Did the BBC watch the same football match as me?
They fawned over raheam sterling .


To me swedan had 12 men on the pitch as he constantly gave them back the ball.


Gareth Southgate needs to explain why he picks him over vardy,wellbeck,rashford. As he is so poor in all the games.

I think Southgate would have had a hell of a lot of explaining about Sterling if England had lost

Agree with that.


I think Southgate thinks he can't win and needs an excuse .


And that excuse is sterling .

I think Croatia played average , what they lacked in skill they made up for in fouls . Something the ref seemed to be very leiniant towards.


My concern with England was the final finish. Kane was hopeless and looked as he has done in a few games over whelmed.


Raheam sterling was a national embarrassment.


He completed 0 passes , he ran into defenders , he missed over 3 open goals , he could not run with the ball.


No opposition were ever worried by him at all. A liability to England . I blame Southgate for this . He set us up to fail.


Rashford came in and made an instant impact with pace , agility and most importantly being able to hold the ball.


He should of started with vardy or wellbeck.
Kane looked great against Panama and tunisia. But it's Panama and tunisia for god's sake..








England were gifted the easiest route in history to the world cup final and they absolutely blew it .


Unfortunately Southgate has the media fawning over him., So does the team. They will not get better they will be at best average.


Sorry to be so negative but this truly is a disappointment ..

First thing I noticed was Kane out on the wing for so long, I didn't think he would score from there,
and as someone mentioned in previous matches, why wasn't Rashford on earlier.

There were a lot of fouls especially in the first half, Croatia a bit desperate to equalize.  I didn't watch extra time tbh it bores me, they should cut it out and go straight to penalties.

Final


France 4  Croatia 2


More goals so welcome, was wondering if it was preferable England losing in the semi-final than the final, perhaps it would have been more disappointing.
