So, another team doing what they have to do to win is fine but if Spain do the same, it's not fine?

I said it was fine but boring. Most people would rather watch a free-flowing match with both teams trading attacking moves. Spain hypnotize you with those short masses many made just to retain possession. You are right though that a team has to do what they have to do to win. I just dont have to enjoy it.

If Spain would actually try to get the ball forward you would see how exposed their back 4 are by pacey forwards. Remember their losses in competitive matches to the USA and Switzerland? Speed killed em.

So Spain should leave themselves vulnerable by playing attacking football yet it's fine for the other team to put pretty much everyone back defending?

I'm just going to stop here. Going in circles :/

England not embarrassed to be seen as this horribly defensive team to the rest of the world?

No, it's boring and it's boring.

Your opinion, dude. I don't find it boring when Spain play.

They don't have the midfield to play any other way.

Say England go on to win the tournament. Would it be worse than when Greece won it?

Nah, but this performance since 2nd half has been terrible but lucky.

I'd say so. Greece don't have the players England do.

Inter actually played nice stuff in their run, but because they played defensively at the Nou Camp, people remember the side as dull and boring on their CL run, which isn't the case.

The commentators keep going on about how tired England are, ignoring that they've been this awful for everything bar the first ten minutes? Rooney in particular has been absolutely shocking, although Young has run him close. As usual, all the big names (bar Terry) have completely bottled it at this tournament.

The thing is. England can play, we just haven't seen it for the last 75 minutes.

Joe Hart will take a penalty btw.

How is football injustice if you dont win a game because you missed a ridiculous amount of chances? If you dont score you dont deserve to win a game.

It's going to be an awful game. Just forget about the 120 minutes and go straight to penalties.

They've wasted all of our time :mad:

Or indeed at any point during this tournament or the build-up matches.

This year, I've seen lots of teams that deserved to lose, go on to win. Will England put a crown on that trend?
