    Croatia 6/1 today against the English. Worth a small punt or should England win comfortably?
    When I was discussing our group with a mate before the tournament, he made the point that Croatia's recent form has been very patchy indeed - pretty sure it was something like them only having won 4 of their past 12 games, 2 of which were against Malta and Cyprus.

    It's not really World Cup finalists form.

    England are normally pretty solid at home, I'm expecting them to do pretty well tbh.

    Best result for us today I think is a big win for England. Goal difference could easily come into it both in the group, and across the groups for the 4 best 3rd places. Italy and Belgium have helped us out so far

    I was just talking to my daughter about what we want today
    Always want England to lose, but not so sure today

    Croatia win would be better. Donít want England resting players against the czechs but want Croatia to rest against us.

    Plus itís England so naturally want them humiliated.

    England team
    Pickford
    Walker Stones Mings Trippier
    Sterling Philips Rice Foden
    Mount
    Kane

    Wonder why they are playing a right back, at left back

    Croatia to win, Kyle Walker to be red carded, 250/1

    Think Southgate was out last night.

    2 best leftbacks in the premier league last season and he picks a right back over both of them?

    No Chilwell or Sancho in the squad at all. 2 defensive midfielders? Sterling over Grealish?

    Yikes. He might be a genius but he'll get slaughtered for this if it goes wrong.

    Itís very weird. Suppose it explains why Southgate wanted so many right backs in his squad.

    Couldn't quite believe it. Shearer's face is a picture, he's desperate to say that its a weird line up but can't bring himself to!

    Surprised Grealish isn't starting and Sterling is.

    The great thing about the build up to England games is that they have to play all the losses and disappointment.
    A great day out ruined by the football

    Think I'll steer clear then! Your stats, and bookie pricing the Croats at 6s shows they're pretty confident in England not losing. Hopefully they are wrong today!

    You would have thought so.

    Heartening to hear the booing of taking the knee quickly replaced by what sounded like more people applauding.

    England defence looks terrible for this level imo.

  24. #413
    Terrible refereeing stopping the game there.

    Unlucky from Foden. England are going to be so dangerous breaking against anyone in the group.

    I honestly think the only way to beat England is to take the game to them. They have so much attacking threat if you sit back they are going to break you down.

    That's why I can't see Scotland getting anything against them. We don't have the players to dictate the game and take it too them.

    France and Belgium do have that ability and will likely beat England if they play them IMO.

    I take great comfort in the winner of our group playing the runner up in France's group, it could well be England only play an extra game than us
