Belgium look the better team, but neither of these 2nd XIs are doing well. Comedy defending from England despite Stones being our best player so far. Only TAA and Tielemans challenging for the next match.

Yeah, and I don't think they can use the "just seeing the game out" excuse either. Both teams trying to get the ball into the box and win the ball back off their opponents, England's defence a bit more wobbly, Belgium's a bit more cynical.

Belgium walking the yellow cards contest though

:lol: yellow card watch is clearly the most fascinating part of this game.

Rose over Young in the R16 for me. TAA is doing well, but Trippier is still the one for that position

This game makes a lot more sense if you assume neither team want to win, defenders are running in completely the wrong direction at times ffs

So we definitely prefer the runner up spot? England were blatantly trying to score an own goal at one point.

Was Eden adopted?

Thorgans a MC/AMC I believe. Not sure what he's doing at wing back

This is the worst way to 'win' the group. Hardly great for momentum, the performance isn't even great.

Wish a better version of Dier gets uncovered over the coming years. 

Such a limited footballer, we need better players in those positions

Was this an issue at the previous world cups? The yellow cards thing.

Imagine getting tickets for this, thinking you'll see the best game of the group, then being served up with the worst game of the group.

In spite of the 9700000 passes between their back 3 Belgium look a little better

England seem to have almost no-one who can service Rashford and Vardy.

Yeah, it doesn't look like they're not trying to get the ball to them, it looks like they can't

Pizza time.

Go Belgian. Chips and mayo, a few leffes and maybe some chocolate for the better half

Yep, it's the biggest problem with this squad.

 

Thought Dier might come in against the better sides. Based on this no chance.

 

Alli's fitness looks key.

Hoddle banging on about "goal margins" to help decide the league placing is hilarious.

Especially how he thinks winning one game by 5 goals and another by 1 goal makes it better than two games by 3 goals each.

Danny Rose making a great case for being picked. Nobody else impressing greatly really. 

If Sterling had the performance Rashford is having Scott would be complaining.

I'd rather have Wilshere on one leg than a fully fit RLC.

This is my highlight of the whole World Cup so far, Hoddle not realising that goal difference is already a thing :D
