He's not coming off, but if I was subbing Kane it would be for Rashford. Croatia hate theses runs 

I'd be surprised if they stay as high tbh

You're Southgate. You have two left backs in your squad.

One was voted the best LB in the Premier League and inducted into PFA Team of the Year.

The other one played a key role in his club winning a Champions League.

What mental gymnastics do you use to play Trippier there?

If England come out the traps again, they could score and open up the game. Croatia look a bit toothless. For all the quality they have in the middle, they need more in the final third. 

Again, though, Modric, even at his age, looks a class above the rest of the players on the field. What a player.

We've been complaining about the wrong right back :D

Walker was so poor in possession first half.

Kane will be fine if he plays off their centre halves instead of trying to occupy spaces where we already have players.

The long ball in behind has been working for Sterling. Kane needs to be there to give him an option.

"I'd take 5 or 6 right backs if I could!"

Trippier has played well, the issue is neither him or Sterling want to go wide. 

I'd switch Foden and Sterling

I think both Bamford and Watkins are both a technical level below what's needed against top defenders, DCL at least offers something different.

Probably true regarding Bamford and Watkins but they both offer something completely different to Kane and DCL. The constant working of the channels and high pressing. 

No point in talking about that now though because neither of them are there :D

I feel sorry for Modric, he's clearly still playing at a high level but then there's nothing ahead of him. Croatia are badly lacking a skillful winger that can take players on. Or even a proper LB that's not an adapted CB.

See Sterling **** when in the box :D

Though he did take 10mins to get the shot away!

Good goal. Fantastic by Philips who's having a wonderful game and Sterling providing the needed penetration.
