Cheers, mate.

For what it's worth I think inexperience did this England team in. The moment seemed too big for them and you could see panick down the stretch.

But they are a young squad and if they learn from this they can become formidable for the next Euro and World Cup.

Yeah it will.

Their second 11 is probably good enough to get to the final thats how strong their squad is.

Mandanda
Mendy
Kimpembe
Rami
Sidibe
NZonzi
Tolisso
Thauvin
Lemar
Fekir
Dembele

Like I said, should be WALKING the World Cup with that squad.

If they can't beat this Croatia side who've had to go to extra time their last 3 games with a squad as strong as that it'll be nearly as bad as you fat yanks not being able to qualify ahead of Panama!

It'll definitely be a huge failure as solid as Croatia are. France have insane depth. I'm really hoping Dempele gets some proper game time its retarded how talented that kid is. I'll be rooting for Croatia just can't see past France.

Naldo is a Fifa God I used to love making my mates rage with him all you'd hear would be ''****ing Naldo!". Him and Leno everytime. Naldo is at Schalke atm coming off a ridiculously good season aged 35! Surprised Brazil never called him up he's almost as O.P as he is in Fifa the guy just seems to get better with age.

And your bang on. This was the best chance we've had in my lifetime and probs we'll have for the next 20 years. Piss easy route to the final. Not having none of this proud of the boys bull****, we shat our pants against ****ing Croatia ffs. Should have got to the final at the very least. Southgates a proper bum. Sticking with Sterling should be a sackable offence. Should've started Delph to man mark Modric. We had the easiest route to the final we'll ever have and didn't make it and I'm seeing everyone proud of Southgate

**** me, shocking standards.

Anyway like I said the proper footy will be back soon and we can all go back to hating international footy when it does.
And Pep. Pep's another who rates Sterling and implored the board to buy him before he came. You guys bent over City proper with that one. Pep wants to act all philosopher like and ****, well he can philosophy his way to getting finessed by Liverpool by paying 50 million for Sterling. Jeez, what a coup for the Pool

Agreed on Mandzukic, very underrated player. Fired Bayern to the treble, bangs them in for Juve … it's only at Atletico where things (somehow) didn't work out

Kante is gonna man mark the **** out of Modric and watch how the Croats fall. Typing that pisses me off because as you rightfully said, we should have had Delph do that for us. Instead. we're packing our bags and going home

Lol don't worry ShoulderRoll, I'm not what you'd characterise as a typical Brit.

We mentally crumbled from the second half onwards. The shape of the team was lost. We badly needed another body in midfield instead of Sterling in order to regain some control instead of papping it at every chance. Southgate needed to do what Allegri does at Juve and that's 'change the menu' mid game. Switch to a 352 with Kane and Rashford up top, Delph in midfield with Lingard and Henderson, Alli off, Rose on instead of Young who as Sparked correctly called, matched up poorly against Perisic.

We SHOULD have won. Take Modric out and Croatia aren't nearly as effective, even with the quality surrounding him. Unfortunately we didn't so we're also heading home

As for the future, I doubt it because you saying we'll become formidable isn't taking into account the rise of other teams man - Italy, Germany, Brazil, Spain, Netherlands, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, France etc will all be after blood. They want retribution having seen this World Cup slip through their fingers as well. Then the question - are we capable of competing with those teams at their best/in form? Probably. Can we beat them? I'll let you decide man ...

France have enough depth to field 4 genuine world class squads. Only the Germans can match them and even then, France have the superior talent. There's never been a team with this much amount of depth, to the point they left at home Rami, Nzonzi, Martial, Lacazette, Depay etc

If they don't win, there's going to be a massive backlash

Been a great tournament.

The team were written off before a ball was kicked, expected to falter in the last 16 (even quarters would have been a good achievement with the youngsters). I just don't expect as easy a run to the finals again for a very long time.

Said in this thread before the game, our weak links against Croatia would be Ali and Young, and i was right. Lingard also offered nothing, Kane was poor (should have squared it to Sterling for a chance to go 2-0), just one of those nights unfortunately.

I had the finals predicted as France v Spain from the beginning - looking like the French are huge favourites, wouldn't completely write the Croats off though, but 3 consecutive 120min games will not help. France do have a an extra recovery day too.

We have 2 good players? Kane and who? Please don't tell me Sterling..

Also can we end this ****ing myth EL Fenemeno spread about Sterling being bullied?

No goal in three years.. Did nothing last tournament and was 100% the worse player we had in Russia over six games. This guy plays at Man City and is meant to be the best player we have after (Kane) there is your reason he gets "so much" crap

Kane was injured since Columbia apparently.. what a shame Football was coming home if those Columbian thugs had not constantly fouled him
