      Just imagine it's the EPL, and 4th means CL qualification.

      4th is everything in English football.

      I've never understood the 3rd place playoff, only makes sense in Olympics for bronze medal. I really don't care who plays but would prefer if TAA and Henderson are rested.

      England reserves vs Belgium reserves Round 2. And the first game was a shocker.

      Today means a bit more than people make out.
      England only beat Panama, Tunisia and Sweden. Columbia on penalties. I don't care  that we made semi. Losing to Belgium twice and Croatia would just show that Southgates England had a lucky path and were below par... Lets be honest, fat Sam would have navigated the same path.

      If England win today it's the best since 1966, a medal and they can atleast say they beat a top team. Still a hero or zero game.

      Hahaha. Hilarious that. I've been saying similar the whole World Cup but you were intent on disagreeing with me and making the likes of Sweden sound like the greatest team on the planet. Defeat has brought you back to earth, I guess.

      Let's be honest England over achieved in this tournament.

      They did well to get this far but there are at least 6 teams better than than them most who they avoided.

      These 3rd place games are pointless. Teams have an attitude of it'll be nice to win but don't care if I lose.

      Obviously it'll probably mean more if my country were olaying, but as a neutral it's usually a boring game. Obviously it mean more money to FIFA so we'll have it for years to come.

      Even in defeat Southgate never changes. Sterling is the worst forward i've seen play for England. Vardy and Rashford on bench.

      Another way to see it, they under achieved. They could/should have beaten Croatia.

      Croatia are a decent team, but England has the superior team, especially in defence and attack.

      that's why I'm not buying into this Hero bullcrap. Any half decent manager doesn't insist on playing Sterling too so Southgate has gone way down in my estimation.

      Said it the other day, and I'll say it again now. He should be sacked.

      I know lots of you guys here don't like reality, but you really should. Southgate has been poor. England lucky. This 2nd loss to the same team in the World Cup is embarassing. It's a disgrace.

      3rd or 4th doesn't matter.. but this is a shambles.

      I agree really. 3-5-2 throughout the entire tournament. In that 2 was Sterling who played all the important games and did f**k all.

      Too true. All we hear is celebration of failure. Excuses.. and other nonsense.

      England were lucky they were not in Nigeria's group otherwise they would have been out alongside Germany.

      10 out of 10 for getting to the semi's. 5 out of 10 for quality of performance the gulf today was embarrassing. When you constantly defend a forward who hasn't scored for 1000 days then you have to wonder what the hell is going on crouchie would have been more of a threat. the problem now is the press will big them up for the Euros so they can knock them down .
      Defence is painfully slow to bring the ball out the midfield is bereft of imagination and Kane is proved to be purely a goal scorer and doesn't contribute anything else. Look at our front 3 and how hard they work and how many goals they have scored and then look at Kane,Sterling and Lingard or even Rashford they are no where near.
      So tomorrow I really hope Dejan get to win a World Cup winners medal but just hope the right team wins and its a memorable final they both deserve to be there.

      Once again this game highlighted the lack of quality in attack at the tournament for England. Thankfully they made the most of set pieces or it could have been another embarrassing exit.
