Wouldn’t mind a little more urgency from Walker coming forward.

Wouldn't want Walker going forward at all. Only guy stopping a Colombia counter.

Alli has to come off at half-time. We can't afford to effectively reduce ourselves to 10 men for most of the match, like we did against Tunisia.

I don't think Alli was fit enough to play.  Shame really.

Sterling is so frustrating to watch, I'd rather have Francis Jeffers up there at the moment.

Commentators such a joke. That contact on Henderson from the free-kick was minimal at best and yet they are banging on about how Henderson really felt that one and he's still down in pain, if that was a Neymar they'd be talking about him play-acting and milking it. Maybe it was a red card, but don't act as if Henderson is actually injured ffs.

Alli is starting because he is Alli. Which is insane because who the **** is Alli :D 

It's a man down. Stupid.

Well that was painful, maybe not as painful as what Ali just got down to him but painful all the same.

I've yet to see an objective commentary team when their country is playing.

Just can't happen.

It's not even about supporting your team, which is perfectly fine, but about spewing utter nonsense on every suspicious refereeing call and situation.

What a garbage half. England can’t get the ball under, Colombia can’t create **** when we give it to them.

Ref bottled that red card decision. 45 minutes to get a goal. But it doesnt look like coming.

They still have to show some degree of neutrality. Way the were talking anyone would think he nutter him once and knocked him out

He brushed his chin and Henderson went down like it was an uppercut. It maybe a red but dont overplay what it was

Definitely. About time we were as good at it as the others. Well done Jordan :D

Any chance both teams are eliminated today?

As I said I've had my jaw slammed shut before (mine was through a bike crash) and it sends shockwaves all through your head and cause a pretty mean headache for several minutes.

Going the same way as most recent England games. Come flying out of the blocks but if when we don't take advantage of our quick start the other team settle into the game and we look plodding and sort of ideas.

Colombia haven't offered anything though, hopefully a set piece falls our way.

It was the hypocrisy of it when there was that incident between Sterling & Mina too. People who wonder why the non-English in the UK don't get behind them? It's stuff like that.

ITVs approach has always been to talk up England and talk down the opposition. It’s why we always lose when we’re on ITV :D

Henderson made a meal of the headbutt, but it was a headbutt so they must be allowed now right

 

Alli & Sterling look the weaker links. Henderson has been our best player. Kane is sometimes to deep but is possibly forced to be

Everything is breaking down with Alli, Sterling and Young.

Kane has looked tremendous. Rashford running around in front of him instead of flicky, flicky, flick, flick from Sterling and Alli could be dangerous.

Coach elbowing Sterling then blaming him. These Colombians are very pathetic people. Hope we absolutely smash them so they can **** off home.
