Its a good time being an Englishman with England thru to the knockout rounds and a poor German team being eliminated in the group stages BUT 'Don't mention the Var.'

great result for england.

columbia are a better side than japan, but we are slight favs in a flip against them and then its a much better draw after that.

england being shorter than belgium now after getting beat by them, finishing behind them and having a worse side / squad than them says it all about the real winners of tonight's game

croatia look good value now. a sub par looking spain aside, they are favs v the entire half of the draw.

Just watched England VBelgium .to me the second string out tonight just don’t cut it .if this tea was the main team we would be home by now a few decent moves but not good enough Dier is well named .vardy very poor Rashford needs Kane and company to get the best out of him ,he missed a sitter ,totally underwhelmed by them ,

this is true of every team at the world cup. half of the nations that started the cup are out having fielded their first eleven

tournament football is about using the squad to get the best out of the team. thought delph had a good game coming in as did TAA and we know exactly what we are getting with rashford and vardy et al

tonight was a mere place holder in the fixtures. dont get injured, dont get suspended. nice uneventful game played at a sedate pace by both sides. neither were assed enough to bust any lungs to win.

real games start now

yah, we werent seen before the tournament as being particularly strong as a squad. but the first team and fresh, loose playing style is a nice surprise. i agree the second string are largely meat and potato replacements [hi phil jones] with some like rashford and vardy being able to offer a different approach when needed.

could be a nice betting coup come the next game.

lots of muggy punts being thrown at england. their price to win the tounrament is lol short.

columbia are nearing 3/1 on some sites and if a load of tabloid hyped mug money piles in on england then that could widen further. keep an eye on the price of columbia to qualify also, if that drifts steamroller in. the tie is a slight flip in favour of us.

brilliant, nice one phil.. have u seen the footage on you tube of the England v panama game when immediately after England have scored one of their 6 goals ( kane penalty ), and with all the England players still celebrating at one end of the pitch, panama kick off and go for goal, hilarious. I don't know how to post the clip on the forum, if u could help out cheers.

The only sour note for me in this game is the way the commentator's are rimming Messi.

He's a decent player yes, but the way they speak about him you'd think he'd ran this game and not been a bystander in the centre of the pitch.

France need to keep this level up to stand a chance of going all the way.

Yup posted earlier about the tragedy narrative surrounding Messi. He's as responsible as his team mates. Missed penalty, missing games, almost no impact or leadership.

random thoughts

kante is possibly the most influential midfielder in world football. the boy bosses the game, a one man swarm / metronome / pace setter. nowhere to be seen for di maria's howitzer though.

argie fans are great. pure passion

why did aregntina take messi off at half time?

argentinian goalkeepers: made in scotland.

what has mourinho done to pogba? this is 'Get Out' level mental imprinting

Anywayyyyy.

I have a chunk of change on Uruguay this year. Portugal look pretty but only their only cutting edge is ronnie. I say only...

Their midfield is chock full of quality though.

loving the latest incarnation of goal scoring chance laws.

the last man is no longer sent off if he makes a genuine attempt to play the ball.

this is as by awarding a penalty the goal scoring chance has been restored.

tonight we saw a 4 yard tap in to an open goal restored to a 12 yard penalty kick to a re-set schmeichel.

well played.

Something akin to a penalty try in rugby might be more appropriate under these circumstances. A deliberate handball on the line might also qualify. Well, at least some sort of justice was restored in the end.

wow what a thoroughly absorbing game that was, really gotta feel for the Japanese to be beaten with the very last kick of the game. Belgium will get a lot of the plaudits tmrw from coming back from 2 down, but I think the praise should go to japan, they matched them all the way and at times early in that 2nd half they were teaching Belgium how to play football. feel really sorry for japan, the Belgians a huge sigh of relief from them.
