    What a hit from Christensen.

    the 12 minute period from the 70th minute was epic.

    Brilliant! Denmark game was great. Strike was brilliant. Made even better by the context of the game.

    Wijnaldum is having a good tournament too.

    Feel for Hradecky (??), made some absolute brilliant saves, didnít deserve that.


    Interesting tournament isnít it. Basically win one game and youíre a chance to progress.

    This, they were quick to label Phillips as the Yorkshire Pirlo but played like a Yorkshire Pudding against us. Imagine playing 2 defensive midfielders against Scotland ffs

    I don’t think you can bench the Premier Leagues leading goalscorer and assist-er.
    Sterling, you can drop him.
    Foden has done reasonably.
    Phillips had a good game one.
    Mount, Sterling and rice can be rotated imo.

    Grealish and Henderson haven’t had much game time over the last few months so maybe that’s impacting decisions.
    Sancho needs to play for a EPL club to get a look in.

    Against Scotland, England had 4 or 5 players who will be starting for UCL teams next season {James, Shaw, Mount, Stones and Foden). Foden still hasn't locked down his best position, Stones was lucky that Dias formed a good partnership with him because Laporte is clearly the better CB, James is still earning his place over Azpi and shared gametime all season, Shaw had a great season but performed way above his usual level and Mount had a good year (he just really needs Kane to piss off and stop standing around where he wants to be playing in) The rest all play for mid table sides or lower. For comparison, Scotland had 2.

    Mid table squad with a couple of kids from top sides sprinkled on top. Add in an average coach and they should be happy they made it out of the group.

    Would a squad of:

    Pickford
    Walker, stones, Maguire, trippier(or Shaw)
    Henderson, mount, foden,
    Sancho, Sterling and rashford

    Be better?
    Bar Pickford, all should be getting regular UCL and league game time.

    James has cemented his 1st team place and doesnt share with Azpi anymore

    They both played in 65-68% of total mins this season according to the internet. I'm just saying that this was the year that he took over rather than him owning that position for years. He's still a improving, because he's
    still a kid.

    Bar Pickford, all should be getting regular UCL and league game time.

    Dean Henderson
    Walker/Trippier- Stones - Maguire - Shaw
    Mount - *Rice - Foden
    Sancho - Rashford/Kane - Sterling.

    To me, thats a much more attacking side than what we've seen. Plus if they move to a 4-3-3 (similar to Spuds) then it may benefit Kane who is obviously the better striker, but given his form right now I would honestly start with Rashford and let Kane earn his spot back from the bench.

    *Henderson isn't fit and Rice has shown that he should be playing for a bigger side.

    Grealish, Saka, Phillips Calvert-Lewin and Bellingham off the bench sounds a bit different to starting them.

    Brilliant game the Sweden one. lewandowski with a meme worth effort in the first half hahaha.

    Spain infinitely lucky against Slovakia. Morata looks so Impotent. Gifted their opening goal, but the longer that stayed 0-0, the worse Spain were getting. Laporte playing for Spain now? Googling tells me he played youth for France, selected in France World Cup qualifiers and Euro qualifiers however never took the field. May 2021, applied for Spanish clearance.



    Group F dishing up some drama. All teams have been qualifying at Some point, 3 teams have been last in their group at some point this morning.

    Hungary were going through in 2nd place at one point. Portugal were going through 1st at another. Germany were in with a massive chance of going out as well. Crazy.

    Italy and Belgium are the only big sides looking good so far. Sweden have a good balance. Netherlands look like they could trouble anyone. Some enjoyable games coming up too.

    Damn. Czech did very well.

    Belgium lucky to keep portugal out. Despite having a fair few counter attacks with numbers, they couldn’t convert to put it to bed.

    Bruno Fernandes is a penalty fraud. Just about every Portugal attack was ruined by him
