Yes, it’s nothing special. At face value, getting to the semis is impressive, but considering their run any England team should be expecting to reach the semis if drawn against those teams.
They’ve lost to the only decent team they’ve played - a team who most wouldn’t put in their top 5.
No-one can say they didn’t put the effort in, but there are at east a half-dozen countries with far superior squads to England.
Their run to the semis is more to do with the draw. Yes, you can only beat who is in front of you but I think they are nothing more than competent at that level.
