.

Phoned the Nike shop about 20 min drive.
Yes we have the England shirt in size XL.

When I get they only have white shirts.
So have ordered online from Melbourne.
Don't want the unlucky white one.
