    Post Match - England 1 - Croatia 2 (AET)

    Firstly over the course of 120 minutes the better team won. Secondly we should have blown them away in the first half. Before and during this tournament I felt that our complete and utter lack of a central midfield would get us eventually. What we'd have given for a Gerrard, Lampard or Scholes to marshal that centre of the pitch. Without that midfield general (a la Modric) we were never truly in control of the football match. The defence had no one to feed the ball too and the attack had nobody to relieve some of the defensive pressure and create space. Thirdly, our play in the final third (throughout the entire tournament) was a disgrace. The Alli, Lingard, Sterling and Kane front four was a disaster IMO. Looking back I find it incredible we've actually made it this far. Our inability to make the final pass or put the ball in the back of the net in open play was an embarrassment. I have a lot of time for Southgate but that front four experiment must be abandoned immediately. It simply didn't work. I'm personally a fan of Kane, but he is about to win the golden boot despite being pretty shit the whole tournament. But overall we have the beginnings of something, our youth teams have delivered two world cups and other championships and our senior team is showing better technical ability than I can ever remember. But we need to develop a world class central midfielder as an absolute priority.

    France v Belgium - Semi Final Tues 10 July 7pm

    Probably one of the most stale semi-finals I've ever seen. Not helped by the fact each country had around 100 fans in the stadium. France may be big favourites for the tournament now but they really aren't all that IMO.

    Colombia v England - last 16 round - 03/07 at 19:00ko

    Jesus H Christ. My heart. Unbelievable. Absolutely elated. Shades of Argentina in 66. Columbia were an absolute disgrace tonight. Good to see that cheats never prosper. I think there is much for us to improve upon. Despite making the last eight. The Lingard/Alli/Sterling experiment isn't working. The amount of times we'll lose the ball or make the wrong decision in the final third is criminal. If we can sort that out.... For me it almost feels like the pressure if off. Let's just go for it now. Nothing to lose.

    Whatever happens we've been a total joke tonight. Southgate has completely lost me.

    2 shots on target all night. Not good enough to progress IMO. Where will this leave us if we do go out? Victories against Tunisia and Panana were expected. It would have been a catastrophe if we'd have not won those. But the games against actual football teams...left severely wanting. The Lingard, Alli and Sterling experiment must never happen again.

    In a way we deserved it. We've played disgustingly poor since the goal. Couldn't create the square root of **** all. We're going out IMO. Truly the cursed nation.

    Jesus Christ our ball control and decision making in the final third. As bad as I've seen in this tournament.

    Even if we win this, it's been so frustrating. We could be a genuinely good side if we had that.

    YES! Seriously though, how have the VAR not brought it back to review the spot tampering!??? Instant red surely!!

    We are clearly the better team but our inability to retain and play the ball in the final third is begging Colombia to sucker punch us.

    How? How many through balls or balls over the top are we putting in?

    I'm telling you now we are going no further in this tournament or as a team if All and Sterling continue to consistenly lose the football in the final third.
