Eric Davis... another one for the PES books right there. Konami have been on point all along!

Im going for 11-0, El Salvador style.

I really don't think this is such a terrible shout. From what I've read about Panama, they are not even going to be close to competitive against Belgium and England. Double figures could happen!

Only finished above Honduras in qualifying as their negative goal difference of -1 wasn't as bad as -6 for Honduras :D

They don't seem to have concede much mind but only scored 9 goals.

I don't know if its better for England if Belgium thrash Panama or if they turn out to be an unexpectedly tough side for this match.

I'm getting a bit tired of mediocre 1-0s.

I reckon this will instead be a mediocre 2-0. To Belgium, obviously.

Where's Dembele?

Rarely starts for us, especially now KDB gets played lower next to Witsel.

Celtic fans rate Boyata? He's seen as one of, if not out biggest, liability among Belgian fans

No the vast majority think he's absolute *****. I don't mind him though.

Don't mind him starting tonight, it's the latter stages I worry about.

I still wish we'd have left Kompany home tbf, I can perfectly see him starting against England and either making one or two costly mistakes because he's not fully recoverd or just going off injured again.

Boyata considered a better option than Vermaelen then?

Still not fully fit I think. Makes sense not risking him against Panama to be fair

No, but Vermaelen isn't fully fit yet. Might be for the Tunisia game

"Your commentators are Mark Lawrenson..."

Couldn't press the Red Button quickly enough.

if it's based on the singing of the national anthem, then Panama have an early lead :cool:

most of the "big" teams have had problems so far at the World Cup, be interesting to see how Belgium do here

If you're going to dive in the seventh minute of a group stage game against the weakest team in the tournament, at least have the decency to do it properly...

Phill Neville not so subtly hinting Januazi was extremely unpopular at Man United.

Was making dinner so missed that, what did he say?

They showed the footage of the De Bruyne tackle on Januazi in training and Neville said that whilst Januazi was at Man U he had 14-15 teammates who would have 'lined up to give him that treatment.

 

What a weak yellow that was.

Did the other guy say he gave him some notes about players the night before and Lawro's reply was "It put me to sleep"? I think i heard that.

Is it just me or is Lawro really trying hard not to be racist about the ref?

Belgium are sloppier than I'd thought they'd be. giving the ball away and not exploiting chances when they get them. Early in the match yet though.

I've only just seen that KDB tackle on him. No remorse on it at all, and Lawro has apparently called Januzaj "mr popular" as well?
