      Oh well. Waiting for Southgate's knighthood and the celebration of failure that is to come in the future.

      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.

      This Belgium side would beat England 10 times out of 10 times with Southgate in charge.

      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.

      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.

      True.

      Ripa, you’ve really made an even bigger tit of yourself in this thread. All tournament you’ve been telling everyone how difficult England’s path has been, arguing with Diego and Luke, but now England are out they are an embarrassment?

      But then again, you did want Klopp fired at one stage for playing Migs, so shouldn’t be a surprise.

      Bet you are relieved to an extent because the Croatia game must have have been the most nervous and confusing semi for you since you watched brokeback mountain

      I'd have been proud to get to the final if we beat Croatia. I had no expectations to win the final, just get to it. I know 2nd isn't a trophy, but when it's England there's no trophies.
